Remember John Coleman? He’s the original founder of the Weather Channel that wants to sue Al Gore for bringing climate change front and center — something he perceives as a hoax on the grandest of levels. He’s also disgruntled because the network he built is pushing the environmental agenda with green-themed reports and series. “They’re telling us how to think!,” he wildly claimed during a skeptics conference last March.
Yea, well, Coleman probably isn’t going to be happy with the recent gossip that NBC Universal has acquired the Weather Channel for $3.5 billion. As we’ve seen in the past, NBC is fully committed to green programming — with two “green-themed” weeks already under its belt in the last 12 months. Most likely, it will remain business as usual for WC’s green push — something we’re more than happy to see continue.
The real winner of the bidding war is likely to be revealed shortly. Stay tuned.
