BBC Pensions Tied to Climate Policy

Curious why certain media outlets refuse to entertain contrarian views on climatology and global warming theory? The same reason that many scientists and politicians must intensely resist the exposure of global warming as a hoax. Untarnished professional reputations among scientists mean continued climate research grants. Certain politicians stand to lose elections and power if global warming is debunked.

The media? Well, here you go. When a media organization's retirement pension is invested in global warming, one must ask whether reporting will be entirely unbiased?
