Meteorologist Joe Martucci chats with his old Rutgers University Meteorologist Professor and current chair of the Department of Environmental Science at Rutgers, Tony Broccoli. Broccoli tells a few stories about his edible last name and what got him interested in the weather (2:45). He then discusses how he made the career move from weather to climate (7:10).
Broccoli also has a new book out about climate change. The two discuss climate change in South Jersey and how we’re better forecasting it (11:40).
Later, Broccoli discusses his prominent role at Rutgers and how DES is keeping the soil and water clear in the Garden State (20:02). Martucci and Broccoli then wrap up by recapping the big weather conference in Boston during January (25:11) and giving some pizza advice at the Jersey Shore (28:15).
About the author, Joe Martucci, Meteorologist:
This is my first newspaper but not my first forecast for NJ. I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers. Two TV internships gave me a taste for the newsroom. Then, after nearly 4 years in private NJ weather, I’m forecasting South Jersey for you.
