According to Ken Ring, the climate today is the same as 100 years ago.Â He believes it is the ârecord-breaking industryâ making us think something frighteningly strange is happening in the world of nature, completely independent from the world of business.
Instead we are fed a media frenzy of records broken in national temperatures, rainfall amounts, hurricanes or droughts.Â We are told we have never been this warm before or as cold. This or that is âworst everâ, ‘worst since records beganâ or âworst in living memoryâ. Climate change comes from accounts of temperature records being smashed.
Ken predicted the tragic February 2011 earthquake in Christchurch which claimed 185 lives, six months before it happened. Many had chosen to leave town on the named day and were grateful for the warning. Although his predictions upset both geologists and politicians, it also won him widespread interest and support for the theory that the moon controls both weather and earthquakes.
Ken Ring, from Auckland, New Zealand is a former mathematics teacher who, while living an outdoor life with his family in the 1970s, âstumbled overâ a long range weather forecasting system using ancient principles in astrology. In 1999 he published the first of his annual Weather Almanacs and in 2002 he established Predict Weather Limited which now supplies farmers with data more meaningful than a day-before forecasting system. The Australian almanacs began in 2007; the Ireland version in 2010.
Ken is still the only published long range forecaster in these three countries and presents at conferences throughout Australia and NZ. He has weekly and monthly spots on a number of regional radio stations in NZ, Australia and Ireland, as well as being a regular face on Australiaâs Channelâs Nine and Seven. He also has monthly columns in magazines and regional newspapers. The almanacs have a strong following amongst the many whose business or leisure activities are affected by the weather.
