Björn Lomborg writes sense as usual

It is an unusual day when I find two articles of interest among the various publications that I get updates from in one day. But it happened today. Here is Björn Lomborg in the Wall Street Journal on the forthcoming Copenhagen warmingfest to which many people will come, undoubtedly by bicycle, rowing boat or horse and buggy. (Yes, that was sarcastic.)

Mr Lomborg is not exactly a sceptic in that he believes carbon emission does make a difference to global warming. He just does not believe some of the figures that people produce, pretending that they are scientifically substantiated; nor does he believe lots of meetings exuding hot air and various unfulfillable obligations that would destroy the world economy if they were fulfilled are the answer.

What is the answer then? Well, of course, technology. And no, not the phony stuff about windmills. Read the whole thing.
