Scientists have admitted there has been no warming for 15 years and ‘global warming’ was exposed as a fraud in the climategate leaked emails yet this weatherman cried at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s findings?
That’s why I deduced the weatherman lives in a cave, the pictures are further proof, he’s a cave dweller. How else can you explain his reaction, his crying. Surely if he lived outside he would know about the hoax.
However, it is possible that he read the report after ingesting some ‘shrooms’ and tweeted while still under the influence…
'No children, happy to go extinct', tweets weatherman after grim climate-change report made him cry (now he's considering a vasectomy)
- Eric Holthaus, who used to do weather for Wall Street Journal, was reacting to Friday's findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
- Scientists found in the report that it was 'extremely likely' that humans are causing warming trends
- Holthaus said he has decided not to have children in order to leave a lighter carbon footprint, and has considered having a vasectomy
- He tweeted on Friday 'no children, happy to go extinct'
- The weatherman also said he is committed to stop flying as 'it's not worth the climate'
- US Secretary of State, John Kerry, calls the report 'an alarm bell'
- It means scientists have moved from being 90 per cent sure to 95 per cent sure regarding global warming

A meteorologist who has covered weather for the Wall Street Journal tweeted that he has decided not to have children in order to leave a lighter carbon footprint, and is considering having a vasectomy.
He also vowed to stop flying after the world's recent climate-change report made him cry.
Eric Holthaus was reacting to the findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which released a report on Friday that found it was ‘extremely likely’ that humans are causing warming trends seen in the last several decades.

'Broke down': Holthaus' first tweet after reading the report
'Last flight': He commits to stop flying
No other way: He asks people to do everything they can to reverse carbon emissions
Devotion: The weatherman says people should spend all their energy on the issue of climate change
Extinct: Holthaus says he is happy to do it even though the thought makes him sad
Adios babies: He says the decision to not have children is 'emotional'
Vasectomy: His last tweet toys with the idea of getting sterilised
- Climate change is on ice: UN scientists reveal the world's barely got any hotter in the last 15 years - but say they are now 95% certain man is to blame for global warming
- It's not as bad as we thought - but global warming is still a disaster, warn UN experts
'An old rule says that climate-relevant trends should not be calculated for periods less than around 30 years,' said Thomas Stocker, co-chair of the group that wrote the report.
The IPCC said the evidence of climate change has grown thanks to more and better observations, a clearer understanding of the climate system and improved models to analyse the impact of rising temperatures.
The full 2,000-page report isn't going to be released until Monday, but the summary for policymakers with the key findings was published Friday.
It contained few surprises as many of the findings had been leaked in advance.
The IPCC raised its projections of the rise in sea levels to 10-32 inches (26-82 centimeters) by the end of the century, compared to previous reports predicting a rise of 7-23 inches (18-59 centimeters)
As expected, the IPCC raised its projections of the rise in sea levels to 10-32 inches (26-82 centimeters) by the end of the century. The previous report predicted a rise of 7-23 inches (18-59 centimeters).
Using four scenarios with different emissions controls, the report projected that global average temperatures would rise by 0.3 to 4.8 degrees C this century. That's 0.5-8.6 F.
The report adopted Friday deals with the physical science of climate change.
Next year, the IPCC will adopt reports on the impacts of global warming, strategies to fight it and a synthesis of all three reports.
