NOAA Assailed For Defending Trump's Hurricane Dorian Claim

WASHINGTON —
Former top officials of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are assailing the agency for undermining its weather forecasters as it defends President Trump’s statement from days ago that Hurricane Dorian threatened Alabama.

They say NOAA’s action risks the credibility of the nation’s weather and science agency and may even risk lives.

The critics served both Republican and Democratic presidents. Among them are former NOAA officials and a former disaster response chief.

“This rewriting history to satisfy an ego diminishes NOAA,” Elbert “Joe” Friday, former Republican-appointed director of the National Weather Service, said on Facebook. He told the Associated Press on Saturday: “We don’t want to get the point where science is determined by politics rather than science and facts. And I’m afraid this is an example where this is beginning to occur.”

The previous evening, a statement issued by NOAA without attribution to any specific individuals lent support to Trump’s warning days earlier that Alabama faced danger from Dorian, even though Alabama had never been included in official hurricane advisories and his information was outdated.
