John Coleman, a good friend of Heartland and the co-founder of The Weather Channel, was on “The Kelly File” on Fox News Monday night. Megyn Kelly wanted to interview him after viewing the open letter Coleman wrote to UCLA’s Hammer Museum, asking them to offer balance to a one-sided climate change discussion featuring one of the world’s most famous climate alarmists, Michael Mann. The museum declined.
Kelly was obviously charmed by Coleman (he tends to do that) as he explained how “life is good.” The icecaps are not experiencing accellerated melting, neither are the seas rising faster than historical norms, nor are we seeing an increase in strong storms — all predictions Al Gore made in his movie “An Inconvenient Truth.”
There’s a bit of cross-talk, but Coleman noted that Al Gore took only one science class in college, taught by Roger Revelle, and “Al Gore got a ‘D’ in it … and has made a billion dollars on climate change.” It was a 20-second version of the presentation Coleman gave at the Ninth International Conference on Climate Change this past July titled “How the Global Warming Frenzy Began.”
