‘Skeptical environmentalist’ says best fix for global warming is to make everybody wealthy

Bjorn Lomborg, who recently claimed that polar-bear numbers were actually increasing and then had to abandon his claim when science intervened, says the best climate-change strategy is to “make the rest of the world as rich as New York” so all the people of the world can afford air conditioners.

On Hurricanes and Global Warming, Don't "Cool It" Too Much

Chris Mooney's weekly DeSmogBlog dispatch.

The Danish environmental apostate Bjorn Lomborg is at it again.

Lomborg has a new book out, and just like his last one (The Skeptical Environmentalist), it's drawing strong criticism. Lomborg's argument isn't that global warming is a hoax–thank goodness, we're mostly past that. Instead, he merely argues that climate change is not as big a deal as some think (e.g., Al Gore)–and further, that it doesn't make good economic sense to take dramatic steps to address the problem by imposing mandatory emissions caps.

Bjorn Lomborg's new book attacked by a polar bear

It seems there may be a bit of last minute damage control over at the Bjorn Lomborg camp.

A heavy piece of the marketing campaign for Lomborg's new book Cool It was the author's claim that polar bear populations are increasing. Lomborg uses this as evidence of his argument the consequences of global warming are more hype than reality.
