John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel Network, claims that Global warming is nothing more than a “scam”, created by scientists who manipulated data to serve their own political ends.

Coleman’s comments, posted on ICECAP, the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, blames “dastardly scientists” who teamed up with their “friends in government” to enact huge bills and laws to draw money to their cause, while teaming up with movie and media environmentalists to create a huge scare campaign.

He says:

In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious. As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling. And, natural cycles and drifts in climate are as much if not more responsible for any climate changes underway. I strongly believe that the next twenty years are equally as likely to see a cooling trend as they are to see a warming trend.
