After Scientific American published an 11-page critique of my book The Skeptical Environmentalist in January, I've now been allowed a one-page reply. Naturally, this leaves little space to comment on particulars, and I refer to my 32-page article-for-article, point-for-point reply at www.lomborg.org and on the Scientific American Web site (www.sciam.com).
I believe many readers will have shared my surprise at the choice of four reviewers so closely identified with environmental advocacy. The Economist summarized their pieces as "strong on contempt and sneering, but weak on substance."
This article was originally published with the title The Skeptical Environmentalist Replies.
