Weather Channel boss calls global warming “the greatest scam in history”

Something for the Nobel Prize Committee and the Oscar judges to ponder?
Many news media have been accused of using “man-made global warming” articles and comment pieces to promote anti-Bush, anti-American, anti-capitalism or anti-globalization views.So it comes as little surprise that only those media which haven’t followed this politically correct line are reporting these remarks by the head of The Weather Channel.
Among them is the (London) Daily Telegraph:

The founder of The Weather Channel in the U.S. has described the concept of global warming as “the greatest scam in history” and accused global media of colluding with “environmental extremists” to alarm the public.
“It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM,” John Coleman wrote in an article published on ICECAP, the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, which is known for challenging widely published theories on global warming.

Coleman continued:

“Now their ridiculous manipulated science has been accepted as fact and become a cornerstone issue for CNN, CBS, NBC, the Democratic Political Party, the Governor of California, school teachers and, in many cases, well informed but very gullible environmental conscientious citizens.
“Only one reporter at ABC has been allowed to counter the Global Warming frenzy with one 15 minutes documentary segment.”
He added: “I have read dozens of scientific papers. I have talked with numerous scientists. I have studied. I have thought about it. I know I am correct.
“There is no run away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril.”

The Daily Telegraph’s sister paper, The Sunday Telegraph, last Sunday also ran a lengthy piece titled “The deceit behind global warming.”
