Co-founder of The Weather Channel is a climate change denier

Co-founder of The Weather Channel is a climate change denier

John Coleman, a meteorologist and co-founder of The Weather Channel, said Monday in an interview on Fox News' The Kelly File that he doesn't believe climate change is real.

The media has overstated the supposed problem of climate change, Coleman said, adding that there are many scientists who don't believe in it. "More polar bears are alive and happy today than we've had in a hundred years," Coleman said, refuting Al Gore's claims that polar ice caps are melting. He also told Megyn Kelly that Gore made climate change "a plank of the Democratic Party."

This isn't Coleman's first time speaking out against the "bad, bad science" of climate change, either — he recently wrote an open letter saying there is "little evidence" to support popular claims. "There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in the past, and there is no reason to fear any in the future," Coleman wrote.
