Bjørn Lomborg was named as “One of the 100 Top Global Thinkers” by Foreign Policy, both in 2010 and in 2011, as a Thought Leader by the 2011 Bloomberg New Energy and Finance Summit, and as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.

He is an adjunct professor at the Copenhagen Business School, and author of The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It (Knopf).

His book, Cool It challenges our understanding of the environment and global warming and suggests that statements about the strong, ominous, and immediate consequences of global warming are often wildly exaggerated. Lomborg believes we need a stronger focus on smart solutions and thinks we must put global warming in perspective.

In May 2004, Lomborg cofounded the Copenhagen Consensus, bringing together some of the world’s top economists in a forum to discuss challenges facing the world.

In 2006, he became the director of the Copenhagen Consensus Centre, and a forum for the centre held that same year brought together United Nations Ambassadors who, together, represented about half of the world’s population.

Lomborg challenges widely held beliefs and addresses the most serious challenges facing the world today. He systematically examines today’s most important global crisis issues and offers sustainable solutions. Lomborg presented his views before the United States Congress in the joint hearing Perspective on Climate Change, of the House committees on Energy and Commerce and on Science and Technology. He testified second, after Al Gore.
