Quote Used To Discredit Climate Scientist is Fabricated

Sir John Houghton, eminent climate scientist and author of Global Warming: The Complete Briefing, is alleged to have "sexed up" scare stories on global warming by saying "Unless we announce disasters, no one will listen,"

He denies ever saying this, and according to another author and climate skeptic Christopher Booker, Houghton was supposed to have stated this in his own book, which was first published in 1994. The comment does not appear in Houghton's book however, or the later edition, and he denies ever saying it... Seems to be a case of climate skeptics jumping on false comments to support their own skeptical agenda.
