Claim To Fame: News and weather anchor for CNN.
Why He's Person of the Week: For standing up to Al Gore's Global Terrorists this past week. Unlike Gore, Marciano is a real meteorologist, in other words, he's a professional student of weather who holds a bachelor's degree in meteorology from Cornell University and has the American Meteorological Society's Seal of Approval.
On Thursday, Marciano showed that he's not going to let some has-been, ex-VP tell him about his expertise. So after his network CNN reported that a British judge called Al Gore "An Inconvenient Truth" unfit for schools "because it is politically biased and contains scientific inaccuracies and sentimental mush," Marciano responded with applause. First declaring "finally, finally," Marciano then commented sarcastically that "the Oscars, they give out awards for fictional films as well." Marciano also said that he objected in particular to "Inconvenient Truth"'s claim that global warming causes stronger hurricanes, noting that the current hurricane season has only been average. “There are definitely some inaccuracies,” Marciano added during the broadcast. “The biggest thing I have a problem with is this implication that Katrina was caused by global warming.”
Thanks to the judge British schools may now have to preface any showing of Gore's film with a warning. Props to Marciano and the judge for showing some guts in the face of liberal global warming propaganda.
