Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 6 of the 2021 updated version of Bjorn Lomborg’s 2020 book, False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet:

The political reaction to the reality of climate change has always been flawed – this, too, I have been pointing out for decades. There are, I have argued and continue to argue, smarter ways than our present-day approach to tackle global warming. But the conversation around me has changed dramatically in recent years. The rhetoric on climate change has become ever more extreme and less moored to the actual science. Over the past twenty years, climate scientists have painstakingly increased knowledge about climate change, and we have more – and more reliable – data than ever before. But at the same time, the rhetoric that comes from commentators and the media has become increasingly irrational.
