Weather Channel Founder's 'Global Warming - The Other Side' Airs In San Diego

A rather remarkable thing happened Thursday: a documentary highly skeptical of man's role in global warming was aired on broadcast television.

The program, "Global Warming - The Other Side," was created and hosted by John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, and debuted on San Diego's independent television station KUSI.

Readers should be familiar with Coleman as the man who not only called global warming "the greatest scam in history," but also advocated suing Nobel Laureate Al Gore to expose the fraud. 

Breaking with American media's tradition of almost exclusively broadcasting programs supporting Gore's view of climate change, "The Other Side" remarkably devoted an entire hour to fully explaining what the global warming-obsessed press dishonestly hide from the public (videos in four parts embedded below the fold, h/t Climate Depot):

KUSI should be applauded for airing this special.

Like nothing produced for American television to date, "The Other Side" methodically explained what the theory of global warming actually is, and addressed how carbon dioxide not only is a minor player in the atmosphere's greenhouse effect, but also how atmospheric concentrations of this gas actually trail rises in global temperatures instead of lead such increases as Gore and his minions depict.

Beyond this, "The Other Side" showed how Gore and others first got involved in this movement, and what led to the creation of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as a largely political body.

From there, the program debunked the many hysterical climate change claims made by such folks including the eminent flooding of American cities and extinction of polar bears.

Lastly, "The Other Side" addressed how climate data is being manipulated by U.S. agencies in order to exaggerate historical temperatures.

In the end, this is one of the finest television documentaries yet produced concerning this issue, and KUSI is to be commended for airing it.

The onus is now on other networks to either air this program for their viewers -- with KUSI's approval of course -- or create shows of their own that provide the public with vital information for them to make an educated decision about one of the most important subjects of our time.

Will the mainstream media reciprocate and finally share all the facts of this matter with the citizenry?

Stay tuned.
