Remarks:

Note added on 2010-02-12: The link pointing to the quotation of Sir John Houghton is now broken. An alive link in the same server is http://www.parliament.the-stationery-office.co.uk/pa/ld200708/ldselect/ldeconaf/195/195we07.htm. However, it appears that the quotation is untrue (see http://environment.independentminds.livejournal.com/268431.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_T._Houghton). The correct quotation, which should replace that in slide 6, is " Global warming is now a weapon of mass destruction". This appears in Houghton’s article in the Guardian, http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2003/jul/28/environment.greenpolitics. (Update on 2010-08-22: see also http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/letters/7958485/What-is-the-best-way-to-help-the-worlds-deserving-poor.html, section "An apology withdrawn").
