Mike Smith (who bears the unfortunate circumstance of having the combination of two of the most common names in the United States), who serves as the Senior Vice President at Accuweather, is the author of an excellent book describing the incredible advances made in weather forecasting and storm prediction, recently spoke at the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana on how little recognition is given to meteorologists and proposes some solutions to that issue. His fifteen minute talk is very well done and worth a watch if you are at all interested in the science of meteorology. Check it out below.
Thanks for allowing to indulge my obsession with the weather. Don't worry, I'll be back next week with more great Standard Pauper content. See you then!
