Co-Founder of The Weather Channel: Global Warming Is a Complete Hoax

John Coleman, meteorologist and co-founder of The Weather Channel, told Megyn Kelly tonight that he doesn’t believe global warming is real and laughed out loud at anyone who buys into what Al Gore is selling.

Coleman recently wrote an open letter arguing, “There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in the past and there is no reason to fear any in the future.” He told Kelly it’s tough to get a media platform these days when you’re a climate skeptic “ever since Al Gore made it a plank of the Democratic Party.”

He blamed the media for hyping up the supposed threat of global warming and said there are plenty of scientists who have data completely refuting all of the conventional wisdom.

For example, Coleman said, the polar icecaps are not melting drastically as Gore famously warned they were. In fact, “more polar bears are alive and happy today,” as he put it.
