BBC Climate Change Propaganda Violates Its Own Charter

21st Century Wire says…

This latest ‘climate change’ program produced by the BBC is by far away the most sophisticated piece of climatist propaganda made to date.

Designed to target a younger, more mailable audience, as well as intellectually challenged adults, the BBC hired three “mathematicians” to try and prove the usual, yet impossible theory – that anthropogenic global warming is happening, which is causing oceans to rise, and this will wipe out the human race in 20 or 200 years.

Lots of fancy graphics, and some clever trickery of numbers were employed to ‘blind the audience with science’, so to speak.

Why are they so desperate to re-sell this idea if, as they say, “the science is settled”?

Apparently, it’s not…

Seems that BBC’s ‘CLIMATE CHANGE BY NUMBERS’ have been caught cooking the numbers.

James Delingpole

… Here was a programme so lamentably biased, so completely uninterested in counterarguments, so blatantly determined to pull the wool over its viewers’ eyes with straw men, false analogies and calculated misrepresentations of the real points at issue, that it constituted a flagrant breach of the BBC’s statutory obligations to accuracy and impartiality.

In short, this programme broke the law.

Under the BBC Charter 2006, the BBC is legally obliged to “do all it can to ensure that controversial subjects are treated with due accuracy and impartiality in all relevant output.”

Not only did the BBC fail to do this with Climate Change By Numbers but it has also failed to do this with every single documentary it has made on the subject for well over a decade.

(…) The bias (though it actually dates back much further) was formalised in 2006 at a secret meeting, co-organised by the BBC’s house climate activist Roger Harrabin, in which the BBC’s senior executives were briefed by the “best scientific experts” and reached the conclusion that the ‘consensus’ on climate change was now so rock solid that there was no longer any need for the BBC to cover it with even a semblance of impartiality.

(…) But no heads ever rolled as a result of this abuse of licence-fee-payers’ money. Nor – not least because the mainstream media failed to get behind the story – was the BBC put under any serious pressure to mend its ways.

So the result is that the BBC in virtually all its programming dedicated to the topic of “global warming” continues to act as cheerleader for the biggest scam in the history of science – one that is doing no end of harm to the economy, to the integrity of the scientific method, to living standards and, indeed, thanks to the proliferation of bird-slicing, bat-chomping eco-crucifixes, to the environment too.

Watch the BBC documentary here:

In theory, this ought not to be possible. What else is the BBC Trust for, if not to ensure that the BBC lives up to its charter obligations?

But the BBC Trust is part of the problem. It’s supposed to be independent and arm’s-length but in reality it’s anything but. Never was this clearer than in the way it dealt with criticisms of its science coverage, especially that part dedicated to the climate change issue. At great expense it commissioned a report from a left-wing Welshman known as Jones the Snail (because his field of expertise is snails) which completely acquitted the BBC of all charges of bias and concluded that, if anything, the BBC should be even more biased in its climate coverage because “deniers” were little better than people who think that  “AIDS has nothing to do with viruses, the MMR vaccine is unsafe, complex organs could never evolve, or even that the 9/11 disaster was a US government plot.” (No, really. And this guy is a professor…)

There is, at least, a small glimmer of hope that the BBC Trust’s new chairwoman, Rona Fairhead has acknowledged this conflict of interest...
