Archive: Coleman Calls Global Warming A Scam

Curious Goings On At Independent TV KUSI 9/51 (digital/UHF) San Diego

In his published Comments About Global Warming, John Coleman starts out with
It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming... It is a SCAM.
Here are the first two paragraphs of weatherman John Coleman's "Bio Page" from the web site of his San Diego employer, KUSI News 9/51:
"Being a TV weatherman in San Diego is an outrageous scam," says KUSI NEWS' 6, 10 and 11 PM weathercaster. Then he laughs. He knows there is plenty of truth in his joke, but he also knows it's a long way from the whole story.

"Actually there is plenty of weather to forecast in San Diego from the morning marine cloud and fog banks to frosty nights and heat waves. There are Pacific winter storms, El Ninos and La Ninas, Santa Anas, SOSA's (Sort Of Santa Anas), WOFs (Walls of Fog) that come ashore following Santa Anas, June Gloom and there are mountain snow storms and summer heat waves. There are droughts and floods. We have plenty of weather. But we also have long spells of wonderful sunny, mild weather. San Diego is famous for our good weather. It's what makes this America's Finest City." That is the meteorological monologue that follows John Coleman's scam joke.
John Coleman's bio page on the KUSI web site is currently online at http://www.kusi.com/about/bios/weather/1838191.html.

Apparently, John Coleman is only kidding, and means the opposite again this time when he says the efforts to minimize human-instigated contributions to global warming are a "scam."

According to John Coleman's biography information, it's known as his "scam joke," which goes, "Being a TV weatherman in San Diego is an outrageous scam." [The weather in San Diego is almost always in the range of great.]

"Actually there is plenty of weather to forecast in San Diego" is the punch line, followed by an in-depth explanation of all of the weather patterns which belie the "scam" label.

Are we supposed to understand that when John Coleman declares global warming is a "scam," he means the opposite again?

Does John Coleman mean that we really should unite with all of the other people of the world to diminish, as best we can, the potential effects on the atmosphere which logically and scientifically might be expected to occur because of the full range of all of the activities of all of the human beings who have ever lived on this planet?

Should we spend our time instead fighting against the idea that we have this obligation to the future populations of Earth? Instead of helping to refine the worldwide efforts to prevent gross human damage to the planet, we should continue to act selfishly, for our own temporary self-interests and indulgences? That we should simply allow ourselves to keep doing everything in the same ways we always have, if it means there is any chance that by doing so we could ruin the lives and threaten the existences of our great-great-great-great grandchildren and theirs?

That we shouldn't start learning to walk greener, because we'll just keep falling down, and by attempting to walk greener we won't learn or accomplish anything else along the way?

Yes, John Coleman, green is about conservation: of the planet and all species, including humans, against the damages caused mainly by the existence of humans; it's only political because it costs money and you have to get the idea of future-cide across to the masses world wide. There is nothing about the green movement which resembles the practices of any church, temple, mosque or cult.


Let's catch up with San Diego's very own, John Coleman:

Comments About Global Warming
By John Coleman
jcoleman@kusi.com

It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming... It is a SCAM.

Some scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long-term scientific data back in the late 1990's to create an illusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental wacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the "research" to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.

Environmental extremists, notable politicians among them, then teamed up with movie, media and other liberal, environmentalist journalists to create this wild "scientific" scenario of the civilization threatening environmental consequences from Global Warming unless we adhere to their radical agenda.

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-minute documentary segment.

I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party.

However, Global Warming, i.e. 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 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 temperatures rise, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern will all fail to occur as predicted, and 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.

The Canadian Broadcasting Company's Cable News Network produced an excellent documentary on Global Warming. It is titled " Doomsday Called Off ". Here are the YouTube URLs to watch it in five parts:

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5

Professor Bob Carter delivered a 35 minute lecture on global warming. If you are in an academic mood, it is excellent. It was recorded and posted in four parts on Youtube. Here are the links:
