|Quotes about Lomborg
Rajendra K. Pachauri, head of IPCC:
"What is the difference between Lomborg's view of humanity and Hitler's? You cannot treat people like cattle. You must respect the diversity of cultures on earth. Lomborg thinks of people like numbers. He thinks it would be cheaper just to evacuate people from the Maldives, rather than trying to prevent world sea levels from rising so that island groups like the Maldives or Tuvalu just disappear into the sea. But where's the respect for people in that? People have a right to live and die in the place where their forefathers have lived and died. If you were to accept Lomborg's way of thinking, then maybe what Hitler did was the right thing." Rajendra K. Pachauri, head of IPCC.
Interview in the Danish Newspaper Jyllandsposten, April 21st 2004.
Gary Yohe, professor of economics, lead author of several IPCC report chapters, contributor to Copenhagen Consensus 2008:
" . . as one of the authors of the Copenhagen Consensus Project's principal climate paper, I can say with certainty that Lomborg is misrepresenting our findings thanks to a highly selective memory."
