John Coleman, American TV weatherman and founder of The Weather Channel, is a climate skeptic. His long-standing role as a weatherman gave him a veneer of expertise, at least in the eyes of the average layperson in his audience. Coleman’s climate remarks have often been quoted in order to bolster climate denial arguments.
However, Coleman’s climate statements are FALSE. Weathermen, even meteorologists, are not in the same class as climate scientists — whose observations are based on highly-specialized empirical research. Some opinions carry more weight than others.
“Global warming: It is a hoax. It is bad science. It is high-jacking public policy. It is the greatest scam in history.” ~ John Coleman
In one accord: “Go Green!”
