Goodall´s analysis of footnotes
This page deals with the
book by Bjørn Lomborg:
"Cool it!- The Skeptical
Environmentalist´s Guide to Global Warming".
The book has appeared in two versions, an American (A) and a British (B).
The American version was published by Alfred A. Knopf about 1st. Sept. 2007. It has 253 pp.
The British version was published by Cyan Communications about 26th Sept. 2007. It has 353 pp.
The two versions differ in several respects. The American version is written relatively much as a popular book, with no graphs. The British book appears more `technical´, with many graphs and with the same note system as in "The Skeptical Environmentalist". In some chapters, the text differs widely from the American version.
Lomborg-errors´ criticism is more
precise in the pages referring to the British version.

Chris Goodall began to make a check of the
endnotes in a randomly selected part of the book. One of the surprises
to him was that Lomborg often
plagiarizes other texts.
