“I began connecting meteorology and climate with politics and social justice issues in the early 1990s. The Global Climate Coalition may sound like something akin to Greenpeace but consisted of Exxon, the US coal industry, etc. They paraded through international climate meetings during the 1990s in similar ways to the tobacco industry and even had some of the same people as denial ‘experts’. Weather Whys has appeared in the Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal during the past 15 years. My ‘formula’ has included weather summaries, weekly to seasonal forecasts and weather/climate related topics, often about political and social justice issues.”
