RUSH: John Coleman, who founded the Weather Channel, wants to sue Algore on this whole business of global warming being a hoax. I have loved John Coleman ever since he used to be the weatherman at Good Morning America. He was on Fox & Friends today, and Steve Doocy said, "Why should Algore be sued?"
COLEMAN: The whole backbone of the global warming "science" is what they called CO2 forcing. This is carbon dioxide, and they say that this little trace compound in the atmosphere -- 38 molecules of carbon dioxide out of a hundred thousand molecules in our atmosphere, they say this little trace element -- puts the carbon in the air that forces the water vapor to create this uncontrollable global warming. It's gonna bring this climatic catastrophe.
DOOCY: Right. Right.
COLEMAN: All right, that's what they're finding. Now, I don't believe that's the way it works at all.
DOOCY: Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm.
COLEMAN: I see absolutely no evidence that CO2, carbon dioxide, is causing any warm-up in temperatures. I don't think it's happening. I'm asking the question: If Al Gore knows that CO2 forcing is invalid -- isn't really happening -- and he goes ahead and sells these carbon credits for millions of dollars, is he committing financial fraud? That is the question.
RUSH: Doocy says, "Well, John, there's no disputing the temperature on the planet's gone up by one degree." Steve, it's come down a degree! The whole century gain was wiped out before recent temperature readings, and here's what Coleman said.
COLEMAN: I dispute that.
DOOCY: You do dispute that!
COLEMAN: I think the whole statistics are somewhat questionable. Where are they measuring this temperature? Who's measuring it? How are they handling the data?
DOOCY: The whole global warming thing is just a hyped scam?
COLEMAN: Maybe over the last hundred years the temperature on planet Earth went up by close to a degree or so.
COLEMAN: That's not a big deal. In the last 12 months, the climate on earth has gone down by a full degree. This has been the coldest winter in modern history globally.
RUSH: Amen. John Coleman. I love that guy.
