Ill Literacy Podcast- Books with Benson: False Alarm with Author Bjorn Lomborg

In Episode IV of the Ill Literacy podcast, Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Dr. Bjørn Lomborg to discuss his book, False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet. They discuss how, contrary to what alarmists in media and academe will tell you, climate change really isn’t an “existential” threat to the planet, and they delve into the specifics. They chat about polar bears, hurricanes, droughts, flooding, wildfires, and how human innovation and adaption is already helping to mitigate climate damage. They also talk about the ineffectiveness of the Paris Agreement and how the Green New Deal is terrible policy.
