He should have listened to naturalist David Bellamy, cancelled by the BBC for saying man-made global warming is ‘poppycock’.

“We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth. We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, scorn, and the like, towards those who disagree with us.”Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870-1924). From “Reflections on the Failure of Socialism” by Max Eastman.

The above could well have been written by today’s climate alarmists who seem determined to ignore empirical evidence. They refuse debate and shout down anyone who might challenge their unfounded messages of climate disaster.

There is little doubt that, for many years, Sir David Attenborough’s wildlife documentaries have provided information and entertainment for millions of viewers around the world. It is such a pity that, in his twilight years, we have witnessed his transition from nature communicator to little more than a mouthpiece for the green zealots and others that seek to…

    A tour de force. Brilliant gathering of relevant data and papers.

    The broad, societal (and especially the entertainment community) hysteria over “global climate” rides smugly (as entertainers always have) on the back of utterly false dogma, in climate’s case on the total breakdown of scientific competence. The public are mindless eloi, happily playing in the sunshine, but totally cut off from REALLY and PROPERLY exercising their god-given responsibility for their own lives.

    When everyone finally understands that there IS NO valid “global climate” science and no COMPETENT “climate” scientists (none at all, on either side of the war), and above all, NO “greenhouse effect” (and no “greenhouse gases”…and no “radiation forcings” and thus no competent “radiation transfer” theory), then the war can finally be properly joined, and the evil empire destroyed, with much ACTUAL and UNAVOIDABLE bloodshed (for having taken so long facing up to the truth).

    Senile old fool. IMHO.

    It goes back. See NOTALOTOFPEOPLEKNOWTHAT search box Major Complaint April 2016 in which Chapter 8 is devoted to a decade of Attenboro non science errors. I recall the very end of Blue Planet where we had o dear collapse of the Gt barrier reef, oh god not again flooded Miami streets and a jar of fizzing seashells, pathetic and distressing, the poor old thing.

    Follow the trail of ££££ to Attenborough’s pockets.

    Please, that picture is going to disturb the coulrophobic.

    Funny how so many of these warmist talking heads spend so much time jetting round the world, then complaining about their own ’emissions’.

    Makes it hard to believe they mean any of what they assert about the Earth’s supposedly dire predicament, and claimed causes thereof 😎

    Addressing Climate Change Will Require Radical Changes: the 1.5-Degree Lifestyles Report is Out

    The technical report ‘1.5-Degree Lifestyles: Targets and options for reducing lifestyle carbon footprints’ demonstrates that changes in consumption patterns and dominant lifestyles are a critical and integral part of the solutions package to addressing climate change.

    Live in a box, give up meat and forget about non-electric travel – for starters. Unless you’re an approved bigwig or one of their team of course.

    Lifestyle changes to keep the world from warming up
    by Leiden University

    Scientists widely agree that we must limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius to avoid catastrophic climate impacts. Environmental scientist Laura Scherer investigates how we should change lifestyles to achieve this temperature goal. Her research is part of the 4.8-million-euro Horizon 2020 project EU 1.5° Lifestyles.

    We can laugh at the nonsense of it all, but the EU’s 4.8 million euros aren’t joking.

    David Attenborough warns of ‘crippling climate change’ as he is given role at Cop26 in Glasgow
    10th May 2021

    Sir David has been named the summit’s ‘People’s Advocate’ and will make an address to political leaders about why immediate climate action is important.

    He won’t be going to Glasgow on a bike to promote his uber-alarmism.

    Thank you Dr Happs for an outstanding article. I used to admire Sir David but I now feel ashamed that he is British. However, he is an old man and old men might deserve some leeway in their errors of judgement. The real criminals in this are his protagonists at the BBC, those hypocrites that preach inclusiveness and tolerance but cannot tolerate anyone who disagrees with their unscientific dogma. I suggest that an equivalent article might be written about our other erring scientist Brian Cox.
