Piers Corbyn says: "The BBC is now a TOTALLY IMBALANCED 24/7 propaganda machine for CO2 FakeScience.
Their lies are now at Goebbelesque levels of brainwashing. Without them and Sir David Attenborough of #WalrusGate ExtinctionRebellion would have tiny effect.
"Those of us who can see through the Climate lies have a DUTY to get the truth out & DEMAND fair say on BBC / MSM.
SO please support #Scientists4Truth and GIVE to the cause.
ExtinctionRebellion has huge corporate backing from the UN-deep shadow-State, #BigOil and 5G oligarchs, we have none.
WeatherAction prospects for Australia-NewZealand AND WORLD-WIDE LongRange forecasts now REAL
The two severe Tropical Cyclones Veronica and Trevor which hit N & NW Australia March 22-23rd both formed in WeatherAction TopRed R5 period Mar17-20+-1d.
"This is excellent News" said Piers Corbyn, "This confirms yet again the power of our R5 and R4 predictable periods of major sun (Solar-Wind) - Earth weather effects which ALWAYS ramp-up storms and cyclogenesis. Indeed ALL major Tropical storms/Cyclones Form/PowerUp in our R5 or R4 periods (No major storm yet checked - which is all of them which got our attention - breaks this, my first Rule of storms).
"Furthermore this success confirms ideas we are developing for Australia-NewZealand forecasts WHICH ALSO APPEAR APPLICABLE TO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, including parts where we have not got as much past data as for Br+Ir, Europe and Usa.
CO2 levels are Effect NOT Cause of Climate Changes

#Scientists4Truth counterprotests against #ExtinctionRebellion brainwashed ClimateCult -
The Good Friday WaterlooBridge #Scientists4Truth counter-protests were reported in The DailyMail and Daily Express on Easter Saturday. The comments and Like/Dislikes on them were overwhelmingly supportive of Piers' scientific position and strongly against Extinction-Rebellion (#XR).
Easter Monday: Scientists4Truth banners, leaflets and loudspeaker speeches got a lot of interest from people going to GretaThunberg-Guardian event in Friends Meeting House Euston.
We later handed in a letter to BBC demanding scientific evidence for the #CO2 story and gave out leaflets at MarbleArch.
Piers says: "Many #XR protesters were totally ignorant of BBC and EU-UN orchestration of protest they had got involved in, nevertheless we still gave out lots leaflets and had some good discussions.
"There is no such thing as man-made #ClimateChange.
"If the protesters wanted to do anything useful they should protest AGAINST wind farms which kill birds, bats and (eg in Germany) kill thousands of tons of pollinating insects annually. This limits crop growth and endangers rare birds and bats.

We had a -4/5 frost this morning with huge cascades of leaves falling over a very short period. Went shopping in Aviemore and the bus ride up was through a gloriously boreal autumn landscape with snow above 700 metres in the Cairngorms. Oddly both GFS and the Norwegian forecast are in a fair bit of agreement over a fairly substantial outbreak of Polar Maritime air from Thursday through to Halloween, so should be more frost and snow on the hills. Still suspect a volte face from GFS in short course.

We have had more rain some sunnier dry intervals to plant spring bulbs followed by a dry weekend and our first visable frost last night looking pretty across the garden early this morning with a band of mist/fog. Possibly -1 overnight but 2 deg by 8 a.m 6 deg and sunny with blue sky approaching midday, beautiful Autumn day. 5 deg in the tunnel at 9.30 a.m and glad I covered a few things with fleece, the cucumbers though have had their final moment for the year as I believe last night may have finished them off.

More heavy showers late in the night and in early afternoon means October rainfall for NW London now stands at 110mm, nearly 50% above monthly average. Very early cold snap in Canada and northern mid West means major losses of strategic agricultural crops: it has happened before, but this is absolutely contrary to the ER nonsense about climate heating. Roger Harrabin should be similarly highlighting as a wilfully lying parasite being paid for by taxpayers.

