Seriously important stuff... The merde department

There is often uproar about the state of the GPS satellites but no one ever gives much thought to the various weather satellites which are equally important for those of us who sail as well as EVERYONE else!

The QuikSCAT satellite is nearing failure and needs to be upgraded. Of course those who are running things decide what better time to cut funds to NOAA...

Check out Jeff Master's Blog and read it and do what he says... Let your Senators know that cutting funding for the NOAA and voting for Amendment #2666 is a seriously bad idea. The vote is scheduled for this coming Tuesday... So do it NOW!

It is important!
