The Honor of Being Mugged by Climate Censors - WSJ

This is interesting.
Lomborg does believe that we must take steps to mitigate global warming: for example, by cutting fossil-fuel subsidies, by dramatically increasing spending on green-energy R&D, and by establishing a "well crafted carbon tax".
So that's all good then.
But because he says we must look at the cost of options in dealing with what's already inevitable as a result of a warming world, he gets excoriated by the more fanatical of the warmists, and shut out of a university research centre.
We need rather more Lomborgs: knowledgeable and hard-headed environmentalists.
