Germany is spending billions of dollars to combat climate change, but the money is largely wasted, one global-warming expert said. The county's efforts will turn back the hands of time by only 37 hours, he said.
Bjorn Lomborg is avidly courting publicity for his new film, "Cool It." He correctly observes that public discussion about global warming is largely between two entrenched camps of opinion. He's also right about our needing a "Plan B" climate policy that defuses the current rancorous and unproductive debate about "the man-made climate problem."
"Global warming is real," he said to Mr. Stossel, "and we need to fix [it].
"The Germans are spending about $110 billion on subsidies for these solar panels," said Bjorn Lomborg, a Danish author and environmental analyst, on a broadcast interview with John Stossel. "The net effect of all those investments will be to postpone global warming by 37 hours by the end of the century."
