Should we stop talking about "nice weather"?

Climate change alarmists have long drummed into our heads that climate and weather are not the same thing. A blizzard raging in the US doesn't prove that global warming doesn't exist, they say - rightly so. But now, of all things, the banal everyday phrase "nice weather" is to be banned - because of the climate. The ZDF weather announcer Özden Terli prefers to “contextualize” weather phenomena in the future.

Terli is acting with the same motives as the 500 French journalists who have pledged to stop using images of children eating ice cream to cover heatwaves. They all think their audience is stupid. The media user is able to understand that "nice weather" is a colorful term.

On a sunny day, no one will call out “Nice weather today?” to a farmer waiting for rain across the drying field. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and if it's a child's eye looking forward to the pool, "nice weather" remains an appropriate phrase.

For the author, "nice weather" is a downpour over Lower Saxony

Nice weather is overrated. When it's hot, some people are "more of an omelet than a person", as Nietzsche puts it, others love rain, fog, frost or only blossom when the weather is generally harmless. In other words: Feeling the weather is subjective. Above all, I would like meteorologists to provide knowledgeable information about what is and what is coming and why.

The prediction skills have developed fantastically, I see that as a cultural advance. To my mind, the TV weather people in front of the video walls wouldn't have to constantly wave their arms and wipe like the evil magician Petrosilius Zwackelmann, as if they were the ones conjuring up all the hours of sunshine and low-lying foothills.

But good. However, the climate development is part of the sober forecast. It is right to address the changing circumstances. You are not beautiful. They will concern us more than the weather. They belong to reality. In which weather you go to the swimming pool or stay at home is up to you.

The author likes 25 degrees Celsius and the novel "The Weather 15 Years Ago"
