The silence is deafening …

I leave the kitchen window open at nights but never any moths; a serious decline that in the UK is bereft of significant data in the last five years.

Here I am this morning trying to find recent posts for the frightening decline of moths and as with say west coast USA Pacific seabird decline there is very little recent material. UK moth decline reporting mostly dries up five years ago and the sea bird decline mentioned ‘falls off a cliff’ from two years ago when massive numbers were driven onto land before all perished. Near impossible to find current data. The silence is deafening.  I suspect there are forces at work to hinder propogation of current news of how things are; most certainly we know that the USA has gagged all scientists at the EPA, which in my view is a most certain admission that trump knows full well that climate change is real and catastrophic, hence his desire for the wall and its inevitable militarisation etc etc.  Witness diatoms, witness Pacific die-back and the poison from Fukushima.

Wake up sheeple !!

The time lag between what is happening right now with climate and it reaching the open public forum is too slow, too late. Funny how trump goes on about ‘fake news’ when in fact a monumental effort is being made by unanswerable powers including himself to do just that !!

Incidentally, the continuing ‘moronisation’ of household gardens certainly annoys me, does not help nature whatsoever; the endless stripping of any growing thing to a sterile patch of gravel, block paving and crushed slate is moronic beyond belief. As decades progress the average not particularly talented gardener has lost what little ingenuity they once had. Theres little thought or attention to a succession of flowering things throughout the year. Likewise much street lighting and household security lighting could be scaled back. For instance, roads lit where no pedestrian ever goes and all cars have headlights anyway !

Regarding bees … is it commonly known that with increased CO2 pollen and green growing things are now a third less valuable as protein ?? Think of bees carrying home nowadays ‘junk food’ where at one time this would be high value material, this limits their ability to survive winter. We also need to alter human diet, this meat obsessed ‘affluent diet’ needs to be modified, its damaging the planet. Its tedious and sickening to see oversized white men drooling over overstuffed burgers, meanwhile planning their next longhaul holiday destination. Carbon footprint boys and girls, carbon footprint !!!

Anyway, some good quality links …

WordPress likes a picture so heres one from three years ago in my garden.

Postscript 17th May 2018. Regarding media manipulation. Maybe half a dozen times to different people I’ve pointed upwards to the sky not really getting anywhere and today it was a revelation.

“Oh you don’t believe in that mind control” ….

Uh??

“Of course not but what I am saying is that those straight lines that haze and merge are not conventional aircraft trails, they’re full of aluminium and organic growers are having problems with it, its also why California burned the way it did.”

(Remember …. Monsantos GM patents include aluminium resistance).

So who the heck is talking abt mind control? As with the first two people I mentioned this to and avid Fox News fans, as I did determine from that encounter there is conscious effort to broadcast material that ridicules the ‘look at the chemtrail’ people. I’m an engineer and used to producing solutions where there isn’t a guide book, no flow chart to help me with never encountered often unique ‘one-off’ problems. Its called thinking and using ones eyes; developed skill, insight, experience. But theres often precious little of that nowadays, third and fourth generation tv fed leisure obsessed sheeple are lost, often quite brainless. The obvious broadcast of derogatory material specifically intended to ridicule anyone that questions something ‘not right’  indeed is nasty and explains why its so difficult to get ppl to look up and take notice, if already they are conditioned to think its silly ‘mind control’.  Thats why its so difficult, they have been set against any such enquiring mind by it being framed in the media as a crackpot notion. Framed to automatically be seen as a nutcase enthusiasm. You see, theres no tv in this house so how wld I know their prior knowledge is so affected, so conditioned to ridicule and disregard my concern?

This week starting in Cumbria on Monday under the west coast flight path and now its Friday in the NE of England its been chemtrail spraying everyday. This was ineveitable as we’d been granted a fortnight of clear blue to get things going in the Merry Month of May. I wonder what I’ll be reporting in a year, two and three years from now ? With jet stream alteration and the cooling effect of the Arctic near to extinction its maybe this year and next when Americas mid and Eastern food production will be severely diminished. Realise too that plant transpiration is down ie CO2 to O conversion as well as the contribution from diatoms which has fallen most significantly. Think ‘feedback loops’. So much always happening out of sight (and out of mind) in a most wonderful interconnected web of nature but those days are gone.

