From October 31 to November 12, representatives and diplomats from some 200 countries, as well as business executives, activists, researchers, industry leaders, and celebrities, will convene in Glasgow, Scotland, for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). If history is any indication, negotiations will be driven by apocalyptic climate rhetoric and unrealistic climate goals. Countries will over promise and under deliver.

Bjorn Lomborg joined Marc and Dany to discuss climate alarmism, effective ways to address climate change, the need for innovation and adaptation, and the upcoming climate negotiations.

Mr. Lomborg is president of the Copenhagen Consensus and a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution. For this work, Lomborg was named one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. He is the author of the best-selling "False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet," "The Skeptical Environmentalist," and "Cool It."
