Hurricane Florence Displays "Climate Models"

Huge Disparity in Full-Color Broadcast for Days

Climate modeling couldn't make accurate predictions
Meteorologists just needed to do it for hours, not decades

Public sat mesmerized, mesmerized, by swirling images, images

The lamestream media told you:

Run for your lives! Danger Will Robinson! Storm's a comin'! Deadly Category 4 murder death kill! Meets land as Category 1, so what, ignore the number (they actually said that) still horrible threat, pay no attention to people walking behind windblown reporter standing there.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

OK, a certain amount of civil awareness and preparedness is called for, failure to do any would be negligent. But the degree to which the media acts in lock step on this has become absurd.

The public's desire to remain glued to their televisions to watch the silly displays is preposterous. Dennis Prager saliently observed you could replay the storm coverage from any past hurricane, edit out the names, and nothing would be different! The wind is blowing, Wolf, and it's raining real hard! I can hardly see, Don! Look at these waves, and the storm surge is huge! We've got feet of water in the streets, and water rescue crews are out everywhere. Trees are down. OK, there, 60 seconds and you have everything you're going to get for the next hours, along with short term loops of hypnotic swirling colors. Do you really need to see bald Don Lemon getting rained on lightly?

What's missing: Long-term footage of the storm from discovery to current position, that would be revealing, no one played it, just short frenetic loops. Wide shots of the Atlantic to show the other storms developing, also not shown anywhere I could find. Comparisons of the many projected tracks and the actual track, and analysis of why they were so divergent, that would be valuable, and require work. Not displayed before or after.

Does this climate modeling inaccuracy play into any other climate modeling arena of significance? Curious minds want to know. That would be real reporting. Instead we get breathless reports that wind is blowing and rain is falling. You know that with the TV off.


At least scientists know climate-change computer predictions will be accurate 80 years out.
