As foretold.

This newer replacement stack with Windows 10 does not help me get at new information so easily as XP, I feel distanced and I am not being presented the latest discussions. But then again we know where climate change is going. There is so much that is not reported, my own fascination with diatoms is central to the climate change arguament but no-one mentions them. Invisible to the naked eye, yet are responsible for 70% of the worlds oil and gas resources, (were) as oceanic algae responsible for DMS production, something which is essential for ocean cloud systems … a point which only last week is termed ‘news’ when in fact none of the scientific modelling even included !!! Beggars belief. Has no-one even remembered reading James Lovelock or have looked and learned about algae through a microscope? Diatom demise is the reason for coral reef decline.

Likewise Paris and the IPCC does not even include methane release in its (near worthless) predictions. I’ve a one-sided wager with a friend that we are the wrong side of 3 deg by end of 2026, which means catastrophe and our certain demise and my £1k will be safe, not that its going to be of any use, apart from some oxygen bottles and some synthetic food, all quite futile. trumps approach to climate change needs to be regarded as a War Crime.

Ponder on the problems of an absent or interrupted electrical supply, moving money and people, web, communications, sewage, water etc.

As an antidote to present and forthcoming stress I found this youtube v useful, I don’t have the ability (or patience) to sit quietly and watch in linear fashion, but hopping along I got what I could.

Note at night time its an all enveloping dark, and sleep comes quickly and easily. Contemplation comes easy and a good book would be treasured. Many times at my favourite place I have stood and delighted in the landscape around me as daylight turns to dusk and then to a starry night; quite magical, impressive and always a joy.

arctic methane.

Arctic methane is the biggie, on a ten year timescale x120 more potent then CO2 … this we know already from many sources online, I mean blogs and material from sensible people not alarmist junk of which the latter I tend to avoid.

Explaining to a new friend yesterday its not just the two and three deg C rise by at my guess 2026 (I’ve a £1k wager on this for 3C+ by end 2026) that will in itself hurt us ie its just a hotter day to endure … BUT its the effect on world interconnected natural systems with locked in feedbacks and associated drives that respond at such fine-scale limits that will alter this biosphere to become un-livable, this literally one thou inch thick biosphere on an eight inch diameter childs football.  This is thinner than any layer of modern varnish, more like the old fashioned shellac.  Already the jet stream has split into two loops and is streaming hot moist air over the Arctic. My guess is that the end of the greenland ice sheet I quote “By 2100” as bandied in the general press is woefully overestimated; the nature of ice melt is a law unto itself.

Note that of recent years no-one is bandying the expression that ‘nature is resilient’ anymore …

8 inch dia = 8k miles dia of planet Earth

therefore .001 in (one thou inch) = 1 mile approx.

cigarette paper = 0.001 in (copier paper is 0.004 in)

And still diesel drivers idle their engines all day, at work, at supermarkets whilst waiting, during lunchbreaks etc etc.

So much if not all of our CO2 to O conversion shuts down at increased CO2 levels, it does not / can not ‘rise to the occasion’, ie green plants and forests, diatoms, algae.  Likewise my particular ‘hobby horse’ and fascination with diatoms is a critical factor, the irony of using ancient deposits of oil and gas mainly derived from diatoms has led to their own and our demise, see also the loss of the symbiotic relationship of diatoms to bryozoans ie coral reef.  No-one has ever seen with the naked eye a diatom yet nearly all of our petrol and oil carbon lifestyle is based upon them.

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.

Seabird populations …

Its difficult to get up-to-date information on this, i am also ‘stuck for time’; three and four years ago there was massive Pacific seabird collapse and likewise with oceanic diatom collapse whenever I ask online questions I never get a reply.

