US Govt Caught Hiding Earthquake Data to Discredit Climate Skeptic Expert?

By: John O’ Sullivan

New evidence shows US is not reporting worrying increase in earthquake activity predicted by independent skeptic expert.

Independent observers are monitoring an upsurge in seismic activity that began occurring across the United States during April 5 and 6 2011. It is feared that an earthquake similar in magnitude or greater than that which recently devastated Japan may hit the U.S. any time.

A live feed from the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) internet seismic server inexplicably went offline several times in a two-day period at a time when it appears increased seismic activity was occurring across the United States. The ANSS has offered no explanation for the anomaly.

The tremors are occurring at the precise time forecasted by Piers Corbyn, a leading British astrophysicist and weather forecaster. Corbyn believes heightened solar activity impacts not only our climate but also sets off earthquakes. Lately charged particles from solar flares have impacted our planet’s upper atmosphere at speeds of 560 miles per second.

Citizen Scientists Expose Government Cover Up

Reaction in the blogosphere has been instant. A YouTube video ‘New Madrid — multiple charts show movement — USGS censors data again’graphically illustrates how increased seismic activity is showing up via publicly accessible government data yet the U.S. authorities themselves are not reporting this latest worrying development.

The main agency responsible, United States Geological Survey (USGS) is another arm of corporate government like NASA, the EPA, the FDA which has been under sustained criticism for similarly manipulating global warming data.

Instruments show signs of significant seismic activity in a wide arc across Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and Georgia. A 3.6 magnitude quake (minor) yesterday occurred in Greenbriar, Arkansas but conspicuously, the Helicorder for Portageville Missouri showed nothing on their maps. According to Richter scale seismic activity of 6 or above is considered ‘strong’ and is destructive in areas up to about 160 kilometres (100 mi) across in populated areas. A magnitude 3.6 quake caused Nevada’s PEPCON fuel plant explosion in 1988.

In a 9-minute video commentator, ‘dutchsinse suggests that such a broad spread of so-called “harmonic movement” across the continent as “concerning.” Coincidentally, the Pacific Northwest volcano webcorders also showed earthquake activity for this same period.

‘Dutch’ is also concerned that government-funded researchers may be intentionally censoring inconvenient seismic activity that would lend credence to Corbyn’s claims that lunar gravitational forces are instrumental not only on Earth’s climate but also on earthquake activity.

Corbyn has only recently launched his new earthquake forecasting service encouraged by the dramatic upsurge of interest in his highly successful long-range weather forecasting. It seems he may also be well set to provide an equally indispensable public service with his earthquake predictions.

On his WeatherAction.com website Corbyn announced:

“The 6-9th April is our first major (Trial) Earthquake risk period of April and comes with related extreme weather events forecasts. In these trial periods we expect an increase in the serious M6.0 and above quakes in quake vulnerable locations (and related increases in lower level activity) around the world such as the Pacific ‘ring of fire’. This includes the WEST USA which in this time period is probably more vulnerable than for decades.”

Coincidentally, the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management issued a press release (April 5, 2011) cancelling a media conference scheduled  for yesterday on earthquake preparedness.

Public Not Being Advised as to the Dangers

The greatest concern is for the Yellowstone National Park’s super volcano that also recently took a deep “breath” causing miles of ground to rise dramatically. Yellowstone’s caldera, which covers a 25- by 37-mile (40- by 60-kilometer) area of Wyoming, is an ancient crater formed after the last big blast, some 640,000 years ago.

Volcanologists say the simmering giant volcano is due another cataclysmic event. Such an eruption would be a thousand times more powerful than Mount St. Helen’s 1980 eruption.

Concerned citizens may wish to Twitter @USGS and demand to know why they are not reporting the data about these known earthquake events.

High Earthquake Risk Now Imminent Say Two Leading Experts

By: John O’Sullivan

A U.S. geologist and British astrophysicist warn the Earth is now entering a heightened period of seismic activity that may trigger earthquakes.

Two prominent experts hold the view that earthquakes are not random events and may now be predicted in advance due to increasing sophistication in observational and predictive techniques.

