The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World

The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World - Bjørn Lomborg This book is infuriatingly inaccurate. Lomborg (a statistician not a scientist!) takes on many of today's environmental issues and dismisses them almost out of hand with a judicious misapplication of shady statistics and a pervasive tone of condescension and arrogance.

The logic and conclusions in the book are fatally flawed and the references are selectively chosen to support his outrageously naive claims that everything's fine with the world.

If the realities of today's environmental crises paralyze you and you need to stick your head in the sand this book will go a long ways toward alleviating your worries and make you feel safe again. If, on the other hand, you are an intelligent reader, concerned with the state of the environment, this book will make you see red.
