At a time when the BBC is falling apart before our eye’s, and a good job too in my opinion, the one person you wouldn’t think be part of their controlled propaganda machine would be David Attenborough. But no, he is as bad as the rest of them. I spotted this post on James Delingpole today. A few day late, sorry but I’ve been busy.
No, David Attenborough: Africa hasn’t warmed by 3.5 degrees C in two decades.
It’s not often one looks to the Guardian’s environment pages for an incisive and thorough critique of green propagandising. But hats off – really – to Leo Hickman for this ruthless deconstruction of an erroneous claim made by David Attenborough on his latest BBC nature documentary that in the last twenty years Africa has warmed by 3.5 degrees C.
3.5 degrees C in two decades? That would indeed be a remarkable temperature rise in anybody’s money. (Remember, since 1850 global mean temperatures have risen by about 0.8 degrees C – and we’re supposed to find that worrying and significant). Which is why, you might have thought, the BBC would have spotted so obvious an error and removed it before the programme went out.
Lies, lies, lies. By just that one untruth, Attenborough has lost all credibility. On the other hand, Dr David Bellamy sacrificed his career to expose the truth. You’re a hero Bellamy.