American earthquake forecaster Jim Berkland warns of a “high risk” seismic window and potential for a massive quake poised to strike somewhere in North America between March 19th to 26th 2011. British astrophyscist and weather forecaster, Piers Corbyn confirms Berkland’s predictions on Climaterealists.com website (March 22, 2011) and warns the dangers are “imminent.”

‘Perfect Storm’ of Tides, the Equinox and Closeness of Moon

Berkland, a former USGS Geologist, warns that we are seeing a coincidence of several natural phenomena including the closest approach of the moon since 1992, plus a full moon coinciding with the equinoxal tide. He warns that this convergence of three of the most important tide raising factors is a “seismic window” of additional stresses on the Earth’s crust that may trigger quakes.

Meanwhile, Britain’s leading independent long range weather forecaster, Piers Corbyn, speaking on his WeatherAction.com website reports, “the world is now in one of its most extreme solar-lunar driven weather and earthquake/volcano events situations for at least 66 years and very likely twice that.”

Berkland suggests that in this top seismic window in years, the west coast of the United States is a high risk area. Piers Corbyn is less specific on the location but believes the time of highest risk is in the five day period of 23th to the 27th March.

Both experts emphasize the enormous power and influence that the sun and moon have on our planet. Such forces impact us in terms of both geological activity and Earth’s climate.

According to Corbyn it was the ‘X Class’ solar flare of March 10, 2011 that caused a significant hit on the Earth by a coronal mass ejection, which was reported by NASA. He says this, in turn, triggered the massive Japan super quake (M=9.0) the following day.

Dangers in the Pacific Ring of Fire

The most earthquake and tsunami prone region on Earth is known as the Pacific Ring of Fire. Around 80 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur around this volatile region that circles the Pacific Ocean (National Geographic).

It is here where plate tectonic movements of the continents generate enormous stresses on the planet’s crust. This build up of stress at the plate boundary causes rock to fracture; the plates grind past each other and the energy is suddenly released in the form of an earthquake.

British Weather Guru Labels Met Office as Evil Dictator of Science

By: John O’ Sullivan 

February 20th, 19:53

As more evidence shows the sun drives our climate a leading forecaster labels the cult of man-made global warming  “the Mubarak regime of Science.”

Britain’s best independent weatherman, Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction launches a blistering attack on the UK’s Met Office for repeatedly trumpeting claims that floods can be attributed to human impacts on climate. The Met Office has long been a key supporter of climatologists claiming carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted by humans will bring about catastrophic climate change.

Corbyn counters:

“If there were any truth in their claims we would have seen a continuous increase in floods (and other extremes according to their catechism) during the last century and also in the last ten years because CO2 has been rising continuously.”

With his usual flamboyant cut and thrust the maverick marvel from WeatherAction puts the doomsaying cult to the sword with a visual presentation created specifically for a new series of talks and seminars. Corbyn claims his set of damning slides are based on indisputable facts and are geared towards better explaining the basics to non-scientists.

In his easy to follow step-by-step analysis Corbyn expertly debunks the claims of a clique of self-serving “carbon crazy” climatologists. He asks us to compare their forecasts to his own sensational results. This, he says, is the best evidence to show who is more credible on the science. Corbyn is adamant that climate varies strictly according to changes in our enormous and powerful sun and not in any way determined by a tiny amount of CO2 (under 0.04 percent) in our atmosphere.

More Extreme Weather Events Coming Says Corbyn

After years of being shunned by a mainstream media that are still sold on the doomsaying spin, Piers has nonetheless become a notable figure always pressured to speak at meetings and conference events across Britain whenever he can. Attentive listeners are most impressed with his masterful display in what is such a contentious field of applied science.

Dismissive of the billion dollar propaganda machine that has been touting the global warming scare for two decades, Corbyn insists changes in solar activity are, and always will be, the key and humans have no measurable effect whatsover on our climate.

Speaking recently in front of a packed audience the guru from WeatherAction spelled out the facts:

“It’s time for a reality check. What works works and what doesn’t doesn’t. We can now show the events on the sun which precede our predicted extreme events which we can usually get right 85% of the time to a day or so from months ahead.”

Corbyn is a tough cookie to eschew. With his uncanny knack of foreseeing a long list of extreme weather events – including the Russian heatwave and Pakistan floods; the coldest December for 100 years in Britain; the series of giant blizzards in America and supercyclone Yasi that thrashed Queensland – no one can doubt his success rate.

