You have made this comment twice without any reference or evidence. Would you kindly tell me why you think this is a "hoax"? Its hard for me to imagine how such a world-wide hoax could be managed. 97% of scientists conspiring with little actual reward. What is their motivation? Please explain.
Meteorologist and Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman joined Fox News' Megyn Kelly Monday night to discuss the trials and tribulations facing one of the nation's most persecuted minority groups: climate skeptics.
"Thank you for having me on your program," said Coleman. "A climate skeptic can rarely get on TV ever since Al Gore made it a plank of the Democratic Party ... it's a tough go for people who don't believe in climate change."
Coleman stunned many global warming supporters in October with an open letter he penned claiming that the science behind climate change was "not valid."
“There is no significant man-made global warming at this time," he wrote.
Kelly pointed to several Republicans, like Jon Huntsman Jr., who have argued that those who don't believe in global warming are "nuts."
In response, Coleman blamed the media for spreading inaccuracies.
"It's very difficult for anybody to be against it, because the media has told the nation over and over again, day after day for 20 years that the oceans are rising, the polar bears are dying, the ice is melting, that storms are going to sweep the earth and that we're all going to die of a heat wave," responded Coleman, later assuring viewers that more polar bears are "alive and happy" today than ever before. "This is an incredible, bad, bad science."
John Coleman has been widely discredited. He is not a scientist but rather a TV weather businessman. The statements you quote from him above are just plain wrong! You need to read some actual science. By the way, oceans ARE rising, polar bear habitats (any many other species) habitats ARE being diminished, ice IS melting.
@twelsher. One reason for scientists being motivated to propagate global warming is money. Scientists say they need to do more studies which equals more money. I recently read a study that shows photographic evidence, that the temperature stations, throughout the US, are located near man made sources of heat. You can look that up. When it comes to Democrat politicians, one instance of motivation is Tom Steyer, a billionaire, promised Democrats $100,000,000. in campaign money if they push the global climate change agenda. The ice age is still ending. Recently in the Hudson river, scientists discovered an Indian village from 3,000 years ago. Its been under water for 3,000 years. Also, look up Patrick Moore a Greenpeace founder.
Thank you for your response (nine months later :-)) The important thing here is the science not the politics or greed. The laws of chemistry and physics have no politics. The basic science of this was developed starting in the early 19th century by scientists from different countries. They had no politics. The data collected since then has confirmed their hypotheses. The temperature sensor issue you mention is not significant because scientists know how to either compensate for local heating in their analysis or not use a given sensor. Patrick Moore has been pretty much discredited. He doesn't actually do science anymore but rather shows up on Hannity to debate lightweight non-scientist journalists. Let me give you someone to look-up, Katharine Hayhoe, evangelical Christian and climate scientist. Could add a lot more but I not sure that your next response won't be nine months from now. :-)
I don't visit this site often, I just saw this yesterday, 8/29. Discredited by? The people that disagree with him? Politics and money IS involved now, doesn't matter what happened in the 19th century, it is all tainted now. http://www.cfact.org/2014/03/18/top-s...
Look, it seems you have decided to believe what this man says in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. If you choose to live in a bubble no one can stop you. By linking to CFACT you show that you don't want to look outside your bubble. It takes a combination of courage and curiosity to honestly address this issue. I took 2 1/2 years studying this issue before I decided to act. During that time I read all of the denier literature. By the way I have doctorate in Chemical Physics and worked for Bell Labs for 25 years. I know good science when I see it. I also know cherry picking and distortion when I see it. I urge you to have a more open mind. You have nothing to lose. By the way, there IS a way to combat CO2 emissions AND help the economy. Its called Carbon Fee and Dividend. Check it out at citizensclimatelobby.org. I wish you well.
I disagree with above comment whos saying its hoax. global working is actually happening .. You can read this book .. https://www.amazon.com/Climate-Change... .. it has clear description . moreover you can use amazon coupon to get discount here
