Was This The BBC’s Worst Climate Show Ever?

The GWPF says: ‘Perhaps David Attenborough’s BBC show would better have been called “Climate: Change The Facts”’. The BBC thinks it has the right to be totally partisan in favour of climate alarmism for some reason, but probably wonders why viewers are abandoning it in droves.

There are times when climate propaganda – for this is what this was – calls to mind the apocalyptic prophets of the Middle Ages, who led popular movements by preaching that the sins of human beings were so great that they could only be redeemed by suffering, in order to create a paradise on earth. Perhaps this is how Attenborough, nature journalism’s Methuselah, sees himself. But climate change is too important to be handled in this manner. It needs rational, well-informed debate. Too often, cheered on by the eco-zealots of Extinction Rebellion, the BBC is intent on encouraging quite the opposite. —David Rose, Mail on Sunday, 21 April 2019

Never mind climate change denial, a worse problem is the constant exaggeration of the subject. I had thought David Attenborough would be above resorting to the subtle propaganda which others have been propagating, linking every adverse weather event to climate change. But apparently not. —Ross Clark, The Spectator, 20 April 2019

A former top executive at the BBC has warned that it is “at risk of being eaten” as new figures reveal that more than 880,000 television licences were cancelled last year. Cancellations among the under-75s rose from 860,192 in 2017-18 to 882,198 in the period from March 2018 to the end of February, new data shows. Mosey, 61, criticised the dumbing-down of news and “the nonsense put on social media by BBC” staff. —The Sunday Times, 21 April 2019

    “rational, well-informed debate”
    “subtle propaganda”
    “dumbing-down of news and “the nonsense…by BBC”

    The pot, the kettle, the fire poker, and Chicken Littles.

    Not any hope here, in toto or in part.

  2. Curious George says:

    The BBC has all the wisdom and a deep knowledge of a 16-year old. Also the Asperger syndrome, characterized by restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests..

  3. Phil Salmon says:

    “Climate: change the facts” is a good one!

    In view of the mindless destruction of the extinction rebellion, they could justifiably be accused of incitement to violence.

  4. Ian says:

    The Beeb’s charge is to INFORM – not to MISINFORM the public.
    It should be held to account.

  5. oldbrew says:

    Ian – re the BBC, I believe Paul Homewood and the GWPF are on the case.

    Piers Corbyn: Extinction Rebellion Protesters are ‘Deranged’
    https://weatheraction.wordpress.com/2019/04/21/piers-corbyn-extinction-rebellion-protesters-are-deranged/

    Maybe a bit of a rant there, but we understand his frustration with all the media coverage of people with little or no real knowledge of climate matters, while professionals like him are mostly sidelined.

    It seems he meant the protest itself was deranged rather than the individuals.

  7. Damian says:

    The Extinction rebellion folk have decided to pause their protests.
    Afterwards, I guess, they’ll deny the pause ever happened and claim that protests were increasing the entire time.

    [reply] 😆

    Climate protesters seek political talks in return for truce

    Mayor calls on Extinction Rebellion to let London get back to business

    Climate protesters in London have signalled they are willing to call a halt to the disruption that has brought parts of London to a standstill in the past week, provided they can open talks with Sadiq Khan, the London mayor, and other political leaders.

    The Washington Times:
    Netflix series challenged on claim that climate change causes cliff-diving walruses

    Skeptics argue some walruses sought to escape to polar bears
    – – –
    Leading the pushback is Canadian zoologist Susan Crockford, who said Netflix’s “Our Planet” is misleading the public about the massive gathering of walruses on the rocky beach, known as a haulout, and the footage showing walruses falling from a steep ledge.

    She blasted claims by series narrator David Attenborough during the episode as “contrived nonsense” and “Attenborough’s tragedy porn.”

    After the warmest Easter (EVAH !!) along comes the most extreme Climate Change report (EVAH !!)
    Under the pompous title of “Climate policy implications of nonlinear decline of Arctic land permafrost and other cryosphere elements”
    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-09863-x
    If only the authors could do real research: They would discover CO2 may have increased https://www.earth-syst-sci-data.net/10/2141/2018/
    and (inconveniently) planet Earth has not changed its snow cover in 40 years (photographic evidence from space)

    Guess these clowns at Lancaster don’t want facts to spoil their Climate Change fantasy. Eh?
