Still bullshit. I'll let others go into more detail. But really quickly - to get the results he gets requires understating consequences of global warming, overstating costs of doing something about global warming, and ignoring co-benefits, cause about 99% of what needs to be done about global warming needs to be done for other reasons in any case. Not going to let Lomborg waste much of time, Salon had a review of the book at the time it came out was pretty devastating http://www.salon.com/2007/08/29/cool_it/ . And honestly they could have double the length of the review without running out of valid criticism.
Whats more, the science since then shows the situation to be much worse that we thought at the time. We are seeing feedbacks today that were not officially expected at the time - though you can find many climate scientists who thought even then that the slow consensus process of the IPCC was drastically underestimating the danger. And apparently they were right.
