Reference…Woman’s Hour (10:11) Woman’s Hour discusses how scientists overblow their research with dramatic claims and how science journalists often don’t understand the science they are reporting on.
The Great Global Warming Swindle continues…broadcast every week on the BBC at varying times on every channel and medium.
The BBC are picking up the pace in pushing the man made global warming angle.
We are getting puff pieces that continue the alarmist scare mongering as well as subtly trying to undermine the sceptics and the perception, the very real perception, that global warming has stopped.
Matt McGrath is stepping successfully into Richard Black’s rather dodgy shoes with this attack on sceptics:
With quotes like these given prominence you know exactly what McGrath’s intentions are:
Some of what the sceptics are saying is either wishful thinking or totally dishonest” Prof Jean-Pascal van Ypersele IPCC
Bart Verheggen is an atmospheric scientist and blogger who supports the mainstream view of global warming. He said that sceptics have discouraged an open scientific debate.
“When scientists start to notice that their science is being distorted in public by these people who say they are the champions of the scientific method, that could make mainstream researchers more defensive.
“Scientists probably think twice now about writing things down. They probably think twice about how this could be twisted by contrarians.”
McGrath tells us that ‘There are many different shades of opinion in the sceptical orbit.’
But he doesn’t give any of them any credence….and he doesn’t ask similar questions of the supporters of AGW….for instance those who don’t care about the science but see it purely as an opportunity to push for more Socialism and State control….as well as handing out billions to third world countries. McGrath isn’t interested in the vested interests of those, including the scientists and politicians, who have a great deal at stake in having AGW ‘confirmed’.
David Shukman follows on faithfully on the same path… this morning on the Today programme (08:41) when a sleight of hand was played with the evidence…or lack of evidence for global warming and the causes of the ‘pause’.
We hear that in the last 100 years the temperature of the oceans has been increasing….according to the Clams as scientists have recently discovered.
Helpful coincidence…the IPCC is trying to explain away the ‘pause’ in global warming..and can’t…but they have come up with a guess that they have all agreed to agree on…to present a common front, a consensus….that the oceans are absorbing the heat and causing a ‘slowdown’ in temperature rises…..and in a timely intervention, miraculously the Clams ‘prove’ it.
Great how Shukman feeds questions to his scientist stooge, knowing the answers already….
Do scientists exaggerate? No! Climate scientists don’t exaggerate…they are just very, very concerned about the climate….and that concern is for the future…you may be cold now…but…you’re going to fry in 50 years time….act now!
Is there a pause in global warming? No! You may be cold but someone somewhere is warm and getting warmer…oh yes you may get records that buck the trend for a few years but that doesn’t mean that the globe as a whole is not warming.
Really? Didn’t the great IPCC itself admit that warming had stalled?
The IPCC has itself released a tricky bit of alarmist propaganda…designed not only to frighten us but to try to undermine any scepticism based on cooler temperatures.
Britain’s climate could get cooler over the next 80 years, a major UN report on global warming is to suggest.
It’s a fantastic con trick….if temperatures go up they’ll say we were wrong on the time scale maybe…but we were right about global warming…
and if temperatures go down…they say…look, it’s caused by global warming.
It’s a win win for the IPCC what ever the temperature is.
