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

Recommended Posts

Intro by Joe D’Aleo, Icecap, CCM

I was privileged to work with John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel in the year before it became a reality and then for the first of the 6 years I was fortunate to be the Director of Meteorology. No one worked harder than John to make The Weather Channel a reality and to make sure the staffing, the information and technology was the very best possible at that time. John currently works with KUSI in San Diego. He posts regularly. I am very pleased to present his latest insightful post.

 

By John Coleman

 

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 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 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.

lots of people agree with him.

 

and like he said, we'll have to wait a decade or two and see..

FACT: the weather channel does support the war on manbearpig.

 

FACT: you guys haven’t been watching your local on the 8s if you think the weather channel doesn’t believe in a halfmanhalfbearhalfpig entity that is single handedly extending the prime fishing season by a month and a half

 

FACT: the weather channel actually blamed the socal fires on manbearpig before it came out that it was arson.

that article you posted is a simplistic piece of shit, however i do agree that there isn't conclusive evidence supporting climate change scenarios. I do think that the changes they are encouraging are good for the planet no matter what the catalyst is.

In my opinion scientists and environmentalists have realised after years of effort that the mass of humanity is far too stupid and lazy to do anything unless they themselves are directly threatened. So they hammer home constantly the message of global warming as something that is about to kill each and every one of us so that fuckwit humans actually can be bothered to turn their fucking lightswitch off when they leave the house.

yes... i will agree with the decade or to...

 

but regardless, the planet is warming at a alarming rate... like nothing that has ever been seen in recent (geological) time.... that is proven by science.. (which means that its still a theory, but for those of you who don't know please look up the scientific process, and what a scientific theory is).... Even if we don't see the most sensational predictions (that are picked up by the media) in the next 20 years.... does it mean that global warming doesn't exist? does it mean that its not man made?

 

This guy is a fool, sorry his argument is weak regardless... look at the data, even someone with a american high school education (can barely read and write, never mind any math skills) can see that science has shown that fossil fuels have some significant negative impact on our environment... and do seriously contribute to global warming...

yeah all those evil scientists and greenies want to CONTROL THE WORLD :rolleyes:

 

 

 

well, not the scientists, more like the elites.

 

think about it yum. what better way to get a grip of taxes, etc.

 

watch that movie and get back to me.

i think i posted this before, but the earth goes thru cycles of cooling and heating every 11 years on a small scale. And also roughly every 5100 years on a much larger scale. Take a look at the last ice age, they are now finding green foliage that has been frozen under the polar ice caps... what does that tell you??? A VERY quick down swing in global temperature. Within the next 50-100 years you WILL see the temperature increase, the polar ice caps melt and the below sea level areas of the earth be covered in water. Not soley because of global warming, this only expidites the process. But because this planet operated on CYCLES... and it will continue to do so, long after we nuke each other off the face of the earth.

I will say this again.

 

 

At this point, it matters not whether "Global Warming" is as bad as some say, or if you prefer the more apt phrase "Global Climate Change," the issue is with infrastructure.

 

What everyone needs to get through their paranoid, skeptical, rightist, leftist, whateverthefuckist heads is that things are chaaaaaaaangggiiing. Who cares to what degree, just that they are.

 

Beyond all this or that argument as to which model accurately predicts the rapidity of these changes, recognize that things are changing.

 

Even if this is just a natural thing, its a natural thing we need to cope along with. The politics of this or that agenda is subordinated by the recognition that we as humans are used to the dictum of changing what is around us for our needs rather than in any way curbing that impulse.

 

As mams pointed out, take it in terms of pascal's wager (now I personally refute this argument when it comes to religion, but I will accept it in this case). If, all the environmentalists and scientist in favor of accepting the notion of "Global Climate Change" are wrong, soo what? The changes that are being suggested, are more oft than not shit that shoulda happened fuckin years ago. Not even for environmental reasons, just for plain fuckin efficiency.

 

I just don't get why everyone is still blowing their own dicks on all of this. Accept that things are changing, for whatever reason, but for christ fuckin sake, accept that they are changing and that we need to change along with them.

There were also many credible scientists who said tobacco isn't addicting or harmful.

99% of scientists agree that the planets warming or climate change is gaining momentum.

There is no political or financial gain for saying climate change is real. It's counterproductive

to our economic and political system to suggest we should slow down with co2 emissions.

 

 

Motive for lying about "global warming" = nonexistant

The climate is changing faster than it has in a very long time.

You get your stat from where? It is not close to 99%. Try about 50.

