Yesterday I linked to an Economist article by Bjorn Lomborg in which he debunks (or, I should say, attempts to debunk) many commonly held beliefs among environmentalists. In it he challenged the ideas that the world faces problems of overpopulation, pollution, global warming, and mass extinction. That’s actually an oversimplification of his argument, but you can read it as well as I can. Anyway, some readers pointed out that Lomborg has plenty of critics, who probably ought to be read as well. Here’s a list of reader submitted links:

  • Union of Concerned Scientiests examination of Lomborg’s book, The Skeptical Environmentalist
  • World Resources Institute media kit for journalists about The Skeptical Environmentalist
  • A critique of Lomborg’s work by his colleagues at Aarhus University
