For that to work, meteorologists need to get a payment of some sort when they are right. Otherwise, you'd have some deeply indebted meteorologists walking around. :)

I found your snow - it got sent to Toronto by mistake. I'll see if FedEx can deliver ASAP.

This is more satire, right?

Why don't we also just pass laws fining scientific researchers if they don't find cures to all diseases within the next 6 months?

I think we should have a contest among nations as to whose politicians can propose the dumbest things. This mayor has definitely scored a goal for Russia...

But it's still worth pondering if meteorologists have the proper incentives.

Maybe the meteorologist with the most sensational forecast brings more business to his TV station (biggest snowstrom of the season coming, story at 11). So the free market encourages inaccurate forecasts.

"The Naked News" can now feature "The Naked Weather"! That would bring in new viewers, regardless of accuracy. :)

By meterologists, you are clearly writing about the media versions here. By the same logic, if meterologists are fined for incorrect information, do we also fine reporters for inaccurate information. Imagine the family of someone killed in Iraq suing a reporter who reported in error prior to the war that Iraq had WMD.

The tv meterologists aren't the only type of prediction available. There are commercial services which sell weather forcasts to businesses which depend upon such information. I don't know how their accuracy compares, but I would hope they are better than the free weather reports if people are paying for their predictions. Maybe they need to be more accurate to stay in business, or maybe they aren't, as we know how many suckers there are out there.
