A climate expert on the Weather Channel says TV weather forecasters who express skepticism about predictions of manmade catastrophic global warming should lose their official certification.
Heidi Cullen hosts a weekly show on the station. She writes on the Weather Channel Web site that, "If a meteorologist can't speak to the fundamental science of climate change, then maybe the AMS — American Meteorological Society — shouldn't give them a seal of approval. It's like allowing a meteorologist to go on-air and say that hurricanes rotate clockwise."
But in fact — hurricanes DO rotate clockwise — in the southern hemisphere, where they are called cyclones.
