“The sky is falling!” says Chicken Little in the classic children’s folk story, a cautionary tale about the dangers of making false, alarmist claims.
Like Chicken Little, climate change activists insist, based on cherry-picked data, that we are headed for a climate catastrophe.
But, as Bjorn Lomborg, director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center explains in this week’s video, their conclusions are every bit as misguided as their methodology. The vast majority of scientific data indicate that the climate is not changing much, if at all. Worse, says Lomborg, alarmist claims give rise to climate policies that may actually harm the world’s most vulnerable people. Watch the video and find out why the sky is not, in fact, falling, and why a more balanced conversation on climate change is sorely needed.
