From politics to economics, war and even diseases, everything that’s happening now has in some way happened before. The research of weather cycles has offered new insights into our past and what is likely to happen in the future.
For over 25 years, 3F Forecasts (http://www.3fforecasts.com) has published its unique newsletter, offering predictions and insights for how weather affects commodities and the stock market. Under the direction of climatologist Larry Acker, 3F Forecasts’ newsletter employs in-depth research across a variety of disciplines to deliver long-range predictions. With an accuracy rate of over 80-percent, 3F Forecasts has asserted itself among the industry’s most reliable advisory publications.
“This is essential reading for anyone interested in the dynamics of weather and its related agricultural, financial and futures activity,” says Acker. “You will come away with a whole new appreciation for how weather influences our daily lives and shapes our future. If we can anticipate these cycles, we can respond in time.”
3F Forecasts stands for “Futures, Farming and Finance.” 3F Forecasts researches weather cycles for all major agricultural areas of the world. Acker applies this data to determine how weather will affect the futures market and costs of food. As a result, Acker’s readers include farmers, producers, speculators, bankers, crop insurers and even politicians.
“Climatology is a form of history. You’re studying the history of weather and its effects,” says Acker. “Nothing happens in a vacuum. Everything is related, everything is connected. The ability to predict major weather and global events is of tremendous value.”
Acker’s uncanny ability to identify trends and patterns dates back 48 years to his time studying geochemistry and climatology at the University of Illinois.
“It’s a hobby that’s turned into a business and I am busy, especially now,” says Acker. “Every day is different. If things are boring today, don’t worry, tomorrow something is going to happen. It can be politics, economics, the weather; you don’t know what’s coming next and you can discover some really interesting stuff you had no idea was there.”
Close-Up Talk Radio will feature 3F Forecasts in a two-part interview with Jim Masters on October 12th and October 19th at 7:30pm.
