There was a bit of a stormy interview brewing Sunday on “Reliable Sources.”
“CNN has taken a very strong position on global warming that it is a consensus; well there is no consensus in science … science is about facts,” Weather Channel founder John Coleman told host Brian Stelter.
“There is no question about it. Climate change is not happening. There is no significant man-made global warming now. There hasn’t been any in the past, and there’s no reason to expect any in the future. There’s a whole lot of baloney,” an indignant Coleman continued.
Stelter told Coleman they’ll have to agree to disagree: “I do hope viewers are googling the data you’re sharing because I do think it’s skewed, I have to say that.” The host then asked if he thinks The Weather Channel is part of the global warming “conspiracy.”
“They’ve drunk the Kool-Aid,” Coleman surmised.
Following Coleman was Weather Channel CEO David Kenny, who denounced his claims and reiterated his channel’s position that climate change is real.
