"Slutreplik from Stefan fölster's environmental policy"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"SLUTREPLIK. In an op-ed I argued that too many greens, the ranks of the new klimatförnekarna. They often refer to the science of global warming, but reject the science on how well climate action is working. "
"Why do they make themselves accomplices to the powerful punches in the air while the world's emissions of greenhouse gases continue to increase unchecked. "
"In a replica claiming MP's climate policy of sweden, Lorentz Tovatt that my claims are misleading, but, in fact, the criticism. "
"Tovatts contradictory message is that the MP on the one hand, the view that climate change is the dominant challenge, but on the other hand, operate a variety of proposals that increase emissions of greenhouse gas emissions or draws large resources from effective climate action on the grounds that they have other purposes. "
"An example is that the MP certainly has finally agreed to wager a small sum on research on the technology for carbon sequestration that the united nations intergovernmental panel on climate change says is essential. Good, but you should have pushed the already many years ago. "
"at the same time, the MP bet unimaginable 230 billion on high-speed trains during the decades of construction will increase emissions of greenhouse gas emissions, and only towards the end of this century may achieve a positive klimatnetto. "
"the Priority of the high-speed train has to call support in the forskningssammanställningar, either for the climate or any other purpose."
"So it is, on point after point. MP has pushed forward the ban on GMO-crops, even those that cut greenhouse gas emissions without threatening biodiversity. MP would like to have environmental zones in a formation that degrades the climate, and trying to silence forskningssammanställningar during the democratic questionable forms. "
"the Pattern that recurs is a vetenskapsförakt that sets the MP in contrast to the research on klimatåtgärders efficiency. The new klimatförnekarna have a homework to do."
"Johan Rockström react in your own reply most in that I labelled him as an ”environmental movement and related scientists”, but then delivers a line of reasoning that gives reason for the epithet. "
"Rockström has contributed to various articles on the future of food, where he avoids telling the reader that a lot of organic food, as produced in the day, are likely to lead to increased emissions of greenhouse gases. "
"instead of a line of reasoning that a hypothetical future food production can become more sustainable and more productive at the same time. It is a selective communication, which will surely keep ekoindustrin in a good mood."
"Worse, however, is that Rockstrom explicitly want to ignore the now quite extensive research which demonstrates that many of the measures that the environmental movement was just moving the emissions from one place to the other. "
"so Far, all have the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in countries such as Sweden, only achieved that the oil in place is burned elsewhere, mostly in countries that are themselves pumping up fossil fuels. Rockström speculate that this would be offset by the elusive dynamic effects or behavioural changes. "
"to the extent that they are, they have so far occurred locally, but were frustrated by the global demand-side effects."
"With all due respect, Johan Rockström, these questions will give you not only a selective picture of the state of the art in a way that the new klimatförnekarna in the environmental movement often does. Worse is that you are blatantly against the precautionary principle. If the research you want to close your eyes to the right, then you have contributed to an impotent climate policy that exposes the world of big risks. "
