Denmark’s new left-wing coalition government has reached a consensus about Bjorn Lomborg’s Copenhagen Consensus Center.
The economist and climate change sceptic Bjørn Lomborg will lose the nine million kroner [about $1.6 million] he receives to run the Copenhagen Consensus Center under the new government.
“We will prioritise differently than the previous government has done,” Ida Auken from the Socialist People’s Party said, according to state broadcaster DR.
“We won’t be doing favours for our friends and running our fiscal policy according to ideological causes. We won’t be making special allowances for researchers,” she continued. “They will have to find their funding elsewhere.”

Lomborg tried to walk in the middle of the road — i.e., manmade global warming is real but it’s a low priority (early Lomborg) or we should paint roads white (late Lomborg) — but got run over by a driver in the left lane.
