The two David's.

David Bellamy has been talking to the Daily Mail and confirming what we all suspected. His regular slots on the BBC vanished when he questioned 'global warming'....

"He dismissed man-made global warming as ‘poppycock!"

"From that moment, I really wasn’t welcome at the BBC. They froze me out, because I don’t believe in global warming. My career dried up. I was thrown out of my own conservation groups and I got spat at in London "

And in 1996 he let rip against wind farms (‘because they don’t work’) during one of his regular appearances on Blue Peter: ‘That was the beginning really. From that moment, I was not welcome at the BBC.’

His former colleague Sir David Attenborough has had no such problems and is always on our tv screens. He thinks humans are a 'plague on the earth'.

"We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now,” he told the Radio Times. "

I'd be interested to read the full article in the Radio Times and see if Sir David mentions the transfer of food production to bio fuel production. Or the effect of perpetual wars forcing people off of their land and into refugee camps. Or the effect of GM crops forcing poor farmers to buy specialised fertilisers and seeds. Leaving them at the mercy of agribusiness.

Oh and I wonder if he has read the blog of his colleague at the BBC, Paul Hudson who wrote about the met office forecast of no global warming for 17 years and how they would have to re evaluate their data.

Fortunately for other countries they can decide whether or not to buy into Sir David's global warming myth. But we have no choice. If we want to watch tv then we will have to pay £146 a year tv tax for him to insult us.


  1. Bellamy was brought to 'fame' by looking at little creatures for kiddies tv which is his greatest and only achievement.

    O/T Had a lone Lesser Redpoll on my bird feeders at the weekend.

  2. hi cynical..attacking the man and not the ball ? Tsk tsk.

    Not seen that bird myself. I usually see a greater spotted woodpecker but there's been no sign so far this year.
    Just chaffinches, blue tits, great tits, coal tits, blackbirds, robins etc.
    Oh and a sparrow hawk that's always prowling above.

  3. No the BBC put him on a pedestal and then removed it for whatever reason they saw fit and Bellamy went back into obscurity from whence he came. He tried to capitalize on that brief venture but failed just like most mortals who seek fame for whatever reason.

  4. hi cynical..He's had 40 books published in botany, science and the environment. He wrote and presented 400 tv shows in a 30 year career ( stopped when he mentioned the global warming scam. ) Oh and he got an OBE.
    He doesn't need anyone putting him on a pedestal.

  5. Oh and he got an OBE.

    I don't think linking that and BBC 'stars' is advisable!
