Bjorn Lomborg Again

Denmark's Environmentalist Witch Hunt

In March I posted an item about Bjorn Lomborg, the Danish statistician who was pilloried after going public with the politically incorrect truth that most of the environmentalist litany is myth, and things in general are getting better, not worse. It seems that George Orwell's prescience of "Recdep," the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth, where news and history are rewritten to suit policy, is well attested to in Europe. For the story of the amateurish attempt to discredit Lomborg, making no attempt at objectivity and answering scientific references with slanted magazine articles, see James K. Glassman's Denmark's Ministry of Truth at TCS Europe. Lomborg's book The Skeptical Environmentalist was what started it all off.

Americans should maybe reflect on the value of the Freedom of Speech that they have defended so ably in the past
