Not everyone believes Al Gore

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports:
"This cry that 'We're all going to die' is an overreaction and just not good science," said Andre Bernier, a meteorologist at WJW Channel 8. "I don't think I personally know any meteorologists - here in Cleveland or anywhere else I've worked - who agree with the hype over human-induced warming." ....

[T]there are doubters - all AMS certified - in prominent on-air positions at each of the four Cleveland television stations.

Bernier and Dick Goddard - the patriarch of Cleveland weather forecasters - predict the weather at WJW Channel 8.

Both cite natural fluctuations in the Earth's climate and dismiss the industrialization of the 20th century and the subsequent spike in atmospheric carbon dioxide as the cause for warming.....

[T]he drift away from global warming among TV weather forecasters is hardly limited to Cleveland.

"This is nationwide," said Stu Ostro, meteorologist and director of weather communications for the Weather Channel in Atlanta.

How will the fear mongers retaliate? Will they boycott TV weather?

Hat tip: WattsUpWithThat.
