February 20, 2017: Europe switches to coal-powered cars in shadow of "dieselgate." More than 70% of BMW and Daimler cars made for the Europed market last year (2016) were diesel. The smog has gotten so bad, the "diesel" policy is being rescinded and folks are being pushed to EVs (coal-powered vehicles).
They observe changes in the atmosphere like astronomers study the stars, analyzing everything from air pressure to water vapor and poring over computer models to arrive at a forecast.
But for all their scrutiny of weather data, many meteorologists part ways with their colleagues — climate scientists who study longer atmospheric trends — in one crucial respect.
Many remain skeptical about whether human activity is causing climate change, as underscored by the recent departure of Mish Michaels from WGBH News.
Michaels, a former meteorologist at WBZ-TV, lost her job as a science reporter at WGBH’s show “Greater Boston” this week after colleagues raised concerns about her views on vaccines and climate change. She had previously questioned the safety of vaccines and the evidence that human activity was causing global warming, both widely held views in the scientific community.A lot of misinformation and repeating of memes and tropes in the article, but this is likely just the first of many such stories.
