Lomborg-Errors.dk: Prepare now to debunk upcoming climate denial movie
The heavily advertised (even during the Daily Show) climate denial movie “Cool It” is scheduled to be released this Friday.
To prepare for this, take a spin thought the sight below which catalogs all of the errors in data, logic, and conclusion that the movies creator Bjorn Lomborg has used in the past. The film is based upon his book of the same name, and also will very likely include information from his previous book “The Skeptical Environmentalist”.
Bjørn Lomborg is a well-known personality in the environmental debate. He is the author of several books which, due to their copious lists of notes and references, appear very technical and scientific and therefore trustworthy. Unfortunately, those reading his books or listening to his lectures or seeing his film are rarely aware that the facts and statements presented by Lomborg are often not reliable.
When experts in the fields covered by Lomborg check his texts, they most often find that the evidence has been distorted. Danish biologist Kåre Fog has systematically over many years checked Lomborg´s texts against his sources and references and against other scientific literature. His conclusion is that Lomborg´s texts are systematically manipulated to fit a certain agenda.
The web site Lomborg-errors has been established to document this claim. It gathers and publishes errors found in Bjørn Lomborg´s books, especially “The Skeptical Environmentalist” (2001) and Cool it! (2007).
In addition, it gives information on cases and activities related to Bjørn Lomborg, attempts to describe his methods, and points out cases where the claims about Lomborg´s dishonesty seem to hold true.
