Nope, Accuweather said they did not fire him, he just quit without any notice!!!!


Surprise! Joe Bastardi's gone
Just like that ... Joe Bastardi checked out of Accu-Weather.

The first word that Bastardi had left the Pennsylvania-based private meteorological company came about 4:30 p.m. Monday, in the form of announcements from Accu-Weather on various weather bulletin boards and the company's Facebook page.

Bastardi is one of those bigger-than-weather figures, like Jim Cantore at the Weather Channel, or even Steve Lyons, formerly of the Weather Channel.

Bastardi was chief long-range meteorologist at Accu-Weather, and he isn't afraid of controversy. Some might say he thrives on it. He's also seemingly never lacking in self-confidence.

His act doesn't play well with some meteorologists and weather weenies. But others enjoy it. And still others -- myself included -- might not like his style all the time but appreciate his effort to delve into a part of meteorology, long-range forecasting, that is avoided by most scientists. And he delves into it with passion.

Bastardi angers some with his belief that humanity's role in climate change might be superseded by that of natural changes in weather patterns.

That, of course, is politically loaded territory, putting Bastardi at odds with the Al Gore crowd and somewhat in the camp of the Rush Limbaugh conservatives.

Let's face it ... he's a lightning rod (I was waiting to use that one ... sorry).

But now he's gone, after 32 years at Accu-Weather, and it'll be interesting to see what happens next for the company and for Bastardi.

Accu-Weather has said several times since Monday that Bastardi was not fired.

The official statement, through spokesman Justin Roberti: "We wish him the best in his next endeavor, whatever form that might take."

And in answering comments on the Facebook page, Accu-Weather said Bastardi's beliefs about climate change had nothing to do with his departure. One person, posting a note on the website of the newspaper in State College, Pa., where Accu-Weather is based, said he works at the company and said Bastardi just wanted a change.

For Accu-Weather, its Pro website could take a hit. The company charges $24.95 a month or $249.95 a year for subscribers to get advanced-level weather information, and Bastardi's videos and columns were a big hit on that website.

Paul Pastelok has been named to replace Bastardi as chief long-range forecaster, and he wasted little time in making his presence known. Accu-Weather's website, , has a story Thursday from Pastelok, about weather for the coming month.

There was a ruffle -- although less intense -- when Lyons left his position as chief hurricane specialist at the Weather Channel last year and rejoined the National Weather Service at its office in San Angelo, Texas (interestingly, far inland).

Lyons, who became chief meteorologist at the office, said he wanted to return to his roots -- serving the public and forecasting weather.

Sometimes people need a change of scenery and want to try something different.

It'll be interesting to see where Joe Bastardi pops up next.

Huh, NOAA says there is a 70% chance of snow but that they will also get a inch of snow! How can you get an inch of snow if the chance of snow is not 100%?!? And you Libtards think NOAA is smart but Joe Bastardi is stupid?!?
He [Joe Bastardi] is critical of National Weather Service forecasts:
Look at this: TONIGHT...MOSTLY CLOUDY. SNOW LIKELY THIS EVENING...THEN A CHANCE OF SNOW AFTER MIDNIGHT. TOTAL ACCUMULATION AROUND AN INCH. BRISK WITH LOWS IN THE MID 20S. NORTH WINDS 10 TO 20 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 30 MPH. CHANCE OF SNOW 70 PERCENT. I continue to marvel at NOAA forecasts. Does anyone in the NWSFO understand they put out forecasts that make no sense? Why not at least make sense? Now I do have a disagreement with them as to snow totals, for instance at the Jersey Shore where I think they wind up closer to 3 than 1, but that is not my problem. My problem is the darn forecast says they will get an inch, that it is a fact that there will be an inch, but then has SNOW LIKELY THIS EVENING. How the heck can it only be likely? It has to snow to accumulate an inch, doesn't it? How is there a 70% chance of snow, but you say it will accumulate an inch? How can it accumulate an inch, if there is a chance it doesn't fall (30%)?

