Bjorn Lomborg on the bad climate thinking of COP 26
As COP 26 wrapped up, Bjorn Lomborg joined Alex Epstein to discuss the many examples of bad thinking that have shaped the conference, including:
- The false portrayal of today’s world as bad and getting worse.
- The failure to consider the costs of reducing CO2 emissions. - The failure to discuss the benefits human beings get from fossil fuels.
- The failure to consider any positive of CO2 emissions.
- The failure to appreciate the power of adapting to climate changes.
Additionally, Bjorn shares his thoughts on how to win more people over to thinking rationally about energy and climate.
