Pseudo-intellectual global problem profiteers, a.k.a. “Disaster Capitalists”, contribute to the destruction of the planet while masquerading as “socially conscious allies”…
“Global problem profiteer”, Bjørn Lomborg, joins The Heartland Institute of Chicago exposed in Yale article, “Strange Bedfellows”, for simultaneously denying and supporting climate science, and advocating geoengineering as a solution to a problem, (anthropogenic climate change), that they deny is happening in the first place.
Regardless of the “stance” you may have taken on the so called “debate”, you’ve got to wonder, what gives? First and foremost, see it for the giant waving red flag that it is and realize the entire “debate” is a carefully concocted spin to suppress awareness in the mainstream in order for global problem profiteers to continue peddling dirty energy while pretending to “care”.

The perpetual spin of the revolving door is dizzying. It’s as though we are living in a giant masquerade ball where changing of masks is as frequent an occurrence as going to the bathroom, and smells exactly the same.
Excerpt from Yale’s Strange Bedfellows? Climate Change Denial and Support:
‘The Lomborg Maneuver’
The Heartland Institute is hardly alone in considering geoengineering as a solution to a problem it basically doesn’t see as a problem in the first place. Bjørn Lomborg and ‘Lomborg Maneuver’ – opposition to ‘real-world’ actions, but support for more radical approaches?
In recent years, Bjørn Lomborg has often downplayed the threats from climate change while pushing geoengineering as a short-term solution. So too have Newt Gingrich, the former EPA staff economist Alan Carlin, and the American Enterprise Institute, which earlier this year posted a seminar calling solar radiation management “an evolving climate policy option” on its website, a site chock-full of climate contrarianism.”
One environmental group has taken to calling this straddle the “Lomborg maneuver” – “switching from opposing real-world action on climate change to supporting the most extreme possible action on climate change.” —
“While Bjorn Lomborg has never literally denied that the climate is changing, his economic theories have always served those who do. A Danish economist, Lomborg has won international notoriety. The Wall Street Journal loves his editorials” – Bjorn Lomborg: The Sustainability Critic: Greentech Media

Lomborg’s spin: “Bjørn Lomborg, an adjunct professor at the Copenhagen Business School, founded and directs the Copenhagen Consensus Center, which seeks to study environmental problems and solutions using the best available analytical methods. He is the author of The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It, and is the editor of How Much have Global Problems Cost the World?”
Bjørn, why don’t you tell us how much global problem profiteers get PAID these days and we’ll tell you how much that “COSTS us”.