THE ONLY words I want to here from Kenya-born Obama are "I am sorry I lied to the American people about my actual birthplace and citizenship. I know I am guilty of Treason and hereby surrender to be placed into Federal prison until execution by Firing Squad or deportation after serving a lengthy sentence." He could also mention how he sold his soul to the devil for the privilege of being the antichrist.
After three years and hundreds of hours of research I have reached the conclusion our President is indeed illegal. Adolph Hitler said "The bigger the lie the more people will believe it." To construe a foreigner's son a natural-born American citizen is stretching the truth. But to confer natural-born status on a man who was born a British subject in Africa is a real whopper.
Our President is using a Connecticut Social Security Number even though he never lived or worked in that state. His Hawaiian Birth Certificate appears to be forged and other redflags have popped up concerning our President's birth and citizenship. Still our Congress, our courts and the mass-media ignores this issue. Instead they loudly ridicule anyone who dares mention it. Like with the O.J. Simpson trial justice is again held hostage to the implicit threat of racial-unrest.

Yep, he is not part of the 99% that believes that Global Warmin' is real and made by evil mens.

Stance on Global Warming

Bastardi is skeptical of human-induced global warming.[13][14] He asserts that the world was likely warmer in the 1930s than today, that human contribution of carbon dioxide is too small to have any effect, and warming is caused by sun spots and exchange with warmer oceans.[15] He frequently argues in his columns that extreme weather events occur occasionally and that there is not enough evidence to state that such events are unusual. For example, commenting on major storms and flooding in 2006 Bastardi stated:
I have no doubt this may be some value to human-induced global warming, but there are a lot of things that are happening now that have happened before.

Solar geomagnetic activity at all-time low

Only "zero" could be lower

Oh man, Owl Gore better crank up all of his jets and make enough CO2 to make sure Gorebal Warmin' continues.

9 Jan 2010 - Magnetic activity of the sun is central to Svensmark’s theory of galactic cosmic ray modulation.

As the theory goes, lower magnetic activity of the sun lets more galactic cosmic rays into our solar system, which produce microscopic cloud seed trails in our atmosphere, leading to more cloud cover and thence a cooler planet

Thank gawd, thank gawd Obama has saved us from the next Ice Age.

Administration’s New Climate Report: Next Ice Age ‘Has Now Been Delayed Indefinitely’
February 8, 2013 By Terence P. Jeffrey

( )- A federal advisory committee appointed by the Obama administration to produce a report on climate change says that if Earth’s climate were still “primarily controlled by natural factors”—rather than by man-made global warming—then the next ice age would occur within the next 1,500 years.

But now, because of humans, the committee says, the next ice age has been "delayed indefinitely."

Texas College Students Could Soon Pack Heat
Posted on February 11, 2013

Students with concealed handgun licenses could soon carry guns on Texas college campuses.

More than a dozen state senators have signed on to Senate Bill 182, also known as the “Campus Personal Protection Act.”

The bill’s primary author, Senator Brian Birdwell,said the bill is about preserving the 2nd Amendment.

“This affords CHL holders, one of the most lawful group of citizens in our state, to be able exercise that 2nd amendment right to go on to the campus of higher learning to be able defend themselves and protect their right to self-preservation, God forbid, some act of evil be perpetrated,” Birdwell said.

If passed, the bill would allow CHL holders to bring concealed weapons onto public universities. Private universities could choose to go gun-free.

That Scientific Global Warming Consensus...Not!
Since 1998, more than 31,000 American scientists from diverse climate-related disciplines, including more than 9,000 with Ph.D.s, have signed a public petition announcing their belief that “…there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” Included are atmospheric physicists, botanists, geologists, oceanographers, and meteorologists.
So where did that famous “consensus” claim that “98% of all scientists believe in global warming” come from? It originated from an endlessly reported 2009 American Geophysical Union (AGU) survey consisting of an intentionally brief two-minute, two question online survey sent to 10,257 earth scientists by two researchers at the University of Illinois. Of the about 3.000 who responded, 82% answered “yes” to the second question, which like the first, most people I know would also have agreed with.
:// ell/2012/07/17/that-scientific -global-warming-consensus-not/
Sorry, the 97% figure concerns active publishing climate researchers, not simply people holding a degree in the sciences. Many, if not most, of the 31,000 claimed as scientists are nothing but people who hold only a bachelors degree in the sciences and who have never performed any research at all. A survey that includes as "scientists" veterinarians and physicians is totally worthless insofar as the consensus among CLIMATE SCIENTISTS is concerned.

Ha ha ha ha.

0f the alleged 31,000 "scientists" who doubt the consensus opinion of real climate scientists, over 28,000 are in fields mostly unrelated to climate studies.

Really, why do they include electrical and mechanical engineers? Nothing to do with climatology.

But that number, 31,000 looks really nice if you're a gullible fool.
