    If you think meteorologists are, as a scientific discipline, to be characterized as climate change deniers, you are more stupid than your initial comment let on.

      As San Diego weatherman John Coleman wrote in a November 2007 opinion piece, "Global Warming is a nonevent, a manufactured crisis and a total scam." The climate scientists are liars and con men who have no qualms about faking data if it will help assure them funding and continued research grants. It's all about the money. (By this logic, doctors are secretly doing their best to make the public sick, thus ensuring a continued supply of patients and income.)

      Curiously, Coleman is not alone; according to a survey conducted by an Emory University researcher, nearly one-third (29 percent) of the television meteorologists he asked responded that global warming was a "scam." That percentage may or many not be representative of all local TV station forecasters nationwide, but it should be cause for alarm.

        You think being on TV is what makes a meteorologist? Really?
        As long as you are on TV you are verified?
        And not just on TV, but on TV and one of the guys "somebody" ASKED?
        I suppose you think the only real reporters are TV reporters.
        And the only real experts on anything, are on TEEVEE??

        There are thousands of meteorologists in this country alone.'
        They are real meteorologists.
        And. They. Aren't. On. Friggin'. Teevee.

        If we're going to get anywhere, we've got to be smarter than Teabaggers. You're gonna need one hell of a head start.
