Published by The Herland

The outcome of the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow (COP26) has been criticised by commentators as unambitious, with some like the delegates from Pacific island countries calling it a 'monumental failure'. Even the summit's host Boris Johnson admitted the deal was 'tinged with disappointment'. This is hardly surprising. Historically, most climate promises have fared badly.

Bjørn Lomborg: Find en smartere vej frem – ellers bliver de næste 26 klimamøder lige så ligegyldige som de første 26

Published by Berlingske

Ledere bør fokusere på innovation, der kan gøre grøn energi billigere. Mens politikerne ofte hævder, at grøn energi allerede er billigere, modsiges de af virkeligheden – hvis den var billigere, ville det ikke være nødvendigt at købslå i årevis med hundredvis af lande for at få dem til modstræbende at love at blive grønnere, skriver Bjørn Lomborg.

COMMENTARY: Green RD they key to fighting climate change

Published by Las Vegas Review Journal

Trying to showcase climate leadership at the U.N. Climate Summit in Glasgow, President Joe Biden is reaffirming his goal of creating “a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035 and net-zero emissions economy by no later than 2050.” But that target will be prohibitively expensive. A new Nature study shows that a 95 percent reduction by 2050 — almost within reach of Biden’s net-zero — would cost 11.9 percent of GDP or more than $11,000 for each American every year.

There needs to be a ‘sense of proportion’ on global warming: Bjørn Lomborg

Published by Sky News

Copenhagen Consensus Center President Bjørn Lomborg says global warming will have “mostly negative impacts”, but people need to have a “sense of proportion”. “When temperatures rise, you’re going to see more heat, and hence more heatwaves and hence more heat deaths,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt. “But what you don’t hear is that when temperatures rise, you also see less cold, less cold waves, and hence fewer cold deaths.”
