    FOR YEARS David Bellamy was one of the best known faces on TV.

    A respected botanist and the author of 35 books, he had presented around 400 programmes over the years and was appreciated by audiences for his boundless enthusiasm.

    Yet for more than 10 years he has been out of the limelight, shunned by bosses at the BBC where he made his name, as well as fellow scientists and environmentalists.

    His crime? Bellamy says he doesn’t believe in man-made global warming.

    Here he reveals why – and the price he has paid for not toeing the orthodox line on climate change.

    Nothing new here. As my father use to say to me back in the40's and 50's, The one group that does not agree with you are called broad minded and they say that is good, but to disagree or differ with them you lack education or you have your mind made up and won't listen. In other word you have to agree with them, because they are correct and you don't know anything, just ask them and they will tell you.

    In 2002, this is what David Bellamy had to say about why his television career went down the tubes.

    Here is a recent article on BBC Wear outlining Bellamy's views on global warming.

    The second comment following the article on the cited page sums up the "debate" quite nicely.

    The BBC are climate change obsessives, so its no surprise. Their approach seems to be to take a line on a particular cause or subject and then drown out all opposing argument.
