As a kid modelmaking in all its forms fascinated me, looking back its amazing how active I was, but then I have always been active, never for me was lurking around street corners or the usual lies or deceit of the typical teenager. Amazing how much I got done, considering how little encouragement I got, a little but not a lot; however tools and some basic materials were always somewhere to hand. I think my uncle John was my greatest help, he would visit once or twice a year and incredibly would often have some type of modelmaking kit for me, shop bought and new! Otherwise I would scour the one or two bookshops me n my Dad ever visited in any year and scour the shelves for such likely titles as ‘Model Making for Boys’, only then to be stuck with the near insurmountable probem of getting my Dad to buy the thing ….
The point of this exercise is to show how fragile and small are our oceans and breathable atmosphere, how so easily they can be triggered to undesirable changes as we now have. It amounts to a thickness of cigarette paper (0.001 inch ie ‘one thou) on the surface of a football.
Imagine the world is a ball, 8 inches in diameter, this would equate to approx 8,000 miles in diameter. Note figures are approximates to within ten percent. Therefore one inch on our model equals 1,000 miles and 0.001 equals one mile.
Average depth of water is 2 miles therefore for our model oceans are 0.002 inch ie ‘two thou’; the same thickness as a human hair. Likewise above two miles you will be hardly able to breathe therefore usable atmosphere is again ‘two thou’. Four thou is the thickness of copier paper and so all life on earth past and present in any form whatsoever exists in a layer barely the thickness of copier paper on our model.
However lets narrow the limits of most lifeforms to half a mile down, half a mile up, therefore one mile, one thousandths of an inch, half the thickness of a human hair, the thickness of a cigarette paper.
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 !!!
