The Skeptical Environmentalist's Guide to Global Warming (#139)
Bjorn Lomborg, author of The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It, is the director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center and an adjunct professor at the Copenhagen Business School. In 2004, TIME Magazine named him one of the "100 globally most influential people," and the UK's Guardian newspaper recently named him one of the "50 people who could save the planet." An environmental conservative, Lomborg has questioned the priority given to solving global climate change, arguing that we should first focus our resources on more immediate concerns, such as fighting malaria and HIV/AIDS and assuring a safe, fresh water supply. Mr. Lomborg appears as a featured speaker at ISU's World Affairs Series. [52 minutes]
