Blue Virginia has touted a new website - Forecast the Facts.
They want TV weathercasters to talk more about global warming and connect weird weather to that.
So I checked the about page on the website.
TV meteorologists have worked for years to build respectability for their profession. What began as a glorified announcer position has morphed into a true scientific pursuit, with graduate degrees, a professional association, and standards for certification.
So let me get this straight.
TV weathermen have brought science to their profession.
Many TV weathermen don't believe global warming.
But don't all scientists believe global warming?
If TV weathermen have scientific degrees and training, and don't believe global warming, doesn't that mean that some scientists don't believe global warming?
If there's scientists who don't believe global warming, why fuss that TV weathermen don't focus on a scientific consensus that's not really a total consensus.
Stand proud, Topper Shutt.
What's his scientific standing?
Topper earned the American Meteorological Society's Seal of Approval for both television and radio in 1988.
