Royal Society revised text is grist to the BBC climate change mill

BBC television and radio news bulletins this morning include the ‘news’ that:

The UK’s national academy of science, the Royal Society, has launched a new guide to the science of climate change.

The guide has been updated partly as a result of complaints by 43 of the Royal Society’s members who were concerned about the tone of its previous guide.

That was a point-by-point rebuttal of arguments put forward by those who doubt climate change is man-made.

But for many members of the Society, it was too strident and did not fully acknowledge areas of uncertainty.

While the BBC is reporting this part of the story, they have emphasised the key point that the climate change lobbyists in the Royal Society and elsewhere expect of them – the assertion that there is ‘strong evidence’ that the changing climate is largely driven by human activity. You can grind your teeth, watch your patience evaporate and shake your head at the sheer wilfull ignorance of it all by reading the new guide here.

Despite being forced to acknowledge the debate is far from settled, the Royal Society has not moved one millimetre from its quasi-religious belief in man made global warming. Despite supposedly being the UK’s leading scientific body, it remains resolutely determined to corrupt science by retaining a collective closed mind on anything that conflicts with their beliefs – regardless of scientific research that contradicts their view.

Nothing has changed as far as the Royal Society is concerned and the BBC’s editorial staff is making sure people understand that by forcing their chosen narrative down our throats in a 15 second soundbite.
