I often call meteorology the "Rodney Dangerfield of the Sciences" because we usually get no respect.
Now comes an article contending meteorologists are overpaid.
Weatherman/woman might be the greatest gig around. Using a combination of science and technology, meteorologists report on the weather. Yes, you need to have charm and charisma in abundance. But do you need to be accurate? Not so much. Americans are obsessed with the weather, but we also understand that it’s near impossible for you to give us a good forecast more than three days out. This may be the one job where you can be 100% wrong, and no one is mad at you.
Two words: Hurricane Sandy.
