Piers Corbyn is an interesting player. He owns and runs the Weather Action group, a private company, which – since 1995 has been in the business of predicting weather patterns all over the world. In the last couple of years he has been the focus of increased media attention, because of the some of his more controversial and contested long-range predictions coming true with impressive accuracy. His biography tells of an interesting life with a background in astronomy and in political campaigning for squatters’ and tenants’ rights.
Piers political beliefs have led him to become an outspoken critic of the theory of CO2-driven, anthropogenic global warming, which means his results and predictions are ignored by many mainstream media conglomerates. His scientific methods are based on analysis of solar and lunar interaction patterns, with cross-referencing of historical weather data. His youtube channel has an assortment of videos with weather reports, conference footage, as well as television and internet interviews.
Piers considers himself a scientist with a capital S. He believes in science and in what he is doing, but he has refused call to make the exact methodology of his predictions public. He also does not pander to his audience, or go very far out of his way to make his reports engaging to the readers or listeners. It’s all science, explanations of science with the occasional direct political attack on conventional climate change theories. Piers is clearly a no-nonsense, ‘love him or hate him’-kind of guy. Unfortunately, his strident style and lack of complete transparency impinges on his message.
