So there's no eco-disaster after all.. everyone can relax, right?
Wrong. Comforting to imagine, but very very wrong.
Much of what's contained in this book is based on simple bad science. The online magazine Grist carried out a spectacular debunking of this book shortly after it came out, and the bottom line is that Lomborg is simply massaging our fears and the desires of the industry interests who want to be given a licence for unlimited environmental exploitation.
Fundamentally, this book is a nice, cosy hole in the sand for ostriches to stick their heads into. The rest of us can try to solve the problem, instead of pretending it isn't there.
