    Succinct authoritative explanation. Will the BBC broadcast it?

      Won’t even get onto the “Fact Check” pages

      Not a chance, the BBC will only publish the ramblings of the idiot Bett, not someone who knows what they’re talking about.

    It is good to see confirmation of the climate change scam, but what use is it when the MSM and governments refuse to take notice? When I state the same views of Lomborg at social gatherings (pub, dinner parties etc) very few agree and the majority say nothing and look sheepish.

      The public have been lied to and brainwashed on climate change just as they have on Covid. So far the only impact of the climate change scan on the people has been rising energy bills, and they might not even make that connection.

      In contrast, the impact of the Covid scam on the people has been severely negative on many levels, especially adverse health effects. If/when the people waken up as to how they have been lied to and abused on Covid, they will hopefully make the connection back to all that has been said on climate change.

        Unfortunately, I believe that connection will never be made. Multiplying the lack of scientific understanding among the general population by the belief in the ‘authorities’ = a state of blissful ignorance

        The average mong has no idea. Only among the 1 in 50 with a Physics A level is there any dissent.

    What is outrageous is that right at the start the host has to say they both are not skeptical. Science is all about being skeptical and seeing if there is really evidence which will hold up to scrutiny which there is not when it comes to fossil fuel CO2 caused climate change.

      I agree. Don’t know much about Lomborg but he is showing clear signs of being part of controlled opposition. From what I have read Global Warming is not the problem that he is intimating at all or or anything close. So what on earth is he trying to do? Answer, in my opinion, he is herding people by nudging their perceptions. Science has become a religion and is collapsing in so many ways.

    Another fake climate story.

    If there is an issue, aside from a commercial decision to retire less popular varieties, it’s simply that many of these roses could only ever be grown successfully with a regime of aphid and fungus control. Whilst commercial growers still have access to products that work, as soon as they go in a private garden, there are no longer any truly effective products left that haven’t been banned, and anyway, understandably, people don’t want to be constantly spraying chemicals around these days.

    Lomborg is excellent except (big, big except!) he always says that “global warming is a real problem”.

    • November 15, 2022 10:17 pm

      Spot on. If global warming and climate change exist at all, they are no more than marginal in their effect and should be costed as such (which I feel Lomborg does not). Society’s structures – food production, construction, weather protection etc etc – have adjusted to the weather patterns that influence them on the timescale of replacement of the relevant capital stock. Increased aspirations and expectations are much weightier influences than shifts in the weather anyway, even than those induced by putative climate change.

    The irony of switching from one kind of finite resource for our energy, fossil fuels, to another kind, earth metals is lost on most people. The fact that the massive expansion of mining necessary to generate and store all this renewable energy, will itself cause huge CO2 emissions is never mentioned.

    Has anyone noticed the return of sea ice on the Arctic Ocean, (35% more than the 2014 minimum); or the decrease in forecasted sea level rise for Florida, from 1.3 feet by 2030 to 7.5 inches; or very low sunspot numbers that existed during the little ice age? Or even more important, the cooling down of the 16 hot spots which caused the temperature rise after 1980?
    Or the rapid rise in energy and food prices and inflation wherever there is “low cost wind and solar?”
    There is no law against stupidity.
    Serious effort will be required to save the planet from “settled science”.
    I suggest reading my book – POLAR BEARS – 2022; (25000, healthy & fat . .) vs their predicted annihilation.

    For those who would like Bjorn’s headline numbers over the Lancet fake news article I jotted them down as they were pretty useful:

    Lancet claims 68% increase in heat related deaths, these are mostly elderly
    Does not allow for 60% increase in elderly population due to increase life expectancy
    Result is that heat related deaths have only increased about 5%
    Conversely cold related deaths have reduced by 26%

    The real kicker is the actual numbers (one reason why people lie with percentages):

    Increase in heat-related deaths = +17,000
    Decrease in cold-related deaths = -524,000

    So net benefit of warming is 507,000 fewer deaths!
