Is Bjorn Lomberg wrong?

By ,

On this blog, we have sung the praises of Bjorn Lomberg and his skepticism of doomsday global warming scenarios. There is no denying he has an ideological bend to his statements, but that does not mean he is wrong. Like anyone trying to make a point, he selectively chooses data and case studies. However, does his data choices venture beyond selection and into manipulation? Does he compare apples to oranges?

The criticism below claims he does, and while I do not agree with everything stated by Lomborg or the critic below, both are certainly worth reading.
