Fox News in the United States has had an interesting televised interview with a British scientist by name of Piers Corbyn. According to Wikipedia, Piers Richard Corbyn (born 10 March 1947) is a meteorologist, astrophysicist, consultant, and owner of the business Weather Action which makes weather forecasts up to a year in advance, and which he also bets on.
What makes the Fox interview so interesting is that apparently the U.K. government weather forecasting office predicted this winter would be mild. Mr. Corbyn said the opposite and seems to have been "spot on" in his reading of the tea leaves. Who is this guy and what exactly is his technique of looking into the future?
According is his web site Weather Action:
WeatherAction long-range forecasts are produced using Piers Corbyn’s Solar Lunar Action Technique (which now supersedes his Solar Weather Technique) which is the most advanced and reliable long-range forecasting system in the world.
The technique uses predictable aspects of solar activity – particle and magnetic effects from the Sun – and lunar modulations as the basis for forecasting weather many months and even years in advance. The essence of the technique is explained in scientific presentations (see News Archive).
In contrast to his emphasis on the sun as a contributor to the weather we have or suffer through on Earth, the BBC reports that the sun is not influencing our weather patterns.
A new scientific study concludes that changes in the Sun’s output cannot be causing modern-day climate change. It shows that for the last 20 years, the Sun’s output has declined, yet temperatures on Earth have risen. It also shows that modern temperatures are not determined by the Sun’s effect on cosmic rays, as has been claimed. Writing in the Royal Society’s journal Proceedings A, the researchers say cosmic rays may have affected climate in the past, but not the present.
Who’s right? The proof is in the pudding as the old saying goes and at the moment, Mr. Corbyn is closer to batting a thousand than any of his mainstream counterparts. Whether it’s hot or cold – Weather is hot or cold? – has always been difficult to predict but for the moment, we all now have an alternative source of weather expertise upon which we can decide to dress lightly or put on a winter scarf to protect ourselves against this "mild winter".
Fox TV Interview: Mocked Meteorologist Gets Last Laugh
Piers Corbyn talks not just about weather predictions but global warming. He’s saying we have just reached a peak in rising temperatures and says temperatures will be dropping over the next 25 years and goes so far as to say that we will have a mini-ice age by 2035. Oddly enough, he claims temperatures drive carbon dioxide levels not the other way around. So all of our cars are not contributing to the supposed rise in CO2?
