in deep existential crisis..

A Journal by Sara

Surprise…. It’s actually greener !

One might have got used to the shrilling voices of ‘Make World Green’ rendered by environmentalists in the recent past. We were told of the ruining nature and how we would face reactions to the hole we drilled on the nature’s cover, with due credit to the idle fiction writers who in fact overhyped the horror story.

But, Bjorn Lomborg has a different insight into the environmental problems and its impact on humanity in the near future.

—————————————————————————————————————————–

The book’s longest, most detailed chapter is on global warming and the Kyoto Treaty. Lomborg agrees that a warming trend is real but says that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change exaggerates the possible threats and present-day proportions of global warming, while neglecting the benefits of more carbon dioxide in the air and warmer nighttime temperatures. These changes would improve agricultural output in the U.S. and China, and make for vast increases in crop production for Canada and Russia. In any event, Lomborg is promoter of solar energy, which he believes will take over from oil as our major energy source in the next 50 years.

Of course, not denying that the natural cycle is degenerated, and its worsening impact on global warming, but much has been written and spread that we are in lose-lose situation.
