NY Mag: Famous French Weatherman Publicly Doubts Climate Change, Goes on ‘Forced Holiday’ – ‘French Al Roker Casts Doubt on Climate Change’



A well-known French weatherman has been put on an indefinite “forced holiday” after writing a book criticizing climate-change research and saying that, even if it does exist, it will probably have some very positive effects, including more tourists, lower death rates, lower electricity bills in the winter, and higher-quality wine.


Philippe Verdier, famous for delivering nightly forecasts on the state-run news channel France 2, has authored a new book casting doubt on the research of world climatologists. Climat Investigation, which is set to be released in time for the December U.N. climate summit in Paris, claims that misleading climate data has “taken the world hostage.”

Verdier’s views led France Télévisions, the country’s state broadcaster, to take him off the air.


“I received a letter asking me not to come [to work],” Verdier said in an interview with French RTL radio. “This is a direct extension of what I say in my book, namely that any contrary views must be eliminated.”


In his book, Verdier challenges the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, saying they “blatantly erased” data that didn’t support their conclusions in their most recent report, The Telegraph writes.
