shot to fame in 2001 with his first book, The Skeptical Environmentalist, a broad critique of the environmental movement that infuriated many ecologists and greens. The notoriety transformed the little-known Danish statistician into a globe-trotting public intellectual.
Since then, he has courted controversy in the climate debate and embraced his role as a provocateur. In my piece, I write:
it’s worth asking at this stage in his career if Lomborg is a voice of reason, a professional pot stirrer, or a trollish ankle-biter. The answer probably depends on where you sit in these debates.
What do you think? If you read the profile, tell me what you believe my answer would be.
