Can A Better Weather Forecast Produce More Power?

What’s the greatest invention of all time? Some will say fire, but I’ll disagree (we learned to harness fire; we didn’t create it). Others will say the wheel and it’s tough to disagree with that. Some will say the Bottoms Up Draft Beer Dispensing System (when I searched for ‘Greatest invention of all time,’ that’s what turned up at the top of the list). However, if you ask the National Academy of Engineering to limit that question to the 20th Century, their answer is electrification, followed by the automobile, then the airplane, then water supply and distribution. Electrification — would you agree?
