Nature links …

A worthwhile browse, some good news mixed with the less good and the catastrophic.

I generally introduce a source or link therby building a library of links, I seldom repeat a source and I hope others can scroll down over my posts and see what is latest.

 

For instance my idea …. make a model of planet Earth, an eight inch football and our usable space is the thickness of a cigarette papet ie one thousandths of an inch ( 0.001in ).

Watch the ice …

Succinct and direct vid and also illustrates the flow outwards of ice into the North Atlantic. I wld have liked more written text but I assume format precludes, its an intentional brief hit of info.

Note also that its thickness that matters, from above we can still see some of the whiter older ice but at what thickness? Likewise Grenland, likewise everywhere. Here 7th Dec NE England its far too warm this morning, car thermometer tells me 10deg C.

Mass extinction … trying to understand.

Look at the contributors, for instance … Paul Erlich.

Not many bees this last year, no hubble of flies as I walk along late summer country lanes. The little critturs go first …. go ask a diatom.

Then the birds will fail and as above the pollinators and meanwhile some twat at 5G tells us how lucky we are ….

I am so glad I do not live in a city.

 

Chemtrails UK … a diary.

Tuesday 4th December 2018 and from early on its chemtrails all day here in the NE of England. Of med / lowish activity but trails always visible in the sky all the day in at least a minimum of two quarters at any time.

It baffles me why lay chemtrails when the days are increasingly colder anyway? As I assume and have gleaned online they are to prevent warming of the planet, which from my few months of experience means Feb to September.  As with the topic itself its all a hazy, conflicting subjective arena. It was only a year ago Nov 2017 I tuned in to climate change and Feb 2108 that I realised the chemtrail phenomena.

Needing to travel / be mobile Tuesday precluded taking many pics, heres sufficeient to give the idea …. I would term the days chemtrail activity just below what would induce fast change cloud turmoil; a HP day as indicated on the barometer. Note last Thursdays experiment where aircraft where repeatedly flying along the same corridor and the resultant dramatic change in the clouds and weather that I surmise was the result.

Greta Thunberg …

Go for it!

I’m so happy to see this activism.

The problems we now face are beyond anything we could ever have imagined fifty years ago or have contemplated would ever have to be grappled with in any ‘modern’ society. As if by our modernity we are above such things. But it is precisely our so-called twentieth / twenty first century modernity that has brought about such things ie the burning of fossil fuels. So God we can assume never meant for use to insist we all have a pick-up or an SUV or jet around on holidays and timeshares and family villas in other countries. God I mean as the final arbiter, the sense of knowing we are fckd.

Its like being in class, no-one individually wants to sit upright or exercise endless silence during lesson BUT as a corpus a body we must. I’m not at all sure we’ll get out of this, its do-able but means a step back two (or three) generations in comfort and convenience. We now have the ‘me’ and the ‘I want’ mindset, particularly among those with a little bit of financial advantage. How shall we wean them from their burgers? Or more specifically – you can only eat what you grow yourself !!! This would mean our ancient ancestors were so much cleverer than ourselves. Yes we have dumbed own. Imagine, instead of ‘all you can eat for $10’ we changed to ‘all you can eat in 12 months’ of horticultural activity.  We wld be lithe, slim, alert.

Seriously though, these now are problems beyond anything we have encountered previously.

Its a new urgency. And therefore bullshitters the like of trump need to be put in their place.

That bloody term ‘bleaching’ …

You mean the Bryozoans have given up, expired.

This falsity and laxness vexes me. And what of their symbiotic relationship with from what i have read … diatoms ?

ie …

So maybe we can say that the Bryozoans are the aquatic canary in the coal mine?
