SitatThe BBC is under a statutory obligation to remain impartial, so this gave the "brainstorm" a historic significance: the BBC has not previously abandoned impartiality in peacetime.
SitatOh the irony. The BBC, supposedly the public owned broadcaster, had a meeting with 28 climate experts in Jan 2006 where it decided on its policies on climate coverage. It led to the extraordinary move of the BBC abandoning any semblance of impartiality (a principle that's so important it's written into its charter). In the meantime, the BBC did everything it could to hide those influential experts names. It's been nearly seven years since the seminar, but now we know why their names were top secret. No one is even pretending this was about "the science". The BBC has become a PR wing of Greenpeace...
SitatHulme is a slippery customer. In the aftermath of Climategate, he could often be heard on the radio posing as the voice of sweet reason and moderation. Privately, Hulme was one of the arch Post Modern Scientists (read Watermelons for more on this) who helped build the great global warming scam into the Frankenstein's monster it is today. In that private email, he shows his true face.
SitatThere is an unusual story developing as a result of an ongoing FOI request from Tony Newbery, some excellent detective work by Maurizio Morabito – see discussion at Bishop Hill here. Also see context from Andrew Orlowski here. Several years ago, the BBC stated in a report:The BBC has held a high-level seminar with some of the best scientific experts, and has come to the view that the weight of evidence no longer justifies equal space being given to the opponents of the consensus [on anthropogenic climate change].Tony Newbery (see Harmless Sky blog) was curious as to the identity of these "scientific experts", and filed a Freedom of Information Act request. Rather than simply complying with the request, the BBC refused the request. Tony appealed to the ICO and lost.
Sitat fra: Amatør1 på november 14, 2012, 00:26:34 AMDette er den egentlige rollen til NGOer, lybby-organisasjoner etc. Deres rolle er å bli betalt av regjeringene for å bedrive lobbyvirksomhet og annet press mot selvsamme regjering for å skape et inntrykk av en opinion som vil ha det eliten har bestemt.Det er intet annet en astroturfing på høyt plan det er snakk om. Noen som tør vedde på at det samme ikke skjer i Norge?
SitatThe BBC has expended considerable effort, not to mention a very large amount of licence fee-payers' money, upon suppressing evidence of its biased reporting....The BBC spent thousands of pounds blocking Mr Newbery's action, which finally failed last Friday, implacably refusing to make those names publicly available. Now we know why......So the BBC censored its journalism on climate change on the basis of a seminar of climate change partisans, zealots and assorted distinctly unauthoritative others, whom it wholly misleadingly described as some of the 'best scientific experts'. It then spent thousands of pounds of public money trying to conceal this fact on the spurious grounds -- as with the Balen report – that journalistic processes had to remain private. This scandal, however, goes way beyond the issue of climate change. The notion that the seminar's co-organiser, the International Broadcasting Trust, is an objective body is quite false. It is nothing other than a left-wing lobby group supported by a veritable who's who of radical developmental and third world-activist NGOs – including Amnesty, Christian Aid, Human Rights Watch, Islamic Relief, Muslim Aid, Oxfam, Save the Children and WWF (World Wildlife Fund)...
Sitat"The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) is a forum for collaboration on climate change for European investors. The group's objective is to catalyse greater investment in a low carbon economy by bringing investors together to use their collective influence with companies, policymakers and investors. The group currently has over 50 members, including some of the largest pension funds and asset managers in Europe, and represents assets of around €4trillion. A full list of members is available on the membership page".Did you catch that: Four trillion Euros!"IIGCC chairman and BBC head of pensions investment Peter Dunscombe..."The BBC is the Chair of this Carbon Trading driven investment scheme!Recall: "to use their collective influence with companies, policymakers and investors"I would say that the BBC has a major non-Scientific reason for their Human Induced Global Warming Bias.
SitatThe International Broadcasting Trust is an educational and media charity working to promote high quality broadcast and online coverage of the developing world. Our aim is to further awareness and understanding of the lives of the majority of the world´s people – and the issues which affect them. Our work focuses on three main areas of activity: - lobbying Government, regulators and broadcasters - dialogue with the main public service broadcasters - research on broadcast and online coverage of the developing world We regularly publish research and organise events to encourage a greater understanding of the role which the media plays in engaging people in the UK with the wider world.We are a membership based organisation. We organise briefings for our members so that they can work more closely with broadcasters and producers. For a current membership list see IBT members page
SitatDespite the refusal of the BBC to reveal the details, the truth will out. We now have the list of members of the seminars organised jointly by the International Broadcasting Trust (IBT) and Cambridge Media and Environment Programme (CMES), aimed at changing BBC policy on climate change.Already, via the Register, we know something of the CMES, established by activist Joe Smith and the BBC's Roger Harrabin. CMEP received funding from the hardline green organisation WWF and the UK government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. It later transpired that £15,000 was also received from the University of East Anglia - the institution at the heart of the Climategate scandal. However, equal partner in the enterprise is the IBT, about which less is known. The accounts of this charity, though, show that in the five years ending 31 December 2011, it was paid no less that £397,691 by DFID.Thus, we have an organisation which, by its own account, "lobbies Government, broadcasters and regulators to promote high quality broadcast and online coverage of the developing world, its people and the issues which affect them" – including major input on climate change – yet has been paid just short of £400,000 of taxpayers' money to do so.......However, apart from the "usual suspects" such as Friends of the Earth and WWF, there is a particularly interesting member of the IBT – a trust which, as one will remember, lobbies the BBC. That is the Media Trust. And the "corporate members" of this trust are ... the BBC as well as Sky, ITV, News International and Google. Neglecting the other delicious members, and focusing on the BBC, it seems we have a situation where the state broadcaster is a corporate member of the Media Trust which, in turn, is a member of the International Broadcasting Trust, which is paid by the Government (DFID) to lobby the ... er ... BBC about climate change. And so the circle closes.Small wonder it is really that the BBC did not want too much of a spotlight focused on these seminars.
