Bjorn Lomborg Quotes

Please enjoy these encouraging quotes by Bjorn Lomborg.

On average, global warming is not going to harm the developing world.
- Bjorn Lomborg

We have to be aware that the scientific community throws
up tons of different hypotheses and at a certain point
we'll find out who was right and who was wrong.
But we have to go with the best information right now,
which I would claim to be the IPCC reports.
- Bjorn Lomborg

My suggestion is that we should first work to ensure
the Third World has clean drinking water and sanitation.
- Bjorn Lomborg

Obviously any group that has to have funding also needs
to get attention to their issues.
- Bjorn Lomborg

 

The obvious issue is providing clean drinking water
and sanitation to every single human being on earth
at the cost of little more than one year of the Kyoto treaty.
- Bjorn Lomborg

When a business group tells us there is nothing wrong with the environment,
naturally they may have good arguments,
but we are also sceptical, because we know that they
have an interest in these things.
- Bjorn Lomborg

The fact that we're catching more fish per person than
we've ever done before doesn't mean that there are
not particular places where we've managed fisheries badly.

So it's mainly a question of helping the Third World
overcome the effects of global warming.
- Bjorn Lomborg

I think it's great that we have organisations like Greenpeace.
In a pluralistic society, we want to have people who
point out all the problems that the Earth could encounter.
But we need to understand that they are not presenting a full and rounded view.
- Bjorn Lomborg

Think on a 50-year scale, which is a much more natural
time-scale for global warming.
The US is right now spending about 200 million dollars
annually on research into renewable energy.
- Bjorn Lomborg

But this is an occupational hazard of being a scientist.
You say this is the best information I have and then
you realize that not everyone is going to read the
footnotes or the whole book,
so people are going to get the wrong impression.
- Bjorn Lomborg

There is no doubt that we should take solar radiation into account.
We have seen ground temperatures rising since 1975,
and it is important to know to what extent that has
been caused by the sun or by carbon dioxide.
- Bjorn Lomborg

I really try to say things as they basically are and
it so happens that it is a good message that things are getting better,
but there are still problems.
- Bjorn Lomborg

A review was published in Nature, very scathing,
essentially calling me incompetent, though they didn't use that word.
I am putting a reply on my Web site in a few days,
where I go through their arguments, paragraph by paragraph.
- Bjorn Lomborg

The second thing is, if you want to do something about global warming,
you have to think much more long-term.
There is something wrong with saying we should start using renewables now,
while they are still incredibly expensive.
- Bjorn Lomborg

The Kyoto treaty has an estimated cost of between US$150 and $350 billion a year,
starting in 2010.
- Bjorn Lomborg

Just because there is a problem doesn't mean that we have to solve it,
if the cure is going to be more expensive than the original ailment.
- Bjorn Lomborg

Of course, the world is full of problems.
But on the other hand it's important to get the sense...
are we generally moving in the right direction or the wrong direction?
- Bjorn Lomborg

It seems incontrovertible to me that there is a global
warming effect and that it is going to be serious,
probably not in the amount of, say, six degrees warming,
but it's likely that we'll get two to three degrees
warming and that will be serious enough.
- Bjorn Lomborg

Even if I was a bad right wing guy, to the extent of
whether my arguments are right or wrong,
they're right or wrong independently if I'm right or left.
- Bjorn Lomborg

Try a new perspective on diversity.
Across the country and around the world,
we are all one.
