Bj rn Lomborg is the best informed amp most humane advocate for environmental change in the world today In contrast to other figures that promote a single issue while ignoring others he views the globe as a whole studies all the problems ranks them amp determines how best amp in what order to address them His st book The Skeptical Environmentalist established the importance of a fact based approach With later books Global Crises Global Solutions amp How to Spend Billion to Make the World a Better Place this mild mannered Danish statistician has steadily gained new converts Not surprisingly Time named him one of the most influential people in the world Cool It will further enhance his reputation for global analysis amp thoughtful response For anyone who wants an overview of the global warming debate from an objective source this brief text is a good place to start He s only interested in real problems He s no patience with media fear mongering He begins by dispatching the myth of endangered polar bears showing that this Disneyesque cartoon has no relevance to the real world where polar bear populations are in fact increasing He considers the issue in detail citing sources from Al Gore to the World Wildlife Fund then demonstrating that polar bear populations have actually increased fivefold since the s He then works his way thru the concerns we hear so much about higher temperatures heat deaths species extinctions the cost of cutting carbon the technology to do it He believes in climate change despite his critics he s no denier but his fact based approach grounded in economic analyses leads him to a different view He reviews published estimates of the cost of climate change amp the cost of addressing it amp concludes that we actually end up paying more for a partial solution than the cost of the entire problem That is a bad deal In some of the most disturbing chapters he recounts what leading climate figures have said about anyone who questions the orthodoxy thus demonstrating the illiberal antidemocratic tone of the current debate He himself takes the larger view detailing why the tone of hysteria is inappropriate to addressing the problems In the end his concerns embrace the planet He contrasts our concern for climate with other concerns such as HIV AIDS malnutrition amp providing clean water In the end his ability to put climate in a global perspective is perhaps the book s greatest value Lomborg amp Cool It are our best guides to our shared environmental future Michael Crichton edited, The world has many pressing problems Thanks to the efforts of governments NGOs and individual activists there is no shortage of ideas for resolving them However even if all governments were willing to spend more money on solving the problems we cannot do it all at once We have to prioritize and in order to do this we need a better sense of the costs and benefits of each solution This book offers a rigorous overview of twenty three of the world s biggest problems relating to the environment governance economics and health and population Leading economists provide a short survey of the analysis and sketch out policy solutions for which they provide cost benefit ratios A unique feature is the provision of freely downloadable software which allows readers to make their own cost benefit calculations for spending money to make the world a better place, Watch Bjorn Lomborg on how Al Gore oversold the message on climate change and how we should be spending more on alternative energy research The failure of the Copenhagen climate conference in December revealed major flaws in the way the world s policy makers have attempted to prevent dangerous levels of increases in global temperatures The expert authors in this specially commissioned collection focus on the likely costs and benefits of a very wide range of policy options including geo engineering mitigation of CO methane and black carbon expanding forest research and development of low carbon energy and encouraging green technology transfer For each policy authors outline all of the costs benefits and likely outcomes in fully referenced clearly presented chapters accompanied by shorter critical alternative perspectives To further stimulate debate a panel of economists including three Nobel laureates evaluate and rank the attractiveness of the policies This authoritative and thought provoking book will challenge readers to form their own conclusions about the best ways to respond to global warming, The Skeptical Environmentalist challenges widely held beliefs that the environmental situation is getting worse and worse The author himself a former member of Greenpeace is critical of the way in which many environmental organisations make selective and misleading use of the scientific evidence Using the best available statistical information from internationally recognised research institutes Bj rn Lomborg systematically examines a range of major environmental problems that feature prominently in headline news across the world His arguments are presented in non technical accessible language and are carefully backed up by over footnotes allowing readers to check sources for themselves Concluding that there are more reasons for optimism than pessimism Bj rn Lomborg stresses the need for clear headed prioritisation of resources to tackle real not imagined problems The Skeptical Environmentalist offers readers a non partisan stocktaking exercise that serves as a useful corrective to the more alarmist accounts favoured by campaign groups and the media
