BBC To Investigate The BBC Over Climate Change Propaganda
There is something inherently worrying about an organisation investigating itself, human nature, vested interests and money tend to make this a rather less than reliable process.
The BBC’s record on reporting Anthropogenic Global Warming is at best suspect, at worse blatant ManBearPig propaganda.
The Climategate emails, datafiles and programs were in the possesion of the BBC a full month before they were put on the Russian server, yet the BBC did nothing.
The Climategate emails show an unhealty relationship between Michael Mann at Penn State, Phil Jones at the CRU and the IPCC; the BBC’s “science correspondent” Richard Black has some questions to answer about his professional relationship with Michael Mann and Phil Jones.
Climategate is the BBC’s smoking gun; a virtual news blackout except to report a hacking crime while completely ignoring the content of the leaked emails and data. The left wing eco-mentalists are piling on the pressure with the BBC’s web site pouring more AGW propaganda and fear, fawning over Michael Mann, when the incompetent climate scientist’s own colleagues say Mann has no credibility.
The mobilisation of Labour Luvvies is complete when deeply unfunny comedian Marcus Prickstock pontificates on Question Time about the impending heating up of the world and obediently spouts the correct “Climate Rationalist” line like a good little left of centre poodle.
When the BBC finally reported Climategate the emphasis was on the hacking crime, no mention was made of the potential ramifications of the of the information leaked, in short Climategate did not happen for the BBC. This reminds Aardvark of the begining of Air America when a plane crashes and CIA agent says to Mel Gibson “That did not happen“. Gibson replies “It may not have happend for you, it may not have happend for me but it sure as shit happened for him”
The BBC’s coverage of Copenhagen probably won an Al Gore award for unbaised and total adhereance to the teachings of the Church of Climatology, the supporting propaganda broadcast was either laughable or just plain stupid, Hot Planet being the supreme example of the genre. Hot Planet is still availble on iPlayer if you have an hour to waste and need a good laugh.
Dr. Sonja Boehmer-Christiansen wrote to the BBC accusing it of broadcasting sophisticated Government Climate Change propaganda:
“However, a number of outright mistakes and omission created enough bias to turn the programme into sophisticated UK government propaganda.”
The Climategate emails show the unhealthy connection between Michael Mann and the BBC:
Michael Mann wrote:
extremely disappointing to see something like this appear on BBC. its particularly odd, since climate is usually Richard Black’s beat at BBC (and he does a great job). From what I can tell, this guy was formerly a weather person at the Met Office.
We may do something about this on RealClimate, but meanwhile it might be appropriate for the Met Office to have a say about this, I might ask Richard Black what’s up here?
Searching through the Climategate emails for “BBC” gives some interesting results as in this email sent on 12th October 2009 to Michael Mann about an article on the BBC website about “What happend to Global Warming”. Michael Mann is suprised that the BBC are not following the AGW gospel.
The BBC Trust is to investigate the scientific coverage of Climate Change which is quite frankly not good enough, the BBC pumps out Climate Change propaganda in all it’s programs be they children’s entertainment, drama, documentary and even on Radio 2.
In a remake of John Wyndham’s Day of the Triffids AGW is the reason that Triffids were farmed and that the world nearly came to an end.
Aardvark complained to the BBC and you can read their response here.
The importance of the BBC in the matrix of Michael Mann, Phil Jones, UK Met Office and the IPCC is such that this investigation could be second biggest nail in the coffin of the warming alarmists and their message of doom and fear. The wooden stake through the heart of AGW will be the civil and criminal trials in the USA.
This is a really important story so here are three different takes:
For example, there’s this from a recent edition of the children’s news programme Newsround, explaining – just in case kids got any funny ideas to the contrary – that the current snow showers are nothing to celebrate but are in fact yet another sure sign of man’s evil. (Mysteriously the BBC has already deleted this programme from its iPlayer files, so I can’t give you a link). James Delingpole
Daily Mail: The investigation will also focus on coverage of issues like genetically modified foods, the MMR vaccine and the way it reports on new technologies.
It will scrutinise the way the BBC has handled scientific findings on areas which affect ‘public policy’ and are ‘matters of political controversy’.
A scientific expert will be hired to lead the review and it will concentrate on coverage of the issues featured in its news and factual output.
The corporation’s Royal Charter and Agreement requires that the BBC covers controversial subjects with due impartiality.
After the news broke, the award-winning scientist Al Gore was overheard to say on a call to the BBC, “I could be available for that position if your country thaws out by spring.” But we’re certain Mr. Gore was already on the top of the BBC’s list of candidates. more at Climategate.com