Tony, there have been plenty of extremes in Russia this year going under-reported in the West. Very cold spells in summer and a very cold snap end September/early October. It is hard to judge the reality of how extreme weather balances out when western reporting is so biased toward western locations. Typhoon Hagibis being so strong and so late does suggest plenty of oceanic heat remaining in the tropics though. There have already been two significant snow events in the European mountains this autumn, and still six weeks to go before the average date for lasting snow at 12-1500m altitude. There is currently more snow than normal in Scandinavia, SE Siberia, western China and western Canada.
On 15 Oct 2019, Rhys Jaggar wrote:
Paddy, agree with you about lettuce normally not standing winter frosts. I am growing a strain called Valdor this autumn and it is yielding very well after bulking up in the rains of the past three weeks. They market it as one to keep over winter and harvest in early spring, but I will harvest the majority before end November and just keep two or three to see how hardy they are. Grenoble Red did survive a winter here, but it was not a cold snowy one. As leaves from March sown lettuce rarely harvest before May 15th here, an overwintering strain has definite value if six weeks of harvesting prior to spring crops were possible.

Regarding sugarloaf, my aunt used to soak it in water with a bit of milk before eating, takes the bitterness out but is more work, can be delicious with the right dressing but isn’t a patch on witloof.

But corn salad is starting and shortly I’ll be digging the first witloof chicory roots for forcing in a dark box, so great to have that all winter, we always grow masses of it; stopped sugarloaf for being too bitter, scarole & endive can’t stand much frost, overwinter lettuce in tunnel.

Maria, I have never gardened in Ireland but here in NW London you can harvest fennel in October and November, turnips in November, Spanish Round winter radish in December and January, chicory and endive in November, spinach in October and November and this year I think my lettuce will last well into November as it is marketed as a winter lettuce. That is excluding all the traditional winter veg like parsnip, leek, cabbage, sprout, swede etc. All those highlighted things are sown after the solstice and some up to early September. Many go in the ground ideally after the first lettuce for leaf picking go to seed in the last ten days of July and the second early potatoes are just finished at the start of August.

Cold start today but by 8am any ice on the windscreen had melted. Football called off due to a wet pitch I would think as there is a lot of water visible in the fields. The ground has gone from being very dry to wet quite quickly. An interesting period in the forecast coming up. Lots of earliest snow, heaviest snow, cold records being set in places. Without stating how long records have existed, a statement that something is '..since records began' is a bit meaningless. But you would expect it if you believe that there is a strong 200 year cycle and there are hardly any records that long.

At a time when absolutely ludicrous suggestions of Greta Thunberg getting a Nobel prize are being bandied around, it is nice to hear of someone more worthy actually getting one. Sir Peter Ratcliffe, whose research group were two labs down the corridor from the one I worked in in Oxford 25 years ago, has been rewarded for his seminal research into oxygen sensing mechanisms and how organisms respond to hypoxia, whose presence is found in many diseases including cancer, ischemia and kidney diseases amongst others, thus rendering the topic suitable for Nobel consideration. Top, top man and you could not meet a nicer bloke.

Two years similar data tells me that bedwetting climate alarmists need to be told to grow root crops if their disaster starts occurring: carrots, parsnips, late beetroot all do fine through long, hot, dry summers to provide plenty of nutritious food from October onwards.

Paddy - the comfrey is used to accelerate compost in spring and autumn; chop n drop to feed potatoes and tomatoes in summer (also helps retain moisture); I make two batches of comfrey tea (not in water, just weighing down leaves until concentrate leaches out), used to feed pole beans, potted tomatoes, prize carrots etc. The compost accelerating is probably the most valuable. This years growth has been by far the best the past seven years - more warmth, more sun, but heavy rain often enough. Also leaving a couple of large leaves intact when cutting, so significant photosynthesis is never eliminated. I may do a sixth cut late September if October looks like growth will continue to provide surface mulch when frosts kill them off for the winter.

Will we get the truth about the big power failure? Doubtful as the evidence points to wind generation being the cause. Javid was visiting National Grid at the time and you wonder if they were trying to get wind power up to 50% to make a point. That they unwittingly made a point about unreliable generation is amusing. The German RWE gas power plant is a red herring as it shut down because it was required to do so under its contract. So that leaves Danish Hornsea wind farm as the culprit. Proper generators have rotating mass that can hold the grid together by providing frequency stabilisation. When the frequency dropped the shutdowns began to protect the grid. There was then a mad rush to increase supply. The Dinorwig hydro plant kicked into action, the gas plant was brought back online and the diesel powered STOR fired up too. This was a warning that I expect will go unheeded. We need something worse.

