Nothing is safe from the Church of Climatology’s believers, including remakes of John Wyndham’s classic the Day of the Triffids. The BBC have done a remake of Day of the Triffids, part 1 was shown last night, with part 2 tonight. As a child Aardvark enjoyed the 1950’s film with Howard Keel, so a new version with modern day effects has got to be better, well in theory anyway.
The BBC version is loosely based on the book, in so much as most people are blind and there are big mobile flesh eating plants everywhere. The CGI effects are very good and it was throughly enjoyable until suddenly the reason for the Triffids was Climate Change, specifically Global Warming. A quick pause and replay confirmed that the AGW lie was being pushed by the BBC not only in fact, but also in fiction; which is where Anthropogenic Global Warming belongs anyway.
The Triffids are now being farmed as they produce clean oil, this was cited in the script as the farming of Triffids stopped the burning of fossil fuels and thus caused an end to Global Warming, the script then continued to say that the cessation of burning fossil fuels has caused Global Cooling, which is ironic to say the very least.
Later on it is again repeated that the human race is this mess because of Global Warming/Climate Change; the Church of Climatology spreads it’s message of fear not only in debunked science but also in fiction the message is being preached.
The BBC is known for broadcasting Sophisticated Government Climate Change Propaganda in the guise of pseudo scientific fact, what is a very rapid step up, is the attempted indoctrination of the AGW lie in works of fiction, expect more.
The Met Office whose predictions about impending doom in 2050 have dropped their second predictive clanger of the year, it’s going to be a mild winter.
April 30th 2009 Met Office predict barbecue summer
July 29th 2009 Met Office admits “barbecue summer is off”
October 2009 Met Office predict that Britain will have milder than average winter
December 2009 It’s colder than it has been for years
This is the Met Office who can’t predict the weather 3 months in advance without being 100% wrong, how can their predictions for 40 years from now be taken seriously?

The letter from Dr. Sonja Boehmer-Christiansen to the BBC complaining about their selective omissions from a program on Anthropogenic Global Warming makes clear that the respected scientist considers the BBC to be broadcasting “Sophisticated Government Climate Change Propaganda”, this is not the first time that the BBC have been accused of AGW bias.
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 line, especially as the Telegraph and many blogs including this one reported this a change of attitude on the BBC’s reporting. Mann in his email says: “
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?”

Suprise that the BBC is not following the AGW line and broadcasting only IPCC and CRU propaganda, what happend to impartial reporting? Read the rest of this entry →
Dr. Sonja Boehmer-Christiansen in a letter to the BBC:
“However, a number of outright mistakes and omission created enough bias to turn the programme into sophisticated UK government propaganda.”
The letter points out some interesting facts about carbon capture:
“In any case, if carbon capture and sequestration becomes eligible for carbon trading, taxpayers would have to pay for the ‘evil’ gas to be injected (at huge cost) back into depleting gas and oil fields, thereby increasing their yield”
When they talk of carbon capture it is normally pumping the gas into old mine workings, little mention is made of using the CO2 to pump out the last of the oil and gas from fields nearing the end of production. This has the makings of a very profitable scam for governments and oil companies who between them make the cost of energy spiral ever upward, they can then charge for the carbon capture which is then used to force more fossil fuels out of the ground and make more profits and tax in a self-perpetuating scheme.
Lastly, you paid too little to attention to a major consequence of the prevailing blame game. The accusation that global warming is the alleged responsibility of the rich and the ‘West’, is already leading to bribery, dubious aid streams and the ignoring of other factors causing poverty and disasters in poor, badly governed nations.

The BBC continues it’s unquestioning support for the AGW lie on the Politics Show with a guest appearance of Nick Cohen from the Church of Climatology.
Cohen really had very little of value to say apart from the usual warmist propaganda and trying to play down Climategate. One of the most amazing things about Cohen is how little he knows about the Science of Climate Change and the prominence of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.
According to Cohen the CRU’s role in Climate Change is not that important, when in fact it is pivotal to the entire belief system of the Church of Climatology.
Even if it were not, then the fact that “scientists” have been caught fixing the data in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA would ring alarms bells in the minds of most rational people, not Cohen.
Like the leader of his church Cohen believes that November 12th 2009 was 10 years ago.
Cohen is nothing if not a devout believer and quickly resorted to the last-ditch defence of the warmist FEAR. Read the rest of this entry →
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.
Richard Black is a BBC environment correspondent and is mentioned in one of Michael Mann’s Climategate emails: Read the rest of this entry →

Most of the main news and media outlets offer discussion forums where people are able to discuss a wide range of topics including religion, politics and sport.
The idea being that people can have discussions and exchange ideas and views, now Aardvark keeps away from religious discussions for the obvious reasons but does enjoy posting and debating politics on several of these discussion forums.
A few months ago Ben Stephenson drama commissioning controller at the BBC said this :”We need to foster peculiarity, idiosyncrasy, stubborn-mindedness, left-of-centre thinking“. This is a view held not only at the publicly funded BBC but also by other news organisations. As Labour’s poll rating has fallen so the censorship of posts in discussion forums has increased with certain subjects being taboo, others the weight of the government behind them to surpress the story.
Firstly the taboo subject: Climate Change. We are being fed one view not open to discussion or question.
Try posting anything that goes against the line on Climate Change and the post will be culled at the speed of light.
Climate Change has given the self appointed experts and the Big Brother social engineering and control freaks the opportunity of a lifetime to achieve their ends and find new and inventive ways of taxation. The great climate change lie has taken on a life of it’s own now.
The censoring of Climate Change has been noticed by professional journalists as well. “The reaction of the Guardian – to delete any mention of the affair from their comment threads – has been extraordinary“. Melanie Phillips in The Spectator
The Baroness Scotland scandal is the most recent case of attempted story surpression by Brown and his Labour cronies. Try to post anything to do with the story and it gets pulled faster than Climate Change.
Socialism and free speech and thought dont exactly go hand in hand, now in power Obama had this to say about blogs “I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding.”
Obama was happy enough when the blogs supported him in his bid for power, now he has achieved power and some bloggers dont blindly follow his attempt to create Brown’s socialist nightmare in the USA he has turned against them. Posts in discussion forums that dont support his line also get pulled.
In this country disgraced former Communities Secretary Hazel Blears had this to say “rightwing bloggers such as Guido Fawkes are fuelling public mistrust and cynicism“.
Nothing about centre or leftwing bloggers just those nasty right wing bloggers that dare think for themselves and can spot the lie and mistruth.
