For some reason I’ve been honoured by a burst of comments from Piers “Solar” Corbyn, a man not ashamed to be associated with TGGWS.
PC defends his predictions of the mighty storm surge (without mentionning whether or not he predicted it would turn out to be dull), provides us with his CV (a priviledge indeed, if you click on “CV” at weatheraction you get “You are not authorized to view this resource”). PC claims some scientific pubs but when I search nothing shows up in ISI. And then one on bets.
Some of the later may be interesting:
2007 UK / England Temperatures will not be highest ‘ever’ – We will bet anyone £1000 on this. (‘ever’ = historical records)
2007 World Temperatures will not be the highest ‘ever’ (contrary to the expectations of some) – We will bet anyone £1000 on this.
Detailed weather forecasting by the SWT is possible 2 years ahead. The SWT holds that all major cyclic /quasi-cyclic events of Earth’s weather – such as El Nino and Stratospheric wind switching (‘Quasi-Biennial Oscillation’) every 28 mths are of solar origin.
New advance: SWT Climate outlook. In the 7yrs up to 2013 World average Temperature in any calendar year will not exceed the 1998 peak levels (95% confidence).
If PC is really offering even odds on the last one, I might take him up. Or is he offering even odds? Presumably if he is really 95% confident, then he ought to offer 20 to 1?
