Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

George Orwell, Call Your Office

On Wednesday, something called the Danish Committees on Scientific Dishonesty, a government-linked body that sounds full-blown from the pages of Orwell, ruled that Bjorn Lombrog’s book The Skeptical Environmentalist constitutes "scientific dishonesty." Lomborg, you may recall, took on the doom-and-gloom environmentalists in his book, and of course has been denounced for it.

This is a total crock. The Danish report doesn’t begin to establish anything; reading it makes clear that Lomborg’s crime is being environmentally incorrect. (You can read this tripe here if you can stand it.)


The Economist, which was early to the Lomborg story back in 2001, has a scathing editorial (here) rightly calling the Danish report "shameful."

I’ll have my own blistering commentary and full analysis coming out from AEI probably on Monday. I’ll pass along the link, or watch www.aei.org.
