As many will know who take an interest in these things, a recent GWPF newsletter reported that France Télévisions has sacked their weather man, Philipe Verdier, for having the temerity to write a book Climate Investigations challenging the orthodoxy on climate change impacts.
Here we have a man who believes in climate change but suggests that some of the impacts will be positive and some of the worse ones will not be a problem to developed nations like France.
Given the blatant bias in BBC broadcasting on climate change I was rather surprised to find the following interview available on the world service:
What is less surprising is the tone of the interviewer and the blatant spinning of climate hysteria. Apparently Australia is in a deep drought due to climate change, whilst other countries are flooded and there are increasing numbers of climate refugees! Seriously.
Interesting, despite agreeing that he is known as “Mr Weather” at no point did the interviewer acknowledge that perhaps he might know what he is talking about. She did question his timing in releasing the book just before the COP21 conference in Paris as if that was a bad thing. Doh!
All that nonsense is bad enough but the chilling phrase I noted was when the interviewer summarised that his main problem was related to “this freedom of speech idea” (at 3:43) . That tells you everything you need to know about the BBC today on this topic.
