More scientific support for Bjørn Lomborg
Further support for Danish environmental optimist and author of "The sceptical environmentalist" Bjørn Lomborg has come from a group of scientists formed last year after a Danish ethics panel accused Mr Lomborg of "scientific dishonesty". Last month, Denmark's science ministry spectacularly cleared him of the charge (EED 18/12/03). Drawing together its work, the group concludes that few accusations made against Mr Lomborg hold while his environmentalist critics are themselves "severely guilty" of misquotation and twisting of arguments.
