Hullo! My name is Brent. I’m just a nerd who fancies squirrels, comics, cartoons, video games, root beer, cereal and collecting random junk.

My state's chief meteorologist is a climate change denier.

James Spann is a household name in Alabama. We hear him on the radio and see him on TV all the time. Heck, I've got an ABC 33/40 lunchbox with his picture on it. He's a super smart guy when it comes to weather science and geography, and I'm sure he's a kind soul; however, he is a staunch climate change denier and believes the Earth is only 6,000 years old. The fact that he's a young Earth creationist is irrelevant, but interesting nonetheless.


I have nothing but respect for James Spann, but I think some of his ideas are silly and it's surprising to me that such an experienced scientist would have them. I'm not an expert of course, but I do trust the scientific consensus that climate change is a thing. Could 99.9% of climatologists be totally wrong? It's certainly possible. But here's how I look at it - if 999 doctors told me I needed one drug to save my life, but one other doctor said, "Nah, you need crystals, my dude", I would trust the 999 other doctors. James Spann is a brilliant guy when it comes to meteorology, but just because somebody is an expert in one area doesn't mean I should trust his or her judgement in other areas. Rocket scientists and brain surgeons are both super smart people, but you wouldn't want them doing each other's jobs. Leave climate science to the climatologist~


Anyways, don't take any of this to heart. These are just the random ramblings of a stranger on the Internet. I snow nothing, John No.
