“Genesis 12:10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.”  Biased BBC contributor Alan notes how  the BBC rewrites history to produce a new narrative of Egypt and twists the facts so that a Muslim scholar can claim the credit and not the ‘White Europeans or Americans’ ….they then rewrite it all again 10 years later to surreptitiously feed us yet more climate change propaganda attempting to terrify and trick us into submissive acceptance of the new climate orthodoxy.

Here’s a little riddle.

In 2001 the BBC produced a programme, ‘Ancient Apocalypse ‘, about the end of the Egyptian ‘Old Kingdom.
In 2011 the BBC published a report on the same by the archaeologist who presented the 2001 film Professor Fekri Hassan
In 2012 the BBC produce another film….’Ancient Apocalypse\’ this time again with Fekri Hassan…only older.
The riddle is ….has the BBC been deceived and is the BBC using the programme for propaganda about climate change?

‘Ancient Apocalypse’ describes the end of the Egyptian Old Kingdom….and tells us of new archaeological discoveries of unimaginable horror from a time when government power crumbles, an advanced civilisation falls apart and Egypt is plunged into a Dark Age…the causes of which have mystified Egyptologists until now. That answer is drought….or as the BBC call it ‘catastrophic climate change’.

You begin to get an idea where this is going.

The BBC’s frontman is Professor Fekri Hassan whom the BBC claim has for 30 years looked for his own explanation for the collapse of the Old Kingdom. He has “always challenged orthodoxy…..The conventional wisdom is that the Kingdom fell after the death of the Pharoah leading to major political conflict for the succession’

The BBC tells us that the first evidence of something far more devastating than political unrest came in 1971 when Hassan himself found an inscription in a little known tomb that described famine and anarchy:

‘All of Upper Egypt was dying of hunger, to such a degree that everyone had come to eating his children. . . .The entire country had become like a starved (?) grasshopper, with people going to the north and to the south (in search of grain) .’

However in 1971 scientist Barbara Bell published this:
The Dark Ages in Ancient History
1. The First Dark Age in Egypt!

In this publication she referenced numerous texts as evidence for her own theories about the Old Kingdom, one text which she described here….

‘Turning now to the written evidence itself, we may first consider ANKHTIFI, who is
known from the inscriptions in his tomb at Mo\’alla, some 20 miles south of Luxor. This tomb has beenthoroug hly studied by Vandier (1950) who is the source for the quotations3 which follow.’

Note the date of the source…1950….not 1971….and not from Hassan.

What was the quote from the inscription?

‘All of Upper Egypt was dying of hunger, to such a degree that everyone had come to eating his children. . . .The entire country had become like a starved (?) grasshopper, with people going to the north and to the south (in search of grain) .’

This is the exact quote that the BBC gives us and claims was found by Hassan.

Clearly it was not.

Clearly the ‘orthodoxy’ is not so certain at all….there is a vast amount of evidence and scientific reports detailing how Egypt suffered from climate driven disasters…the Bible itself indicates that this happened….and although obviously not scientific are almost certainly based on true events however altered in the telling over the years.

Here Bell peppers her text with references to other sources from years past:
‘The cause I postulate as “historical reality” is drought-widespread, severe, and prolonged lasting for several decades and occurring more or less simultaneously over the entire eastern Mediterranean and adjacent lands. This is not to deny the significance of contemporary political and social factors; it is, however, to assert that a climatic economic deterioration of sufficient magnitude can set in motion forces beyond the strength of any society to withstand. Such an hypothesis has indeed already been advanced by Rhys Carpenter (1966) for the Second Dark Age, c. 1200-900 B.C.; Even a moderate drought can bring famine to the marginally productive lands on the edges of the deserts and can thereby motivate tribal migrations and invasions of the better-watered river valleys, a phenomenon discussed by numerous scholars (e.g. Brooks 1949). ‘

She also reveals the widespread climate change in the late 19th century and early 20th century leading to drought and dustbowls across the world.

Long before even the discovery of the Ankhtifi inscription was this….
In 1890, Charles Wilbour discovered a stela on the island of Sahal that described a seven-year drought and famine that occurred during the reign of Pharaoh Djoser, said to have reigned during the classical Third Dynasty (the Old Kingdom)….. it tells a story of anarchy and mutual robbery.

 So Hassan neither discovered the inscription nor was he the first to discover or suggest that climate could effect agriculture and therefore produce famine which then created political instability.

Genesis 47:13 And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.

What does this suggest?

