Bishop Hill posts a speech by Matt Ridley. I agree with much of the first half but it goes very quickly pear shaped once he gets on the subject of climate change.

Anyway, I'm trying to get into the habit of whenever encountering quotable myths from deniers, adding them to the database via our Add Quote form (and encourage others to do the same). The more quotes, the more powerful this resource and the more applications it will have (particularly if we get lots of cases of deniers contradicting each other). 

Here is Matt Ridley's quotes so far.
