I'd like to make my position clear since a few posters have criticised my op.
I'm not a scientist but I can think for myself.
I accept that weather patterns are different now to what I remember from years ago.
Whether this is due to mans activities or not I don't know.
I am all in favour of reducing pollution of the environment where possible.
What I have noticed especially on the BBC is a relentless mention of Global Warming or more recently Climate Change and it is always linked to some
activity by man. We are constantly reminded/bombarded with comments about temperature rises, the effect on wildlife (Polar Bears), CO2, rising sea
levels, melting glaciers, etc, etc
What annoys me is that it is all one way hysteria, designed for what I'm not sure, but somebody is making money from it at my expense.
Fact is the actual facts on the ground are not the same as those being broadcast.
Yes some glaciers are melting, like they always have and always will. Others are growing.
Sea levels are not rising, in fact some studies show they are falling.
Polar bears are not as bad off as Sir David made out in a previous programme.
Temperatures are not rising like Sir David claims, in fact the are falling.
Climate is changing like it always has and always will.
If the BBC told us that one guy claimed the temp was going up but then went on to say that another guy says it's going down and summed up by saying
that we can't be sure, then I wouldn't have a problem with them.
What does bother me is the BBC taking one side of the argument and pushing it as if it was a proven fact when it isn't.
Why make false claims.
If the BBC accept that this particular 'fact' was not in fact true, then why don't they get Sir david to come on TV and explain to the audience why
the 'mistake' came about. He could go on to explain that there are two sides to the Climate Change theory. It is only a theory. There are other
theories. There are other forces of nature which could account for some of the climate changes we experience and buying energy efficient light bulbs
is not going to make any difference against those.
Sure some people are going to feel better thinking they are doing something to save the planet, but imo they are either being conned, or living in a
I saw a bus the other day with a sticker on the back stating it was a Carbon Neutral bus .......what does that even mean ........ made me laugh at
least....... but heh if it gets more passengers on board it must be a good thing.
I am going to admit that I should not have used the word backpeddling, because when I think about it the BBC have not backpeddled. They have been
caught out once again and have decided to airbrush an inconvenient truth out. They still have not admitted that the whole agenda could be
