      For Nesbitt and a growing cohort of young meteorologists, the chaos wrought by climate change requires radically rethinking some of meteorology’s core concepts. As a discipline, meteorology is based on the idea that the climate is a constant; within each year, season or day, only a certain number and range of variable weather events are possible. But because that constant has itself become a variable, Nesbitt thinks the field needs to take a big step back and begin again with the basics: close observations of how storms develop and behave. “We thought we knew how the climate and weather operated,” he told me. “But now we have to think more like astronomers — like we don’t know what’s out there.”
