Summary When it comes to global warming, Bjorn Lomborg is a skeptical ecologist, a one-time Greenpeace member who is now at odds with the organization. Why? Though Greenpeace is trusted by 70 to 80 percent of people to be more accurate than government scientists and agencies, and even university researchers, Lomborg charges that it receives all its information from the media. Over a dozen scientists and researchers are featured in this provocative program that uses hard evidence to counter the alleged sensationalism in the media's coverage of global warming. The scientists do not deny that the planet is getting warmer, but argue that the money and time invested by those who subscribe to the hype-billions of dollars to implement the Kyoto Protocol for a temperature reduction of 0.15 degrees by the year 2100-can be better spent tackling more concrete and rapidly spreading environmental issues.
