Discussion > 28Gate : nothing changed or did it?

The BBC Sci/Environment website section was, as usual, full of alarmist stories or climate porn if you like during "Do Ha Ha" (thanks Josh). Just as it is whenever there's a climate freebie taking place somewhere.
Most-peculiarly, the story of "an agreement" at the end of the conference even briefly made the front page as top story on Friday/Saturday I believe. It was nicely centred at right at the top of the news home page.

So at first glance one could suggest that nothing had changed. And it could be fair to say that 28Gate had no impact whatsoever on BBC output...
However, as Do Ha Ha is history and there's nothing left behind to show for it but fading contrails and a few hundred extra tons of 'carbon'- *all* the BBC Climate porn has now gone. Not a single alarmist yarn on the Sci/Environment sub-site. Not even the 'hysterical [sic] agreement' story is present.

Strange, eh?

The BBC seems to go through cycles of this. I suspect they used up all their alarming stories in the run-up to Doha, they were thick and fast in the last couple of weeks. I doubt the dearth of them now has anything to do with 28gate. Even the Savile story has fallen off the BBC's view of the world.
