Anyone have a cow to fart.....

in this woman's face? The methane from this gas bag is hurting the global climate. This is Dr. Heidi Cullen, the Weather Channel's resident Einstein. She believes that if you are a scientitist, not lock, stock in step with 'doom and gloom', 'man is the debull' climatologist orthodoxies, you should be decertified from the American Meteorological Society.

Meteorologists are among the few people trained in the sciences who are permitted regular access to our living rooms. And in that sense, they owe it to their audience to distinguish between solid, peer-reviewed science and junk political controversy. If a meteorologist can't speak to the fundamental science of climate change, then maybe the AMS shouldn't give them a Seal of Approval.

Brilliant way to approach science - 'if you don't subscribe to the norm, you will be ostracized.' When science loses its skeptics, science is done. The only way science advances is by challenging orthodoxies. What a ridiculous hubris for Dr. Cullen to essentially say that skeptics should be marginalised and ignored. Let's interrupt the march of science because meteorologists have access to people's 'living rooms'.
