10. Piers Corbyn was earlier known as a climate change denier, now a kooky mayoral candidate

Piers Corbyn is an astrophysicist who regularly speaks at climate science denial events. He is founder and director of the weather forecasting company WeatherAction. [3], [4], [5]

Corbyn bases his forecasts on activity happening on the surface of the sun. He claims the sun is the main driver behind changes in global temperature, rather than human activities and the burning of fossil fuels. [6]
...
Corbyn characterises climate science as a tool of “globalists” and sees George Soros as a kingpin in a global movement of “globalist elites” who are using climate science as a cover for deindustrialising the West. He has appeared at events alongside conspiracy theorists, including Holocaust denier Nicholas Kollerstrom. [8], [9]

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Corbyn has been at the forefront of promoting misinformation and conspiracy theories about Covid-19, and has led and attended a number of anti-lockdown protests. [29], [30]

Talking of divine prophets, Piers Corbyn, brother of the former Labour Party leader is also running. He is a “maverick weather forecaster”-turned conspiracy theorist who claimed last year that Bill Gates and George Soros were behind Coronavirus tweeting: “THE AIM IS A WORLD POPULATION CULL (‘people cause #CO2 problem’) by their mass vaccination plan containing poison.”

A few months later, he was suspended permanently from Twitter but he has been seen popping up at anti-lockdown events ever since.

The Express frequently wrote stories based on what Corbyn said about climate change. He certainly benefitted from the publicity.
