Flashback - David Bellamy: 'BBC axed me for rubbishing global warming'

BROADCASTER David Bellamy told yesterday how his television career was cut short by the BBC after he dismissed climate change.

The botanist and environmental campaigner said his scepticism over manmade global warming signalled an end to his screen presence.

Furthermore, all other work dried up, he was shunned by colleagues and vilified by green zealots.

Professor Bellamy said: “Someone even emailed me to say I was ‘the worst paedophile in the world’, basically saying I was killing children by denying global warming.”

Until then, television had appeared to be Bellamy’s natural habitat and he was one of the best-known faces in Britain.
