A new bill, still in its early drafts, may require the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to shift some of its research toward weather forecasts—and potentially away from studies of global warming and oceans, Climate Central reported.
The bill tackles a couple of issues that news reports have found in the wake of recent disasters such as Hurricane Sandy and the Moore, Oklahoma, tornado. First is the U.S. National Weather Service's slow weather forecasts. For example, the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts predicted Sandy's damaging path a week in advance, Climate Central reported, while the National Weather Service wasn't certain where Sandy would make landfall until three or four days before the storm hit. The second is the U.S.' weather satellite coverage. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's satellites are aging, but their replacements are running behind schedule and over budget.
The bill is far from legislation and is still open to revisions. Meanwhile, it offers a look at what its drafters, the House of Representatives' Subcommittee on Environment, want for the U.S. agency that both runs the National Weather Service and is a major player in global warming research.
Subcommittee Chairman Chris Stuart (R-Utah) told Climate Central that weather predictions, which include storm predictions, could "protect lives and property" and that's why the budget should shift money from weather to climate. Experts Climate Central contacted warned against taking too much away from climate research, which helps governments and businesses prepare for the long run.
Rather than observing the water becoming lower in the glass as we took a drink, we now focus on the glass having more dry surface area with the liquid H20 being removed.
If we need more Weather prediction, then give them more money. No doubt if the conservatives had their way, there would be NO study of climate change at all. They are not to be trusted, at all.
Weather is climate change. A changing climate is weather.
We can study weather for a day, a week, a year, a hundred years or longer. We can study weather over my house, the local city, state, country or planet. This is all the same science with just moving scope or focus and duration.
Now the study of human induced pollution and how it effects the enviroment is a seperate issue.
NOAA is weather. We have a pot of money for etherial science like climate, the National Science Foundation. I'm not saying that NOAA can't look at it as a hobby, but their reason for being is weather. Currently, it seems the other way around for NOAA, which due to the political heat on this issue, is not good for them. NSF, by the way it's set up should be able to do research somewhat insulated from politics, as long as the study can be justified to its betterment of national interests (potential climate change clearly important, sex habits of ducks...!) - which provides for better science (potentially).
Unfortunately, the climate data coming from existing satellites did not support the global warming political dogma. Thus these missions were no longer "useful".
If you want to forecast 3 days weather then you have to move here.
