Following in the foot steps of the Sunday Timesretraction of their bogus Jonathan Leake story, the BBC has apologized for falsely stating that UEA researchers had “distorted the debate about global warming to make the threat seem even more serious than they believed it to be”. The BBC offers the excuse “that this was a live programme being put together under the pressure of events”, which is fair enough, except that it has taken over nine months to make this simple correction, for which, surely, there is no excuse.

Hat tip: BCL.

    101 Tim,

    This Kent does not read like the other Kent/Nasif. Are they the same IP?
