The Weather Channel’s Heidi Cullen has called for decertifying AMS broadcasters who denied global warming was real. There have been over a thousand comments to The Weather Channel (TWC) about this.
I would say this is just a rare misjudged public comment and that discrimination against sceptics has been going on quietly, behind the scenes, for decades and I am not talking about TWC here. It might take the form of threats to tenured positions, difficulty publishing worthy papers critical of IPCC science, difficulties attracting funding that is not for pro-IPCC science, just general quiet slander.
In response to the many critical comments to TWC, Heidi Cullen, host of the weekly global warming show The Climate Code, tried to redirect the conversation in her blog post late Thursday afternoon: She says, “I wrote a post recently that has generated some pretty strong reaction and I wanted to take a moment to stop the spin.”
Good try Heidi.
AMS certified ABC-TV weatherman James Spann’s has written a devastating critique of Cullen. Spann, who has been in the weather business since 1978 noted “I do not know of a single TV meteorologist who buys into the man-made global warming hype” and he says that climate alarmism is driven by huge research grants that become “the motivation for a scientific conclusion” Read Spann’s comments here:
