Welcome to Space News from the Electric Universe brought to you by The Thunderbolts Project™ at Thunderbolts.info Among the top Space News stories of 2015 we've seen dramatic affirmations of the electromagnetic connection between the Earth and the Sun. With each new discovery, the Sun's profound influence on Earth's climate and weather becomes more self evident. However, it seems that the electrical nature of the Earth-Sun connection, and its role in so-called climate change, remains nowhere to be found in the popular climate change debate. Today, we check in on one of the leading skeptics of the theory of man-made climate change solar physicist and meteorologists Piers Corbyn. Earlier this year, Piers appeared in a documentary that aired on the BBC's Radio 4 program called, 'What's The Point of the Met Office?' After a firestorm of protest from activists the program was subsequently removed from the BBC's iPlayer playback facility.
We asked Piers what he thinks of the BBC's policies and their coverage of climate change. [Piers] You know, the BBC is totally not impartial for climate change and it propagates the climate change religion, all the time. They have a small amount of skeptics, if you like, or 'climate realists' as I would call them (at times), in order to simply claim they have balance but, in reality they don't have balance – they are totally biased. For example, when they're reporting any weather extremes around the world they repeat and 'pipe up' anything involving warmth, and they ignore things involving cold, or give them a short shrift. [Michael] We are told that the scientific consensus today is that anthropogenic global warming, or climate change, is real. However, how accurate had the climate and weather forecasts been of advocates of this theory? [Piers] The UN climate model and what the BBC sites, and the British Met office sites are the same thing and they are complete nonsense, and they have failed utterly and absolutely.
If they were economic forecasts, or forecasts from a political party of employment or something, they would be thrown out of office. Or, if they were running a business, or they were the managers of the business they'd be closed down. They said basically that world temperatures should have been rising continuously for the last 15 years. Well, they have not been. They had a prediction of very steep rises and, in fact, the temperatures did rise a bit and then, leveled off in a narrow declining – under satellite measurements. Under 'fiddled' surface data, they essentially show that they're static, but that data is 'fiddled' and then they select the statisticians to give the story they want. [Michael] Like many other skeptics of man-made climate change Piers emphasizes the importance of the Sun's influence on climate and weather. [Piers] The Sun and the Earth are connected by various channels of communication – obviously, there's gravitation and the orbit of the Earth around the Sun but, the main energy transfer is from radiation, and also particles beamed out of the Sun – charged particles.
The radiation of sunlight then, obviously, gives us general temperature of the globe. The way the globe works though, is that it's a magnetic body and the Sun is also magnetic body, and the particles coming out of the Sun are charged particles. So, they are guided by the magnetic fields connecting the Earth and the Sun. These rush of particles, called the 'solar wind' (which come at a million mph), does affect the upper atmosphere when a lot of electric currents going on very high up, and also, the middle atmosphere where the particles, in some respects, probably initiate droplet formation, or they affect the way the circulation of the upper atmosphere, that affects the way the jet stream, which is the upper air that moving around the globe, and that will affect that. And, the jet stream then essentially controls weather patterns, so the basic point we make is, that the Sun-Earth magnetic and particle connection essentially governs the behavior of the jet stream, which is the main governor of weather types and the arbiter of weather extremes. What we have is, the jet stream essentially marks the boundary between colder polar air and warmer air towards the equator.
And, under the 'global warmers' prediction, the jet stream should be further north and shorter, and generally will have warmth but, generally benign. However, what we do have instead is a longer jet stream, which is further south, and it's got a lot of waves in it – and, these are characteristic of periods of low solar activity. So, these wavy patterns mean that sometimes you can have very warm parts of the north wind, where warm air is brought from the tropics and above, more often, because it's generally further south (this jetstream), you have cold blasts coming from a long way north, going south. And that is what's giving these extreme cold spells in places, extreme warm spells in places and extreme storms where were these type of air masses meet. [Michael] We asked Piers what he thinks of the notion that human activity is causing an increase in extreme weather on Earth, such as hurricanes. [Piers] It is a complete, deliberate lie, and it is put about by these people who know it's a lie. The fact is, there's actually been less hurricanes – some of them have been very extreme, though.
But, there's been less hurricanes in the USA which is the best place in the world where they are counted. All of these extremes that have happened are driven by solar activity. As an example, one of the ones the 'warmists' quote most is the typhoon Haiyan. It caused a lot of damage, so because there was a lot of damage they said it must be CO2. Well, if you looked at what was actually happening to Haiyan, as it was approaching the Philippines, it so occurred that the Sun was in a very active short phase of solar flares and so on. And, we'd categorize these (we predict these phases) and this is called an R5 period (a red 5, red weather or dangerous weather top level 5). And, during these periods typhoons, or tropical cyclones, always get more excited.
As it so happened, Haiyan was in the right place at right time – or, if you like, the wrong place at the wrong time – for solar effects to whack it up and it got ramped up as it approached the Philippines, and cause utter devastation. And, that was predictable. Well, we've got a general prediction which we made some years ago but, because of the wild jet stream era we're in (which, of course, is also a mini ice age period in the sense that if you were at the right end of these wavy jet streams, then you're going to get very cold weather). So, we're in a mini ice age/wild jet stream era which means there will be a lot of dramatic extremes in the world, especially in America, where you can see them from one side to the other. So, it might be very warm in the southwest and cold in the Northeast, and on some occasions, the other way around.
