BBC’s COP26 Propaganda

November 9, 2021

By Paul Homewood


Here’s a selection from the live reporting on COP26 today.

It is mostly just a load of BBC propaganda, much of it rehashed and already discredited, designed to scare the public, rather than inform.

I notice they are praising up Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as “young and progressive”. They omitted “far left”.

Sheer political campaigning!

    Show me the death certificates that say ……died from the heat.

    Even if true, the last thing we should do in response is make cooling equipment difficult for people to get. Whether the policy results in physical difficulties or economic, if avoiding a concerning number of heat deaths is the goal then cooling equipment is in order for everyone is in order.

      One recently submitted in Canada, from memory, with climate change noted as the cause of death by some nutty activist Doctor.

    I very occasionally look at the BBC “news” website. It is interesting how despite massive brainwash-articles on AGW, enough readers do not seem to look at these to put them in the most-read set. I do not remember such extensive, dishonest brainwashing during any previous issue.

    What are these people gibbering about?

    Even the IPCC concedes that and warming will be confined to the hemispheres leaving equatorial regions virtually untouched.

    The subtlety of that, which is almost universally overlooked, is that cold and warm air fronts from the hemispheres and the equator meeting in the mid Atlantic/Pacific will have less of a temperature difference, therefore ‘extreme’ weather like hurricanes will be weaker.

    What are these people smoking? This is straightforward, 1970’s ‘O’ level Geography.

    The BBC will not provide a true story.Rather than warning ix about true perils they just record catastrophes.
    Factors outside our influence happen :-

    The Lancet report of 2015 showed heat deaths to be a tiny fraction of those from cold.

    Arrant lies.

      They probably missed these words from the end of their report: “during the Summer”.

      Indeed yes , but since 2015 Lancet have had Christianna Figueres , well known climate activist , as chair of something called Lancet Countdown to monitor progress of the Paris agreement, so obviously editorial policy will have changed .

      And all of those amongst the elderly ill-provided with ventilation, cooling etc.

      • November 10, 2021 10:57 am

        Not just ill-provided, but soon unaffordable.

    Brendan O’Neill (Spiked-on-line) covers very well what is going on. We are all being manipulated (or nudged) by repeated brainwashing.

    Truth does not matter any more to the MSM. they are part of the problem, and increasingly, part of government.

    Government (via. the Cabinet Office funded Behavioural Insights Team), are feeding their desired outcomes into all media, demonstrating what we are allowed to know and the opinions we should hold for the benefit of their world view.

    There will be no debates, no alternative views, you WILL comply or be de-platformed, called a denier or a racist by those who rather enjoy the ‘power’ they now feel they have.

    Read this; ensuring no breakable objects are within reach. Screaming optional.

    The warmer climate is better for people, because more people die from the cold. a 2 degree rise in temperature would take the climate average for the whole planet from 15 to 17*C not much difference.

    Funny how the MetOffice show most of Africa as ‘red’ when there’s hardly any temperature stations in the continent. If there’s no stations, you can’t predict any impacts. Of course, the main impact to them is the World Bank’s prevention of / refusal to fund any reliable, i.e. coal/gas electricity generating projects.

    The BBC were in financial difficulties a while back and isn’t it strange that it’s now all gone quiet on that front, while the BBC has for sure ended up as the mouthpiece of a corrupt government. And I thought that we were living in a democracy…

    The average annual temperature between say Calfornia (hot) and Finland (cool) is significantly more than 1,5 degrees but the population in both manage just fine as they adapt to the different climate. The comparison can be done between 100s of different areas worldwide where life goes on,
    In desperation the eco-loons are clinging on to any bad weather report across the globe as evidence of the Climate Crisis. Why on earth would flooding in Germany or a forest fire in Australia prove global climate change anymore than the flooding on the Somerset levels years ago, the Great Storm in southern England in 1987………….prove we are in a Climate Change Crisis?
    Mankind has always adapted to the climate and will continue to do so. In the UK we dress differently in the summer than in winter it is generally colder in Scotland than it is in Cornwall……….. where is this climate emergency?
    What is truly worrying is that so many people can be brainwashed so easily by a political/business elite who are simply patronising them and have no intention of wrecking the economy on the altar of CC.
    The eco-loons are a prime example of jumping on a populist bandwagon aided and abetted by the BBC/MSMt. They are the useful idiots, akin to the 1950s/60s Ban the Bomb brigade, of the 21st century with the same message of ” we are all doomed” aimed at the young.

