Grumpy old man claims global warming is a hoax
Here’s an amusing / frustrating video of Weather Channel founder John Coleman trying his best to blast global warming. He’s concerned about how ‘upset’ people are, as though being worried about the environment is slowly killing people’s souls. He also believes things are just fine, and there is no need for concern. It seems his biggest proof is simply that the polar icecaps are not going to melt, despite clear evidence melting in Greenland is increasing, and the Antarctic ice sheets are retreating further every year.
I find these old guys who claim they are scientists but who don’t bother providing compelling evidence to the contrary simply annoying. He points out the only reason there is scientific consensus is because of hype and the duplicity of the scientific community who have a ‘vested interest’ in promoting global warming. While it could be true for some, it’s just not how science works in general. It’s the same argument that Intelligent Design advocates use, and it’s just as effective. As for the consequences, it’s true we don’t yet know what the effects of global warming are, but it certainly seems foolish to believe, as this man does, that there will be none whatsoever.
