Certain Reservations


Martin Durkin, the anti-environmentalist film-maker, Bolshevist firebrand, and unrepentant goat-fucker who made The Great Global Warming Swindle, has been censured for "misrepresenting" the views of scientists who accept the reality of AGW.

This is OK, though, because these misrepresentations did not "mislead" the public.

Following a 15-month investigation, Ofcom yesterday found that The Great Global Warming Swindle broke its guidelines on impartiality in the concluding part of the 90-minute polemic, which claimed man-made global warming was a conspiracy and a fraud. But despite "certain reservations" on the part of the regulator, Channel 4 was "on balance" cleared of "materially misleading the audience so as to cause harm or offence".
In other words, the film became impartial when it set forth the assertion that's contained in its title. It's one of those little missteps that sometimes occur despite the best intentions in the world.

When asked for his comments on the ruling, Martin Durkin said this:
If I could get angry at you, I would try to kill every one of you. If that's guilt, I accept it....I'm probably one of the most dangerous men in the world if I want to be.
It would be hilarious, actually, if it weren't so sad.

"Goat-fucker" -- hysterical. Stuff like this never gets old.

You're really making a difference. Keep up the good work.

Charles Manson-- that's gold! He's Hitler and Manson and Godzilla, in a triple feature sponsored by Texaco . What a bad person.

By the way, this is a great way to resolve a scientific dispute: complain to the broadcasting regulator (sorry, no scientists, only Labour peers.) You will respect mah authoritah!

It's not quite as clever as accusing hundreds of scientists of being cultists, opportunists, commies, and liars, and it's certainly not as fresh and novel. But then, I never claimed to be an artist.

You're really making a difference. Keep up the good work.

Aye-aye, Cap'n!

I may've misrepresented what Durkin said, I'll grant you that. But at least I didn't mislead anyone!

Is that really what you think was happening there? Fascinating.

As ever, your concern is noted.

Entirely beside the point, I know, but what does the 'A' stand for in 'AGW'. Advanced? Asinine? Awesome? Asstilian? Arguable? Antediluvian? Acceptable? Archaic? Average? Ancillary? Adjusted? Anticipated? Ametricfuckloadof?

The way I see it, there is this natural process called dodosynthesis that took place over a very long time, like hundreds of millions of years starting in the Carboniferous period. Well, to make a long story short, all that See-Oh-Two that was in the air somehow ended up underground, and the climate changed from hot and tropical to seasonal, and as the Earth cooled, icecaps formed.

But then along comes these screaming monkeys who dig up this stuff, burn it for trinkets and marshmallows, and put that See-Oh-Two back into the air. Then what? The Earth starts warming again, the icecaps melt, and those screaming monkeys say: “Huh? Party pooper! ”

It took only twelve generations of screaming monkeys to release what Earth had buried over hundreds of millions of years, which only proves that dodosynthesis has been happening for a very long time.

Anthropogenic.

Just remembered that I've told you several times to use a consistent 'nym, or get lost.

I won't say it again.

Phila, I recently discovered - after a 'sexy' attack - that you can tweak the comment parameters so that, for instance, comments on posts older than a month (or whatever period you choose) must be approved before appearing on the blog. I swear, it is a very very useful thing to implement. (I think it's new-ish)
