In the just published False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet, skeptical environmentalist Bjorn Lomborg compellingly argues climate change is not the coming of the apocalypse. Not only are public policy proposals to curb energy use ineffective, they are devastating to the world economy, particularly, the least well-off. The COVID-19 pandemic lockdown has made the cost of cutting carbon emissions abundantly clear. Yet, even these reductions will have no discernible impact on climate. Rather than depriving the world of energy, Lomborg argues, we can do more to improve global health by rethinking long term investments in immunization and education.
