NOAA backs Trump on Alabama hurricane forecast, rebukes Weather Service for accurately contradicting

NOAA backs Trump on Alabama hurricane forecast, rebukes Weather Service for accurately contradicting him

September 6, 2019 at 8:52 PM EDT
The federal agency that oversees the National Weather Service has sided with President Trump over its own scientists in the ongoing controversy over whether Alabama was at risk of a direct hit from Hurricane Dorian.

In a statement released Friday afternoon, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) stated Alabama was in fact threatened by the storm at the time Trump tweeted Alabama would “most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated.”

Referencing archived hurricane advisories, the NOAA statement said that information provided to the president and the public between Aug. 28 and Sept. 2 “demonstrated that tropical-storm-force winds from Hurricane Dorian could impact Alabama."

2. Apparently, credibility is no longer important to NOAA but kissing trump*'s ass is a priority

What I want to know is, what is behind this obsession with Alabama and what does he have on the top individual at NOAA, because, at this point, I'm on the verge of surrendering all hope.

4. That's to get out of this

18 U.S. Code  2074. False weather reports

“Whoever knowingly issues or publishes any counterfeit weather forecast or warning of weather conditions falsely representing such forecast or warning to have been issued or published by the Weather Bureau, United States Signal Service, or other branch of the Government service, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ninety days, or both. 

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 795; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(G), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)”

5. Who predicted that Dorian would stall in Bahama's for nearly 2 days?

The weatherman can't predict accurately if it is going to rain in the evening much less the future path of a hurricane. The computer models predicting weather and stock market are pathetically inaccurate from my experience and observations for many decades.

Years ago, back in early 1960's, there was this old weatherman in Chicago, I think on channel 2 CBS, I think his name was PJ Hoff going by my 79 year old memory, and he was the most accurate weatherman I have ever encountered. And this was before the age of computers.

Google is your friend...I just had to search...editing post....

And my 79 year old memory is not atrocious.

6. Every day Trump approaches cartoon villain status.

Nothing and I mean nothing should surprise us. That includes potential suspension of the election and or accepting election results.
