Since mid spring I’ve guessed my garden plants are growing taller, bluebells seem taller, daffodills, as does Leucojum (spring snowflake) tulips too but what prompted me to log in and write a quick post re garden plants seemingly taller this year was seeing a few minutes ago the burgeoning and soon to flower Aqueliga in my garden, definitely taller.
This apparent phenomena has bugged me for a couple of months now. Fertiliser or nitrogen has not been applied, other than a dressing of fish blood and bone which I do twice a year anyway. We know that with inc CO2 initially things will grow bigger, it acts as a nitrogen feed but after a certain point is the enemy of growing plants, soft useless growth and eventually the plant is strangled so to speak. Realise combined plant/tree demise and the loss of ocean algae ie diatoms will be the end of us, this is a truism, undeniable planetary mechanics and interactions of this beautiful chemistry set called planet Earth. Its an incredibly fortunate and harmonious mix we have of atmospheric gases and things (and us) that can function in such a scenario. Luck or God, I’m not sure and increasingly plumb for the latter.
As is usual the scientists seem behind the curve, theres only so many waking hours and googling for things is increasingly my less preferred activity.
I’d had an inkling this can happen and the image here for south of England and English Channel chemtrail 15th Feb 2023 ie yesterday really does eliminate the data I would like to have been able to view.
The image below on NASA Worldview terra/Modis setting is a huge amount of chemtrail activity, remember this is a snapshot in time not a rolling update (as far as I am aware). On the day of the event other filters can take several hours before the image reveals itself. One wonders if some sort of ‘cleaning up’ is happening.
In the chemtrail sat imagery below at right I would say its ALL chemtrail activity. Easy to do actually as if you click on to something like flightradar24 the sky is absolutely full of aircraft activity. I cannot believe this can be explained away as ‘ice crystals’ or upper atmosphere reaction to aircraft engine exhaust. Surely it points to a decision being made to on this time and day to add this sky whitening effect deliberately. In the future chemtrail sky whitening will have to be formally introduced as we will lose a lot of existing weather pattern/ cloud formation. If the upper ‘cloud decks’ that roll in from the Pacific which protect the complete run of west coast north and south America disappear as Guy McPherson over on http://www.arctic-news.blogspot then it will entail a catastrophic temperature rise, this trigger will be increased CO2 and remember the increasing and inevitable methane release being much more potent than CO2 (short term x200 and x1000 say if talking in weeks) … means basically we are snookered.
Into the mix and I haven’t actually read this stated as such at least cannot recall anyone mentioning the fact that as CO2 and methane increase there will / must be a corresponding decline in the CO2 cycle as plankton ie diatoms disappear from the oceans, it is only recently that scientists are admitting its probable that diatoms are responsible for half the worlds breathable oxygen. A tragic irony as 70% of the worlds oil and gas is derived from ancient diatom deposits.
Diatoms gone = marine food chain inoperable.
Diatoms gone = every other breath of oxygen no longer available.
There will no doubt be massive fires, huge loss of oxygenating plant life and I hate to say it as I wish no-one any harm a rise in tectonic activity / re-adjustment of plates. Again …. snookered! One could say that whoever devised this bundle of skin and bone to functioning systems will probably now be disgusted at where we have arrived. The human race and Organised Capital demands progress which as in the standard Western Model is now a complete system of achieving so called ‘success’ but how else can it be, there is an obsession (with organised capital) of innovation, growth, market share. Often I feel the unethical grab of obscene profit margin or mark-up can never be justified, to my mind there should be a regulatory guidance to permissable profit margin, likewise my detestation of ‘ornery folk turning themselves into IR35 Ltd Co’s and opting out of paying fair taxes is detestable, a swinging cop-out, but thats another subject. I’m unsure of the figures but we’ve walked upright since five or seven million years ago and its only three hundred years of a modern activity for us to upset the chemistry set and physical interactions of this world to turn itself against us. I don’t normally write in this manner but the realisation of the very simple cross-over CO2 / CH4 and O graph that seems not to be alluded to elsewhere really does set us in a far more dire position than most folk realise. What makes me particularly sad is so much beauty in the natural world, both macro and microscopic will I assume be lost.
Q. How quickly will terrestrial plant life react to a fast diminishing oxygen count?
Q. How quickly will planktonic life and particularly diatoms disappear, I reckon weeks once a tipping point is crossed, they are sensitive ‘niche’ organisms. Look at the now collapsed symbiotic relationship of algae and bryozoans that were at one time coral reef. This is a screaming alarm bell more profound than anyone is admitting.
