John Coleman's TV Special Tonight – Global Warming: The Other Side

UPDATE: See

John Coleman’s hourlong news special “Global Warming – The Other Side” now online, all five parts here

Global Warming: The Other Side

Is civilization doomed because of man-made global warming? You’ve been told your carbon footprint could lead to skyrocketing temperatures, melting ice caps, dying polar bears and “superstorms.”

But there is another side to the story, and you can see it on KUSI this Thursday night.

KUSI meteorologist, John Coleman, has an amazing story to tell of science gone bad, and new revelations as the “climategate” scandal comes to the United States.

Join us on Thursday, January 14th, at 9pm, Pacific Time, for the special report that will explode the global warming myth!

I’m told there will also be internet video, and I’ll make it available here as soon as it is posted.

I’m in LA, and don’t think I get this channel. So that would be great if you do post the video. I’ll make sure to put it on my site.
Thanks Watts Up With That? John Coleman, Lord Monckton and everyone else who isn’t letting this issue die like the politicians and media want.
Why’s this so vitally important? Truth.
If we can be lied to for years about “global warming” from so many, what else are we not being told? Ever since this climate scandal has broken out (though I’ve always been skeptical about this), I research and look even deeper at every issue politicians, the media, etc. make sound important. While I could tell from Gore’s refusal to debate and his hyperbolic “cities are going to sink in five years” talk that it was BS, I really had no idea how many people have been involved in promoting this BS with falsified info. I’m now fully aware.
So thanks for keeping this issue going.

It is becoming very difficult for the MSM to cater to the tree huggers and block inconvenient reports.

The Meteorologists Strike Back.

David Segesta

That’s wonderful news! We don’t get that station here. I hope you will be able show it at WUWT.

Eddie

Lets just hope that it’s not just another AWG spin video.

M.A.DeLuca

Good work, John Coleman! I look forward to your report.

Chris Clark

Looks interesting. I think the BBC will show this the day Hell freezes over (now that would be what I call climate change).

Greg, San Diego, CA

I get that station and will be viewing the show tonight. Thanks to John Coleman and KUuuuuSI (those in San Diego will know why I wrote KUSI that way – John says it that way on his weather segment of the news) for continuing the good fight against the folly of AGW.

Steve in SC

I suspect that not much will be new to regular readers of WUWT or CA.
However, the general public pretty much believes what comes out of the idiot box so getting it out to the public is a good thing. I look forward to viewing a Youtube of this piece.

Durn,
Ray beat me to it. Good on ya Ray.
NASA Caught in Climate Data Manipulation; New Revelations Headlined on KUSI-TV Climate Special
http://www.spaceref.com/news/viewpr.html?pid=30000
Climate researchers have discovered that NASA researchers improperly manipulated data in order to claim 2005 as “THE WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD.” KUSI-TV meteorologist, Weather Channel founder, and iconic weatherman John Coleman will present these findings in a one-hour special airing on KUSI-TV on Jan.14 at 9 p.m. A related report will be made available on the Internet at 6 p.m. EST on January 14th at http://www.kusi.com.

M. Simon (10:01:17) :
Maybe I did but you certainly managed to find the details of what he will talk about…
Since NASA-GISS has been “correcting” the data for urban island effect, they have been manipulating the data to suit their agenda. Let’s hope with Coleman’s special we will not only have one foot in the door, but our whole body of climate realism…
“Global Warming, the other side” … global cooling?

Indiana Bones

By the time the fourth wheel falls off – can we not expect the wagon to fall?

James F. Evans

Should ABC, NBC, and CBS actually do investigative journalism and present full-throated “the other side” of the story programs, this Global Baloney would be toast.
But I’m not holding my breath for the major broadcast companies to do the right thng.
Why?
Follow the money…
At the same time their viewership is going down the drain.
Maybe they should wake-up and smell the coffee.

Joe Crawford

I think there has been a lot of pent-up frustration among many scientists and engineers with the religion of AGW. Now that the first chink has developed in the protective armor the flood gates are about to open. It’s just a ‘crying shame’ that a small group (cabal) of true believers has by ‘careful’ data selection and ‘questionable’ data analysis screwed up the science to the extent that if AGW happens to be true, the science to determine the extent of our damage to the climate has been set back tens of years.

