Sunspots, scientists and I told you so…

Piers Corbyn is enjoying an “I told you so” moment after the UK astrophysicist-meteorologist predicted a cold, snowy winter, in direct contradiction to the official UK government’s prediction.

Corbyn also predicts, that since we have solidly moved into a cooling trend, we’ll have another 25 years of cold weather, all simply part of a natural cycle ruled by the sun’s activity.

Corbyn, who looks a bit like Einstein reincarnated, is outspoken, calling the “climate change” campaign “complete nonsense.”

“It’s fiction,” he says. “It comes from a cult ideology. There’s no science in there, no facts to back them up.”

“They fiddle the facts in order to justify political attacks, carbon trading, extra taxation on the public,” said Corbyn. “It is a nonsense and has to be stopped.”

You can follow Corbyn’s climate predictions at

and on twitter.

So, I’ll go out on a limb and predict that those selling natural fiber-based cold weather clothing will do very well in upcoming years — and that real estate prices in Southern California will rise as the snowbirds fly to warmer regions!

In the meantime, dress warmly. It’s cold outside!

NOTE: Watch this interesting debate on the issue and this presentation by Dr. David Bellamy is worth watching.

And this presentation has some great charts, especially numbers 51 and 66.

And this Q&A by scientist Tim Ball is VERY useful. If you like this, here are more articles by Dr. Ball.

Here’s a selection of some great quotes from recent articles on the subject:

I’m a little depressed about Cancun. The problem is not going away, it’s getting steadily worse. –Al Gore, Reuters, 25 November 2010

Global action is not going to stop climate change. The world needs to look harder at how to live with it. –The Economist, 26 November 2010

The government’s chief scientist has dismissed hopes for a deal at this week’s United Nations climate change conference — and said Britain should start preparing for a warmer world. –Jonathan Leake, The Sunday Times, 28 November 2010

Mercifully, nobody will pay attention to the climate conference at Cancun next week, where a much-reduced group of delegates will go through the motions. The delusional dream of global action to combat climate change is dead. –Margaret Wente, The Globe and Mail, 27 November 2010

One benefit of meeting in Mexico is that the climate conference will avoid the embarrassment last year when the Copenhagen meeting ended in an unexpected blizzard. It’s harder to sell global warming to world leaders who have to flee the city before their flights are grounded by an ice storm. The worst the Cancun conferees will have to deal with is the threat of being kidnapped by heavily armed gangs of drug dealers. – The Washington Times, 29 November 2010

Snow is starting to disappear from our lives. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said. –The Independent, 20 March 2000

Britain is shivering in record-breaking cold weather for November despite data from the Met Office that we could be in for an unusually dry and mild winter. –The Daily Telegraph, 29 November 2010