Q. How many times this year and next will we see the horror of the recent Turkey/ Syria earthquakes repeated?
Q. It will only take one harvest to be ruined by changing weather patterns for the world to be thrown in turmoil, the USA burger obsession will come to an abrupt halt. And probably I assume Chinas pork production.
Q. Not really a question, a simple fact that ice melting rates are woefully under-reported or underestimated, we all know as kids how ice can flash off overnight and next morning as we look out the window and all is gone.
I remind people to visualise the crossover graph of increasing methane and diminishing oxygen, a double whammy so to speak or a logarithmic and catastrophic change in the breathable atmosphere.
We need a greater sense of urgency re climate change ie Arctic ice loss, diatom loss (eqiv CO2>O conversion for all terrestial green things).
So much junk is getting in the way, the Tories are intransigent with the state of the NHS, latest Tory sleazeball Nadhim Zahawi somehow carelessly overlooked £23 million quid etc etc and the stupidity of HS2 in this digital age beggars belief, its not anything to do with transporting goods, merely bums on seats.
Both COP extraveganzas last year will amount to little if anything and the IPCC are so backward and emasculated, quite irrelevant to latest scientific thinking. World ice expert Prof Peter Wadhams mostly side-lined/ forgotten.
There are so many realworld momentous changes occurring, interconnected features and feedback loops like a vast chemistry experiment now set into dire motion and a quite unfavourable realignment, a realignment that does not favour homo saps nor most living things of any sort, if diatoms are severely compromised which is the foundation of the marine food chain and CANNOT be circumvented as to their essential contribution then the cards on the table indicate enjoy your life as you can, live a good life but imho 2026 is the line in the sand.
Its hard to know where to start …
Jet stream altering, expect crazy weather patterns and food prodn greatly altered. You can forget burgers.
Diatoms are on the decline, a total loss wld be equiv to all terrestial plants and trees for CO2>O conversion. Google the irony of that … origin of 70% of all world oil reserves etc.
Arctic ice loss, to some extent remains but thickness disappearing fast. One day soon it will all ‘flash melt’ and be gone.
Ice-free Arctic by summer 2023 … looks likely. Place your bets!
El Nino slow to start from the quieter La Nina, looks set to peak with sunspot max 2026… oh dear!
Methane is trickling slowly, as yet quite docile though at historically max levels, we have yet to receive the predicted large releases, as a short term catastrophe much higher effect than many will admit say min x200 of CO2 and one could guess a short term effect x1,000 that of CO2. IPCC is in all respects ‘dumb’ on this; shame upon them.
With inc CO2 or methane all green growing things go into reverse and will not be able to help us when we need it.
Reduction of aerosol masking effect ie ‘going green’ does nothing but inc temperature. The irony of it! Maybe that is why chemtrail is sprayed, but as its mainly nano-particle aluminium (near gaseous in its diffusion) it is non-healthy and imho greatly exacerbates wild fires.
I subscribe to updates from carbonbrief.org and this just arrived in this morning. Makes for interesting reading, and pertinent to these last few weeks wishing this countrys leadership can get back to focusing on climate change, the elimination of poverty and coping with the future.
But lets also remind ourselves of COP26 Glasgow … what did it achieve?
Were the right people invited?
How will COP26 be viewed in hindsight?
In actual effect was it pointless?
One could be certainly justified in saying it was pointless, the IPCC we must remember does not factor in the effects of methane, something that can arrive as microbial activity, thawing methane hydrate previously locked as ice, and subsea ice itself thawing and allowing vent to previously trapped methane fields. Also, I find it erroneous when the multiplication factor of say 80x is bandied around for methane which is a projection over an incredibly generous time frame, in reality with a series of big releases in one season of thawing our time on this planet would be measured in months, and at that timeframe the methane effect must surely be many hundreds that of CO2.
This rolled up into a news story mid-December and quite rightly too but what no-one is mentioning is the monstrous tidal wave and subsequent follow-on ripples when the Thwaites Glacier drops into the sea. This is not an ‘if’, it is an absolute certainty, only question is ‘when’ … and probably a lot quicker than we have bargained for. The question is, how far around the globe will this tsunami from Thwaites actually penetrate?
