Reader Q&A: Ask Bjørn Lomborg about his views on climate change

Update: We are publishing the answers over here.

Bjørn Lomborg, the author of ‘The Skeptical Environmentalist’, now believes reaching an agreement at Copenhagen is vital.

His organisation, Copenhagen Consensus, is also publishing a series of reports on the cheapest ways to tackle climate change, the first one suggesting that some forms of geo-engineering, such as making clouds whiter and thus more reflective of sunlight, could cost less than 5 per cent of the bill for cutting carbon emissions. He will answer readers’ questions on Wednesday, August 12 at 2pm BST (9am EST).

You can post a question in the comments field below, or email ask@ft.com (your email address will not be published).

We’re taking questions in advance, so post any time until it begins.
