Dedicated to the balanced discussion of global warming
Nature – November 9, 2007
The subject of global warming tends to bring out some fairly strong emotions. Earlier this week, I wrote about Dr. Gray’s opinion that he is being punished by his views. Also, Mr. Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States, has issued very strong challenges to the world and his marketing arm has compared this problem to WW2.
So it is no surprise when John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, says, “It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM.”
But Mr Colemen slams their views as part of a global conspiracy: “Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in [sic] allusion of rapid global warming.”
“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.
He added: “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.”
