Yeah and it's too bad climate experts don't agree with a polysci major huh? Wonder why? Could it be he's wrong? That's what I know. I know it from hanging out with experts on the subject. The clock is ticking and we are cooking in our own stew of CO2 and particulates. That's the real push/pull.

Here's a review of Lomborg's earlier book, 'The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the True State of the World.' Dr. Dan Wenny is an ornithologist with the Illinois Nat. History Survey. His work includes extinction studies, and he uses that expertise to show why Lomborg's claims about extinction rates are wrong.

I expect those are some of the same tried-and-false methods Lomborg uses in his recent book.

Thanks Jay. I'm sure they are the same methods. They only work for his clueless audience.
