Flying alongside a chemtrail …

V interesting youtube, here we fly alongside a chemtrail and it is blindingly obvious the thing does not diminish or disappear as would a bona-fide common or garden contrail ie conventional accepted result of jets flying.

The chemtrail hangs there undiminished with its burden of aluminium, barium, strontium etc. In time it will haze wider, providing a duller sky often where it is not wanted and altering the sky to a man-made one.

It is ‘free-borne’ aluminium that increases wildfires, most likely contributes to bee decline / dementia (essential pollinators)  …  increases autism in children and destroys life in lakes and rivers and in my opinion is the death of diatoms, something never seen by the naked eye but are where we obtain 70% of the worlds oil and gas reserves! Likewise coral reef diatom/ bryozoan symbiosis has been pummelled. The latter scientists seem silent about, as also with the catastrophic Pacific seabird die-offs of three and four years ago. Tens of thousands bizarrely flying toward land all with empty stomachs.  Excessive caution coupled with two and three year peer review is not helping this situation, likewise trumps dismantling of the EPA and gagging any knowledgable scientist from speaking out loud is quite despicable and in fact quite evil.

If trump is not actually trying to play God aided and abetted by his sordid backers and cohorts then he is most certainly an assailant of God and Nature.

Head in the sand jingoistic nonsense …filthy tariffs from trump.

bbc r4 Today programme had a most horrible twisted interviewee that I suppose valuably shed light on how insane some of the thinking is in the trump Regime. Asst Prof Dr Greg Autry of Southern California, years ago author of a book titled ‘Death by China’ was given prominent airtime this morning.  Why are we hearing this … oh my goodness, its hard to believe what we hear…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_fourfm

The alarming and skewed nonsense, I mean the interview with Asst Prof Greg Autry starts at 08:10 and we can say that this interview is certainly enlightening, I think Autry doesn’t realise he’s being exposed as the regressive jingoistic dinosaur he appears to be. Citing 19C USA tariff mindset, Hamiltonian Economics and openly regarding Zhongguo (China) as a suitable case for I quote “regime change”, its all worrying to hear. Perhaps Autry (if he is so keen on historical precedent) forgets its the Chinese that built the railroads out to the Pacific and lost many lives in the process, blasting through difficult terrain etc when white men would not perform such work. Perhaps Autry (if he is so keen on historical approaches) forgets the Imperialist crowbar from the British that resulted in flooding China with opium in the nineteenth century; the west cannot regard themselves as any beacon of virtue.  Also mentioning three times instances of ‘concentration camps’ being used within in a couple of minutes (yes we get the message) … admittedly there are some terrible things still happening in China BUT …. China has come a long way since the Communists took over in 1946, then thankfully the demise of Mao and since 1980 has worked miracles, has evolved at extraordinary pace in all fronts and provided the world with low cost product that has allowed massive profit margins and still allowed ordinary people to buy so much at such keen prices. And yet trump and his nasty imperial regressives want to bite off the hand that has enabled so much easy profit to be made by western businesses large and small !  Uh-oh this is v dangerous territory for the Asst Prof to hammer home all points of negativity and yet ignore totally where the world can work towards something better and is (was?) working toward something better.  This ignorant mindset upsets me, after hearing the interview I felt as when I heard the abysmal ‘Inaugration Speech’ from trump, close to tears.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_fourfm

Chuck Schumer is also cited as hailing to trump “Hang tough with China”. If its the same Chuck Schumer I’m thinking of then I’m very surprised at his low-brow simplistic exhortations.

Asst Prof Greg Autrys book actually of 2011 vintage received abysmal reviews and is generally described as jingoistic alarmist nonsense citing problems but offering no solutions, no understanding of how to move forward. As if shouting at foreigners will make them understand you any more easily, or more obedient. This is where the present leadership of the USA has descended. Therefore we wonder how far the bbc scraped the barrel to come up with this particular interviewee Greg Autry… bbc radio news other than ‘The World Tonight’ at 10pm is often is hardly worth airtime in the perennially golden glow it casts toward trump, imagine you were blind and this were your only news source!

