Discussion > The sad demise of BBCRBlack

I'm sure we were all saddened by the sudden shock departure of BBC climate comedian Richard Black.

I think his unbiased and entertaining reports will be missed by all. Would it be rude to speculate if he was encouraged to go and play the activist elsewhere after the Heartland debacle. If you remember, he was a tad too keen to publish the scandal that a sceptical lobby group was planning to er. lobby from a sceptical viewpoint with a huge budget of THOUSANDS and ended up with egg on his face after it emerged that the warmist Peter Gleick had seemingly committed a federal crime to obtain some documents using a false identity and had even allegedly forged a further paper.

Here was his hilarious first report and oh boy did he get slaughtered in the comments :)

Goodbye Dick, you will be missed.

That "someone" was Gleick himself.

:) LOL

The truth will always out. Black was most-likely a 'friend of Gleick' too.

Is it coincidental that the BBC Director-General is leaving too?

Well there isn't an advert for a vacancy on the BBC careers site yet, so could it be they've already selected the new warmist, who as I type is probably 'warming up' to take over the crumbling empire that Dick leaves behind?

I think we should be told!
