Lomborg interview in the Third Way magazine

Published by Third Way

The self-styled 'sceptical environmentalist' Professor Bjørn Lomborg has for years been both extolled and excoriated. As he urges us all to 'cool it', Third Way got smart with him at the Copenhagen Consensus Center. The accolades you have received - three years ago, for example, the Guardian called you 'one of the 50 people who could save the planet' - are extraordinary. Would the people who knew you as a child have been surprised? I don't know. I think they would probably say they always knew I was a little bit weird, but they didn't know whether it was weird...

Lomborg's comment on Obama's talk

Published by Wall Street Journal

WSJ blog By Joseph B. White January 27, 2011 Obama’s Energy Shift: It’s Not About Climate (...) The new, 2011 Obama energy rhetoric appears to embrace the idea that the politically palatable way to cut greenhouse gas emissions is to make low-carbon energy cheaper, instead of using taxes or government-imposed limits to make coal and oil more expensive. That approach has been promoted by Danish economist Bjorn Lomborg and like-minded thinkers in the U.S. such as Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus of the Breakthrough Institute. (...)...

Ideas for a better world in 2011 In many ways, 2010 is a year you may want to relegate to the filing cabinet quickly. It began with a massive earthquake in Haiti and wound down with North Korea once again being an enfant terrible – bizarrely trying to conduct diplomacy through brinkmanship. (...)...

Interview with Lomborg in Now Lebanon "Talking To" column

Published by Now! Lebanon

Clearing the air on climate change Talking to Bjorn Lomborg Sarah Lynch, December 14, 2010 Danish author and academic Bjorn Lomborg has such controversial views on climate change that Al Gore will not debate him. While he thinks global warming is real, he campaigns against immediate measures to cut carbon emissions, arguing that they are not cost effective. Lomborg became well-known in 2001 for his controversial book “The Skeptical Environmentalist,” in which he argued that many widely-published views on environmental matters are flat-out wrong. In 2004, Lomborg ranked on Time...

Lomborg's views in Environmental Health Perspective

Published by Environmental Health Perspective

Bjørn Lomborg, a Danish writer and author of The Skeptical Environmentalist,11 argues that if imposed today, efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 (one goal of the Obama administration) would cost trillions of dollars and inflict more pain than climate change itself. Not surprisingly, governments won’t agree to those costs, he says, which is why international meetings like the Copenhagen conference fail every time they’re held. “One of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different outcome,” Lomborg...
