NO CLIMATE SCIENCE TV PROG IN THE UK IN PAST YEAR

This article explains that there has been no full length factual programme on UK TV on climate science in the past year. The article then goes on to give reasons why this is the case. Tellingly it then says - "Instead, creative ways need to be found of 'smuggling in' the issues".

I think the sort of 'smuggling in' they were referring to was the throw away remark made on my local news programme this week, when an item about volcanic ash clouds was being shown. The presenter stated that due to climate change we should expect more volcanic eruptions. So now climate change is responsible for geological changes! They simply made it up and smuggled it in.
