The BBC Has Disgraced Itself.

And it’s not alone!

Like our AUS ABC the BBC has taken a very strong editorial position on “Climate” and, like News Limited, has now left itself exposed to political attacks.

The aussie ABC is actually specifically prevented from adopting an editorial position in its Act and Charter.

The public have been let down very badly by the Mainstream Media. Woodwood and Bernstein and the Washington Post, brought us Watergate, but have failed miserably to balance the case for and against “Climate”. The “Beeb” have come very close to the News limited corruption.

The BBC’s hidden ‘warmist’ agenda is rapidly unravelling
Since 2006, the BBC has relentlessly promoted the global warming orthodoxy as a pressure group in its own right.

” …Envirotrade, a Mauritius-based firm cashing in on the global warming scare by selling “carbon offsets”, which it turned out had given the BBC money to make the programme. Just as this scandal broke, I was also completing a report, to be published next month by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, on the BBC’s coverage of climate change. It ranges from the puffing of scare stories dreamed up by “climate activists”, to BBC reporting on wind farms, often no more than shameless propaganda for the wind industry. Part of the story told in my report is the unhealthily close relationship that developed between the BBC and organisations professionally involved in the “warmist” cause…. “

” …Montford cites another odd BBC programme, Earth Reporters: Sea Change, funded by Unesco, which was like an adulatory commercial for the scientists who push alarm about the impact of global warming on the oceans, via the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The scientific adviser for the programme was the same Dr Smith who organised that 2006 seminar, and whose website lists a string of other BBC programmes he has worked on. The irony is, however, that just as the BBC adopted its new hard line on climate change, in the real world the story was beginning to shift…. “

” …Last week, even Richard Black, another BBC proselytiser for man-made warming, was gloomily having to reveal the conclusion of a new IPCC report: that, over the next few decades, “climate change signals are expected to be relatively small compared to natural climate variabilty”. In plain English, that means the great scare story is over. What a shame. But at what a price…. “

The second half of this story is an example of the EU “Big Brother” Climate bureaucracy gone wild.
