Not So Hot

Published by Foreign Policy

By Bjørn Lomborg, in Foreign Policy September 26 was a triumph for public relations. An organization called DARA launched a report called "Climate Vulnerability Monitor 2nd Edition. A Guide to the Cold Calculus of a Hot Planet." The study, sponsored by 20 countries, projected some astoundingly large impacts from climate change, both on the number of deaths and the economic impacts.

Dobra Nowina

Published by Racjonalista

Autor tekstu: Bjørn Lomborg Tłumaczenie: Małgorzata Koraszewska Tego lata warunki pogodowe na całym świecie dostarczyły obfitej pożywki debacie o globalnym ociepleniu. Susza i fale upałów są zwiastunami naszej przyszłości, obcięcie emisji dwutlenku węgla jest bardziej potrzebne teraz niż kiedykolwiek, niemniej nie wdrożono sensownej polityki w tej sprawie.

Bjørn Lomborg og en værdikommission blev de eneste ofre. Besparelse: 12 mio. kr. Endnu en af S-SF’s økonomiske finansieringskilder fra før valget er faldet til jorden med et brag. Regeringen har opgivet at finde andet end en brøkdel af det beløb, de varslede før valget i form af et opgør med »råd og nævn til borgerlige debattører«. I det daværende regeringsalternativs 2020-plan fra sidste...
