Lomborg's Misdirection Defined and Dismissed

This analysis in the Scottish Sunday Herald gets nicely to the point of why the mischievously misdirecting Bjorn Lomborg is damaging the global conversation about climate change.

“Lomborg says Kyoto is a misallocation of resources which should have gone to the Third World. But America’s boycott of Kyoto in 1998 didn’t lead to more resources for the wretched of the earth.

There have been no petrodollars flooding into sub-Saharan Africa. The US still allocates the lowest percentage of GDP to development of any industrialised country. All Lomborg’s arguments do is delay any action about climate change, which is why he is so popular with American corporate interests.”

Out of Balance Another Climate Film

So it seems that 2006 will be remembered as the year of the climate film. How many more can we fit into the final three months? Any guesses?     

No complaints here, though, because what it means is that this is an issue that has truly taken root in popular consciousness, at long last.
