Farmer's Almanac: 'Catastrophic' Winter Predicted

Another nail in the AGW coffin? I think so. 80-85% accuracy is already better than all the global warming predictions combined. And it sure is cool so far...THIS SUMMER!

Farmer's Almanac Predicts Colder, 'Catastrophic' Winter

LEWISTON, Maine — People worried about the high cost of keeping warm this winter will draw little comfort from the Farmers' Almanac, which predicts below-average temperatures for most of the U.S.

"Numb's the word," says the 192-year-old publication, which claims an accuracy rate of 80 to 85 percent for its forecasts that are prepared two years in advance.

The almanac's 2009 edition, which goes on sale Tuesday, says at least two-thirds of the country can expect colder-than-average temperatures this winter, with only the Far West and Southeast in line for near-normal readings.

"This is going to be catastrophic for millions of people," said almanac editor Peter Geiger.
