Climate Wars - the discussion continues elsewhere
BBC "Climate Wars" ｫ Climate Audit go and join the discussion:
The BBC describes the series as "The Climate Wars, geologist Dr Iain Stewart (Earth – The Power Of The Planet) presents a definitive guide to the history of climate change."
Definitive to me suggests some impartiality - but as I have linked elsewhere Dr Stewart is an activist, with an agenda. He finished the second programme saying how the third programme will show how our freedoms need to be curtailed. And in the BBC article above he finishes with:
Blaming scientific uncertainty is now not an option to delay action. Sure, actions by individuals can make a difference, but real progress will only come when individuals come together with a strong, common voice to demand that rhetoric turns into regulation. And that's where I see my role – in convincing ordinary folk that this is an issue that they should care about, not because it will affect them but, more insidiously, it will be their legacy to their kids and grandkids.
I think we can see how the series is building up to be a polemic demanding regulation rather than as any sort of definitive history.
