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.
"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.
If that’s the case, I, too grew up with him. Are you sure
it’s the same John Coleman...he’s got to 70-80.
Did you grow up here?
Lansing. MI will always be home.
Dearborn until I married, now Downriver.
For me, it's now really "settled science."
I am impressed that you manage to keep your sensibilities about you. Must be you picked a good gal!!
Is granholm out in the next election?
You make me feel as though I should change my name to Ellen. LOL. I’m a woman.
Unless she runs for another office, yes. There is a two term limit here. In her case, two terms too long.
Oops !! Sorry.
I did not realize she is in her 2nd term. I hope the next Gov does better for you.
Great Courage, John - Telling the TRUTH!!!
Afraid not! Go to the AMS website and look for television seal of approval holder’s page; seal #230. You’ll have your answer.
