I came across a Met Office news release the other day entitled Leading in the science of risk, the essence of this report was that one of their team (a leading Met Office scientist no less) had been awarded a prize for his achievement in risk management. This award was for being able to understand the behavior of the "jet stream" when there is a shift. I can assure you I nearly fell over on reading this, apparently when the "jet stream" changes its location there is an increase in rain over Europe.
So reading between the lines, this guy (Dr Adam Scaife) sees the alteration of the Jet Stream and then comes up with a warning system for Europe. If I only knew they gave out awards for coming up with that sort of information I would have got onto the phone to Piers Corbyn, but alas as he says the effect of "man made" co2 is bunk, the Met Office and those who support "man made" climate change would not and never will give him anything but a cold shoulder.
Those of you who follow Piers Corbyn would know his work concerns not only when there is a high chance of jet stream change, he then uses a "look back" to time periods for a repeat occurrence of similar weather patterns, and is about right in his forecasting conclusions, be it in Europe or as we have seen many times before from other locations in the world. It was only last year, Piers informed us when the Moscow heatwave and Pakistan floods would start and end using his method of "look back"
Piers follows a proven track record on Solar Activity and the Moons lunar influence on the Earth, in the same way we use the Lunar influence on the tide. So having Solar Activity added to the Lunar influence is not such a crazy thing to do.
The Sun by the way has a predictable nature, and during each solar cycle, it has a repeat pattern going on amongst the location of the Sun Spots, and if you happen to be an Astrophysicist you can forecast these solar changes with the location of the Moon for a high chance of a repeat effect (135 year ish periods) on the Earth well in advance. However if your from the Met Office you tend to report this "effect" as the "cause" of the weather, and in fact it IS the other way around, it's little wonder that the Met Office has got their sums wrong on climate change!!!
So going back to the remarkable award given to the said Met Office personal (a leading scientist no less) can he also give the timing for the changes in the jet stream.....er no....has Piers Corbyn been given a prize for his work...er no..have the Met Office got Cause and effect the right way around....er no....can the Met Office predict more then a few days ahead....er no....can Piers Corbyn predict more then a few days ahead.....er YES
