Finally: Others Are Noticing Weather Science Has "Tamed" the Weather

"Taming" the weather...from a well-done article in the New Yorker:

It’s easy to forget that behind each [weather] prediction is one of humankind’s greatest accomplishments.
The article tells the story, from a European perspective, how weather forecasting came to be mankind most successful forecasting endeavor. The article is extremely well done until its final paragraph which, unfortunately (and, inevitably these days) goes into global warming. No, storms are not getting worse and no, weather forecasting is not more difficult these days.

If you wish to read a "global warming-free" story of the development of the storm warning system that saves so many lives, just scroll down.
