COP26, otra reunión intrascendente

Published by Milenio

El resultado de la Cumbre del Clima de la ONU en Glasgow (COP26) ha sido criticado por los comentaristas como poco ambicioso y algunos lo califican de “fracaso monumental”. Incluso el anfitrión de la cumbre, el primer ministro británico, Boris Johnson, admitió que el acuerdo estaba “teñido de decepción”. No es de extrañar: históricamente, la mayoría de las promesas sobre el clima han salido mal.

Green energy: There is a way to beat climate change but COP26 snubbed it

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.

Bjorn Lomborg on the bad climate thinking of COP 26

Published by Power Hour - Alex Epstein Show

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.

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...

A Reasonable Alternative to COP26 and Preaching Climate Doom

Published by Wall Street Journal

Politicians at the Glasgow climate conference seem to be competing to come up with the most outrageously dire forecast. 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,...
