You see I was trying to let them know about UKIP's response to the devastating John Muir Trust study just published, into the uselessness of Wind Farms.
The chap at the other end of the line let me know that BBC Scotland had already reported on the study (here) . And is was obvious that he wasn't happy with the tone of the report, you see it wasnt critical enough,
"It is obviously wrong that the BBC produce reports without looking into the methodology of the study," he told me, displaying that Reithian responsibility the BBC is so famous for, "We must look beyond the headlines of the executive summary, before producing our own reports".Yes indeed that is exactly what you should do. As I pointed out to him, it would be nice if the BBC did the same with reports predicting the demise of human civilisation through the dire effects of Climate change.
So I suggest that people should start holding the Science and Environment department to this fine new approach to studies on climate change and renewable technology.
