BBC “TwentyEightGate” List Exposed

 The WORST thing about this “TwentyEightGate” is not the revelation that there was no excuse for not revealing the list, but that the BBC had a very high level meeting at which it decided to actively supress news, ridicule opponents and actively promote a political cause – Climate Change. It doesn’t even do that to Creationism. Creationists and UFOlogists and Crop Circles get a louder voice on the BBC than climate skeptics.

Why the List of Participants to the BBC CMEP Jan 2006 Seminar is important

Yesterday night this site has seen the second large journalistic scoop of my life (so far): “Full List of Participants to the BBC CMEP Seminar on 26 January 2006” (here’s the first one: “World Exclusive: CIA 1974 Document Reveals Emptiness of AGW Scares, Closes Debate On Global Cooling Consensus (And More…)“).   Here’s a summary of why such a list if very important, thanks to Bruce Hoult in a Bishop Hill comment I wish I knew how to link to:

  • This is incredible. In Jan 2006 the BBC held a meeting of “the best scientific experts” to decide BBC policy on climate change reporting (t)
  • The BBC has been in court blocking FOI attempts to get the list of the 28 attendees, but it’s just been discovered on the wayback machine (t)  
  • It turns out that only 3 were current scientists (all alarmists). The rest were activists or journalists (t)  
  • The BBC sent four low level representatives: Peter Rippon, Steve Mitchell, Helen Boaden, George Enwistle. All have since risen to power. (t)  
  • Amazingly, those are also the exact four who have thus far resigned this week over the false paedophilia accusations against Lord McAlpine. (t)  

For more background read Andrew Montford’s “Conspiracy of Green” and Andrew Orlowski’s recent article “FOlA judges: Secret 28 who made the BBC Green will not be named“.

The BBC went to great lengths to supress this list (see previous) – citing journalistic scources – when it was just to save themselves severe embarrassment that there were almost NO scientific experts at the meeting AT ALL!!!
