If we privatize NOAA and put The Weather Channel AccuWeather in charge of our forecasts, the magic of the free market would make these storms disappear!!!11!

/because AccuWeather would totally be all for launching multi-billion dollar satellite systems into orbit

Obama4Life: Fail in Human Form: s1ugg0: This really is unacceptable. When you consider all the named storms that hit the United States each year and the damage they cause to property and commerce.

Why in god's name is predicting these storms not a top priority for our government?

Why have the government do it when they can contract it out at twice the price?

So are we going to start have storms named Habib or Raj?

Once we turn it over to the corporations we'll probably have a "text your vote" for storm names. They'll try to squeeze every dollar they can out of us.

Can't we borrow someone else's satellites in the meantime?

buzzcut73: BolivarShagnasty: This would never have happened if Santorum could privatize weather forecasting and defunding NOAA like he wanted.

The only conclusion I could come up with when he was talking about that is that Santorum is an idiot.
All of those private forecasting companies (TWC, your local news channel, etc) use the government satellite pictures and radar to come up with their predictions (which aren't usually any better or worse than what NOAA comes up with...because they all use the same data!)

I just recently had an exchange with a Teabagger about this. Willful ignorance can't process the fact that these images are coming from the government.
"But I saw it on Fox 5's news, they get their own images."
"They get the images from the government."
"No, they have private sources."
"Do they have their own satellites?"
"Um..." wanders off

But money spent on satellites means less money for corporate welfare and tax breaks for the rich! Subby is a socialist!

If the same contractors who built satellites built a doghouse, there would be four walls, no roof and no door. The roof would be added in Block 2, and the door would be added on later in a non-contract addition costing nine times the original cost of the doghouse.
