Climateer "Quote of the Day" (International Dateline Edition)

I always get screwed-up by the dateline.
Via Reuters AlertNet:
"This (climate change) is much too important to leave to environment ministers"
-Sir Nicholas Stern
to Finance Ministers basking in Bali
First runner-up:
"Climate change cannot be the icing on the cake of development policies"
-Robert Zoellick, President, World Bank

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick is expected to be named deputy to incoming Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice later this month, a Bush administration official said on January 6, 2005. Zoellick, seen in this July 31 file photo, had also been mentioned as a possible candidate for the presidency of the World Bank. [Reuters]
