On being asked about the West's approach towards climate change, Bjorn Lomborg replied, "The West loves to listen to climate and loves to tell everyone that we all should do more about climate change. Very often we do it ourselves but when it starts costing us money, we obviously become a lot more resident. I think it just tells you the general truth that you know very well and everyone normally loves to speak big words but we obviously have to find policies that are both efficient and cheap and then that is what India can bring to this. A sort of realism on the climate conversation. The realism that allows us to have a conversation about all the other challenges."
