climate change in the UK …

This bugs me, for the first time ever I can hang out towels at 11pm just short of them dripping with a hand wring from a wash in my downstairs loo sink as per my usual routine (being sans washing machine at this location) and bingo next morning they are dry. This may be usual in say the Caribbean but is not the norm for the north east of England in mid November!

The year end of 2026 is the line in the sand I chose for what is tolerable and what is as mentioned to friend Gary the point at which I presume conditions may well become difficult indeed. COP26 has been an utter failure, who the hell handpicks these numskulls? Pundit Beckwith over on youtube includes footage and dreary as his presentations as ever are they do illustrate some very misleading presentations at COP26. Footnote: Paul, please try and assimilate NT manner and humour…. your fifteen minute vids are hell to get through.

COP26 seems to have utterly disregarded interconnected amplifying feedbacks and their importance, their many-fold increase over anything linear, ‘linear’ being the darling of COP26 and the emasculated head in the sand IPCC and the curse of NOT being able to get a grip on what really is happening.

Chemtrail as it happens…

Chemtrail diary north east England.

Most days for the last few weeks theres always a chemtrail to be seen, often two or three at once, conditions permitting; its safe to assume these are NOT condensation trail but actual chemtrail ie includes nano-particle aluminium. I make few if any assumptions and merely document what I see.

Here is a typical event pictured below at 07:46 GMT this morning but twenty minutes later the sky is near uniformly obscured and further observation pointless.

If further in this day I had raised the matter of chemtrail in the sky I would have been ridiculed.

I wish to heck I had pulled back the curtains earlier, for three or four years when blogging re chemtrail I would have kept the curtains open throughout the night and anyway was often awake by 0600 at any time of the year. Nevertheless this pic shows strong and mature chemtrail particularly to the left of centre of this pic, this is a broad and mature trail, maybe an hour old and well demonstrates why I will not let this matter rest, it has created a man-made haze, if it were condensation trail it would have disappeared in seconds. Additionally, what is gradually percolating from official sources is the term ‘whitening of the skies’.

Last night say 8pm there was a huge chemtrail in the sky, deposited after dark, this is less usual to my observation.

Chemtrail north east England 15th Nov 2021. Note two feint trails at right, mature broad trail at left, say 40-60 minutes old. Pic taken 07:45 GMT.

To the right ninety degrees to this view over the North Sea were also huge long obvious and strong chemtrail. It will be interesting to see what NASA Worldview displays when the data becomes available after 13:30 hrs. In the above pic there could be five chemtrails in this part of the sky, less obvious in the pic than reality. .

COP26 failure…

One country India should not have been allowed to water down the COP26 statement re coal use, the general concensus and plain common sense dictates how we should proceed. Its no use the individual doing his or her best to minimise carbon footprint when its the big emitters and industries that must offer clout and crunch the big numbers.

A statement, merely something on paper, this is what men in suits do best, when will the scientists and engineers be given chance to show their best? I think an alternative to COP needs to be instigated, I would hope such a thing is happening right now. But if you read and listen to tone and the possible outcome of many experts on this, those at the sharp end with knowledge, direct observation and data they too think as I do that a vast chemistry set of reactions has been set in motion and I doubt theres much we can do. For instance look at jet stream, arctic warming, Greenland ice melt, ocean plankton, etc etc.

COP26 was feeble, an obfuscation, fiddling whilst Rome burns.

In all practicality with impending arctic methane and the interconnectedness of amplifying feedbacks its all just window dressing so to speak but as responsible adults and responsible nations we must do our best, we must never give up on this. Though it would be useful to think we could look back and think we did our best the scene set is not good and immediate practical effect of our efforts looks very poor indeed. One point five will soon look irrelevant to everyone, it will blow away in the breeze, but if it helps minds focus then so be it.

Watching silly billionaires pour their money into junk spaceflights and super yachts is uncomfortable to watch; shame upon them, pity we couldn’t boycott their activities, I never have been keen on Amazon anyway. A glorified shopkeeper!

http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/

note in the above the heat over vast at present still withheld gas reserves in northern Canada and likewise the heat exactly over the shallow Laptev Sea ie northern Siberia. In time and we are already in my opinion at that point the Arctic instead of cooling the planet will become a vast engine, an agency of heating, our enemy so to speak. Its only in recent years scientists are working out the worlds water circulation into the Arctic, the importance and danger between fresh and saline, warm and cold.

Ice is funny stuff, once huge bodies of it ie the Greenland ice sheet is most obviously melting with endless melt pools and rivers falling thousands of feet into the interior of the ice massif then theres nothing that in all practicality can be done to halt this process. In pure vengeance I’d like to winch trump and his cronies beneath a helicopter and dump them in the middle of the fast thawing wilderness, a childish idea perhaps, but for the harm and delay they have caused I think perfectly justifiable.

Watch out for methane which exists in three forms, vast trapped reserves, subsea frozen hydrate and as the result of a warming of ancient carbon deposits now being prompted to microbial activity. As repeated already the irony of burning ancient diatomaceous oil and associated gas deposits has led to their oceanic demise, thats half of the world CO2 conversion gone, increasing CO2 also means trees and green land based CO2 conversion activity will also decrease, its their natural reaction. Fun times ahead.

postscript, please read arctic-news.blogspot … here i copy and paste re methane and the IPCC total refusal to acknowledge its importance or apparently its existence !!!

copy and paste …”One of the largest threats is seafloor methane and despite repeated warning from some of the best experts in the field, the IPCC simply waves away this threat. This and other elements in the bar have been discussed in detail in many earlier posts such as this one and on the extinction page.”

Lets look at chemtrails …

Yes, last few days here north east UK noticeable chemtrails, my DQA reporting system I guess an average day is DQA 8.3.3. ie duration 80% of the day, quantity 30% of what could be ‘a bad day’ for chemtrail and affect again 30% in other words sufficient chemtrail to create a greyer whiter sky than the probable near to blue sky we would have had otherwise. Generally chemtrail also noticeable late afternoon as distant horizon to the west, say thirty forty miles distant. At a nearby hill where for near twenty years I fed horses as a one-man charity operation (my money too) as the scrapmen particularly in earlier years were a bit scant on additional feed; it was at this point we can see across this narrow part of northern England and view the west coast flight path that flies above the western Lake District ie Loweswater, Bassenthwaite. Its an interesting application of simple geometry to time for how long they remain in sight, with or without binoculars, its my guess we can se them from Preston to well past Stranraer.

Chemtrails UK…

This morning it was obvious chemtrail overhead at 0900, by 11:00 the sky was much clouded, grey and 90% obscured.

Chemtrails north east England, theres also chemtrail directly above, out of shot. 09:49gmt 8th Nov 2021.

There was at least eight trails in the sky, both above and to my left out of shot.

None of this is conventional condensation trail, it is chemtrail.

Please explore my blog, learn about my DQA reporting system for daily chemtrail observation, of the effects of chemtrail nano-particle aluminium particularly west coast USA, the work of Frances Mangels retired Fisheries Biologist and the tragic demise of life in lakes and rivers. Also seabird collapse from starvation, exacerbation of wildfires from chemtrail aluminium build-up etc etc etc …..

Here below is NASA Worldview for the same day, the time of data capture I’m not sure, I’m guessing late morning; however by 11am the sky was much obscured anyway at this location. Chemtrail whitens the sky, induces cloud cover/ reaction and if over-applied can set the sky into a quite un-natural reaction, something I witnessed at this location two or three years ago. There is lots on this blog re chemtrail. Please realise I have given this time and attention, I am used to technical subjects and observation over an extended period of time, ie days, weeks, months, whatever.

I merely observe and record, I am most wary of ‘assumptions’.

My advice to COP26 Glasgow…

Get a pin, get a map of the world, place the point of the pin to the location of where your initiative, or project or energy saving or tree planting will occur.

RESULT = merely a pin prick in a whole world of CO2 and impending methane release and the myriad of interconnected self-reinforcing feedback effects.

What frightens me particularly is how puny the COP26 is proving to be, how long dated the deadlines actually are, something as by 2030 or 2050 is laughable …. we won’t be here as a species I fear.

Professor Peter Wadhams a world expert on ice and its demise I quote loosely “In that what is needed is a project many multiple times that of the Manhattan Project and of at least equal speed”

In other words of sufficient scale and speed.

Its a huge ocean out there, six sevenths of the worlds surface, its my opinion many of our solutions will have to be ocean based rather than land.

Will it happen …. I doubt it.

COP26 disaster …

COP26 is a failure, worse than I feared it would be.

Where are the scientists, where are the new ideas, the latest data, feedback projections?

It has dumbed down even below what a weak and blind IPCC could have stage managed.

I predicted a huge backlash to mans intransigence and eternal hubris and boy o boy theres going to be some very angry people, and in many senses rightly so.

Its my opinion the UK Government is delighted we are entering rapid and gross inflation, it will massage downwards the huge spend from Rishi, much of the money being quite un-needed, £10k lump sums to small businesses that didn’t need it and a furlough scheme that I reckon has been much abused and which continued for far too long. Covid is still out there but in many instances its a case of “Covid – what covid?”

I’m not impressed on the performance of bbc radio news on getting detail out on what really matters as we move forward to an unstoppable oven of catastrophe, this will make any war look as a minor scale dummy run.

We hardly hear of the feedback effect of multiple systems all catastrophically amplifying each others effect and eventually the collapse of one another, like a house of cards, in essence negating or destroying each single systems ability to survive; lets throw a few probable eventualities around…

  • diatoms and plankton will die, are in fact dieing, therefore half of the world CO2 to O collapses. Who mentions this?
  • the ability of land based green growing things decreases CO2 conversion as CO2 itself increases, never mind methane.
  • aerosol masking multiplier.
  • ice gone, particularly the importance of vertical melt.
  • fact: jet stream now in two parts, dragging warm wet air over the Arctic.
  • fact: sunspot max for 2026 and transition from El Nana to El Nino coincides!
  • weather systems will waver and abandon the worlds conventional food production areas.
  • meat production (burgers?) needs to be drastically curtailed / minimised.
  • live near to your work.
  • does anyone consider pollution from commercial sources, diesel fuelled agriculture, construction and the military?
  • if we are for a fact losing/ have lost insect populations, hence we are losing small songbirds then what if we lose earthworms … that would be catastrophe.
  • if the oceans are warmer and of greater bulk what of tectonic plate shift?
  • existing wind and solar depends on established conventional weather patterns, not weather in flux.
  • we need a one child policy.
  • methane
  • methane
  • methane
  • etc

Nero himself would be aghast as how we are holding our nerve and blind to what is happening, fiddling with inconsequentials when the big things need to be addressed. The tree problem for instance, unless its evergreen ie the conifer then here in northern latitudes we have a thing called autumn leaf fall, likewise most green growing things, for half the year are near to dormant. The tree thing is difficult in the UK, already near all land is used as is most appropriate, theres not much slack.

Still thinking trees, we only have land surface to play with and most of that being unsuitable, yet six sevenths of the worlds surface is water, therefore in my opinion a solution must be water based / oceanic.

Heres an idea, rather than carbon offset which is in itself an often dubious mechanism we could have death offset, pay poor brown people to die instead of ourselves … mighty quicker than a one child policy! Whoops, gallows humour.

But seriously here is a scientist talking

Timescale? I just read stuff (preferably by scientists) … year 2026 will I fear be a much different place than where we are now, see the above bullet point list, year 2030 may well have seen homo sapiens much compromised if not near extinct.

note in the above further down the page mention of ‘hole in sea ice in Laptev Sea 2010’,

The Laptev Sea will become famous for its shallowness and store of methane hydrate now set into melt mode. One could spend day upon day compiling this information, I only hope readers delve further than what at preseent at least at this address appears google presenting an obstacle at seeking out the latest scientific opinion, if it was fashion or burgers or stupid social networking it would be presenting me with a myriad of connections.

