Weather Channel Founder, John Coleman: Global Warming ‘Greatest Scam in History’

by Stephen Littau

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 an illusion 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 environmentally conscientious citizens. Only one reporter at ABC has been allowed to counter the Global Warming frenzy with one 15 minute documentary segment.

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. 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. I say this knowing you probably won’t believe a me, a mere TV weatherman, challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States. So be it.

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. 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.

Who should we believe: John Coleman, meteorologist and the founder of the Weather Channel or Al Gore, political hack? And to think that I thought the debate on global warming was over!

  2. 30 years ago it was the coming iceage,now warming; which would have advantages to the growing season and increased food supply.
    But that doesn’t fit the template.
    I would call Al Gore an idiot, if it weren’t an insult to idiots.

  3. Al Gore, political hack

    How dare you talk about a Nobel Peace Prize winner like that!

  5. At my Rotary chapter we had a meteorologist give a great presentation about the “science” behind the global warming crews. Incorrectly deployed temperature monitors, improperly collated data, utterly speculative climate models…it’s incredible just how bullshit the scientific case for global warming is. I’d say it’s incredible that the press has bought so completely into it, but then again a large number of those guys are gullible idiots anyway when you hit them with pseudo-scientific terminology.

  7. “Who should we believe: John Coleman, meteorologist and the founder of the Weather Channel or Al Gore, political hack?”

    Oops. You have a few mistakes or typos in the above. Let me correct for you.

    “Who should we believe: John Coleman, man who goes ‘wheeeeeee’ on television news when reporting the weather each evening’ or the man who funded the internet, took proactive action against ozone gasses, was vice president of the united states, started a successful cable channel, won a nobel prize and several awards for a financially successful movie, and won the 2000 presidential election–popular vote and the vote in Florida.”

    There. Now it’s much more accurate.

    Obviously you vote for the “wheeeeeee” guy.

    Great post by the way. You really get to the heart of the matter. You must be a deep thinker.

  9. To use Capital Weather’s own terminology, here’s a devastating rebuttal to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”. There’s a lot of inconvenient untruth being spread about.

  10. hahaha. The Nobel Peace Prize has been reduced to a politicized piece of junk.
    He did not meet any of the requirements one is supposed to meet to receive it. It’s just a bunch of political crap, he beat out a woman who saved over eighty people in the Holocaust. Al Gore is a ridiculous person, and so is his show of slides.
    I’m also quite sure he didn’t fund the internet all on his own, nor do I care about things like him making lots of money, what does that have to do with his retarded movie being ACCURATE?

  11. If, indeed, global warming is such a near term, devastating threat, why is it that NONE of the high visibility proponents “walk the walk”? I’m not talking about buying a Prius or a flex fuel whatever (which diverts food corn from starving 3rd world citizenry to higher paying fuel corn markets…fact).

    Driving a smaller car occasionally while living in an energy sucking mansion is hypocrisy. And buying carbon credits, whatever that is, simply soothes their not-so-guilty consciences.

    The Earth is not in danger, it takes care of itself despite comets, asteroids, supervolcanoes, etc. Our impact isn’t going to do much.

    When Al Gore and the Hollywood hot air group change their lifestyles in a meaningful fashion, then I’ll sit up and listen. Meanwhile, I just see a political fad, pure and simple.

    for your consideration, concerning biofuels. It appears there is an economic downside, invisible to the end users.

  13. Re: the so-called “devastating rebuttal” posted at http://www.capitalweather.com/2007/11/no-need-for-climate-change-conspiracy.php:

    It would be a real stretch to call this rebuttal “devastating.” In the main, this “rebuttal” resorts to name calling. Coleman’s arguments about media gullibility in the face of political pressure is not even contradicted in this “devastating rebuttal.” Could it be that Coleman’s argument is, in fact, true?

  14. I do climate studies. There is NO global warming. Some regions are warming others are cooling. You can not call it global. It is the way for scientist to get funding. Heck, give me $100,000 grant and I will tell you whatever you want to hear.
