A few sites I've stumbled across recently....
@ Ross LeaBracketing Piers Corbyn with the Slayers doesn't enhance Piers's credibility at all.
Paul Matthews, I see that the amount that Koch have spent has doubled since this morning at Desmog. As per usual there's no attempt to split climate lobbying with other sorts of lobbying. Even if it was all spent on AGW the figure is derisory. Even FIFA demanded more than that for support for a single tournament, let alone significant long term change.
I see warmists are pushing a YouGov?SundayTimes internet based poll on Concerns for climate on You Gov'ssite, ..alarmist website CarbonBrief .. So you see any flaws ?
There's strong competition for Green Twit of the Day this morning.
Grist says that the best way to get people to agree with you is to shout abuse at them. "Environmentalists and Democrats should beat climate science deniers over the head with aggressive attacks until they realize it is in their interest to back climate action."
At the Independent, Craig Bennett, the white middle-class Cambridge man who's the new head of FOE on a salary of £80k says that the Green Movement needs to get out of its white middle-class ghetto.
The Grauniad has two entries: One on Koch funding, being ridiculed by Barry in the comments, and one from Fiona Harvey regurgitating all the tired cliches "No plan B", "Last chance" in regard to the Paris meeting.
and that cancelled meeting
Piers does know how to "blow his own trumpet"
Piers got the forecast for the Royal Wedding spot on when the MO and others were well wide of the mark. His forecast aside he is a true scientist and calls it as he sees it. He has been predicting a period of global cooling for years now and even the MO now admit that a period of several decades of no temperature increase is on the cards. Very few warmist will dare to debate him. His last meeting scheduled for a room in the House of Commons was sabotaged by a late change of venue. WUWT have a blind spot when it comes to Piers Corbyn and the Slayers.
@Sandy Yes I spent 2 hours looking thru Willis evaluation of Piers on WUWT for July 2015 (post 1 and 2) and concluded they on that they are both as bad as each other.Piers - Presentation is a bit astrologer style as his bit of cherrypicking his "results afterwards"Willis - Analysis of Piers was a similar non precise style, in that he didn't retabulate Piers report into a form of rigourous claims, but set out with a bit of an attitude of "to get Piers". So he got very excited at claim Piers had made that rain would spoil the opening of the London Olympics. He also got a bit carried away fixating a paragraph at the end of the June predictions which made vague claims about July, when he should have been looking at the July predictions pdf itself. It didn't help that they shouted at each other, but it turned out Pier's pdf that he emailed Antony Watts had got filtered into the spambox....That Olympics claim should have had too much weight put on it as it was too specific ..One commenter argued it did rain in the general London area, but just by luck it didn't over the Olympic Park.#1 Piers is a great speaker seeming honest and open.#2 However if his such a great forecaster why hasn't he been bought up by big corporate investors Google style ? Cos every kid who has a whiff of internet potential does seem to get bought up.
stewgreen Although Piers Corbyn over eggs the pudding with regard to his weather forecasts. Getting him to give accuracy information does seem difficult (unless you have a source of forecast v actual for WeatherAction). So I'm with those who are sceptical about just how good he is at forecasts, saying he's better than the MO doesn't really cut it because saying tomorrow's weather will be like today is also more accurate than the MO. There are also a lot of people who swear by The Old Farmer's Almanac and round these parts Lunar gardening calendars which give forecasts up to 12 months ahead.
On the other hand his position on CO2 is entirely sensible, which appears to be the main thrust in the comments.
I was going to pose a question about what it means for climate issue if Piers Corbyn's brotherJeremy is elected leader. I see Guido tries to mock Piers but unusally almost none of his commenters agree with him
