I am a proud member of the International Association of Broadcast Meteorologists. Many of us who do weather on TV and radio realise that we may very well be the only person of science the average person sees each day. Those of us in the IABM take that responsibility very seriously. We strive to give accurate information on not only weather but on science in general.
Paul Gross of the IABM and the chair of the AMS Station Science Committee has an excellent editorial in the most recent issue of the IABM journal UP FRONT. (Full disclosure- Paul is a friend, and I am a member of the committee)
Here is a well reasoned and fact based look at the issue. I deserved wider dissemination than just us TV science types.
I have my own little mention in the UP FRONT. It is a summary of my trip to Antarctica. You can read it below.
