Yet the quite lamentable and quite laughable C in C donald j trump would have otherwise. As in all his life trump is so out of step. I deny him upper case.
A few posts ago I wrote on how 12 billion tons of ice melted in one day in Greenland from an embed youtube and this one day added a half millimetre to the worlds oceans. I’ve no means of proving this data but nonetheless etc.
Its my opinion that trumps climate change denial and roll-back/ deregulation of all valuable hard won legislation with conservation, energy sensibility, climate safeguards are in fact War Crimes. trump goes golfing when he should be a President.
That in fact Donald J trump does in fact 100% agree climate change is well and truly altering this planet in his ludicrous desire to ‘buy’ Greenland. Its the same as his bizarre insistence on yet more ‘Border Wall’ when in fact sufficient exists already. trump is very much yesterdays man now but how long will the morally and ethically moribund Republicans shore him up, to prop a limp doll now totally irrelevant to the real world.
Instead of picking fights with the Chinese he should be thanking them for the huge profits generated in the West from buying from China as a low cost supplier.
trump is clueless utterly clueless, is fed just sufficient low brow notions and redundant glimpses of untruths from his backers to keep him dangling alive with a few pronouncements amid a whirring helicopter engine meanwhile behind closed doors the real destruction and roll-backs continue. All accusations trump has ever thrown at others are in fact applicable more accurately to himself, namely he IS the swamp.
Greenland proves trump knows fine well climate change is a huge vast engine of change that cannot be stopped. I write this post as unusually google / youtube is offering me better search results than usual ie reaching out of the Windows 10 bubble that is a restriction that arrived with this replacement stack a few months ago.
Below we are told Greenland has lost eleven billion tons of ice in one day and the sea worldwide rose half a millimetre in ONE DAY! Remember also that thermal expansion will raise ocean levels still further.
Note in the last two seconds of the vid below how all the river flow disappears down a hole to also erode and melt from below, as if Swiss cheese.
Most certainly as these immense rivers bigger than we westerners can visualise every minute every day supply vast quantities of warmed water onto the East Siberian ice shelf, the home of vast up to 20km deep stored carbon in oxygenless ie anaerobic conditions; the perfect laboratory for the production of vast amounts of methane as well as a catastrophic volume of methane ready to blow. The underwater ice cap itself has luckily sealed the methane, that is now going fast as it anywhere and everywhere on the circumpolar map of the Arctic where it shows white or pale blue, theres lots.
We should also realise the rivers Yenisey and the Kolyma.
Its a simple fact even a small portion of this impending methane release will destroy all CO2 conversion as we know it and us with it, last week at last a news story carried re ocean cloud formation and plankton (DMS) … to my mind too little reporting, too light ie no mention of the irony of diatom collapse (see where our oil and gas originated) and CO2 reduction quite futile. As in the link below the IPCC report is way off target (the usual plain underestimation / reduced easier to swallow figures misleadingly put forward) … but hey … why alarm anyone or Governments when we can trundle onwards with half a smile and half a conscience.
Mostly I know where we are going and this latest s/h windows 10 acquisition seems to thwart new or latest links. I cannot listen to Paul Beckwith now, only a briefer zippier presentation could hold my interest. Names I will still google for are Prof Kevin Anderson, Prof Peter Wadhams, Prof Paul Erlich, links in order below.
And below a screen capture and a link for Siberia, it is big, the biggest landmass and the shallowest iceshelf we could imagine. Yet who in the west until now thinks of the rivers Lena and the Ob? Note vast plumes of smoke from forest fires, zoom in to see the areas alight.
I honestly don’t think I’ll be sat here in ten years time, in 2029, its quite impossible; there is just no way basic laws and interactions of physics and chemistry can be thwarted.
Lier-in-Chief installed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue indeed must assume all human beings are far beneath him. This is not conjecture, it is observable fact.
We are indeed witnessing the base layer of ‘the swamp’.
trump continues to attempt to ridicule others (note I deny him upper case) … but in fact he barefacedly denigrates himself to garbage day after day.
My utmost sympathies and ongoing strength to his victims.
trump should in fact should be tried for War Crimes once this sham debacle works its way to an honest conclusion, his refusal and downright utter refusal to incorporate ‘climate change’ into official USA scientific vocabulary is indeed a crime to Humanity.
A month ago (June 21st 2019) I blogged and drew attention to how nonsensical, silly and downright intentionally misleading was a Yale presentation on youtube telling us how insignificant and quite benign was the impending release of methane (in three forms ie frozen hydrate, microbial and geological) as the permafrost melts, as it is in fact doing right now quite happily in all shallow Arctic sea including the East Siberian Ice Shelf.
