Meteorologists Speak Out October 14, 2012 : 5:20 PM

Meteorologists are demanding Congress create a commission to confront extreme weather:

“A coalition of meteorology leaders asked Congress today to create the first-ever U.S. Weather Commission to confront the costs of weather on the U.S. economy and its toll on human lives.”

“The University Center for Atmospheric Research, which helped to convene the Congressional briefing, says the commission “would advise federal policymakers on setting priorities for improving forecasts and creating a more weather-proof nation.”

“More specifically, the commission would educate Congress on the appropriate satellite and radar investments, research priorities, and the needs of key sectors, UCAR says.”
