Climategate – Guardian Attacks BBC For Being AGW Deniers
Posted by Tory Aardvark
The most improbable headline ever, but as with all things, fact normally beats the hell out of fiction.
Our licence fees pay for climate denial: The BBC spouts rightwing bias while ignoring environmental science.
Writing in the Guardian Sunny Hundal a left wing blogger makes this accusation at the BBC.
Hundal is correct on one point, the BBC’s complete denial of Climate Science as it preached ManBearPig so often, that eventually people got wise and complained.
After watching last night’s Newsnight, I can only come to one conclusion: the BBC has become this country’s most pernicious climate-change-denying media outlet in the UK.
There is simple reasoning behind this grand statement. While the assorted commentators who regularly spout ill-informed propaganda across the media are usually taken with a pinch of salt, the BBC is broadly trusted as an impartial and trustworthy reporter of news. It sets the agenda. Which makes the rubbish it has been producing lately on climate change even more dangerous.
The BBC has woken up to the fact that fallout from Climategate, Glaciergate, Amazongate and a thousand other gates still to be uncovered could do it damage, and more importantly put the six figure salaries and expense accounts of the current management team at risk. In a cynical move along with other MSM outlets that previously followed the Church of Climatology, the BBC is losing viewers, listeners and readers. The MSM outlets are not sure what to do with Climategate but feel they should play catch up.
The blind obedience to ManBearPig made the BBC dangerous as it spread a political agenda hidden by a lie, Anthropogenic Global Warming.
But presenter Kirsty Wark’s agenda was to try and rubbish the IPCC’s entire report — the biggest piece of scientific work undertaken on the topic. The IPCC contains hundreds if not thousands of graphs and claims — and yet one or two slips were used as an excuse to rubbish the whole thing.
At one point, she said “Are you surprised the public are really worried about this?” — let’s be clear, public opinion on global warming has stayed the same (and accepting of AGW) even after the UEA scandal.
Hundal must get his polls peer reviewed by Michael Mann and Phil Jones as the last poll showed 68% of UK voters did not believe.
There have been other prominent incidents. In one, a BBC article actually claimed global warming had ceased, but contained several inaccuracies. Then there was the cancellation of Planet Relief several years ago.
Hundal is typical of the more militant and stupid of the AGW rear guard, if they follow the normal pattern of left wingers in defeat expect things to get a whole lot nastier as the scam finally implodes.
