Interview with Lomborg in Policy (CIS-Australia)

Published by The Centre for Independent Studies

In January 2010, Lomborg was interviewed by Joel Malan, an Australian now living in Copenhagen. JM: The Skeptical Environmentalist drew on your background in statistics to reach a more holistic interpretation of existing research. I understand you are not a climatologist as such, but what contribution can statistics make to the climate change debate? BL: It’s about looking at what are the actual and aggregated impacts.

Ekonomia walki z globalnym ociepleniem

Published by Racjonalista

Autor tekstu: Bjørn Lomborg Przez większą część tego dziesięciolecia irytowałem aktywistów na rzecz walki z globalnym ociepleniem wskazując, że istnieją lepsze sposoby powstrzymania zmian klimatycznych niż próba przekonania rządów, by zmusiły lub przekupiły obywateli do drastycznego obcięcia zależności od paliw emitujących dwutlenek węgla.
