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

I stole the headline above from Newsbusters because let’s face it, it’s hard to top that one, although I’m not entirely sure that he’s right. I mean, ponzi schemes have proven to be a brilliant scam and these Nigerian spam emails? They’ve turned into a whole industry. So, to be fair and balanced here, I’d have to say that global warming is, at best, the 3rd biggest scam in history.

Here’s an excerpt from John Coleman, the founder of the Weather Channel:

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 illusion 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.

…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.

Agreed. If you look at the scientific evidence, such as it is given our limited understanding of our own climate, it seems very obvious that the global warming alarmists are way, way, off base. So, the real challenge isn’t global warming, it’s to keep the hysterical, left-wing Chicken Littles from imposing massive new taxes and regulations in an effort to cope with an imaginary crisis that isn’t ever going to come.