Poor Greta …

I abhor groups and crowds at the best of times buts let remember theres going to be one heck of a covid spike after scenes such as this slow moving jumble of people. How horrifying to be trapped in such a manner.

Covid virus is so small two hundred of the virus will fit side by side in one thousandth of an inch … this equates to four hundred virus side by side across the thickness of a human hair ie 0.002in. Lab workers, biochemists etc know fine well as how dastardly small virus can be and how difficult therefore to work with.

Masks may hinder breath projection which is all to the good but I doubt have much effect at scrubbing inward breath, distance is crucial, as is hand washing and minimising cross contamination, imagine its a powerful red dye that sticks to surfaces, keep off!

It is our daily 365 lives that signal our true carbon footprint, at the moment I’ve got my annualised electricity for my house at 86p a day, at the old tariff I wonder if I can get that to below 80p? Now I just need to work on the gas. We mustn’t lose sight that we still need to be productive in our work and business, unless of course our lives are propelled into a new and topsy turvy world of extinct businesses, shortages and limitations.

I fear for the poor, already in the UK Boris and rich kid Rishi are doing their best to knock the poor back, blind to the hardship they are creating with stopping a measley £20 note, this in practical reality anything BUT the handy feelgood ‘levelling up’ as promised. A lot of of what we hear from number ten is mere feelgood mantra, a slogan, a handy peg to hang an air thin promise upon, a soundbite and little else. Look at the decade and more of defunding of the NHS, ditto Education. Boris ‘acts the part’ but is no politician of any great ability, he does not respect Parliament quite obviously and from my observation has no perceptible knowledge or desire to take us to a better place.

I have no fear of the future, its as if we ourselves are a vast experiment viewed from some distant planet so to speak; our journey of exploration and discovery has spanned a hundred thousand years of stone tools to agriculture, to towns and cities, religion, electricity, the electron, things digital etc. I really don’t know if its at all possible to ‘get out of this jam’.

But also I can’t help but feel what a pity we invented the internal combustion engine! knowledge or desire

At least as a species we’ll not go down without an effort.

The more I think about all this the more I get bugged … Mans intransigence and utmost stupidity, trumps one trillion to the already super-wealthy, the craving for the latest bigger and bigger SUV, the multi home and multi car lifestyle. And sadly academics and scientists at least so far to this point having to keep shtum re the real situation, otherwise you get fired, side-lined, demoted, transferred to other duties; the USA particularly endemic of this so very non-scientific manner of managing things.

Lets drag a few other points, elaborate and often wasteful food consumption ….. just look at the problem of obesity. The need for a foreign holiday. The nonsense of countries saying “Look at our reduced carbon footprint” when in fact most our of goods are made in China, shipped across the world and the West has the audacity to accuse Chine of carbon footprint! Lets remember until recent times all through the C20 the near universal personal mode of transport in China was the bicycle.

Meat being dumped, does this figure in the news, the actual amount of meat taken back off supermarket shelves as out of date, I’ve witnessed this late in the evening as standard supermarket practice, is there data on this, is it fully recognised? I think I’ve had merely half a dozen traditional Sunday dinners in thirty years and now cooking my own food even regrettably being a meat eater I can pad out any casserole or stew with lots of veg, herbs and spices, particularly so far with tricks from India and Pakistan, hint … incorporate punchpooran, a five seed mix that to my mind eliminates the need for salt or meat to any great extent.

In my opinion a one child policy is essential.

1.5 degrees is now a nonsense, its obscene to think this is still a valid number, likewise 2050 ….

Anything style ‘2050’ is utter nonsense, we haven’t got the time, I doubt we’ll be here. Likewise I doubt if the vast majority of humans will be here by 2035. I wonder how diluted will be the reports planned for the first day at COP26, I’d like to think there will be a few suprises, maybe scientists will come forward and ‘grow a pair’ so to speak.

This morning I read of the tragic and gross scouring of the sea bed by deep trawling, surely this should have been stopped years ago?

Interestingly its only been this week I’ve encountered the term ‘vertical melt’ … this is exactly what I’ve been railing about all the time I’ve blogged here, ie three / four years. As all kids know, the extent of snow and ice can still appear as it has been first arrived but only at closer observation can we see that in fact its the thickness that much reduces every day until suddenly one morning we wake up and our sledging and fun in the snow has completely gone. That, is the nature of snow and ice.

I cannot believe…

That someone was stupid enough to bring live ie with lead projectile ammunition onto a movie set.

Whoever supplied ‘the props’ I’m assuming lets say the armourer I would assume should NEVER leave his house / HQ with anything other than crimped dummies. There should never have been anything in his vehicle other than dummies … hey folks its a movie set he or she is going to … no-one requires any lead.

Baldwin and the other top brass cannot be blamed or held liable for this surely, they hire folk supposedly savvy in this area, the hired individual carries the can …. IMHO.

When an ordinary person expects and assumes and the ‘expert’ fails them, then its the expert at fault. We pay them for this expertise and their role of supply, but also they accept liability of any failure in this service surely.

My heart goes out to Alec Baldwin, the cast, the family of the deceased.

But please those looking for $ compensation be cautious, be mindful, money is not the remedy.

Chemtrails over England.

Chemtrails over the country club, chemtrails over the golf course, the supermarket, our town ….. any blooomin’ place you can think of today!

Its been low chemtrail activity these last couple of weeks, but near every day a chemtrail or two generally visible, however this morning it is more than that, Monday 25th Oct ’21

At the moment of typing 11am BST its now an all over haze, to my mind chemtrail induced and in the few gaps that appear yes theres more chemtrail.

I wonder how this day will proceed.

Oh yes, maybe in COP26 we will hear of ‘sky whitening’. the bods in charge are looking for an excuse to let this snake out of the bag.

I fear with COP-OUT-26, whoops sorry COP26 in Glasgow is how much will be omitted, how much we are not made aware of and what actual ACTION will result, I mean not protests but merely real world right now solutions ie machines for carbon capture, equipment and remedial processes actually set into action. At the previous COP-OUT Prof Peter Wadhams was sidelined in his contribution, a world expert on ice and ice loss. We know its all quite futile, the vast unstoppable chemistry set of this earths planetary weather systems are now adamantly rolling into a new set of triggers, interactions and relationships, ie the burning of fossil fuels and pollution. Check out the demise of oceanic microscopic diatoms and plankton for their role in carbon capture, as equivalent to all the worlds trees and land based green growing things. Already the circumpolar jet stream is now two circling vortex and dragging warm and wet air over the Arctic. Methane is the biggie, seldom if ever is the real factor of its efficacy truly explained, hundreds of times worse than anything CO2 in its speed of action, we hear in the news ‘eighty-fold’ but in reality the end will be quick and one could say multiply this by a factor of ten. Winston Churchill would say ‘Action this Day’ and HRH Her Majesty the Queen as bright and an intelligent person one could ever imagine is making a special point in attending, to goad the experts to move forward quickly.

What I think we will hear and see is masses of posturing and waffle and hopes for the future etc etc and yet more hopes for the future ….. but ‘man’ cannot turn off its thirst and desire to get more and more of the stuff and the lifestyle it craves, ‘bigger this, bigger that’ etc etc. We’ll be gasping for breath in 2026 but we’ll still have the well-heeled queuing and craving the latest SUV.

An atrocious radio interview…

The performance this morning at 08:45 of Amol Rajan was atrocious, I used to enjoy him on the Media Show but his personal qualities are proving insufficient to be fronting early morning news on bbc r4.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amol_Rajan

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qj9z

Amol Rajan was interviewing Steve Barclay and made a complete mess of it, I would hope his bosses tackle this horrible treatment of Steve Barclay; this is a new low, is not acceptable. In my opinion Steve Barclay was quite in his rights to abandon and walk away from this horribly ‘loaded’ treatment. Steve stuck it out much to his credit.

I think there needs to be an inquiry and there needs to be an apology from Amol and from the bbc for this.

Amol needs to realise this is not a gladatorial engagement, you don’t pick up points for destroying your ‘enemy’ and you certainly must not promote your own emotive bent when the format is principally to deliver current news in an unbiased intelligent manner and in this case allow the interviewee impart of their best. This is not the place for a tabloid shock treatment.

In my opinion the UK sort of ad hoc muddled through with covid, in all fairness we were completely in the dark and anything like ‘lockdown’ was at first contemplation a real shock to contemplate and seemingly alien to anything any of us had experienced. We knew there would be casualties, this is sad and lamentable, but such is life (and death) and covid. Death I am afraid stalks the Earth and will take the vulnerable.

I see now we have a media bandwagon of stirring up passions with ‘accusations’ of groupthink and the leapfrogging to new insights all by means of hindsight. Of course hindsight will temper and modify our opinions, how else can this be, it will provide ammunition for critics but as stated already at the time in my opinion we mostly did the best we could in those uncharted waters. Better then than the USA under fairground trickster trump and the extraordinarily timid Dr Fauci and seemingly so-disengaged Deborah Birx; trump we may remember dumped the Dept for dealing with pandemics the first week he entered Office; or at least dumped by those pulling the strings, I doubt trump would ever have an opinion of anything other than his own self.

If learning from the past is so much in vogue among pundits then how was it of the foot and mouth crisis of twenty years ago the guidelines and basically the manual of operations learnt and devised from the previous foot and mouth thirty five years earlier by the Duke of Northumberland was totally ignored! Important lessons and methods such as burial on site being totally ignored. That particular Duke was very highly regarded, I doubt anyone knew more of husbandry and correct farming practices.

Personally with unfolding covid it jarred on me that mass event gatherings were allowed to continue for so long.

Likewise it seems to me inconceivable that some care workers were allowed to continue WITHOUT the covid jabs.

Dido Harding and the Track and Trace I think needs some greater scrutiny, the costs were bizarrely high yet a trifling twenty quid a week to the poor the Government seems ‘so important’ and needs to be cut in such a cruel, petty short sighted way; the longterm cost I’m sure will be far higher than any twenty quid.

Here we are with this mornings reaction … https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-58880971

(However, jarring to see Cummins with his worn out violin being given a soap box to whine from, yet again).

You might not like this …

But I have twice previously encountered high achieving African males that have been propelled to a high functioning role and have found them strangely obstructive, intransigent and totally unable to realise there is a crisis to be addressed. Here today I am thinking of Kwasi Kwarteng.

I’m not sure a straightforward re-wilding is the answer.

You’ll not get many if any people that work in the countryside to agree with re-wilding. Its another one of those subjects turned into something emotive, something that its no longer so easy to get the activists to embrace the full story. I wonder if the web has aided tribalism? …. of course it has.

A myriad of life can exist in a multi-purpose landscape, goodness how difficult it would be to fight ones way through sheep walk turned to hawthorn scrub. Nor do I want to have my progress straight-jacketed into pre-cut walks and pathways. Nature and all its little participants is very clever, theres a habitat for just about everybody, barring of course the hopeful additions that we heard Chris mention yesterday, Lynx, goodness what else and oh yes he tells us bears and wolves! Oh dear, how silly. I always think it a bit corny when an army of kids are enrolled to march upon The Palace!

In a practical real-life situation it has been the fifty years of excessive drainage on upland areas that to my mind has caused great harm, eradicating the upland sponge that minimises flooding. Likewise for decades farmers were paid to eradicate old hedges. How silly and blind!

Another point that I’ve never heard anyone speak of is the universal municipal spraying at any feature of grassed pathways, ie signposts, lampposts, fencing, kerb edges, all of these are microhabitats for tiny things which in turn would be a source of food. I’m talking about the nooks and crannies that have been rendered useless, not neccessarilly a complete re-wilding as per recent experiments. Here of course I am assuming the insect count is down compared with unsprayed, I must be vigilant here, as a great byword of mine is ‘don’t assume’, which is probably the most basic and elementary understanding in any rational and scientific treatment of any subject or situation.

