Weather Channel Boss Calls Global Warming 'The Greatest Scam In History'
The Telegraph ^ | 09 Nov 2007 | Foreign Staff

Posted on 12/24/2010 11:25:04 PM PST by Windflier

The founder of the The Weather Channel in the US has described the concept of global warming as 'the greatest scam in history' and accused global media of colluding with 'environmental extremists' to alarm the public.

"It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM," John Coleman wrote in an article published on ICECAP, the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project...

An oldie, but a goodie to add to your Christmas cheer. John Coleman rips the AGW crowd a new one in this article.

More of John Coleman’s remarks from the article:

“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.”

Don’t miss the comments at the end of this article. Some of the best debunking of the AGW theory I’ve read.

Uh-oh. Impending debates with liberal family members?

If you need ammo, it's in the comments section. Some fine arguments against the scam are in there.

Hey, it's not my fault that the article re-surfaced on a blog I was reading .. LOL

I did a search, and there's no record of it ever being posted at FR (not that means it never was).

If you have to debate the brain dead liberals on AGW, ask them what caused the 300+ years MWP (medieval warm period),
followed by the little ice age.

Are you aware that US scientists have been bouncing laser beams off a reflector that the Apollo crews left on the moon, for over 40 years now?

It's neat how they did that without ever leaving low earth orbit, eh?

Indeed it is.

No Smoking Hot Spot (The Australian)

The missing hotspot (JoNova)

Those two articles take Greenhouse Theory at face value and by the criterion set up in the theory itself finds no evidence of warming on the basis of greenhouse effect.

The Hidden Flaw in Greenhouse Theory

Falsification Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics

Harvard astrophysicist dismisses AGW theory, challenges peers to 'take back climate science'

It Is Impossible For A 100 ppm Increase In Atmospheric CO2 Concentration To Cause Global Warming

Those four articles each show that Greenhouse Theory has no basis in reality due to a direct conflict with the known laws of physics. No wonder the smoking gun "hotspot" can't be found.

Claim That Sea Level Is Rising Is a Total Fraud

That article pretty much puts the kibosh on any serious trend of planetary warming from any cause. Think about it. If there is absolutely no sign at all of rising sea levels how could the planet be warming? Beyond the centuries long slow warming of the earth and rising of the seas of course. But that is only a few millimeters per century due to the inter-glacial period we are in.

You're welcome. Now about what you "see" in eyedigresses post; I don't see it but how about the To: line in #13?

And if you want to see something really weird take a look at post #6 1/2 in this thread. Yes, I said post number six and a half. Scroll over the poster's handle while you're there and check the sign up date.

Oh, I'm not late to the parade. This article may be from three years back, but it's still getting new comments, and it was posted up on a blog I was reading tonight.

It didn't show up in a search, so I thought I'd post it to share John Coleman's brutal comments about the AGW cult.

Yeah, the mods like to do that now and again. Here's a thread where Sarah weighed in a few months ago, scroll to post #57 1/2.

...about what you "see" in eyedigresses post; I don't see it...

It wasn't what I saw in his post, it's what he saw in my post at #7. He was asking me how I managed to reply to another poster, but addressed it to myself. I have no idea how that happened.

...how about the To: line in #13?

The poster (markos33) simply deleted the "post to" info from the address box and typed in a new To: at the top of his post. It only looks like it's addressed to me, but it's not in my pings.

...if you want to see something really weird take a look at post #6 1/2 in this thread.

Oh, I know the one you're talking about. That got my attention, too. I had to go back to it three or four times to figure out how he did it. Pretty darn cool, if you ask me.

Yep...there's one person I know of who can do that, and that's BufordP.

He did that to me once and sent me crying to SA& to find out what was going on.

I'm going to have BufordP to teach me how to do that one of these days...

I've tried that before and get an error message saying "no poster by that name." 'all' is the only thing I've ever put in a 'to' line that stays and isn't an actual FReep handle. Oh, well.

You can wipe out all of the info in the To: box and your post will still appear. You put the fake address in the Reply box.

Bold the poster's name, then add a horizontal line underneath. Add a space under that, then type in a response and it will look to the eye like any other post, except it won't be addressed to anyone, in fact.

You mean those Lunar missions where the landing modules are still sitting on the surface and recently photographed by satellites? Perhaps the satellites are in on the "scam" too?

I think I'm in the only part of the country that isn't getting severe winter weather right now. It's like there's a force field around Dallas - Ft Worth.

This time last year, we had snow coming down all night long. Christmas morning was like a picture post card.

Stay warm, my friend. Merry Christmas!

Yes, but instead, the house will probably increase funding for it, offer up a bill giving complete control to the UN over our carbon emissions, then get on TV and claim they are reducing the deficit, and they are not going to sign anything else Obama wants. Heck, they’ll even stamp their feet and claim that this is the “last time” that they are going to give in.

Obama will get on TV, and claim that he lost, because the house did not give him enough funds, but NEXT TIME he’s going to play hard ball and bring a gun to a knife fight.

Remember, if you enter a poker game, and can’t identify the dumb-arse, then its probably YOU.

I look around at all the players, the prez, the house, the senate, and the SCOTUS and can’t figure out which is dumber. Then I realize its ‘we the people’. We are the dumb-arse in this poker game.

We are in what has best been called “an interglacial maximum”.

For the vast majority of the last 800,000 years or so, the temperatures averaged 7-10 degrees Celsius cooler then it is now.

And it repeats. Like clockwork. Within the next 5-10 thousand years, the temps WILL PLUMMET. We’re talking ice age type stuff here, places like Toronto under 7,000 feet of ice, that kind of stuff.