Kitefreak

I’ve seen John Coleman interviewed before and he gets his points across really well and with just enough emotion to let you know he really believes strongly in what he is talking about, but without going to far.
He comes across as a man you would trust. I hope loads of people who believe in AGW but have never really thought about it – just accepted it – watch this.

UK Sceptic

A link to the video would be a great boon for us Brits too. Thanks for the heads up. 😀

Bernie

I hope they ran their analysis by some other folks. The AGW attack dogs will be out in force to rip them apart – so let’s hope they have an ironclad analysis.

Thank you, John Coleman, for having the courage to speak out.
In addition to getting to the BOTTOM of this mess, can we also identify scoundrels at the TOP that poured our tax funds into fraud and purposeful deceit of the public?
I understand that Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone, President of the National Academy of Sciences, is a climatologist. There is another person that might be able to answer the above question:
I met Dr. Cicerone and Congressman Alan B. Mollohan, Chair of the Subcommittee on Appropriations for Science of the US House of Representatives on Thursday, 26 June 2008 at the NAS Building, 2101 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC.
Again, thanks, John, for having the courage to speak out!
With kind regards,
Oliver K. Manuel
Former NASA PI for Apollo

climate progress just posted claim on hotest day year etc using NASA GISS records.
It says they deleted their datahere:

NASA caught in data manipulation.

I watched John Coleman religiously growing up in Chicago. He was on ABC, channel 7. Chicago has been lucky to have such excellent meteorologists like John Coleman & Tom Skilling who take their jobs very seriously and avoid being being political.

rbateman

Joe Crawford (10:36:50) :
They have done far more damage than 10 yrs.
It will take an army of thousands to go through printed media looking for the reported observations of the times to ascertain the data.
In instances where the temperatures were not recorded in town newspapers, they are lost forever.
30 years ago we had a great dataset.
Today, we have a dataset disaster.
Barbarians have struck.

Kath

“Indiana Bones (10:24:03) :
By the time the fourth wheel falls off – can we not expect the wagon to fall?”
I have this cartoon image in my mind of a wild-west style “AGW” wagon with all 4 wheels missing. Supporting each corner are MSM characters huffing and puffing as they attempt to keep the wagon moving.

Gary Hladik

Michele (09:09:53) : ‘If we can be lied to for years about “global warming” from so many, what else are we not being told?’
1) The environment in the developed countries is improving, not degrading.
2) Fossil fuels are still abundant and accessible.
3) The Earth is not losing 40,000 (or 10,000, or even 1,000) species a year.
4) “Yes we can” feed a growing population.
5) Poverty, not development, is the true enemy of Gaia, and government bureaucracy is the enemy of development.
6) Whatever a government “gives” to its people, it first has to take from its people. Whatever power it has to do “good” is also the power to do bad.
That’s just off the top of my head. No doubt other WUWT readers can come up with even better lists.

David Madsen

One of the nice things is that KUSI is an independent TV station in San Diego. So it can, and has, marched to the beat of it’s own drum. I grew up watching John Coleman’s Weather Forecasts. Unfortunately, since I relocated (albeit reluctantly) to the LA area, I won’t be able to watch his report live. I will be eagerly anticipating the weblink to the video.
And all of you that watch this report, if you think he’s pretty old, you should see how he ends his forecast on Friday nights. “It’s FRIDAAAAYYYY!!!!!” he shouts and leaps up into the air spinning around and runs out of the studio. It’s great.

James F. Evans (10:31:07) :
Victory is not ours yet. See ‘Atomic Doomsday Clock’ here in WUWT…it seems conspiration began back in 1945…

Benjamin

“I’m told there will also be internet video, and I’ll make it available here as soon as it is posted.”
Thanks, Anthony. I don’t think KUSI gets out as far as I am from San Diego, and I just CAN’T miss this!

i look forward to the video, and hope to link to it!

Steve Sloan

John Coleman was a sort of zanie weatherman in chicago for about 20 years.
He retired and went on to found “The Weather Channel”.
Recently he has been very critical of The Weather Channel and meteorologist whose name escapes me; I thing it was Heidi Clem or something like that.
Coleman no longer has a financial interest in the Weather Channel.
I live in Wisconsin so I look forward to seeing this here at WUWT.

