Biased Broadcasting Corporation censors David Bellamy

Thanks to Tom Nelson. We all know that, despite protestations to the contrary, the BBC has made up its mind on climate change, having said in a report (note long PDF):
The BBC has held a high-level seminar with some of the best scientific experts, and has come to the view that the weight of evidence no longer justifies equal space being given to the opponents of the consensus.
So it is sadly little surprise that David Bellamy, one of the most recognisable naturalists and botanists in the UK, and whom I used to watch without fail on TV when I was a kid, has been shunned for over 10 years by the BBC because of his views on climate change, as the UK Daily Mail reports:
People such as former American Vice-President Al Gore say that millions of us will die because of global warming – which I think is a pretty stupid thing to say if you’ve got no proof.
And my opinion is that there is absolutely no proof that carbon dioxide is anything to do with any impending catastrophe. The science has, quite simply, gone awry. In fact, it’s not even science any more, it’s anti-science.
There’s no proof, it’s just projections and if you look at the models people such as Gore use, you can see they cherry pick the ones that support their beliefs.
To date, the way the so-called Greens and the BBC, the Royal Society and even our political parties have handled this smacks of McCarthyism at its worst.
Global warming is part of a natural cycle and there’s nothing we can actually do to stop these cycles. The world is now facing spending a vast amount of money in tax to try to solve a problem that doesn’t actually exist.
Right on the money. Read it here.
