Warming Alarmists seek to purge TV weathermen who deny global warming. Except for Al Gore and our own Dollar Bill, no one thinks that short-term weather, which is what is discussed on local weather shows, has anything to do with long – term climate change. But in the brave new world, purity is everything.
The Forecast the Facts campaign — led by 350.org, the League of Conservation Voters and the Citizen Engagement Lab — is pushing for more of a focus on global warming in weather forecasts, and is highlighting the many meteorologists who do not share their beliefs.
“Our goal is nothing short of changing how the entire profession of meteorology tackles the issue of climate change,” the group explains on their website. “We’ll empower everyday people to make sure meteorologists understand that their viewers are counting on them to get this story right, and that those who continue to shirk their professional responsibility will be held accountable.”
These are the same people, or their spawn, who used to hiss and shout me down in college classrooms when I challenged our professors’ communist prattle. They were terrified then and still are.
