Peter Lilley MP accuses BBC of systematic bias in its handling of climate change evidence
Lord Lawson the chairman of the global warming policy foundation (GWPF) has written to Lord Patten, the chairman of the BBC Trust, to personally investigate a complaint by Peter Lilley MP regarding the BBC`s systematic bias in its approach to climate change. In his letter to the BBC Lilley writes "the BBC cannot credibly suppress the views of those who think the IPCC(Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change) too alarmist while promoting those who think it too cautious" . Lord Lawson is calling on the BBC Trust to address the wider problem " namely the case for the BBC to migrate from its present one sided reportage and propaganda on climate change and climate change policies to a more balanced and objective coverage of this complex and important range of issues"
