A Simple Experiment That Meteorologists Refuse To Do
There is a simple experiment that will revolutionize our understanding of atmospheric processes, and meteorologists refuse to do it. The experiment is simply a measurement of the weight of moist air compared to the weight of dry air, all other factor being controlled. But it doesn’t matter since meteorologists won’t do the experiment. The experiment is simple. It woudn’t cost more than $200. Yet they won’t do the experiment.
Why won’t they do the experiment? Because the results will show that moist air is heavier than dry air. That would mean moist-air convection is impossible. And they choose to believe in moist-air convection. Consequently they ignore all evidence that doesn’t fit with what they choose to believe.
And these are the people we’ve entrusted to study severe weather?