In acknowledgement of his astonishing achievements 2010 ended as an award-winning year for Corbyn as he scooped the Stairways Press Ernst-Georg Beck Award plus a check for $10,000.

Adding further authority to Corbyn’s claims a recent BBC news broadcast highlighted how the sun has lately been threatening to wreak further havoc on our weather. A burst of solar flares came close to knocking out satellites, electrical power supplies and communications networks worldwide (February 17-20 2011).

BBC viewers were shown how a newly released archive of geomagnetic records stretching back to the Victorian era allows us to comprehend for ourselves just how powerful “space weather” really is. Such solar storms in the past have caused huge disruption and there is little, if anything, we can do about them.

How is Corbyn Right Time after Time?

WeatherAction uses all such geomagnetic records as shown in the above BBC report along with a set of Corbyn’s bespoke mathematical indicators, or parameters. These include “lunar modulators” added to the mix which are then compared to past weather sequences to identify similarities with current trends.

By applying Corbyn’s inimitable technique WeatherAction has found that past patterns are extraordinarily useful as guides to predicting future weather. At no time does Corbyn apply any data related to carbon dioxide or other so-called ‘greenhouse gases.’

Instead, Corbyn aligns himself with those many scientists and writers who devastatingly disproved the greenhouse gas theory in the current best-seller, ‘Slaying the Sky Dragon.’

Piers explains to intrigued spectators why the latest crop of freak weather events are happening.

“The first thing to get clear is that simultaneous superstorms on different sides of the globe are meteorologically disconnected – it would take weeks for air to blow between them – so the reason for their simultaneity can only be by external solar-based cause which (with lunar modulation) has a world-wide simultaneous effect.”

Unlike those “junk climate scientists” playing with computer models, Corbyn always factors into his calculations solar and lunar influences. The latest output of his number crunching has prompted WeatherAction to issue three more worrying “level red warnings” for upcoming extreme weather events.

So how accurate are those global warming predictions?

Evidently most are not very accurate at all. From Fox you can read about “8 Botched Environmental Forecasts.” There’s more, like the MET Office in Britain predicting a mild winter in 2010-2011, not to mention other warmists faux pas.

Below is one to whet your appetite. Considering all the Snowmageddons we’re having it seems very appropriate. Britain is even set to possibly have the coldest winter in 1,000 years. Yes 1,000, not 100 not 10.

1. Within a few years “children just aren’t going to know what snow is.” Snowfall will be “a very rare and exciting event.” Dr. David Viner, senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, interviewed by the UK Independent, March 20, 2000.

Well, I”d suggest Dr. Viner go ask someone in the UK or NYC about this “rare” snowfall. He could also ask anyone in much of Europe. Germany got snow bombed and Paris basically shut down, including the airport. Snow was even reported in Rome and the Island of Capri. Even Miami is having the coldest December on record.

Here’s another prediction that’s gone down the toilet. It seems that all those predictions of massive sea-level rise are so much BS, too. From I Hate the Media we get this one “About those global sea level predictions: Never mind

You can read the whole thing here, but you can see from the chart below that those predictions that have idiots proclaiming that New York City will soon look like Atlantis are a joke.

Based on this I can't fathom why anyone believes in Anthropogenic Global Warming

The warmer predictions and the above chart ARE proof that P.T. Barnum (or whomever said it) was correct when he said “There’s a sucker born every minute.” It seems to me that big Al and the AGW crowd have found most of the suckers on the planet who continue to believe in global warming when it’s blatantly obvious it’s a total crock of BS.

So, next time you hear some BS prediction that we’re all going to die from global warming I’d suggest you do some nosing around before you put that $20 into the Church of Global Warming’s donation basket.

If you’re going to believe forecasts I’d suggest you check out Piers Corbyn or Joe Bastardi, who seem to have a much better record than the warmers who seem to base their predictions upon what they wish would happen instead of reality.

More CO2 Insanity.

How Brutal Winter Cold Fits Global Warming: John O’Sullivan

 

Maverick Outwits Climate Science in Global Warming Predictions Game

As Britain’s top independent forecaster (a skeptic) again outwits his global warming adversaries in weather prediction, we examine what really separates the men from the boys in this hot topic.

