Not to Be Missed: Mashey Bashing Bjorn

Frequent DeSmogBlog comment contributor John R. Mashey does a lovely job deconstructing Bjorn Lomborg‘s fictional liberalism in a post here at The Way Things Break.

Lomborg’s con is to argue that climate change, while a valid concern, is a much lower priority than dealing with starvation and disease in the developing world. Mashey points out, however, that buddy Bjorn is too busy enriching himself on the denier think tank speaker circuit to actually spend any time advocating for an increase in global aid.

Mashey’s more polite than I would have been, but he also shreds Lomborg and his entire argument to better effect.
