Why I'm Still Skeptical of Lomborg
"I'm not a scientist."
And , "Global warming is real."
He argues the money is better spent on AIDS and malaria. Hello? Both are "Hot Zone" evolutionary creations.
I will link his defenses to criticism mostly by Scientific American Magazine which isn't environmentally extreme except by the most conservative political standards, which have the lowest bar imaginable to begin with. Lomborg passes that one.
And to address the forest issue, a patchwork of new industrial tree farms is not the same as a healthy old growth forest. The latter is fire resistant, while the former, also a Lomborigan indicator of environmental health, is kindling for the catasptrophic wild fires we've seen lately. Even a child can make this critical distinction, yet Lomborg can't. Is it the business school? Because it isn't science.
