the motorway last night I caught Radio 4’s latest Analysis programme,
and I nearly drove off the M4. For a minute I thought I’d tuned in to a
pirate broadcast byRadio Free
Delingpole. It was presented by Justin Rowlatt, the guy you may
remember as the BBC’s Ethical Man, who used to pop up on Newsnight
agonising about making his wife wear plastic shoes or the price of a
family holiday in a cardboard box under the Shepherd’s Bush flyover.
He’s supposed to be a front-line eco-warrior, or so I thought until I
heard his fascinating 30min look at the intolerance of the climate
change movement. Justin has lined up heaps of evidence that shows up
the hidden agenda of the green brigade, namely the destruction of
capitalism and the creation of some kind of socialist utopia. I haven’t
yet found a hands free way of taking a shorthand note at90mph70mph, so you’ll have to hear it
yourself. Annoyingly the Analysis website doesn’t appear to have been
updated since November, but hisEthical Man
sitehas it. Perhaps it
was inevitable that even the BBC would turn on the green lobby?
is his conclusion: “I don’t have a problem with people campaigning for
those other agendas for their vision of a better society. For me the
problem comes if the fear of the consequences of climate change is used
as cover to smuggle in other objectives for social and political
change. That’s because many people already have a sense that there’s
something suspicious about the campaign to tackle global warming; they
instinctively distrust the science and if they feel that the solutions
people are proposing are less to do with carbon than pushing through a
hidden agenda that will only serve to confirm their scepticism.”>>
