BBC – a hotbed of denial?

Sunny Hundal in The Guardian thinks that Newsnight is evidence that the BBC "has become this country's most pernicious climate-change-denying media outlet in the UK."

The hook for last night's Newsnight report, he writes, was today's Guardian reporting that the IPCC head Dr Rajendra Pachauri rightly refusing to apologise for a mistake that wasn't made under his watch.

Eh? This is the man who accepted the Nobel prize on behalf of the IPCC, on the basis of AR4 ... which contains the "mistake", that wasn't made under his watch?

Much more of this and David Cameron will be signing him on as a climate change advisor. With that degree of intellectual coherence, he and Osborne should be soul mates.
