TCW’s hot topic: BBC’s world according to St Greta


THE BBC has announced that it is to make a series following 17-year-old Greta Thunberg as she campaigns about climate change around the world. 

Its press release gushes: ‘As she travels Greta meets not only leading scientists but political leaders and business heavyweights, exploring the scientific evidence with them and challenging them to change.

‘The films will also charts [sic] her own journey into adulthood as she continues to be confronted by the real world consequences of inaction; and will share some of the quiet moments as she writes the impactful speeches that are now broadcast and analysed around the world, as she lives a teenage life like no other.’

Predictably, it adds: ‘Scientists across the world agree that global temperature rise needs to be limited to 1.5 degrees . . . a chorus of these experts will lay out the science that lies beneath this unambiguous statement.’ A must watch, then.

No mention is made of the carbon footprint that will be generated by the slavish coverage.

If the BBC were to fulfil its legal duty to be balanced and impartial, it would give exactly the same amount of air time to those who dispute the selective science that the BBC unquestioningly promotes. However a diktat was issued long ago forbidding any attempt at balance. 

How should we make it clear to the BBC that not everyone loves Greta? Discuss!
