Droughts and fires in the Amazon, Australia and Indonesia this year have scorched millions of acres of timber and farmland. Billions of animals died. This has motivated a new group of climate change advocates who are trying to make a difference in the world. They are planting millions of trees around the world. Scientists among them are developing new carbon capture techniques. Some are teaching their peers about mindfulness when discarding, or emitting carbon. Hopefully, this year’s weather disasters will spark more immediate climate action.

One region where my accuracy has been proven is in long-range weather forecast program for the Amazon of Brazil. Another was in west Africa’s cocoa areas. The dots on the map below represent zones where present teleconnections make it easiest to predict weather, months in advance.
