Climate Change Crusader Brian Williams Admits 'Inexact Business of Any Forecast Beyond Five Days'

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, who routinely hypes forecasts declaring climate change an imminent threat to humanity, made a rather stunning admission on Thursday night's broadcast while touting the 2014 predictions from the National Hurricane Center: "Overall, they're predicting eight to thirteen so-called named storms....One or two hurricanes, they predict, will be major, meaning category three or above. But, as you know, it is always the case in the inexact business of any forecast beyond five days, we shall see." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Williams never expressed that kind of skepticism when reporting global warming predictions over the years. Here is a sampling of him pushing the climate change agenda in the most alarmist terms:

7:21 PM ET

BRIAN WILLIAMS: The 2014 Atlantic hurricane forecast is out from the National Hurricane Center. They are predicting, for the record, a quieter season than normal this year, mostly because they expect the development of El Nino.

Overall, they're predicting eight to thirteen so-called named storms, with somewhere between three and six of them developing into hurricane strength. One or two hurricanes, they predict, will be major, meaning category three or above.

But, as you know, it is always the case in the inexact business of any forecast beyond five days, we shall see.
