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.
I was wondering if anyone would notice................;^)
This is a good one! Ping!
Notice how Gore just casually dismisses anyone or anything that contradicts his “facts” about globull warming?
Oh, he’s just and outlier, or they are just this or that? He never responds to the data presented. He never concedes that he might have some things wrong. He ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT debate ANYONE on the subject. Just that smirk of condescension and arrogance and a wave of the hand like everybody else is a moron except him.
These scientists are people that have half the alphabet after their names and have studied and actually worked in the fields of which the speak.
All Gore has after his name is former senator, VP, sore loser Prez candidate, Academy Award and a Nobel Prize, none of which has anything to do with science or even institutes of higher learning.
How the whole world can fall for this guy’s scam is beyond me. Everywhere he goes, people just fawn all over him like he’s some messianic deliverer from the great beyond. He’s a buffoon and a con man. P.T. Barnum would be so proud..............
It’s nuts. I tune in for a Local on the 8’s, and it seems like every frickin’ time, there is some storm drama pre-empting it.
“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.”
Sonny Eliot? Is that you?
Indeed, it is, surpassing the 'acid rain' scam of a few years ago, and the 'coming ice age' scam before that. The entire goal of the global warming scam is that the liberals can find a new way to extract more money from the wallets of those that earn it and divvy it up amongs themselves.
Local on the 8's may not be seen today, but 'it could happen tomorrow'. :-)
Nonsense. Today is 5 degrees warmer than yesterday here in Palm Springs. Do the math. This trend, if man allows it to continue, will mean a 35 degree increase in a week, a 140 degree increase in a month and 1,680 degree increase in a year year. Tell me we’re not all gonna die. Good grief people, wake up.
“Hes just an OUTLIAR..................”
I am a proud outliar!

And the author claims the climate change crowd are scamers???? Good grief people, wake up. The facts speak for themselves. Just do the math. /sarc off
I have this unshakable feeling that our grandchildren will be wondering what was wrong with us to get jerked around so much by these idiots.
Gotta believe you are going to be proven right. I know that I wonder why my grandparents bought into all of FDR’s stuff.
Many of them were suffering and looking for government help. Then when the war hit, they didn’t want to change horses.
But what if you are wrong.
WE MUST DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING JUST IN CASE!!!!!!
I'm sorry, but there's a lot of competition for that distinction. How about communism, and some of its lesser cousins, government schools, government health care, Social Security, etc.?
“How the whole world can fall for this guys scam is beyond me. Everywhere he goes, people just fawn all over him like hes some messianic deliverer from the great beyond. Hes a buffoon and a con man. P.T. Barnum would be so proud...........”
Starting to think he has 666 under his scalp......
~~ AGW ping~~
"Sea level has been rising at a rate of 1.8 mm per year for the past 8,000 years. The IPCC notes that No significant acceleration in the rate of sea level rise during the 20th century has been detected. [In spite of "man-made" CO2 - my comment] Unless there is another Little Ice Age, they will continue rising at roughly this rate for centuries to come."
Which means the "rise in sea levels" would continue as follows: 1ft in 200 yrs, 2ft in 400 years, 2.7ft in 500 years, 5.4ft in 1,000 yrs, 11ft in 2,000 yrs, 16ft in 3,000 yrs, 21.5ft in 4,000 yrs, 27ft in 5,000 yrs and 54ft in 10,000 yrs.
If humans are not smart enough to make the adjustments to simply where they live (either protect it or move), required by those rates of sea level changes, then they won't deserve to still be here.
Actually, it is far more complex than that. One of the things that occurred was orchestrated propaganda - remarkably similar to global warming intensity.
Sadly, it won't matter. The anti-humans will just move to another topic to push their stale communism.
You know no one but me is going to get that, right?
And me. The guy was a trip.
I watched the movie “The Lives of Others” this weekend. The East German Stasi reminded me of Clinton, Gore and co.
He’s on WWJ again.
Thanks. This is from his impressive bio on the WWJ site:
Sonny’s been making Detroiters smile about the weather for years. Unlike any other in the country, Eliot’s weathercasts are a mixture of fast-paced humor, bits of far-out philosophy, one liners, improbable analogies and similes, and, not to be overlooked, easy-to-understand weather forecasts. The National Association of TV Program Executives (NATPE) has named his witty reports the nation’s best.
I assumed he had gone to the great beyond, nice surprise to see that he hasn’t.
During World War II, Eliot was a B-24 bomber pilot when he was shot down over Germany and spent the next 18 months as a prisoner of war in Stalagluft I. While in captivity he lifted the morale of the other prisoners by staging original skits and revues. He holds the rank of Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve and was named Air Force Liaison Officer for the 1st Congressional District.
