Published by The Times

Lomborg's article in The Times, Sept 30, 2008. Global warming: why cut one 3,000th of a degree? Britain's efforts to reduce the speed of global warming will cost huge sums of money and have a pitifully tiny effect. Global warming is seen everywhere as one of the most important issues. From the EU to the G8, leaders trip over one another to affirm their commitment to cutting CO2 to heal the world.

It's a heavily politicized screaming match, with claims and counterclaims bombarding you from all directions. What can we do? And who the heck can we believe? If you're in this fix, Bjorn Lomborg is your man. The Danish environmentalist has just published an essential guide for the perplexed, called Cool It.
