Thank god (Mike) a new thread was started. Hopefuly this thread will not turn into a flame fest like the others with this hurricane as topic.
How can the NHC be so consercative in it's track predictions when 50% of this board was on target with a more eastern landfall than originally predicted DAYS ago?
I have read this board for a long time and have found the information posted on this board is sometimes 24 hours ahead of the NHC predictions.
I have a radical theory as to the reasons, politics.
This board has no political ties to government, we see the facts as they are and arent afraid to make a prediction. This position makes a profound difference in delivery of the facts as they are presented translating into absolute speed. This is how the NHC shoul be, unteathered by politics, more lives would invariably be saved as delivery of information would increase.
