MP's ASK, " WHY IS THE PUBLIC BECOMING DISENGAGED WITH THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE?"

This is the issue being looked at by the UK Parliament's Science and Technology Select Committee. Here is a link to a video of the Committee taking evidence from a group of concerned "experts" in engaging with the media. I must warn you that the session is about an hour long and not exactly riveting stuff, but if you have the dogged determination to view it, then like me, you may find it a kind of surreal experience. None of the speakers or the MP's gave any hint that they might be sceptical of any aspect of the climate debate, even though at least one does have some. What was discussed was what was "going wrong" with the way climate science is being reported and how can we make sure that people have a "better" understanding. The problem for these politicians is that most of them seem to have been brain-washed and are unable to take a step back and look objectively at the issue. They need to engage with the sceptics and only then would they learn that what is wrong with their "message" is that it is inaccurate and out of date.
