An Excellent book.
This is a must read for anyone interested in Global Warming. Professor Lomborg shows how much of the debate on the issue is riddled with mistakes and misquotes of the available research. These mistakes have led those that care about the environment to focus on a very expensive and limited result solution (i.e. Kyoto Protocol and variants). More importantly it has resulted in a sharp decrease in R&D on renewable energy and energy efficiency. The author argues with great clarity that it is the opposite that is required i.e. we need a great increase in R&D and that this offers a less expensive and real solution to Global Warming.
The book is very readable but also has an extensive Bibliography (1116 items) to allow the reader to properly assess any opinion and research.
You will be shocked by how such important politicians as Al Gore have made significant mistakes in their review of the research, which greatly confuses the Global Warming issue. However, the book should leave you optimistic that a solution is within our grasp.
