Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman is no fan of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth or its follow-up, An Inconvenient Sequel, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last week and will go into full release this summer

A critic of Obama administration policy in this area, Coleman, 82, has long held that there is no scientific proof behind man-made climate change. In an October 2015 interview with Megyn Kelly on her former Fox News show, he argued that man-made climate change is a myth and “bad, bad science.”

“In 2006, An Inconvenient Truth became one of the top-grossing docs of all time, earning $50 million worldwide. It also and won the Oscar that year for best documentary,” Breitbart Newsdetailed.

In this essay, John Coleman characterizes global warming as “a scam.”

The environmental movement originally sounded the alarm over global cooling, and then global warming, prior to the climate change appellation. The Obama White House, which pushed for various regulatory and policy initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, adopted “climate disruption” as its new descriptor in a report called the “National Climate Assessment.”

Upon Donald Trump’s swearing-in as the nation’s 45th president, Twitter exploded when the White House website climate change material disappeared and was replaced by the new administration’s “American First Energy Plan.” The plan calls for lifting burdensome regulations; accessing untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves in the U.S.; implementing clean coal technology; and seeking energy independence from Middle East oil producers.

“Responsible stewardship of the environment” goes hand-in-hand with the new energy policy, the page also explains.

The Obama climate change information is permanently recorded in the National Archives, however.

In an interview with skeptic website Climate Depot, John Coleman — a former TV weatherman who earned a journalism degree rather than one in meteorology or climatology — indicated that neither Gore film is among his favorites.

“Gore’s Hollywood friends are giving his blatantly unscientific scare predictions a new platform. We have been horrified that Gore’s first scientific monstrosity has been shown as factual in schools throughout the world for all these years while our presentations in rebuttal have been generally ignored by educators and the liberal biased media….It is deeply depressing to hear that a new Al Gore movie on climate change will debut at actor Robert Redford’s Sundance film festival. Thousands of scientists have debunked the horrid science fiction in his first film, An Inconvenient Truth. Gore keeps making billions and miseducating millions and the media keeps spreading wild science-fiction claims on a daily basis.”