A motley crew indeed … its called ‘funding’ … pure and simple.
I’ve written this post energised by viewing today the vid below saying exactly as I do that basically the Yale presentation is garbage, staggering in its complacency and lack of knowledge; just a total and tragic disconnect from where we are at present.
I think I’m correct in saying that last years folly of the 2018 IPCC Report did not include Dr Peter Wadhams Arctic Ice material (world expert) and ignored impending methane release.
In the above attention is drawn to the misleading nature of the Yale Climate Connections presentation (02:00), the importance of the Russian work on methane release (14:00) and how Natalia Shakhova cannot get her work peer reviewed or published as her data indicates methane levels her reviewers do not want to read of !! Basically this is censorship.
Below is a good intro to the subject … Natalia Shakhova, Univ Alaska, Fairbanks.
The slowness, blindness and inaccuracy of the IPCC is astounding. I think I’m correct in saying didn’t include subsea methane release in their most recent ‘modelling’ (highly inaccurate anyway) and ignored melting Arctic ice. Lewis Carrol could have written the script. Levels that are in the short term are the levels that will destroy us, say x130 for methane; theres no medium or long term worth considering, we’ll not be here.
Anyways, 2C will come and go v quickly, better start thinking 3C plus, which of course means human life is teetering and gone. Think about it, feedback loops of enormous world encompassing comprehensivity, nature in the raw so to speak, grain production areas disabled, theres nowhere else it can be done, corporations had better get ‘superfood’ substitutes developed v quickly. Thank God I don’t live in a large centre of population, water distribution / delivery / pumping and sewage disposal will become so critical. And so on and so on …
So many pundits / governments / media voices seem to wish to project a false prediction that somehow or other 2 degrees C of warming will leave us all at a levelling off, when in fact the whole system of nature is now a frightening series of triggers and feedback loops revving up to go faster.
sea level rise
green growing things ‘go in reverse’ for CO2 conversion
algae / diatom crash the oceans die (witness diatom / bryozoan symbiosis ie coral reef.
… oops sorry to offend any cretin. But its true, trumps many chaos, many denials are near beyond number.
Yes you had porn stars and paid them off even though dollar bills were never requested, never required.
Yes you ring hapless contractors and offer them cents on the dollar.
Yes. you steam roller through to bypass any semblance of paying a tax bill or accurate and honest accounting.
trump is quite hapless, the kid that never did homework, sailed along on ‘front’ and brazen disregard.
My particular axe to grind tonight is his breathtakingly pathetic performance at G20 re climate change.
As usual a few ignorant and off target remarks and trump thinks, fools himself he ‘has it in the can’. Here in the north east of England we would call him ‘donnard’. It means stupid, dim, irrelevant, thick, of catastrophic bad performance; pretty well sums up the whole White House pantomime and its sick tired entourage. His baseless tissue thin platitudes surely can not still fool anyone?
Heres a useful succinct resume as what we are up against with the idiocy of trump; remember, his only qualification is a reality tv show of low merit.
postscript; I am most certainly critical because the nonsense we see and hear and the divisive low brow garbage Presidency of donald j trump can not be allowed to develop into mainstream and accepted as ‘normal’. It is not normal in any shape or form to wreck, sow fear and anxiety, to deride ordinary people, to alter and manipulate impressions, views, free speech ie his achingly tiresome attack of the Free Press.
The man is useless. The photo-op (as with KJU NK) is quite shallow and basically pointless, but KJU loves all of this, propelled from hardly of importance to worldwide coverage. trump feeds the world his photo-op lead story nonsense knowing fine well theres endless appetite for his trivia, this unthinking tissue thin nonsense. This obscures a more critical debate or recognition of the dismantling and regressive backward motion of his Presidency. Witness EPA, Universities etc being told to not mention climate change or even accept such peril is at hand. This to my mind is a War Crime.
Heres a useful precis of the idiocy and hopelessness of a latter day Wizard of Oz, puffing and grunting but actually quite hopeless …
I suggest for instance … Ignorance of “liberal democracy” from the above where trump is hopelessy unable to understand what is actually meant by ‘western liberal democracy’ and thinks in his usual pointless wordsalad response that it is states out west run by LBGT enthusiasts that he is required to comment upon.
soundbite soundbite soundbite …
Vast swathes of ‘ornery folk have forgotten theres a thing called books, of knowledge, precedent, history, depth and learning.