Its not been too bad as the dew points here have not stayed high, currently 14C. Thank heavens it'll be gone, though out worth a bang. Already Liverpool getting hammered with Hail and a may cell started between LeHavre and Rouen headed for Ken. More on the way as the eve progresses. Reflecting on the comments regarding nite temps started by Rhys I would suggest checking dew points. Here it has been blessed with quite a few cool nites as reflected in DPs below 10C through mid Jul as low as 7C. Refreshing in breeze and shade but when the sun has come out it feels hot fast even with a temp of only 21-23C. Expected this time of year. It takes constant cloud cover to subdue temps properly.

Paul, Craig, Paddy, No doubt rising food prices in Syria might have been an important backdrop to the civil war that kicked off there in 2011. But the military insurgency was fomented by the US, Saudi Arabia and Qatar who armed and funded various headchopping factions. It was a deliberate response to Assad's refusal to allow a gas pipeline from Qatar to the Mediterranean to pass through Syria. The attempted regime change was nothing to do with democracy. It was all about selling LNG to Europe. Thank God the Russians stepped in to help, otherwise all the religious minorities in Syria (including Christians) would have been exterminated.

In this paper we will prove that GCM-models used in IPCC report AR5 fail to calculate the influences of the low cloud cover changes on the global temperature. That is why those models give a very small natural temperature change leaving a very large change for the contribution of the green house gases in the observed temperature. This is the reason why IPCC has to use a very large sensitivity to compensate a too small natural component. Further they have to leave out the strong negative feedback due to the clouds in order to magnify the sensitivity. In addition, this paper proves that the changes in the low cloud cover fraction practically control the global temperature. https://arxiv.org/pdf/1907.00165.pdf

What actually ignited the flames and whether the drought was due to man made climate change as lazily claimed in many quarters is another matter. The maunder level minimum forecast from 2020-2055 and the effect of that on food prices will be far more severe.

6˚C overnight, 12˚ at 7.30, a mostly cloudy day with few sunny intervals, very light NW’ly breeze so we had an occasional muggy spell, max temp 20˚, down to 15˚ by 10.30pm, lots of rain forecast for tomorrow. Luckily, our neighbour got his hay baled tonight; veg growing reasonably well though all depends now on reasonable warmth and light for the rest of the summer, as soon enough we will notice the nights coming in earlier.

Meanwhile Zharkova et al have published a scientic paper warning of several centuries of solar caused warming, of 0.5-1C per century. However before warmists get too excited it dosent start until 2055. From 2020-2055 a grand 'Maunder' minimum awaits which we seem to be seeing the first autumn breezes of. No doubt warmists will try and blame C02 but as the cold and food shortages kick in they will become discredited long before its over in 2055. https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2019/06/25/zharkova-uses-solar-planetary-theory-in-new-paper-predicting-earth-temperature-rise-to-2600-following-imminent-grand-solar-minimum/

Agreed Paddy, the margin for error just goes. I think we will come to be very grateful for plastic ie polytunnels in the next few years. 6.5 At 04.34 at local amateur station at Clifton. When I got up at 6AM there was a nasty cold blast from the north coming through the kitchen window which I had ieft open. More like late September tban July. And it seems this is just the beginning. Food growing is going to take a lot of skill. Wonder how the west (and rest) will cope with high food prices and shortages. 1/2

How we will cope with this on a bigger scale remains to be seen.

Paul there have certainly been a few dry springs the past seven years or so in NW London, but you could have said the same in the mid 1980s with a few roasting hot summers back to back. There is currently plenty margin of safety on crops like potatoes, carrots, beetroot, leeks, parsnip, onion etc. Imagine a 2C cooling in the SE and we could still grow what Scotland grows, even if squash, tomatoes, French climbing beans might have to be sacrificed. The real challenge is optimising soil to ensure optimal water retention and plant growth. That is climate-independent....

GERRY: Aye, interesting about the recent volcanic activity (also reported in Iceagenow) and predicted by Piers for some time ahead. Also note your comments on the snowpack situation, which is all the more interesting in respect of the reports in the Norwegian Weather Service site ( a warmist one at that) of the long cold period in the Nordic countries this summer, including fresh snowfalls.

Hi Paul. Yes indeed this will become an increasingly desperate situation. A friend of mine on Twitter is an avid follower of Piers and does his own research based on solar and oceanic activity.

I'm sure your brother can confirm this Piers, but vegetable growing has got harder in the last few years. Since ~2010 summer rain has become more irregular, with a trend towards periods of feast and famine rather than steady/regular. The main factor though is chillier weather in evenings, nights and mornings in late spring and early autumn squeezing the season at both ends. If this is going to get worse in a minimum, I can see real problems with food shortages and real skill is going to be needed to get crops to harvest.