Firstly that perhaps the BBC has been conned…..perhaps ‘willingly’ so……into producing a programme in which one man, Fekri Hassan, is the’hero’….or ‘local hero’…..nothing like giving the credit to a non-white person to bolster an Empire guilt ridden BBCer’s self worth.

The failure to mention Bell or her predecessors can only have come as the result of a deliberate decision. There is plenty of readily available evidence to reveal their part in the theory of drought driven famine and subsequent disaster in Egypt.

Secondly why has the BBC recycled this 10 year old programme and gone to the trouble of updating it?

The only answer can be that the magic words ‘catastrophic climate change’ caught their eyes and they knew they could use this to keep on pushing their own climate change narrative, keeping it in the public eye and keeping associating it with disasters, collapse of even advanced civilisations and associated ‘unimaginable horrors’.

Naturally they forget to tell us what sort of cars the Egyptians were driving in 2200BC and strangely failed to mention that the drought and famine only ended when the wind turbines were mounted on large pyramid shaped constructions to catch the desert winds to produce the newly discovered electricity.


Biased BBC contributor Alan picks up on the fact that Richard Black has been busy since returning from his holidays…too busy to see this (or report it) from highly respected scientists and those who doubt the ‘Consensus’:

‘We, the undersigned, respectfully request that NASA and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) refrain from including unproven remarks in public releases and websites. We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated, especially when considering thousands of years of empirical data. With hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists publicly declaring their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, coming particularly from the GISS leadership, it is clear that the science is NOT settled. The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.’


With the Global Cooling Sceptics Deniers in full retreat now that the CRU scandal seems to have spread to New Zealand, the BBC are wheeling out any excuse for a we’re all doomed story…even if it flatly contradicts a previous example of how we are, errr, all doomed.

On the BBC, today:

Nigeria’s most celebrated environmental campaigner is about to launch a reality TV show to highlight the dangers of global warming for Africans.

At almost 72 years of age it is a wonder he still has the energy, but with three crossings of the barren wastes of the Sahara desert already behind him, Newton Jibunoh is preparing for the most ambitious desert adventure of his life.

After more than 40 years spent travelling the world explaining the dangers posed by global warming, and in particular the worsening problem of desertification in the Sahara region, Mr Jibunoh says his greatest concern remains the lack of awareness among Africans of the gravity of the situation.

The show is his way of spreading the word to a new generation of African environmentalists.

But as recently as July the BBC told us:

The evidence is limited and definitive conclusions are impossible to reach but recent satellite pictures of North Africa seem to show areas of the Sahara in retreat.

It could be that an increase in rainfall has caused this effect.

Farouk el-Baz, director of the Centre for Remote Sensing at Boston University, believes the Sahara is experiencing a shift from dryer to wetter conditions.

“It’s not greening yet. But the desert expands and shrinks in relation to the amount of energy that is received by the Earth from the Sun, and this over many thousands of years,” Mr el-Baz told the BBC World Service. “The heating of the Earth would result in more evaporation of the oceans, in turn resulting in more rainfall.”

Last year the local research centre, called Gobabeb, measured 80mm of rain. In the last decade they have seen the local river, a dry bed for most of the year, experience record-high floods. All this has coincided with record-high temperatures.

Make your mind up, guys. Wet or dry? That, of course, isn’t really the question for us here – inconsistency isn’t the same as bias. But the continued BBC attempts to spin and manipulate the Great Global Warming Hoax is clear bias for all to see, and that’s indisputable.


Six nutty females yesterday deposited a load of horse manure on the drive of Jeremy Clarkson. The reason? They don’t like free speech and especially his sceptical views on global warming. Most people would view such mindless, antisocial behaviour as worthy of a court appearance. But for the BBC, they are heroes, climate change warriors doing what they do best. It’s here.

Still on the subject of excrement – the journalistic variety – Corporation climate change fanatics are still pushing relentlessly the totally untrue story that the so-called North-East passage of the Arctic has been navigated for the first time. Richard North of EU Referendum debunks it in a cracking post this morning. Well worth a read to show the depths to which BBC journalism has dropped in its mindless pursuit of global warming moonshine.


I see that the eco-wackos will be out in force today, causing disruption for Londoners and costing the taxpayer lots of cash. Yet if one reads this report on the “Climate Camp” from the BBC one could be forgiven for thinking this is an outing from the Salvation Army rather than a hard left rabble with nothing better to do but threaten and disrupt the lawful activities of other citizens. Note the casual slur on the police whose liberal bosses seem to have responded to the previous media onslaught by “building relationships” with these loons. The BBC want to hear from those taking part in this disruption, maybe they should listen to those who view the antics of these eco-loons with utter contempt. Is Swampy a BBC producer?
