BBC boss claims climate change no longer ‘politically controversial issue’

Maybe not for most paid politicians, but among the population at large there’s plenty of controversy. But the BBC won’t air the public’s views any more, unless favourable to its own alarmist climate propaganda. The media plan is to produce more ‘climate change storytelling’, which sounds like another good reason to not switch them on, or switch off.

The director-general of the BBC has said climate change is no longer a ‘politically controversial’ issue, reports the Daily Mail (via msn.com).

Tim Davie made the comment while speaking as part of a panel that coincided with Cop26.

He said: ‘The overwhelming consensus is that we, as humanity, are causing global warming. There are voices on the fringes but, in my view, when it comes to due impartiality for the BBC, we are now at a point where we have consensus around that.

‘But then you do get into political debate around policy, speed of change, the social consequences – there is tough stuff to debate and we will do that as the BBC.’

It follows 12 of the UK’s major media brands agreeing to increase the amount and improve the quality of their climate change storytelling across drama, comedy and daytime programming.

And Davie added that the pledge to increase climate change coverage does not impact on the BBC’s impartiality.

His comments came as media chiefs also warned broadcasters face becoming irrelevant to audiences if they fail to act on climate change.

Senior figures from the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, Sky and STV urged their competitors to create more content reflecting the realities of climate change during a panel coinciding with Cop26.
