Scientist Piers Corbyn Decimates IPCC Report

Oct. 21, 2018 (EIRNS)—Piers Corbyn, a British astrophysicist, whose WeatherAction specializes in long-range weather forecasting, dismantled the UN IPCC climate change report in an Oct. 9 live debate broadcast live by London Broadcasting Company (LBC).

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), released Oct. 8, threatened terrifying consequences to the planet if all nations do not “take rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society.” Using the pretext that global temperature increase must be held at or below 1.5°C, and that carbon emissions must be lowered by 1 million tons per year, the plan would genocidally cut global agro-industrial production and living standards. It attempts to halt the goal by China’s Belt and Road Initiative to lift hundreds of millions out of poverty and into real development.

Corbyn’s interlocutors in the debate was Stuart Haszeldine, a geologist and director of Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage with the University of Edinburgh, which would attempt to “put greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and ocean back into their geological and biological storage.”

Addressing the IPCC document “Global Warming of 1.5°C,” Corbyn told LBC host Nick Ferrari,

“This report is a pack of lies, it is anti-scientific nonsense, based on fraud.... I’ll challenge the IPCC and the professor [Haszeldine] just speaking: There is no scientific paper in existence, that shows that increases of carbon dioxide worldwide drive world temperature rises. There’s nothing of the sort anywhere in existence.”

When Haszeldine attempted to rebuke Corbyn, stating that, “The physics of CO2 are really clear, I can do an experiment on my kitchen table,” Corbyn countered, “CO2 has no effect on temperatures. The levels of CO2 are driven by temperature.” Corbyn continued, “And that is borne out by actual scientific measurements, not models.”

In a Nov. 25, 2009 live debate on RT TV, on the eve of the Dec. 7-19, 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, Corbyn had asserted, “More CO2 makes plants and animals more efficient.”

EIR interviewed Corbyn in its June 1, 2007 issue, titled “Don’t Bet on Man-Made Origins of Global Warming.”
