An interesting commentary on the purpose behind Climate Change policy as reported by Investors Business Daily can be found here. The statement in question is from Ottmar Edenhofer - an easy name to google, but I found every little. He is a German economist and co-chair of the U.N. IPCC Working Group III on Mitigation of Climate Change. The interview is published in Neue Zurcher Zeitung. (No, I haven't personally read the root article, but have no reason to distrust the accuracy of available translations into English.)
There are various other comments on the article posted about the 'net here-and-there, mostly (as expected) on 'denier' web-sites. Still one should find it passing strange that no one else (AP, Wash Post, et.al.) are reporting on this AT ALL.
Hmmm. Too close to the Truth, perhaps?
