Lomborg is at it again, taking to the pages of The Guardian in an attempt to downplay the seriousness of sea level rise and denigrate the upcoming Climate Change Congress. Stefan Rahmstorf completely demolishes Lomborg, and his response is well worth reading in full.
I don’t have much to add- I discussed how dishonest Lomborg was being on SLR and the IPCC back in August of last year- but I did want to point out the chutzpah the Dane displays in accusing Rahmstorf of cherry-picking the time series to exploit 1998 (which Lomborg has been doing consistently and incorrectly for temp) when Lomborg’s entire argument about recent SLR being “low” is based upon picking the period that gives the lowest possible trend.
What Lomborg lacks in factual accuracy and integrity and he more than makes up for in shamelessness.
I wonder how much more of this Lomborg’s “reputation” can endure before he finds himself out of favor among the right wing, market fundamentalist front groups he is so cozy with.
