Somehow that article doesn't look like the original text that I read recently. In the original, almost every paragraph was couched with "if this happens then that happens". Greenie didn't really make any predictions, just statements of obvious fact: if A then B. The newswriters seem to be taking all of the "if's" off of the sentences and running them as statements: we will get A then B.

It wouldn't be Greenie (or any other academic) without ifs, ands, and buts.
