TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CLIMATE CHANGE DENIER FOX4 METEOROLOGIST MIKE THOMPSON CALLS IT QUITS!!!
After an EPIC 40-year career, Kansas City weather dude Mike Thompson is calling it quits.
He has been with Fox4 since 1992 and will be leaving on December 21st.
Update, here's his social media statement:
"At some point in everyone's life, you reach a point where you are faced with a tough decision. I've been blessed to have been on the air for just shy of 40 years, 27 of them spent here at FOX4, but I have decided to conclude my television career on December 21st. I am reading all of your wonderful responses to my announcement. They all mean so much to me, and I appreciate every one. I still have a couple of weeks on the air, and I will savor each opportunity to inform and entertain a little bit on the way. This is not a goodbye...nor a real retirement. Just a new beginning for me...and my wife who is in a state of panic since I'll be home in the evening for the first time in years. I sure hope she doesn't go crazy with me hogging the TV remote! :-) Thank you all so much for being a part of my life for so many years!" ~Mike
Most plebs think of the weather dude as a kindly soul who tells jokes with anchors and reassures locals regarding the forecast.
The reality is that he's also a bit of a culture warrior . ..
Remember back in 2008 he compared advocates of global warming to Hitler in a controversial online tirade that his station worked diligently to try and wipe from the Internets.
And then, the the Pitch confirms his Hitler juxtaposition AND offers a perspective on Thompson's church chat argument on the idea that God designed the planet in such a way that it prevents us from doing any harm, no matter what: "God created a resilient earth," reads the newsletter account of his presentation. "(Thompson) stated that to keep earth's balance, God designed it to sustain us and feels there is evidence to support this view."
Meanwhile, weather.com and NASA seem to disagree about climate challenges.
NASA - Scientific consensus: Earth's climate is warming
Nevertheless, there's no denying this weather news dude enjoyed a remarkable career that deserves more than a bit of consideration along with the fate of the planet.
