«Al Gore difunde falsas evidencias»

Published by Publico

El autor de El ecologista escéptico, Bjorn Lomborg, propone en un nuevo libro acabar con Kioto y destinar el dinero a la lucha contra el sida y la malaria "El texto emplea la estrategia de aquellos que niegan que los judíos fueran seleccionados por los nazis para el exterminio". Así se despachaba la revista Nature en una crítica feroz al libro El ecologista escéptico, publicado en 2001. Su autor, el politólogo danés Bjorn Lomborg (Copenhague, 1965), está en España para presentar la secuela, En frío (ambos editados por Espasa), una guía que propone enterrar el Protocolo de Kioto y...

Bjorn Lomborg's advice for President-elect Obama on the cover of WSJ

Published by Wall Street Journal

A New Dawn, by BJøRN LOMBORG The benefits of climate-change policies are limited and costly. Instead, the president-elect needs to coolly evaluate competing priorities, says Bjørn Lomborg. Most generations face large and daunting challenges. But few generations have the promise of leadership that could address them rationally. Fortunately, President-elect Obama is uniquely positioned to achieve such a feat and help the world solve some of its most entrenched issues. He will be swamped with suggestions as to what to do first -- perhaps none more impassioned than those who advocate dealing with...

Lomborg in Polska Times

Published by Polska Times

O rozpoczęcie zielonej rewolucji apelują największe autorytety, z Thomasem L. Friedmanem na czele. Pan tymczasem twierdzi, że to "zielona pseudorewolucja". Czemu jest Pan tak sceptyczny wobec tego pomysłu? Odnoszę wrażenie, że ludzie, którzy wzywają do zielonej rewolucji, tak naprawdę niewiele robią dla środowiska. Obecny system jego ochrony jest źle skonstruowany. (...)...

Lomborg: why a Green Revolution is the wrong answer to tackling global warming

Published by The Guardian

The Green Pseudo Revolution - Lomborg's latest op-ed in the Guardian, Nov 14 2008. With a worldwide recession advancing, strong action on global warming has been thrown into jeopardy. This matters, because in little more than a year, the world will sit down in Copenhagen to negotiate the follow-on treaty to the failed Kyoto Protocol. Yet, with people losing jobs and income, immediate economic help seems to matter more than temperature differentials 100 years from now. (...)...

Europe, Japan Face $46 Billion Global-Warming Penalty

Published by Bloomberg

Twenty nations including Japan, Italy and Australia may be releasing more greenhouse-gas pollution than they agreed to under the Kyoto treaty to curb global warming. They're failing to rein in carbon-dioxide output enough to meet their pledges signed in 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, according to reports by individual countries. As a penalty for missing their goals under the treaty, the nations are required to buy permits for every excess ton of the heat-trapping gas released through 2012. That will total 2.3 billion permits for 20 nations, New Carbon Finance, a research firm in London, has...
