Everyone at CFACT lost a dear friend with the death of John Coleman.

John, who was the chief weatherman for ABC’s Good Morning America and co-founded The Weather Channel, was one of America’s leading meteorologists.

CFACT’s Marc Morano posted his tribute to John at Climate Depot – a tribute that was picked up by the Drudge Report.

Marc said, “I am shocked and saddened by the loss of John so suddenly. John has been a close ally and was featured in the film Climate Hustle and wrote the forward for my upcoming book (Feb. 2018): The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change. Coleman was a giant among meteorologists and had the courage to call out ‘global warming’ claims and go after Al Gore, Bill Nye and many others. The meteorological world lost a giant today!”

John was a principled man of science and a warm and valued friend. An outspoken critic of global warming alarmism, he once said, “I’m just a dumb old skeptic — a denier as they call me — who ought to be jailed or put to death. I understand how they feel. But you know something? I know I’m right. So I don’t care.”

The cause of sound science and climate realism lost a good friend this past weekend.

We’re going to miss John Coleman.
