WASHINGTON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Under pressure to resign for declining to say whether he accepts the scientific consensus on global warming, World Bank President David Malpass said on Thursday it was clear greenhouse emissions are causing climate change and defended his record as bank chief.

Malpass sought to restate his views in a note to staff and an interview on CNN International, during which he was asked if he was a climate change denier. His views drew scrutiny after he refused to say during a public event this week whether he believes fossil fuel burning is warming the planet.

wouldn't there be more value selling his 'oil' in the private market?

some one who's been there, has credibility, could make 'bank' by spilling the beans...and having a security detail at all times


much more than following a caravan of losers who's only notoriety is they haven't killed this guy yet...

Sounds like he learned his lesson and apologized like a slobbering fool.
We shan't do that again now will we?

Off Topic: this guy is a fabulous example of bankers failing forwards. He was chief economist at Bear Stearns from 1993 - 2008, apparently his economic forecasts couldn't see the subprime implosion that your average GIMmer saw coming. After Bear Stears was sold for 6 cents on the dollar, he gets appointed to head up the World Bank.
