Tinkering Around With Nonsense Doesn’t Work

I’d not paid much attention to Piers Corbyn, other than to occasionally see decent predictions he had made. (I’d also not bothered to figure out of those were predominant or just the odd success).

Well, watching this video has been fun. The accent mixed with a tendency to mumble can make it a bit hard to follow at times (at least for my partially deaf ears) but worth it. I think I like this guy! Willing to gore all oxen, not bashful about saying what he thinks.

Per present “Climate Change” theory, he states “We’re not going to change the world by tinkering around with nonsense.”

Gotta love it!

    Piers Corbin makes a living from his forecasts and their accuracy. How many climate ‘scientists’ could do that with their output rather than with government grants?

  2. kakatoa says:


    Excellent timing for the Piers Corbyn reference/video!!! Given his rather impressive batting average, his predications of recent extreme weather events is very impressive!, I would love to hear his thoughts in regards to how CA should plan for keeping the lights on over the next decade or so. It is unlikely that he will be invited to provide any input at this upcoming meeting-

    Thank you, E.M. Smith, for promoting the reliable scientific findings of Piers Corbyn.

    As an expression of appreciation for your courage in allowing me to post factual information – unwelcome by AGW skeptics and believers alike –

    Here are nine pages of precise experimental data (pages 19-27) that falsify post-1945 Standard Models of nuclei, stars, Earth’s climate and the cosmos:

    In summary,

    FEAR that Earth’s atmosphere might be ignited accidentally in the chaos of August 1945 when:

    1. Allied atomic bombs destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki;

    2. Japan exploded an atomic bomb off the east coast of Konan, Korea;

    3. Stalin’s USSR troops captured Japan’s facility and took scientists and technicians to Russia; and

    4. A young nuclear geochemist took possession of Japan’s atomic bomb plans . . .

    FRIGHTENED world leaders into taking totalitarian control of humans by:

    5. Uniting Nations on 24 Oct 1945; and

    6. Hiding the source of energy in cores of heavy atoms, some planets, ordinary stars and galaxies; and

    SOWED the seeds of worldwide totalitarian science that surfaced in Climategate emails and documents in late November 2009!

    With precise experimental data on one side and all the world’s political power on the other, statesmanship is the only viable solution to the current stand-off: It cannot be resolved by a win-lose ending !

    Very interesting. I have noticed over the past few years that Corbyn seems to be onto something. Did not know his connection to EU theory, rather perhaps I did not know EU theory existed as Corbyn’s predictions have obvious electromagnetic basis. Thanks for posting this EM.

  8. Fred Furkenburger says:

    If I remember correctly he actually made bets about his forecasts against the British Bureau of Meteorology. He won more times than lost and in the end the bookmakers would not accept his bets any more. He claims an 80% success rate on his forecasts which, if correct, is better than any Bureau of Meteorology I know in long term forecasts. I have a sneaking suspicion that he does have a fair idea of what he is talking about!

  9. Steve C says:

    Corbyn’s a good man. I first became aware of him a fair few years ago now, when I heard that the bookmakers Ladbrokes had banned him from placing any more bets on the weather. His laptop does a lot better than the Met Office’s £33M supercomputer!

    BTW (and completely O/T here), I thought of you when I saw this story in the Telegraph: “Cat missing since Japan tsunami reunited with owners”. How’s Magic these days?

  10. Corbyn is certainly onto something as electro-magnetism becomes a serious consideration in earth’s climate and space weather.http://www.principia-scientific.org/our-electric-universe-junk-science-and-astrophysicist-piers-corbyn.html

    Climategate cannot be resolved until we let go of blame and recognize good intentions at the start of this drama in August 1945.

    I was personally “too close to the trees to see the forest,” until the 2009 Climategate emails and official responses revealed the source: 1945 CHAOS and FEAR in the closing days of WWII.

    Unpublicized CHAOS and FEAR of nuclear annihilation in 1945 initiated the chain of events that produced Climategate in 2009.

    That is the inescapable conclusion of precise experimental data** and studies by the nuclear geochemist, KAZUO KURODA, that took possession of Japan’s atomic bomb plans in 1945.

    Aston had warned on 12 Dec 1922 of the danger of transforming Earth into a star by uncontrollable release of nuclear energy [See page 20, last paragraph of Aston’s Nobel Prize Lecture]:

    These are examples of uncontrolled CHAOS in August 1945, the closing days of WWII:

    I went to college with Piers, a long time ago when Imperial College was one of the most academically selective institutions in the World (still is because engineering and hard sciences require considerable intellectual horsepower).

