Major Cuts in Carbon Emissions Are Not Worth The Cost

That’s the motion debated (Oxford-style) January 2009 on National Public Radio’s Intelligence Squared. The program runs about 45 minutes and was well worth my time.

FOR THE MOTION:

Peter Huber, co-author of The Bottomless Well and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.

Bjorn Lomborg, creator of the Copenhagen Consensus

Philip Stott, biogeographer and the editor of the Journal of Biogeography for 18 years.

AGAINST THE MOTION

L. Hunter Lovins, president of Natural Capitalism Solutions

Oliver Tickell, author of Kyoto2

Adam Werbach, global chief executive officer at Saatchi & Saatchi. He is the youngest president ever elected for the Sierra Club.
