CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers States Manmade Global Warming Theory ‘Arrogant’


Add another member of the weather community who has a dissenting point of view with manmade global warming. CNN’s meteorologist Chad Meyers is questioning the notion of manmade global warming calling it “pretty arrogant”. Meyers questions like many have that man in all his insignificance can affect the vastness of nature.

CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers had never bought into the notion that man can alter the climate and the Vegas snowstorm didn’t impact his opinion. Myers, an American Meteorological Society certified meteorologist, explained on CNN’s Dec. 18 “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that the whole idea is arrogant and mankind was in danger of dying from other natural events more so than global warming. “You know, to think that we could affect weather all that much is pretty arrogant,” Myers said. “Mother Nature is so big, the world is so big, the oceans are so big – I think we’re going to die from a lack of fresh water or we’re going to die from ocean acidification before we die from global warming, for sure.” “We have 100 years worth of data, not millions of years that the world’s been around,” Myers continued. CNN Meteorologist: Manmade Global Warming Theory ‘Arrogant’

More arctic cold and snow on the way and its not officially winter yet:

As Hot Air states that the pro-global warming community has become a religious cult where if one dares to dissent they are branded a heretic.

It’s Galileo in reverse, where scientists who dispute both the models and the data lose patronage and funding, not because they’re wrong, but because they threaten the cash cow that the global-warming religion promises to researchers for the next couple of decades.

      Meteorologist Chad Myers isn’t someone you want on your side in any argument, and especially when it comes to global warming. He’s already been caught reciting debunked anti-global-warming theories on national TV (, in this case the completely debunked so-called “heat island” theory, that the growth of urban areas worldwide has skewed global warming data, and that the urban heat island effect create[s] the illusion of ‘global warming.’

      A 2001 study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) determined that between 1900 and 1990, the effect of urban heat islands on the global temperature record was no more than 0.05 degrees Celsius. By contrast, the surface temperature record is estimated to have warmed by 0.6 degrees to 0.8 degrees Celsius over the past century.

      Chad Myers is one among many global warming skeptics to use flawed science to attempt to prove that humans have no effect on global warming. Don’t act happy that he agrees with you, its not a good thing.
      SM: No one is acting happy … I happen to think that many of you who think man is greater than nature are full of yourself. The idea that people think they are greater than other things in the universe is arrogant, IMO.

      this guy should stick to where he is good at: the weather.
      because about climate this science-denier clearly doesn’t know much.

      at least he isn’t totally in denial of science, as he mentions the earth is millions of years old (it’s actually billions).
      good thing that the species who believe that the earth is several thousands years old is almost extinct now. thank God for evolution. ;)
      it took a while before the last species who believed the earth was flat became extinct.
      SM: Once again we must blame the ICE AGE on the cave men … those bastards. They were probably American cave men too. (note: this is sarcasm ;) )

      The rest of the solar system is heating up…

      I feeling that global warming IS a reality, unfortunately NOT of man’s doing as it has happened several times before man’s arrival.

      With the rest of the solar system showing a warming trend I seriously doubt that there is anything we can do but bear witness to the event.

      Wait! How can our government make a buck from it’s people
      if ‘global warming by mankind’ proves to be nothing more than
      a scam? Carbon credits will become worthless. Oh oh.

      Answer: Switch the focus of taxation legislation (imposition) over
      to GLOBAL COOLING by MANKIND! It’s an easy flip to suit the way
      the sun is affecting the earth’s temperature. Now, our people must
      either go all out to warm up this planet or be taxed to death for
      non compliance. Wow! Burn coal like there’s no tomorrow, or
      starve to death from tax confiscation.

      I just hope Mr. Obama has not been successful in his avowed
      campaign to strangle our coal industry prior to the switchover
      in government tactics. Cavalier taxation policies can tame an
      otherwise productive society into submission quickly. Move
      aside people, make way for the new President and financial
      maven! This smooth character can talk his economic rescue
      philosophy loud enough to drown out the roar of the treasury
      printing presses working overtime behind the scenes.

      Psssst!, if this cooling trend continues it may be time for
      real animal fur to become popular again.

      Man moved nuclear material out of the ground in which it was coexisting with its surroundings, refined it, and then destroyed two cities and (throughout the rest of the world) created massive amounts of new radioactive material which will harm entire ecosystems for tens of thousands of years.

      Man has already had several dramatic, lasting effects on the planet. It is not arrogance to tell the truth.

      How much of the temp change is natural and how much is man made. Did the cave men cause the last ICE AGE and the warmup that followed. Have you heard of the LITTLE ICE AGE that did not end until about 1850 ?

