Over and over for over 3,000 years, we have abandoned windmills. We will this time too. Save the people. Save the birds and bats. Stop building windmills and clean up the mess.



When it comes to assessing the costs, risks and benefits of environmental policy Bjørn Lomborg has always tried to provide balanced, detailed analysis supported by facts and evidence.

Bjørn Lomborg has become one of the most high profile critics of insanely expensive and utterly pointless renewable energy policies across the globe (see our posts here and here).
