    Absolutely fascinating. I wonder if RVTV could interview Mr Garriss again every 6-12 months, with a brief outlook / update on different sectors and continents etc just like he did in this interview.

    Having known and talked to his grandfather back in the early 1980s there are many other catalysts that can effect the economy that his grandfather studied and used for prediction. Some of those included planet and moon alignment, earthquakes, sunspots, ocean tides and many others. He was a very fascinating man to hear.

    RE: Gerald G. Most agree that the earth has been getting warmer at a fairly constant rate for 300 years. Science asks if it correlated to human emitted CO2. Appreciable increases in CO2 didn’t occur until mid-20th century yet rapid glacial melt commenced in the mid-1700’s. Example: Glacier Bay melted back 40 miles from 1770 to 1879. As it continues to melt today (+20 miles) the petrified stumps from the last two interglacial forests are being exposed. Clearly the earth is still advancing to the height of this interglacial period and warming correlations to human CO2 appear to be very weak.

    Fascinating from an investing perspective but obviously (as pointed out) more for the hedge value than speculation. Very informative.
    But what a talker - only thing missing was the vacuum cleaner!

    Everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it....
    Interesting but not helpful. More smoke and mirrors.

    Are they looking into using machine learning? Machine learning is great for teasing out patterns in massive data sets.

    Is this guy an American? To make the assertion that there is good science behind both the arguments for and against climate change is a flat out lie. There is certainly a debate but it most certainly ISN'T scientific. On one side there are the scientists who argue that climate change is a reality and, on the other side, there are the lobby groups who's immediate interests are being threatened and argue against it. Then there is the average North American idiot who'd prefer not to think about the consequences of consuming (and polluting) at 10 times the rate of everyone else on the planet. Of course that guy will always CHOOSE to believe just exactly what he wants to believe which, of course, is that there is a debate and climate change has not been proven.

    This. Was. Awesome! I've never even considered weather and climate playing this big of a role in investing. He managed to stay objective on a topic that typically evokes strong emotions in people nowadays, and then uses that information to help his clients. Just the facts here, nothing else. Clearly a brilliant individual providing a indispensable service. Simply amazing.

    Interesting perspective and clearly an expert on the topic. would have been great to hear an even longer term perspective, more global heating or are we approaching the onset of an ice age (atlantic halo current failure due to melted north pole ice with subsequent northern atlantic cooling) Ha....

    Absolutely fascinating. Markets cannot affect the weather but weather can greatly affect markets. This guy may be the brightest yet on real vision.
