You could not make this up. But it’s true. A colleague at Cambridge sent me last night a link to the Futerra communications agency. It’s a swish outfit with offices in London and New York. Set up with the help of taxpayers’ money, it runs courses for a legion of big corporations (BT, Unilever), NGOs (Greenpeace, the Carbon Trust)) government departments (DEFRA, DFID), and it teaches them “how to communicate” (spread propaganda) about “Climate Change” and “Sustainability”. In other words, they are eco-freaks. Their messages include:
Forget the climate change detractors. Those who deny climate change science are irritating, but unimportant. The argument is not about if we should deal with climate change, but how we should deal with climate change.
Guess who their other clients include? Of course, the BBC. This is what the Futerra website says about our “impartial” £3.5bn-a-year public service broadcaster:
Various BBC teams have enjoyed training sessions on communicating sustainable development. Participants have ranged from producers for EastEnders to researchers on the CBeebies channel. We also developed the creative PR strategy for the launch of the BBC’s online ethical fashion magazine Thread.
The BBC courses were not specifically about “climate change” as such, but one look at the site shows that these people are fanatical about forcing change on the world by Orwellian propaganda, with “climate change” as the fulcrum. Its core message is “revolution“, under which it says its main aims are:
Sustainability, green, climate change, fair trade, ethical, CSR, eco-chic.
And the BBC spends our money sending its staff there. No wonder no-one treats Climategate seriously, they’ve all been brainwashed. To the boys and girls at the BBC, those who deny climate change are “irritating”. Full stop.
For the full gory details, you can download their brainwashing manual here. No doubt a copy is kept in every BBC desk.
