I have long known that the “weather whores” were trying to influence the thinking of the masses! It disturbs me when television weather reporters try to become much mire important than they really are!

I find this comment offensive and unbased. Frankly, there's no conspiracy of weather scientists trying to "influence the masses" - just a global consensus among the vast majority of all scientists that human created climate change is real based on decades of data. Yes, individuals responses to stimuli can be inflated especially in echo chambers of homogenous beliefs however that does not dispute that records are actually indicating extreme events more often & the other effects of climate change
