-- Caleb Warnock, on another IPCC member who's come to his senses - finally - about this whole NewAge-inspired global warming/climate change scare, which he now says, "is largely solved and there is some question whether it ever existed. They don't talk about it anymore", though he's still talking about it in Utah's Daily Herald.
