Complaint to Ofcom Regarding The Great Global Warming Swindle

Appendix F: Some Factors to Consider when Setting the Penalty

Page 164



Mykura claims that The Great Global Warming Swindle was part of an environment season on Channel 4. This is incorrect: it was not announced on Channel 4 at any time that it was part of any series of related programmes. In spite of the detailed and well-referenced allegations of falsifications of facts that Mykura received from Monbiot, Mykura justifies the programme simply by stating that the Channel 4 programme is polemical and that it was intended to start a debate.
