Weather Channel Founder: Sue Al Gore to expose Global Warming @ FoxNews
In follow up to the previous post, Weather Channel Founder: Sue Al Gore to expose Global Warming @ Newsbusters, FoxNews has an update on this topic.
A video link is available in the story regarding his appearance at FoxNews about this topic. Here is an excerpt regarding how the debate is buried in the MSM and what has been happening:
Coleman says his side of the global-warming debate is being buried in mainstream media circles.
“As you look at the atmosphere over the last 25 years, there’s been perhaps a degree of warming, perhaps probably a whole lot less than that, and the last year has been so cold that that’s been erased,” he said.
“I think if we continue the cooling trend a couple of more years, the general public will at last begin to realize that they’ve been scammed on this global-warming thing.”
This is supported by another Fox News story, NOAA: Coolest Winter Since 2001, but Still Warmer Than Usual. See NOAA Report.
He shares my feelings about the Weather Channel and how carbon dioxide really impacts our atmosphere.
“You want to tune to the Weather Channel and have them tell you how to live your life?” Coleman said. “Come on.”
He laments the network’s decision to focus on traffic and lifestyle reports over the weather.
“It’s very clear that they don’t realize that weather is the most significant impact in every human being’s daily life, and good, solid, up-to-the-minute weather information and meaningful forecasts presented in such a way that people find them understandable and enjoyable can have a significant impact,” he said.
“The more you cloud that up with other baloney, the weaker the product,” he said.
Coleman has long been a skeptic of global warming, and carbon dioxide is the linchpin to his argument.
“Does carbon dioxide cause a warming of the atmosphere? The proponents of global warming pin their whole piece on that,” he said.
The compound carbon dioxide makes up only 38 out of every 100,000 particles in the atmosphere, he said.
“That’s about twice as what there were in the atmosphere in the time we started burning fossil fuels, so it’s gone up, but it’s still a tiny compound,” Coleman said. “So how can that tiny trace compound have such a significant effect on temperature?
“My position is it can’t,” he continued. “It doesn’t, and the whole case for global warming is based on a fallacy.”
Although there are environmentalists who claims this as fact, they must forget to realize that as humans we breathe out carbon dioxide, too. Are they suggesting we should stop breathing? Probably not.
