RIP John Coleman—Weather Channel Co-Founder Who Called Climate Change ‘Baloney’

John Coleman’s Weather Channel days.

John Coleman, the cheerful, politically incorrect and fearless co-founder of the Weather Channel, has died at 83, surrounded by family at his Las Vegas home.

The bad news is that he lived long enough to see his creation turn into yet another propaganda arm of the Climate Industrial Complex churning out #fakenews stories like this one.

The good news is that he just didn’t give a damn.

Consensus Fail: Vast New Geothermal Climate Impacts Ignored

Independent scientists argue energy at the Earth’s interior is a fundamental—and often overlooked—driver of climate change and oceanic temperatures. 

The massive increase in the number of underwater volcanoes detected in the last 26 years, creating many new islands around the globe, undermines the pseudoscience of man-made global warming.

Moreover, a rise in extraterrestrial energy at the earth’s interior also explains an increase in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Heat from Earth’s interior triggers ice sheet slide towards sea

Greenland’s ice sheet is becoming smaller and smaller. The melting taking place is at an increased strength and speed that no models have previously predicted.

Today, in the esteemed journal Scientific Reports, researchers from the Arctic Research Centre, Aarhus University, and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources present results that, for the first time, show that the deep bottom water of the north-eastern Greenland fjords is being warmed up by gradually lost from the Earth’s interior.

How NOAA/NASA Doctored Temperature Data To Get Record Warm Years

The topic of how the US temperature record has been massively altered in recent years has been well covered by Tony Heller, myself, and others in the past.

Nevertheless, it is worth summarising again.

In 1999, James Hansen, Reto Ruedy, Jay Glascoe and Makiko Sato of GISS published a paper, “GISS analysis of surface temperature change”, which included this graph of the US temperature record at that time.

Lib Media confirms: 2017 cooling proves global warming

What are you to do if you are a liberal journalist and you get the news that 2017 was actually cooler than the year before it, 2016?

You can’t write a headline that reads, “Earth getting cooler,” because the enviro-nuts will storm your offices with pitchforks, and Al Gore, the grand imam of the environmentalist doomsday cult, will issue a fatwa ordering that steps be taken to stop you from exhaling carbon dioxide.

New Study Just Threw Cold Water On Worst-Case Global Warming Scenarios

A new study by a team of climatologists “all but rules out” the worst-case “doomsday” U.N. climate change scenarios, significantly narrowing the range of the possible temperature increases, while also eliminating the low-end predictions.

The study’s findings, said one leading expert, are “reassuring,” though scientists still warn that potentially “significant” changes are coming.

“Our study all but rules out very low and very high climate sensitivities,” University of Exeter’s Peter Cox, the study’s lead author, said.

This Media Narrative Didn’t Get A ‘Fake News Award,’ But Should Have

President Donald Trump presented his “Fake News Awards” on Wednesday night for 11 news stories that proved to be less than accurate, but there is one media narrative the White House left out.

For months, the media perpetuated a rumor the Trump administration would delete or take offline climate science data that was inconvenient to its agenda. That didn’t happen.

Looking to the sun to create hydrogen fuel

When Lawrence Livermore scientist Tadashi Ogitsu leased a hydrogen fuel-cell car in 2017, he knew that his daily commute would change forever. There are no greenhouse gases that come out of the tailpipe, just a bit of water vapor.

The market for hydrogen cars is growing. According to a recent report by the California Energy Commission and the California Air Resources Board, the state is now home to 31 hydrogen fuel stations.

The next challenge is making hydrogen fuel cost-effective and sustainable.

Glaciers Disappearing During NASA’s Coldest Years On record

One of the most popular claims made by climate alarmists is that retreating glaciers are evidence of global warming.

This claim is utter nonsense – glaciers have been retreating for 20,000 years (when Chicago was under a mile of ice) and glaciers were rapidly retreating during NASA’s official coldest years on record.

Roy Spencer on the Unsettled Science of Climate Change: A Primer

“Climate researchers … have a pretty good understanding of how the climate system works on average, but the reasons for small, long-term changes in the climate system are still extremely uncertain.”

“The total amount of CO2 humans have added to the atmosphere in the last 100 years has upset the radiative energy budget of the Earth by only 1%. How the climate system responds to that small ‘poke’ is very uncertain. The IPCC says there will be strong warming, with cloud changes making the warming worse. I claim there will be weak warming, with cloud changes acting to reduce the influence of that 1% change.”

Global Temperature In 2017: Not A Resurgence Of Global Warming

It is clear that 2017 was a very warm year.

Tomorrow, NOAA, NASA and the UK Met Office will announce by how much.

Global temperature data for the last 12 months refutes the idea that the warmth of 2017 was due to a resurgence of global warming. In fact, the world has been cooling. –David Whitehouse, The GWPF Observatory, 17 January 2018