One little man Autry with one little misguided outdated book his shot at fame, his ‘theory’ of how to deal with China does not make an opinion. Rather ask the hundreds and thousand of Heads of Corporation what they think of the direction and inabilities of trump? Tariffs cannot help anyone. trump already is creating suffering, turmoil and needless poverty and upset in the middle east, Iran, North Korea etc now he’s heading toward China. He is attempting to engineer particular regimes and countries on the world map to increase and prosper whilst to damage others. Perhaps his low attention span and lack of grasp will work to the worlds advantage.

There needs to be greater more honest psychological evaluation of the so-called God help us – Commander in Chief, he is much as when a younger man, veneer thin, blustering, ignorant. In his lack of ability he thinks tv skills will serve him sufficient for whatever task he performs, frighteningly there is a grain of sense in  this bizarre mindset

  •  trumps total inability to organise, form and develop any deal whatsoever, this a reflection of his life so far.
  •  trumps inability to realise or cope with Asian protocol, diplomatic technique or manners.
  • trumps total denial of the need for an intelligent experienced Diplomacy. Bolton and Pompeo are nowhere near up to this task.

As you can see I deny trump upper case.

The limits of knowledge …

…  its quite a high falutin’ term and has been used many times in the past, but mostly toward ‘advanced thinking’ by academics and philosophers but in my post here I mean it toward how it is often so difficult to put across in a few words areas of interest that I think others should also explore, ideas for children to build upon with activity and focused attention, a potential source of interest, joy and knowledge.

The limit of knowledge is that they are not interested and parents often now will view it as if witchcraft, ie the unusual, the less trodden pathway !!!

A case in point is encouraging young people to get a little more art and craft orientated in a practical manner, to explore images and artists from the past, to get practical  whether its cutting and pasting or sketching or modelling, clay, plaster whatever. To develop manual dexterity, to open pathways of thinking and co-ordination.  If by age ten they are not so inclined or have never known such activity then its not a given they will show any interest whatsoever in their lifetime. The curse of the screen has in a decade destroyed centuries of skill development that each child could experience so that in life they can have some facility with their hands, sketch, visualise, convey their meaning. Nursery rhymes, simple songs and poetry have for most children fizzled to nothing, become non-existent, needlework, helping with mother… all gone. Knowing the latest pop video release or minute nuanced trend in pop fashion is not building or development for rounded able citizens, just candyfloss, so much smoke and mirrors based on fantasy, endless escapism.

Looking at the Times newspaper April 29th p.29 print edition we find not even experts can agree, for instance counter to any common sense the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health decided this year there was no evidence that screen time itself was harmful!! This beggars belief. April 2019 the World Health Organisation injected some sanity to ask parents to greatly control and limit the amount of screen time children experience. Hurrah for the World Health Organisation !

Surely even a few brief seconds of seeing children hooked and over-enthusing on this junk can tell a parent or concerned adult all they need to know. Dear knows how poor their abilities will be as they progress through school, I’ve a feeling performance could be assessed as two and three years behind. Even the use of paper and being able to practice handwriting, sketch convey ideas is seen as arcane and marginal to requirements!!!

More enlightened parents will see to it Little Jonny does not skip the fundamentals the basics and will realise among other things paper and bookbased learning is essential. Theres an element of social class and background here that is being amplified and widened. A screen just cannot provide the depth quality or reinforcement to learning that is required, or the joyous serendipity of say a paper based textbook or encyclopedia.

This means there is an increasing gulf and stratification between those that can and those that cannot. An increase in differences of social class and performance. This unravels the efforts made to increase opportunity and pull up the poor performing, particularly since the Second War.

https://chicago.suntimes.com/well/world-health-organization-guidance-limiting-kids-screen-time/

Yet still in the above we hear of groups asking for evidence … answer = watch the bloody kids and see how skewed their behaviour actually is !!!

Likewise the UK Guardian in its often emotive woolly nonsensical fashion asks for evidence – as if again do they not use their eyes and ears to see things are amiss!

Kids cannot even ride in the car without having a screen installed right in front of their faces, to suck on the digital pap as they journey along; God forbid, more junk from Hollywood and endless animated crap. What we could describe as using that dire term of modern times ‘a targeted audience’. Or maybe a film about journeying thro Monument Valley … as they drive thro Monument Valley ?