*I was tempted to post a youtube here but to be honest who the hell has half an hour to throw away when the text as a document could be read in a tenth of the time. Thats the problem … too much time taken ‘watching something’ ……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arctic ice loss 2018 latest …

I’ve no need to post much, by autumn 2018 the news itself will have explained the horribleness of the increasing situation. Last year was a dip from the upcurve, 2018 will hit hard. Much reporting is hesitant, population crashes etc or as the case of north Pacific seabirds near absent when the noise of the problem should be deafening. Its realistic to say that ‘sightings’ do not mean the population or distribution were as in the past. As with the seabirds ‘then there were none’.  A ‘huddle’ is not any indication of distribution.

Even at the small direct scale of my own garden front and back I look around and see very little planted in other gardens to benefit wildlife. Last evening sat under my in full blossom plum tree the bees sounded wonderful. Yet I look at other gardens and see a highly restricted repertoire, restricted diversity, mostly a reflection of no real enthusiasm, depth or ability at gardening. A little but not a lot. My next door neighbour has a garden devoid of any flowering thing, third time scraped with a digger and now a foot below mine; as dead as the back lot at the crematorium, a symphony to block paving, gravel and laid turf. Meanwhile at the pit heap due to my simple efforts a couple of hundred cowslip benefit bees and in a few weeks a thousand orchids and multiplying will likewise help a little, as with the other twenty species I’ve introduced; umbellifers, foxglove, flag iris, avens and honeysuckle being the most successful.

Whoops, above 400ppm for CO2 …. http://arctic-news.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/

Note increased CO2 has reduced plant and pollen protein by say a full third.

 

 

Our local Park …

Its a wonderful space up here in Northumberland in an anotherwise often very humdrum non-descript environment but some clot or bunch of clots called The Council Authority in the name of improvement are lowering the value of the place. I mean those who are in charge that think they are clever but by a wide margin ‘miss the point’. They apparently occupy a paid role but often bring little or no talent. And now they tell us they are ‘spending millions’ to upgrade !!

Heres how NOT to manage for wildlife and insects :-

  • Places where grass can grow undisturbed a full twelve months are targetted with needless strimming. Butterflies and moths need to be undisturbed, likewise their eggs.
  • Old timber is ruthlesly eradicated in this ‘new plan’ … the best food source for birds now being eradicated.
  • Old timber offers overwintering for butterflies and moths.
  • Endless pulverised wood is now carpetting the ground where for all the years previously  blackbirds would pick over the leaf litter, in fact a colony of blackbirds.
  • Trees thinned out, so we lose that particular ‘tree place’ feel and instead can gawk at the little rows of houses all around, can see right through and across the Park. This has devalued the place. Even the unusual red flowering hawthorn at the Tech entrance cut out and gone.

In each instance the amount of habitat seems not of great importance, but it is this over-clean so-called modern practice/requirement that is chipping away at all niche locations so in the end it will all be gone. Considering that even elementary eradication of self sown sapling ash is utterly beyond them, as horticulturists its quite stupid to throw such money and disturbance and denigration of resource to this one place this Park where in fact the general ‘streetscape’ most certainly could do with some help.

Why do I seem always to be the lone voice, as if no-one else has any brain cells or any eyes in their head. Witness their hopeless cack-handed treatment of the sapling ash, cut way too far above earth so that masses of new buds can break forth, duuuhhh ….

Can you tell me what skill level this could be categorised when to all appearances it is ‘zero skill’.

Elsewhere on Council managed land we have over-zealous hedge cutting that renders hedgerows far too narrow for any bird to risk nesting there. A lost opportunity. Most  years I could find ten nests, these last five none. I’ve written to them about both locations, their answer if any a pointless one. Their fixed viewpoint being immovable.  Those in charge may have a little bit of education and training but their minds just ‘do not get it’.

Why I am concerned on these matters  … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/oct/18/warning-of-ecological-armageddon-after-dramatic-plunge-in-insect-numbers

My heart bleeds for all the birds that need insects as a food source, we can only assume populations are crashing.  Theres not a lot of material online at least as supplied by google, as if few people are actually engaged and publishing on these matters. I find the same problem re Pacific plankton dieback (from diatoms upwards in the food chain) and the crash of West Coast USA fisheries and ocean bird populations. With the latter we find it was two years ago when masses of birds were being washed ashore in Alaska and since then zilch, neither of birds found or published material. I made a charity donation to an Alaskan bird sanctuary but alas no response to my questions.

