[Jack is speaking at a global warming convention in New Delhi]

Jack Hall:
What I do know, is that if we do not act soon, it is our children and our grandchildren who will have to pay the price.

Vice-President Raymond Becker:
And who's going to pay the price of the Kyoto accord? It would cost the world's economy hundreds of billions of dollars.

Hall:
With all due respect, Mr. Vice-President, the cost of doing nothing could be even higher. Our climate is fragile. At the rate we're burning fossil fuels and polluting the environment, the ice caps will soon disappear.

Becker:
Professor, uh, Hall, our economy is every bit as fragile as the environment. Perhaps you should keep that in mind before making sensationalist claims.

Hall:
Well, the last chunk of ice that broke off was about the size of the state of Rhode Island. Some people might call that pretty sensational. [Attendees chuckle]
