2012-07-16 Mezi stále se navracející témata křiklavě neúspěšného červnového summitu Organizace spojených národů Rio+20 byla potřeba změnit způsob, jímž měříme bohatství. Mnozí lidé tvrdí, že musíme odhodit naši "posedlost" hrubým domácím produktem a vyvinout nový, "zelený" účetní standard, který ho nahradí. Ve skutečnosti by takový krok mohl být vážnou chybou. (...)

The Telegraph, 19 Jun 2012 By Bjorn Lomborg Rio+20: Right sentiment, wrong problems, poor solutions World leaders gathered in Rio for the Rio+20 Earth Summit are looking at the wrong problems, writes Bjorn Lomborg.

Environmental Alarmism, Then and Now

Published by Foreign Affairs

FOREIGN AFFAIRS 2012 July/August By Bjorn Lomborg. Forty years ago, humanity was warned: by chasing ever-greater economic growth, it was sentencing itself to catastrophe.
