(AOL) The Weather Channel has reaffirmed its belief that global warming is a result of human events after the cable network's co-founder told Fox News it is a myth.
The network doubled down on its position in a statement Wednesday only days after John Coleman, who helped start the widely-popular channel, made his remarks.
"The climate of the earth is indeed warming, with an increase of approximately 1 - 1 1/2 degrees Fahrenheit in the past century," the channel said in an official "position statement."

Climatologists "nearly unanimously [agree] the majority of the warming" has been the "result of human activities," the statement continued.