Good quality front gardens are in great decline, concrete slabs, block paving and gravel as standing for cars has eliminated I guess a full half of what might have been a convenient hop off point and source of food for garden birds. A decent garden much like the washing line is becoming a rare thing. Even rarer is the ability to allow leaf litter to remain, to be adding an extremely beneficial upper organic layer that returns soil to what it should be, it was never intended to be naked.

I wonder to what extent ‘nature’ is taught in schools, I know in my early 1970’s UK Secondary School it was poorly dealt with. I could do a far better job myself. If art, practical handicraft (ie wood and metalwork) have been near eradicated and music in great decline at state schools then what of nature study?

My usual hobbyhorse of diatoms is a no-fail way to get kids interested.

My clothes pegs are of bamboo…

Sounds like an excellent cryptic password for two spies meeting but in fact its the reality of a new pack of pegs for my washing line. They are of bamboo, good pegs too, stronger more longer lasting than the previous softwood always pinging apart junk. A joy to use actually.

So there it is, bamboo has infiltrated into what would be a mundane and seemingly simple article for use in an English garden, something initially we think parochial but in fact universal, what country on Earth could function without clothes pegs! I wish the manufacturer well in their effort, a good at a reasonable price product, not plastic either, the plastic pegs as they remain outside 365 eventually degrade and snap.

If only more households were so keen on outdoor drying and the clothes line as I am, the wind is free, it does a good job at drying my laundry, sometimes maybe the indoor (wait for it …) bamboo pole strung up in my kitchen is needed in the winter months to help things along; people regard me as a man always with fresh pressed shirts, never a mess.

I do not have a functioning washing machine, the near never ending spin cycle irritated me so once the m/c itself failed to work it was a blessed relief. I enjoy laundry by hand, it was all our forbears had and so its good enough for me. I also think of carbon footprint. Looking around this small estate where I live neither immediate neighbour puts anything out on the line, I wonder if many do this at all? Thinking of our forebears, surely its obvious a Biblical lifestyle would have solved all this planets problems, but I would think too late now for what ever changes we can make.

postscript … COP26 Glasgow coming up, well intentioned but I fear just a ‘talking shop’ and platitudes and mission statements will abound but the nett effect I fear … ‘not much’.

How many ton of carbon will it take to mount, hold and assemble all the likely bods from around the globe for this climate love-fest?

Tax evasion.

Funny how I can be so prescient, as with the newly revealed ‘Pandora Papers’ the point I have made for years is at last driven home, to how tax evasion has even drivelled down to the little man, as my neighbour waddled up to me to brag of his near nil contribution on £50k to this countrys performance… so many, so many bust a gut and or hire the trickiest and cleverest accountants to make their tax contribution dwindle to near microscopic proportions.

Money … what a strange God to choose.

Boris, lorries and food…

If Boris cannot match drivers to the necessary requirements of an adequate operating capacity for this countrys food needs then what the heck is he doing managing this country?

Can he be trusted or can he even comprehend the necessary fine detail and sophistication of fiscal policy, the control of money supply and inflation, of effective financial management, of international relations, ie complicated stuff ad infinitum etc etc all bound up with understanding nomenclature and terms that I cannot comprehend? The last few days we have had daily re-runs of ‘crisis what crisis’ when in fact the first requirement to solving anything is to realising there actually IS a problem.

Increasingly when I see and hear Boris I cannot help but recall some bumbling inept middle or higher rank military man.

The highly toxic and disadvantageous mix of Brexit and shunning of all European hired hands is an absolute recipe for disaster but yes we certainly walked into it eyes wide open. Farage and any other brexiteer you can think of have certainly landed us into a complete mess, setting the clock back fifty years.

The Tories talk of ‘levelling up’ but as every day ticks by there is nothing other than an increasing inequality, a blind halfwit would surely be able to ascertain of this. A case in point has been the withdrawl of the £20 regular covid payment, being withdrawn we are told ‘to save money’ but this so-called reason is complete nonsense, the hardship, anxiety and fear engendered by this measly withdrawl of an assistance payment will result in far more than any twenty quid per person in future spending to help the poor and needy. Yet it is only now that furlough payments are to cease, an expense that could have stopped even months ago. A bit of a joke considering present day mobility, there must be many people back to working full time and pocketing the furlough money. Another state sponsored scam…..

To compound Tory stupidity as well as announcing stopping the £20 covid payment Boris and team announce ‘new measures’ to help the poor ie another form of payment to look for. Surely if all is ticking over why the heck introduce yet another with set of hurdles with all the attendant stress and admin costs of starting all over again from scratch! Loony is the only term for Boris & Co. Madness. All of this when we are staring into the prospect of inflation of the likes we have never seen for many decades even for the simplest things as food and heating.

Why is practical wisdom and the foresight of experience so unfashionable?

Another quite blind and stupid idea from Boris and his team of which Rishi Sunak the Chancellor seems adamantly keen are the cuts in Overseas Aid, this again is madness. Imagine in your mind projects and programmes that would be abandoned, food, medicine, healthcare, schools, assistance to self sufficiency, birth control, education, equal rights …. all scuppered by the ‘levelling up’ Tories. I’m sure China would be delighted to step-in, if we in the West are so stupid then good luck to them. Very much a case of out of sight out of mind with Boris and the team I think, this could in fact suit them admirably as a campaign slogan.

If I were in charge the first thing I would do is hunt down those big corporations that are so skilfull at tax evasion, the Amazons that are destroying the multivarious web of stockist to end user network that has existed for a long time, their relentless market capture.

Additionally here in the UK we have an epidemic of individuals operating for tax purposes as Limited Companies, this I think is as obscene as any tax avoidance by say Amazon. Already this typical individual IR35 is on ‘big money’ and somehow pleads themselves as a special case somehow not needing to contribute as all the rest of us…. quite sickening. Yet still expect a legal system, Police, education, healthcare whenever it suits them! IR35 hypocrites I think is the correct term.

The worst PM in a long time …

We have walked eyes wide open into one self inflicted disaster after another, not only exiting Europe but the double whammy of hindering or stopping free exchange of workers. Its usual in life when huge (a Boris word if ever …. ) changes are implemented to taper and slide as much as possible, to ease the pain. After all, this is not wartime, we should strive to allow light and clarity and an exchange of good will to predominate in our lives. It was not a secret that European drivers, European fruit and produce pickers and European process workers were fundamental to the UK food and distribution industry. The big joke has been that a ballerina is permitted to work in the UK from Europe (yet live performance has barely started theres no real need for them surely… ) but that drivers, pickers, process workers are not!

The latest news is that some trivial amount at 10k people are allowed in short-term only until Christmas Eve …. a most stupid cut-off date imaginable as we know fine well they will want to travel to be back with their families!

Question: wheres the brains in this UK Government?

Another big self inflicted disaster and for decades has been the often pointless tweaking at state school education and curriculum. many kids are barely literate, they cannot sketch or explain themselves or grasp a sense of community or of how to living inclusively.

In Cabinet and at the helm we are supposed to have the best and brightest, this not now looking to be the case. Why do we seem to be so keen on rich Asians to to take up as many posts as possible, these rich people cannot understand the blind sightedness and cruelty of stopping a twenty quid note to the poor and the needy; or of the fear and uncertainty all compounded by the travails of covid. I cannot be impressed by Rishi Sumac, nor Priti Patel, the latter making it a prisonable offence to enter the UK. We also live in a more unfair society as from I think Thatcher onward the Local Authority house building programme pretty well dried up, very soon people were dependant on private landlords, the worst possible situation.

Heres the bombshell, its my opinion theres too many people on the planet, if we could halve the population then we might be holding each other in better regard, more able to survive on the food this limited and compromised earth can supply. People knock the Chinese but for most of the twentieth century they proceeded around on bicycles and consumed little…. and had a one child policy. Surely these are things we should all aim for, but hubris, ambition, consumerism will undo any fine objectives.

And we are all of one species, this encroaching Nationalism from any part of the world is unethical, immoral, free exchange of peoples surely is how humanity needs to proceed.

This is NOT levelling up…

The silly huff-puff nonsense administration of Boris Johnson in his onward and downward insistence of removing the twenty quid boost for people on benefits here on the UK is stingy in the extreme, Dickensian and mean to excess. It deserves to be on a list of queerly named characters that by their mere pronounciation spell ‘hard times’.

So who are these people in Cabinet that so sincerely appreciate the day to day and hour to hour existence of the poor, I mean ‘the poor folk at the bottom’ that can only hope at best to scrape along, or to survive for another twenty four hours but know fine well they imbibe nothing of any decent nuitrition and overall are ‘going down’. No bloody wonder we have beggars in our cities, what else are they supposed to do !

Lets look at a few of these considerate and understanding folk, with life experience to stand them in good stead; in no particular order …

Boris Johnson … https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Johnson

Nadhim Zahawi … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadhim_Zahawi

I’m choosing at random, I applaud their achievements and opportunities in education, but I still question their ability to realise the nerve-frying insult to stop £20 a week. The above are all very wealthy, possessing considerable capital, they have confidence, unfazed by what tomorrow may throw at them. Even the less advantaged are drunk on power, witness Prit Patel, callous indeed and of such modest beginnings.

Chemtrails northern England.

We had them yesterday through daytime overhead and in the evening real big ones extending a full forty five degrees over on the western horizon say above central and western part of northern England ie chemtrails in Cumbria. This at a guess makes the visible portion from my viewpoint sixty to eighty miles away and observed length same. My self-invented DQA Reporting System I rate as DQA 8-3-3; in other words 80% duration for most of the day, quantity 30% and affect ditto.

This morning for north Tyneside / Northumberland I wake up to again, obvious chemtrail. with the resultant haze by 08:45 I rate at DQA 10-3-4, firstly rated 10/10 because they were present all of the hours of daylight and note the latter figure, the ‘affect’ more problematic. A problem because I do not want or like my skies messed around with!

From the top of my head points to note with chemtrail …

  • chemtrails linger, broaden out and create a hazed, whitened or grey sky, and can affect the lower cloud forming layers.
  • chemtrails are composed of substances not good for public health, not good for bees, insects etc.
  • chemtrail build-up leads to an ‘altered sky’ in various forms, heavy grey dense ‘reaction clouds (my term) ‘ at its so far observed ‘worst’.
  • often chemtrails are deposited by aircraft unobservable on say https://www.flightradar24.com/
  • its v difficult / impossible to find high definition weather radar to reveal chemtrail, without doubt Meteorologists must have been required to sign The Official Secrets Act, otherwise they would be screaming about it.
  • its also v difficult to get NASA Worldview to capture a good proportion of chemtrail activity, my guess it only pick or reveals say 20-30%.
  • chemtrail leads to a build up of nano-particle aluminium that has probably lead to food chain collapse in once bountiful rivers, to autism, possibly dementia, and I’m sure the voracity of record levels of wildfires. Remember, fine particle aluminium can weld solid steel rails to form jointless welded railway line, ie thermite and its also an explosive for demolition; fine particle aluminium is nasty stuff …

Most folk will look out the window after breakfast to see ‘another hazy day’ and give the matter no further thought, because of course they didn’t see the horizon to horizon widening chemtrail streak across their sky earlier that morning at 0630, nor were able or bothered to view the distant horizon at sunset; they don’t connect, they don’t to any great extent ‘think’.

If only we could to assemble a number of observers across the UK, and utilise lorry drivers to take note each sunrise whats up there in the sky. My own viewpoint is merely to observe and document, admittedly only as far as my life and work permit me.

Lets have a quick tootle around on NASA Worldview for yesterday 16th Sept 2021 …

I was steam-rollered, jackbooted and literally forced into …

… having to accept against my will a ‘condensing boiler‘ most certainly against my wishes and remember its me that foots the bill (for in this case something i did not want) ie a replacement central heating boiler of the newer ‘condensing type’. This would be say eight years ago and cost me £1,700 GBP.

