Lomborg's op-ed in Washington Post:Cost-effective ways to address climate change

Published by Washington Post

By Bjorn Lomborg Wednesday, November 17, 2010 One of the scarier predictions about global warming is the suggestion that melting glaciers and ice caps could cause sea levels to rise as much as 15 to 20 feet over the next century.

Lomborg op-ed: A Return to Reason

Published by Project Syndicate