 

Postscript … is there a word to describe a manner of having an answer or so-called ‘solution’ thrown at me when the answer is in fact wrong or inappropriate? They mean well, imagine themselves to have solved the problem and like hearing themselves sound as if the problem is solved/ finished with. As if the soundbite is sufficient. I’ve witnessed this several times lately and I am increasingly wary;  I will not let go of something I consider or know to be incorrect, laxity is not something acceptable in my world. My own work or trade needs that I be 100% correct, theres no room for mis-interpretation or other than bang-on correct answers; pain and admonition, loss of face and a reprimand would soon occur, likewise my own personal standards will have been dragged down. Even Doctors don’t have this rigour, surgeons yes but GPs no. Looks like ‘thinking’ and common sense are becoming hard to find.

Chemtrails UK today …

Its Sunday 8th April and I stupidly slept in, first observation and pic taken at 0745 … v obvious chemtrails and 50% – 60% of hazing taking effect. At 0900 completely fugged / hazed. One would never have guessed what had been happening, neither would my neighbours. And I can tell my garden is suffering, peculier leaf burn too.

I decided to use my brain and went to online aircraft radar and yup what I see above leaving chemtrail is what I can see on the screen circa 0805. Lets assume theres no disparity, nothing covert or concealed other than the non-admittance to what, frequency and likely outcome of so much nano particle aluminium, barium, strontium, etc and its effects on green growing things as well as humans and bees etc.

So I invented a trick, using x36 replay from 0535 until 0741 and even in our liddle iddy biddy map of remote England I sketched a full x300 flight paths in the two hour playback, probably more as they are coming incredibly ‘thick and fast’ ! I was flabbergasted and to be honest frightened. Any CO2 stays with us forever and this proves the aviation lobby and the use of aviation is utterly obscene. Its ironic really, the only populations on this Earth that COULD live sustainably ie Thirld World poor are in fact the very populations that will be lost when sea level rises and food production fails. Which will happen quite soon.

James Lovelock at the end of his book ‘Gaia’ tells us that putting humans in charge of climate change is like putting a goat in charge of the garden.

To quote James Lovelock …”I would sooner expect a goat to succeed as a gardener than expect humans to become responsible stewards of the Earth” unquote.

Consumerism, advertising, pre-packaged foods, airflights, our love affair with motor transport and distribution, fragmented multiple duplication of parcel delivery, consolidation and centralisation of production, plastic ‘everything’, the un-wholesome endless Economic reach for growth and profits, white men in the boardroom, hubris ….  all these things appear to be unstoppable and contribute to our downfall. And meanwhile trump fiddles  ….

 

Realise also the GM crops (non-fertile seed so even the poorest farmer has to go back every year for more) have patents written as being tolerant of unbonded ‘free’ aluminium as per chemtrails.

Above is at least x300 counted flightpaths in two hours early Sunday morning northern UK 0535 – 0741BST. Interesting to see set patterns or routine corridors. Above is using a whiteboard marker with set at x36 speed replay. Its all free. No wonder I see so many to the south, we are at the intersection. Interestingly without the free online radar I would never ever have guessed at so much airborne activity from what is visible to me. Would be interesting to plot per hour in 24.

That is NOT natural.

Postscript: Twelve hours later in the evening I try a re-run and the radar replay is not working. A full twenty four hours later I replay the two hour plot and exclude edge of horizon activity to the west ie anything left of centre, which I wld assume wld give me say half ie  x150 flightpaths (this time not counting anythat land within the one airport in the frame. Curious difference, count is now around thirty three only ie a tenth and nothing in the centre of the scren and likewise nothing in what were dense activity. Heres the pic of the plots …. a supposed exact re-run of the initial plot.

P1350954

Forget about what was on the left, same time period, same map configuration; upper right hand is what I’m concerned about, everything right of logo.

To communicate this data as a grid start zero in left upper. One solitary path for at left 3 down to 10 easting at top, when yesterday two hours maybe 20 or 30 on that path alone, all spaced a little not the exact same line travelled. Ditto 5 easting from bottom to 6 easting top one flight indicated when there would be thirty.

Etc etc  … a vast anomoly.

Which replay is correct ??

