"Far more convincing than An Inconvenient Truth."
--The Financial Post "Brimming with useful facts and common sense. . . . [Lomborg's] analysis is smart and refreshing, and it may bridge at least one divide in our too divided culture."
--The Wall Street Journal "Enlightening, eye-opening, brain-nourishing stuff!"
--Los Angeles Times "A reasoned addition to the debate about what to do about climate change. . . . Sure to provoke much controversy."
--Esquire "Bjorn Lomborg is the best-informed and most humane advocate for environmental change in the world today. . . . [He] and Cool It are our best guides to our shared environmental future."
--Michael Crichton "[A] calm, civil, even-handed analysis. [Cool It] is suffused with concern for socially beneficial priorities and for practical steps to do good. . . . It provides some badly needed balance."
