Climate sceptic U-turns and calls for Carbon Emissions Tax

Well-known economist climate critic Bjørn Lomborg – the self styled “sceptical environmentalist”- is calling for massive investment into climate change measures.

To fund them he is suggesting a tax on carbon emissions in his latest book  Smart Solutions to Climate Change: Comparing Costs and Benefits

Says Bjørn, quoted in the Guardian,

“The point I’ve always been making is it’s not the end of the world,” he told the Guardian. “That’s why we should be measuring up to what everybody else says, which is we should be spending our money well.”

This concurs with the Foundation’s views on both Carbon Fees and Investment.
