KCRW interview, TO THE POINT

Published by KCRW Radio

China and a New Age of Energy WED JUL 21, 2010 Host: Warren Olney China Overtakes US in Energy Consumption (12:07PM) China has now become the world's biggest consumer of energy. Because of the recession, it overcame the US five years sooner than anybody expected. That means more competition for limited resources, more clout for countries the US doesn't like, and, in the short run, more environmental pollution. What will it mean for green technology, especially if the US continues to lead the way in research while China does the manufacturing? We look at the vast implications of what...

Lomborg's op-ed in Telegraph

Published by The Telegraph

By Bjorn Lomborg 02 Jul 2010 The EU's response to global warming is a costly mistake. Europe's 20/20/20 policy will cost billions of pounds, but yield only tiny results, writes Bjorn Lomborg . European leaders have a lot to deal with. The financial crisis has prompted several national stimulus packages and a joint effort to keep Greece afloat, while the EU is in danger of being outstripped by other economies that are growing faster, producing more efficiently and at lower costs. One bright spot is that politicians remain committed to responding to global warming. Unfortunately, their...

Published by BBC

June 28 8:30pm BBC1 We’re told another barbecue summer and droughts are on the way - but do you really trust the predictions any more?

After one of the coldest winters on record and a vicious row about the science behind climate change, Panorama goes back to basics and asks what we really know about our climate and how it will affect us. Panorama reporter Tom Heap speaks to some of the world's leading scientists on both...

Lomborg's article in New Statesman

CLOUD CONTROL Drastic and immediate cuts in carbon emissions, as advocated by most of the green lobby, are an expensive way of doing very little good. They would reduce growth and especially hurt the world’s poor. But there is another, better way There is a disturbing tendency among many in the climate debate today to deride as "deniers" anyone who does not advocate making huge and immediate carbon cuts. The framing began nearly a decade ago with discussions about the science of climate change. People who questioned the link between carbon emissions and warming were branded...
