Bill Giles calls on broadcasters to talk about climate change

Climate Change will cause extreme weather and rainfall a standard

The expert weatherman Bill Giles is calling on the BBC and other major broadcasters to fundamentally refurbishment their forecasts to incorporate information about climate change.

To highlight climate change to face the “reality more squarely and openly”, more needs to be done by broadcasters said the former head of BBC weather presenters.

Giles, who presented weather forecasts at the corporation for nearly two decades, is urging TV channels to come up with a “deep-seated approach to keep viewers properly up-to-date”.

In a section for Radio Times, Giles wrote that, the hourly forecasts that we now see do an excellent job in giving us the likely weather events over the coming few days, and this must continue. But to properly explain the fundamental changes to climate they will need to look much further at the weather across the world, reporting and analyzing extremes on a daily basis.

He has even urged the BBC and the other major broadcasters to incorporate an additional five- to 10-minute slot into the forecast that focuses properly and honestly on the Earth’s changing climate.

This climate change slot should air at least once a week and would use our technical ability to show weather everywhere in the world to explain in clear or technical terms, the reasons why our climate is changing – largely due to human influences and its effects on human and animal life.

A BBC spokesman also stated that they are already looking at climate change very carefully to see how they can communicate its impacts, particularly on extreme weather events both in the UK and around the world.

According BBC weather, as the climate changes, so will the weather we experience on a day to day basis. Working with the media to increase understanding of the science behind how the likelihood of heatwaves, floods or storms may change in the future should be welcomed.
