On the 2nd December I posted the latest R5 forecast from Piers Corbyn with two weather scenarios for the USA and Europe. The period in question was for the 5th - 7th December, and today there is news of a M7.4 Earthquake in Japan that has followed a huge Filament Eruption on the surface of the Sun.
We have seen Solar Climate Change (Solar events on the Sun that make changes to the Earth) repeat several times before and no doubt will see it again in the future and yet the media, and this sadly includes Anthony Watts at WUWT, have put "Solar Climate Change" into the "crack pot" area.
As regular followers at this site have seen before there ARE solar episodes that make changes to the Earth's surface and climate that CAN be forecast in ADVANCE by Piers Corbyn and yet there is no funding available to research these events...WHY?
The question then is this...... who is the "real" denier of these events being related, us or the media (inc. WUWT)?
Well done to Piers Corbyn for a correct R5 forecast...more to follow soon.

FILAMENT ERUPTION - SpaceWeather.com A filament of magnetism snaking more than 400,000 km around the sun's southwestern limb became unstable and erupted on Dec. 6th. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the filament flinging a portion of itself into space:
Japan earthquake tsunami warning issued - BBC News
A tsunami warning has been issued after a 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's eastern coast.
The epicentre of the quake was about 245km (150 miles) south-east of Kamiashi at a depth of about 36km, the US Geological Survey said. The quake was felt in the capital Tokyo and a one-metre tsunami is reported to have reached the city of Ishinomaki in Miyagi Prefecture.

Swarm of quakes rattles New Zealand - stuff.co.nz/national
A magnitude 5.8 quake was felt widely throughout New Zealand this morning and was followed by a swarm of smaller tremors.
The larger quake struck at 7.19am. It was 175 kilometres deep and centred 20km south east of Tokoroa.
It was felt widely throughout New Zealand, particularly in the central North Island and in Wellington, where people reported it as being moderate or strong, GeoNet reported.
It was felt as far north as Kerikeri and as far south as Southland, where it was described as "light".
Nearly 9000 people have reported feeling the quake on the GeoNet website.
The magnitude 5.8 quake was one of 28 quakes, ranging from magnitude 1.2 to 5.8, so far today, according to GeoNet.
Five of those quakes have been centred near Tokoroa.
A 3.7 tremor which struck just four minutes after the 5.8 quake, was also widely felt throughout the North Island. It was centred 15km east of Tokoroa and was 198km deep.
Five more quakes have followed, another magnitude 2.6 quake was centred just north of Tokoroa and a 2.9 quake which struck at 7.31am was 15km south of Tauranga.
Smaller quakes were centred near Whanganui and Murupara
