Tonight on BBC4 viewers will be treated the the latest piece of naked BBC propaganda masquerading as an open minded examination of climate change sceptics, called – imaginatively – Meet The Climate Sceptics. The pro Greenpeace environmentalist and film maker Rupert Murray claims:
This is a story about the world of climate scepticism and my journey as I put aside my environmental beliefs, rid myself of any bias, and try to really understand why some people think that our carbon dioxide emissions are not a problem.
Right off the bat the default position Murray holds is that CO2 is a problem and causing changes to our climate. As such he is clearly not putting aside his environmental beliefs and demonstrates he retains a bias. His introduction is fallacious doublespeak and his intent is to lampoon people with highly selective and distorted representations.
Being the BBC they were incapable of commissioning someone with an open mind. They had to use a film maker who exists within their circle, so naturally it had to be an environmentalist. To describe this as a stitch up is an understatement. The narrative is always one-way on the BBC and there is never an opportunity for a prominent member of the counter consensus to make a programme in this manner for broadcast. It is blatant bias and it is outrageous that we taxpayers should be compelled to subsidise this campaign to brainwash, misinform and mislead people.
