The above is a stock photo appearing as if by magic from WP and for now let it remain. Quite appropriate, my ancestors on both sides had many lifetimes associated with the sea, some were fishermen, my mothers father a lifetime in the Royal Navy, some were harbour trades inc sailmaker for my mothers grandfather, my dad even drove a DUKW in the Second War.
The purpose of this blog is to bring attention to a wider medley of climate change topics, the best of what I can find and hopefully save people some time at getting a foothold on the masses of sites and youtubes that exist. I also hope I can bend ‘deniers’ and ‘don’t knows’ to realise quite what is happening and seed enthusiasm for newbies to learn more.
I’ve found that google and particularly youtube enhances its results over successive days at searching, day two and three often yielding better material. I’ve known this for a decade with the many interests that I have, some quite unusual for a man in England, vintage Chinese cinema for example or fifties Italian Neo Realism etc etc Hence the value of this effort at blogging here, to retain and mark the best both for myself and others.
But also as with the trump situation for the average person searching for page one and two google the newer churn can block out and make invisible material that still has value and really should be to hand. I think trump deliberately knows this effect, as if burying his mistakes with newer ones.
I’ve deliberately kept to a minute or two of reading and no more than say three vids (preferably shorter ones) or three or four links per page. So much material out there particularly recorded talks and presentations seem so drawn out – I haven’t the time to sit and wait as it plays out! I hope in time the penny drops and brevity increases in value.
I’ve also deliberately kept away from listing huge loads of links or lots of diagrams and schematics, these are so easily viewed from other and immensely more able web contributors, for instance Paul Beckwith has lots of visual material to aid presentation and explain complexity.
Keen .... interested and don't like being fooled. Since I 'turned on' to climate change in Nov 2017 its instantly become all important to me.
So many aspects to consider, loss of sea ice, Arctic methane in its three forms (geological, frozen hydrate and microbial) insane (and deceptive) weather modification programmes, diatom loss (and algae and plankton) therefore loss of Pacific coral, Antarctic ice shelf set to begin collapsing, the methane time bomb, worldwide glacial melting, methane release from permafrost, global warming, Pacific contamination from Fukushima, Jet Stream disturbance, unstoppable feedback loops and the interconnectedness of natural forces and systems .... probable mass extinction etc etc.
I cannot see how there can be such a thing as 'climate change denial'.
I'm very tuned in to being outdoors, I've seen things few other people have ever seen or realised ie plants, animals, signs of our ancient ancestors; rocks, landscape, topography; the microscope, diatoms and algae. And of course the more I learn the greater my humility at how little I know.
Please realise though 2 or 3C sounds nothing it has triggered along with higher CO2 levels our weather systems to go into a self perpetuating feedback mode from a previous 'steady state' and this planets life-forms to be severely thrust into turmoil. Less ice means greater heat absorption, a black algae contributing, jet stream now slit in two and thrusting warm air and damp into the Arctic, These things are real and HAPPENING. Polar bears, the saddest of sights will soon only exist as memory, can you see as many bees in summer? We are losing Arctic and Antarctic ice, at the North Pole it is stupidly over-heated and now exists only as water, you cannot walk there, ie this is now and is now plain fact.
Food production will be vastly hindered, is already inoticeable, also the to be dreaded and increasing chemtrails hinder crop growth, the aluminium we know for fact promotes plant disease, hinders solar energy production and destroys ozone. Aluminium from chemtrails has destroyed waterborne entomology ie insect life, as well as I'm guessing diatoms and algae (and as not yet discussed coral reef destruction, the bryozoanss have lost their diatom partners) .... bees now battle with dementia from aluminium. One part say the lower part of the food chain cannot be taken away without all collapsing. Witness the much under-reported Pacific sea bird collapse of 2015. SAVVY UP - BE AWARE !!!
