Ekologiczny szczyt to dla klimatu nie nadzieja, lecz przekleństwo 2009-11-30 Propozycje, jakie padną w Kopenhadze, są nierealne - mówi Agatonowi Kozińskiemu znany duński ekolog Björn Lomborg Jest Pan bardzo sceptyczny, tymczasem wygląda na to, że świat naprawdę potrzebuje szybkich działań. Autorzy właśnie opublikowanego raportu "Copenhagen Diagnosis" przewidują, że do końca tego wieku temperatura na świecie wzrośnie aż o 7 stopni Celsjusza. Nie brzmi to zachęcająco.