Lets start with …

Esquire and links…

The Esquire article holds worthwhile links to get a grip on climate change, it would benefit donald j trump enormously to get a handle on this  ….

https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a26077427/trump-tweet-midwest-cold-global-warming/

With warming oceans you can forget abt the marine food chain, lower strata and indispensable diatoms, algae, plankton hardly get mentioned yet are crucial. Its my opinion its diatom collapse that we’ve lost coral reef, its a symbiotic relationship and have yet to find one article stating this case.  Its burning the oil and gas remains of diatoms that has led us to this predicament, ironic in the extreme. A few months ago i posted a ‘make a model of planet Earth’ whereby the usable space ie a mile total on this planet is represented by a one thousandths of an inch cigarette paper moistened onto the surface of a kids eight inch diameter football. Scale one thou inch equals one mile. A lot of the ice is melting from below, as when kids, we are so suprised next day its gone. As Sam Carana tells us its when grain production fails that we will really be in a predicament. Its as if everything we have, nature etc is merely a scummy film ready to be wiped off.

trump is a dickhead of an extreme and dangerous kind, seems theres a word to express his wish to incubate, spread and render viable the worst of ignorance for the common masses i mean those people he cares not one jot for other than poll and voting numbers … the spread of ignorance agnotology.

 

postscript : here a link from the above Esquire article, near total absence of insects and butterflies from Puerto Rican forest as visited by scientific professionals  ie 98% of ground dwelling insects are gonehttps://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jan/15/insect-collapse-we-are-destroying-our-life-support-systems

 

 

Aluminium and earthworms …

I’ve done lots with the microscope over the years and need help in finding how increased aluminium levels are affecting earthworms. In turn this draws in the problems all insects and invertebrates and microscopic life in soil, everything. But I cannot find anything up to date. Its further compounded that chemtrails and  aluminium accumulation are still regarded as a highly subjective even suspect area of enquiry. ….. talk about fiddling whilst Rome burns!

If worms and microscopic soil life, molds, bacteria, diatoms, algae etc are much reduced then conventional agriculture is highly compromised. Earth, the soil mixture that allows us to raise plants and crops, herbs etc is a wonderful thing, even the smell of it has a specific reason and name.  I wonder how much if at all the average school pupil gets to hear of this, not as some droning ‘it has to be done’ part of a curricula but as something to be excited about, to wish to know more?

To start the ball rolling, I intend to add to this search for the compromise on soil life re inc aluminium levels and hope others can contribute  …..

let me paste his letter here, I quote…

Greeting to all from Francis:

We got sweep nets to check out local insects, as we have not been seeing the usual. For the last 3 years terrestrial bugs have been about 20% of normal populations. This year the populations appear to be about 10% of normal. The most populous are the true bugs and aphids, suckers, while the chewers are nearly absent except for a very few grasshoppers of the flying locust type.

The aquatics have been about 10% of normal, except in springwater areas, for 5 years. The types that live in mud are particularly absent. The trout are in poor condition, and the size of wild fish has generally declined in local streams. I wll go fishing as usual, but when I catch something, it usually has only a few terrestrial like ants in the stomach, and is usually a hatchery fish.

I’m just reporting what my sampling has found. I very much hope this is just a long-term anomaly, but I am beginning to suspect it is not because the effects are so widespread. Point pollution affects only one stream. Air pollution affects them all, and I suspect its the Welsbach elements.

O Lord, may I be all wrong about this. BF”

Thats a start, this post re aluminium and earthworms is a work in progress.

Incomplete food chain …

In the well produced and I assume well financed vid below it is in error for not including and stressing the importance of the smaller earlier but totally essential diatoms and algae, leading to protozoa and phytoplankton and zooplankton. Four and five successive and distinct layers in which  none of them can be dispensed with, until now of course and therefore the marine food chain will and apparently is collapsing.

For instance the massive seabird collapse three / four years ago, largely unexplained, buried as news, we do know massive numbers flew inshore a total contradiction to their habit and their stomachs were empty, they were starving.

Never does anyone talk of diatoms but heres a comment i made today for the embed below and it sums up the matter well…

I quote …. “Great job BUT …. is that sea floor greatly depleted (I don’t know the area)… also you MUST please include diatoms and plankton in the food chain, without them none of this exists. Diatoms also provide 20% of the worlds CO2 to O conversion and ironically its burning the ancient diatom accretions of oil and gas that have led to their and our impending demise. Seventy percent of our oil and gas is of diatom origin. The irony is tragic. Diatoms are microscopic and to paraphrase trump “Who would have tought something so small was so important” ….
