John Coleman shocks global warming supporters, ‘science not valid’

John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked scientists and global warming (climate change) supporters saying there is “little evidence” and that this has become a political agenda item not backed by the scientific facts.

In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC) Coleman writes that “The ocean is not rising significantly. The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number. Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing). I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid.”

Coleman said he based many of his views on the findings of the NIPCC, a non-governmental international body of scientists aimed at offering an “independent second opinion of the evidence reviewed by the IPCC.”

“There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in the past and there is no reason to fear any in the future,” Coleman writes. “Efforts to prove the theory that carbon dioxide is a significant greenhouse gas and pollutant causing significant warming or weather effects have failed.

“There has been no warming over 18 years.” 

The IPCC still claim that their research shows that man-made global warming will lead to extreme weather events becoming more frequent and unpredictable.

limate expert William Happer, from Princeton University, supported Mr Coleman’s claims.

“No chemical compound in the atmosphere has a worse reputation than CO2, thanks to the single-minded demonisation of this natural and essential atmospheric gas by advocates of government control and energy production,” added William Happer, from Princeton University in support of Coleman.

“The incredible list of supposed horrors that increasing carbon dioxide will bring the world is pure belief disguised as science.”

In 2010 a high-level inquiry by the InterAcademy Council found there was “little evidence” to support the IPCC’s claims about global warming.

    If CO2 is the culprit we need to be defending the planet against then why not just do the one thing that will perform miracles for the environment and stop all of the idiotic hand wringing? Plants need CO2, right?

    What plant is the largest and needs the most CO2? TREES. Just go around replanting all of the trees that have been cut down all around the world. What’s so very hard about that that NONE of the bloody over educated idiot scientists that cannot do anything without over complicating matters?

    Years ago, I had the opportunity to join in in the foolishness and just duplicate the failures of a bunch of lab rats that couldn’t see past the figures in their notebooks. 25 years of stupidity by people that were supposed to be some of the smartest people in the country that were trying to germinate Bald Cypress seeds in laboratory conditions.

    Bald Cypress seeds are covered with a sticky brown pitch that is all but impossible to wash of, once it gets on your hands. These bright sparks used every noxious chemical in their arsenal to clean the stubborn pitch off of the seeds in their efforts to grow them. None of the seeds ever sprouted. Go figure.

    At the time, all I had for an education was a GED. But, I had been employed in various positions that required me to solve problems by the use of common sense. Common sense told me that the use of chemical solvents to clean the sticky pitch off of the seeds was about as natural as using nylon thread to make a spider web.

    If you want to make seeds sprout, then you have to create an environment that causes the seeds to do what you want them to do. Right? Obviously, the solvents were not part of the cycle that resulted in the growth of Bald Cypress trees. The solvents were killing the seeds embryos. DUH!

    I set up a small reproduction of a swamp to work out a theory that the pitch was in fact part of the process that caused the seeds to sprout. Within days, I had more Cypress seedlings than I had pots to put them in. Turns out, the pitch was photosensitive and a necessary part of the germination process.

    I was fired from my position in that lab for insubordination, since i had been instructed to choose any one of the large stack of lab notebooks, duplicate the failure and throw everything away. Instead, I saved an entire species of tree from extinction. Profit, not the protection of the environment is the driving force behind most of the research being done today.

    Just like the time I worked on a soil warming measurement study that was shut down when we filed a report that showed that cutting down trees increased atmospheric temperatures in the clear cut areas. Again, DUH! No trees to shield the soil from direct sun light causes the soil to get hot. The heated soil then warms the air immediately above it. Increase the clear cut area and then there is a corresponding greater increase temperature rise in the atmosphere.

    The easy solution to the problem of global warming is to PLANT MORE TREES!! What’s so very complicated about that? I was only a lab tech with a high school education when I figured all of this out.

    John Coleman has minimal qualifications and no evidence to back up his opinions. He has no educational background in either meteorology or climatology. His degree is in Journalism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Coleman_(news_weathercaster)

    His contribution as cofounder of the Weather Channel lasted one year before he had a “falling out” and left the Weather Channel. (Over 30 years ago.) The falling out included a lawsuit which he apparently lost.

    As for the Weather Channel itself:

    The Weather Channel Position Statement on Global Warming

    “These observations, together with computer model simulations and historical climate reconstructions from ice cores, ocean sediments and tree rings all provide strong evidence that the majority of the warming over the past century is a result of human activities.”
