John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel, thinks Al Gore should be sued for misrepresenting the impact of carbon dioxide, CO2, and selling carbon credits. Here is an exerpt from Fox News about his recent statement:
“Not Fair and Balanced?
Weather Channel founder John Coleman is calling global warming a fraud and says the station he founded needs to stop telling people what to think about climate change. The Business and Media Institute reports Coleman was a speaker at the Heartland Institute’s Climate Change Conference in New York. Coleman was referencing what some call the Weather Channel’s global warming alarmism.
One of its meteorologists suggested two years ago that weathercasters who have doubts about global warming should lose their certification. Coleman advocates suing people who sell carbon credits — including Al Gore — because the attention in the courts could, in his words, “put some light on the fraud of global warming.”
The two-day conference is actually getting quite a bit of media coverage — with stories in the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Sun and many others.”

The trancript of John Coleman’s conversation is listed on Rush Limabaugh’s website. Rush members can listen to it. Here are John Coleman’s remarks:
RUSH: John Coleman, who founded the Weather Channel, wants to sue Algore on this whole business of global warming being a hoax. I have loved John Coleman ever since he used to be the weatherman at Good Morning America. He was on Fox & Friends today, and Steve Doocy said, “Why should Algore be sued?”
COLEMAN: The whole backbone of the global warming “science” is what they called CO2 forcing. This is carbon dioxide, and they say that this little trace compound in the atmosphere — 38 molecules of carbon dioxide out of a hundred thousand molecules in our atmosphere, they say this little trace element — puts the carbon in the air that forces the water vapor to create this uncontrollable global warming. It’s gonna bring this climatic catastrophe.
DOOCY: Right. Right.
COLEMAN: All right, that’s what they’re finding. Now, I don’t believe that’s the way it works at all.
DOOCY: Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm.
COLEMAN: I see absolutely no evidence that CO2, carbon dioxide, is causing any warm-up in temperatures. I don’t think it’s happening. I’m asking the question: If Al Gore knows that CO2 forcing is invalid — isn’t really happening — and he goes ahead and sells these carbon credits for millions of dollars, is he committing financial fraud? That is the question.
RUSH: Doocy says, “Well, John, there’s no disputing the temperature on the planet’s gone up by one degree.” Steve, it’s come down a degree! The whole century gain was wiped out before recent temperature readings, and here’s what Coleman said.
COLEMAN: I dispute that.
DOOCY: You do dispute that!
COLEMAN: I think the whole statistics are somewhat questionable. Where are they measuring this temperature? Who’s measuring it? How are they handling the data?
DOOCY: The whole global warming thing is just a hyped scam?
COLEMAN: Maybe over the last hundred years the temperature on planet Earth went up by close to a degree or so.
COLEMAN: That’s not a big deal. In the last 12 months, the climate on earth has gone down by a full degree. This has been the coldest winter in modern history globally.
RUSH: Amen. John Coleman. I love that guy.
