​​​​​​​The experts explain the global warming myth: John Coleman

John Stewart Coleman (October 15, 1934 – January 20, 2018) was an American television weatherman.

The only Proof of the IPPC Hypothesis was the Computer Model Prediction, which went the oposite direction.  So there is now no Evidence to Support the Claim of Significant Man-Made Global Warming

Noam, I grew up in Chicago watching John Coleman forecast the weather on WBBM-TV. Though he had a degree in journalism, it would be a stretch to view weather forecasting a journalistic endeavor. In Chicago many recognized him as a competent and entertaining weather personality (today he would be unqualified - he wouldn't have the legs).

Growing up in Texas left an imprint on John, a pro-oil sensibility which later came into direct conflict with science. As many of us are prone to do, he refused to sacrifice beliefs he had learned early in life even when they were contradicted by overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

RIP John, you and your oil industry had their moment.

Me too Bob... along with Fahey Flynn, John Drury, Joel Daly etc... Funny. don't remember the sports guy.

Did not know that he had founded the Weather Channel and did not know that he was an Illini.  He was entertaining but did not even come close to weatherman legend - Tom Skilling - as far as knowledge.

I'll put my stake in the countless scientists and scientific organizations that are continuing to study and find evidence in the changing climate and man's role in this evolution (https://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/) before I will the fringe scientists who disagree. I'm of course always open to new information, as that is what the scientific method is all about, but until the scientists who live that evidence-based study (and are way more informed and intelligent than I am!) reverse course the only solution is to stay the course in preventing climate change. The stakes are too high to hedge

Matt Chester - Okay, you exposed your true colors - man-kind is sooo small compared to God's Green Earth that there is no match between those "contributions".  The sun is what makes or breaks the weather, not man-kind.

The public has been lied to for over 30 years now.  NASA Jim Hansen lied to Congress in 1988.  The IPCC (a UN agency) lied in 1989...

"The public has been lied to for over 30 years now.  NASA Jim Hansen lied to Congress in 1988.  The IPCC (a UN agency) lied in 1989..."

Keep saying that, Noam, as Gulf Coast hurricanes become more frequent and powerful - just like Jim Hansen said they would. Harvey and Imelda are only the beginning.

It's somehow fitting that Houston, birthplace of the oil industry, will be among the first to perish from the environmental impacts of its own prosperity.
