Lomborg's comment on Obama's talk

Published by Wall Street Journal

WSJ blog By Joseph B. White January 27, 2011 Obama’s Energy Shift: It’s Not About Climate (...) The new, 2011 Obama energy rhetoric appears to embrace the idea that the politically palatable way to cut greenhouse gas emissions is to make low-carbon energy cheaper, instead of using taxes or government-imposed limits to make coal and oil more expensive. That approach has been promoted by Danish economist Bjorn Lomborg and like-minded thinkers in the U.S. such as Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus of the Breakthrough Institute. (...)...

Ideas for a better world in 2011 In many ways, 2010 is a year you may want to relegate to the filing cabinet quickly.

Lomborg's views in Environmental Health Perspective

Published by Environmental Health Perspective

Bjørn Lomborg, a Danish writer and author of The Skeptical Environmentalist,11 argues that if imposed today, efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 (one goal of the Obama administration) would cost trillions of dollars and inflict more pain than climate change itself. Not surprisingly, governments won’t agree to those costs, he says, which is why international meetings like the Copenhagen conference fail every time they’re held. “One of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different outcome,” Lomborg...
