Report: China hacked into NOAA/NWS Systems
« on: November 12, 2014, 11:56:28 AM »
So...remember back a couple of months ago when a lot of NWS sites went offline...satellites were down for "maintenance" and HQ was sending out messages about the reliability of the NCEP models (NAM/GFS) being degraded? Turns out the Chinese were hacking into NOAA's systems...

Was it Obama's fault or Bush's fault?

I highly doubt Tipper is talking to Al these days.
