Meet Eric Holthaus, the Rebel Nerd of Meteorology | Culture | Rolling Stone
"He covers everything from super typhoons in Hong Kong to walking conditions in Atlanta, tying it all back to the warming planet – which is something many of his colleagues refuse to do.

"The crowd is like 1980s military uniform-type people," he says. "They're prominently conservative Republicans in positions of power, and they want to push the message they believe, politically.""
