State climatologists, meteorologists make no claims on climate change

State Climatologists and National Weather Service staffs continue to ignore, downplay and mislead the public on climate change and global warming.
"While the State Climatology Office is not actively involved in scholarly work investigating the issue of climate change, our Office is often called upon to offer scientific opinions on the topic. The subject matter is of professional interest to us, but we make no claim of expertise in this highly complicated and politicized field of study."

Here is a link to 124 National Weather Service (NWS) offices which are failing to provide education material to the public on climate change - and how climate change is having effects on U.S. weather.

Climate change is considered a "politicized field of study" because government agencies (NWS, with it's local connections) has made and kept it political.