    So, what you see in us is a collection of Geeks, Nerds, whatever you want to claim. However, we were trained by FRSs and Nobel Prize-winners before these were almost exclusively Marxist Bureaucrats. We don’t suffer fools like Trenberth gladly.

    Here is my engineer’s take on fake IPCC Climate Science as a heat transfer problem:

    IPCC ‘science’ uses “Forcing’, net energy transfer to the surface by solar SW and atmospheric LW. Standard physics assesses this as the difference of ‘Irradiances’ from ‘Stefan-Boltzmann’ equations. The IPCC does it differently.

    The Sun is 5,500 deg.K, the Earth’s surface much cooler. Net SW surface heating = Sigma(F1.T_sun^4 – F2.T_surface^4). Sigma is the S-B constant, F1 and F2 are parameters dependent on clouds etc., Ts are temperatures. It is +160 W/m^2 (mean). This goes to the atmosphere as 97 W/m^2 convection/evapo-transpiration plus 63 W/m^2 real net IR emission, of which 40 W/m^2 goes to Space.

    Similarly, net LW surface heating is minus net LW flux to the atmosphere = Sigma(F3.T_atmosphere^4 – F4.T_surface^4). Numerically: -63W/m^2=333 W/m^2 – 396 W/m^2. Conservation of energy means: 160 W/m^2 (SW heating) -97 W/m^2 (convection) -63 W/m^2 (LW cooling) = 0 W/m^2. Near zero net surface IR in ‘self-absorbed’ GHG bands means no GHG-absorption of this energy.

    However, our Climate Alchemists assume 396 W/m^2 net surface LW flux, the ‘black body’ Irradiance for 16 deg C, when that’s the potential energy flux to a sink at Absolute Zero: only 63 W/m^2 is real. They make up the difference by assuming 333 W/m^2 atmospheric Irradiance measured by ‘pyrgeometer’ (‘back radiation’) provides extra surface heat when standard physics shows for a normal temperature gradient, this Irradiance cannot transfer any energy to the surface. The failure to understand what their main instrument outputs is a serious scientific mistake.

    Adding 97 W/m^2 convection makes 493 W/m^2, 3x real heating rate, never proved experimentally. As it’s far too high they offset 238.5 W/m^2 by falsely applying ‘Kirchhoff’s Law of Radiation’ to the semi-transparent emitter at ToA. The residual c. 60% more heating than reality is, with 3x real GHE, used to purport imaginary ‘positive feedback’. They then use c. 25% extra low level cloud albedo in hindcasting to pretend the extra energy doesn’t heat the atmosphere above reality.

    IPCC ‘science’ is nothing less than fraud, cynical manipulation of data to purport much more heating than reality. The GHG-absorbed component is exaggerated 5.1x. This scam deceived all but real heat transfer experts of which I am one.

    Love Piers Corbyn’s presentations.
    Especially his first youtubes are really great where he poses as a nutty professor showing a map in front of wobbly camera telling his story with the map up side down.
    Absolutely priceless entertainment, just like the video you published here.
    Many thanks for that, I missed it.

    Some people at WUWT, Leif, Pamela, must hate his guts just like they hate David Archibald’s predictions. Just scan the posts on Archibald’s latest WUWT contribution Dial M. for Maunder:

    It’ a real eye opener.

    And this one from WUWT: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/05/15/solar-wind-to-lightning-strike-link-discovered/

    Add to this the (proven) cloud theory from Svensmark and we’re slowly getting somewhere.

  18. omanuel says:

    @R. de Haan

    Progress has been slow because we (including Oliver) believed what we were told and did not go back to read original documents like the last paragraph of Aston’s Nobel Prize Lecture (12 Dec 1922) that struck TERROR in the hearts of world leaders and nuclear scientists in the CHAOS of August 1945, when they realized that Japan and Stalin’s USSR had access to a source of energy that might ignite our atmosphere and transform Earth into a star:

    Professor Curry has a new thread on resolving the climate debate, and allowed me to post a viable way to reconcile these two cultures and avoid violence:

    Skeptics (who won the debate) must
    offer their politically more powerful opponents an honorable escape.

    HISTORICAL events of December 1922 and August 1945 offer the honorable retreat that may bring Climategate to conclusion:

    1. The DISCOVERY was acknowledged with a Nobel Prize in December 1922.

    2. But FEAR and CHAOS were hidden from the public in August 1945.

    These two events are summarized on opposite sides of this one-page report

  20. Excellent presentation by Piers. I had heard OF him, but this is my first time hearing him speak. Fantastic stuff that I will pass on to non-skeptic members of my extended family. It was great to hear him refer to WUWT as a Lukewarmer website. It was eye opening,

    Thanks E.M.!

