Commerce Chief Threatened Firings at NOAA After Trump’s Dorian Tweets, Sources Say

The Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross of flop Census question fame, threatened to fire top employees at the federal scientific agency responsible for weather forecasts last Friday after the agency’s Birmingham office contradicted President Trump’s claim that Hurricane Dorian might hit Alabama, according to three people familiar with the discussion.

That threat led to an unusual, unsigned statement later that Friday by the agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, disavowing the National Weather Service’s position that Alabama was not at risk. The reversal caused widespread anger within the agency and drew accusations from the scientific community that the National Weather Service, which is part of NOAA, had been bent to political purposes.

Politicized weather forecasts :saladga: 

This is NOT normal. It's not right for our "leader"s to try and cultivate truth from blatant lies
