NEW KUSI-TV SPECIAL REPORT DOCUMENTS THE GLOBAL WARMING MELTDOWN
In a follow-up to the hit KUSI show “Global Warming: The Other Side”, iconic weatherman John Coleman documents the latest developments in Climategate. “Global Warming: Meltdown” airs Thursday at 9pm PT on KUSI-TV in San Diego and on KUSI.COM
New revelations have brought a chill to the hot rhetoric about Global Warming according to a new prime time television special report. And, the series of major snow storms in the eastern U.S., a series of freezes in Florida, and unrelenting cold over much of the Northern Hemisphere has given a major boost to global warming skepticism. Set for broadcast on Thursday, February 18th at 9pm PT on KUSI-TV in San Diego, this new program follows up on a mid-January Global Warming special on KUSI that was both a ratings and Internet hit.
KUSI Meteorologist John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel and a leading global warming skeptic, will be seen in a point, counter-point segment that also features Richard Sommerville, Ph.D., an emeritus Research Scientist from Scripps Institution of Oceanography. (A brief video preview can be found at Thursday morning at www.kusi.com.)
Scripps, a major global warming research center, took exception with the first program’s segment that debunked the hypothesis of carbon dioxide as an important greenhouse gas.
The program will document many other new developments in the “Climategate” controversy including new questions about data manipulations at the US climate centers and problems with the weather observation stations where the critical temperature data is collected in this county and around the world. The program also covers the ever-growing list of revelations about the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and its troubled leader, Rajendra Pachauri.
Well-known Climatologist John Christy, Ph.D., will be interviewed on the program to report his findings from measuring Earth’s atmospheric temperature by satellite, a far more comprehensive measurement than is possible using land based thermometers.
Also appearing on the program will be Anthony Watts, the former TV Meteorologist and weather computer system entrepreneur who has documented the problems with weather stations and explains his view of the problems with global warming science.
“Global Warming: Meltdown”, the hour long, prime time special airs at 9 PM Pacific Time Thursday evening on KUSI-TV, 9/51 in San Diego.
The program will also be available after the broadcast on the station’s website, KUSI.COM. Over one million people have logged on to the website’s section on global warming since the first episode aired in January.
|Global Warming: Meltdown is a production of McKinnon Broadcasting. The Executive Producer is Joe Riddle.
