Meteorologist John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, recently blasted the global warming fear-mongers in an op ed piece largely ignored by the mainstream media, which is busy fanning the flames of global warming hysteria.
This is must reading originally posted at the Web site of ICECAP (International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project).
Coleman called the Al Gore-led global warming bandwagon, "the greatest scam in history."
We know what drives a megalomaniac like Gore, but Coleman also chides scientists "with environmental and political motives" for misleading the public about climate change.
It's all about the money, according to Coleman, who argues that a vocal segment of the scientific community "manipulated long term scientific data to create an illusion of rapid global warming." Their motivation is to keep the research money flowing to find a solution to non-existent problem.
Throw in self-serving politicians and their allies in the mainstream media and you've created the perfect storm for worldwide hysteria.
"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," Coleman writes
"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," Coleman writes. "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."
Coleman says he and other skeptics will be vindicated in time, but the world, and the United States in particular, will have squandered precious resources on a "manufactured crisis."
"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."

Anyone who still has an open mind about the global warming hype should arm themselves with the facts presented by Coleman and stand up to the environmental fascists ... before it's too late.
