Jeremy Corbyn’s brother claims ‘man-made climate change does not exist’

Jeremy Corbyn’s astrophysicist brother has claimed that ‘man-made climate change does not exist’ and is ‘manufactured’ by journalists. Piers Corbyn, 72, says claims of widespread consensus on the topic of man-made climate change are false.

In April, Piers branded 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg an ‘ignorant brainwashed child’ who ‘suffers mental abuse by manipulative adults’. Piers believes the root cause of rising temperatures is solar activity which produces natural climate change cycles.

He said: ‘The general trend now is toward colder weather and jet stream fluctuations, and some very warm spells within a generally colder world.

‘I would say man-made climate change does not exist. ‘This is a manufactured story that journalists have put out.

‘If we check it out there is not any evidence that there is a consensus for belief in man-made climate change.’ He supports this claim with a petition from the late 1990s signed by 30,000 sceptical scientists.

The Labour leader’s older brother, who runs forecasting firm WeatherAction, will share his views at The Bigger Picture, a six-hour event at Moose Hall in Swindon, Wiltshire, on Saturday.

Mr Corbyn will talk at the £10-per-ticket seminar with Mark Windows who runs a podcast devoted to what he claims are fake news narratives about global events. The third speaker is Sandi Adams, who believes the UN’s Agenda 21 sustainable development programme is a major threat to human freedom.

But despite Piers’ scepticism, it would appear his younger brother has a very different outlook on climate change. Yesterday, it was announced that Jeremy Corbyn has created a new role on Labour’s front bench, appointing Danielle Rowley as shadow minister for climate justice.

  1. Only crackpot scientists claim that there is warming or man made climate change happening. Al Gore claimed that polar ice would be gone by 2014 – LOOOOL! Many glaciers are growing again, polar bears are ok.
    There is too much bs around data gathering, equipment manipulation, data manipulation, selective data collection, media hype, vested interests, and of course the veritable climate change industry that is now everywhere to treat any of it as real science. It is simply climate change politics. Period. There are lies, there are dastardly lies, and then there is climate change.

  2. My state has 17,000,000 fewer acres of hardwood forests (out of 23,000,000 total) than before the white man came….don’t tell me that climate change is not man made…I watch corn grow 3 months a year and bare ground, chemically denuded, grow NOTHING for 9 months a year. Forests slow winds and rain, hold soils in place and are a HUGE carbon sink….gone. We went from 95% covered to under 15% in 1920 and today at about 20%. Midwest….walk out your back door to see the real problem….baron and chemically controlled, scorched earth…..where vast forests used to be.

    • The word “climate change” is in itself a distraction from the reality of ecological destruction. Besides the examples given above, don’t forget the destruction of the swamps in the delta where original settlements miles inland are now inundated by the waters of the gulf. The swamps formed a protective barrier from hurricanes that now no longer exist.

  3. Yessir — it’s just a control mechanism like anti-nuclear proliferation. But like the latter also, it has its merits. So, generally, we should strive for renewables and doing less damage to the environment. In that vein, we should pursue the suppliers and not the consumers. The source, not the downstream purchasers. The ones who put the rows and rows of plastic into the stores, not the ones who are dumb enough to buy them.

    • Agreed. But the suppliers ignore the myth of “peak oil” while their menu features “eugenics.”