When the young man left after totting up I’m guessing £700 for ten hours labour (which is more than double any hourly rate I have ever charged never mind pocketed as a wage, in fact three times the amount on invoicable monies alone) …. I was left with gaping holes to fill and particularly with no immersion heater for instant hot water and the facility to air our clothing etc in the aptly named ‘airing cupboard on the upstairs bedroom level! Its particularly jarring to me we lost the immersion heater upstairs.

In winter it kept upstairs warm too, taking the edge off the cold. maybe indicating an inefficiency, but appreciated and of course now lost.

Point of this post and something that i only realised yesterday is that the super-duper pile of crap called the condensing boiler is in fact now seeming itself as out of date and backward when with the modern push to eliminating gas fired boilers now elevates the long uninstalled immersion heater I reckon as looking so much more attractive (its electric not the now shamed gas) and attractive to the ‘powers that be’ the authorities and the bright bunnies running around oh so desperate to install the latest. I wish them well in their Spanish villas and three car families and unfettered consumerism fuelled by decades of insisting on the installation of gas fired condensing boilers at very juicy hourly rates, certainly not a lifestyle of mine. In actual fact i hope they fall flat on their face and i look forward to once again having an immersion heater in the airing cupboard.

Everything in boxes and plastic bags ie food.

I have the luxury of wanting to cook meals from scratch and the time too; but also I can understand many peoples need for convenience. However on a recent supermarket visit for a few seconds I just stood there and realised all around me everything is in boxes or plastic packaging, single use items that leave behind an absurd trail of litter and garbage merely to sate a few mouthfuls or a quick drink; this is starting to jarr with me now.

When sort of defocusing I could see avenue upon avenue of ‘stuff’ that in actual fact was not a great quantity or tonnage of nuitrition lets say but puffed out in its packaging occupying a far greater space than the contents themselves necessitated. I’d hazard great effort taken in the look of the thing as designed, as if this was paramount, certainly it must be, its sole purpose is to be chosen from among many other things, from among a wall of boxes and packets.

I realise I probably buy considerably less pre-packaged or processed food than most folk, in fact near none at all, merely I need a portion of meat and the bulk of any of my meals will be vegetables, I seldom have waste and at all occasions I clean my plate and as if a little boy I often lick the plate too … its so delicious!

I am low gluten, near zero dairy and low salt, the latter is no problem as my Indian herbs and spices do all I want.

I also consciously cook meals that utilise minimum carbon, a twenty minute meal prep on low gas for my ‘psuedo-stir-fry’ creations, for instance can be ….

good quality ext v olive oil flavoured with level tsp ‘punchpooran’ Bangladeshi seed mix, also fresh ground black pepper, no salt needed and where possible fresh garlic.

cubes of day old boiled potato (greater flavour).

fresh boiled turnip cubed (doesn’t keep)

one diced spring onion.

thin sliced leek.

*at this point we can go ‘Indian’, ie half a jar of ready made sauce,

or Chinese stir fry, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, noodles and sweet n sour sauce in wait for it … a packet!

or seafood pilaf, smoked haddock, mussels, chicken stock and white wine,

or maybe a little curry powder and just more vegetables ie broccoli and sweetcorn.

Sometimes a dash of Lee and Perrins can help and also a tiny drizzle of Canadian maple syrup where appropriate; for instance with my usual lunchtime steak mince casserole I accompany with half a tin of spinach, yesterdays pre-cooked potatos (whole) warmed up with the casserole in the benchtop Melissa and say tinned carrots or sweetcorn cooked with nigella seed and dillweed, finishing with tiny drizzle of Can m syrup before serving. Fast cooked broccolli is also fast becoming another favourite.

Precooked chicken can generally be added, I mostly do this, I bring my M purchased cooked chicken and it gets another 30 mins at 220c to dry it out and get the meat itself to a more palatable product, all in my tiny Melissa bench top oven, I get five meals out of this (no fridge). Oregano and black pepper helping things along.

I must now stop typing meal info … cooking fascinates me!

Interestingly I have no refrigeration, the two door remains of such an item is a useful storage box only.

Another side track can be to thin slice sweet potato and gently stir fry in cumin and a little ajiwan seed. but that leads on to other tricks and meals of mine, the above is my general do-all near daily procedure.

I don’t think the penny has dropped re long durations of oven cooking, a recent emergency purchase of a ready made lasagne necessitates a 40min cooking time each mealtime, high fat, high salt and the cooking time make it hard for me ever to buy that again, merely tiredness and lack of time pushed me to it, I confess. But during the 40min if i hadn’t had so much leg pain this time period would have enabled me to make a better quality replacement, at less cost too.

People knock China for pollution etc but isn’t that the country where for most of the twentieth century the bicycle was near universal and all meals cooked quickly!

To be honest there was nothing on those supermarket shelves that I wanted, endless variations of cookies and nibbles and ‘non-meal stuff’ that I have absolutely no requirement. I’d even say getting good bread is not easy, no way will I contemplate the ‘from frozen’ junk (generally small chiabata) that is presented so prominently before us at that chain of supermarkets name beginning with M. They have an instore bakery, so why the frozen, theres no valid excuse, a sales disaster i reckon.

The store itself is badly managed nowadays, more accurate to possibly say the chain of stores, its known as a food purveyor (name begins with M) but now we see newly introduced avenues of clothing, also an avenue devoted to bottled water and fizzy cola that interestingly gets little footfall, its near always devoid of shoppers. In retail the the target is to maximise £ return per square foot, I think in any analysis their ‘improvements and changes’ these last couple of years must be disastrous. I think what this town needs as most towns do is small family businesses with multi-generational skill and a hard work ethic, lets say an Italian ethos, or middle eastern or whatever.

This rant on my distrust of ‘food in boxes’ stems from some youtubes a few days ago where the major fast food outlets are infiltrating third world countries and pitching product way higher in fat and salt that would ever be allowed in their developed western operations. It saddened me greatly for instance to see Macdonalds, Domino Pizza etc pushing their horrible and grossly unattractive retail style in India, a country with a huge array of streetside food possibilities. How jarring, how brash and incongruous and of course … all in little boxes!

How i distrust ‘the little box’!

Looking at chemtrails on NASA Worldview…

This is merely my own hypothesis of course, these lines in the sky carry labels neither up in the sky nor when we find them on NASA Worldview. The latter is no way conclusive, my guesstimate is its only a fifth of probably happens in reality; its merely that Worldview is a snapshot of a certain time of day, my guess is late morning towards noon local and … its all I’ve got!

Looking back a few days as part of my intermittent chemtrail diary theres certainly solid information we can set down here. Incidentally here in north east England yesterday 6th September mid evening at sunset we had a huge criss-cross chemtrail practically overhead and the initial northern chemtrail as it approached was quite horrific in its proportions, full blast and lots of it, perspective and viewpoint of course adding to the effect. No other human being apparently latches on to what is plainly visible and this judging from the near zero reaction my chemtrail blogging inspires.

Who are you on the web?

I know folk that elaborate and near fantasise whilst i have to stand there in all amicability listening to their preposterous stories, previous roles in employment, outlandish car insurance claims, bogus university courses and general misinformation.

So to what extent do these bright bunnies fantasise online? Who do they align themselves with? What is real if anything? And what image do they wish to project?

If all they indulge in is a form of role play on sites thankfully I’ll never click then so what, thank goodness I’m bright and quick enough not to get mired down in such nonsense, neither do I have such a great need to belong nor to appear anything other than what I actually am.

But there are ‘serious actors’ to use an irritating and trendy expression, we had the predictable story this morning on bbc radio 4 news of surprise surprise the Russians with thousands of bogus accounts have been planting masses of phoney material onto discussion pages of various websites, masquerading as concerned comment from US citizens but just wishing to skew what should be real opinion; I suppose Ivan wanting to demonstrate the degeneracy of the west and our values are failing. All comes back to the useful ‘nonsense vehicle’ trump and how Ivan hitched a free ride culminating in the dreadful scenes of Jan 6th. Another instance of the web gaining too great a hold over what we read, what hopefully we evaluate and spit out again.

Its reckoned …

From a news article recently that teenagers have the mental upset equivalent to low level mental patients of the 1950’s. I wonder to what extent this is true?

It certainly cannot be a good thing to be feeding from a screen ever readily presenting what we crave, or the bombardment of colour graphics and endless ‘information’ and activity, its all intentionally designed to keep you hooked, to crave more. These things are unwholesome, they are not of human type.

The term ‘social’ media is mostly a bit of a joke, scraps and snippets of nonsense traded and ‘liked’ and pinged in circles of equal nonsense. Theres not much reality for many, no practical work, no actual building of knowledge or skill other than being able to text quickly. Goodness knows how this has diminished attention span and halted many or most from involvement in the world around them, they build create nothing.

What is intelligent behaviour? Certainly its not often to be seen when holding a mobile device, theres no chance whatsoever of hearing or reading the words of wisdom gained by previous generations, kids are held in a never ending present moment. Its my personal trick sans smart phone for instance each dreaded ‘Bank Holiday’ to choose a topic that interests me, the last one a few day ago was ‘the Gothic vault rib’ and wow I learnt a lot even from just a few ten minute sessions dipping into a couple of books here that include that subject, its called ‘on paper’.

Our possible skills and abilities are being trivialised, cast to the wind by this perpetual need by so many to be ‘connected’. Clever kids and those from more enlightened lets say educated households know fine well in their educational journey (lets say to a professional career) that the smart phone needs definitely to be turned off. Therefore from this statement we can say that society is more than ever being stratified into the educated and the uneducated, those that can reach out of the bubble and those stuck in it. Or could we say those hooked to the bloody thing separate from those somehow still able to build something in time and space not needing to be plugged in and recharged. This is tragic. I’m sure we are discarding human development skills (ie hand, brain, soul) and a myriad of social interconnections. And it also proves that in many ways the web, the smart phone is actually the denigrator and potential enemy of the ordinary person. Perhaps in the coming decades ignoring climate catastrophe of course we would see the emergence of a definite underclass, what used to be called the workers; oh dear ripe for fascist thinking.

People have their appetite ‘to belong’ satisfied by joining groups of like minded folk, witness Jan 6th and the stupidity and barbarism of storming The Capitol. No wonder quite sadly you add them to ‘your feed’ …. feeding off such moronic nonsense is indeed what is happening and results in huge assemblies of hot-heads from far and wide.

I personally have never much got anywhere online for my social life, maybe a couple of times in a decade but I would now never give the effort to find them in the first place by digital means, but give me real world one-to-one and I can engage a person, bring them out of themselves and am often quite amazed at the quality of interaction.

What the web (apart from reasonable better quality news sites) cannot do is offer a balanced view, a more open debate. Where people after their visit are a little more enlightened than when they arrived a few minutes ago. Closed groups do indeed shut out light and air, they breath their own stench so to speak. Things that should be much improved or improving such as minority rights, womens rights, free movement of immigrants and a safe haven extended, education for the poor, a broader more interesting education offering possibilities are all being throttled and cast back to previous generations, the infamous Father Coglan would have wholeheartedly embraced the web, ie a spewer of hate.

By means of the web idiosyncratic individuals can be manipulated and their unsound, illogical or cruel and uncharitable views and opinions enabled and amplified so as to carry too much importance, importance beyond any merit of their arguament. We used to have the cornerstone of good manners, considerate behaviour when meeting people face to face, a desire to fit in society and help the general good. But its obvious web engines, sites and algorithms or whatever prefer to promote vitriol and upset in many cases; they want you to keep clicking ever yet more material. The web can destroy any sense of neighbourhood, yes the local church group can link up and natter among themselves but i reckon for every one of them there will be fifty more unsavoury web users that feel empowered by the echo chamber they visit online.

I don’t think theres anything we can do other than structure kids lives as much as possible to turn the bloody thing off and try to set a good example, thats of course if you can get them to drag their eyes away from the screen in the first place. I’ve always reckoned far better to have anything web in black and white only!

