I want that meteorologist on a national program! He’s a great antidote to fake cheeriness & * BIG SMILE * “Have a nice weekend!” (Personal note: W. Michigan is where I born & grew up - thus EXTRA fun!)

Wow yet another rich asshole CEO who wants to make us pay for life saving information. It's time to start shooting these people in the face along with Republitards. I'm kidding of course except I'm not.

If you’re wondering, literally every decision DT makes is designed to harm the United States. Sabotage is not just a song by AC/DC .

I was surprised that he didn't bring up Rick Santorum's earlier efforts on behalf of Accuweather earlier to privatize weather information.

>You can't predict weather for more than 10 days. >Global warming is a real deal and after 10 years there will be... What will be after 10 years? Tell me please, very interesting.

I'm surprised that the 'Orange Sphincter' hasn't declared that the National Weather Service is 'Socialistic' (which it is...) and should be shutdown and replaced by Accuweather.

The first thing Trump did as president was lie about the weather. This is a conspiracy.

Not every system has been undermined in Trump's administration. He is very proudly going against his campaign's populist rhetoric to shore up the status quo of the influence of money in politics and consequently the power of the US military industrial complex. He has only perpetuated and escalated these issues during his presidency, he isn't their inventor.

Yeah, Don;t worry, just ask Minhaj's team to make graphics for NOAA. They will beat accu weather and the weather channel combined in their sleep.

Is Trump actually an apocalypse-craving demon disguised as an idiot? Because he seems to be working toward disaster at every possible angle.

Hi there. Just wondering when the following videos will be available for viewing in New Zealand? - Mobile Homes, WWE, Authoritarianism, Drain The Swamp, Family Separation, State Attorneys General, Saudi Arabia, Brazilian Elections and Brett Kavanaugh. Just checking because the videos before and after them are viewable but not these for some reason? Thank you.

AccuWeather and the Weather Channel are such a joke. There are other weather companies out there that provide weather data for ships and the energy sector. They provide accurate tailored weather forecasts for these customers that the NWS can't support due to man power problems. So they fill the gap with factual accurate information, not BS like the Weather Channel and AccuWeather.

4:26 - what unsettles me the most about that graphic is that not only the arrow ultimately points to my country, it pretty much points the very region I live in!!

Bahahaha we’re more fuck? How is this even possible! Also side note: accu-weather is this prominent!? When I check Accu-weather it says sunny and 10deg... I go out side and it’s a fucking snow storm with -10degrees! Point is; they suck donkey Ds

how to go from walthy to disgustingly rich: - take something owned by everyone, payed for by everyone (weather service) - lobby politicians to privatize it - buy it - charge fees

Me, at the start of the video: "I wonder what the problem with 'weather' could be? How can this be a thing on LWT?" Me, 10 minutes in: "Okay, the video might have been called 'Weather services'. But at least it's an episode about the private sector messing up and not Trump doing sh*t again." Me, 2 minutes later: "......... should've known better."
