    Add to my lists, International Ice Patrol to plot icebergs coming

    provided, mostly recorded by USCG and Canadian Aircraft.
    Yes, I know about NOAA and no charge-it's a government funded agency.

    I was talking about STTAB asserting that private entrepreneurs would step in to replace. I don't think so. I do think NOAA is a necessary department.

    They would ruin all of the areas I outlined.

    A sample NOAA web site and all of the things they do. They will vary depending on their locations
    for a NOAA/ NWS location:

    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    To name a few:

    National Weather Service;
    National Fisheries Conservation;
    Marine Mammals protection;
    Partner with USGS (US Geolological Survey)for the Earthquake and Tsunami Warning Centers;
    Partner with the USGS again for volcano observation;
    Partner with the EPA and USCG for pollution response;
    Partner with the USCG to assist in Search and Rescue Planning;
    Partner with FEMA and various state and local Offices of Emergency Services;
    Provide Tide Tables for use by the public and responding agencies for all States along the coasts;
    Provide Great Lakes weather conditions for those states;
    Provide tornado, blizzard, flooding, and severe weather reports to all states.

    That is just a short list that comes to mind
    NONE of those things have anything to do with anything the federal government is tasked with in the COTUS.

    There was no NOAA / NWS when the COTUS was penned, so a straw man's argument.

    Default Begs the question....

    How in the World did ANY OF US, or OUR PARENTS, and GRANDPARENTS survive....before all of those Beuracracy-led things appeared?
    BYE BYE. I'm not Jewish, and I Do Not Drink. 30 years Dry.

    What a waste of time.

    Of course, with that reasoning, there shouldn't be an FAA either. No NASA. No FCC.