Users are being manipulated on two levels most certainly, firstly to keep attention to the device, to receive or encounter more new product and its advertising and its link take-up but secondly this also leaves whole societies, nations and shell we say special interest groups wide open to nefarious manipulation, witness the rise of 1930’s bigotry of trump and the strengthening of other unhealthy intolerant movements. We are now reaping the results of ‘immediate connection’ for like minded individuals. I don’t think human nature possesses sufficient magnaminity to outride this potentially disastrous consequence.

Interestingly the last mobile phone I encountered was that of my now deceased wife, it was say year 2000, I’m up in the countryside and i couldn’t operate it, and being the placid laid back considerate person that i am, I destroyed it under my boot, it could no longer humiliate me. Sod technology I say, its making fools of all of us.

In many ways we are the poorer for having the web.

I have encyclopedias, I have books, I am not a formally educated man and make no pretence to be of such, but I’m not stupid either and things must be bad when I can answer usually quicker than the contestants many of the questions on University Challenge!

‘ol Woodenhead …

I’m sorry to be saying this, yet I’m sure many millions of people are saying this also but recalling Bidens disastrous speech a couple of weeks ago on insisting to honour trumps ‘arrangement’ to back out of Afghanistan and specifically stating he did not want any more US service personnel to lose life (ie last occurred three years ago) … this will as I’ve stated already go down in infamy, it will echo for a century or more as totally a stupid move, as totally woodenheaded; of course assuming as if we were to be an extant species for so long a time period in the years ahead.

Lets face it, so much of what trump pushed for and was mostly unseen from general view for example to promote his ‘trash-crackpot-take’ on any or all situations ie environment, equal rights, healthcare, etc etc ….. we can see there can not have been anything trump couldn’t keep his grubby hands away from; yet I’m assuming the Biden administration has over-turned a great deal of the trumpian destruction, so why and so why has Biden pressed ahead with the insane withdrawal from Afghanistan?

The great obstacle appears to be in it not being easy to over-turn the trumpian envoys disastrous ‘Art of the Deal’ secret meeting/s with the Taliban which means I’m assuming Biden has to honour the pot of crap negotiated by an imbecile called trump or more likely his whoever representative, which I increasingly wonder was greenhorn Jared, but of course it was whoever flew out there ‘and did the business’. Now on bbc radio news yesterday and today we hear as how little or nothing was extracted for Western advantage but it was all a complete giveaway to the Taliban!! I’m surprised they didn’t give ’em all goodie bags stuffed with ammunition and codes and cyphers and other such advantages.

But Biden is not trump, or hopefully should not be.

So could we assume mayhem and future decades of turmoil in the Middle East exist now because of a hardly educated over advantaged low IQ son of a crook called Jared? This indeed has the hallmark of trumpian callous unthinking ineptitude and shallow gloss, wrong man for the wrong job, but looks okay for the camera.

The Taliban got it all, the West retained nothing. This is blasphemous in its stupidity, an influencing and intelligence platform cast to the wind.

Why are our so-called leaders so poor?

So who is the greater woodenhead here below, one obviously made of wood and another, taking an utterly woodenheaded direction …

Chemtrails north east England.

Chemtrail diary Sat 28th August 2021.

As with yesterday its been a chemtrail day, not so much in the morning but certainly chemtrail is here and certainly more noticeable early and mid evening. I didn’t take photographs as its a common occurrence, for today my DQA reporting system as observed in the sky above from north east England is DQA 7-3-4

Early evening provided very obvious criss-cross chemtrail patterns. These are definitely not condensation trail.

NASA Worldview as usual only provides a slim chance of catching anything, however for today it has captured chemtrail activity over Scotland ie https://go.nasa.gov/2WB5skj

A Tale of two Countries.

Its staggering that a mere twenty quid is now being taken away, when seemingly half the country have converted themselves to ‘limited company’ and openly brag how little tax they pay. If that is the case they do not deserve the fruits of tax contribution ie hospitals, medical care, the legal system, etc.

I’m proud of the tax I pay, its a measure of my success. Pity Google and Amazon didn’t feel the same. Another loophole is the downright fiddle of the Chinese selling on ebay from a UK despatch point, charging VAT but as with a couple of duff recent purchases I’m having to send the returned item to China. This stinks! Means another ten or thirty quid down the drain.

Its hard to fathom at the Exchequer the Chancellor wandering around demanding the supplementary twenty quid is abolished. How mean and petty in the extreme, the poorer we are the more valuable a twenty quid note becomes. After covid, isolation, struggling, loss possibly of friends or loved ones the last thing the poor need is a kick in the teeth.

I personally for forty years have been of ‘sole trader status’ and am quite happy to pay my tax. Luckily in later life I am not poor, but in earlier decades the tax bill was always a burden, even when income was extremely modest. But one cuts ones cloth to suit ones purse and hence always muddled through. Now that I’m successful in later life in some ways I’m hardly interested, I do my best but the energy of early and middle life has gone, bereavement didn’t help either. I crave time to settle down with books, take notes, to learn, or to work in my garden but this life of mine hardly allows it. Cooking takes up time too, and all laundry by hand through choice, if it was good enough for my ancestors its good enough for me and anyway it really annoyed me the electric washer spent ages spinning laundry that I could as easily wring by hand and get onto the line in five minutes … job done!

For the poor and needy that withdrawl of £20 is tragic, contrast that with the horrendous expense of something like HS2 …a facility surely in these days of electronic communications is hardly needed, to hell with HS2 …. what we need is lorry drivers! Why with HS2 do they need to ‘save an hour’ on a journey … make me laugh please …. so what, the traveller can have a coffee n whatever once arrived? No-one in the arguament mentions anything of freight, we know it is all road bound. There is no valid arguament for HS2.

lines in the sky.

Chemtrail diary north east England. Third week August 2021.

Monday 23rd Aug ’21 yes lots of lines in the sky which i also call chemtrail. Obviously i have a life to lead but still able to view the sky a couple of dozen times a day. Started early and best examples ie most visible chemtrail activity was say early teatime here in the north east of England, the activity centred above Tyneside; this was very obvious chemtrail, generally trending E-W but some criss-crossed too. Using my DQA reporting system I rate as duration =9/10; quantity 3/10; affect 3/10 (an aluminized sky but no grey ‘reaction clouds’ as witnessed a couple of years ago, therefore DQA 9-3-3. Photo to follow, but strangely little to see on NASA Worldview whatever filter is applied. At the observed peak teatime chemtrail activity rated as DQA 9-6-4

Tuesday 24th Aug ’21 whoops, more chemtrail than yesterday, two thirds of the day to my eyes an obvious aluminized sky ie white fug, no reaction clouds. DQA 10-3-3. Again teatime is a better chance of seeing these lines in the sky, every ten minutes a huge long ‘across the sky’ high altitude chemtrail which haze and widen and add to the obscuration of what otherwise would be a blue sky. This is getting back to what I witnessed and recorded for two or three years already on this blog. Lets go look at NASA Worldview …

Wow …. NASA Worldview data still not available for UK, North Sea and all of Europe… I think I smell something fishy, its five hours late ie present time 7pm BST and normally available say 1:45 pm each day.

Probable chemtrail English Channel/ London … https://go.nasa.gov/3kmGq05

ditto chemtrail North Sea and Eastern Scotland … https://go.nasa.gov/2XV4D6d

At least here we get a semblance however slight of the many chemtrail seen for Tuesday, ie north east England https://go.nasa.gov/3mzM3L4 … angle your screen to get the best idea of this.

I could do a whole post on chemtrail over northern Adriatic … https://go.nasa.gov/3mtDb9V … thats funny, I’m sure there was more on other days.

footnote 1 … found this a few minutes ago, worth reading, we need light shed on this chemtrail problem. So much online content is flat one-dimensional ‘debunking’ for what when we look up into a chemtrail ruined sky is real, and when repeated hour by hour and day by day surely to goodness even the dimmest person should be wondering what is going on. An hour later a ‘successful’ trail hangs there and hazes according to wind drift, this is not justifiable as being ‘nothing’. It is ‘something’ and therefore deserves time and effort to find out more. Where chemtrails are common aluminium levels increase greatly.

Tectonic plates.

Another fun ingredient to add to the tally of global warming events and I’m assuming will rear its ugly head sooner or later, how else can it be, as explained below if the weight of ice disappears from Greenland than how else can the ground itself react but readjust its tectonic plate structure. Likewise subsea landslides are a real danger.

Not much seems forthcoming on this subject of tectonic plate readjustment / movement, maybe google is sometimes a hindrance than a boon? Or maybe articles pitched at the ‘layman’ aren’t so abundant? The achademic three year peer review system needs drastically to be shortened, we haven’t time.

Anyway, to read it and it is five minutes well spent. As always I hold self-education as vital, just like as in the olden days ….

https://qz.com/681239/global-warming-wont-just-change-the-weather-it-could-trigger-massive-earthquakes-and-volcanoes/

A couple of days ago we hear on bbc radio news that experts announce that the German and European floods could well be a sign of climate change. Wow, that is a serious under-reaction to ever increasing problems.

A petty grumble of mine but what really pips my noodle is cars especially diesel SUVs idling over in supermarket car parks whilst ‘the other half’ gets the shopping in ….. GRRRR !

Second grumble of the day is how lagging the IPCC are in all this, as if not wanting to upset anyone, they are supposed to be predicting the future and to motivate a worldwide response by scientists, engineers, governments, individuals etc. When a bomb was involved it was the Manhattan project, we need that seriousness of response multiple times over as well as vastly reducing our own personal carbon footprints, maybe its fruitless in actual reality but we cannot go down without a fight.

Aljazeera writes achingly sad re the famine in Madagascar, as when I read of the mass starvation during the Chinese Great Leap Forward and then the Cultural Revolution of people reduced to trying to eat scraps of leather or trying to scavenge nuts or berries that they know fine well is slowly killing them then we know the situation is bad, is irreversible for them. I think I shall be making my Christmas charity donations in the next few days. Interestingly a few years ago I learnt that in the Moslem world a working adult will contribute 1/40 of their income as charity contribution each year, I think a lot of us should work by that example and perhaps the tragedy of Yemen, Madagascar, refugees etc may find some relief from their plight.

Well done Mr Blair.

I only post and blog when it is something that matters to me. I don’t think i mentioned the name Obama once, because I thought the country was in good hands in those far off days.

I had hoped better than this from Biden, a great big whopping disappointment I’m afraid. Tony Blair is quite justified in the term ‘imbecilic’ as to the mad immoral and just plain nuts move to exit Afghanistan, throwing away a most useful platform to help encourage a positive view toward the West and our sense of democracy and equal rights, and of course its use for intelligence gathering. How utterly stupid, never mind in the manner that it has been done and the grief and fear it has so quickly engendered among most Afghanis.

Heres a well written apparaisal of Mr Blairs use of imbecilic… https://www.mail.com/int/news/uk/11053854-imbecilic-ex-uk-leader-tony-blair-slams-afghan-wit.html#.1272-stage-rightcolumn1-1

Tony Blair learnt hard lessons twenty years ago, its in his face. I have a lot of time for him and applaud his present day work. Heres the essay he wrote re ‘imbecilic’ from his own website …. https://institute.global/tony-blair/tony-blair-why-we-must-not-abandon-people-afghanistan-their-sakes-and-ours

I particularly applaud his focus on the absurdity of slogans, as to their shallowness and leading to a ‘non-thinking’ environment, to hook the easily led. I would think the 1930’s were full of slogans.

Thinking about Tesla …

I think we need be sceptical of Elon Musk, the electric truck for instance does not seem to ‘add up’ so to speak.

From the vid below we learn on US roads 36 ton gross is the max allowable vehicle weight when fully loaded.

For Tesla at 03:53 we are told truck without batteries = 16 ton; batteries = 17 ton, which also represents a lot of forthcoming disposal problems!

