DeSmogBlog has done the first comprehensive analysis of where Bjorn Lomborg’s money comes from. You'll be shocked, shocked to learn that a guy who argues for inaction on climate change and pens pieces like “The Poor Need Cheap Fossil Fuels” is connected to the Kochtopus empire.
Lomborg twists the facts beyond recognition in his latest op-ed so he can claim that inefficient stoves that kill poor people running on fuels like coal ... are an argument for why the poor need more fossil fuels!
Lomborg argues that 1) there is some sort of trade-off between efforts to fight poverty and efforts to fight climate and 2) the best way to fight climate change is to let emissions keep rising while spending gazillions of public dollars on R&D. Both are false.
