Clearing the air on climate change Talking to Bjorn Lomborg Sarah Lynch, December 14, 2010 Danish author and academic Bjorn Lomborg has such controversial views on climate change that Al Gore will not debate him. While he thinks global warming is real, he campaigns against immediate measures to cut carbon emissions, arguing that they are not cost effective. Lomborg became well-known in 2001 for his controversial book “The Skeptical Environmentalist,” in which he argued that many widely-published views on environmental matters are flat-out wrong. In 2004, Lomborg ranked on Time...

Financial Times: Europe needs real vision on climate

Published by Financial Times

By Bjørn Lomborg Published: December 9 2010 Barring last-minute upsets, the climate conference in Cancún will close on Friday having delivered on expectations that it would achieve nothing meaningful. As negotiators, commentators and campaigners head home, attention will turn to what happens next. Pundits and politicians in Europe will inevitably argue that we should “go it alone” and strengthen the European Union’s 20/20/20 policy, which aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions to 20 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020 and ensure 20 per cent renewable energy. The real lesson is...

They say that the effects of climate change are getting out of hand, and it is time to take action. We have heard this point many times before. With every "extreme weather event," passionate climate change activists ride a public wave of concern. Former Vice President Al Gore believes we must make drastic reductions in carbon emissions because weather-related disasters are on track to cost as much as $1 trillion by 2040. Mr...

Published by Dagens Nyheters

Efter klimatfiaskot i Köpenhamn misströstar många om ett bindande avtal om utsläppsminskningar. Men tänk om ett sådant avtal inte bara är svårt, utan även ineffektivt?
