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 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 do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party. However, Global Warming, ie 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 wont 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.
But, but, the consensus is in. NO further debate! (/sarcasm)
Common sense speaks and is not heard.
....Global Warming is a non-event, a manufactured crisis and a total scam.
John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, gets it.
.....manipulated long term scientific data to create AN ILLUSION of rapid global warming?..............
A man with a functioning brain.
What can one say other than yup?
He’s just an OUTLIAR..................
Don’t count on this myth to go away without a tremendous fight. All the power of the Leftmedia will be used to keep it alive, and by then the policies based on it will be entrenched. Consider that by the 1970’s, if not earlier, the leadership class of the Soviet Union recognized that Communism was junk, but they had to perpetuate it in order to cling to power.
But..but...what about the green peacock?
Maybe, if we have a battle royale now about it we can prevent a lot of this crap from becoming entrenched. That's my hope.
John Coleman has been on KUSI for some yrs. now here in San Diego
The hertic Coleman and I brushed by each other at the Convention of the American Meteorological Society in 1982 in Boston (where I think it was held that year). He was receiving an AMS award for his founding of the new cable channel. And, many of the egomaniacs of the broadcast channels back then were seething with jealousy over John’s accomplishment. It’s too bad that the Weather Channel has foundered on the shoals of political correctness since he gave up the reins early on in the channels’ growth. It used to be the first place I’d visit in the a.m. to check on the veracity of my own forecast issued the night before. Those were the days, when, graphics consisted of throwing magnetic numbers on a board and videotape of satellite pix and the like were all we had to use to portray a weathercast. What a puff job that was.
Good one. It’s no coincidence that Gore used the term “outlier” because he knows the idiots that believe him in bizarro world will hear “out and out liar”.
Yeah, back in the days when you could turn on the Weather Channel and, get this, find out the temperature!
Now it’s like MTV.
