Joe Bastardi ROCKS!

Global Warming

Joe Bastardi.  He’s a weather guy.  Not the “Here’s today’s forecast” kind of predictor, but rather, “Here’s the weather pattern for the coming season/year…and here’s why.”   What made Mr J stand out to me, however, is not his right-on analysis (he predicted the tornado mayhem in the south a few weeks before the destruction) but his unabashed “anti-global warming” stance.  For instance, when former Vice-president Al Gore said the following on sixty minutes (march 2008): 

 ..I think that those people (global warming skeptics) are in such a tiny, tiny minority now with their point of view, they're almost like the ones who still believe that the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and those who believe the world is flat. That demeans them a little bit, but it's not that far off

Joe responded in part:  I am absolutely astounded that someone who refuses to publicly debate anyone on this matter and has no training in the field narrated a movie where frames of nuclear explosions were interspersed in a subliminal way in scenes of droughts and flood, among other major gaffes, can say these things and then have them accepted... by anyone.

You see, Joe, studying weather patterns and applying logic to the historic data; comes up with accurate predictions.  Accurate enough to have businesses coming to his new WeatherBell consulting firm in order to help them manage their future “risk” associated with what’s comin’ down the meteorological pike.  And, since Mr Bastardi doesn’t carry the need to prove, or justify a Politically Correct anti-carbon forecast; his body of work is free from the inevitable “lean,” and his record, quite frankly, speaks for itself.  And dear reader, at the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter how many titles are in front or initials behind a name; or if the whole world “sees” the King’s imaginary cloths.  The truth is…his royal highness is naked; and thank God there are a few fearless fellows not afraid to says so.
