Lomborg, Global Warming Denier Says Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist's Guide to Global Warming

Lomborg, an economist and Adjunct (Connected to in subordinate temporary position) Professor in his book talk on C-Span shows he is a skilled Google User to Pick Out Only Information that helps his case.

He speaks well and convincingly unless you happen to have a modicum of knowledge about global warming climate change. He admits there is global warming, but it is so slow that it is not worth addressing it until it gets much worse. He neglects telling the audience that once the temperature starts going up faster, it is too late to save us.

Some of Lomborg's Statements:
1. Malaria and other deadly tropical diseases can be controlled so it will be no problem.
2. It costs too much money to control the insignificant global warming occurring!
3. The climate scientists are wrong and sea levels won't rise significantly. Of course he does not talk about what happened in the past when the glaciers were not present when sea levels were up almost 30 feet and higher places like Montana had ocean sentiments. He assumes it will go up only one-two feet, contrary to what the climate scientists are now saying after the acceleration of the Antarctica and Greenland glaciers going into the ocean at a much faster melt and decomposition rate.
4. He said that storms have not become more violent and more frequent. Ask the people of Bangladesh
5. He also neglected to mention that melting permafrost would release much more carbon dioxide and methane which is 24 times worst warming gas from plant bacteria decomposition products.
