We are only a seventh of the earths surface, oceans, algae, plankton and diatoms hold sway over our right to exist and their reaction to the cocktail of carbon etc we have cooked up.
Our naive foolery / ignorance seems inexhaustible, this week on bbc r4 news we had the excruciatingly dim ‘news’ of a PhD student using a hydrophone to capture in ponds and puddles ‘bubbles’ quote erupting from the pond material … NO MENTION of the importance of algae and diatoms as the major oxygenators on this planet and their possible / probable demise. He actually said ‘leaf layer’ which is not a true representation. No, the algal populations of leaves are not principal oxygenators, ie think ameoba, etc its more plankton attached to stems of lants, stones, bottom mud layer.
How the heck have I still retained all my hair!
The huge vast equation known as unlimited climate catastrophe knows no limits, SO MANY THINGS produce manifold and multiplying consequences. For instance we now read of the Tonga underwater volcano has increased water vapour in the atmosphere, this is classed as a climate accelerant, a greenhouse gas.
I dread how dry it will be this year in my garden, we can assume the water table is lower than it should be. I’ve just been outside today and nearly fell over a fledgling blackbird, I had thought already “I bet theres a nest there” and in my garden theres usually six nests built each year. Its all about habitat, a wonderful variety and assortment of natural growing things, nearly all perennial with a little raised each year as vegetables (usually peas) and say sweet pea for flowers. Nooks and crannies, safe havens aplenty. Do others where I live have this ability and develop intentional havens, not really, most garden as children would garden, seemingly unable to develop a knowledge base or intuition.
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 !!!