We hear of the likes of Henry Dimbleby on bbc r4 this teatime informing us of the need to re-wild, the need to minimise meat consumption (yes I concur) but the arguament re methane in agriculture is quite tiny (and laughable) when one considers the likely many multiple ‘methane burps’ from the Arctic; our actions to remedy are a mere pin-prick and is JUST NOT worth the effort! As well as feel-good platitudes we need to evaluate quantities, realise the scale of what nature can throw at us. Then we’ll realise how we are wasting our time.
I’ve seen so-called ‘re-wilding’ and I suggest creating a better urban landscape, more competent gardens at home is a more valuable exercise.
It is pointless but lets pretend we are trying, we need ….
i) a one child policy.
ii) the near elimination of the American style burger culture.
iii) to live close/ local to our work.
I myself am a twit, no fridge, no washing machine (or tv or mobile) … but does my personal endeavour really help matters at all, not at all unless I can get half of every country in the world to do the same. Will they, not really and y’know it doesn’t even matter….
I’ve lain fallow on this for a few weeks following the damp squib of a wasted COP26 Glasgow, to let the dust settle so to speak, to reflect. The IPCC should hang their heads in shame.
The four years of a trump vested interest and an ‘in reverse’ shambles of what could only laughingly be called an ‘administration’ (note I deny him upper case) has not helped this planet or its peoples in any way whatsoever unless of course you are already an exceedingly rich US billionaire; lets face it millions are small change these days….
But trump is not a billionaire, no matter how crooked his schemes and evasions it has still left him hanging on propped up by debt from lenders of near last resort.
I worry about the Yemen, the inexcusable shambles of a deliberately callous Afghanistan withdrawl etc etc
In all this blog of say six hundred posts I reckon my sources are of good quality, will stand to scrutiny and illuminate and educate. Brave people, particularly in the USA, they face demotion or dismissal for speaking like this.
Heres two for climate change …
Note in the above from Dr Guy Macpherson his concern at the big hit from ozone depletion at 02:45 from rising sea level and hence the loss and destruction of nuclear generation (ie meltdown) and hence near instant ozone loss rendering the ‘out of doors’ uninhabitable. Its a chilling quote “The living will envy the dead” at 03:28. My own hobby horse is diatoms and the oceanic plankton that scrub half of the worlds carbon for us for free, all are near or are actually microscopic; trees and land based CO2 conversion will fail us I’m sure and unfortunately the plankton too. We’ve played with a world size chemistry set and it all appears inevitable. I found the link for the above on …. https://www.facebook.com/groups/arcticnews/
Here below is disturbing footage, note the blackened ice, note how beavers are colonising further north and flood the land / permafrost with their dams, the catastrophic opening of Arctic ocean seaways with accompanying noise pollution destroying marine mammal habitat and their ability to communicate and organise.
An occasional diary of lines in the sky for North East England, posting 18th Dec ’21.
Last few days mostly bright blue skies, often unseasonably warm and often lines in the sky which I’m classifying as chemtrail. Its pointless talking to anyone about this, with zero sum knowledge the average person will still refute any suggestion of mine.
These things classed chemtrail do not disperse quickly as per conventional condensation trail but persist and broaden as minutes and even the hour passes by, as proved yesterday afternoon and this morning at sunrise, pics below. Its assumed much elevated chemtrail aluminium levels are to blame for autism in CA kids, loss of smaller life forms in west coast USA streams and rivers, increased combustibility as per crazy wildfires, etc etc. Lets also think collapse of seabird population which is hardly mentioned, but if we lose the microscopic diatoms (of which we draw 70% of the worlds oil and gas from ancient deposits) we are speeding their demise and their vital function as carbon capture. All of this is scientifically verifiable ….. ask any professional diatomist ie the experts that are employed by oil exploration companies.
We’ve opened up a crazy box of interconnected feedbacks, we’ve played with something we shouldn’t. Glasgow COP26 was a travesty; waffle and humbug. A childs football is eight inch diameter, this corresponds at an inch per thousand miles, the usable space we have is one thousandths of an inch ie cigarette paper thin, a quarter thickness of 80gsm copier paper (ie the thin stuff).
This ‘whitening’ of the skies i suspect is going to be a near everyday experience here in North East England.
Fisrstly heres this morning ie 08:30 GMT Saturday 18th Dec 2021.
The above lasted in the sky for an hour or two, did not fade away anything like a regular ‘contrail’.
Above is late afternoon Friday 17th December, more obvious in reality, all the lines are chemtrail.
