Bjorn Lomborg says he is not a climate-change denier, he is a realist who knows better ways of improving the world than a head-on assault on global warming.

It’s not easy to take a public stand against the internationally agreed upon goal of limiting the increase in average temperatures to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels – a rise that some scientists describe as a tipping point that would be followed by the collapse of ice sheets, rising sea levels and an onslaught of dramatic weather events.

But Dr. Lomborg has, for years, been arguing that the target is simply too difficult and too expensive to achieve and the world’s development dollars would be put to better
