The Skeptical Environmentalist

2008-05-16 by

Bjorn Lomborg, the “skeptical environmentalist,” presented a lecture on April 18, 2008 at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium.

Lomborg, a controversial political scientist from Denmark, does not dispute that the planet is hotter and getting more so. What he takes issue with is the panicky response he believes he sees in the general discussion and debate over global warming.

Lomborg is the author of “Cool It” and “The Skeptical Environmentalist.”
