Report: Farmersí Almanac more accurate than government climate scientists
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/20/2014 | Michael Bastasch

Posted on 02/20/2014 5:49:13 PM PST by GraceG

This exceptionally cold and snowy winter has shown that government climate scientists were dead wrong when it came to predicting just how cold this winter would be, while the 197-year old Farmers’ Almanac predicted this winter would be “bitterly cold”.

Bloomberg Businessweek reports that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) predicted temperatures would be “above normal from November through January across much of the lower 48 states.”

This, however, was dead wrong. As Bloomberg notes, the CPC underestimated the “mammoth December cold wave, which brought snow to Dallas and chilled partiers in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.”

This does not surprise me. I have been noticing for several decades that often when Europe has a bitter winter, our next winter is bitter. Somebody with more spare time than I have could check out this impression.

Just a reminder...

‘Government Climate Scientists” are the same ones who say it’s only tissue...

Science has become the new weapon of choice from the fascists... except when it doesn’t fit the narrative...

I think these scientist need to get some new chicken bones. The ones they’re using aren’t working.

I think if you look back to the 1920’s that Fascist have used scientist to push their agenda. They use geneticist to push their agenda of exterminating undesirables. When the science doesn’t fit their agenda they simply adjust their propaganda to fit the current wave of science. When there is a cold wave they simply issue a press release stating that this is just exactly what Global Warming scientist predicted.

Climate science is simply the flavor of the month for our modern Fascist.

...temperatures would be “above normal from November through January across much of the lower 48 states.” ...New Jersey's version of the redneck is the "piney", people who live in the Pine Barrens section of the state and even laugh at themselves as being sort of back-woodsy and unsophisticated - had a guy doing some work around my house last fall who told me he was trying to get all the jobs he had lined up done as quickly as possible because "we pineys think it's going to be a long, cold winter" - "sure" I thought, since I had just heard the Philly TV forecasters saying we'd have below average snowfall and average temps - so much for high-tech weather forecasting.....

Thanks gleeaikin. The Old Farmers Almanac weather prognosticator was consulted for the best date for the D-Day landings in Normandy.
