Professional Warmist wants anyone who mentions climate skepticism fired from the BBC

Bob Ward works for the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at  the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

The BBC's decision to part company with the Met Office has provoked a great deal of comment over the weekend (and a cartoon or two as well). Returning to my desk this morning I expected that the story would have run out of legs, but it has just been given a new lease of life via the [BBC] Today programme.

I've attached the audio file below. Justin Webb was discussing possible reasons for the the BBC's decision and he mentioned that some people had suggested that this might have something to do with the Met Office's stance on climate change. Given that the BBC is now arguably rather more alarmist than the Met Office, however, this seems somewhat counterintuitive.

To be fair it was just a throwaway comment, the aural equivalent of clickbait, and at least one bottom feeder has swallowed it whole.

Stand back and admire, gentle readers, the majesty of a public-funded bureaucrat demanding that a public-funded journalist lose his job because he merely mentioned the existence of views that the bureaucrat found distasteful. What a shameful place the London School of Economics has become.

Maybe if the Globe would Warm, the Alarmists could make a case for "Global Warming."

BTW - All CO2 can do is WARM the atmosphere. If Warming isn't the problem, then CO2 isn't the answer! ;-)

"Bob Ward works for.."

He "works"..? Aww.. c'mon..
He mentioned sceptics first so why doesn't he take his own advice, the snivelling hypocritical coward?