Arctic thawing and landslides…

I assume this exposes hidden methane hydrates to thaw even quicker, accelerate microbial activity, allow subterranean gases to emerge and may well divert established waterflow toward raw earth. A couple of times in my life I’ve been close to landslip material and its a substance unrealised until one has seen and handled it.

An aside, my own husbandry of a watercourse to help reduce erosion … a place I know has had needlessly a mile of ditches re-dug which were very old and functioned fine already, the field border and ditches date from 1680 are moss lined, bound with perennial herbs and a highly efficient web of roots both fibrous and woody to bind it all together.  Lots of runs, holes and trackways from I guess vole activity. Now all this has been scraped away and dumped onto the other side of the road, exposed raw earth will most certainly be eroded and washed down as is already evident a few weeks following the needless so-called ‘improvement’ …  the complete mile is on a hill and runs down in basically a straight line downwards.  This is new work is a recipe for disaster. Again, I know that hill and for the last few winters merely as an anonymous citizen have known which drainage conduit to unblock with my six foot pry-bar to get things functioning (mostly from fly-tipped builders and garden waste) yet also each year for days previous to my visit all the locals, farmers, gamekeepers, middle class out of town country dwellers have sailed past in their cars and done nothing as the torrent carves out and undercuts the edge of the road.  So, as yet again the man in the digger has no intimate knowledge of what he is doing, no perceptible aptitude and merely wrecks what already functions perfectly well. A case in point being run off channels where I don’t think run-off will occur in many cases.  I guarantee as is already being demonstrated that once the heavy rain run-off flushes downwards the silt build up will in fact create flooding, blockage, overspill further down where none need have occurred. I often think man as a labouring animal, as trying to engage with intelligent / common sense husbandry is increasingly becoming useless at this small intimate scale. Further down, each year I also quite easily can divert side of road run-off back into the drainage channel merely banking a few inches of earth and voila! … job done. The digger driver has completely ignored these points / locations. My charming aside re basic hydrology now finished, back to the dreaded thawing permafrost.

Why do diesel drivers do this?

A flash new diesel SUV in the supermarket and as happens so often the remaining nitwit in the SUV insists on the diesel engine continuing to run, I was away from my own small car and twenty minutes later he’s still got the running !!!

I think some form of bye-law banning this would be in order.

This always annoys me, diesel drivers parked at the supermarket yet the engine running. I was starting to get vocal, the driver oblivious, never mind, gave him a good peep on the horn as I pulled away and twenty yards further on spoke to total strangers … “Theres catastrophic global warming and for twenty minutes he’s been sat there with the engine running”!! Thankfully they agreed.

My own carbon footprint is improving, my walks and nature rambles happily closer to home, saves petrol too and since my washing machine broke down a couple of months ago i actually do prefer the simple manual activity of a plastic bucket. I have that ‘wonder-gizmo’ called a washing line and gravity drains my clothes and the breeze dries them, even on cold days its okay as long as not actual ice. Anyone that can should be encouraged to do likewise. there never has been a tumble drier here and these last few years it has always bugged me as to how long the washing machine took to spin. now, i don’t think i could tolerate its noise. i also do think that my towels seem cleaner and fresher by virtue of manual plastic bucket over electricity consuming washing machine.

What we now need to see is a reduction in street lighting and a reduction in needless use of security lighting for homes as well as industrial.  Homeowners often have glaring security lighting for yards / gardens they never hardly enter and that no sane burglar would ever wish to go there ie the place is bare, bereft.

bbc r4 news tells us theres moves afoot here in the UK to be carbon neutral by 2050. Fine, if we are still here (which I personally doubt ie Arctic methane, etc) …  but the cringing inadaquecy of the brief news piece at the top of the hour was that we “May have to turn the thermostat down to 19” and also that “We may have to eat less red meat” … wow talk about inadequate!

Ideas for reducing carbon foortprint …

  • halve red meat consumption every two years, get inventive in the kitchen.
  • ban diesels idling in car parks.
  • wash a few items in the sink, get a washing line if feasible.
  • drastically reduce street lighting / security lighting and home outdoor lighting say to one third.
  • drastically reduce air flights, encourage limiting personal mobility from engine powered devices.
  • limit acceleration on bigger SUV type vehicles on open roads / motorways.
  • police more effectively forest elimination ie for red meat production.
  • population control, a one child policy.

The bar is in the mud …

… this is how low it has got.

