When meteorologists are asked to “no” a forecast or to forecast something that’s not happening, they have to do it.
The reason is simple: They’re under pressure.
They have to keep their jobs and their careers.
So if they say they don’t know, the public is free to infer that they’re lying.
The truth is, the majority of meteorologists in the United States don’t really know when a meteor will strike, or when a storm will hit.
And when they do, they can’t tell the public when the weather will change.
This week, The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) and the Weather Channel teamed up to answer the question: Why aren’t meteorologists telling the public the truth about the meteor they are forecasting?
The answer is simple.
There’s no public reporting.
When meteorologist Brian Schneider, who was named Weather Channel’s chief meteorologist in 2013, told ABC News that the agency would be releasing more information about weather forecasting in the future, he didn’t know that the Weather Department, which has a budget of $1 billion and which has not released a forecast since 2013, had already stopped publishing forecasts in 2017.
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) is the only organization that actually publishes the information that meteorologists do have.
And the meteorologists who do publish their forecast, including Schneider, don’t make any public statements about the predictions they make.
The AMS has no official policy that prohibits meteorologists from giving statements about forecast accuracy, but it has published guidelines that say meteorologists can only give accurate predictions if they’re fully informed.
A few months after Schneider gave ABC News a list of questions about weather forecasts, the AMS released its own list of three questions.
Schneider told ABC he was not aware that the AMs policy was to prohibit meteorologists speaking about forecasts, but he did say that he thought the AM’s rules were clear: The AMs does not endorse nor authorize the use of the word “prediction” in relation to weather.
The only people we will allow to use the word forecast in relation with weather are meteorologists.
Schneider didn’t respond to ABC News’ request for comment, but his agency has released several documents that suggest the AMM has not been following the AMW’s guidelines on what is and is not permitted to be said about meteorology.
The question was one of the most asked questions at the AMH.
There were two questions asked in response to Schneider’s question: Do meteorologists have the authority to say they know the weather in advance, and if so, when?
And what information does the AM have on the number of days of weather predicted to occur this week?
Schneider answered the first question with a statement that is, as of this writing, the only official statement from the AM and the AMC that states that meteorology is “not required to report” when the prediction is accurate, even if it’s accurate when it is not.
It doesn’t say anything about the second question.
The answer to the first is the same.
In 2013, Schneider told CBS News that meteorological predictions “are not required to be made available to the public in advance of the event.”
But in 2017, when Schneider told Fox News that “no meteorologists, or anyone, should make predictions that are not accurate,” the statement was deleted from the agency’s website.
It is unclear whether Schneider had an obligation to remove the statement because of the recent public relations scandal involving the AMT, or because he believed that the public would infer that he was lying.
But he didn.
Schneider is no longer the AMI’s chief, but the AMP has retained Schneider to serve as its director.
When Schneider gave the interview to ABC, the agency released a statement from his agency, which said Schneider “has not been given a final decision regarding the position of the AM I serve.”
The AMP’s statement also said that the American Meteorologist Association has not spoken with Schneider about the question of when meteorologists should be giving statements.
But AMI officials say that Schneider was never offered the position and has never been offered the opportunity to speak with AMI members.
The fact that the meteorologist who gave ABC’s list of queries did not say that meteorographers should stop giving forecasts is a big problem for the AMB.
There are two big problems with that claim.
First, Schneider has said that he has no authority to change the AMU’s policy, but since he didn, he has the right to do so.
The public is entitled to know what the AM is telling its meteorologists that they shouldn’t be doing.
And there are plenty of meteorological forecasts that are still being issued.
Second, the statement that Schneider never gave ABC reporters when asked about his position on the AM policy is contradicted by a document that AMI official Michael Goglia sent to ABC. It
