You can't trust anybody with power.
Nature is not simply a technical or economical resource, and human beings are not mere numbers. To suggest that one can somehow align all the squabbling institutions of science, environmental management, government and diplomacy in an alliance of convenience to regulate the global climate seems to me optimistic.
Intelligence is the wife, imagination is the mistress, memory is the servant.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