 

It was just over a decade ago that "scientists" were convinced we were on the brink of another ice age. The major meda has gone back and forth on this issue numerous times over the past 100 years. Know what? They were wrong every time.

Global Warming Fast Facts

 

Is It Happening?

 

Yes. Earth is already showing many signs of worldwide climate change.

 

• Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

 

• The rate of warming is increasing. The 20th century's last two decades were the hottest in 400 years and possibly the warmest for several millennia, according to a number of climate studies. And the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850.

 

• The Arctic is feeling the effects the most. Average temperatures in Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia have risen at twice the global average, according to the multinational Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report compiled between 2000 and 2004.

 

• Arctic ice is rapidly disappearing, and the region may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040 or earlier. Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already suffering from the sea-ice loss.

 

• Glaciers and mountain snows are rapidly melting—for example, Montana's Glacier National Park now has only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910. In the Northern Hemisphere, thaws also come a week earlier in spring and freezes begin a week later.

 

• Coral reefs, which are highly sensitive to small changes in water temperature, suffered the worst bleaching—or die-off in response to stress—ever recorded in 1998, with some areas seeing bleach rates of 70 percent. Experts expect these sorts of events to increase in frequency and intensity in the next 50 years as sea temperatures rise.

 

• An upsurge in the amount of extreme weather events, such as wildfires, heat waves, and strong tropical storms, is also attributed in part to climate change by some experts.

 

Are Humans Causing It?

 

• "Very likely," the IPCC said in a February 2007 report.

 

The report, based on the work of some 2,500 scientists in more than 130 countries, concluded that humans have caused all or most of the current planetary warming. Human-caused global warming is often called anthropogenic climate change.

 

 

• Industrialization, deforestation, and pollution have greatly increased atmospheric concentrations of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, all greenhouse gases that help trap heat near Earth's surface. (See an interactive feature on how global warming works.)

 

• Humans are pouring carbon dioxide into the atmosphere much faster than plants and oceans can absorb it.

 

• These gases persist in the atmosphere for years, meaning that even if such emissions were eliminated today, it would not immediately stop global warming.

 

• Some experts point out that natural cycles in Earth's orbit can alter the planet's exposure to sunlight, which may explain the current trend. Earth has indeed experienced warming and cooling cycles roughly every hundred thousand years due to these orbital shifts, but such changes have occurred over the span of several centuries. Today's changes have taken place over the past hundred years or less.

 

• Other recent research has suggested that the effects of variations in the sun's output are "negligible" as a factor in warming, but other, more complicated solar mechanisms could possibly play a role.

 

 

What's Going to Happen?

 

A follow-up report by the IPCC released in April 2007 warned that global warming could lead to large-scale food and water shortages and have catastrophic effects on wildlife.

 

• Sea level could rise between 7 and 23 inches (18 to 59 centimeters) by century's end, the IPCC's February 2007 report projects. Rises of just 4 inches (10 centimeters) could flood many South Seas islands and swamp large parts of Southeast Asia.

 

• Some hundred million people live within 3 feet (1 meter) of mean sea level, and much of the world's population is concentrated in vulnerable coastal cities. In the U.S., Louisiana and Florida are especially at risk.

 

• Glaciers around the world could melt, causing sea levels to rise while creating water shortages in regions dependent on runoff for fresh water.

 

• Strong hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, wildfires, and other natural disasters may become commonplace in many parts of the world. The growth of deserts may also cause food shortages in many places.

 

• More than a million species face extinction from disappearing habitat, changing ecosystems, and acidifying oceans.

 

• The ocean's circulation system, known as the ocean conveyor belt, could be permanently altered, causing a mini-ice age in Western Europe and other rapid changes.

 

• At some point in the future, warming could become uncontrollable by creating a so-called positive feedback effect. Rising temperatures could release additional greenhouse gases by unlocking methane in permafrost and undersea deposits, freeing carbon trapped in sea ice, and causing increased evaporation of water.

and even though i said "everyone" i didn't actually mean that. it was more so just a statement of frustration about this argument in general. the pitfalls of it, the social importance and its other implications which don't receive full treatment because people become stuck on surface level issues.

The only selfish motive i can think of for the US government accepting climate change is that they may want to stunt Chinese industrial capacity by putting a carbon limit on them. I have absolutely no reason to believe this is the case though it's just something that occurred to me as a theoretical possibility

Even at this, China has been one of the leading countries working with non-profits to develop efficient and green means to continue their recent industrial boom.

 

 

My mom was tellin me bout the work Environmental Defense Fund has done with China over the last decade or so.
