In this speech delivered at a function given at the Manhattan Institute, Bjorn Lomborg discusses the topics he covers in his book Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist’s Guide to Global Warming
As Cool It and this video reveals Bjorn Lomborg is not a climate skeptic in the least. He has said time and again climate change is real and thinks humans are the cause. To his credit, he does not, however, buy in to the climate change hysteria put forth by Al Gore and environmentalist groups. Rather than penalizing businesses and people in order to curb climate change, Lomborg points out more cost effective alternatives to help reduce poverty, disease and improve education.
Bjorn Lomborg’s main thrust is that Earth’s climate has always changed and there are more effective measures that can be used to mitigate it without imposing onerous rules and taxes on the economy. In short, he believes we can adapt and survive like humans have done for thousands of years.
