Tomme symbolhandlinger redder ikke klimaet. Lomborg har ret. (Engelsk)

De fromme klimaaktivister, der tager cyklen, spiser grønt, kører elbil og flyver mindre tager fokus fra det egentlige problem, mener Bjørn Lomborg. Vi giver ham ret. De frelste har det nok ret meget bedre selv indtil katastofen, men de undgår den ikke

MALMÖ – Switch to energy-efficient light bulbs, wash your clothes in cold water, eat less meat, recycle more, and buy an electric car: we are being bombarded with instructions from climate campaigners, environmentalists, and the media about the everyday steps we all must take to tackle climate change. Unfortunately, these appeals trivialize the challenge of global warming, and divert our attention from the huge technological and policy changes that are needed to combat it.
