Drastic Cuts in Carbon Emissions Make No Economic Sense

So says Bjorn Lomborg, in an op-ed for The Washington Times (no, really!)
...trying to force cuts in carbon emissions is a solution that will cost far more than the problem it is meant to solve.

So what does he suggest instead? Well, spending $100 billion per year on green energy research and development with the goal of making green energy as cheap as fossil fuels.

This is much more in-line with this website's thinking. We want a greener future but see no point in hobbling, or even destroying, our economy in pointless and politically motivated attacks on the current (primarily fossil fuel) methods of delivering cheap energy.
