  •  Ask the Weather Channel and Accuweather (4+ / 0-)

    how many weather satellites (WHERE THE DATA ACTUALLY COMES FROM) that they have launched.

    Companies like Earth Ventures (used to be Weatherbug) that actually go out and make thousands of measurements on the ground don't run the weather models that forecast where the hurricane tracks go.   And they are HIGHLY subsidized by government earmarks.  Check it out.

    Ask Accuweather and Weather Channel how they would function without NOAA?  They couldn't.
