BBC fires radio host for questioning the theory of global warming

Global warming
(NaturalNews) There are so many questions surrounding the theory of global warming. Every square mile of the Earth's surface is changing in temperature, up and down, hour by hour. In all practicality, it's impossible to measure and declare that the collective Earth is perpetually heating up. Global warming cannot be proved as concise science based on regional temperature data taken at one specific time, while comparing the data to nonexistent temperature readings of millenniums past. Everything about the planet – from the layers of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans – is ever changing, adapting, adjusting.

So why would a radio host be fired for asking questions about a theory that we may never be able to accurately measure?

That's exactly what happened at the BBC. Radio host Quentin Letts was terminated after he creatively questioned the premise of global warming and the religious Leftist agenda behind it. Writing in a recent Daily Mail column, Letts describes how he was "vaporised by the BBC's Green Gestapo" after he dared to challenge the theory of global warming. On his Radio 4 program, What's The Point of? Letts interviewed global warming skeptics with fresh perspective in a unique, half-hour broadcast.

Recently, the episode was removed from the BBC's iPlayer playback facility. The BBC Trust panicked under the forceful doctrine of global warming zealots and fired him for not being impartial. Letts describes the sudden onslaught of censorship as a "bizarre and focused lobbying campaign from environmental activists."

"The experience was baffling rather than upsetting," said Letts. "The programme had only ever been intended as a light summer diversion, yet it was mistaken for some sort of attack on the Establishment's global warming theory."

The quirky, half-hour shows give viewers a unique perspective on some of Britain's most trusted institutions, questioning prevailing thought. "In these programmes I try to reflect both admiration for the institution under analysis and any grumbles that may exist about it," says Letts, who is astonished by the sudden censorship of his views.

Letts now feels compelled to speak out about the Left's "worrying rise of intolerance," which is turning untested theories into orthodoxy by using censorship and force.

"I am writing about it now simply because the media story in which I have unwittingly found myself reflects a worrying rise of intolerance in our public life," Lett's states, "and because the response of BBC executives and the BBC Trust, the governing body responsible for acting in the interests of licence fee-payers, has been so astonishingly over the top.

"The rumpus, ignited by a few eco-activists and fuelled by a mad BBC bureaucracy, has demonstrated the sort of foot-stamping insistence on orthodoxy not seen during peacetime since Oliver Cromwell's Commonwealth in the 17th century."

"I don't consider myself a climate change sceptic," Letts says. "Like, I suspect, the majority of the population, I don't know what to think about global warming."

Letts said he received a long document from the BBC Trust, condemning him for a "serious" breach of BBC rules. "I was accused of having shown disrespect to climate change." Letts said. The BBC Trust said Letts was not impartial on his program (in other words, his creative perspective on global warming had offended its most ardent followers). The BBC Trust said that they had agreed before the program was launched, that Letts was never to bring up the subject of climate change.

Letts writes, "Er, hang on, chaps. No one ever told me that. Why on earth would independent journalists accept such a stricture? Why should climate change be given such special protection?" [Emphasis added]

And that's exactly what is happening. Some immeasurable theory is being turned into a religion that must be believed no matter what. It's these kinds of forceful, Orwellian tactics that make people more skeptical about the theory of global warming and any agenda that is behind it.
