    Weather Channel Founder Blasts Network; Claims It Is 'Telling Us What to Think'

    The Weather Channel has lost its way, according to John Coleman, who founded the channel in 1982.



    Coleman told an audience at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change on March 3 in New York that he is highly critical of global warming alarmism.



    “The Weather Channel had great promise, and that’s all gone now because they’ve made every mistake in the book on what they’ve done and how they’ve done it and it’s very sad,” Coleman said. “It’s now for sale and there’s a new owner of The Weather Channel will be announced – several billion dollars having changed hands in the near future. Let’s hope the new owners can recapture the vision and stop reporting the traffic, telling us what to think and start giving us useful weather information.”



    The Weather Channel has been an outlet for global warming alarmism. In December 2006, The Weather Channel’s Heidi Cullen argued on her blog that weathercasters who had doubts about human influence on global warming should be punished with decertification by the American Meteorological Society.



    Coleman also told the audience his strategy for exposing what he called “the fraud of global warming.” He advocated suing those who sell carbon credits, which would force global warming alarmists to give a more honest account of the policies they propose.



    have a feeling this is the opening,” Coleman said. “If the lawyers will take the case – sue the people who sell carbon credits. That includes Al Gore. That lawsuit would get so much publicity, so much media attention. And as the experts went to the media stand to testify, I feel like that could become the vehicle to finally put some light on the fraud of global warming.”



    Earlier at the conference Lord Christopher Monckton, a policy adviser to former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, told an audience that the science will eventually prevail and the “scare” of global warming will go away. He also said the courts were a good avenue to show the science.

    I was in Dallas in December and it was freezing. IT was raining and they were concerned about ice build up on the roads.

    It would be hard to figure it out unless you seen him at parties. He gets down and scoots on the floor like a dog scratching it's arse. :laugh2:

    It's 34 degrees here in Shrevepot, Louisiana on March 3rd.

    But that's because it's getting hotter. It actually makes things colder. Somehow.

    He also smells like rotten eggs and throws rocks.

    He's from Afghanistan, originally.

    Go figure. Maybe some scientist-type can tell us how it's colder when it's getting hotter. :D

    back in college a friend of ours had a bad knee injury trying to chop down a tree or something. it fell and he got caught up in it chopping branches out and twisted it up pretty bad. my point? getting there. : )

    anyway - he couldn't walk on it for a few weeks and would literally drag himself to the restroom and endure the pain to go standing up. something about having to pee like a man being important to him. while we were sitting in the living room someone asked where he was and his brother just looked over and said "beats me, follow the butt-marks on the carpet."
