They are not being deceptive, They Posted by: g2d on Jul-03-11 11:09 PM (EST)
are so focused on one problem area that they have lost perspective.
To ask people to stay indoors for half an hour after the last time they hear thunder shows tremendous lack of perspective. To ask people to forgo outdoor recreation when the thunderstorm probability rises above 30% shows that NOAA does not understand the difference between physical life and real life.
Your statement about NOAA being sued is based on legal ignorance. They are in no such danger.
All I want is for NOAA to tell the facts, and the truth about the risk of being harmed by lightning. All of us are in more danger from auto accidents, from risk of drowning, and probably from risk of fire, certain diseases, and from depression and boredom waiting indoors, measuring the amount of time since the last thunder.