James Sexton

You mean they lied???? How can this be? There is/was a consensus!!!!!

u.k.(us)

not sure how old this is, but here is a previous coleman video debunking AGW. hope the link works.

Was excited to watch for a second. THen I realized it was on some random channel that I have never heard of. What is KUSI? I live in Canada and get many American networks but I’ve never even heard of that one. Dammit, everytime these type of programs are on, they end up on non mainstream channels.

In American television broadcasting, any three or four letter call sign beginning with a K (west of the mississippi) or W (east) is licensed by the FCC and is a local tv or radio station that typically belongs to one of the major tv or radio networks, although there are independent stations, like KUSI, which serves the San Diego market. Independence is not necessarily a factor in judging its credibility. It is better to look a the company that owns the station and what they are about.

“6) Whatever a government “gives” to its people, it first has to take from its people.” + admin. fees, processing fees, shipping & handling, insurance, palm greasing, etc.

“Looks interesting. I think the BBC will show this the day Hell freezes over (now that would be what I call climate change).”
Many people in England believe hell has frozen over given the snowy, thoroughly Canadian conditions now being inflicted on them under the guise of “global warming”
I say, cue the BBC . . 🙂

“Michele (09:09:53) : ‘If we can be lied to for years about “global warming” from so many, what else are we not being told?’”
There’s a book about that and it’s The Skeptical Environmentalist by Björn Lomborg. He confronts data with the never-ending litany of the media. All aspects of it.

“Global Warming, the other side” … global cooling?

Now don’t start alarmism in the opposite direction. There’s no global anything going on except global stupidity. In the past 9000 years we haven’t seen anything outside the range of natural variability as we understand it. It gets warm in some places, cool in others, yet other places remain relatively static. The warms and cools move about with the oceans and jet streams. Even the sat temp series are averages, which is very misleading as to the temperature of each little region on the planet.

Sponge Rob Square Head

Yeah looks interesting. Also interesting is the TV show I’m watching right now on National Geographic (in the UK) – they are talking of a coming ice age!

Well, it looks like an early release of the press release has already happened. (That link to http://www.spaceref.com/news/viewpr.html?pid=30000 above)
Guess I don’t need to post it now. Also, it includes a pointer to the pdf from Joseph D’Aleo over at Icecap:
http://icecap.us/images/uploads/NOAAroleinclimategate.pdf
I had put up a “teaser” to one of the graphs here:
http://chiefio.wordpress.com/2010/01/13/ghcn-does-unadjusted-mean-cooked/
Which shows the far past of Central Park being 3 F COLDER in the NOAA / NCDC GHCN “UN-adjusted” data than it is in the real raw data. Now just why you would want to put a 3 F slope toward warming in the present (via making the past 3 F colder) is a question of motivation; and I can’t speak to that, only to the data and what the data say.
What the data say to me is that even the “UNadjusted” data are too “adjusted” to be trusted. We must step further up stream to get usable data and simply bypass NOAA if we are going to have any idea what our temperature history really has been. Otherwise we’re just stressing over 1/10 C “anomalies” in data with 3 F “un- adjustments”…
So while you wait for the video, you can take a look at the report behind it.
And once again WUWT is a bit ahead of the pack …

” Chris Clark (09:46:33) :

…The BBC might show a program like this when all the old men who have been pumping out their hysterical “man-made global warming” lying propaganda since “The Weather Machine” in 1971 have finally died, after which their grandchildren will at last be able to know something about the truth from the British Brainwashing Corporation.
Until then, forget it.

I wonder how long it will be until Al Gore, and leading politicians will start travelling around the world (eating Caviar) and warn us about the coming man(n)-made Ice Age?
One year?

I thing it was Heidi Clem
Rumors are she changed her name:
Heidi D. Cline

NYT: Insurance Group Says Stolen E-Mails Show Risk in Accepting Climate Science
But Detlefsen’s letter says the “e-mails show that a close-knit group of the world’s most influential climate scientists actively colluded to subvert the peer-review process … manufactured pre-determined conclusions through the use of contrived analytic techniques; and discussed destroying data to avoid government freedom-of-information requests.”