    8. scott on December 22nd, 2008 8:21 am

      Once again caesu “the great” has come to tell us since he knows everything that global warming is indeed a FACT when in fact it is a theory that has yet to be proven. It’s amazing when facts say otherwise, you know, the actual weather, that a liberal would blindly say those facts are null…loser

    9. Dolf on December 22nd, 2008 8:46 am

      it weren’t the cavemen

      it were those damn dino’s with there oversized SUV’s

      manmade global warming is a fact.
      99.95% of the scientic community is in agreement on this.

      of course there have been cooler and warmer periods in the past.

      but this time the warming is directly related to the CO2 in the athomosphere.
      and the increase CO2 is caused by the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.
      this is done by man.

      and again, weather and climate is something different.

    11. scott on December 22nd, 2008 11:30 am

      blah blah blah…whine…whine…whine like a typical tree hugging liberal…

      First it was something else, now it’s because of the CO2 in the atmosphere…whatever…cry me another river…people are awakening the realization that this all fluff…period…show me the 99.95% of “scientists” that are in agreement in that…or stop posting false information….

      Put down the crack pipes and start worrying about something that has an immediate effect on American lives…

      manmade global warming…so what? You lunatic liberal actually think the earth is going to implode in the next 1000 years? WTFever!

    12. caesu on December 22nd, 2008 12:45 pm

      #11 scott

      liberal or not doesn’t have anything to do with this.
      it’s science. these are proven facts.

      and the recent global warming is always been about the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere.
      not ‘first it was something else’.
      educate yourself a little, it won’t do you harm.
      or stay ignorant if that makes you feel better.

    13. Kay Zee Ess on December 22nd, 2008 1:43 pm

      Hey caesu,

      leave scottie-boy alone…he’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys and less expensive!

      Anyway, what I stated before is also fact. Man is not responsilble for the solar system getting warmer(fact) and was not responsible for the past Global-warming events and couldn’t stop this one even if we only rode bikes and used no fuel to survive.

      We are merely the historians of this natural phenomenon and are neither the instigators nor perpetrators of the next round of global-warming.

      Just grab a drink caesu and enjoy the experience.

      only this Global Warming is directly related to the CO2 increase.
      all graphs show a hike in global temperature just as the CO2 in the atmosphere is taking the same hike.
      and the CO2 increase in the atmosphere is due to burning of fossil fuels and deforestation – therefore: manmade.
      in the icelayers around the poles it is possible to look back at the CO2 in the atmosphere hunderds of thousands of years ago.
      past Global Warming events are totally different from this one, as they are not manmade.

      you won’t find a climatologist easily who denies this.
      and if there is still one, he must have missed the latest memo from the big oil companies.
      because they too have ceased spreading misinformation years ago.

    15. Kay Zee Ess on December 22nd, 2008 9:49 pm


      I am confident that you will excuse my passing off your pseudo-science as little more than propaganda designed to actually think that man is more powerful than the forces of nature.

      While I refrain from actually saying there is no global-warming(there is) I of course reject your guilt-ridden assertion that man is responsible(we are not).

    16. caesu on December 22nd, 2008 11:38 pm

      15# Kay Zee Ess

      “your guilt-ridden assertion that man is responsible(we are not)”

      we are not?
      you deny the proven link between the manmade CO2 increase of the atmosphere and the warming of the earth?

      did you fall victim to propaganda from the oil / auto industry lobbyists who tried to spread misinformation over the last few years?

      (and as a result didn’t make fuel efficient cars so few can afford these gas guzzling cars, instead bought foreign cars and now a bailout is needed to save the big three automakers)

    17. Dolf on December 23rd, 2008 5:01 am

      don’t think the global warming is totaly to blame on us.

      but we sure aint helping
      SM: Is it important to conserve, yes. Is is it important to be aware and not pollute our environment, most certainly. Is it extremely important to come up with energy sources that are not dependent on oil, the Middle East and terrorist, YES!!!

      I happen to believe that there are things so massive and vast that we cannot control them. In a way it is arrogant for man to think they can fool Mother Nature. Look at the power of a volcano, hurricane, tsunami, or earthquake. Man pales in comparison to the might of nature.

      We should conserve and not pollute for reasons that have nothing to do with any thought of global warming.

      Myers is using a common, hypocritical argument put out by religious conservatives. You could call it the “almighty/humble dichotomy.” On one hand, they see humans as the penultimate creature on the planet; the specially-entitled Chosen Ones. Prideful arrogance toward other species is the norm in that context.

      But, when science accuses the Chosen Ones of doing harm to nature, they’re suddenly wimpy and meek, and could never hurt big ol’ Earth! Rush Limbaugh uses this tactic a lot.

      It’s easy to counter such arguments with empirical evidence on many fronts. People have caused overfishing, numerous species extinctions with many more under threatened status, decimation of forest cover, aquifer depletion, the recent Gulf oil spill, the ability to make nuclear weapons, globally dispersed pollution from fallout (Strontium 90), local smog that nature never created…the list goes on.

      The claim that Man is a benign species is utterly false. 6.8 BILLION people (and growing) can do a lot of damage, and it’s growing as well.
