    Thanks for having Mr. Coleman and the CEO of the Weather Channel on your show. Until now, CNN has done a poor job covering the related topics. In 2007, the Weather Channel made its policy statement. That was the same year that former Vice President Gore made his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace prize. In the speech, he cited climate science research that predicted the Arctic Sea Ice would completely disappear in only seven years. Well, the seven years have passed, and what has happened to that Arctic Ice? What is the credibility of forecasters who were completely wrong?
