Below we wish to share with our readers a fascinating a UK BBC radio debate yesterday about Climategate that caught our interest:
On the BBC iplayer, it is a recording of Thursday’s ‘The Gabby Logan Show’, a UK lunch time national talk radio show, (at 11:42 through 34:00) with Mike Hulme, Professor of Climate Change in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA), Richard North, journalist and skeptic and the BBC’s Roger Harrabin discuss UEA investigation and broader issues.
Of particular interest are Roger Harrabin’s contributions. You may recall that Mr. Harrabin has extended an offer to debate with skeptics.
Harrabin refers to his ongoing contacts with Anthony Watts at Watts Up With That and me, and he now concedes that the blogosphere has changed the climate debate entirely since Climategate. It is clear to me Mr. Harrabin has gone some way towards meeting my challenge that the mainstream media must be more inclusive of the well-informed Internet skeptic community. His comments are welcome but we shall see whether this will usher in greater objectivity in other more prominent areas of broadcasting from his paymasters at the much-maligned BBC.
