  2. Gummans Gubbe says:

    The emails were not “hacked”. They were most likely leaked from an insider, who kept doing it before every “climate meeting” or whatever these perps calls it.

    According to british law an insider leaks can bee used in the courts, stolen data not. So in their panic they reported the data stolen, thus verifying the correctness of the emails.

    • Al Shelton says:

      Thanks…. I never knew that. It is extremely important.

    • Andy says:

      You claim they were not hacked and then write “most likely” for leaked.

      You can’t make a claim and then say “most likely”… it either happened or didn’t.

      I’m not saying here that they were leaked or hacked, just that your statement is contradictory.

    This is exactly why the BBC is loathed by millions in the UK.

    Here they are shamelessly revising the entire Climategate scandal, and it was a scandal, to suit their partisan agenda.

    I haven’t paid their £145 TV licence fee for years and I’ll never pay it again, either.

  4. StewGreen says:

    The BBC must have fantastic new evidence
    cos they call it “hacked”
    ie definitely not a leak
    #RewritingHistory

    • They call the scientist impersonators “scientists,” suggesting those who use unaltered data “aren´t really” scientists. Look up petitionproject.org and compare how it is misdepicted on das Wikipedia. When was the last time you saw a list of Cassandra scientists-with-degrees long enough to stand as 97% versus a 3% comprising only the 31000+ who signed the petition? That would be 5x the combined APS and Amer. Chem Soc. memberships. Indeed, discussions at Physics Today are hard pressed to come up with more than abt 1 million physicists and astronomers in the world.

      • Martin says:

        The 97 % number was created by Australian psychologist John Cook in his rather dubious 2013 paper.

      • Logic n reason says:

        Note the term climate change denier in the media pack. The propaganda spewed out by this organisation would make Dr Goebbels proud. I recommend an excellent book called BBC : Brainwashing Britain by David Sedgwick. The book breaks down how the corporation has such an insidious hold on our society.

  5. Bob Hoye says:

    It was on November 17, ten years ago when the “Climategate” scandal broke. And the communities of those living off of climate hysteria were shocked. Shocked that evidence of their conspiracy was revealed.
    The scandal got an official “whitwash”.
    Much has happened in the decade since.
    Climate hysteria is still being promoted; only because it is so lucrative. Not for the sake of knowledge, which studies have continued.An impressive El Nino came along and shoved temps up in 2015-2016.
    Control freaks continue to employ fear to establish political control, ultimately tarnishing real science.
    The last huge experiment in authoritarian government had screwed the economy so badly that it prompted in the early 1600s a great reformation. Best followed in England’s history.
    With the work of Galileo and Kepler physics of the solar system was on a renaissance.
    Regrettably, another great experiment in authoritarian government has been intruding upon the economy, peace of mind and the advance of science. And it has been on for some 125 years.
    Fortunately, these popular uprisings seem like another attempt to reform a bureaucracy that is becoming more brutal by the minute. Democrats and their media really are the “jackboots” of the day.
    And with the developing political reform physics of the solar system is enjoying another renaissance.
    The work on cosmic rays and clouds by Svensmark and Shaviv is a profound step in science.
    Hey–solar minimum, cooling, clouds and precipitation, earthquakes and increasing volcanic activity–cosmic stuff seems to be working out.
    What a great time to be an observer!
    An essay from ten years ago, “Intellectual Hysteria” can be Googled or seen on my website.

    • GCSquared says:

      “And with the developing political reform physics of the solar system is enjoying another renaissance. The work on cosmic rays and clouds by Svensmark and Shaviv is a profound step in science.”

      A long-ignored elephant in the room has been that weather correlates with sunspots. Yet, it is also true that actual TSI (total solar irradiance) varies very little. Anyone with the slightest shred of scientific curiosity would be annoyed to distraction by this apparent paradox. But climate modellers invoked the second point to incuriously deny the first.

      When Svensmark proposed his solar magnetism/cosmic ray/nucleation idea, instead of expressing a collective “Aha!”, alarmist modellers reacted with vitriole. That clearly exposes how counterfeit are their scientific credentials, and demonstrates how deeply our institutions have been corrupted.

    “For the first time, all the key players recount the events…” So, only took ’em 10 years to come up with a version. I wonder if “telling the truth” would have taken less time, if it ever occurred to them.

    • Gator says:

      Let’s correct that statement.

      “For the first time, all the accused recount the events…”

      What do they accused almost always do?

      I’m absolutely, 100 percent, not guilty.

    Michael Mann – “I Am Not A Crook”
    Exactly what Richard Nixon said before he resigned to forestall impeachment.
    As far as I’m concerned PhD stands for: Perfidious Highbrow Dickhead. Until proven otherwise.

  8. John Edmondson says:

    If it’s on the BBC it won’t be worth watching. They are full on communists.

    Even Sky News has bought into the “climate emergency” nonsense now. So we are left with no unbiased news coverage in the UK now.

    At least we have the internet, just imagine what the world would be like without that.

    • Andy says:

      “If it’s on the BBC it won’t be worth watching. They are full on communists.”

      LOL. I’m guessing you must be quite far right wing then….

      Andy

      • rah says:

        Amazing how many of us “far right wing” types there are around. The UK is full of them based on the Brexit referendum and so is them US based on the 2016 election results.

      • John Edmondson says:

        Thanks Andy, it depends on your definition of far right wing. If it means small government, low taxes and responsibilities before rights, then the entire population is more left wing than me. If you mean fascist , then no.

