Weather Channel co-founder: ‘There is no climate crisis’

al gore, you're an idiot, but a rich idiot from the carbon credits scam.......

Weather Channel co-founder: ‘There is no climate crisis’
By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Thursday, October 23, 2014
leading meteorologist who co-founded the Weather Channel has issued an open letter slamming global warming science and arguing that man-made climate change is a myth created to push a political agenda.

“There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in the past, and there is no reason to fear any in the future,” wrote John Coleman, 80, who spent more than 60 years in weather broadcasting, The Daily Mail reported

Mr. Colemanwrote the letter to UCLA’s Hammer Forum, which is expected to hold a Climate Change event Thursday in Los Angeles. He complains that the forum, which suggests that man-made climate change is a scientific fact, is doing people a disservice by not providing the opposite side of the issue.

“Efforts to prove the theory that carbon dioxide is a significant ‘greenhouse’ gas and pollutant causing significant warming or weather effects have failed. There has been no warming over 18 years,” he writes, arguing that there are more than 9,000 other Ph.D. scientists who agree with him.

“Yet at your October 23 Hammer Forum on Climate Change you have scheduled as your only speakers two people who continue to present the failed science as though it is the final and complete story on global warming/climate change. This is [a] major mistake,” he continued. “I urge you to re-examine your plan. It is important to have those who attend know that there is no climate crisis.”

“I am the founder of The Weather Channel and a winner of the American Meteorological Society honor as Broadcast Meteorologist of the Year. I am not a wacko flat Earther. Nor am I a ‘paid shill’ (as has been claimed) of the Koch Brothers. I am a serious professional. I am strongly urging you to reconsider your plan,” Mr. Coleman concluded before directing the reader to the website of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change.

The NIPCC’s role is to offer an second opinion of the evidence reviewed by the United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), The Daily Mail reported.

The two climatologists mentioned.
UCLA's Hammer Museum presents Climatologists Brenda Ekwurzel and Michael Mann to talk about what has and has not been accomplished in reducing CO2 emissions.
Ekwurzel, from the Union of Concerned Scientists. Mann (not the film guy) is interesting; googled him as well as his part in the "Climatic Research Unit email controversy" of a few years ago before the climate conference in Copenhagen (aka "Climategate"). He once took the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to task for their modeling; later he was asked to co-author their next assessment and now they're all chummy. 'S all good, we be buds now.

I'm shocked that a university would stack the deck like that.

So, let's say there is global warming, is it possible that the scientists may be completely guessing on the level and type of effect.

Yes Al Gore is an idiot but what does the following say about the current occupant of the White House.

"Obama strikes deal with China to cut US greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26 percent by 2025... "

In exchange China has agreed to cap their emissions by 2030, sounds like a hell of a deal. Obama is not running for office why must he continue to pander to his base?

Because he was raised poorly, is unqualified to be a leader, and doesn't understand right from wrong.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

Gravity holds atmospheric gasses close to the planet's surface.

The ozone layer is, itself, made up of gas.
