Quote: It's not really top secret, but it is still technically experimental and the NHC/US govt. pays good money to FSU to obtain the forecasts, develop the model, and keep it proprietary. There are patents out on the processes used in the model, for what its worth.
I know this will sound stupid, but if the U.S. Government is paying for it, then WE the TAXPAYERS are funding it. Therefore, just like we are entitled to see what else they're spending our money on, we should have access to it also.
But who listens to me? Not even my dog.
