Climate sceptics have been debating the science and the policies of climate change…and Al Jazeera filmed it showing that Sceptics do have valid questions and are perfectly capable of questioning the science and climate policies in a credible manner and should have a place in any discussion about climate change on the BBC:
‘This series of events is a unique chance to be part of the audience of televised events on one of the world’s most influential independent broadcasters.’
Is climate change fact…. or fiction?
Join Mehdi Hasan this Friday as he challenges the world’s leading climate sceptic, atmospheric physicist and MIT Professor Richard Lindzen. Also joining the discussion is Professor Myles Allen (Oxford)
”One can see no (global) warming since 1997″ said Lindzen. “Even if everyone cut emissions in the whole world, it wouldn’t make a lot of difference.”
Agree or disagree?
This event will be televised later on Al-Jazeera English
When you consider the outcome as revealed by Bishop Hill you might think the BBC would not be too keen to report this or engage further with sceptics:
‘There was in fact a great deal of agreement on many aspects of the debate – for example, everyone agreed that Hasan’s “97% of scientists” line was irrelevant (and as Barry Woods explained later isn’t true anyway). Perhaps more importantly, everyone also seemd to agree that current policy choices are foolish, the main differences being over whether emissions reductions are required.’
