On October 14th at 12PM EDT, Shawn Hackett of Hackett Financial Advisors will be joining Real Vision editor, Max Wiethe, to review his thesis for how changing weather patterns due to solar cycles will drive the prices of soft commodities higher over the coming years. Hackett will also be answering viewers' questions live on weather changes and soft commodities. To revisit his thesis, see his Expert View released this past February ( as well as his latest report published this past Monday, October 12th (

    Finally a person and guest who is talking REAL SCIENCE about "climate change". The increasingly strident calls from the "enviro-communist" movement are all about very selective stats and incredibly biased selective scientific conclusions which, in the end, only lead to a massive transfer of wealth from those who make it in the service and creation of the economy to a cabal of takers who allocate that wealth for their own ends...all in the name of "saving the planet" while they live in their 5000 square foot mansion with that full three car garage. Bottom line, it is the sun which heats both the planet and the earth's oceans -solar heat both heats and cools it...thus increasing or decreasing the release of CO2 and the planets temperature. By the way, this is a carbon based planet and our trees and greenery need CO2 to grow and thrive. This is the cycle, not the misguided garbage that Greta Thunberg would have you believe. In the 1970's it was "The world will run out of oil and food"....didn't happen, we found more oil and produce food better and in greater quantity than before, then in the 1980's it was going to be "Iceage" by 2000 then "Water World" when the glaciers all melt" then, when that didn't happen they settled on the truism of "Climate Change". Preparing for weather and Earth cycles are vital towards our understanding of future events based on real science, not dogma. For the record, I do consider myself an environmentalist who wants to balance the preservation of the Earth's flora and fauna with considered economic growth and progress. Henry Pleau

    I'm late to the party, so perhaps Max and Shawn will not see this comment. Well-done interview about a subject not typically discussed on RV. I look forward to reviewing the transcript and reading the report. Thank you.

    Maybe I missed this, but did Shawn offer a forecast for whether this winter (2021) will be especially cold?

      No not this winter. This winter will start late in mid December and be short ending by mid February. So a short but cold winter. Early start to the spring with hot dry conditions. The big winter event will the winter of 21/22.

    What about Australia farm land?
    • SH
      Shawn H. | Contributor
      15 October 2020 @ 12:25
      Yes we indicated in the interview that Australian farmland looks like a very attractive place to be in the decade to come.

    Great Interview, Thanks a lot guys. I was wondering is there a play for fertiliser equities here? Do fertilisers have a place in the future of indoor farming?

    Can you recommend a book for extra reading from a historical perspective, in addition to the reports? Extrapolation of previous trends would be an interesting approach here, given the cyclical nature of your claims.

    Really enjoyed this interview. Weather is highly underrated in my opinion. The typical believer that there is only global warming can be very detrimental to investors. I think this also shows why so many very big and bright investors are invested in the massive 60 acre glass greenhouse in Ky experiment. It is the Amazon of indoor crop production. This has massive implications for the efficient production in the future. The LED has now made it possible to grow mostly fruits and veggies 24 hrs a day in close proximity to the majority of the US population.

      Completely agree that indoor farming,vertical farming hydroponics all of that sort of thing of bringing the growing of our food indoors 24 seven with dramatic increase in yields and ability to deliver locally is a huge investment opportunity going forward unfortunately right now all these companies are privately owned and in the hands of venture capitalists but before too long I do believe will see a slew of publicly traded companies in the space of indoor farming and could be one of the great investment thesis concepts for the next decade. outstanding insight on your part and thank you for bringing that up it’s something we were not able to go over in the interview.

    I have to say that judged on the ratio of end-of-video satisfaction/pre-video interest is the highest I can remember. I also love Shawn's substantive answers to questions and his gentlemanly attitude toward skepticism (from both Max and the questioners).

    I am not suggesting this guy is completely wrong, just wholly unqualified to make such profound predictions. Are there any mainstream Physicists that agree with this? I put this material in the same category as Robert Prechter's work.

      There are literally 1000's of peer reviewed papers by Phd. high end scientists that have supported this concept. If you were to do a search on this subject matter you would pull 100's right away. I would be glad to send some your way that we have found to be most interesting if you would like. We have been researching this area for 3 decades and have accumulated a large arrive of information. Thank you for sharing and thank you for keeping the scientific process going.

      "There are literally 1000's of peer reviewed papers by Phd. high end scientists that have supported this concept." Why don't you give any citation of these papers in your report which apparently builds on other's research? That would indeed be part of the scientific process. In fact you're reproducing numerous charts and news articles without any reference to the source. And what is a high end scientist?

      A high end scientist is someone who not only has the credentials to be an expert in the field but has also gained the respect of their peers by producing quality peer reviewed research. It is common knowledge that Most sunspot data comes from NASA And is not a trade secret but common knowledge for everyone to use and share. Most of the charts in the report we created as an amalgamation of our findings into our climate cycle algorithm that we have been using to Make our weather forecasts that is synthesized into our price forecasting process for Ag markets. Meaning we have taken this body of historical work and created a working live weather model and applied it to Ag price forecasting. I hope this helps and thank you for reaching out to me.

    Max/Shawn, really fantastic interview. Lots to think about and mull over regarding ways to play this (if things roll out as Shawn predicts). Actionable advise of stocks to play too (LND and LAND look very interesting). Max, I know RV has some good contacts in Australia, do you think you could hook us up with an interview with someone from down under to discuss Australian farmland (as Shawn felt that was a good play too but didn't know the area well enough to make any recommendations for that idea). Again, great interview and please have Shawn back on in 3 to 6 months to follow up with how things are (or are not) following his playbook.

    So who do you believe, The Fed or Jeff Snider? Who do you believe, IPCC or Shawn Hackett? Inspired by his previous video (thanks for reposting Max), I began researching this for myself. I can recommend this book as a good starting point,if anybody is interested: It's an interesting read even if you're not interested in cycles, he was an economist who was an eye witness to the 28/29 crash. Anyway, if I can establish some correlations, I'll post a report in the Exchange.

    Excellent presentation. It is important to remember Mr. Hackett is forecasting the next several years by looking at long, short, and intermediate cycles. Mr. Hackett has so much information. He is trying to prioritize the information for a short-term weather forecast all over the world. Mr. Wiethe did an excellent job in pulling the actionable information out for investors. I would suggest looking at specific predictions from both interviews and discuss them with Mr. Hackett in the next interview. The purpose would be to learn what went right, what went wrong and hopefully why. Mr. Hackett is doing his best in a most difficult, but necessary job. We look at this information from a market point of view. Since I was lucky enough to spend a couple of months on farms in the summer as a child, there is no more important topics than the weather and the price of crops to any farmer. I remember my uncle looking at neighbor farms and saying it is raining on his farm and not a drop on mine. Because the farm community was tight, my uncle was happy the neighbor had rain. The neighbor hoped that next time my uncles' farm would get rain also. It was a time when people cared about each other. DLS
