Why we need a National Climate Service

June 5, 2009

The House Committee on Science and Technology yesterday passed a bill to establish a National Climate Service within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

In supporting the establishment of a National Climate Service, Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) said,

“In a climate that is changing, it is imperative that we have reliable information to help us adapt and respond to these changes.”

I must, albeit reluctantly, agree. Just look at what happens when there’s no government agency around to tell people that beach season is over.

    We are getting so bogged down by government bs it’s getting hard to tell which agencies actually contribute to our well being and which are just parasites. This sounds like another parasite to be used by the administration as a siphon to get more of our hard earned income. It fits into the same waste basket as Gore’s green garbage.
