Skeptical Environmentalist-Pragmatic Approach

Bjorn Lomborg is director of the Copenhagen Consensus, a think tank, and author of “Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist’s Guide to Global Warming” (Knopf, 2007).

I think Bjorn definitely fits in the category of pragmatic environmentalist. His institute looks for the best bang-for-the-buck for aid, the environment etc. Very interesting stuff.

I think we are going to increasingly see a more pragmatic approach adopted in the future. We shouldn’t be surprised at all that a lot of individuals and corporations are manipulating the situation for maximum profit but it is still regretable.