As far as I can see no-one has done the whiteboard marker before.

This is an experiment that needs to be conducted a few times more. For instance all over haze early on, at 0800 brightening to blue so …. (wait for it)  … chemtrails starting to the south toward the local city.

 

Postscript 17th May 2018. Regarding media manipulation. Maybe half a dozen times to different people I’ve pointed upwards to the sky not really getting anywhere and today it was a revelation.

“Oh you don’t believe in that mind control” ….

Uh??

“Of course not but what I am saying is that those straight lines that haze and merge are not conventional aircraft trails, they’re full of aluminium and organic growers are having problems with it, its also why California burned the way it did.”

(Remember …. Monsantos GM patents include aluminium resistance).

So who the heck is talking abt mind control? As with the first two people I mentioned this to and avid Fox News fans, as I did determine from that encounter there is concious effort to broadcast material that ridicules the ‘look at the chemtrail activists’. That indeed is nasty and explains why its so difficult to get ppl to look up and take notice. Thats why its so difficult, they have been set against any such enquiry by it being framed in the media as a crackpot notion. Framed to automatically be seen as a nutcase enthusiasm. You see, theres no tv in this house so how wld I know their prior knowledge is so affected, so conditioned to ridicule my concern?

 

 

 

 

A bad spring for growing things …

I was stunned yesterday when by chance I looked at old pictures of my garden for mid March seven years ago. Already at that time many things were thriving and in flower that at present this year are backward and nowhere near flowering even a fortnight later, oxlips and dog tooth violets ( Erythronium) demonstrated this clearly. Cautiously I’d say its a one month delay but also there doesn’t seem to be the vigour of previous years.  Bulbs are okay’ish but anything relying on leaves and light to bring it on are much backward.

A great maxim of mine has always been “Its all about light” this being particularly pertinent to the siting of plants and what will grow where. Hands-on practical experience, trial and error form my views over several decades.

So its obvious ‘things are backward’ this year, strange when in the last decade gardeners and horticulturists have been observing the opposite, ie things are advanced. All I can  assume is that the frequent chemtrail spraying of this year so far that turns what should be clear days into hazy nothingness has wreaked its dark magic. Easter was clear of it until Sunday afternoon (1st April as photos below) when it was obvious man-made trails were being laid.

This covert and unwanted activity is most divisive among friends, as the pictures show the haze and so-called cloud are very deinitely not natures making, yet folk who should know better ridicule my drawing attention to this. Maybe Fox News has a  greater hold on them than I realised.

Its generally considered that these chemtrails incorportae aluminium, barium and strontium. My previous pics of here in the UK … https://climate-change-briefing.com/2018/02/22/weather-modification-uk/

 

 

 

Bottom two at right are Sunday 1st April 18:27

Bottom left is 24th March 15:52

Top left is 9th March 10:02

Top right is 20th March 13:30

Right middle is 20th March 13:54

For instance top left 9th March 2018 above, my diary tells me bright blue sky at 0800, chemtrails by 0900, blue again at 10am with very noticable fast turbulence.

March 20th was obvious chemtrails 12-3pm on a previous bright blue sky. Next day early morning was a peculier ‘quilted’ cloud effect uniform and everywhere. Light effect noticably ‘odd’.

Here we don’t ordinarilly expect these aircraft on these flightpaths. Here below is my usual checklist to try to raise awareness of the not-natural effects in the sky from chemtrail spraying.

  • Aircraft trails where normally never seen.
  • Trails do not disappear as they should normally.
  • Trails connect to produce overall haze.
  • Sometimes as quick as 10-20 mins later all hazed over.
  • No longer a blue sky as assumed and expected an hour earlier.
  • Note parallel tracks or peculier bends and even 90deg  turns.
  • In extreme cases the sky can ‘morph’ or change rapidly every 5 – 10 mins.
  • Note metallic sheen to light.

Bee decline …

Via the Grauniad we learn …

2017 av yield per hive in the UK = 11.8kg (down 1kg from last year).

1950’s typical yield 25-45kg per hive.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/oct/23/steady-decline-honey-crop-raises-concern-honeybees-future

I quote  … “Our survey shows that suburban gardens and urban roof tops produce some of the best honey crops, so how we garden really can make a difference.” unquote.

