So Lomborg was very clever to present himself as a centrist, but when you get into the details of his book he’s hardly a centrist. I think he would be fairly classified as a climate denier. He takes almost every climate related issue from polar bears to melting glaciers to rising sea levels, and in my view very problematically downplays the significance of the impact of global warming on these areas. So people would classify him as a sceptic that is one notch above a denier, but I would not do that, I think he’s close to being a climate denier based on his actual work.
Indeed. There’s also a reply from Lomborg and links to Lomborg’s response to Friel’s book and Friel’s rebuttal.
