Letter: Morals of weather

Sir: Janet Hind Duff (Letters, 19 February) is weary of hearing television presenters making our future weather sound like a wartime bombing raid. I am similarly weary of the facile adjectives of moral approval or disapproval reminiscent of wartime.

Hot weather is "good", even though many people, like me, thoroughly dislike hot weather. Rain is "bad", even if our reservoirs are three-quarters empty. Isn't weather forecasting meant to be an amoral science?
