it's Tim's data I am asking about ... all everyone says is ... 'It's really important' and they have quotes of them talking about how if they can just get the probes closer that'll be just that many more lives they'll save' etc ... but that last of course was from their show on 'Discovery' so that comment in and unto itself is melodramatic ...
so again ... just what are the tangible factors of the data that saves lives by measuring the barometric pressure of a tornado already on the ground ... how (if at all) does that equate to storm prediction (which would seem like the real outcome that has potential to save lives) ...
I heard it again this morning on MSNBC's feed at they pimped the Discovery Channel's one hour 'tribute' to the chasers ... the guy said over and over again how vital and important their work was but never once said how it actually contributed to anything ... it's almost as though folks are being told, 'don't you dare question this just accept it was important and leave it at that but make sure you tune in and watch the drama'

I know that chasers perform a valuable function. They help NOAA report real emergencies and less false alarms..
