Is Lomborg employed by Copenhagen Business School?Edit

I Lomborg still an adjunct professor at CBS? I can't find his web-page there. I was looking for it, because I was surprised that he could have an adjuncture at CBS, when his scientific production is almost non-existant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:24, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

POV-pushing about "scientific credibility" removedEdit

I have removed this edit as undue POV-pushing without any uninvolved reliable sources to back up these assertions. The same claims have been edit-warred by the same IP in 2 related newspaper articles, again without any appropriate 3rd-party source. The usage of self-published information for such critical and excessively-detailed information clearly violates WP:BLP and WP:SPS (and is undue weight to boot). Such content needs independent uninvolved sources to establish its relevance, and to describe the aspect in a dispassionate succinct manner if it merits encyclopedic inclusion to begin with. Criticism of Lomborg's views is already covered in some detail in other sections. GermanJoe (talk) 11:37, 21 July 2018 (UTC)


[1] "Lomborg and the Copenhagen Consensus Center do not seem to deny that climate change is happening or man-made, but discuss the economics of the remedies." This is bullshit. Climate change denial does not just mean "deny that climate change is happening or man-made". There are other flavors, and Lomborg has some of them. --Hob Gadling (talk) 11:59, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Well boohoo, Thanks for the link to that attack page, I'll be editing it. So what is your personal definition of climate change denialism, other than wp:i don't like it? Greglocock (talk) 01:55, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
Nothing personal about it. That page is based on reliable sources, and if you try to inject anti-science denialist POV into it, you will fail. --Hob Gadling (talk) 10:37, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
