ManBearPig, Climategate and Watermelons: A Conversation with James Delingpole

James Delingpole is a bestselling British author and blogger who helped expose the Climategate scandal back in 2009. Reason.tv caught up with Delingpole in Los Angeles recently to learn more about his entertaining and provocative new book Watermelons: The Green Movement’s True Colors. At its very roots, argues Delingpole, climate change is an ideological battle, not a scientific one. In other words, it’s green on the outside and red on the inside. At the end of the day, according to Delingpole, the “watermelons” of the modern environmental movement do not want to save the world. They want to rule it.

  1. Gordon says:5th October 2011 at 10:09 ammanbearpig, watermelons and climategate are about the only three words delingpole can manage. words like positive feedback, interglacial cycles, thermodynamics etc will utterly confuse this man who doesn’t do science.
    1. Holly Bromley says:24th October 2011 at 5:36 pmYour argument is proof that you have not read his book. Give it a read then come back and make an intelligent argument.
  2. Drew Spencer says:6th October 2011 at 3:25 pmAhh the same old “he doesn’t do science” argument. James is an established ‘journalist’. You can’t even find the shift key, mate.
  3. Gordonrear says:10th October 2011 at 1:58 amOK, an established mickey mouse journalist (blogger) who doesn’t do science or objective truth whose vocabulary is limited to manbearpig, watermelon and climategate. Happy mate?
  4. John Fourie says:20th October 2011 at 11:13 pmJust came to your website to say that you are the lowest form of life. Lying and over exaggerating without even understanding the basics. Dont read anything this man says people he only wants you to go to his website to get some click, he is what we call an internet troll and does not deserve a second of your time. Please die so that the world can be a better place.
  5. JB says:25th October 2011 at 9:42 amJames does exactly what he condemns in this video, he distorts evidence. I don’t feel he’s interested in open debate unless it furthers his career. If you read his articles he’s more than happy to skew information, to suit his own agenda. Even if it could be proved 100% that global warming was manmade, he would still deny it. As pretty much is whole career is based discrediting everything, and anything that could be related to and with global warming.Such as writing over emotional arguments based almost entirely on his view that wind farms are vulgar. And according to him have a negative impact on the environment where he takes his country walks. He only seems concerned about the environment if it affects him personally;

    James and his followers have their heads stuck in the sand, resist and don’t want to accept change. Regardless of which team regarding global warming you are on. The fact is fossil fuels are a finite resource that is becoming more and more expensive to produce. Why not then invest in new technologies that make use of abundant energy sources such as sun, wind, wave etc. Not necessarily to save the planet, but to create jobs and new industries.
