John Coleman, a founder of the Weather Channel, appeared on CNN to reiterate his stance that “climate change is not happening.”
The veteran weather forecaster told CNN’s “Reliable Sources” that the news network was promoting an inaccurate view on the issue.
“CNN has taken a very strong position on global warming, that it is a consensus,” he said. “Well, there is no consensus in science. Science isn’t a vote, science is about facts.”
“And if you get down to the hard, cold facts, there’s no question about it: Climate change is not happening, there is no significant, man-made global warming now, there hasn’t been any in the past, and there’s no reason to expect any in the future. There’s a whole lot of baloney.”
Coleman said climate change has become part of the Democratic Party platform, adding that he regretted that the issue has become “political instead of scientific.”
“But the science is on my side,” he declared.
Challenged on the assertion that “97 percent of climate scientists” are in agreement on the issue, Coleman charged that the figure was “manipulated.”
Since the Obama’s government only funds scientists who put out results “supporting the global warming hypothesis,” he claimed, “they don’t have any choice.”
