No mention of the huge rise in ice at the Arctic from the BBC, usually so keen to tell us that ice is melting there…but they have switched their attention to the Antarctic where they have 3 reports on the same story…..of course because they can relate to us a story of rising sea levels and a doom laden scenario for the future:
NEW 7 hours agoA group of scientists are about to embark on a mission to one the remotest places on earth – the Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica.
NEW 7 hours agoA team of British scientists is about to begin a six-year effort to try to understand the changes occurring in Antarctica’s huge Pine Island Glacier.
Science & Environment / NEW 10 hours ago… in velocity in recent decades. Its contribution to sea level rise is now greater than any other glacier on the planet. The British Antarctic Survey-led…
On Thursday the BBC had a Green energy day and energy secretary Ed Davey made an appearance on 5Live to give us his take on all things green.
What did he have to say?
Wind farms only get paid when they produce energy. Now we know that’s not true…they get enormous subsidies to get built, their electricity is subsidised and when they have to be switched off the operator gets paid compensation.
Campbell said nothing to object though.
Nor did he object when Davey told us that renewables offer us reliable sources of energy….for example, tidal or biomass technology.
Note the missing renewable…Wind Turbines….not that Campbell noticed.
So an easy day for Davey to push his green propaganda and sell us this expensive white/green elephant that is going to cost the earth…so to speak.
The BBC doesn’t delve too deeply into the problems with green energy…obviously embracing it enthusiastically on Thursday.
However Der Spiegel does…and frequently….relating the disasters of green energy policies that have been inflicted upon Germany.
The BBC rarely, if ever picks up on these stories from Germany…they don’t paint a pretty picture of green energy success…quite the opposite in fact…which is no doubt why the BBC avoids them:
Germany’s agressive and reckless expansion of wind and solar power has come with a hefty pricetag for consumers, and the costs often fall disproportionately on the poor.
The BBC still shilling for ‘Big Green’
