Your conclusions were the exact opposite of what I got when I talked
to your NWS colleagues. In conversations they would give me the
current line from their powers that be, (Gore was the intellectual
guru at the time) Then they would look over their shoulder to see
who was nearby and then say they didn't believe that GW was anything
more than a statistical fluke. You in the NWS are not in entire
agreement and I have no problem with that but NWS should be as non
political agency as there could be. Shame it isn't.
In a recent post you asked who the hell was tarh7777. Well to answer
your question, everything you need to know is in my profile except my
shoe size; and that is a 11D. My academic credentials are at least
equal to yours. You should be at least trying to seek the truth
rather than a political point of view. That is what you are paid for.
