How should governments prioritize responses to the most serious problems facing the world today, such as climate change, communicable diseases, armed conflicts, malnutrition, and hunger? Bjørn Lomborg, author of the controversial bestseller The Skeptical Environmentalist, answers that question in his new book Global Crises, Global Solutions. The book is a product of “The Copenhagen Consensus,” an effort sponsored by Denmark’s National Environmental Assessment Institute. Its purpose was to bring together some of the most respected scholars in the world to map out a path toward positive global change. Professor Lomborg, who served as director of the project, will report what “the best and the brightest” concluded.
