More global warming dissent:

But they’re skeptical, and they don’t believe that it’s necessarily our fault or that we should panic over it.

“We have maybe 100 years of data on a rock that’s 6 billion years old,” said Johnson, a WEWS Channel 5 weatherman. “Mother Nature tends to even herself out, and the fact is, the Earth is cyclical.”

Goddard, WJW Channel 8 meteorologist, said scientists have flip-flopped on the matter: “I have a file an inch thick from 30 years ago that says the planet was cooling,” he told the crowd of several hundred.

They cautioned listeners not to put too much stock in what they said was an insufficient history of warming.

“The term global warming’ strikes fear in the heart of people every time you say it, but it’s simply a rise in temperature over time, and it’s happened before,” said Nolan, meteorologist at WKYC Channel 3. “I’m not sure which is more arrogant for humans: to say we caused it or to say we’re going to fix it.”
