What's your opinion on global warming? well, judging by the extensive media coverage, it's very definitely an issue which seems to polarise the opinions of most people .. so later in the programme, we get a scientific viewpoint from veteran meteorologist, Augie Auer.
Global Warming - most of us have read the articles, heard the reports and have an opinion. But what are the pivotal factors in the discussion and which statistics should we believe? .. to help us sort out the scientific from the sensational, my studio guest is meteorologist and atmospheric scientist, Augie Auer.
August H. "Augie" Auer Jr (10 June 1940 10 June 2007) was an atmospheric scientist and meteorologist in New Zealand.
As a boy growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Auer was reportedly fascinated by weather. After a freak winter storm caused havoc in his home town, he decided to become a meteorologist. He studied meteorology at Colorado State University before getting a job at the University of Wyoming.
Auer was a Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Wyoming for 22 years. A land use typing method to classify land as urban or rural, based on work he published in 1978, is used by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and by the Jamaican National Environment and Planning Agency. His most frequently cited research paper involves ice crystals in clouds.
In 1990, Auer emigrated to New Zealand, becoming Chief Meteorologist for the Meteorological Service of New Zealand Limited from 1990 to 1998. He also presented the weather forecast on TV3 News for several years, often preferring to use colloquialisms instead of technical jargon. Auer was frequently quoted in the New Zealand press regarding weather and climate issues, and was regarded in New Zealand as a "well-known and colourful meteorologist".
In 2006, he helped found the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition in order to argue claims about man-made global warming, leading the MetService to publicly disavow the views of their former Chief Meteorologist. Following the transfer of "climate science" issues from the then New Zealand Meteorological Service into the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) in 1992, Augie become critical of its statements, including those of former associate Jim Salinger.
Augie Auer passed away in June 2007.
