Josh writes: On Wednesday the BBC’s Newsnight interviewed Emma Thompson on the newsworthy topic of left wing activists protesting about drilling for oil in the Arctic. And refugees. And voting for Jeremy Corbyn, hopeful candidate for the Leadership of the UK Labour Party.
Emma clearly did not have a clue what she was talking about – even Richard Betts, from the UK Met Office, said she was wrong (good on you, Richard). Ed Hawkins, Climate Scientist, also tweeted “what Emma Thompson said was scientifically inaccurate & implausible.”
Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis suggested Emma get herself arrested. Hmm.
[Update: added Ed’s Tweet]
