BBC pushes sinking Maldives narrative again

Once again the BBC’s sense of balance sees them interview someone with a vested financial interest in the climate change narrative as it relates to rising sea levels.

This time it is the turn of the President of the Maldives, who continually holds out the begging bowl claiming the west is causing sea levels to rise and therefore needs to pour money into his island state’s economy. And why shouldn’t he? After all this whole issue is about redistributing money from us to them, not about anything to do with the environment.

Not A Sheep dropped the BBC a line with some pertinent observations that could form the basis of a question or two. What odds will you offer that these observations were singularly ignored because they are inconvenient to the global warming narrative? The BBC’s bias on this subject is unacceptable.

    Weird isn’t it? The Maldives sea-level fraud is well established and could be a big story if the BBC made some effort to be impartial and informative. We live in interesting times.
