Neven, yours is a very worthwhile blog and I’ve learned a great deal from it. My post was largely in response to Abbotisgone’s comment re. media being unhelpful. CC Deniers just don’t appear on the Beeb, though they can be found in our broadsheets and tabloids – the Telegraph, Daily Mail. For the reasons in my OP above, the BBC is a trusted, near-neutral, source of news and they have to be careful to maintain this. Hence the ref to the ESA, which will be known to readers. From my point of view, being right about the progress and likely future effects of CChange is not enough. Only if the electorate is aware can they influence the elected. In that wider sense, the BBC is helping the cause. Iain

The UK BBC has picked up on it today: Interesting times for Auntie Beeb. It's as free of political and commercial interest as is practical to be. UK govts don't like it, as they are asked all the hard questions. UK opposition parties do like it as they get a platform. The Licence fee system is under threat, and BBC is to end it's contract for weather forecasting with the Met Office, which has been vocal in warning of Climate change and it's effects. Iain
