Well it looks like the BBC have learned very little this year and the response to this program should be interesting. There are more than enough journalists/ news editors around that are very aware of the issues that were glossed over and waved away..
The Professor spoke to Phil Jones, as the enquiries that he said had exonerated everybody, failed to ask a key questions… Could he have perhaps actually have asked Phil Jones.
Why did you ask colleagues to delete emails relating to the IPCC process? And, why did you feel the need to ask?
The program was a defence of ‘climate science’ very very thinly disguised as a general program about attacks on science generally, particulary loathesome was a casual use of deniars by a Nobel Prize winner.
Of course Professor Paul Nurse is completely unrelated to the many fields that make up ‘climate science’ so perhaps he naively thought all was well…
Next time James delingpole gives an interview to anybody with connections to the BBC, I suggest that makes an audio recording of the entire process for himself. A little trick to keep reporters honest one or 2 politicians could have warned him to use.
Why this Professor, could they not find any physicists?
This program may backfire in a spectacular fashion on the BBC…
Have the learnt nothing in the last year.
