Hi *****,

The Shannon Radar has now resumed normal service.

Kind Regards

I'd prefer something better than their "normal service"

Old website is much easier to read with less clatter and no unnecessary information (for some crazy reason there is "Ireland" marked TWICE on new map for example). It is also much easier to animate giving better view if you try to predict rainfall movement and growth.
It may be easier on new one to see how is the weather at the moment over the place you heading to (with higher detail map) but I use Rainfall radar mostly to predict more or less if do I need my umbrella for next few hours or not.

I find Meteoradar best for prediction.

Select forecast.

Yes, they need to include the fact that natural events also affect climate, just like it has done so since the planet cooled sufficiently for climate change to commence.

IF Met Eireann want to be all politically correct they have no business talking about climate change because they are meteorologists not climatologists but I suppose they can use the get out of jail "all scientists agree man is causing climate change" BS and just keep the agenda going and going while it's of popular opinion, they're even teaching this rubbish science in schools instead of teaching them real science and then listening to these kids talk about it on the radio it's truly sad.

They should teach them the science of Radio and get them studying for their Ham Radio license , why ? because it's fun and because it teaches them real science , about how radio works and it can teach them to communicate to the outside world in the event of a modern communications blackout or shut down and also because without Radio they wouldn't have internet and teach them why that is, explain modern uses of radio, mobile phones, Wifi, Cell towers etc.

I was fascinated with science in School, it was my best subject but unfortunately what we were thought was also rubbish with little in the way of practical material.

Teaching about radio teaches them about electronics and how the atmosphere is responsible for global communications , they can build stuff and they can include modern digital electronics with radio and how the two together can provide say text communications to someone the far side of the planet with just a few watts of power using a simple radio and a raspberry pi.

Instead they brainwash Children and older secondary school children about climate change nonsense.

At least teach them the science of Weather, real science.

Who are these scientists ? are they all the worlds scientists or just climatologists ? pity they never come out in public and say they support the Global scam or they don't.

I tend to agree, but I imagine, as Meteorologists, that Met Eireann staff would have a far greater understanding of climate, and most certainly the Irish climate, than these so-called 'climatologists' and 'climate scientists', whom, without this climate agenda thing to cling onto, are basically not of much use or value to the functioning of society.

What even is a 'climate scientist' anyway? Seems to be a very loose term to give some sort of air of 'authority'.

Good question, and for some reason when I hear it asked, I am always reminded of that scene in the 'Wizard of Oz' when they uncover who the 'wizard' really is.

Not really weather related, but a good video on long term climate change.

Well worth the 55 minutes it'll take to watch.

Climate change has become a major political issue, but few understand how climate has changed in the past and the forces that drive climate. Most people don't know that fifty million years ago there were breadfruit trees and crocodiles on the shores of the Arctic Ocean, or that 18,000 years ago there was a mile-thick glacier on Manhattan and a continuous belt of winter sea ice extending south to Cape Hatteras. The History of Climate provides context of our current climate debate and fundamental insight how the climate works.

Dr. Daniel Britt is a Professor of Astronomy and Planetary Sciences at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida. He was educated at the University of Washington and Brown University, receiving a Ph.D. from Brown in 1991. He has had a varied career including service in the US Air Force as an ICBM missile launch officer and an economist for Boeing before going into planetary sciences. He has served on the science teams of two NASA missions, Mars Pathfinder and Deep Space 1. He was the project manager for the camera on Mars Pathfinder and has built hardware for all the NASA Mars landers.

Britt currently does research on the physical properties and mineralogy of asteroids, comets, the Moon, and Mars under several NASA grants.
