Climate change denier James Delingpole doesn't read or understand the evidence

James Delingpole is a darling of the climate change denial movement. He is responsible for breaking the original "climategate" controversy (see it debunked here: http://www.lukesci.com/topics/climate-science/climategate-1-2/), a perfect example of ignorance and cherry picking.

This video is a reposting (original is here: http://youtu.be/36Xu3SQcIE0). It shows an excerpt from a 2011 BBC documentary called Science Under Attack, hosted by Royal Society president and Nobel Prize winner Paul Nurse.

This is the section of the programme featuring UK sceptic James Delingpole, who complained on his blog that this interview amounted to 'intellectual rape', principally because it made crystal clear his ignorance about the evidence and how science works altogether.
