The Net-Zero Debate Turns Orwellian

Published by Forbes

Our current climate conversation embodies two blatantly contradictory claims. On one side, experts warn that promised climate policies will be economically crippling. In a new report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) states that achieving net-zero in 2050 will likely be “the greatest challenge humankind has ever faced.” That is a high bar, surpassing World War II, the black plague and Covid. On the other side, hand-waving politicians sell net-zero climate schemes as a near-utopia that every nation will rush to embrace. As John Kerry, US President Biden’s climate envoy, told world leaders...

The courts are no place to combat climate change

Published by New York Daily News

Despite intense climate worries, electorates have been unwilling to spend the trillions needed to cut emissions dramatically. That is why climate campaigners have increasingly pursued a new strategy: forcing climate policy through courts. Across the world, the UN now counts at least 1,550 such climate cases in 38 countries and more than a thousand just in the U.S., often filed by young people invoking a fear for their future. Unfortunately, such cases undermine democracy, harm the poor and sidetrack us from smarter ways to fix the climate.

A klímaperek a demokráciát ássák alá

Published by Portfolio

A klímaváltozással kapcsolatos súlyos aggodalmak ellenére a választópolgárok nem kívánnak ezer milliárdokat költeni az emisszió jelentős csökkentésére. Emiatt a klímavédelmi mozgalmak egyre inkább új stratégiát választanak: bíróságokon keresztül erőszakolják ki a klímavédelmi intézkedéseket. Szerte a világban az ENSZ legalább 1550 ilyen klímapert tart számon 38 országban, amelyeket gyakran a jövőjükért aggódó fiatalok indítanak. Sajnos, ezek a perek aláássák a demokráciát, ártanak a szegényeknek, és eltérítenek minket a klímaváltozás kezelésének okosabb eszközeitől.

Leaders ‘went out of their way to scare us’ at climate change summit

Published by Sky News

Environmental author Bjorn Lomborg says world leaders went “out of their way to scare us” at the recent climate change summit.“They both went out of their way to scare us, but also in some ways, it was a repeat of the last 30 years of climate policy,” Mr Lomborg told Sky News host Chris Smith. “Namely, let’s make grand promises for the future, and certainly in the past we’ve then seen, not much is going to happen”.