Therefore the crazy Tesla truck has a load carrying capacity of …. 3 ton! … which represents say a mere 9% of fully loaded weight as actual money-earning payload and remember after you have off-loaded say half of your ‘tiny cargo’ you are left with a 33 ton monster working to deliver say the remaining half of payload at 1-1/2 ton. This is a project gone wrong, but Elon can do this, I’m sure the paypal connection is delivering money literally by the ton. This is basically no better than the little self propelled vehicles I made as a kid out of Meccano and the Mamod steam engine, enough oomph to carry themselves forward but not much left over. So, beloved of people with huge egos and penchant for the big stage presentation its all B/S.

The vid tells us conventional truck load cap is around 19t as opposed to the electric Tesla truck at 3t.

I am always highly sceptical at the carbon cost of creating electric vehicles, I’m sure not as ‘green’ as they would have us believe.

As the vid commentary tells us at Tesla does not deliver the one figure that logistics companies need to know ie load capacity, see 02:00

What the hell did you think would happen?

Just listening to Diane Abbott a few seconds ago on bbc r4 ‘Any Questions’ and I’ve had to turn off.

At first shot at spouting forth Diane keeps it all very vague, in broad brushstrokes but at second pitch a few minutes later she states categorically that we we failed at nation building. This is incorrect.

In my opinion we succeeded at nation building with the western presence in Afghanistan; we certainly did, amply demonstrated by everyones dismay, fear and real horror at now being stuck (alone) with a Taliban master. I would think an entire half of the population ie female will be shaking at the loss of western freedoms (ie this is what is called nation building Diane). Also a great proportion of Afghan males will equally be horrified that now with Taliban masters ethnicity and regional and tribal origin will once again shape ones life/ or death. All these negative points were chipped away at and rendered paltry by twenty years of western nation building, Diane.

How is it words and views can become so deranged and inapplicable, I’m thinking of the wonky brain of Diane Abbott. She needs to work with texts, printed material and perhaps a writing course to gain the idea of inferences and real intended meaning from the written word… methinks so. Diane!

It looks that the trump administration (if ever a ‘trump administration’ could ever warrant such a term, I mean a bunch of opportunistic lackeys and self interested on-the-make fascists and petty fraudsters) …. did their utmost to speed the takeup of power by the Taliban, this is tantamount to aiding the enemy. This is so elementary as if a childrens flashcard session, but after all, this is how ‘Intelligence’ was indeed presented to trump, by childrens flashcards. Look again to Putin, trumps puppet master.

We’ve released a basket of vipers, what the hell did you think would happen?

Keeping on top of Afghanistan I assume seemed do-able, I assume also quite do-able for many years to come, certainly strategically immensely useful to us, and also useful to them, the ordinary people, we provided a looser more accepting society, western values generally diminish fear. Yet, the mere hint of retreat and the Taliban rush in at great speed. Question is, quite what did the trump administration tie down with the Taliban, what did their ‘secret negotiations’ contain?

Biden looks super-bad in all this; I’m so sad he has turned out to be quite useless and in fact a danger to world peace and strategic thinking. Its ironic the newly presented ‘gloss and spin’ from the Taliban is so like the gloss and spin that trump has used so much throughout his life ie saying one thing but actually doing another. I can see the influence of trump in this, exhorting the phoney tv and media image, merely a game of smoke and mirrors; media and tv to be ‘used’ and spoonfed whatever angle someone such as trump wished to world to see, this signals zero respect to the outer world, the viewers.

Checks and balances I wonder? Where was NATO? Likewise British Cabinet and Foreign Office appear woefully ineffectual, again, top-brass military, where were all the brains and experience in allowing any of this to happen? Afghanistan was an ideal place to gather Intel, a windfall to influence and propagate western values, now all thrown to the wind. We hear also today Saturday 21st that callers to bbc r4 ‘Any Questions’ are pleading for the Home Office, Foreign Office etc to get more joined up and realise how to fast-track applications and procedure. Maybe Dominic Cummings was correct in there needing to be a big shake-up.

Factual testimony today Saturday informs us the Taliban are as cruel as ever, again on bbc r4 ‘Any answers’ of the brother of a man that worked for the British, and therefore his brother a qualified surgeon had a hand cut off merely because the brother had worked for the Brits and following from this other family members have been murdered these last few days, murdered by the Taliban because of this Brit connection, as another caller told us, his life will be measured in hours, not days or weeks.

So we can see, the Taliban are using western style media to in fact bullshit the west, whilst meantime pursuing their unenlightened backward mindset; amputation, torture, murder.

trump did his best to denigrate and diminish NATO for his friend in the Kremlin, strange how Biden let this utterly catastrophic and easily avoided go through. Biden and the Americans can now never be trusted.

It is also cruel and mindless to set the final date for withdrawl as 9/11 … this should have been realised and avoided at all cost, it helps no-one.

I hope and pray we can insist the window for bringing back all those that helped western forces can be extended, maybe in exchange for aid and not sanction. But also ‘to mop up’ all those feared and cowering that cannot physically reach the airport nor have all the documents required.

I am keen to sponsor an Afghan family. I need now to find how to do this, I know what it is like to be without help, to stand alone, ignored.

I can see clearly now…

Lets shoot a line, let me use my imagination…

This whole thing has been pre-rehearsed, it is to a script, the bizarre spectacle of America sleep walking into the Afghanistan ‘withdrawl disaster’ is in fact in my opinion heavily scripted, hence Bidens stilted nonsensical Monday speech.

For instance when forever has a president genuinely troubled themselves at the loss of life in the course of duty? Pity he didn’t consider civilian lives, was it running at a ratio of ten to one? But this wouldn’t have been foremost until a few weeks ago, I’m assuming everything was ticking over nicely so to speak until then, in todays UK Parliament we are informed of no US military deaths in three years, can we say this tour is now a patsy? For sure from now on there will be much greater loss of life. Bidens thoughts and views on this hold no water. These things are viewed statistically by the top brass at home and its for sure far more people die of traffic accidents, but we never ban cars. Sorry to be caustic on this but this ‘stinks to high heaven’.

This cack-handed and supremely inept withdrawl perhaps results from the trump administration speaking to the Taliban in secret. A deal has been done and I reckon this could be the result of trump meeting with Putin in Helsinki for two hours a couple of years ago with no record of what was said, no minutes taken. The deal entails the Taliban being handed Afghanistan in exchange for them displaying a certain leniency and ‘enlightened thinking’.

In essence he has handed Afghanistan and the region to Putin, made the USA look stupid and created turmoil setting the scene for trouble in the future, no doubt all to the glee of Putin. I hesitate at using the term Russia because everything is Putin-centric, its the man, not the country. China will build economic aid but it will be Putin who exercises muscle; along with Pakistan wallowing in their unforseen luck.

Postscript:

Lets extend this speculative line of thought of mine a little further, it makes one wonder if the dreadful scenes of the Jan 6th storming of the Capitol were in fact a Russian manipulation? Thinking is allowed. Their intent on making western society and values look stupid certainly seems to be taking effect. After all, it is obvious for the trump four year White House tenure he was walking hand in hand with the Russians.

Airlifting so many people out of Kabul airport in such an uncertain, heart rending and last minute manner is a profound failure in planning, of local knowledge, of the practical business of getting things done. The UK Ambassador we hear from bbc r4 is still there along with volunteers from the Embassy doing their best to process and fastrack the airlift of all those likely to suffer at the hands of the Taliban. Meanwhile can we assume the western allies had already pulled the plug on their own military airbases, I assume the answer is yes. Also, we learn on bbc radio that this is ‘the fighting season’ when armed militias etc are most prominent, yet another blunder of Intelligence and planning. Theresa May had good right to be scathing, I would think behind the scenes more so too.

We must remember Obama set all this running ie the departure which in itself is a bad idea, after all, we have the soldiers, mostly the gear and so why not deploy them meaningfully, the US and the British still have many bases and soldiers around the world, curiously a huge contingent still in South Korea, so what possible arguament for Afghanistan withdrawl could hold water?

I do not think it was ever a ‘waste of time’ in any sense, western presence at each minute for twenty years was time well spent, imagine how bad it could have become without our being there. Its just a crying pity the end was so badly done.

If I were a Prime Minister or President …

I’m sure I would have not travelled the road of insanity as displayed by Johnson and Biden. And why? For what reasons have they done this? Both are now rock bottom in my estimation of suitability to hold Office. What is the matter with them, has some collective stupidity enveloped them and rendered them blind to the obvious?

As PM or Pres I would reach out to countries, help with all aspects of decent moral life, with education, scholarships, equal rights, infrastructure, the nitty gritty of electricity and sewage. As far as I could determine with western forces in Afghanistan everything was sort of ticking over okay, no doubt masses of experience had been gained and hence things could only get better, but to depart so haplessly and concede everything to the so-called dreaded taliban then what was it all for? Are there warmongers and industrialists at influence at Washington that would like nothing better than a total mess to emerge so that in time they will have a full scale war to enjoy again?

Biden has failed catastrophically, his speech of Monday will become infamous as fatuous nonsensical and scratching at any excuse to justify a withdrawl that a) would never work and b) created mayhem and danger for everyone left behind and thrown to the wind the opportunity to win hearts and minds, thrown to the wind all the good work done, the manhours and effort. A catastrophic failure of foreign initiative. Remember with Iraq a dozen tissue-thin basically non-existant reasons were endlessly peddled and promulgated so as to initiate huge military operations, when all along no legitimate reason existed (remember the guilty Colin Powell, Reece et al) but now with a hundred valid and concrete reasons to stay they have gone deaf and mute to any drop of good sense. Whats all behind this???

Macron too is displaying strange behaviour, I cannot converse in French therefore its all in translation but again ‘doesn’t read right’. Something smells a bit fishy.

Nature abhors a vacuum and I shudder to think how the next few months will play out as less than benign world players will enter Afghanistan to peddle influence and gain huge regions of new territory, to colour the map according to their own un-enlightened viewpoint, most likely allowing madmen and zealots to run riot as long as it is not too ‘in their face’. Whatever nations park themselves as the new friends of the taliban controlled Afghanistan they will be quite happy for a low-level illegal mayhem to percolate contentedly.

I’m thinking of the Chinese here, their treatment of minorities and Uyghers will be forever a black mark on their so-called modernisation. But realise when the Chinese persecute they are actually erasing the presence of people that have lived and worked in specific regions for an awfully long time; those people surely have every right to go about unhindered in their daily lives, not to be hounded and persecuted and basically wiped out by some invisible unaccountable beauracratic machine in Beijing. China feeds its population total media junk, have a look at their online media content, endless junk as if desperate to elevate everyone to an in the present mode of life and hundreds of years of quiet living are now looked down upon and seemingly to be eradicated, just as with hutongs, all this sounds so very Orwellian.

I cried on Monday when I heard the radio news of people hanging onto an aircraft at takeoff, martyrs indeed.

I can hear the breying of donkeys….

I use the term in its most derogatory sense, thinking of the numskull British Generals of the First World War, ie Genl French or Hague etc all notorious and never forgiven.

We live in an age of near endless fingertip access to information yet the deeper human qualities of insight, reason and good sense seem as far away as ever. Boris Johnson will go down as one of the most inept Prime Ministers the UK has ever seen, to my mind he makes Chamberlain or Anthony Eden look like a beacon of good judgement and insight. Likewise Biden in my judgement has slid to rock bottom. Oh dear I hoped far better than this.

Their dis-service to the country and people of Afghanistan is criminal, so lacking in appreciation of what is the real world. The USA we know can be so ill-judged in its dealings with other countries, it never seems to throw its brightest and best to foreign policy.

Witness the USA invasion of Iraq on little better than imagined aerial pics of ‘factories’ and compounds that when tested amounted to nothing, but by jingo they were adamant to ‘do the right thing (ie all imagined) to invade and to occupy.

But now we are dealing with reality, with human safety, emotion and well being; seemingly quantities right off the Biden and Johnson radar.

