Bjorn Lomborg: ‘Climate Change Will NOT End Life on Earth’

As the COP26 summit meets over the next couple of weeks in Glasgow, we can all expect to be bombarded with disaster scenarios, replete with stories about our species’ imminent demise. Over the last couple of days, we have had Boris Johnson warning that it is “one minute to midnight” and Prince Charles claiming that this is “literally our last chance saloon.”And of course, Greta Thunberg has already made a few appearances of her own, accusing politicians of “pretending to take our future seriously” and saying that COP26 will “lead us nowhere”.

Bjorn Lomborg takes a different view. His latest book, False Alarm: how climate change panic costs us trillions, hurts the poor, and fails to fix the planet, sets out his argument that, although climate change is likely a real problem, the radical alarmism is counter-productive and will bankrupt governments and lower the overall standard of living for everyone (except the elites who are pushing the green agenda).
