In another life, Fox 4 meteorologist Mike Thompson might have had any number of careers…
Flat Earth Cartologist, Witch Doc, Bloodletter, Turner of Gay People to Straight – you get the picture. Whatever entailed ignoring science and clinging to antiquated beliefs.
After all, we do live in Kansas – many of us anyway. You know, where the earth was created in seven days and some chick named Eve turned us all into pervs by chomping into an apple.
Forget what the vast majority of scientists say, Thompson says climate change is hocus pocus.
The latest: KSHB TV weather wonk Gary Lezak plans to clear things up February 13th.“I’m doing a whole special on climate change then,” Lezak says. “That’s the target date.”
Speaking of which, what about yesterday’s tropical temps?
It was the warmest January 28th in Kansas City history,” Lezak says. “It was 74 degrees, 76 downtown. And it was the second warmest January day in Kansas City history.”
What about that snowfall Lezak predicted late last year?
Relax, it’s coming.
“It’s going to snow in the morning,” Lezak says.
As for whether we’re on target for the warmest winter, not so fast Lezak says.
“No, it’s colder this year than it was last year. Much colder. Four to five degrees colder.”
