01/22/2010: You might recognize John Coleman, a former TV weather man out of Chicago, who went on to became the original TV meteorologist on ABC's Good Morning America when it debuted back in 1975. He hung his hat with that highly-rated show for seven years, which, as you may recall, was primarily hosted successfully for years by David Hartman, and who was eventually scripted along with a full co-host, Joan Lunden after she joined the show a few years later.*
As pointed out on the Wiki post, linked above, in 1981, Coleman got together with a "communications entrepreneur" named Frank Batten, and they became the founders of the Weather Channel. Coleman is now no longer affiliated with that organization.
Though at 75, he is semi-retired, John still does the weather for an independent TV station out in San Diego, KUSI-TV. If you would like to view more of John Coleman's clips on global warming, links are posted here on their site.
As he will tell you in the following clip, John's been doing this for 55 years.
John believes that global warming is a scam. Here is his pitch on the topic.

* Years later, after Hartman retired in 1987, Joan Lunden and Charlie Gibson went to to become the network's top-rated team on the show, overtaking the Today Show for a stint.
