TV Weathercasters Unite To Push ‘Climate Change’ (scam) Or Something

I wonder how much electricity is used to broadcast the weather?

TV Meteorologists Unite For Climate Change On The Summer Solstice

Surprisingly, there are a small percentage of TV meteorologists that express skepticism on climate change. The American Meteorological Society (AMS), George Mason University, and others have studied the reasons why, and I will say more about that later. This is particularly worrisome because TV meteorologists are the only scientists the average public citizen will see on a daily basis. Many people, myself included, recognize that TV colleagues, though only about 8% of the meteorology field according to the AMS, are great sources for climate change news and education. And by the way, the majority of the public thinks that every meteorologist is on TV anyhow (smile). Every meteorologist that I know, irrespective of the sector of the field they work, has gotten this question, “So what channel are you on?”

On the June 21, 2018 Summer Solstice, over 100 meteorologists will wear an item of clothing like the tie below. The effort is called #MetsUnite. Keep reading for what the pattern on the tie indicates.

Why is this effort needed? Isn’t it a “no brainer” that anyone that studies weather would understand that climate change is a challenge? As a former president of the American Meteorological Society and in many discussions with broadcast meteorologists on all sides of the ledger, I have gained some valuable insight on why there is variance in the perspectives of broadcast meteorology community.

And why are they doing it when it’s hot outside? Which happens in the Northern Hemisphere at this time of year?

Specifically for this initiative it was my idea! I saw Ed Hawkins Warming Stripes pattern and the simplicity resonated with me. It is our job as meteorologists and station scientists to explain weather and climate in simple, memorable terms. This pattern could not be more simple… red for warmer than normal, blue for cooler than normal from 1850 to 2017. Plus the pattern looked like it could be a nifty tie… in a weather geek sort of way. So I quickly organized this initiative and Climate Central jumped in to offer support. They are a great organization as you know and we are all working together towards the same goal, climate change awareness. We discussed various aspects of the initiative. This Wednesday they will send out a supplementary email with info/ graphics for “Meteorologists United on Climate Change” which will be this Thursday June 21st, the summer solstice. #MetsUnite

This is what they’re referring to

It’s a manufactured representation meant to scare people into allowing themselves to be taxed out the ying yang, see their cost of living skyrocket, and have the government restrict their freedom. It is beyond disingenuous, as the comparison is for what they consider “average”, but misses that most years prior to that average, taken from 1960-1990, will be slightly cooler. The Little Ice Age ended in 1850, and there were several periods where the temperatures spiked throughout the Modern Warm Period, and a few pauses. But, always, the trend has been slightly up. But, an increase of 1.5F since 1850 is minor. No big deal. But, they have to keep push push pushing to keep their cult going.

And it’s still not proof that this is mostly/solely caused by Mankind’s output of CO2.

    There is no ‘Normal’. The writer is confusing normal with Average. Average is just a calculated number from a range of numbers which means half the range is above and half the range is below the average. A lot more data and analysis is needed to make any sense of any set of data. Average is just one of the analysis needed.

    The writer is also confusing the sensory feelings of hot and cold with Temperature date. A similar color scheme can be created if one starts at -40f and ranges up to 0F. the above average temps in that range would also be reds. But the sensory feelings will only be cold.

    That’s a completely adjusted “temperature record”. It’s got the 1.5C adjustments that decrease the very warm 30’s will increasing the modern temperatures.

    Nope, that won’t work. It’s a lie wrapped in a pretty picture.
