  • As of this date (January 12, 2020,) for anyone who wants to know, NOAA is under the leadership of Neil Jacobs and hasn’t confirmed a leader since January 2017. Maybe one of the better things the Senate has done over the past couple of years.

  • John Oliver is so obviously far left. He's really funny but he intentionally leaves information out CONSTANTLY!!! 🙄

    James RowlandJames Rowland9 gün önce
    • @James Rowland Yes and no, transparency is about making sure the process that got you what you have or are presenting is easily seen and (with hope) understood. I'm not going to say Oliver is in the right by ignoring the things Trump has donw right, but just what has Trump done right that's actually substantial or worth covering?

      Fenris WafflesFenris Waffles6 gün önce
    • @Fenris Waffles no, no transparency does mean revealing everything that you're fine and not just what you want to find

      James RowlandJames Rowland6 gün önce
    • @James Rowland Transparency doesn't mean representing both sides equally, especially when one side requires more focus because it presents a vastly bigger problem. What exactly is the problem with focusing on the issues Trump is causing and the problems Trump represents?

    • @Fenris Waffles If you remember most people felt this way about JFK during his term, how do they remember him now?

      James RowlandJames Rowland6 gün önce
    • @Fenris Waffles While you are right on most of that, John still runs with whatever the mainstream media is saying and is nothing more than a shill reporting only one side. Dig around, he constantly only tells one side. Funny is good, but when people trust you to be transparent you need to be just that.

  • While I was attending Penn State for my master's in meteorology, I heard about the bill AccuWeather submitted to try and restrict the NWS from posting public data. I personally couldn't believe anyone would want to do that, and it made me seriously consider the motives of AccuWeather and any wealthy CEO. I couldn't fathom the idea that anyone would want to withhold life-saving weather data and NWS products for profit. As far as weather models like the ECMWF (European model), you can get model runs for free off of a number of websites. I use sites like Pivotal Weather and Penn State's E-wall to verify NWS forecasts and make my own conclusions. The only data that may still be totally privatized is lightning mapper data, but there's a website called that gives free real-time lightning locator data.

  • Of course it's BS to think that the head of National Weather Service won't divulge insider info to his family-run business. It's also BS to think that Biden never did the same for his son's investment bank, Rosemont Seneca, on multiple occasions. And it's BS that this show, which prides itself on the investigative journalism of others, has a double standard: calling out a weak case of the head of the National Weather Service enriching his immediate family but ignoring multiple major cases of the VP enriching his immediate family with his access to the executive branch's decision making process and to government purse strings.