This will have seen by the world most likely already, but for the sake of completeness I cannot omit: earlier today when I heard the news of people clinging to a plane on take off I was in tears for their fear and desperation. I think we all need to dig into our pockets and help those less fortunate.

My heart crys for what I see …

Siberian fires and carbon particles.

The title says it all, just about the last thing we need is the accumulation of carbon particles on Arctic ice with its increased absorption and hence melting all the quicker, as goes for a myriad of other interconnected feedback loops ie impending methane in its three forms, permafrost thawing, jet stream alteration (now very much in change) and Greenland ice loss, the demise of algae and plankton, bees and insects in decline, none of those things we need right now.

We have upset this chemistry set called planet Earth with its fag paper thin inhabitable zone as if a one thou cigarette paper clinging to a child eight inch diameter football as demonstrated by simple arithmetic.

Climate change, ice loss, the future.

Its not very well put actually, Prof Peter Wadhams does okay in his own style but the other two particularly Mark seem not too good with words, I’d have expected greater eloquence, must be hell to get a lecture from them, or maybe I should have been a lecturer myself.

Good to hear criticism of the IPCC, they have a powerful voice and grip on humankinds response to this climate catastrophe and impending mass extinction event.

It rambles and rumbles along, but I cannot share the enthusiasm at the loss of Stuart Scott the previous frontman for this, I always thought he was too much the lightweight, not much presence, too light a touch on the subject to get anyone to notice, too quiet a speaker. Maybe we need more of the Brian Blessed to get these discussions noticed!

Never mind, Mr Grumpy here, no harm intended, it starts very elementary and luckily gets better, salient points are mankinds inability with non-linear change and a hypothetical question at 28:00 that if we fast tracked solar generation into a five year period as how this would help or solve the matter of human extinction. Answer is ‘not really’ … all the changes are now ‘locked in’ to the unstoppable dynamic of climate change and extinction. Not much was made of the methane time bomb but when Prof Wadhams is quizzed into admitting five years as a possible diary marker for a cataclysmic event in my opinion I agree.

This is chemtrail…

UK chemtrail diary 12th August 2021.

Late morning visit to my local town and BINGO chemtrails galore in the sky above and to the west, part usage of my DQA Reporting System would warrant 7/10 for quantity and 7/10 for affect or permanence of the trails themselves; lots of wide haze or side blown haze extending from the chemtrail ands lots of criss-cross filled sky. Can be known also known as ‘whitening of the skies’ or geoengineering, terms that we will hear more of as time goes by or more accurately time is in short supply. All too late, all quite pointless now, but that I cover elsewhere on this blog.

I was hoping because of the time of seeing the sky above ie late morning which I guess correllates with when the sat takes the data then looking into worldview is that NASA Worldview actually has picked this up ans so it has.

Answer= YES … BINGO manifold joy as what I see in the sky above is confirmed by NASA Worldview.

Here is the first screen capture at 2:45 pm BST before any of the additional filters become available but before NASA chop up and bury some of the image available on later playback.

Link for below at basic / initial terra / MODIS …. https://go.nasa.gov/3fYaBcG

Below let us look at the same image but with the second from bottom filter used ie Aqua / MODIS ie … https://go.nasa.gov/3lXFSjM

Same as previous but with different filter ie Aqua/Modis rather than Terra/ Modis ie https://go.nasa.gov/3lXFSjM

Note in the above second image enhanced portrayal of chemtrails at bottom right. Lets closer to them …. ie https://go.nasa.gov/3AGSf7N

Screen width 210km (130 UK miles) https://go.nasa.gov/3AGSf7N chemtrails Dogger Bank, Lincolnshire, Norfolk.

Gotcha! Clear and true, this is chemtrail, all of it, extending across the screen bottom left to top right, shown above as North Wales and running to Norway. Funny how a few months ago some UK Government was obviously embarrassed when she let slip ‘whitening of the skies’. Below lets look at the bigger pic for these lines in the sky and third screen capture will be in closer detail.

IPCC

The IPCC is an organisation I am very sceptical of, the experts are ‘hand-sorted’ so to speak which as we know with the lamentable omission of Prof Peter Wadhams in their last big science-fest a few years ago and so by not publishing his work (the considerations of a world ranking Arctic ice expert) … this means mostly the IPCC can only offer a sanitised and diluted version of what could actually happen to us all.

Heres a case in point of the IPCC not liking the extent of what could occur in the next few years re climate change and how they throw out of the window any modelling that scares or offends them, its bad science, selective science of the worst sort, be sure to look at the chart …

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2021/07/un-climate-panel-confronts-implausibly-hot-forecasts-future-warming

It must be remembered that if we model climate on a childs eight inch football the portion that we inhabit ie half a mile up and half a mile down equates to the thickness of a cigarette paper, one thousandths of an inch which is half the thickness of a human hair… FACT.

This means the chemistry set known as our worldwide climate systems are easily jarred and reactive to new ingredients ie temperature, ocean flow, atmospheric modifications, jet stream modification, ice loss, methane eruption, carbon particles ie dust, the loss of algal activity in the oceans, changing weather patterns over whole continents, etc etc.

In other words ‘crazy cussed stuff’ … such as drought where we don’t want it (lets say Americas grainbelt or Chinas rice bowl) and rain where it should not be for example in the Gobi Desert or the Himalayas (just guessing). Today we hear in the news that California is losing its electricity supply, upstream theres not enough water to power the hydro-electric generators.

Therefore in the above link which exposes the IPCC dislike of what could happen and refusal to accept modelling for a more catastrophic future than they are prepared to admit, I personally go with Sam Carana and fear the temperature rise will be greater than any contemplated by the IPCC, we are being spoon fed only what is deemed digestible by certain experts and vested interest.

What is fundamental to all this forecasting and modelling is that EVERYTHING seems somehow to be involved in a myriad of self reinforcing feedback loops. For instance today we hear on the news that Siberian fires are releasing carbon particles right up into the North Pole, this was easily seen on NASA Worldview a few days ago. Therefore the ice becomes darker, absorbs heat quicker and … BINGO melts faster from above, never mind the warmer water attacking from beneath. It will be near an instantaneous event when all ice ‘flashes’ from the Arctic, an event of probably weeks, months but not decades.

We have to fight, we cannot go down without a fight, but will it do any good? Not really.

It saddens me that hubris, name it what you will, will never un-mend peoples needs for vehicles of any sort which always one way or another carry huge carbon costs in manufacture and huge problems of disposal.

  • We need to live near our work, to walk there or maybe an electric or hydrogen trolleybus.
  • We need a one child policy everywhere. And applaud those with no children.
  • Car ownership of any sort needs to be a rarer thing.
  • Vastly reduce the American style burger culture.
  • Much reduce airflight for personal and even business need.
  • Minimise food waste, ie see your supermarket near closing, trolleyfulls of meat for disposal!
  • Only eat what you need.
  • Look at the footprint for concrete as a building material.
  • Look at the longevity of wind production, not so green.
  • etc etc name anything you like, there will be a downside to it!

If we lived ‘biblically’ simple farmers and traders and craftspeople I’m sure we would not be in this mess.

Will any of the above bullet points help us all … not really.

Lines in the sky UK

Chemtrail diary Tuesday 10th Aug 2021. North East England.

All day between the clouds you could often see lines in the sky of chemtrail. Totally incongruous to the general cloud pattern/ skyscape. These things stay visible for a long time and obvios to anyone create haze and obscuration of what otherwise be a clear blue area of sky. For the day using my DQA Reporting System I’d say DQA 9-3-3. I give it a 9 not a 10 because of my incomplete observation throughout the day.

A real convincing lines in he sky/ chemtrail at evening here in north east England, three or four criss-crossed lines in the sky plus a huge chemtrail spanning 60 degree of the sky, this was a heavy and unmistakable chemtrail around sunset, an excellent example of ‘one-sided’ drift from this material that did not want to weaken its presence. How can anyone miss this and not wonder and enquire what is going on???

Heres interesting information ….https://www.ourplanet.org/greenplanetfm/malcolm-scott-is-atmospheric-aerosol-geo-engineering-and-white-chemtrails-happening-over-new-zealand

Always be sceptical, never accept without questioning; use your noggin, think!

Calling Gary.

You know who you are and I hope you still read these jottings of mine, please would you ring me.

I need some work here at the hacienda outdoors, someone to help me, I’ll do the bulk of it and if you are in the north east, you can come round and will be paid for your time, you would be helping me more than you realise. I can pay yr transport costs too.

I had sent a postcard months ago but reckon it never reached you.

I ask no questions, do not need to know detail or your location. I do not judge, you know that.

Is covid wagging the NHS tail?

Yes I feel sorry for all those covid deaths and yes the pictures and footage from hospitals is harrowing, but surely not all NHS facilities and man power is being consumed within the NHS for covid?

I don’t know the breakdown and so therefore this is why I ask.

So meantime what is happening with specialist teams, of surgeons, of referrals, therapists, cancer screening and its treatment and operations for specialist intervention?

Again I don’t know and so therefore this is why i ask the question.

I remember my now deceased wife and I waiting a long time to merely have her ECG a little while before she died, even whilst in with the far too over-talkative nurse I couldn’t help but be perturbed at the waiting room full of overdue appointments whilst this nurse chattered nonsense totally superfluous to the task in hand; in fact holding us back and a dozen folk in the waiting room from getting on with our day. When this happened a couple of years later for myself of a pre-op check-up this time my ire was loaded and I made a formal complaint, again patients kept waiting. A fine example of a) institutionalism and b) lack of effective management. At some other time my own ECG was over and done in about three or four minutes, that particular nurse knew what she was doing in the full sense of the word. great contrasts of light and shade, of competence and incompetence.

And to the point of this, my now clearly stated need of urgent referral to the nearby city Eye Dept as written up on a hand delivered letter to whatever doctor deals with me at my local GP Practice a mile away was not acknowledged until Friday lunchtime from a Tuesday 4pm delivery (damn … wish i got it signed for) the acknowledgement phone call from them clearly mis-stating the information was received Friday morning and as the whoever particular doctor was off until Monday means a near weeks delay for something my optician marked as URGENT. This eye problem and loss of effective vision in one eye is something that came on quickly, could get worse and is BP related so therefore it seems we need to include the GP in the loop. Apparently i need medication to reduce BP and a simple treatment to drain the water from behind the eye.

Time is of the essence I would think.

So why is it covid has such a grip on the NHS?

The bbc radio news tells us the real disaster of covid is the stall-up of near all ongoing NHS activity. Even this week in an easing of restrictions patients are not allowed into our local GP practice, its all phone or nothing. Meanwhile nearby drinkers and socialisers can laugh and shout to their hearts content at an evening at the pub or a club.

I shake my head at the inability of so many people around me.

postscript, when i got my two jabs at the low ceilinged quite small cricket club I was baffled and quite frightened at both visits why there was so little through ventilation …. at the covid jab centre! I actually refused to wait the fifteen minutes post jab to be indoors, no-one else in sight sat on the veranda to check of no adverse reaction before driving home.

Am I the only sane person?

We have a new Chief Exec of NHS England, Amanda Pritchard.

I salute and applaud and wish the greatest good luck, energy and foresight to Amanda Pritchard.

Amanda Pritchard named new head of NHS England | Financial Times (ft.com)

What I cannot believe and FIND UNFATHOMABLE IS THE NEAR-MISS APPOINTMENT OF ‘cock-up-queen’, buffoon extraordinaire Dido Harding which I also read was (that quaint so jarring epiphet ‘Baronness!) so keen to bag that appointment.

A buffoon is someone that does not know how stupid and incompetent they actually are.

I have been at the hands of the incompetence of Tiscali an earlier Dido Harding vehicle of destruction and Great Britain as a whole has been at the hands of the Dido Harding led ‘endless pit of wasted money’ called UK ‘track and trace’. Look at the stats, something like £30k per follow-up was being bandied about, even in error of a factor of ten the costs are stupendous. There needs to be accountability on this.

