Sam Champion Disagrees With Weather Channel Co-Founder's Climate Change Denial

Make no mistake about it: Sam Champion doesn’t agree with Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman's climate change denial.

"I don't know what John Coleman's creds are. I don't know who he listens to," the Weather Channel anchor told HuffPost Live in a Thursday interview. "[But] I can tell you that I'm sure there are people out there sitting in the living room who agree with him; I can only tell you I don't agree with him."

Coleman made waves in late October when he argued on Fox News that global warming was a myth. Despite that, research being conducted at the very network he helped start suggests otherwise, according to Champion.

"I got 200 scientists in my building who are some of the smartest minds in the world, and if they walk in the door and they show me the data and we see that the climate is changing, then I'm going to go with that," he said. "I'm going to back them and agree with that and I'm going to say indeed, we need more study on that."
