Paris is Not the Solution

Published by Project Syndicate

President Donald Trump’s withdrawal of the United States from the Paris climate agreement leaves the US without a global warming policy. That is alarming.

The Charade of the Paris Treaty

Published by The Wall Street Journal

Environmentalists were aghast when President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate treaty, with some declaring that the very survival of our civilization was at stake. But is the Paris accord really all that stands between the planet and the worst of climate change? Certainly not. This is not to deny that President Trump’s announcement was problematic. He failed to acknowledge that global warming is real and wrongly claimed that China and India are the “world’s leading polluters.”

Bjørn Lomborg: »Trumps udmeldelse er en mulighed for hele verden«

Published by Jyllands-Posten

"Efter USA i aftes meldte sig ud af Parisaftalen, har der været mange kritikere på banen, men en af dem, som er positive over for beslutningen, er Bjørn Lomborg, der er politolog og har skrevet flere bøger om klimaet. Han er kendt for sine kontroversielle holdninger i miljødebatten - og ikke mindst for at mene, at menneskeskabt global opvarmning ikke er så alvorligt og ofte bliver overdrevet."

A path forward after the Paris climate agreement

Published by The Globe and Mail

Like the Kyoto Protocol before it, the drastically over-hyped Paris climate treaty has fallen victim to political and economic reality. Now that President Donald Trump has officially pulled the United States from the accord, it is time to declare the entire Kyoto-Paris approach to global warming dead and buried.

The clear message, reinforced by leaders from the European Union and China, is that the rest of the world will continue with the Paris Treaty without US involvement.
