I don’t want to insult anyone. I am sure it is an interesting subject to learn about, but as a way to make a living why would anyone study Meteorology?
There are over 150 universities offering degrees in Meteorology. What do these graduates do? Most TV and radio weatherpersons have meteorology degrees. Do they really need these degrees? Every weather report from every channel is the same. They all come from the National Weather Service. Do these weatherpersons really need a Meteorology degree?
How many Meteorologists work for the National Weather Service? I have never met anyone who claimed Meteorology as his occupation. Most TV/radio weatherpersons probably work in small markets and do not make the big bucks. I would think that these people would also need a communications degree.
Every blizzard, hurricane or torrential rain storm, the weather dude/dudette has to go out in the street and scream over howling winds that it is snowing, raining, or really fricking windy. Do they really need a meteorology degree for that?
TV weathergirls are all insanely attractive. Do schools offering Meteorology degrees only accept attractive women? Is cleavage helpful in analyzing and reporting the weather?
Hmmm…I think I just figured out why men study Meteorology.
