Does ‘Cool It’ Also Apply to Lomborg?
Bjørn Lomborg’s new film, Cool It, arrives in due time to receive attention before COP 16 in Cancun. It is neither too late nor too early, and chances are that it will still be on people’s tongues as the 16th climate summit kicks off in late November. But the question is if that is a good thing?
Following the complete collapse of COP 15 in Copenhagen in December, many doubt that the summit in Mexico will do better. This include United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon. But does this mean, as Lomborg says in his film (trailer below) and elsewhere, that we should stop talking about emissions and start talking about investments?
I would love to hear opinions about this. I am confused. Clearly we have not managed to curb emissions yet, but is it time to give up and focus exclusively on adaption and green tech? Or is there a middle way?
Check out the trailer below.
