Weather Channel founder terms Gores global warming campaign a hoaxJanuary 30th, 2009 - 1:22 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan.30 (ANI): The founder of the Weather Channel has termed former US Vice-President Al Gores calls for action on global climate change, a “hoax” and “bad science.” John Coleman, now a weatherman at San Diego’’s KUSI, wrote on his station’’s Web site Wednesday that Gore refuses to acknowledge the faulty research on which the idea of global warming is based.
Coleman’’s lengthy scolding came as the former vice president and Nobel Peace Prize winner addressed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and urged lawmakers to pass a bill that would put caps on heat-trapping gases and take the lead on a global climate treaty.
“I am totally convinced there is no scientific basis for any of it,” Fox News quoted Coleman as writing.
“Global Warming. It is the hoax. It is bad science. It is a high jacking of public policy. It is no joke. It is the greatest scam in history,” Coleman adds. (ANI)
