John Coleman, The Weather Channel Founder, Dies at Age 83

Posted by Chris in Tampa on 1/21/2018, 8:09 pm

I didn't know he thought global warming was a hoax.

"Over the past 15 years, Coleman became a vocal doubter of human contributions to climate change and opposed actions to address the challenge. As recently as December 2017, he wrote, 'There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has not been any in the past and there is no reason to fear any in the future.'"

"Coleman's stance on climate change was far out of step with mainstream science. In 2014, the Weather Channel distanced itself from its founder on the issue. '[H]e hasn't been with us in 31 years,' said then-chief executive David Kenny on CNN. 'So he's not really speaking for the Weather Channel in any way today.'"