Award winning maverick forecaster, Piers Corbyn’s unparalled success in outperforming his rivals (global warming believers) is winning him deserved column inches in the British press. The man who, in 2010 predicted a trio of major rare events (Pakistan floods, Moscow heat wave, Britain’s brutal winter) gives us a rare glimpse into why he’s so successful, to the great embarrassment of his main rivals, the Met Office.

The simple truth is no mystery. Corbyn doesn’t rely on what he refers to as “junk computer models” that he claims are routinely fed highly spurious temperature data. But more pointedly, the sage astrophysicist insists the vital ingredient in his method is adding to the mix solar and lunar variability, which conventional climatologists dismiss as being of less importance than human emissions of carbon dioxide.

Corbyn raises a wry smile at the mention of the phrase ‘greenhouse gases.’ “More junk science!” He recommends a more compelling analysis of that theory here.

As the 63-year-old attests, while his predictions are so eerily accurate and his rivals so wantonly askew, can we now deduce there is a fundamental flaw in his rivals’ methodology? Let’s look closer at the science.

Skeptics Argue Poor Temperature Data Records Skew Analyses

Critics of government-funded climate research have long argued that one of the most insidious acts in recent decades has been the wanton culling of global weather stations maintaining real world thermometer readings. As reported by ‘A Sceptical Mind,’

“In the last 25 years there has been an accelerating reduction in thermometer counts globally with the pace of deletion rising rapidly in recent years. Over 6000 stations were active in the mid-1990s. Just over 1000 are in use today.”

Many of the ‘lost’ thermometers were (and still are) located in Polar Regions. For example, Canada has 100 perfectly usable weather stations inside the Arctic Circle-but only one at Eureka on Ellesmere Island – is used by government-funded climatologists.

So why does this matter? Critics have long pointed out that fewer data collection centers means less reliable data. They argue the ulterior motive for climatologists dropping thousands of perfectly serviceable thermometers is to allow computer modelers a freer hand to ‘interpolate’ their own synthetic data e.g. fill the gaps with their own ‘confirmation bias.’ Some of us would call that fraud.

The ‘Bolivia Effect’ Warms our new SIM Planet

The confirmation bias of climate modelers also skews the data for weather forecasters, as succinctly shown by E.M Smith who calls this the ‘Bolivia Effect.’ Smith tells us that, “There has not been any thermometer data for Bolivia in GHCN since 1990.” Why is that significant? Well, Bolivia is one of the 5,000 ‘cooler’ weather stations that climatologists have conveniently dumped from the Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN).

Remember Al Gore’s ‘Canary in the Coal Mine’?

Noted climate alarmist, Al Gore once famously asked that we look to the Arctic for the ‘canary in the coal mine’ of climatic change. How convenient for Al when the Arctic has been virtually stripped of thermometers.

Are we seriously to believe that despite over $80 billion being spent to date on climate research the budget has no room to maintain ‘cooler’ global thermometers? Aren’t weather forecasters entitled to be given a clearer picture of actual shifts in global weather patterns more reliable than what Climategate investigator Lord Oxburgh determined was “subjective” climate data?

This thermometer cull is especially worrisome when we learn that U.S. climate scientists as GISS delete Sea Surface Temperature data from the Arctic Ocean, and a third of data from Antarctica. Now polar temperatures have to be based on thermometers 1,200km away!

Thus it’s little wonder that during yet another brutal winter’s icy blast NASA and their fellow alphabet gravy train riders can trumpet 2000-2010 as the “hottest decade” in recorded history.

Tired of ‘Warming Causes Cooling’ Claims

But not to be outdone by revelations of their statistical shenanigans, climate doomsayers are now resorting to dismissing Corbyn and Co. for daring to suggest a recent crop of cold winters is the harbinger of a new mini ice age.

“Warming causes cooling, too” according to the disjointed thinking of those folks at realclimate.org, the hub of doomsaying lore and who have been chopping and changing their take on this issue for years. However, anyone who has read the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports will know that nowhere in their literature do they claim any such long-term effect.

