Computing teacher Tim Lambert sums up The Skeptical Environmentalist:
Have you noticed that Lomborg wrote a book where he said that while there had been been some environmental problems in the past, we had solved them all and nothing further needed to be done.
This is another of Lambert's lies; here's what Lomborg actually wrote under the heading Things are better – but not necessarily good:
Mankind’s lot has actually improved in terms of practically every measurable indicator.

But note carefully what I am saying here: that by far the majority of indicators show that mankind’s lot has vastly improved. This does not, however, mean that everything is good enough. The first statement refers to what the world looks like whereas the second refers to what it ought to look like.
"Scientist" Lambert is not to be trusted, ever.

Is Lomborg the guy with the long hair?