It was found when the greenies were wetting themselves that the UK had been coal-free for 2 whole weeks that the truth was somewhat different. Most people think of France when it comes to the power interconnector but there is also one to the Netherlands. During this magical 2 weeks this interconnector was in full flow. Sitting at the end of it is.......a coal-fired power station. In the crazy world that is now the UK, it is cheaper to import coal power than it is to use our own remaining stations. Much cooler today so far. Hit 84F just after 1pm yesterday with the thermometer in the shade. Went up to 90F later. The legacy media are ignoring all the snowpack, snowfall and cold going on around the world. Four volcanoes have now fired off in a number of days so welcome to solar minimum.

Nice to hear a little thunder yesterday and see a flash or 2 of lightning but although we were on an Orange thunderstorm warning it was only really a few hours with the rumbling mostly in the distance on n off and a few thunder style rain showers so we didnt get the brunt of it here. Friday also was not as hot as predicted and remained mostly cloudy and humid all day with a few sneak peaks of sunshine. Yesterday though ended up being warmer than Friday and although only showing 24 deg there were some intense bursts of sunshine & heat, the tunnel doors had both been open all day and by afternoon it was hard to keep cooler than 35 deg, must get a shade net sorted. Cooler last night as a light breeze present. After a sunny ish start cloudy and 16 deg now at 10 a.m looks like showers possible.

Either way, we need to widen our focus, look at the big picture and stop seeing these issues as seperate from the other issues around us because it is all tied in together. When we rely on trade to ensure peace (protection racket comes to mind) then mother earth becomes a resource, and corporations are required to make goods to trade with. The moral focus is on peace. This then becomes the justification for all other actions. Use less resources in the product and call it sustainable. Co2 friendly too. When your flimsy product breaks down in three years time, we can sell you another one. We will stop using coal and clean the air and look like we are against raping the planet of her resources. We will use nuclear power as it is considered clean. No one will question us about the uranium it uses, being taken from the Australian outback, polluting the water, soil etc. It's handy cos it's killing off the Aboriginals too, that know how we should be living and the consequence of our actions

As an environmentalist, I smell a very big rat and it's not coming from the "deniers" camp. The focus on Co2, appears to be a wolf in sheep's clothing. It keeps our focus off the real issue, which is to work in balance, harmony and respect with nature/ mother earth. This is where our power and servival really lay. This would necessitate us to be less consumer driven and would require goods to be made to a high quality and last much longer, ensuring we move away from being a throw away society. Our focus would be on mother earth. The Co2 green agenda that we are currently pursuing is based primarily on our own servival with enough faux ecological solutions in there to make it look like we are helping the planet and all her beings. This is why it is working to get so many people to beg for a blank cheque, to deal with Co2, at any cost. Unfortunately, from what I can see, it will cost us the very earth that many want to save. We need to widen our focus/ debate. Look much deeper.

Cont. Many of these green solutions and policies are extremely damaging to the environment and the wildlife, including us! The focus on Co2, if anything, detracts from the environment. This whole green fiasco for profit, is probably doing more damage to the environment than not doing anything at all. It just keeps the profit wheels turning, replacing working products, with environmentally friendly (not) ones that lower Co2 just keep using more resources, create more junk, use more power to create. All under the disguise of being the right thing to do. This is not working with nature but against it. I just wish people would wake up to this. We are all in this together and we will all feel the brunt of the ridiculous policies that are being pushed on us. We really do need people from all sides of the debate to get together and have a mature discussion and I wish environmentalist would see that this is what Piers is trying to do.

Occasional subscriber, in snow season. Hi Piers, I just want to say a huge big thank you for all the wonderful work you do. I am an avid green environmentalist and spent years doing environmental workshops with young people, teaching about global warming and promoting agenda 21. However, I like to look at an issue from all angles, to see the bigger picture from a (hopefully) more balanced perspective. As a result of lurking on your site for many years, I realized that "non believers" were not fascists, ignorant, uncaring, self servers, but we're intelligent, free thinking, educated, caring people, with the credible facts to back up their logic. I no longer believe the Co2 myth. "I have seen the light" Haha. I care deeply about our planet and all her creatures. I agree with the native American Indians and other indigenous peoples perspective, that humans are the guardians of our planet and her wildlife because if we aren't, we end up in the mess we are in now.
