Solar activity caused recent extreme weather in USA
If you watch the above April 2, 2012, you-tube video (click here if you can't see it) from Piers Corbyn's www.weatheraction.com, you will find at the 5:30 mark that he correctly predicted March's extreme weather in the USA:
Later in the video, Corbyn predicts more tornadoes and other extreme events coming to the American midwest between April 22-24, which precisely coincides with the huge winter storm that is arriving tomorrow, precisely the day he predicted.
He holds that the current extreme weather is due to a certain configuration which appears every 60 years, plus or minus 5 years, causing the same sort of extreme weather each time. He explains:
Corbyn is an astrophysicist and bases his predictions upon solar magnetic factors (such as sunspots) and lunar factors. He looks for repetitions of historic patterns and bases his forecasts on what those patterns led to in the past. He makes his money, mostly from insurance companies, by successfully predicting extreme weather events in Great Britain. We are fortunate that he is starting to make predictions about USA weather these days. He is a brilliant genius who is discovering patterns that nobody ever noticed before.
Meanwhile global warming activists are in the midst of a big propaganda campaign, called "Connect the Dots," designed to convince the public that the current extreme weather events are due to global warming, not due to the solar events that actually cause them. The New York Times reported the success of their disinformation campaign on April 17 (In Poll, Many Link Weather Extremes to Climate Change). Here is how their story begins:
There are two competing theories. The solar/cosmic ray theory successfully predicts weather and climate. The global warmers' theory correctly predicts opinion polls.

Best line I've seen in a long time: "The global warmers' theory correctly predicts opinion polls."

"The solar/cosmic ray theory successfully predicts weather and climate. The global warmers' theory correctly predicts opinion polls." - I'm laughing out loud, because it's so true!
