We have now seen a list of the attendees at the BBC “Seminar” in 2006 which led the BBC to conclude that it no longer needed to be objective in its coverage of climate change. Thanks to BLACK PEARL in the comment section on my blog on “The hypocrisy of the BBC and the Guardian” (05 October 2012) for pointing this out. The BBC resisted (with our licence fee money) publishing the list of attendees under the Freedom of Information Act but someone discovered it in an internet archive. We can now see why the BBC did not want us to see this list:
It is quite clear that the BBC chose a group of people based not for their scientific credibility but because of their prejudices. There is hardly a scientist amongst them unless you count the attendee from the UEA which has already been busted for fixing the evidence on climate change. Instead we have attendees from Greenpeace, the Church of England (what do they know about climate change?), Tearfund, Ethiopia, Climate Chaos, and “Television for the Environment”. I wonder which way they all voted? Can anyone spot a climate change sceptic amongst them?
The list of BBC attendees is also interesting. I don’t know whether to regard the attendance of the BBC’s Head of Comedy as farcical or sinister as I suspect it shows how deeply the BBC intended to imbed the spurious climate change agenda in every sort of programming.
