    Weather Channel Founder: Global Warming ‘Greatest Scam in History’
    By Noel Sheppard | November 7, 2007 - 17:58 ET

    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 published at ICECAP Wednesday that should certainly garner attention from press members -- assuming journalism hasn't been completely replaced by propagandist activism, that is

    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....

    He's not a scientist. He's a TV weatherman.

    Hence, his opinion carries the weight proportional to a TV weatherman

    Then don't listen to either a Vice President or a TV Weatherman.

    I listen to the actual scientific experts. Every single major scientific organization, with expertise in climate science, in the nation, and indeed the world has concluded humans are contributing to climate change.

    I don't even understand why you continue to beat this deadhorse. The last few dead ender denialists aren't going to convince anyone. I think every top tier republican GOP candidate recognizes the need to act on human contributions to greenhouse gas emissions, and so does President Bush himself.

    Who are you trying to convince? The last remaining dead enders, who appear to be huddled together holding hands, and trying to convince each other that they weren't wrong for the last 20 years?

    He's the weatherman for KUSI here in San Diego. He's knows his weather. The only reliable weatherman around here.

    Act on what? There is no actual evidence that proves human contributions, at what level, and/or how to global warming. The best you got is "well, it makes sense."

    Possibly. It even MORE likely it's a cyclical climate change. Y'know, like the one the Earth has gone through since forever?

    It doesn't matter who agrees out of fear of being called a name by the lemmings rushing over the cliff. That isn't evidence either.

    When your great leading scientists and "top tier Republicans" can identify how, when and where man is affecting global warming, THEN you can act. Arbitrarily doing monkey-flips without a clue is stupid.

    Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.), once a skeptic of global warming, got a hint that the political winds might be shifting when a longtime supporter warned that he might vote against Inglis if he “didn’t clean up his act on the environment.”

    The warning came from Inglis’ eldest son, Robert Jr., now 22.

    His daughter was no less blunt about the congressman’s refusal to embrace the view that global warming was being caused by human actions and that a serious response is needed. “I have three more kids coming up — and they seem to share the same view,” Inglis said.

    Family pressure worked. Inglis traveled to Antarctica and, most recently, to Greenland to witness the effects of rising CO2 levels and temperatures. He now believes the science behind global warming. And he believes the politics are equally conclusive: Republicans will “get hammered” if they do not reckon with the issue soon.


    Republican Sen. John Warner of Virginia has said his top goal for his remaining days in office is passing legislation to combat global warming.

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is warning that Republicans will get whacked in swing suburban areas if they keep acting like global warming does not exist.

    And Ken Mehlman, the former top Bush strategist and one of the more innovative minds in GOP politics today, has been telling anyone who will listen that Republicans risk losing young voters if they do not seriously deal with the issue.

    Republicans will get hammered if they don't buy into global warming? Heh. Let's not kid ourselves; until sea levels rise drastically, no one gives a shit. I mean honestly. Sure, you can take a poll and the average man on the street would love to have a car that runs on hydrogen or whatever. He just doesn't want to pay the much higher prices that would go with it.

    Also, the idea that scientists are immune to politics and would simply ignore the mass quantities of money being funneled into promoting the global warming scare is just laughable. There is funding to be secured out there, and you get it by promoting what government wants. If a study is funded by industry, we are (rightly) skeptical; but when government funds something we assume that there are no strings attached? Ultimately, this is all about getting a big fat carbon tax. That's the end game.
