As the world is gripped by extreme weather, the global warming sceptics are gaining ground. Who is winning the battle for our hearts and minds?
Global-warming sceptics are gaining ground, but are they full of hot air? (Jasper James)
In a basement in London, in probably the smallest office in the world, an American television crew is demanding to know what the weather will be like on April 29, the day Prince William marries Kate Middleton. Any mainstream meteorologist would tell them their question is unanswerable so far in advance. But Piers Corbyn is not mainstream.
“It looks like being a cool day with blustery showers, although we do have to see if there will be a blocking high pressure to keep things away. But to do it properly we need a little more time.”
Corbyn, who is the brother of the Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn, has the air of a Dickensian clerk — crazy hair, disordered clothes, and he sniffs persistently through a giant nose. “He comes across,” muses one climate scientist, “as mad as a hatter, but he’s not daft.”
Not being daft makes him, to the vast majority of climate scientists, a very dangerous man indeed and one in serious need of a good slap.
“He is… an utter prat.”
It's self-sustaining nonsense where anybody who wishes to be part of the establishment dare not stand up and say it’s nonsense
That was Professor Philip Jones of the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit. His view of Corbyn appeared in one of the leaked emails in the “Climategate” scandal, which proved to global warming sceptics that scientists like Jones were prepared to rig the evidence to advance their case. Corbyn, you see, thinks that global warming is a scam, a fraud, bad science, you name it. “There is no evidence whatsoever,” he says, “for any long cycle connected with carbon dioxide, absolutely none.”
