Some TV meteorologists are afraid to talk about climate science for fear of blowback from Tea Party reality deniers. Not WCVB’s Harvey Leonard, and that’s earning him the thanks of hundreds of viewers. Reports Matt Perkins of the Lexington Patch:
Leonard appeared in a segment in early February to explain the connection between global warming and severe weather patterns, and to discuss how global warming is driving more drought, more heavy precipitation and stronger storms.
More than 570 viewers co-signed the thank you card that [Nancy] Nolan and [Paul] Lauenstein delievered on Tuesday, March 12. The two residents are members of Forecast the Facts, an organization that aims to ensure Americans receive accurate information about climate change.
