QUOTES

10 March, 2004
Greenpeace, the radical activist group based in Amsterdam, splashed its report on its website with a headline worthy of the National Inquirer: "Weather of mass destruction bigger threat than terrorism." Papers in London and other major European cities trumpeted Greenpeace's bizarre interpretation on their front pages as well. A second key area of Greenpeace's alarmist distortion is its claim that the report calls for "immediate action" implying that such actions involve curbing energy use and thus, reducing emissions of carbon dioxide. In reality, there is little discussion of man-made carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions in the Pentagon report.
