Key Con Fuels
Climate Impact Company has been a very good investment for us we use it on a continual basis. Very informative!
Dan Basse, President
AgResource has found Climate Impact's weather research as invaluable in determining World and US weather trends. Climate Impact has been able to identify potential weather hotspots weeks - and sometimes months in advance by their climate analysis. This has helped our firm to adjust our research to weather anomalies well ahead of our completion in making US and world crop and yield adjustments. Operational forecasts get the weather close to right for the next 10 days, Climate Impact Company allows us to decide if those trends will persist. I highly recommend Climate Impact Company to get the cutting edge long range climate analysis and assessments.

For the last decade, Climate Impact Company has been an integral part of our weather risk management team at Dominion Resources. Scott's keen insight into how tropical connections, soil moisture, and other climate signals impact medium and extended range forecasts keeps the CIC forecasts pointed in the right direction. This has allowed Dominion to remain a step ahead of the market as we manage our fuel supplies and gas transportation as we serve both internal and external customers.

I recently transitioned jobs in the energy industry and quickly discovered that one tool that I missed was access to Scott Yuknis and his forecasts offered through Climate Impact Company. Scott offers an in-depth look at what is happening today as well as a detailed synopsis of what he views as the volatile weather triggers that we should watch for in the coming next few weeks.
