Today’s Soaring Energy Prices Are Only the Beginning

Published by Wall Street Journal

Energy prices are soaring, and it’s likely a sign of things to come. The rise can be blamed on a variety of things, including the demand rebound after the lockdowns ended, a drop in renewable electricity output from a lack of wind in Europe during most of 2021, and increasingly costly climate policies. But while the pandemic will end and the wind will blow again, climate policies to achieve “net zero” emissions will keep hiking prices.

Green energy: There is a way to beat climate change but COP26 snubbed it

Published by The Herland

The outcome of the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow (COP26) has been criticised by commentators as unambitious, with some like the delegates from Pacific island countries calling it a 'monumental failure'. Even the summit's host Boris Johnson admitted the deal was 'tinged with disappointment'. This is hardly surprising. Historically, most climate promises have fared badly.

Bjørn Lomborg: Find en smartere vej frem – ellers bliver de næste 26 klimamøder lige så ligegyldige som de første 26

Published by Berlingske

Ledere bør fokusere på innovation, der kan gøre grøn energi billigere. Mens politikerne ofte hævder, at grøn energi allerede er billigere, modsiges de af virkeligheden – hvis den var billigere, ville det ikke være nødvendigt at købslå i årevis med hundredvis af lande for at få dem til modstræbende at love at blive grønnere, skriver Bjørn Lomborg.

COMMENTARY: Green RD they key to fighting climate change

Published by Las Vegas Review Journal

Trying to showcase climate leadership at the U.N. Climate Summit in Glasgow, President Joe Biden is reaffirming his goal of creating “a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035 and net-zero emissions economy by no later than 2050.” But that target will be prohibitively expensive. A new Nature study shows that a 95 percent reduction by 2050 — almost within reach of Biden’s net-zero — would cost 11.9 percent of GDP or more than $11,000 for each American every year.

Bjorn Lomborg on the bad climate thinking of COP 26

Published by Power Hour - Alex Epstein Show

As COP 26 wrapped up, Bjorn Lomborg joined Alex Epstein to discuss the many examples of bad thinking that have shaped the conference, including: - The false portrayal of today’s world as bad and getting worse. - The failure to consider the costs of reducing CO2 emissions. - The failure to discuss the benefits human beings get from fossil fuels. - The failure to consider any positive of CO2 emissions. - The failure to appreciate the power of adapting to climate changes. Additionally, Bjorn shares his thoughts on how to win more people over to thinking rationally about energy and climate.

There needs to be a ‘sense of proportion’ on global warming: Bjørn Lomborg

Published by Sky News

Copenhagen Consensus Center President Bjørn Lomborg says global warming will have “mostly negative impacts”, but people need to have a “sense of proportion”. “When temperatures rise, you’re going to see more heat, and hence more heatwaves and hence more heat deaths,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt. “But what you don’t hear is that when temperatures rise, you also see less cold, less cold waves, and hence fewer cold deaths.”

« Avec une énergie verte moins chère que celle des combustibles fossiles, le problème du réchauffement climatique serait résolu »

Published by Le Monde

Fort soucieux de montrer leur leadership en matière de climat lors du sommet des Nations unies sur le climat à Glasgow lors de la COP26, les dirigeants du monde entier évoquent à nouveau d’ambitieux objectifs de réduction des émissions de carbone. Le président américain Joe Biden, par exemple, s’est fixé pour objectif de créer « un secteur de l’électricité sans pollution par le carbone d’ici 2035 et une économie à émissions nettes nulles au plus tard en 2050 ».
