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.

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. (...)...
