Regarding Hurricanes: David Ridenour on New York Fox TV; Says NOAA Should Focus on What It Can Do Well

Fox 5 TV in New York City marked the beginning of the official hurricane season with a report on what we might (or might not!) see in terms of hurricanes and named storms this year.

National Center for Public Policy Research Vice President David Ridenour (usually referred to in this blog as “husband David”) is included in the report.

David believes NOAA should stop publicizing its hurricane predictions because climate science is not yet sophisticated enough for these predictions to be done well. David says the agency should be very careful to protect its credibility with the public, so people will trust NOAA’s advice about evacuations and/or seeking cover when a hurricane is literally headed their way.
