The Challenge Of The Weatherman

"So often people make the observation that we can't tell what the weather is going to be tomorrow so how can you possibly say anything about what the weather is going to be like in three months. Well obviously you can't.  Seasons change.  So it's not a question of having a rainy day today and a sunny day tomorrow.  It's the broader shift.  You can't predict the breaking of each wave on the seashore.  You can't predict the tides. You see what I mean.  This is looking more broadly at changes.  When you refocus your field of vision, not on the breaking events today and tomorrow, but on a longer term field of view, these changes become pretty clear."
Neil Howe, Author, "The Fourth Turning" (Interview with Jim Puplava)
