An Inconvenient Expert

John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, tears into the myth of anthrpogenic global warming with a vengence over at ICECAP.

I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party. However, Global Warming, ie Climate Change, is not about environmentalism or politics. It is not a religion. It is not something you “believe in.” It is science; the science of meteorology. This is my field of life-long expertise. And I am telling you Global Warming is a non-event, a manufactured crisis and a total scam. I say this knowing you probably won’t believe a me, a mere TV weatherman, challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States. So be it.

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. I am incensed by the incredible media glamour, the politically correct silliness and rude dismissal of counter arguments by the high priest of Global Warming.

In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious. As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling. And, natural cycles and drifts in climate are as much if not more responsible for any climate changes underway. I strongly believe that the next twenty years are equally as likely to see a cooling trend as they are to see a warming trend.

Of course, there is no telling how much real damage will have been done to the earth and to real people paying a real price because of the worship of a scam crisis. I have posted about the real damage being done in the name of saving the earth for some time now. There are dozens of such posts, links to reports of the devastation being done to the environment by unscrupulous and mendacious people, here and here. These are not manipulated science, these are reports of the eradication of orangutans, the clear cutting of rainforests, the subjugation of humans, the coming deaths by starvation - all done to "save the planet."

Someday, the people charging ahead and enforcing AGW myth as a driver for public policy will have to answer for what they have done. There will be a lot to answer for.

    I love the part about “challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States”. Let’s take a look at this “Climate Expert”, Al Gore. Gore is a man with very little, if any, scientific training. At most he has taken the required science courses he needed to graduate from high school and college. Before he got into politics, he was a reporter for cripe’s sake! His home state of Tennessee listed him as one of the biggest polluters in the state for years. This is the guy we should look to in order to set worldwide scientific policy?

    And Gore is just the tip of the iceberg. If you peel back the camoflage on most of the groups promoting the Global Warming mantra, you find non-scientists with a political agenda. Most real climate scientists that were involved to begin with have left the movement in disgust and requested that their names not be used anymore in conjunction with the theory. Most real climate scientists will tell you that we have no real idea how much Global Warming is affected by human beings and that the current level of scientific knowledge is insufficient to even explore the idea. Further, they will tell you that there is no real evidence that “Global Warming” is anything other than a natural climatological trend if it exists at all or even that it’s a bad thing if it is real.

    In the meantime, as Gaius pointed out, real damage can be done to the eco-system by people who have no idea of what their attempts at “managing” the environment will be. You can’t seem to get it through the skulls of these eco-nuts that in the environment, to paraphrase one of Newton’s Laws, every action has an unpredictable (to our current level of scientific knowledge) and possibly devastating (for some part of the eco-system) reaction. Many attempts to manage the environment have blown up in the faces of those who tried it.

    Weathermen are climate scientists now? when did this happen I must have missed the memo