        • Andy says:

          “Thanks Andy, it depends on your definition of far right wing. If it means small government, low taxes and responsibilities before rights, then the entire population is more left wing than me. If you mean fascist , then no.”

          What has small government and low taxes got to do with the BBC reporting being “communistic” ?

          Pray tell…..

          You are really right wing aren’t you? Go on, fezz up.

          Anyone saying the BBC are communists ( presumably what the C stands for) is rather extreme to me.

          Persuade me otherwise as a liberal democrat …..

          • John Edmondson says:

            Andy, you asked me if I was “far right wing”. I think my answer was clear enough. To clarify left wing means more government spending and taxes and vice versa.
            The C in BBC does not stand for Communist, but the first B is commonly thought to stand for “Bolshevic”. If you think the BBC is unbiased, then that is your right.

          • Andy says:

            “The C in BBC does not stand for Communist, but the first B is commonly thought to stand for “Bolshevic””

            I rest my point .

            The BBC is probably less Communist or Bolshevik than John is a right wing nut job.

            The BBC are left of central. But not extreme like Breibart or Politico.

      • Gator says:

        No Andy Andy, it isn’t just the far right. It is everyone who is not part of the far left. I am a Libertarian, and I agree that the BBC is working (knowingly or not) towards full blown communism.

        PS – I am very likely more liberal than you.

        • rah says:

          Leftists always label anyone that does not agree with their agenda as “far right”. And now label the likes of Bloomberg and Buttigieg as “moderates”
          https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2019/11/08/all-moderates-cbs-cheers-centrists-bloomberg-biden-buttigieg

          Oh how I hope the fake injun Warren wins them democrat nomination. The entertainment value would be incomparable.

          • Andy says:

            “Leftists always label anyone that does not agree with their agenda as “far right”.”

            And vice versa, it was not me who labelled the BBC as COMMUNISTS!

            Which is a joke in itself. People think that new sources are biased only because they are biased in they are biased themselves. Someone left wing will not pick up CNN being biased, and people being right will not pick up Foxnews same.

            If they agree with your world view then they become less biased. Of course !
            This is blindingly obvious.

            Let’s see what they actually say on the program? You have all written it off already due to your bias of course….

            COUGH COUGH

            Andy

          • rah says:

            Well what you call them Andy? Has the BBC in it’s current form ever spoken ill of any socialist agenda or project? They’re a state owned media outlet funded by taxes. They are totally biased in their “reporting” and deny access and censor those who’s views do not agree with or effectively challenge the states agenda no matter what their credentials. And now even on their once great nature shows their bias has taken over and Sir David Attenborough has been exposed as a liar and deceiver. They may not quite be communist yet because on occasion they are rebuked for their “reporting” and the conduct of their executives but all indications are they aspire to be to the UK what Pravda was for the USSR.

          • rah says:

            Can’t tell the difference between a private person opinion and what is broadcast written by the media in “reporting news” day after day after day.
            Gag! Gag!

        • Andy says:

          “PS – I am very likely more liberal than you.”

          Centrist is more important than liberal or libertarian.

          Centrist you certainly are not. Shame.

          If I was Trump I would probably call you Little Gator, but I don’t stoop that low. Probably because it is over sizing you.

          Andy

          • Gator says:

            Funny that you think you are centrist. Funny and telling, as well as confirming my comment. Thanks Andy Andy, only you could have proven me absolutely correct.

          • rah says:

            Andy is clueless. Centrist is just another word for moderate. Those that try to walk the middle line to sound reasonable have no principles since they must sway too and fro with the changing political and social winds to remain in the center. One who stands for compromise on anything and everything stands for nothing!

  9. Andy says:

    This will be an interesting watch. I will reserve comment on it until I’ve seen it ( I am old fashioned like that …. )

  10. Kneel says:

    “No Andy Andy, it isn’t just the far right. It is everyone who is not part of the far left.”

    Yeah, time to turn it back on them – anyone who supports the AGW hoax should be labelled a “Soros shill”, an “alt-left thug”, a “neo-progressive collectivist” and so on.
    Turn about is fair play, init?

  11. Andy says:

    Some interesting thoughts above.

    This actually is a really good resume of that entire episode, hats off to the BBC for covering it again all these years later.

    I need to do some background reading on the subject to refresh my memory.

    Wasn’t the first post on this done on Watts up with that and it got ignored? They sent the link and then nothing happened. Then another link where it got picked up.

    It will be interesting to see if the BBC report that on their documentary.

    Andy

  12. rah says:

    Here in the states after the 2020 election we shall see who the radical extremists are based on their own criteria for applying such a label. My Trump 2020 flag goes up the pole under the Stars & Stripes Jan 1. when the election year starts. I can’t recall any US President receiving such a greeting as Trump did from the vast majority of a crow of 100,000 at the Alabama vrs LSU game yesterday. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/11/09/big-cheers-for-president-trump-and-melania-trump-in-alabama/
    That event and rally attendance highlights the lie to the what the democrat media pumps out constantly.

  13. MGJ says:

    Most people in the BBC would probably be shocked to be called Communists but that is not the point. It matters not whether we give them that label if they share many of the worst characteristics of the Communist/Fascist. (Fascism being just a working class variant, without all the posh intellectuals. Equally evil, just a smaller body count).

    Hatred of the free market – tick
    Hatred of individual liberty – tick
    Obsessed with race – tick
    Obsessed with the state – tick
    Spews propaganda constantly – tick
    Attacks, insults and denigrates anyone who disagrees – tick
    Pro censorship – tick
    Anti democracy – tick
    etc.
