ABSTRACT
'The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World,' by Bjorn Lomborg, covers an extraordinary range of material, including the global availability of food, energy, and water; resource exhaustion; forest depletion; biodiversity; and global warming. The author looks at environmental warnings and finds that some were simply fabricated. He also finds discrepancies between the popular accounts and the scientific findings that allegedly provide their bases.
