More Deceptive Images From The BBC

At least these BBC reporters don’t bother to disguise the fact that they are hardcore propagandists for climate alarmism, at licence payer expense of course.

While we’re on the topic of BBC deception, take a look at this image of a coal power station from last year.

Bear in mind, that in 2009 the BBC Trust noted that this guidance had already been issued by BBC News on how to deal with images of cooling towers.



The McGrath article appears to break just about every bit of the guidance:

1) The caption talks about “coal-fired plants like this”, without explaining that the cooling towers have nothing to do with CO2, and would look similar on, say, a nuclear plant.

2) It is hard to see how the cooling towers could be given more prominence.

3) The photo is used in the headline.

As for the grossly deceptive impression that black smoke is being given off, this is in clear breach of the BBC Guidelines, which state:

    Looks like ‘BBC Guidelines’ are just window dressing and can be ignored at will as long as the management allow that to happen – which they clearly do.

  2. Stephen Richards says:

    They have at least a half dozen of enviro reporters to feed. Can’t give up now. BUT, if UKIP get to power in a few years maybe we will see the end of these assholes.

  3. Curious George says:

    They are entirely within the guidelines. In this picture the cooling towers don’t emit CO2 but soot. Actually that would make them a net carbon sink.

  4. That is not soot nor CO2. That is condensing WV, just as intended, to shed waste heat to the atmosphere. Put that waste heat back to the lake, kill the fish.

    Of course the camera trick is to take the shot at dusk so the steam appears dark, when in daylight it obviously isn’t as this shot of Fiddler’s Ferry power station shows:

  6. Joe Public says:

    Here is a video clip of an operational coal-fired power station showing both flue & cooling-tower emissions.

  7. Joe Public says:

    The above video clip show not just any old coal being burnt, but – horror of horrors – that really ‘horrible stuff: lignite!

  8. oldbrew says:

    Trying to demonise cooling towers is really crude and pathetic propaganda, but that’s all the alarmist machine has got I guess.
