Yesterday’s Channel 4 programme – Great Global Warming Swindle – supposedly debunking global warming has got it all wrong. Now – I’m all for scepticism and testing out arguments properly. So just because nearly every reputable scientist in the field believes global warming is real and a major problem isn’t a reason to close our minds on the subject. But if you are going to question it, you really need to do better than recycle old arguments that have long since been debunked.
What did the show have then? New evidence? No. New arguments? No. Rather just the same old sensation-seeking half-stories that have been rolled out and debunked many times before. There’s a good summary of the details of all this at In The Green.
So sorry Channel 4 – you get an F for fail for that programme.
