Piers Corbyn criticizes Prof Stephen Hawking for backing #ClimateHoax 

Piers Corbyn comment on Prof Stephen Hawking reported interview ITV Morning show 20 March with PiersMorgan – for consideration by Prof Hawking and his team.

“Prof Hawking spoke alarmist delusional nonsense on so-called (ManMade) Climate Change and as a leading world scientist failed in his duty to support evidence-based scientific principles. Science shows CO2 levels are an EFFECT NOT A CAUSE of natural changes in climate. This is spelt out in the pdf:

 “The FACT is there is no real-world evidence that CO2 levels drive temperatures but a million years of data shows the connection is the other way, namely that world sea temperatures control CO2 levels which ARE OBSERVED TO FOLLOW sea temperatures by some hundreds of years. The reason is basic Physics. The oceans which hold about 50x the CO2 of the atmosphere can hold a bit more when colder and less when warmer (just like warming a fizzy drink causes CO2 to come off). So (under Henry’s Law of gas-liquid solvent equilibrium) CO2 is driven from the sea to the air as temperatures rise – a process which happens with a delay of some hundreds of years due to slow ocean circulation. The rise in CO2 levels now are probably a delayed effect of the Medieval warm period

“The idea that CO2 is in any way driving temperatures in recent decades is also shown to be absurd by the fact that the natural cycles of temperature eg 22yrs60yrs are NOT present in CO2 which is supposedly, under the CO2 warmist theory, driving temperature changes. CO2 levels are just slowly rising without the fluctuations observed in temperature.

“It is also a FACT that the various extreme weather events in recent years are not evidence of causation by rising CO2 which is happening at the same time but actually evidence AGAINST the CO2 theory. The extremes, including temporary Arctic ice reductions at times are caused by the wild Jet stream (and associated ocean current circulations). These wild North-South variations in the Jet Stream are the opposite of the general poleward shifted Jet Stream of a generally warmed world predicted by the CO2 theory. In fact these wild JetStream patterns were predicted under my WeatherAction solar-activity – solar-wind ideas in 2008 and totally nothing to do with CO2.

“Prof Hawking and your team, please consider these points and if you have actual evidence that CO2 levels are a cause of climate changes rather than an effect then let me and the world know. If you cannot do that then cease being used by the globalization lobby to promote a delusional theory which is a key ideological pillar of de-industrialization of USA and Europe – and instead stand up for science.”

“On other points you made you must know it to be untrue that you would be unwelcome in the USA because you have criticisms of President Trump. Millions enter the USA who have different views to him. 

“It was also unhelpful of you, as a Labour voter, to sound critical of my brother when despite his forcing the govt to do many u-turns the Tory press denounce him every day beccause they fear the good he will bring to the UK as Prime Minister”.

“As a matter of common interest you and I had the same Physics teacher in different schools. Kieth Reynolds a superbly inspirational dedicated teacher first taught you then moved to my school, Adams’ Grammar school, Newport Shropshire where I learned a huge amount from him.”

Glacial Advance During The Little Ice Age

I said this about the 1540 vs 2003 megadrought and it bears repeating with glaciers as Paul shows;

“This then beggars the question how to explain carbon dioxide levels having any role at all in unprecedented events that are not unprecedented? Of course those wedded to the moronic and niave narrative can’t accept this and rattle on incoherently about the changes being ‘too fast’ resorting to the obliteration of history with defective hockeysticks and computer generated alternate realities.”

From HH Lamb’s “Climate, History and the Modern World”

We know that sea levels have risen since the late 19thC, and that much of this is due to melting of glaciers and ice sheets. However, we also know that the same glaciers were growing rapidly during the Little Ice Age, so can we say that 20thC sea level rise is anything other than a natural process?

Let’s remind ourselves of just how great and widespread this glacial advance was.

The history of glacial advance in the European Alps is well documented. Historian, Brian Fagan, offers us this horrifying account:

Poland – I need not have changed the tire for the summer

The cold spell across Europe is bring late season cold and snow as Piers Corbyn predicted;

Via Google Translate (with video);

Snowfall, strong wind and frost – so places in the country looked tonight. The difficult situation is still among others, in the province of Silesia – 70 thousand. customers were left without power.
Province. Silesian Tuesday it is struggling with heavy snowfall. In some parts of the region it has dropped even more than 20 cm. During the last day units of the State Fire Service intervened over 260 times.

In Czestochowa, on one of the settlements broken tree crushed several cars.

Cars in the snow

In turn, the cars on the road just got stuck in the snow. According to the governor crisis management center all roads and highways in the province. Silesia were passable on Wednesday morning, but at night some of them traffic was difficult or even blocked due to fallen trees or on the road barricaded by trucks that could not enter the hills.

Unnecessarily changed the tire for the summer – said one of the drivers from the area of ​​Czestochowa.

Winter is not forgiven

Those who have not yet changed the tires, can successfully put it off until at least next week. According to forecasts in the coming days we still have to reckon with snow and sleet. On Wednesday, among others, will fall in the south of the country, poor rainfall possible also in the center.

From morning white among others in Katowice, but as noted by TVN Meteo presenter Anna Dec, is “symbolic of rain”, taking into account what forecasters predict on Wednesday.

The Lower and Upper Silesia, but also in the Opole chance of snow up to 10 centimeters, it is really a lot – Anna Dec notes and adds that, in combination with strong winds may cause blowing snow.

Micky Mann’s Meandering Jetstream

His science is of about the same dubious level as his house testimony

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

One of the “scientists” who demonstrated conclusively that global warming was an unnatural event with the famous “hockey stick” graph is now warning that giant jetstreams which circle the planet are being altered by climate change.

Professor Michael Mann said extreme weather events – such as the “unprecedented” drought in California last year, the flooding in Pakistan in 2010 and the heatwave in Europe in 2003 – were happening more often than they should do, even taking the warming climate into account.

This, he said, meant there had to be an additional factor.

​Jetstreams are influenced by the difference in temperatures between the Arctic and the equator.

But the Arctic has been warming much faster than tropical climates – the island of Svalbard, for example was 6.5 degrees celsius warmer last year compared to the average between 1961 and 1990. The land has also been warming faster…

NYT Readers Face Diversity

Science Matters

Imaginary Enemies

A lot of fuss is in the media about the New York Times hiring Bret Stephens from the Washington Post. Stephens won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is regarded as a conservative, and has written critically about Trump, as well as liberals. In particular he has poked fun repeatedly at the climatism hysteria. For this latter point, the climate faithful are up in arms about the prospect of Stephens columns appearing on pages of NYT (a kind a bible for liberals and environmentalists).

For sure Bret Stephens is as outspoken as Mark Steyn, but with his own preoccupations and style. To see what might be in store for NYT readers, let’s look at some excerpts of his commentary regarding global warming/climate change. Note: Washington Post has a paywall, so links to these articles go to blogsites where the full text is available.

In 2014 Stephens published Climate…
