The report quotes Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UNFCC, who has warned that the fossil fuel lobby is much louder, better funded, and operates much more in unison than those who will benefit from a move towards a low carbon economy. She warned that "if we don't have a voice that is equally as orchestrated with arguments that are at least equally as compelling, then governments are going to be taking very timid decisions and they're not going to be tipping the scale."

A Kinsley gaffe is when a political gaffe reveals some truth that a politician didn't intend to admit.[6][7] The term comes from journalist Michael Kinsley, who said, "A gaffe is when a politician tells the truth – some obvious truth he isn't supposed to say."[8][9]
