I live in northeastern New Jersey, about three miles due west of the Empire State Building in Manhattan. Yesterday, Tuesday (1/2/18) the weather people were telling us a storm coming from the Gulf of Mexico would cross over Florida, head into the Atlantic and would remain mostly out at sea, with only an accumulation of 1 - 3 inches of snow here. Today, --- 24 HOURS LATER -- we're being told up to TEN INCHES! ONE DAY LATER!
They couldn't accurately forecast the track of a storm in ONE DAY; yet many of these same "Meteorologists" dare to tell us the planet is undergoing "Climate Change" and in 50 years we will see this or that. Oh really? This from people who cannot accurately forecast a storm from one day to the next . . . . and we're supposed to take their 50 year predictions seriously?
The next time you hear one of these nitwits talking about "Climate Change" recognize immediately that he's probably an idiot and ignore him.
