Sir David Attenborough accused of global-warming bias

   Nov 30, 3:40 pm

London, Nov 30(ANI): British Conservative politician and journalist Nigel Lawson has accused broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough of 'sensationalism' as he focuses on the effects of global warming on the Polar regions in his natural history series, Frozen Planet.

Attenborough is expected to suggest the Arctic could be free of ice by 2020 in the final episode of Frozen Planet, which is to be broadcast next Wednesday.

In a piece written for the Radio Times, Lawson said: " Sir David Attenborough is one of our finest journalists and a great expert on animal life. Unfortunately, however, when it comes to global warming, he seems to prefer sensation to objectivity."

"Had he wished to be objective, he would have pointed out that, while satellite observations confirm that the extent of Arctic sea ice has been declining over the past 30 years, those satellite observations show that overall, Antarctic sea ice has been expanding over the same period," he added.
