I started looking at diatoms in around 1992, absolutely fascinating as they slowly moved themselves around on the surface of the glass microscope slide. Show anyone a goog image search for diatoms and they will be fascinated. They are anywhere that at some time is a wet surface, puddles, among moss on moors, stones in streams, all over the seas and oceans. Diatoms are near the base of the food chain and utterly essential, they cannot be done without and likewise the larger more sophisticated phytoplankton feed on them, all of them are part of the CO2 conversion apparatus.
Seventy percent of the worlds oil and gas is derived from ancient diatomaceous oil trapped / contained beneath the earth and silica is used literally as the base (wafer) for doping and etching to make intergrated circuits and modern day electronics.
This recent article tells us things look bad for diatoms:-
“Most of these studies, however, have been conducted under high-iron conditions. Our study uncovers a widespread cellular mechanism that suggests high CO2 might be particularly problematic for phytoplankton growth in low-iron regions of the ocean.”
quote … The team then initiated a study to investigate the evolutionary relationships of transferrin and phytotransferrin. To their surprise, the proteins were functional analogs whose ancient origins extend to the pre-Cambrian period of Earth history, predating the appearance of modern plants and animals.
“The appearance of phytotransferrin some 700 million years ago is consistent with a time in Earth’s history marked by massive changes in ocean chemistry, and this ancient evolutionary history helps explain why no one has connected ISIP2A and transferrin,” said Miroslav Oborník, a molecular evolutionary biologist from the University of South Bohemia and co-author on the paper.
As in some gruesome joke we are just finding out about things as we are losing them. So, half our CO2 to O worldwide is from phytoplankton that now looks much stressed and likewise plant and tree CO2 conversion is modifying itself, shutting down as it were in reaction to the increased CO2 that they live among as per a previous post of mine with associated loss of planet cooling transpiration and protein as nutrient in leaves and pollen. Natural growing things, weather systems, the mechanisms of nature all look as if pre-programmed to dislike the present situation. Also bees and insects according to some are a tenth or nil of former populations and one cannot help but continue the line of the graph to the bottom. No bees observed in my garden this year to take all the pollen of my spring flowering bulbs, I noticed this decline quite easily three or four years ago. Today I shall have to pollinate all the crocus so that seed will be viable, I want to continue the spread of them here in my garden. Likewise not the former blue skies I expect of winter and spring, often ruined by non-fading chem trails and the quick-forming dreaded haze. It could be aluminium particles from weather modification ie the haze on clear blue (high pressure) mornings are to blame for the bee extinction, organic growers are struggling with much reduced yields and increasing disease which they think from the ally-rain. Even in my own garden a strange die-off on Hypericum, also rose leaf problems that are not the usual. The protein from green plants and pollen is merely two thirds of what it was. There are so many declines that soon blog posts like mine will need to incorporate long lists of bullet points!
Meanwhile Scott Pruitt at the American EPA and trump have banned mention of ‘climate change’ dismissing or moving scientists and plagued us all with the nonsense of ‘fake news’ to further combat any reality leaking into their world …
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 !!!
