Announced on Fox News that the founder of the Weather Channel wants to sue Al Gore for fraud, hoping a legal debate will settle the global-warming debate once and for all.
Oh no, the world's heating up - we're all going to die
(unless we give Al Gore loads of money)
John Coleman, who founded the cable network in 1982, suggests suing for fraud proponents of global warming, including Al Gore, and companies that sell carbon credits.
"Is he committing financial fraud? That is the question," Coleman said. "Since we can't get a debate, I thought perhaps if we had a legal challenge and went into a court of law, where it was our scientists and their scientists, and all the legal proceedings with the discovery and all their documents from both sides and scientific testimony from both sides, we could finally get a good solid debate on the issue. I'm confident that the advocates of 'no significant effect from carbon dioxide' would win the case."
"As you look at the atmosphere over the last 25 years, there's been perhaps a degree of warming, perhaps probably a whole lot less than that, and the last year has been so cold that that's been erased," he said. "I think if we continue the cooling trend a couple of more years, the general public will at last begin to realize that they've been scammed on this global-warming thing."
Coleman appeared at the recent 2008 International Conference on Climate Change in New York, where he called global warming a scam and lambasted the cable network he helped create. He has long been a skeptic of global warming, and carbon dioxide is the linchpin to his argument.
"Does carbon dioxide cause a warming of the atmosphere? The proponents of global warming pin their whole piece on that," he said. "The compound carbon dioxide makes up only 38 out of every 100,000 particles in the atmosphere. That's about twice as what there were in the atmosphere in the time we started burning fossil fuels, so it's gone up, but it's still a tiny compound, so how can that tiny trace compound have such a significant effect on temperature? My position is it can't. It doesn't, and the whole case for global warming is based on a fallacy."
The GOS says: Good. And when they've successfully sued him, why don't they do us all a favour and shoot the bastard?
