Global Warming a Hoax?!?!?!

John Coleman is the founder of the Weather Channel.  His background is kind of sketchy from what I can find other than his being a TV meteorologist for some time.  There is not much information on him.  However, he recently has created a lot of stir with his comments that global warming is “the greatest scam in history.”  Those are big words from a guy whose profession is guessing what the weather is going to be tomorrow and causing me to take my goulashes and umbrella to work on a day that sees no rain (if you have seen the movie The Weatherman you will laugh; because it’s true).  Coleman says of global warming:

It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in [sic] allusion of rapid global warming.

I myself tend not to jump on board the global warming kool-aid wagon that offers us commoners to drink a mystical beverage that will take us non-elites to a special place and save the planet behind the leadership of a professional politician who is now worth over $100M thanks to his exploitation of people using his former office to gain credibility and notoriety (whew! long sentence).  However, I do think that this guy’s qualifications are a bit lax if he wants to make such claims.  Kind of like Robert Redford sharing his wisdom about Mormonism.  I will succumb to the temptation however out of fun and admit that I like what he says, even though his details may be a bit scanty.  Give his article a read below:
