From Bjorn Lomborg:
September 26 was a triumph for public relations. An organization called DARA launched a report called "Climate Vulnerability Monitor 2nd Edition. A Guide to the Cold Calculus of a Hot Planet." The study, sponsored by 20 countries, projected some astoundingly large impacts from climate change, both on the number of deaths and the economic impacts. The report has produced a media heyday for climate alarmism...
[With the DARA study] we have a study that inflated deaths by at least 12 times. We have a study that has inflated the costs by at least three times -- and probably much, much more. And we have a study that then suggests that to avoid this situation in 2030, we should employ policies that we know will have no measurable impact by 2030.
One could call such a study many things, but clearly not well done, truthful, or good policy advice...
Lomborg ('The Skeptical Environmentalist') is a level-headed guy who approaches environmentalist claims with the skepticism they deserve. If he had been around to be consulted on the DDT hysteria of the 1970's, 50 million malaria victims might be alive today.
Unlike global warming deaths, deaths from environmentalist policies actually happen-- in the tens of millions.
For those of you still naive enough to actually believe an environmentalist prediction, I caution you to consider the impact of this global warming holocaust on the 50 million climate refugees rendered homeless in 2010.
