  1. Jim Kramper is such great interview on weather. You can tell he loves to talk about it. I think I threw him off a little bit when I asked him if lesbians, not global warming, cause destructive weather. When the Society of Environmental Journalists visited the National Weather Service offices in Norman, Oklahoma, in October, we were met at the door by the Westboro Baptist Church. They were yelling at us journalists in SEJ that God causes bad weather because of immoral lesbians, not because of any climate change. Kind of interesting that those who are in denial about global warming have allies in the Westboro Baptist Church.
