Published by Ekstra Bladet

Når han ikke lige snakker om klima og miljø, er pizza og PlayStation det bedste Bjørn Lomborg ved 05. jun 2011 Jacob Ørsted - Hvad glæder du dig til i nærmeste fremtid? - For tiden glæder jeg mig allermest til en god debat med et dansk publikum om min nye film 'Cool it'.

Published by Racjonalista

Zadnych elektrowni nuklearnych? Autor tekstu: Bjørn Lomborg Tekst oryginału. Project Syndicate, 13 kwietnia 2011 Kiedy część Japonii została niedawno zdewastowana przez trzęsienie ziemi i następujące po nim tsunami, informacje o ludzkich ofiarach zostały szybko przyćmione przez globalny niepokój o opad radioaktywny z elektrowni nuklearnej Fukuszima Daiczi. Niepokój był zrozumiały: promieniowanie bardzo przeraża. Dorastałem w Danii w czasach, kiedy strach przed energią nuklearną był wszechobecny.