    Many skeptics have a skeptical view of WUWT.

    WUWT is a gossip column, with news headlines. Not much real science is discussed there. I go there for entertainment not the science. pg

    p.g. sharrow

    Anthony simply cannot imagine that the post-1945 STANDARD MODELS of nuclei, stars, galaxies and the cosmos were all designed to hide the source of energy that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

  24. omanuel says:

    Those who decided to deceive the public in 1945 had a noble goal in mind: “To save the world from the threat of nuclear annihilation.”

    They just chose the wrong means. Now that their mistake has been disclosed, skeptics and believers of AGW alike need to work together for the benefit of society.

    E.M. Smith and others on this blog may have the talents and the wisdom to help promote a peaceful end to the 69 year nightmare.

  25. omanuel says:

    I agree, Piers understands Earth’s connection to its heat source far better than any government scientist or government research agency.

    The best things we could each do for society today are to acknowledge and to forgive world governments for abuse of science to deceive the public for the last sixty-nine years (2014 – 1945 = 69 yrs), initially motivated by a noble purpose:

    “To save the world from nuclear annihilation!”

    Yes, AGW is one example of science molded to fit a political agenda. The Standard Models of nuclei, planets, stars, galaxies and the universe are other examples.

    The global climate debate cannot be resolved unless we first understand the international CHAOS and TERROR hidden from the public in August 1945 after

    a.) Hiroshima and Nagasaki were gone b.) Earth might be changed into a star
    _ 1. Japan’s atomic bomb plant
    _ 2. Captured by Stalin’s troops

    The one thing we should learn from all of history is that the earth’s surface condition is inherently stable within a range and will endevour to return to or maintain those conditions. There can not be “run away” anything. Even chain reaction atomic bombs are self limiting as they blowup or snuff out the conditions that make them work.
    No matter how out of whack political conditions get the Bureaucrats can be counted on to destroy the conditions that allowed their creation. The pendulum must swing back to balance. Push too far to the left and a swing too far to the right will result. We must endevour to dampen the swings not energize them. pg

    @ p.g. sharrow

    Do you know Eric Dollard?

    He does not have all the answers, but he appears to be a very practical solar observer:


  31. p.g.sharrow says:

    @omanual; Sorry, never met the man. Too bad you linked to a video. My connection is not up to it. On the other hand WE both know the standard model of a hydrogen sun is wrong. Not even logical, given the conditions of the rest of the solar system. Every planet and moon has a ferrous core, how could the sun not? I postulated the necessary conditions to create a hydrogen sun in a system of Iron cored planets created from the proposed of miscellaneous materials nebula. Not a very satisfying theory. The Ferrous cored sun works out well with it’s hydrogen atmosphere, an atomic furnace for the dance of neutron/hydrogen within the Ferrous crystal lattice. This is the way that the universe is powered, not some plasma caused smashing of atoms. The creation of neutrons is as important to the grand scheme as neutron decay. LENR points the way to clean atomic energy as it reduces radioactivity by passivating unstable isotopes by adding nucleons to unstable atom cores. Even the giant stars work on this principle but they nova because they are too large to “leak” the excess energy that they create and so “boil over” into nova. A dwarf such as our sun “leaks” the energy it creates like a stirred pot of stew because it’s family of planets keeps the pot stirred enough to prevent boil over. pg

  32. omanuel says:

    Thanks, p.g.sharrow. You and Eric Dollard both correctly conclude that the core of the Sun is like an atomic bomb.

    Today’s early morning conclusion on The ABC’s of Climategate:

    Click to access CHAOS_and_FEAR_August_1945.pdf

    A. On December 12, 1922 Aston gave a PROMISE and a WARNING of FRUITS of the SCIENTIfIC REVOLUTION.

    B. Immediately after Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed, CHAOS and TERROR gripped the hearts of world leaders as their TOP SECRET A-BOMB plans became common knowledge.

    C. Being human and subject to error, they tried to HIDE THEIR SIN: Selfish use of the powerful source of energy (E) stored as mass (m) in CORES of heavy atoms, some planets, ordinary stars, galaxies and the expanding cosmos!

    Climategate emails and documents publicly exposed these omissions in late November 2009.

    UNCONDITIONAL FORGIVENESS is the quickest way forward from sixty-nine years (2014 – 1945 = 69 yrs) of public deception, disguised as Standard Models of Consensus Science.
