Louise Gray continues to mislead on climate change

Following hot on the heels of speculation that the Barclay Brother Beano is planning to destroy its online presence by disappearing behind a paywall, we see the competence of one of the Beano’s more laughable hacks being called into question. Quelle horreur!

Yes, it’s ‘Little Lou’, aka Louise Gray, our favourite Telegraph eco propagandist in chief who has been caught ink handed engaging in some unacceptable spin and distortion.  Little Lou ‘sexed up’ the personal views of one loopy scientist (Kevin Anderson) to make it appear his views – a call for rationing in the developed world to fight climate change – are more mainstream than they really are and are held by a number of scientists. Naughty. As Donna Laframboise explains:

Gray, who appears to have interviewed Anderson, fails to make it clear that the bit about rationing represents Anderson’s personal opinion. It is highly misleading to suggest, as her article does, that this measure enjoys the support of “physicists and chemists from some of world’s most respected scientific institutions.” Oh, and the remarks [Gray put in her article] about heating, lighting, replacing appliances, restricting food choices and travel – none of those ideas are discussed in the paper, either.

When one considers the utter rubbish that La Gray churns out without being pulled over the editorial coals, perhaps the Beano’s suggested retreat behind a paywall cannot come quickly enough. If nothing else it will reduce the number of people who are exposed to the inaccurate and misleading drivel Little Lou publishes to maintain the hype about supposedly man made climate change.

    Ouch! In the town of Ojmjakon (Oymyakon I believe) in Russia, the temperature on the 30th November dropped to -53°C and for three consecutive preceeding days. The highest during the last five days has been -45°C. This is a point that is on a parallel with Iceland, but far inland, and certainly not as far North as one can get by land.
