Global Warming McCarthyism

Well-known hurricane forecaster William Gray recently gave a statement to Florida Today making the argument that the so-called consensus on global warming is "bogus."  Gray also noted that "a mild form of McCarthyism has developed toward those scientists who do not agree."  He continued with his opinion that "we are also brainwashing our children on the warming topic."  The example of this brainwashing that Gray gave was the widespread showing of Al Gore's "alarmists [sic] and inaccurate movie" in classrooms across the country."  

Gray recently appeared at the National Hurricane Conference where other scientists debunked the theory that global warming is increasing the risk of hurricanes.  If world temperatures did rise (which the scientists did not concede it is doing or will do) then hurricanes would actually be less likely.

I don't recall the source but I read somewhere that a meteorologist can't get a job in the media if they don't subscibe to global warming and many have been fired.

The founder of the Weather Channel is in the forefront of the fight against Al Gore and the hype-machine. It sounds like something he might have said.
