Joe Bastardi: Meteorologist, Bodybuilder, and Penn State Wrestler - Is Weather Weaponized?

Weatherbell's Chief Forecaster, Joe Bastardi, joins the podcast to share lessons and opinions gained from decades of experience reporting the weather. Joe has been obsessed with the weather since he was a small child, and he possesses a mind-blowing knowledge of global weather history. In addition to being a popular weather media personality, Joe still competes as a bodybuilder into his 60s. We discuss Joe's values in the realm of scholarship, search for truth, asking questions, individualism, inconsistencies, arrogance, CO2, water vapor, weaponized weather, weather history, extreme events, counterexamples, and Joe's proposed policy solutions.
