UK's Channel 4 Green War

In reaction to the Ofcom ruling today on the Great Global Warming Swindle shock-u-mentary, Guardian columnist George Monbiot asks: “Why does Channel 4 seem to be waging a war against the greens?”

Monbiot writes:

The Great Global Warming Swindle is part of a long-standing pattern. Channel 4 upsets all sorts of people, and it has every right to do so. On all other issues it appears to do so in a random fashion, sometimes attacking people on one side of the debate, sometimes on the other. But one polemical position has kept recurring over the past 18 years: a fierce antagonism towards environmentalism.”
