Bjorn Lomborg on Combating Climate Change Instead, Mr Lomborg argues, there are cheaper ways of halting temperature rises.

These include tackling sources of climate change other than carbon dioxide, such as methane and soot; investing in new tech nologies; adapting to the effects of climate change; planting more forests; and weighing up whether emissions cuts are cheaper to do now or later.

True, but these "cheaper ways" don't generate nearly as much revenue for governments, nor do they require justify a government takeover of much of the economy. Hence, they are doomed to failure.
