Another voice frozen out of the public square

Another example of a voice frozen out of the public square for dissenting from the liberal agenda is that of David Bellamy who criticised global warming. His work for the BBC dried up in 2004 after calling global warming 'poppycock'. Whether he is right is not the issue here. The issue is whether there is room for dissenting voices in the modern world, or must they always be silenced? The BBC froze me out because I don't believe in global warming: Outspoken as ever, David Bellamy reveals why you don't see him on TV any more
The Daily Mail also comments on the success of David Attenborough who is very much an establishment figure. ... meanwhile, the man who's never OFF the telly says 'curb population or nature will do it for us': Wildlife legend Sir David warns that mankind is a 'plague on the Earth' Attenborugh urges the world to curb the global population growth because it is, he believes, unsustainable. Of course there is a limit to how many people the earth can hold, but as the same time we can recognise that God wishes to fill the earth with people, and that ultimately he will provide. But population growth slows as communities become wealthier. The way to decrease population growth is to respect others and share the world's resources around more fairly, together with good education for all where we recognise our collective responsibility to one another and to care for the world.
