Climate change is real and its impacts are mostly negative, but Bjorn Lomborg of the Copenhagen Consensus Center says that common portrayals of devastation are unfounded. In this lecture, Professor Lomborg outlines how to establish a rational climate policy in the context of many other, competing global issues.

The Copenhagen Consensus Center is a think-tank that researches the smartest ways to do good. For this work, Lomborg was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world. His numerous books include False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet, The Skeptical Environmentalist, and Prioritizing Development: A Cost Benefit Analysis of the UN's SDGs.
