Excuse me Mr. Mike, I guess it is my best defense. Boy you are the most bitter human I have met in a long time.

Make that Statement

Inaccurate read: You're confusing contemptuousness for bitterness.

But me being rotten in your estimation doesn't make the NHC any less incompetent -- and that fact would have occurred to a smarter person before he hit the send button.

Are you done yet?

You're awfully good at the straight-faced sarcasm game, Rolltide -- you actually had me going there for a post or two!

Damn Mike, that was supposed to be a compliment. With your superior intellect (sic), I just thought you might be a member. I guess you also hate Mensa. At this rate, we will have a full psychological profile on you soon.

If you want to spend all your time hating the NHC and what you believe are the incompetent forecasters, as I said before all the best to you. I can tell you one thing – the NHC will NOT ever be privatized. You and your fellow NHC haters can bit** and moan all you want but it is not going to happen. You can as you said “pound ‘em silly…”, spend all your money trying to lobby any legislation for that to happen, but that would be a waste of your money. So as you said in an earlier post, “There. Take it to the bank.”

With reference to the “incompetent forecasters” – I would take their forecasts over yours any day of the week. Your pompous and self-serving attitude, your own feeling that you are superior is nothing but a laugh. Actually, I am beginning to wonder if this is just your way to get everyone all riled up. Hate to tell you but is not working. Yes, you might get a few converts, but those are the ones that are vulnerable, but in the end they come back.
Enough said.

Rita Prediction Thread

I would like everybody to go and look at how many people were right in that thread. The signs were fairly obvious (after all, even I got it), and yet NHC said Galveston. Galveston, Galveston, Galveston. Even looking at the Rita thread, there were members and friends of residents who would not evacuate because it was "supposed to hit Galveston". Not only did the NHC underforcast, but they unneededly caused largest evacuation ever (in the wrong area with record heat) and could have cost lives because they got their forcast wrong! Even if I'm not perfect (which I'm not), and even if Mike is not (although he's pretty damn good), people actually listen to the NHC and their lives depend on them, so it is quite simply irresponsible for them to miss a forcast like that.

When I see a false premise like that, I know it's my cue to cut straight to the end.

The image above is perfect evidence of the either endemic incompetence at the NHC, or deliberate "tweaking" (i.e., falsification) of actual events.

Tropical Storm Gamma was *not* derived from an eastern Caribbean tropical depression (which the NHC had forecast to move westward and intensity). It in fact developed from a strong tropical low north of Panama which moved northwest (and showed a clear surface whirl before striking Nicaragua) and re-emerged north of Honduras; during this time, the eastern Caribbean depression was sheared and completely stripped on convection, and LLC completely stretched and elongated out of existence as a east-west surface front set up to the northeast of the Panama low.

All of this was starkly obvious on visible satellite imagry, meaning there's utterly no excuse for it.

(The remnants of TS Gamma, btw, are currently moving southeast toward another developing low north of Panama; the low is obviously larger and will cannibalize the Gamma remnants.)

Geez - Give me a break. I can't believe that anyone (other than Mike) would really start to listen to these outrageous claims. Do you really think any of these forecasters would try to "tweak" the data and jeopardize their careers? They have spent too many years getting to where they are now, away from family at times, only to do something as stupid as that??? Come on people, enough of these ridiculous claims.
