Watch: Bjorn Lomborg dampens climate alarmism: ‘Much of the data is actually more encouraging than expected’


The alarming thing about climate alarmism

The narrative that the world’s climate is changing from bad to worse is unhelpful alarmism that prevents us from focusing on smart solutions.

Over the past 20 years, well-meaning environmentalists have ramped up the rhetoric and focused only on the bad news to make sure the public understands the importance of climate change. But this approach has distorted our climate conversation, as Bjorn Lomborg explains in his latest video for PragerU.

Zeroing in from 169 to 19 targets

Bjorn Lomborg discussed with Wall Street Journal‘s Mary Kissel the importance of being smart about spending. Focusing first on the development targets where we can achieve the most could do the same as doubling or quadrupling the aid budget. If we could spend the next 15 years’ development budget ($2.5 trillion) in the best possible way, we could do $62.5 trillion more good.
