Klimasortsyn forvrænger vores verdensanskuelse og kan føre til dårlig politik

Published by Berlingske

De fleste mennesker på Jorden vågner hver morgen med den opfattelse, at tingene bliver værre og værre. Det er der ikke noget at sige til i betragtning af det, de jævnligt læser i avisen eller ser i fjernsynet. Men dette sortsyn er et problem, for det fæster lid til skrækhistorier om, at klimaændringer vil ende i Ragnarok.

Published by Listy z naszego sadu

Na rok przed kolejnymi wyborami prezydenckimi w USA gorączka wokół globalnego ocieplenia jest większa niż kiedykolwiek. Podczas gdy niektórzy politycy nadal utrzymują (niesłusznie), że to wszystko jest wymyślone, znacznie więcej polityków zapewnia (równie niesłusznie), że stoimy w obliczu zbliżającego się klimatycznego kryzysu zagrażającego naszej cywilizacji.

Vegetarianism as Climate Virtue Signaling

Published by Wall Street Journal

‘Eat Less Meat” is the typical headline used to present a new United Nations report on climate change released Thursday. The report correctly points to the need to improve global food systems, but pundits are fixating on the supposed need for people in rich countries to change their dining habits radically.

Pseudo scientific hysteria is the wrong answer to climate change
