Clown Show: Groveling Meteorologists Apologize for Blowing Blizzard Forecast

Posted by on Jan 27, 2015 at 11:39 am

Remember, they’re scientists or something and we’re supposed to believe their dire warnings about non-existent climate change that may or may not happen.

Meteorologists across the Northeast were scrambling to get back in good graces with the public on Tuesday — apologizing on Twitter for forecasting the “historic blizzard” that never was.

“My deepest apologies to many key decision makers and so many members of the general public,” tweeted National Weather Service meteorologist Gary Szatkowski. “This is a big forecast miss.”

But hey, we at least got to see plenty of live shots of empty streets in America’s largest city. Great job, guys.

Other joined in with the mea culpas. If only we could see such honesty when it’s come to bogus forecasts of impending doom due to so-called global warming.

But nobody seemed to be more sorry they had cried wolf than Szatkowski, who let the twitter apologies fly early Tuesday.

“You made a lot of tough decisions expecting us to get it right, and we didn’t. Once again, I’m sorry,” he tweeted. “I’m sorry for the poor quality weather forecast.”

    Yet, climatologists claim that they can forecast “climate change” accurately for decades, or even centuries, into the future.

    See y’all just don’t get it!! This Global Warming is so turrible that the earth is warming even faster than we feared. So even though we were going to have a HUGE Blizzard, the Global Warming moved in and wiped that out.

    So please get out of your SUVs and ride those busses now while she still got a chance!!

    AGW aside, this beating up on the meteorologists is ridiculous. They made the best guess they could and erred on the side of caution. For the masses of people, most of whom can’t get themselves to work on time, an action they take every damn day, to be berating people who at least are willing to take responsibility is lame.