In the above NASA Worldview screenshot for 16th Dec ’21 my own experience tells me theres more chemtrail effect or presence than the raw tyro would appreciate, but over north east England and its coastline its obvious theres chemtrail and the maturing product of same.
Above is 15th Nov ’21 early morning, theres too much going on here for any well balanced individual to take pics of everything! Look carefully, theres several chemtrail plus chemtrail reaction ie a needless hazy obscured sky.
Chemtrail above, 19 Nov ’21 north east England. We had lots of chemtrail at around this time, half hidden at best.
This bugs me, for the first time ever I can hang out towels at 11pm just short of them dripping with a hand wring from a wash in my downstairs loo sink as per my usual routine (being sans washing machine at this location) and bingo next morning they are dry. This may be usual in say the Caribbean but is not the norm for the north east of England in mid November!
The year end of 2026 is the line in the sand I chose for what is tolerable and what is as mentioned to friend Gary the point at which I presume conditions may well become difficult indeed. COP26 has been an utter failure, who the hell handpicks these numskulls? Pundit Beckwith over on youtube includes footage and dreary as his presentations as ever are they do illustrate some very misleading presentations at COP26. Footnote: Paul, please try and assimilate NT manner and humour…. your fifteen minute vids are hell to get through.
COP26 seems to have utterly disregarded interconnected amplifying feedbacks and their importance, their many-fold increase over anything linear, ‘linear’ being the darling of COP26 and the emasculated head in the sand IPCC and the curse of NOT being able to get a grip on what really is happening.
One country India should not have been allowed to water down the COP26 statement re coal use, the general concensus and plain common sense dictates how we should proceed. Its no use the individual doing his or her best to minimise carbon footprint when its the big emitters and industries that must offer clout and crunch the big numbers.
A statement, merely something on paper, this is what men in suits do best, when will the scientists and engineers be given chance to show their best? I think an alternative to COP needs to be instigated, I would hope such a thing is happening right now. But if you read and listen to tone and the possible outcome of many experts on this, those at the sharp end with knowledge, direct observation and data they too think as I do that a vast chemistry set of reactions has been set in motion and I doubt theres much we can do. For instance look at jet stream, arctic warming, Greenland ice melt, ocean plankton, etc etc.
COP26 was feeble, an obfuscation, fiddling whilst Rome burns.
In all practicality with impending arctic methane and the interconnectedness of amplifying feedbacks its all just window dressing so to speak but as responsible adults and responsible nations we must do our best, we must never give up on this. Though it would be useful to think we could look back and think we did our best the scene set is not good and immediate practical effect of our efforts looks very poor indeed. One point five will soon look irrelevant to everyone, it will blow away in the breeze, but if it helps minds focus then so be it.
Watching silly billionaires pour their money into junk spaceflights and super yachts is uncomfortable to watch; shame upon them, pity we couldn’t boycott their activities, I never have been keen on Amazon anyway. A glorified shopkeeper!
note in the above the heat over vast at present still withheld gas reserves in northern Canada and likewise the heat exactly over the shallow Laptev Sea ie northern Siberia. In time and we are already in my opinion at that point the Arctic instead of cooling the planet will become a vast engine, an agency of heating, our enemy so to speak. Its only in recent years scientists are working out the worlds water circulation into the Arctic, the importance and danger between fresh and saline, warm and cold.
Ice is funny stuff, once huge bodies of it ie the Greenland ice sheet is most obviously melting with endless melt pools and rivers falling thousands of feet into the interior of the ice massif then theres nothing that in all practicality can be done to halt this process. In pure vengeance I’d like to winch trump and his cronies beneath a helicopter and dump them in the middle of the fast thawing wilderness, a childish idea perhaps, but for the harm and delay they have caused I think perfectly justifiable.
Watch out for methane which exists in three forms, vast trapped reserves, subsea frozen hydrate and as the result of a warming of ancient carbon deposits now being prompted to microbial activity. As repeated already the irony of burning ancient diatomaceous oil and associated gas deposits has led to their oceanic demise, thats half of the world CO2 conversion gone, increasing CO2 also means trees and green land based CO2 conversion activity will also decrease, its their natural reaction. Fun times ahead.
postscript, please read arctic-news.blogspot … here i copy and paste re methane and the IPCC total refusal to acknowledge its importance or apparently its existence !!!
copy and paste …”One of the largest threats is seafloor methane and despite repeated warning from some of the best experts in the field, the IPCC simply waves away this threat. This and other elements in the bar have been discussed in detail in many earlier posts such as this one and on the extinction page.”
