Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

The Skeptical Environmentalist

Instead of throwing away money on “feel-good” initiatives like recycling and building wind turbines to curb global warming, Danish environmental writer Bjorn Lomborg says there are plenty of less sexy and less costly projects that could be undertaken that would have a much more dramatic and positive environmental impact. Lomborg, the author of The Skeptical Environmentalist, shares his ideas here with New York Times science columnist John Tierney.

“The thing that blows my mind is that we spend so much money on feeling good,” says Lomborg. “I would like us to do stuff that actually works.”  The two appeared for a talk at New York’s Museum of Sex, sponsored by the Reason Foundation.
