In Cool It, Bjoern Lomborg says current climate change initiatives are based on fear and that new approaches are needed.
He says he admires Gore’s documentary since “his movie made us all aware of climate change”. However, “it did so by creating panic, and we need to move on from that”.
I agree. The carrot works better than the stick. We should emphasize how renewable energy makes us less dependent on foreign sources for oil, more self-sufficient, with energy produced locally. And not by screaming we’re all doomed because the ice caps are melting.