Reliance on Computer Simulations Led to Faulty Forecasting

Like other skeptics Corbyn, who runs London-based WeatherAction, believes a doomsaying clique intentionally worsened the problem by encouraging climate modelers worldwide to trust ‘official’ data. Thus, even honest scientists and weather forecasters become the inadvertent ‘useful idiots’ of the scam as they blithely load their own computers with pure warmist “GIGO”- or ‘garbage in, garbage out.”

What has saved Corbyn from the taint of this GIGO mass epidemic is that he has had the great foresight, nay, genius, the stick to the traditional scientific method and not touch GHCN’s nefarious numbers.

While the duped and the doomsayers at the UK’s Met Office have been erring time and again predicting warmer temperatures, the maverick 63-year-old astrophysicist has been making detailed and precise calibrations from the sun and moon coupled with further data analysis of past temperature records (not junk ‘homogenized’ variants from GHCN, NASA GISS, HadCrut, NOAA, etc).

Despite being mocked by the alphabet soup brigade riding their governmental gravy trains, WeatherAction has risen from within the private sector and can no longer be ignored by the mainstream press. Corbyn’s telling warning of “ the worst winters for 100 years” was extensively reported across the blogosphere as were his Pakistan flood and Moscow heat wave forecasts.

Corbyn, the Man who came in From the Cold

A bemused Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, warmly praised Corbyn in the Daily Telegraph (December 22, 2010).

In these cold, harsh recession-hit commercial times Mayor Johnson is attuned to the fact Britain can afford no room for expensive government failures. The 46-year-old who has never seen a winter like this one berated the Met Office, which, despite being taxpayer-funded to the tune of hundreds of millions, is year after year being out-predicted by Corbyn.

In 2009 more than 25,000 people died in England and Wales as a result of the nation’s coldest temperatures since 1978. This year that gruesome tally is sure to be exceeded as Britain is yet again caught out and ill prepared for another brutally cold winter.

Johnson, close to Westminster’s corridors of power, has helped usher in the one man who really ought to be brought in from the cold. Other media outlets take note. But Corbyn’s successes are no surprise to most skeptics. Bookmakers haven’t been taking weather bets off him for years and Dr Dennis Wheeler of the University of Sunderland justified the “85 percent success rate” claim with a peer-reviewed paper. Some argue if the British government were truly concerned about giving taxpayers better value for money they’d appoint Corbyn as head of the Met Office. But pigs aren’t yet learning to fly in London.

Confirmation Bias Persists Among Government Agencies

UK taxpayers still suffer, as most major media outlets remain wedded to the global warming doomsaying and any and all confirmation bias fitting their mindset. The current annual tax bill to ‘fight’ Britain’s global warming is set at £18 billion thanks to politicians unanimously voting in the Climate Change Act (2008). This is a pattern of mass delusion well-known to psychologists.

Those afflicted with this malaise are possessed by what is termed ‘attitude polarization;’ they become intently focused on only one possibility and ignore all other alternatives.

As a further case in point, this year’s Moscow heat wave was widely trumpeted in the press as proof of global warming. However, those same media outlets are studiously ignoring the current predicament of an icebound Russia where experts are anticipating the coldest winter in 1,000 years.

Interpolated ‘Guessed’ Artic Temperatures Skew Weather Forecasts

Corbyn like other skeptics, can outdo Al Gore’s ‘canary’ and it’s the world’s most accurate scientific barometer of climate change; the 351-year-old Central England Temperatures [CET]). Scientist and non-scientist alike can peer into this ‘coal mine’ and see not one shred of evidence for man-made global warming.

This much-ignored yet century’s-long gentle line of temperatures most evidently exposes the establishment’s doomsaying confirmation bias. When scientists (and their government and media buddies) use facts so selectively, and interpret them in a biased way we know they are no longer honest messengers but advocates of an ideology.

Finally, for those possessed of a more open mind and who scorn the aforesaid propaganda, here’s another severe weather warning from Piers (ignore at your peril):

WeatherAction World RED WARNING for extreme weather 25-31 Dec

“WeatherAction forecasted weeks ahead that there will be many dangerous weather events around the world in the period 25-31 Dec and specified a triple whammy of extreme events for Britain/NW Europe, NE/E USA and South/East Queensland Australia.”

Don’t say the skeptics didn’t tell you.
