Weather Channel founder debunks global warming hoax
Meteorologist John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, recently blasted the global warming fear-mongers in an op ed piece largely ignored by the mainstream media, which is too busy fanning the flames of global warming hysteria.
Coleman calls global warming hysteria perpetuated by the likes of Al Gore, "the greatest scam in history."
We know what drives a megalomaniac like Gore, but Coleman scolds scientists "with environmental and political motives" for misleading the public about climate change, which is a natural phenomenon that has been recorded throughout Earth's history.
It's all about money, according to Coleman, who argues that a vocal segment of the scientific community "manipulated long term scientific data to create an illusion of rapid global warming." The motivation is to keep the research money flowing to find a solution to a non-existent problem.
Throw in self-serving politicians and their allies in the mainstream media and you’ve created the perfect storm for worldwide hysteria.
"Environmental extremists, notable politicians among them, then teamed up with movie, media and other liberal, environmentalist journalists to create this wild 'scientific' scenario of the civilization threatening environmental consequences from global warming unless we adhere to their radical agenda," Coleman writes.
Coleman has been a TV weatherman since he was a freshman in college in 1953.
"I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party. However, global warming, i.e. climate change, is not about environmentalism or politics. It is not a religion. It is not something you 'believe in.' It is science; the science of meteorology," Coleman says. "This is my field of life-long expertise. And I am telling you global warming is a non-event, a manufactured crisis and a total scam."
Coleman's comments have not been reported by the mainstream media, but have been making the rounds in the blogosphere. The story also caught the attention of NewsBusters (http://newsbusters.org), a Web site devoted to exposing and combatting liberal media bias. But over in the mainstream media, NBC sent "Today" show anchors to Antarctica and Greenland and broadcast shows by candlelight. It's all smoke and no fire, according to Coleman.
"Their ridiculous manipulated science has been accepted as fact and become a cornerstone issue for CNN, CBS, NBC, the Democratic Political Party, the governor of California, school teachers and, in many cases, well informed but very gullible environmentally conscientious citizens," Coleman said. Only one reporter at ABC (John Stossel) has been allowed to counter the global warming frenzy with one 15 minute documentary segment.
Coleman says he and other global warming skeptics will be vindicated in time, but the world, and the United States in particular, will have squandered precious resources on a "manufactured crisis."
"In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious," Coleman says. "As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling. And, natural cycles and drifts in climate are as much if not more responsible for any climate changes underway. I strongly believe that the next twenty years are equally as likely to see a cooling trend as they are to see a warming trend."
Coleman still works as a weatherman for KUSI TV in San Diego.
Coleman's full article is must reading. It was originally posted at the Web site of ICECAP, the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project. Look for it and numerous other articles by scientists and weather experts at http://icecap.us/
Anyone who still has an open mind about the global warming hype should arm themselves with the facts presented by Coleman and stand up to the environmental fascists ... before it's too late.
