VoW: Global Warming "Skeptic" Comes Clean

Further discrediting global warming "skeptics", this week's video is a BBC segment documenting the Bush administration's campaign of censoring global warming scientists and altering their reports fit with his agenda.

Included in the opener is an interview with Frank Luntz, Republican spin doctor and author of their propaganda script on global warming. In his now famous memo Luntz advised the Republican's to play up the uncertainty surrounding global warming science in order to win over voters. Now, in this BBC interview, Luntz tells says he now accepts the scientific consensus on climate change.

"It's now 2006. I think most people would conclude that there is global warming taking place and that the behavior of humans are (sic) affecting the climate."

BBC: "But the administration has continued taking your advice. They're still questioning the science."

Luntz: "That's up to the administration. I'm not the administration. What they want to do is their business. It has nothing to do with what I write. It has nothing to do with what I believe."

Here is that BBC program.

Luntz is a spin doctor not a climatologist. His opinion on global warming is neither here nor there.
