Climate Skeptic Bjorn Lomborg Excoriates Scientific Community's Hysteria

Lomborg says that, unlike the media reaction to it, the report itself is “actually serious and sensible.” But the inevitable conclusion — that an increase in heat is necessarily bad — is challenged by Lomborg.

But it also highlights how much one-sided thinking takes place in the climate conversation. Since the heat dome in June, there has been a lot of writing about more heat deaths. And the IPCC confirms that climate change indeed has increased heatwaves. However, the report equally firmly, if virtually unacknowledged, tells us that global warming means “the frequency and intensity of cold extremes have decreased.”
This matters because globally, many more people die from cold than from heat. A new study in the highly respected journal Lancet shows that about half a million people die from heat per year, but 4.5 million people die from cold.

So, yes, global warming has cost an extra 116,000 heat deaths each year, but the flip side is that with fewer cold waves, there have been 283,000 fewer deaths from cold.

“You don’t hear this, but so far climate change saves 166,000 lives each year,” writes Lomborg.

But won’t global warming turn the world into a desert and starve us all?

Suspicious Observers on takes a little while to figure out his scientific verbiage but, is far more intelligent than the dribble out of the IPCC or the MSM.
