Bjorn Lomborg: Ilmastopelottelusta enemmän haittaa kuin hyötyä

Skeptics Handbook

Bjorn Lomborg Taipei Times

Bjorn Lomborg, the director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, is an adjunct professor at the Copenhagen Business School and author of The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist’s Guide to Global Warming.

"Worrying excessively about global warming means that we worry less about other things, where we could do so much more good. We focus, for example, on global warming’s impact on malaria — which will be to put slightly more people at risk in 100 years — instead of tackling the half-billion people suffering from malaria today with prevention and treatment policies that are much cheaper and dramatically more effective than carbon reduction would be"

  1. Skeptical Environmentalist oli ajatuksia herättävä ja kohu oli niin kova, että hyllyyn opus piti hankkia. Tämä lienee kampanjatuote samanmielisille? Pitänee kuitenkin selata jos vaikka jotain uutta ilmenisi.
