- Another impressive video : Piers Corbyn. When I checked that Youtube channel for that conference in Berlin Nov 2011 I saw that I saw that Piers Corbyn had also lectured. I'd always thought him a bit of a crank, but he spoke impressively. He is well known for long range weather forecasting consistantly getting better results than the UK Met Office. He has always insisted that the variation in sun patterns are crucial, which is something until recently the Met Office has insisted doesn't effect climate. He reckons he can predict big weather events, earthquakes & volcano eruptions from the extra energy shot into the weather system by solar flares. He seems to have predicted the Japan Earthquake & recent Mexico Earthquake. (bear in mind unreported earthquakes occur almost every day).
- I have no much idea what the true effect of extra manmade CO2 is : Most skeptics say IPCC has got it's forcing the wrong way around & say instead of positive feedbacks in the climate system multiplying the effect fourfold, the feedbacks are negative & actually diminish the effect say quartering it. Yet Corbyn takes an even more extreme view insisting "It's all a load of nonsense : Science show CO2 today doesn't effect the climate for 800 years. Climate works on long term cycles mostly dependent on the sun"
Wow he said "The CO2 driver theory of weather and climate is delusional nonsense propagated by a self-serving failed sect. Their ‘theory’ fails to explain past weather and climate; all its predictions over the last ten years have failed and it cannot and never will predict anything."
- For Corbyn to be right there has to be general cooling to the minimum in 2035
- guess it's worth digging up his record
