Using statistical information from internationally recognized research institutes, Lomborg systematically examines a range of major environmental issues and documents that the global environment has actually improved. Throughout the book, his sources are fully referenced, allowing discerning readers to investigate the facts used to support his argument. Lomborg criticizes the way many environmental organizations make selective and misleading use of scientific data to influence decisions about the allocation of limited resources. Written by a nonpartisan, independent thinker, The Skeptical Environmentalist is a useful corrective to the more alarmist accounts favored by green activists and the media+-+8315656705186129ocn124074897book20070.24Lomborg, BjørnCool it : the skeptical environmentalist's guide to global warmingArgues that many of the elaborate actions being considered to stop global warming are too costly and will have little impact, and suggests that society's focus should be on such immediate concerns as fighting HIV/AIDS and maintaining a fresh water supply+-+K701382585155534ocn056639829book20040.50Lomborg, BjørnGlobal crises, global solutionsExamines the ten most serious challenges facing the world, including climate change, malnutrition and hunger, and communicable diseases, and discusses policy options to address each situation+-+519993670564414ocn636911299book20100.50Lomborg, BjørnSmart solutions to climate change : comparing costs and benefits"The failure of the Copenhagen climate conference in December 2009 revealed major flaws in the way the world's policy makers have attempted to prevent dangerous levels of increases in global temperatures. The expert authors in this specially commissioned collection focus on the likely costs and benefits of a very wide range of policy options, including geoengineering; mitigation of CO₂, CH₄, and "black carbon"; expanding forest Carbon Sequestration; R&D of low-carbon energy; and encouraging green technology transfer. For each policy, the authors outline all of the costs, benefits and likely outcomes, in fully referenced, clearly presented chapters accompanied by shorter, critical alternative perspective papers."--+-+110386670563312ocn165408072book20070.59Lomborg, BjørnSolutions for the world's biggest problems : costs and benefitsThis title offers a rigorous overview of 23 of the world's biggest problems relating to the environment, governance, economics, and health and population+-+52406267054265ocn696427930visu20100.19Cool itFilm adaptationsFrom the author of The Skeptical Environmentalist comes this practical guide to solving our environmental problems and cooling the 'green' hysteria that's gripping the planet.

The conventional wisdom in development agencies - that prioritization is impossible and that everything must be done - is simply not effective. Latin American Development Priorities shows how limited resources could be used for the greatest benefit of the Latin American and Caribbean region. A panel of economists met over three days in San Jose; to review proposals to tackle the ten most important challenges, which emerged from a survey by the Inter-American Development Bank. The expert panel was asked a question which appears simple but is actually very difficult to answer: What should Latin American governments do with an additional nominal $10 billion? Hard choices are needed if Latin America's problems are to be tackled effectively. This book provides the means to make those choices as objectively as possible"--Résumé de l'éditeur+-+254112670520811ocn794037198book20120.66Lomborg, BjørnRethinkHIV : smarter ways to invest in ending HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa"Thirty years after the identification of the disease that became known as AIDS, humanitarian organizations warn that the fight against HIV/AIDS has slowed, amid a funding shortfall and donor fatigue. In this book, Bjørn Lomborg brings together research by world-class specialist authors, a foreword by UNAIDS founding director Peter Piot and perspectives from Nobel Laureates and African civil society leaders to identify the most effective ways to tackle the pandemic across sub-Saharan Africa. There remains an alarming lack of high-quality data evaluating responses to HIV. We still know too little about what works, where and how to replicate our successes. This book offers the first comprehensive attempt by teams of authors to analyze HIV/AIDS policy choices using cost-benefit analysis, across six major topics. This approach provides a provocative fresh look at the best ways to scale up the fight against this killer epidemic"--Provided by publisher1893ocn648192042file20040.56Alderman, HaroldCopenhagen consensus globale kriser - globale svarConference proceedingsHvis vi havde 50 milliarder dollar ekstra til at bruge på en bedre verden, hvor skulle vi så sætte ind først?

His close reading of Lomborg's textual claims and supporting documentation reveals a lengthy list of findings that will rock climate skeptics and their allies in the government and news media, demonstrating that the published peer-reviewed climate science, as assessed mainly by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has had it mostly right--even if somewhat conservatively right--all along. Friel's able defense of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth against Lomborg's repeated attacks is by itself worth an attentive reading. --Publisher's description+-+0376265585351ocn556883791book20100.25Friel, HowardLomborg's deception : the fraudulent case against the scientific consensus on global warming+-+9856165585141ocn748502304visu20100.19Cool itFilm adaptationsIn this film, author Bjorn Lomborg (The Skeptical Environmentalist) asks us to question the facts and the solutions.
