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.

Here, as Watts Up With That? reported, is what he had to say last year when the Guardian ran a piece blaming climate change on ‘elderly white male climate deniers’.

I am old
I am white
I am a denier

Guess they are correct. I will die. So will the others. Then things will be settled.

Got it.

Coleman had a career of two distinguished halves.

The first was as one of the U.S.’s greatest TV meteorologists:

He made gigantic contributions to television, to weather forecasting, and even to the National Weather Service who changed and upgraded many of their methods to accommodate the visionary ideas he had in founding the Weather Channel.

In 1983, Coleman won the American Meteorological Society award for Outstanding Service by a Broadcast Meteorologist. The organization credited Coleman for “his pioneering efforts in establishing a national cable weather channel,” according to the AMS website.

The second was as one of the U.S.’s most cheerfully outspoken critics of the “global warming” scare – which he used his veteran weatherman status to deride at every opportunity.

Here – courtesy of Climate Depot – are some of his greatest hits:

Calls Bill Nye a “pretend scientist in a bow tie.”

Says: “I’m just a dumb old skeptic — a denier as they call me — who ought to be jailed or put to death. I understand how they feel. But you know something? I know I’m right. So I don’t care.”

Trashes Obama-era Federal Climate Report: A ‘total distortion of the data and an agenda-driven, destructive episode of bad science gone berserk’.

Rips his old network for using kids on a scaremongering propaganda video about climate change: “I know without a doubt that there is no significant threat to the future climate of Earth from the industrialized civilization we have created and the drastic climate changes predicted by the Al Gore clan and the UN’s IPCC are not occurring and are based on an invalid theory. But I will not stoop to the use children to promote my position.”

What a guy! He will be much missed.

    “Cover Spain with solar panels and it would supply enough energy for the whole world”
    I heard that from one of The Weather Channel children this morning. Sad.
