    Maybe NOAA could take a cue from the commercial imaging systems and charge companies like the Weather Channel for their data. "Hey Cantore, hate to see you get scooped by Accu-Weather on this Cat 3 that's about to level the Carolinas, but no bucks, no Buck Rogers."

    time to punish them ... but oil companies need $4 billion and the Teaidiots still think it's about cutting the cost of oppressive gubbmint

    What fun is it to be forewarned about incoming hurricanes and such. Back in the day it was such a nice surprise to wake up and find your car in your bedroom.

    Come to think of it, God is not into warning us about incoming weather, but humans are.

    satellites are just a way to send secret socialist signals to people and control them