      Yes they show temperatures in Chicago becoming life threatening but only reaching what Phoenix is today.

      It’s utterly absurd.

    2C? That’s nothing. The temperature rose 11C where I was this morning, in only 4 hours, never mind in 150 years. And, all I had to do to make myself cozy was to take a fleece off. I wonder how humanity managed to scrape through the Holocene Climate Optimum and the Minoan, Roman and Medieval warming periods, all toastier than the Modern Warming, without wetting the bed? They adapted, that’s why, and that’s ecactly how any grown ups should deal with any inconvenient weather events that come to pass. After all, with the aid of fossil fuels, we have never had better means to insulate ourselves from the worst of what the elements can throw at us. Any doomster forecasts to the contrary are just activist bulls**t. Let me know when a meteor the size of Luxembourg is on a direct path to earth, Yellowstone finally lets rip, or the next glaciation starts, then I might start to worry. But a little benign warming? Nope, grateful not worried in the slightest.

        My virtue signalling sister called me a Neanderthal when I pointed out some flaws in her magical thinking.

        If she ever reads Chaswarnertoo, I guess she’ll start calling me a hippo.

        I don’t really mind.

        Martin, remind her that in the heyday of Neanderthals during the Eemian, temperatures in Western Europe were 2 degrees warmer than now.

    Judging by the BBC articles there is now a trend to assusme a 4 Celsius rise in temperature will happen very soon – 2030? 2050? End of the century? Add to that a belief that ice sheets will melt overnight and swamp low lying land within a couple of decades. Mix in a cute/pathetic/oppressed personal account of facing climate armageddon – their nauseous output displays staggering ignorance of reality – and by the way Landkreis Burgenland, new home according to the BBC of the West Nile Virus, is in Austria, not Germany. I rest my case.

      Ssshh, don’t tell them that Antarctica is actually cooling, it would cause their brains to blow a fuse…

      All totalitarian movements though out history have described themselves as ‘progressive’. The NAZIs, Mussolini, Communists everywhere. The Progressive Party in the US before WW2 was the American Fascist Party.

      When I hear any political party claiming to be progressive, I look for the fascism.

        Yes we rarely if ever “progess” to a smaller state with more individual freedom.

    • November 10, 2021 8:39 pm

      Which in turn is euphemese for both christian national socialism and communism so as to exclude libertarians from “both” dementions.

    Climate Change and Covid are all part of an evil international experiment to see just how gullible and accepting the general public can be. The forces behind this must be chuckling among themselves in disbelief at how they appear to be getting away with it. BUT will this house of cards collapse soon? – It’s our only hope.

    Major heatwaves are discretely solar driven and are a cause and not an impact of climate change. The heatwaves of 1934, 1949, 1976, 2003, and 2018, all occurred during the same type of Jovian T-square of Jupiter opposite Uranus and roughly square to Saturn. The all time greatest heatwaves of 1361, 1540, 1757, 1936 (US), and 2006, all occurred during the Jovian T-square of Saturn opposite Neptune and roughly square to Jupiter.
    If greenhouse gases increase their frequency, I will eat my hat.

    And now there is an insertion in the Sports Web pages about how “Climate Change” will adversely affect sports clubs – you couldn’t make it up!!!!

    • November 10, 2021 10:55 am

      And yet they wanted to hold the football World Cup in one of the hottest countries there is??!!

      You are correct, you cannot make this up, except they obviously are, and need to be called out and reported for it.

    32 degrees is “extreme risk”?

    Thats just farcical.

  18. November 10, 2021 8:42 pm

    Energy, the capacity to do work and produce wealth, is anathema to looter socialism. They cannot brainwash or conquer voluntary productive workers and technology–but not for lack of trying.
