Bjorn Lomborg is a very interesting man. He says he believes that man-made global warming is real, but he does not believe the current policies of switching to wind etc. will work. He thinks we should tackle other more urgent issues and wait until a much cheaper solution is found, such as a cheap way to remove CO2 or a cheap way to power the world. I think he is partly right, in that the current policies won’t work, but I don’t think there is likely to be a cheap solution in the near future, but it is not impossible. 

The problem is that we in the West have become brainwashed into believing there is a "climate emergency" and so the alarmists are not willing to wait until something turns up. The present hugely expensive policies are the only option, even though they are inadequate, so they will be pursued, until they are seen beyond doubt to be too expensive and inadequate, when people will rise up en masse and reject them. 

Here is a link to the whole conversation between Bjorn and John Anderson, a former Deputy PM of Australia. It lasts almost 75 minutes and is all worth listening to, but if you want to cut to the part about climate change, it starts about 28 minutes in.
