Philippe Verdier, weather chief at France Televisions, the country’s state broadcaster, reportedly sent on “forced holiday” for releasing book accusing top climatologists of “taking the world hostage”

Every night, France’s chief weatherman has told the nation how much wind, sun or rain they can expect the following day.

Now Philippe Verdier, a household name for his nightly forecasts on France 2, has been taken off air after a more controversial announcement – criticising the world’s top climate change experts.

Mr Verdier claims in the book Climat Investigation (Climate Investigation) that leading climatologists and political leaders have “taken the world hostage” with misleading data.

In a promotional video, Mr Verdier said: “Every night I address five million French people to talk to you about the wind, the clouds and the sun. And yet there is something important, very important that I haven’t been able to tell you, because it’s neither the time nor the place to do so.”

He added: “We are hostage to a planetary scandal over climate change – a war machine whose aim is to keep us in fear.”

    AGW is no longer a unproven hypothesis, it’s become an international religion that wants to silence all “heretics”. L Ron Hubbard could only dream of pulling over a con this big.

      I agree. It is a worldwide scam and now heavily supported by big money that is making huge profits not only from “alternative energy” scams, but by also from discouraging emerging nations from using their natural energy sources to compete with established global corporations. Plus of course, we have people actually stupid enough to trade in non existent “carbon credits”! Dare to oppose the neo-religious climate anarchists? Some would rather face ISIS! It’s now up to you younger people to get a grip before so much political correctness, flawed pseudo scientific scare tactics and global insanity ruins the world that YOU will be wanting to live in. Time to vote the scammers out of office.

    Want to see a bunch of lies? Use your favorite search engine and type in “The truth about global warming”. First note that most web sites are run by some “organization” advocating a reduction in CO2 emissions. I’ve had the notion for decades that there are folks out there who, when they find a controversial issue, will form one of those “organizations” with themselves in charge so they can reap the benefit of donations without having to work. It doesn’t matter if they have to tell a few lies to “prove” their point. A scam is a scam is a scam… And, AGW is a SCAM on a world wide scale.

    I think this whole pile of Snake Oil is nothing more than one hell of a SMOKESCREEN…for what yo say.?? UN 1 World Government.

    In December in Paris this year, come s the latest climate conference get together blah blah blah. But my understanding is that they will table a Legally binding document whereby those that sign it must comply with the targets set within…in effect you are signing away your countries sovereignty…it will be the UN that tells you how much oil you can produce and how much you can use and pretty soon will be demanding access to your every move and thought.

    no joke….

    Very Scary Shite…Very.

    How can it be, that so many educated people, including politicians belive in tvist brainwash, when it is bright shining clear for a non-educated person like Morten.

    Yahoo will not allow comments following its articles anymore. That’s because the vast majority of commenters recognize that AGW/climate change is a hoax pressed upon us by green fanatics and radical liberals cum socialists like Obama and company (and the liberal mainstream media of which Yahoo sadly, is a member), as well as every liberal cause which seeks to squelch American’s rights and destroy our middle class and capitalist economic system.

    Obviously the truth, or all the phonies wouldn’t be decrying the truth and trying to hold the World in an iron grip of phony global warming hysteria.