Guardian: UN should be sidelined in future climate talks, says Obama official
Pershing did not exclude the UN from future negotiations. But he repeatedly credited the group of leading economies headed by America for moving forward on the talks, including on finance and developing green technology..

naturally MSM has not been covering the following. guess if they did, it might encourage other interested parties to join in!
Capital Press: Cattlemen fight EPA with ‘Climategate’
A national beef group is invoking the so-called “Climategate” controversy as it challenges a recent U.S. government ruling on climate change…
“We are taking a position that we do not believe the science with regard to alleged manmade climate change is there,” Thies said. “The EPA has a responsibility to conduct a rigorous scientific analysis and look at all the science out there instead of just cherry-picking certain studies that agree with its position about manmade climate change.”
The cattle group points to Climategate, in which critics allege that e-mails stolen from Great Britain’s University of East Anglia show bias and manipulation of data by scientists on the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
The fact that the EPA relied on some of the IPCC’s data to make its finding makes the ruling questionable, Thies said.

Nice image, but in fact WE are carrying the wagon, thanks to our tax dollars. The AGW wagon will stop only when (a) we run out of money (b) we get rid of the thieves, wreckers, liars, and cap & traitors that are spending us to disaster.

Martin Brumby

OT but not entirely.
Yesterday our beloved provincial government in Westminster debated “Climate Security”.
see:- http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200910/cmhansrd/cm100113/debtext/100113-0014.htm#10011369000001
I’m not expecting anyone to read all this (it prints on 44 pages of A4) but would just like to make the following points.
You would go a long way to find a bunch of more complacent, self congratulatory, true believing AGW worshiper clowns than these.
They bicker, scoring cheap political points about who might be most to blame for the highly tenuous state of the Country’s energy supplies (and the Government even tries to bluff their way past that).
But my reason for posting this is to see how many elephants in the chamber readers here can spot, which NO-ONE mentions in the debate!
I’ll start you off:-
No mention of the ‘real’ government in Brussels that actually controls several aspects of Britains energy policy.
No mention of Climategate
No suggestion from anyone that it might be good to check out whether there is a connection between the extreme cold spell, the total lack of “Global Warming” and the fact that Corbyn and Bastardi can forecast weather but the £170 million a year MET office can’t get it right 24hrs ahead.
No mention of the fact that their own regulator is now saying that the average domestic heating bill which has doubled to £1250 per year will increase to £5000 per year at the end of the decade and that 50% of the population will be in “fuel poverty”.
No mention of the fact that Carbon Capture & Storage has NEVER been demonstrated on a large scale (and will achieve nothing anyway).
No mention of the fact that (just like last winter’s freezing period), when demand was at its highest, Big Wind was generating nothing.
Oh, wait. Simon Hughes, the Lib dem Spokesperson says (page 5, I think)
“The Secretary of State confirmed that we have experienced the highest demand ever. That demand was met in the last week, as official reports confirm, from various sources, with 45 per cent. of our electricity output coming from coal, 37 per cent. from gas and 15 per cent. from nuclear, with a small proportion from wind. So Britain, thank goodness, has diversity of supply.”
I really like the “small proportion from wind”. As he was quoting the other figures, can their be any doubt that he was well aware that the actual figure was 0.2 per cent? He must have known and so must many others there in the Chamber. How dishonest can you get? but the only real points made about Big Wind is that we need much more of it and lets criticise the other parties for not promoting it vigorously enough!
There are several other hefty tuskers there in the Chamber. But I’ll leave it to other readers to point to them.
And people got upset about expenses fiddles? Give me a machine gun…..

Great work. Thanks.

This is wonderful. IPCC is a fraud, especially since new and much better science has now come to light. You can find it on google, by searching for
A Really Inconvenient Truth, by Dan Miller. It’s almost an hour long, but you’ll learn just what those IPCC scientists are hiding from us!

ALso interviewed on tonights program:
In a new report, computer expert E. Michael Smith and Certified Consulting Meteorologist Joseph D’Aleo discovered extensive manipulation of the temperature data by the U.S. Government’s two primary climate centers: the National Climate Data Center (NCDC) in Ashville, North Carolina and the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) at Columbia University in New York City. Smith and D’Aleo accuse these centers of manipulating temperature data to give the appearance of warmer temperatures than actually occurred by trimming the number and location of weather observation stations. The report is available online at http://icecap.us/images/uploads/NOAAroleinclimategate.pdf.
That would be WUWT regular E.M. Smith then.
Go E.M.!!
