Meteorologist and Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman joined Fox News' Megyn Kelly Monday night to discuss the trials and tribulations facing one of the nation's most persecuted minority groups: climate skeptics.

"Thank you for having me on your program," said Coleman. "A climate skeptic can rarely get on TV ever since Al Gore made it a plank of the Democratic Party ... it's a tough go for people who don't believe in climate change."

Coleman stunned many global warming supporters in October with an open letter he penned claiming that the science behind climate change was "not valid."

“There is no significant man-made global warming at this time," he wrote.

Kelly pointed to several Republicans, like Jon Huntsman Jr., who have argued that those who don't believe in global warming are "nuts."

In response, Coleman blamed the media for spreading inaccuracies.

"It's very difficult for anybody to be against it, because the media has told the nation over and over again, day after day for 20 years that the oceans are rising, the polar bears are dying, the ice is melting, that storms are going to sweep the earth and that we're all going to die of a heat wave," responded Coleman, later assuring viewers that more polar bears are "alive and happy" today than ever before. "This is an incredible, bad, bad science."
