The founder of the Weather Channel, John Coleman, is a senior meteorologist at KUSI in San Diego a Heartland policy advisor who has presented at two of Heartland’s seven International Conferences on Climate Change.
Coleman noted last night something that the enviro-left has been lamenting all through the now-ended presidential debate season: Not once did the words “global warming” or “climate change” — or whatever poll-tested term the alarmist are using these days — cross the lips of the debate moderators or the candidates for president.
Not once. And it’s the first time that happened since Ronald Reagan was running for re-election against Walter Mondale.
There was no mention of “global warming” in any of the three presidential debates this year. This is the first time since 1984 that the topic has not been brought up by one of the moderators or one of the candidates. This is not good news to Al Gore or the thousands of scientists who depend on the global warming scare to trigger the federal research grants that keep them richly employed while so many Americans can’t find a job of any kind. The reality that there is no significant man-made global warming seems to be more and more accepted by voters and politicians.
