Professor David Bellamy OBE - Challenging Orthodoxy...
Challenging Orthodoxy... a career limiting move!
Professor David Bellamy OBE
“When I first stuck my head above the parapet to say I didn’t believe what we were being told about global warming, I had no idea what the consequences would be. I am a scientist and I have to follow the directions of science, but when I see that the truth is being covered up I have to voice my opinions…
“I’m still an environmentalist, I’m still a Green and I’m still campaigning to stop the destruction of the biodiversity of the world. But money will be wasted on trying to solve this global warming ‘problem’ that I would much rather was used for looking after the people of the world.”
David Bellamy, Daily Express, 5 November 2008
A respected botanist and the author of 45 books, David has presented over 400 television shows across the years, and was much appreciated by audiences for his boundless enthusiasm. However, for the last ten years he has been axed from our screens, ignored by series commissioners at the BBC where he made his name, as well as by fellow scientists and environmentalists.
His crimes? He began by expressing his criticism of wind farms on an episode of children’s television series Blue Peter in 1996.
Since then, he has also described the belief that global warming is man-made as “poppycock”. Almost daily, we all see and hear the official dogma trotted out; “The debate is over.
We are constantly told there is consensus amongst the scientific community that climate change is anthropomorphic.”… But is there?
