A friend recently asked my position on climate change policy. This lecture by Bjorn Lomborg pretty much nails it.



Hopefully I will get to write a bit more on this later in the week; until then enjoy Mr. Lomborg's presentation.

Started on shaky ground but finished strong. I don't think many people are aware of the small amount of positive change that can be accomplished just with reduction. But most people also lump in research with reduction. He does make a strong case for simply foregoing things like kyoto in favor of simply investing that money in research, but, on the other hand, kyoto does provide very good incentives for the marketplace to find ways to reduce carbon emissions cheaply.
