In my opinion this entire sorry episode goes straight to the heart of the difference between the way alarmists like Williamson see the world, and the way normal people view the world. Alarmists seem to want their models, theories and opinions to be accepted as established fact. But the reality is their shaky theories are full of poorly supported conjecture and extrapolation.

Climate propaganda: humour and a history lesson.
Under the previous government of the UK, this skit would have been very 'close to the bone'. Let us hope the new government will keep away from such madness. Mind you, in Canada when they went in for mass-indoctrination about climate dynamics back in 2002, something interesting happened:
'By 2002, McIntyre was in comfortable semi-retirement in Toronto ....every home in Canada was sent a leaflet about the risks of global warming. When McIntyre read his copy....'
The rest is history, ably documented in the book from which the above quote was taken, 'The Hockey Stick Illusion' ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Illusion-Climategate-Corruption-Science-Independent/dp/1906768358 ).
