The BBC ‘Catastrophical AGW’ All-Out Assault Has Started!

COP15 is three weeks away, and as expected things are getting hotter by the minute in AGW media outlets such as the BBC.

Just a quick look at Nov 17: in the Science & Environment home page, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten stories with a single focus.

Then incredibly in the “Scotland” pages an article and a video, part of a “three part special” filmed…in Thailand! Including what is likely to be the silliest ever report ending: “Fiona Walker, reporting Scotland, in the Gulf of Thailand

(alas, they could kid themselves only up to a point: the “three part special” is classified under “Scotland politics” and Ms Walker clearly introduced as “BBC Scotland’s social affairs reporter“).

It is going to get worse before it gets better.

    ‘Catastrophical AGW’ is not the proper term.

    The proper term is CACA (catastrophic anthropogenic climate alteration).

      a new acronym with a bright future indeed…

    Your story number two is about the thoughts of the Danish PM. The Danes have already contributed enough to the AGW debate with Andersen’s “Emperor’s New Clothes”. So thank you Mr Rasmussen, and basta.
    So I turned to the link to Richard Black’s thoughts, headlined “We are into a miasma of nuance here” and I was not disappointed. Deep into his article, I found this: “The runes on this story appear to shift their shape daily”. Strange; runes that shift their shape exist only in the “Lord of the Rings”.
    One day, when the hysteria is over, I shall be writing my thesis on “the influence of Tolkien on late 20th century politics” with particular reference to Green fears of a dangerous Ring of carbon and oxygen atoms capable of destroying Middle Earth. (Meanwhile, I shall continue my travails as a humble orc in the service of Big Oil).

    Maurizio, you’re obviously as obsessed by the BBC as I am by Guardian Environment. Let’s see who’s the looniest.
    Your first reference, the article by R Black on the 6°C warming by 2100 has its exact equivalent at Guardian Environment, right down to the photos of nasty brown steam photographed at dawn or sunset.
    The research is about likely CO2 emissions, but the headline states that its about likely temperatures. Everyone knows the philosopher’s stone is to be found in the head of a toad. So the man who finds a toad can announce “I’ve found the philosopher’s stone” and the BBC and Guardian science correspondents will nod in agreement.

    The BBC seems to be in a tizzy about AGW. In contrast, my local rural paper hasn’t mentioned AGW even once in the last 7 years.

    Smacks of desperation, it’s what you get when the loonies are running the asylum.

    I’m guessing the “AG” is Al Gore … but what is the “W” again?

    • 2009/11/18 at 12:50

      davis – no Al Gore this time – it’s just “Anthropogenic Global Warming”
