The Weather Channel has lost its way, according to John Coleman, who founded the channel in 1982.

Coleman told an audience at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change on March 3 in New York that he is highly critical of global warming alarmism.

“The Weather Channel had great promise, and that’s all gone now because they’ve made every mistake in the book on what they’ve done and how they’ve done it and it’s very sad,” Coleman said. “It’s now for sale and there’s a new owner of The Weather Channel will be announced – several billion dollars having changed hands in the near future. Let’s hope the new owners can recapture the vision and stop reporting the traffic, telling us what to think and start giving us useful weather information.”

The Weather Channel has been an outlet for global warming alarmism. In December 2006, The Weather Channel’s Heidi Cullen argued on her blog that weathercasters who had doubts about human influence on global warming should be punished with decertification by the American Meteorological Society.

Coleman also told the audience his strategy for exposing what he called “the fraud of global warming.” He advocated suing those who sell carbon credits, which would force global warming alarmists to give a more honest account of the policies they propose.

I take it Coleman is a proud owner of one of those coal companies that are blowing the tops off mountains in Appalachia.

Sorry to hear TWC is being sold. It has been doing a good job of getting the word out about leaving a smaller footprint on the earth.

I read over the weekend that Universal Studios bought it...

I sure hope they leave it the way it is...

That large high-definition television screen isn't going anywhere, and your favorite Weather Channel anchors don't have to pack their bags either. They get to stay as part of NBC Universal's agreement, announced Sunday, to buy the Atlanta-based Weather Channel.
