Tom Fletcher BC (funny) demonstrates a couple of important issues in a recent tweet. Firstly he reminds us that he knows nothing about climate change (see index of examples above). Secondly he knows nothing about what the evidence tells us about actively supported climate change counter-movement (CCCM) disinformation campaigns in North America and around the world.
“In all, 140 foundations funneled $558 million to almost 100 climate denial organizations from 2003 to 2010” (see references below).
A vast amount of money (hundreds of millions of dollars in the USA) was spent in the decade up to 2010 specifically for purposefully misinforming the public on climate change science. Let's not even get started on the worthless source of Tom Fletcher's opinon (see tweet below).
We've seen that Tom Fletcher also values other worse than worthless sources of information about climate change. This is evidence that he cannot discriminate between sources of facts and sources of opinions. Does this inability to understand facts carry over into his reporting on other topics?