Yes indeedy and increasingly gardens are turned over to gravel and paving! Even ‘gardening’ itself and the cultivation of flowering plants is becoming very much a ‘minority activity’ and certainly hardly ever at the intensity nature deserves. My own place is incredible and so it should be, I’ve a talent and interest in such things. Many people ie fourth generation tv sufferers are sooo utterly clueless.

 

 

Heres a quick list that will establish the ‘bare bones’ of a planted garden …

Arabis, Aubretia, Phlox and Campanula (prostrate form).

‘Tete-a-tete’ min daffs (do not plant too deep)  tulips, crocus (also C. tomassinianus is good for naturalising) useful to plant when bought ‘in flower’.  For autumn bulb planting place sticks for when you buy the bulbs in autumn – (my idea). Never mulch crocus with garden compost, it rots them (my idea again …) use bonemeal.

Foxgloves, Campanula (lge form), perennial Phlox upright form.

Hellebore- many varieties/ flowers to choose from.

Let some Buxus (box) grow to clipped shapes – good for nesting.

Witch Hazel, Forsythia, Buddleia.

Pref smaller form of Clematis for a fence, my fav is Rouge Cardinale.

Apple in form of a ‘standard’ for the small garden. Alkso try some raspberry canes, but be warned they ‘run’.

Note in small trees/ shrubs/ fruit trees look and enquire as to the ‘rootstock’ this influences eventual size, a small M. Stellata can work v well but a M. soulangeana can be massive. Be wary of potbound slow moving hardly selling stock at the garden centres, likewise freshly potted on perennials that in fact hardly have sufficeint root ball – I’ve been misled on this several times. Beware of supermarket (used to be Woolies style) type plants, weak, forced, not hardy. Ditto newspaper offers – theres always a catch! Also ‘gan canny’ with the amount of homemade compost, its not all it seems, its the soil itself that matters and some leaf litter and organic debris works best. BBC r4 Gardeners Question Time in my opinion fails to realise this.

Lets also add Hebe, Flag Iris or a blue scented form, Fritillaria in any form, Bergenia for snails and the thrush. But beware of smaller forms of Allium (big forms are fine) as they are beyond ‘rampant’ in spreading ie to become a problem, not easy to limit.

Late additions : Delphinium, Honeysuckle (good for moths if there are any left, another serious decline),

Greenland Ice Sheet 2018 …

Googling image search for the above term seems to provide material other than a straightforward text search, perhaps the image has tags that drift toward my chosen term.

Below we read of new studies and the hopelessness of the IPCC Climate Model. In its defence I would say its a useful rallying point and focus of attention yet admittedly it is hopelessly off course.

https://www.nbcnews.com/science/environment/bad-news-florida-models-greenland-ice-melting-could-be-way-n268761

The inter-connectedness of all manner of climate aand natural systems really is staggering. On the web generally we also have a problem with whatever slant or denial is woven into the text therefore the reader has to put their brain into gear to recognise what viewpoint is being promoted. To people that seldom read more than a few words onscreen this will be a problem for them, a widespread problem and getting worse. A case presented as first entry google (no link here) full well tells us of Greenland ice loss yet appears to deny any form of increased CO2 being a major factor. It sort of shoots itself in the foot as for whatever reason for this ice loss (and they forcefully promote data of geothermal ie underfloor heating) we are in a bad situation. So perhaps instead of outright denial of a situation the clever way is to weave it into something else. Crafty! The comments particularly are ‘loony’ but we can see quite clearly their silliness and their unimportance. We can notice this all over the web, information but sometimes is actually ‘disinformation’ in its bias I assume with intent to mislead. And I’ve met sane quite happy people adamant their Fox News view of the world is the correct one! Up till now I always maintained the old subject of Rhetoric was much neglected, now I can see being taught to evaluate ‘comparative texts’ is desperately needed.

Who are these people that go out of their way to deny the data, to run counter to what is happening? So energetic to promote their own fixed ‘angle’ when enlightened scientific opinion shows otherwise. A case in point is the reduced transpiration of green growing things due to present levels of CO2 ie less cooling, less conversion to O. Likewise searching for sea bird death in Alaska suddenly halts at two years ago, since then next to nothing available. Bee and insect decline, the former being found with high levels of unbonded ie free aluminium which ties in with climate engineering / chemtrails. By the time ‘studies’ prove this that or the other it will be woefully too late.
