Lomborg's op-ed in Telegraph

Published by The Telegraph

By Bjorn Lomborg 02 Jul 2010 The EU's response to global warming is a costly mistake. Europe's 20/20/20 policy will cost billions of pounds, but yield only tiny results, writes Bjorn Lomborg . European leaders have a lot to deal with. The financial crisis has prompted several national stimulus packages and a joint effort to keep Greece afloat, while the EU is in danger of being outstripped by other economies that are growing faster, producing more efficiently and at lower costs. One bright spot is that politicians remain committed to responding to global warming. Unfortunately, their...

Lomborg's article in New Statesman

CLOUD CONTROL Drastic and immediate cuts in carbon emissions, as advocated by most of the green lobby, are an expensive way of doing very little good. They would reduce growth and especially hurt the world’s poor.

The framing began nearly a decade ago with discussions about the science of climate change. People who questioned the link between carbon emissions and warming were branded...

Lomborg's op-ed in USA Today: Earth Day: Smile, don't shudder

Published by USA Today

Earth Day: Smile, don't shudder By Bjorn Lomborg USA Today, Apr 21, 2010 Given all the talk of impending catastrophe, this may come as a surprise, but as we approach the 40th anniversary of the first Earth Day, people who care about the environment actually have a lot to celebrate. Of course, that's not how the organizers of Earth Day 2010 see it. In their view (to quote a recent online call to arms), "The world is in greater peril than ever." But consider this: In virtually every developed country, the air is more breathable and the water is more drinkable than it was in...

Lomborg's op-ed: Cars, Bombs, and Climate Change

Published by Project Syndicate

COPENHAGEN – For the better part of a decade, I have upset many climate activists by pointing out that there are far better ways to stop global warming than trying to persuade governments to force or bribe their citizens into slashing their reliance on fuels that emit carbon dioxide. What especially bugs my critics is the idea that cutting carbon is a cure that is worse than the disease – or, to put it in economic terms, that it would cost far more than the problem it is meant to solve. “How can that possibly be true?” they ask. “After all, we are talking about...
