“Not only is the ice not melting, more polar bears are alive and happy today than we’ve had in 100 years,” Coleman told Kelly. The research behind climate change “is bad, bad science,” he says.
In a note to staff today, obtained by TVNewser, Kenny writes, “Mr. Coleman does have a place in our company’s history, and we appreciate the contributions he made more than 30 years ago. However, we want to be clear: John Coleman is no longer affiliated with our company, and his opinions do not represent The Weather Company. We regret any confusion this has caused.”
Coleman, 80, has worked in TV news for more than 60 years. He was the first weather anchor for “Good Morning America” in the 1970s. In 1981 he co-founded the Weather Channel. He’s also worked at WCBS in New York, WBBM, WLS and WMAQ in Chicago, and spent the last 20 years of his career KUSI in San Diego.
