CNN Slammed by John Coleman over Climate Change FRAUD
January 21, 2018 - RIP - John Coleman, former ABC 7 Chicago weatherman and Weather Channel founder, dies at age 83
November 2, 2014
John Coleman appeared on CNN's Reliable Sources with host Brian Stelter, after writing an open letter to UCLA denying the existence of anthropogenic global warming and receiving air time on Fox News to “express his views about climate change to their national audiences.” Coleman told Stelter that “CNN has taken a very strong position on global warming that it is a consensus. Well there is no consensus in science. Science isn't a vote. Science is about facts,” and that he was “terribly disappointed” by his former network, The Weather Channel, because it “has bought into [climate change]. But so has all the media. That's no big surprise.”
Coleman notes that he is “not a wacko flat-Earther,” nor is he “a 'paid shill' (as has been claimed) of the Koch Brothers,” concluding his letter with a link to Heartland's Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) website.
Coleman's open letter to UCLA was sent to numerous local television stations in the Los Angeles area, as well as the Los Angeles Times.
Coleman produced a special report for KUSI-TV, entitled Global Warming: The Other Side. The program suggests that Global Warming is a scam and presents what Colemen contends is evidence of a deliberate manipulation of world temperature data by NASA and other groups.