No-one needs to poke fun at the numskull trump, he does perfectly well himself.

Yet the same moron is capable of so much nastiness, so much disruption and destruction. Polarizing, antagonising, endlessly creating enemies.

Slo-mo train wreck trump.

I’ll add bits and pieces as they appear …

Trump’s gut-driven picks continue to collapse

bbc r4 ‘Any Questions’ missed the point.

bbc r4 Saturday afternoon after the one o’clock lunchtime news treats us to ‘Any Questions’ followed by ‘Any Answers’ where old people ring in to ramble on. Yet here I am also participating as listener audience and as yet do not want to be lumped together with batty old … etc.

One of the half dozen questions was regarding trumps recently announced visit to Britain for the D-day memorial events; trump whether we like it or not is President of the USA our closest ally at that time.

What no-one mentioned is that post-Brexit we will do trade deals with anyone and everyone that will shake hands and agree to do so. Its called ‘backs against the wall’ Britain and therefore we will do trade deals with all and sundry just to glean a semblance of hope. You can wave goodbye to any form of UK motor industry and the multivarious supply chain. Which side of a 100k jobs in that industry alone?

What no one mentioned despite the endless ‘worthy’ hot air was that Pres Bone Spurs couldn’t even get his backside out of a hotel room, unglue himself from the tv / twitter and attend a pre-planned ceremony at a cemetary of American war dead a few months ago. Drizzle or a little bit of wet would seem to scupper his attendance; if perhaps Pres Bone Spurs did not have so contrived a ‘hairdo’ he could do what other men would have found to be no problem whatsoever.

What no one mentioned is the disgust we feel in the Free World that trump has deliberately taken such a regressive dark turn to dismantle and wreck all that was built up as ‘good’ for his country. Maybe that needs qualification, he resides in the USA and has endeavoured to pay as little tax as possible ie falsification, schemes, inflated values contrasting reduced values to grossly inflated when it suited him, etc etc. Yet one wonders what is his real country of residence … Russia?

…and what no-one mentioned is that trump is merely a short term fly in the ointment of what is otherwise a close cordial relationship that will continue far beyond any memory of things Trumpian.

What no-one mentioned when citing the past visit of Xi Jin Ping 习近平 (tones 2,4,2 something even the bbc is clueless about) …  is that the Xi2 is endeavouring to modernise, to reach forward to universal world values, to do better, is doing better when viewed in modern Chinese history whereas trump is hell bent at going in a backwards direction and inciting unease, anxiety, hatred and polarising any and all caste, creed, religion. His moslem ban is stupid beyond belief, stupid beyond belief sort of sums him up. Remember trumps obscene tax handbacks to the already super-wealthy.  In trumps world the bigot reigns supreme! So any comparison with X2i jin4 ping2 and trump is not clear cut, one aims higher, the other wrecks and regresses endlessly, of poor intention; therefore the latter is undesirable, toxic, unwelcome.

trumps manner is to never allow anything other than the glibbest shallowest platitudes with other World Leaders or the Free Press apart of course from in depth briefing sessions from his Master ie two hours unscripted with Putin in Helsinki, no minutes taken or even allowed, no other person of western heritage or US Official allowed. Wow – you cannot get creepier than that, it is what it looks like, it is treason and only trump himself so brass-faced and thinking himself above any law whatsoever would have had the gall to attempt such a shameful exhibition of treachery. Hence a fifteen minute walk-out with Kju and a huge banquet gone to waste, as all scripted by his Master so that Putin can sweep in, wipe up and gain influence.

So therefore I consider the bbc r4 ‘Any Questions’ invited panel to have made serious omissions in regarding trump and the dreaded visit. Lots of pontificating but they didn’t get to the main moral and ethical arguament. Basically the baseline is that trump is repulsive.

It baffled me later in the day on extended news when we had a few words from a pundit telling us how popular trump is, how great his base in America, this I doubt; bbc r4 news bias always endeavours to bend any objective truth to trumps advantage, luckily ‘The World Tonight’ programme at 10pm is a little bit more realistic.

hilary and biden capable of so much, wiki/Xi_Jinping and xi working to enter the mainstream, the forward moving world, but trump when he ’emerges’ is nothing but a bigot hell bent on turning the clock back to darker days.
