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.”

COP26: quem vai pagar a conta?

Published by O Globo

Na COP26, a maioria dos líderes das nações mais ricas tem se comprometido com a descarbonização de suas economias até meados deste século ou mesmo antes. Ainda assim, é altamente questionável se eles e seus sucessores quererão ou serão capazes de cumprir a promessa, à medida que custos cada vez maiores, de trilhões de dólares, venham a se tornar um fardo para os eleitores. Além disso, políticas climáticas que reduzam o crescimento dificilmente serão aceitas pelos países em desenvolvimento, que precisam tirar suas populações da pobreza e, para isso, dependem mais de novas emissões de carbono...

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called global warming “a doomsday device,” while United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said that humans are “killing ourselves with carbon.” They both get points for alliteration,...

Published by Le Monde

Fort soucieux de montrer leur leadership en matière de climat lors du sommet des Nations unies sur le climat à Glasgow lors de la COP26, les dirigeants du monde entier évoquent à nouveau d’ambitieux objectifs de réduction des émissions de carbone.

Climate related disasters killing less people

Published by Sky News

Copenhagen Consensus Centre President Bjorn Lomborg says there are constantly climate catastrophes and it’s very easy to claim them as global warming. “Global warming is real and it’s very likely that it does have an impact, but what you need to recognise is that because we are richer and more resilient we’ve dramatically drove down the number of people that die from climate-related disasters,” Mr Lomborg told Sky News Australia.
