I agree that Mr. Coleman is both ignorant and arrogant.

This is a perfect example of a fellow with an undergraduate meteorology degree who probably
never had a single course on climate and understands not the simple physics of greenhouse
gases, first expressed in 1827 by Fourier.

Yes, Heidi Cullen works for this fellow. She must truly be upset by his pronouncement.

When she interviewed me a few years ago for her climate segment, she informed me that the
'meteorologists' at the Weather Channel had a view of global warming that was pretty much
that expressed by Mr. Coleman. Now I see why that was so.

Perhaps I should offer to give my Global Warming lecture at the Weather Channel and engage
with Mr. Coleman thereon.


This guy is the Whacko....
In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious.
This could be paraphrased
In a decade or two, it will be patently obvious to everyone on the planet
that the climate is warming..
Unfortunately, it will be virtually impossible (then) to do anything about it.
As you know the rest of world (even more so than some good people in the US)
also believe that warming is happening and we're responsible.
Doesn't Heidi Cullen work for this guy? I've just voted for her on the AMS Council
Ballot. Voted for Tom Karl as well!
Great iceberg picture on that 'cure' story - the cure that isn't a cure...

Weather Channel Founder: Global Warming 'Greatest Scam in History'

If the founder of The Weather Channel spoke out strongly against the manmade global
warming myth, might media members notice?

We're going to find out the answer to that question soon, for John Coleman wrote an
article [1] published at ICECAP Wednesday that should certainly garner attention from
press members -- assuming journalism hasn't been completely replaced by propagandist
activism, that is.


Coleman marvelously began (emphasis added, h/t NB reader coffee250):
It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it.
Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political
motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in [sic] allusion of rapid
global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the
circle to support and broaden the "research" to further enhance the totally slanted,
bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants
their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.
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. Now 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 environmental conscientious citizens. Only one reporter at
ABC has been allowed to counter the Global Warming frenzy with one 15 minutes
documentary segment.
I have read dozens of scientific papers. I have talked with numerous scientists. I have
studied. I have thought about it. I know I am correct. There is no run away climate
change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril.
I am incensed by the incredible media glamour, the politically correct silliness and
rude dismissal of counter arguments by the high priest of Global Warming.
In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious.
Let's hope so, John; let's hope so.
