The problem with Bjorn Lomborg's approach and the whole Cool It ethos is that it only adds fuel to the ridiculous argument that, in fact, global warming is not a problem.

Bjorn Lomborg, the author of several books, fancies himself a "skeptical environmentalist" and that sounds about right to me. His film Cool It is witty, fast-paced and above all else full of common sense.
