"Global Warming": Greatest Scam in History?

Weather Channel founder John Coleman teed off but good yesterday on the "global warming" freakologists:
It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create an allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the “research” to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.

Environmental extremists, notable politicians among them, then teamed up with movie, media and other liberal, environmentalist journalists to create this wild “scientific” scenario of the civilization threatening environmental consequences from Global Warming unless we adhere to their radical agenda. Now their ridiculous manipulated science has been accepted as fact and become a cornerstone issue for CNN, CBS, NBC, the Democratic Political Party, the Governor of California, school teachers and, in many cases, well informed but very gullible environmentally conscientious citizens.
That about sums up what's going on, doesn't it? We've been saying much the same thing here, but Coleman has a way with words.

These comments, BTW, are taken from Coleman's remarks that appear at a website called ICECAP, which is supported by various "individuals" who aren't named. I figured I'd get out front with this, as the lack of ID is likely to attract the usual scurrilous attacks, like "Cheney and Halliburton are paying for this." (On the other hand, most lefty sites are careful to hide their paper trails as well.)

Nonetheless, I'd fail to see why this site's mysterious supporters should be any more nefarious than the mysterious supporters who fund sites on the left. Bottom line: Coleman is right. But his comments here will either draw the usual, shrill, scurrilous denunciations. Or, in true academic style, they will not be "noticed" at all.

Global warming is a pyramid scheme invented by those unable to sell the Brooklyn Bridge.
