    Weather Channel Climate Expert Calls for Decertifying Global Warming Skeptics

    By US Senate Environment and Public Works
    Thursday, January 18, 2007
    The Weather Channel's most prominent climatologist is advocating that broadcast meteorologists be stripped of their scientific certification if they express skepticism about predictions of manmade catastrophic global warming. This latest call to silence skeptics follows a year (2006) in which skeptics were compared to "Holocaust Deniers" and Nuremberg-style war crimes trials were advocated by several climate alarmists.
    The Weather Channel's (TWC) Heidi Cullen, who hosts the weekly global warming program "The Climate Code," is advocating that the American Meteorological Society (AMS) revoke their "Seal of Approval" for any television weatherman who expresses skepticism that human activity is creating a climate catastrophe.

    Inhofe is in the pocket of big oil he cannot be trusted

    The link is disingenuous and does not represent the Senate it is an Imhofe blog.


    Cullen stands by her words and she is pro-science in the matter and to take politics out of it.

    “I've read all your comments saying I want to silence meteorologists who are skeptical of the science of global warming. That is not true. The point of my post was never to stifle discussion. It was to raise it to a level that doesn't confuse science and politics. Freedom of scientific expression is essential.”


    face it if bush wants to silence science and we all know big oil with 39.5 billion in profits by exxon/mobil wants to silence it ..they have the money and noise machine to make a dimple for a while but the weather is changing and people with all their senses are not blind they can see it hear it and feel it.


    now for the rest of the story without the right wing noise machine to protect big oil and its massive profits brought about by massive corporate welfare sweetheart deals from the bush culture of greed.

    Humans 'very likely' making earth warmer


    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/world/4517836.html


    Meteorologists ... owe it to their audience to distinguish between solid, peer-reviewed science and junk political controversy. If a meteorologist can't speak to the fundamental science of climate change, then maybe the AMS shouldn't give them a Seal of Approval.


    I agree with this statement because it is pro-science and wants to get out of the politics of the right wing noise machine and its swift boating tactics.


    Inhofe job is to swift boat this scientist because he is in the pocket of big oil ...it is that cut and dry and he is one very lonely guy since the the science growing by the day and the debate is over and now is the time for solutions and creating new economy with trying to reverse damage.

    [​IMG] Heidi Cullen swift boating target of the right wing.


    However, the AMS has an initiative to expand the role of broadcast meteorologists -- to be seen not only as a weather forecaster, but as the station scientist. In this role, with climate change a topic that is not likely to go away anytime soon, it would behoove an AMS Seal holder to become educated on the science of global warming. I don't think that Dr. Cullen's original post mandated that a meteorologist come away with any particular political viewpoint after examining the available information. She merely was suggesting that, to better serve the viewing public as well as to advance the debate about global warming, broadcast meteorologists should seek to educate themselves on this important topic so as to be able to speak in facts and figures to interested members of their audiences.

    Aslanspal are you saying she did not suggest that those who disagre with man made GW should not be certified by the AMS?

    considering she posted an article by Christine Todd Whitman I would say that blows your theory, that she wants politics out of science, out of the water.

    Interestingly, the Weather Channel was going to do a series on Global Warming, but had to cancel when NOAA was ordered by the Bush administration not to help with it.

    Reality turns out to be precisely the opposite of that asserted in the OP.

    Imagine that.
