During an appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” three years ago, The Weather Channel founder John Coleman destroyed, eviscerated and demolished both CNN and host Brian Stelter over their fanatical dedication to the unproven theory of man-made climate change.
“I resent you calling me a ‘denier,’” he initially told Stelter, referencing the host’s decision to identify him as a so-called “climate denier,” according to a transcript from The Heartland Center. “I’m a skeptic about climate change.”
Stelter then made the unwise decision to interrupt Coleman to tell him how much he personally loves The Weather Channel. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is when Coleman began letting him have it.
“I’m talking now!” he barked back. “Hold on just a minute. I’m not done. And CNN has taken a very strong position on global warming that it is a consensus. There is no consensus in science. Science isn’t a vote. Science is about facts. And if you get down to the hard cold facts, there’s no question about it. Climate change is not happening.”
When Stelter interrupted him again shortly thereafter to argue that it wouldn’t be possible for them to reach a definitive conclusion on man-made climate change during the show, Coleman hit him again. “Oh I know we’re not, because you would’t allow it to happen on CNN,” he snarkily replied.

The remainder of the interview continued in the same vein, with Stelter repeatedly trotting out bogus “facts,” and Coleman slapping them down every time.
“That’s a manipulated figure and let me explain it to you,” he said when Stelter touted the “fact” that 97 percent of climate scientists believe in climate change.
He explained that the government will only fund scientists who produce certain scientific results that fit their desired agenda.
“So, they don’t have any choice,” he said. “If you’re going to get the money, you gotta support their position. Therefore, 97 percent of the scientific reports published support global warming. Why? Because those are the ones the government pays for and that’s where the money is.”
“I’m not a scientist, so I’m not going to try to refute you,” Stelter replied, to which Coleman replied with the slam of the year: “Boy, that’s the truth.“
Ain’t it, though!?
“So please stand back from this issue … There are 31,000 scientists who have signed a petition that says it is not valid, that my position is correct,” he added. “And we’ll keep battling, and we will prevail in time, but I don’t know if we’ll do it in my lifetime.”
As of September, an astonishing 31,487 scientists with 9,029 PhDs have signed the petition.
