According to TheClimateSurvivalist.com founder Thomas Kostigen, despite the reliability of traditional knowledge in predicting the weather, one should never consider buying into the lure. These almanacs that house these traditional knowledge claim to predict weather for the rest of 2015. However, he said that no new scientific formula or technology could predict weather further than 16 days.
Kostigen said that The Global Forecast System used by the United States National Weather Service could only produce 16 days of weather predictions. The further it goes, the less accuracy it has.
Europe’s own Integrated Forecast System or the European Model could only predict the weather as far as 10 days.
According to him, the Old Farmer’s Almanac and the Farmers’ Almanac do not rely on satellites and technology, which is already evidence of their unreliability. However, these two books, which began in 1792 and 1818 respectively, say that they have secret formulas. The Farmers’ Almanac says that it uses mathematical and astronomical formulas that take note of sunspot activities, tidal action and the position of the planets into consideration.
Kostigen said that he has nothing against the almanacs, but he has something against steering people in the wrong direction.
