“A Failure To Communicate” by James Spann

https://medium.com/@spann/a-failure-to-communicate-b3005808ee#.ku33op8c3

“We must rethink our use of maps, the way we write forecasts and discussions, and the overall techniques of communicating weather. I don’t have the answers now, but I know we must change.

Add to the mix the problem of local and national media outlets coming up with their own watches, warnings, and severe weather indices, and this whole thing could really go down the tubes in a hurry. We can’t even agree on “call to action” statements during tornado warnings. One TV person says “you must be underground” to survive, another one says “drive south”, and another one says “get into a small room on the lowest floor of your home”.”

Clear, dry and cool for Wednesday evening in the Mid-South. Maybe TOO dry as wildfire danger remains high within the area. Hope remains for some rain by week’s end and a very cool weekend ahead of us. Details on tonight’s edition of WREG News Channel 3 exclusive video weatherblog Weather Overtime. #ShareAndEnjoy

Your presidency is an unprecedented opportunity for positive change in the world. Reducing the threat of nuclear war and nuclear winter will make the United States safer and richer, and cement your status as a world leader. Please take advantage of this chance to be a real winner.

“When we consider the founders of our nation: Jefferson, Washington, Samuel and John Adams, Madison and Monroe, Benjamin Franklin, Tom Paine and many others; we have before us a list of at least ten and maybe even dozens of great political leaders. They were well educated. Products of the European Enlightenment, they were students of history. They knew human fallibility and weakness and corruptibility. They were fluent in the English language. They wrote their own speeches. They were realistic and practical, and at the same time motivated by high principles. They were not checking the pollsters on what to think this week. They knew what to think. They were comfortable with long-term thinking, planning even further ahead than the next election. They were self-sufficient, not requiring careers as politicians or lobbyists to make a living. They were able to bring out the best in us. They were interested in and, at least two of them, fluent in science. They attempted to set a course for the United States into the far future — not so much by establishing laws as by setting limits on what kinds of laws could be passed. The Constitution and its Bill of Rights have done remarkably well, constituting, despite human weaknesses, a machine able, more often than not, to correct its own trajectory. At that time, there were only about two and a half million citizens of the United States. Today there are about a hundred times more. So if there were ten people of the caliber of Thomas Jefferson then, there ought to be 10 x 100 = 1,000 Thomas Jefferson’s today.

Where are they?
