Weather Channel founder dispels global warming hype

If you're tired of the hype by climate change extremists (I'm talking to you, Al Gore) and would like to read a common sense perspective on the issue, may I recommend two articles posted on The New American magazine Web site.

This month's cover story, "2008 Climate Debate," is about the global warming hysteria perpetuated by the far left media.

From the article by William F. Jasper:
However, for many of the world’s leading scientists in the fields of meteorology, climatology, physics, astrophysics, and related sciences, the science is far from settled, Al Gore’s media accolades notwithstanding. Over the past few years, more than 19,000 American scientists have signed a dissenting petition coauthored by Dr. Frederick Seitz, renowned physicist and former president of the National Academy of Sciences, and Dr. Arthur Robinson, president of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine ( The petition urges political leaders to reject the Gore-supported Kyoto Protocol or other similar proposals that would mandate draconian tax and regulatory measures aimed at virtually all human economic activity.
The magazine also features an extensive Q&A with John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel. Here's a sampling from the interview:
THE NEW AMERICAN: As someone who has been in weather broadcasting for pretty much its whole history, are you concerned about global warming?

John Coleman: I'm only concerned about people who are going hysterical about it. How many billions of dollars is our government going to spend to combat something that isn’t real? That has my attention.

THE NEW AMERICAN: Are you saying there hasn’t been any warming?

Coleman: Well, there are absolutely normal climate fluctuations — little ice ages, then warm-ups. Historically the Earth has vacillated through all of these. Solar cycles change dramatically. Ocean currents change. They all have a significant impact on climate.

Finally !!
now if we can only get the mainstream media to cover this like they jumped on Gore's bandwagon, we would get some sensibility back in the world
