Environmental campaigner and botanist David Bellamy said that he was banned by the BBC after he expressed his views on global warming. The Daily Telegraph (UK) reports that Prince Phillip has invited David Bellamy to the palace.
The Prince of Wales warned in March 2009 that there were “less than 100 months to act” to save the planet from irreversible damage due to climate change. His father is known to be more sceptical.
Now, the Duke of Edinburgh has invited Britain’s best-known global warming heretic to give a lecture at Buckingham Palace.
David Bellamy, who described last month how the BBC “froze him out” when he dismissed global warming as “poppycock”, is to give the inaugural David Bellamy Lecture at the Palace next month