What is the Dido phenomena that she is ‘fireproof’ ???

Come on UK, get your act together and realise how hopeless and incompetent Dido Harding actually is.

Stuff years of qualifications, all you need is the right school, the right cocktail parties and BINGO you bag the job!

Its schmooze UK !

I think we are looking at a female Dom Cummings, we ask “Why are they here?” Luckily Dido does not hog the limelight … sorry hog the soundbite. Therefore we know little about her, see nothing of merit yet bafflingly see her propelled to a high level. There must be bewilderment and gnashing of teeth at the rise and rise of Dido Harding.

Madness, madness, madness.

Its becoming a Lewis Carrol world …..

Lines in the sky. North east England diary ‘lines in the sky’.

From very little these last few months lately they are becoming more easily seen ie what can be construed as chemtrail. This blog here of mine has lots of chemtrail diary and photographs for the previous two or three years. Google searches indicate i am the UKs most prolific blogger on these things, maybe thats why theres little for me to photograph or record this last half year.

Many if not most people will not acknowledge the chemtrail phenomena, but ask any Californian, they get lots, likewise from NASA Worldview places to look are English Channel, Irish Sea, Isle of Man and Cumbria, also North Sea, Dogger Bank. Biscay used to get lots and into central France, not much seen lately if NASA Worldview is anything to go by, a very incomplete data source as to the ‘one-shot’ timing of the picture we are presented. I somehow need high def realtime satellite imagery …. how do i obtain this? Ideas anyone?

Yesterday Friday 23rd July 2021 here NE England in the sky above visible from early and until past sunset in the far western horizon, what i assume to be the west UK flight corridor.

Using my DQA system of a couple of years ago i rate as…

Duration = all day ie 10/10.

Quantity= moderate ie 3/10.

Affect= no dark ‘reaction clouds’ merely a spreading haze or whitening of the sky ie 3/10 only.

Therefore my DQA for yesterday Fri 23rd July 2021 is 10, 3, 3.

Link for the image below …. https://go.nasa.gov/3i7yqQV

Chemtrail activity north east England, southern Scotland, Friday 23rd July, 2021. https://go.nasa.gov/3i7yqQV

Q. Why are these lines in the sky not fading quickly, why so persistent, why widen out to form a much wider definite ‘band’ in the sky, they stay there for hours?

Why some days and not others?

Why sometimes in a repeated flight path, a corridor, a predictability for any one day?

Its my opinion ‘whitening of the skies’ will become much more mainstream, be introduced as such as a necessary step to counter climate change ( I’m guessing at forthcoming COP Glasgow). We know its all futile, there are so many grim interconnected feedback loops, its as if we are having to re-write the book of planetary weather systems, ie DMS (algae), methane, sulfate, ocean circulation systems, the loss of ocean oxygenators known as algae, etc etc. Yesterday I suddenly thought …. “What if our sewage treatment filter bed systems where we use live algae and plankton collapsed due to extreme heat, could this occur? Just about everything else is, its a joke of mine we just about have everything happening other than aliens! So far people just do not seem to be making the adjustments necessary.

Lines in the sky diary Monday 26th 2021, plenty to see in the evening, say six or eight at any tine, including a criss cross example. I hadn’t time to keep looking up at the sky, work indoors kept me busy, so if we just count what was actually observed my DQA sytem rates it as 3,3,2. ie 3/10 duration, 3/10 quantity, 2/10 affect.

Next day Tues 26th July again tasks indoors keep me busy but also the sky itself is obscured, cloudy. However NASA Worldview shows what I from experience see as an altered ie chemtrail sky off the coast here in north east England. ie https://go.nasa.gov/3ye1BXW

Suspected chemtrail north east coast England 27th July 2021. https://go.nasa.gov/3ye1BXW

Note above it is the ‘french grey’ colouring that is chemtrail, half of what you see above, the main solid lighter cloud presence in my opinion is natural. Click on the link and click to enlarge, this backs up my suspicion. Also, click the different layers and look at northern France ie Brittany.

The news.

The news saddens me, as a collective effort we seem so hopeless. For instance….

Pulling out from Afghanistan is insanity, a tragedy, a betrayal of all the lives lost, work and effort on all sides. Methinks quite what is the agenda, the reason for this?

The UK lockdown with massive financial handouts (and remember some folk got nothing ie black economy workers, the inept, and a dear friend of mine) can only trigger a dreadful inflation, but also the money will be squeezed from elsewhere. As shown on the news in the last few days, nurses are hardly rewarded for all their selfless frontline effort; Priti Patel is most reluctant to loosen the purse strings and the police are to get nothing, in effect to recede in income.

Dominic Cummings lurks in the shadows to occasionally be caught in the limelight flashing his traitors dagger, so clever a man with his 20/20 hindsight yet his own tenure often created little more than discord and change for change sake; to rattle and to provoke needlessly. He thinks he is so clever, few others think likewise.

Herd immunity in the UK has crept in through the back door, Matt Hancock would never have allowed it, makes one wonder if it was engineered he would be got rid of for this purpose. He has my utmost sympathy.

Does anyone talk about transmissability and how the young are letting us all down; ie throngs of excited sub-thirty year olds here in the UK insisting on raves and partying for no purpose other than hedonistic thrill once that whistle blew at midnight. A ridiculous sight of people supposedly going on toward adulthood and right on the cusp of the delta variant taking hold. Madness and a sad indictment of Boris Johnson, when books are written he will not look good. My routine of masks, gloves, keeping distance and hand washing will remain. Already numskulls get too close at the checkout, I can see I will be speaking my mind on this.

UK track and trace is being allowed to run rampant, far more damaging than the thing it is supposed to be stopping. Is this the mark of yet another Dido Harding disaster?

UK death stats covid linked are too crude, of those able-bodied economic contributors what is their real number? There needs to be clear demarcation between the fit and those never able to withstand such a dreaded virus anyway.

Because of covid vast amounts of people are behind schedule for treatments, operations, or their cancer being attended to. Its tragic dedicated professionals and expert teams have not been allowed to get on with what they do best.

And why has the need to cope with climate change seemingly fallen off the page? I read little news of arctic warming, ice loss, of permafrost turning to mush and the ultimate extinction trigger of methane release. Theres a trickle of news re forthcoming COP but little else, very little pressure if any for us to change lifestyle and values. Commutes, SUVs, holidays abroad and burger consumption seemingly all go ahead at full tilt.

Forthcoming COP26 in Glasgow will be another melodrama of fine intentions but of insufficient real action. The frustration among scientists and informed individuals must be horrendous and no doubt sadly the IPCC will again demonstrate how deaf they are and how far they lag behind. Poor Greta, she must be tearing her hair out at how hopeless we all are. I’m wondering, the IPCC appear so slow they would be better classified as a ‘historical society’ that only exists to write up, record and ponder long after the event.

ps. I nearly forgot, the travesty of cutting aid from the UK to countries most in need. Can the bods in charge not realise or see in their minds eye how vital this money must be? Scandalous!

Lines in the sky.

Certainly obvious and visible this morning Sunday 11th July 2021 here in north east England; huge lines across the sky with characteristic permanence and widening to whiten the sky. No pics taken but lets look at NASA Worldview to see if its captured anything, yup looks like it has.

Same day below and looks to confirm what was seen in the sky above this morning.

Lines in the sky, believed to be chemtrail, sea area Thames, Sunday 11th July 2021. https://go.nasa.gov/3r0UbV2

Hint: look out over to the Dogger Bank, more chemtrail material to observe. The above is 99% to my mind the point I am trying to prove here, there are lines in the sky that need not be there; California has had decades of this, west coast USA has very high and measurable aluminium levels a result of this generally termed chemtrail activity. Google Francis Mangels a retired Fisheries Biologist and see his alarm at all this.

Lets cruise around for the last few weeks and see what other material NASA Worldview can provide, I remember vividly June 6th last was an obvious chemtrail day here in north east England.

Chemtrail Irish Sea July 9th … https://go.nasa.gov/3e7p0m1

Chemtrail Irish Sea July 6th … https://go.nasa.gov/3AQhDsI

Chemtrail sea area Sole, Plymouth July 6th … https://go.nasa.gov/3k6IeMd

In my opinion a lot of what you see here in the Irish Sea is chemtrail 4th July 2021… https://go.nasa.gov/3hvh9kc

A lot of this is chemtrail as well as the obvious 120 mile streak … July 3rd sea area Forties, https://go.nasa.gov/3yOwfaq

Below, https://go.nasa.gov/2UIhVRJ

Chemtrail 30th June, sea area Cromarty, Forth, Dogger, https://go.nasa.gov/2UIhVRJ

In the above we can see a two hundred mile chemtrail streak, to my eyes a lot of what we see central image is chemtrail in various stages of decay.

What kids need …

… and how we can educate them formed the basis of this mornings 0900 BST prog on bbc r4.

BBC Sounds – Rethink, Rethink Education, Is the current exam system fit for purpose?

Amol Rajan did an as usual excellent job as MC and the sage words of Kenneth Baker were the highpoint. The other contributors seemed not able to place rigour or logic upon much of what they said. Sometimes they descended to nonsense, not realising their silliness, throughout all this Amol was a beacon of equanimity.

As usual anything ‘rote’ was ridiculed as un-necessary but how else can we get a body of knowledge into ones noggin, but also a term neglected was of ‘understanding‘ … it is understanding that should be the result of an education, whether it be a day or a decade. Equally derided these last forty year has been a practical hands-on education ie working with materials and to improve skill, Kenneth Baker particularly realising the importance of practical work for the majority of non-academic working class kids. I went to Technical College the first of any of my bloodline and it suited me fine as day release for five years, it was sufficient.

In the bbc r4 prog today why was it that ‘English’ was lauded as such a good thing to age seventeen, at that point I would assume most kids would find it excruciating. Book-learning suits the academically adept but for the ordinary an education needs tweaked to include manual skills and hand-eye co-ordination, practical dexterity and problem solving combined with knowledge acquisition. It may be old fashioned ie ‘the dovetail joint’ but it lays the foundation, the bedrock for more exalted slick and technical activities.

Again, realise with the web kids know less than ever.

Are the Educationalists to blame for all the endless and ultimately pointless ‘re-jigging’ of curriculum?

We have a system here in the UK where the old style wood and metal practical work has been discarded. I personally feel this is outrageous and does a dis-service to those pupils with any inclination to this activity. I remember at our north country Secondary School circa 1969-74 anything ‘sports field’ or gym was lauded with so much kudos, yet my own excellence (and speed) at wood, metal and tech drawing brought near zero standing. How come I never got to shout at anyone that couldn’t do the task or got it wrong? Goodness enough times as freezing cold out of doors this was the only time anyone noticed me, to ridicule. Yet I was master of my craft when indoors and using my hands. But also the practical trades are also about problem solving, building a body of knowledge, of ‘learning’ and each time aiming to do better, to be neater, less flawed. Apart from throwing a clay pot probably the only opportunity to develop minds eye co-ordination, of visualisation. Educationalists have seemed adamant in the last forty years to diminish and throw to the wind such fine attributes. And we wonder why the UK struggles to be a first league manufacturer!

Lets face the truth, for past the age of fourteen is there anything touched upon at school that was of any use to them whatsoever, I mean for ordinary folk? Nope!

Why cannot we …

Why can not we have what has nurtured and enthralled us for centuries?

Why does it have to be the next ‘big thing’ ie its only the next big thing that will fulfill us, the shit of Meta, social networking junkery or whatever is riding on the crest of technology?

I’d prefer to read a page of text, a few lines of poetry, perhaps the distilled essence of most likely an old man long dead; or a picture from the Renaissance or almost anymost century accompanied with a worthwhile and educated commentary.

Why has human experience been watered down to one technological and morose thrill after another?

Devised by incomplete humans to engender an army of other incomplete humans.

Think, read, learn …. theres more to life than the web!
