My friends the diatoms …

Anyone that knows me knows my interest, fascination and utter respect for diatoms.

Consuming their oil and gas (which provide us with 70% of the worlds reserves) has led to our decline and theirs also. The irony is profound, yet no-one has ever seen a diatom without a microscope. Once seen never forgotten, but a topic badly taught at schools, at our place a small north country Secondary School circa 1969-74 the science teacher had us mostly playing hangman, i think his youth club admin had him otherwise enthralled.

Its my feeling that diatoms are on the wane, that diatoms are not adequetely reported and news of diatoms re scientific workers is woefully behing the curve (downward).

We haven’t got time for peer review and endless conferences overseas … get the bloody findings out into the public domain, we have not the time for surety.

I’m also sick and tired of hearing the lazy term ‘coral bleaching’ when I presume its the absence of diatoms that provide the symbiotic relatonship with Bryozoans ie coral builders and subsequent inhabitants.

Things microscopic …

Exc pic of chalk as per White Cliffs of Dover … coccolithophores.

 

A man that is fascinated with such things and he too talks of diatoms – a vast genus that will prove so crucial to this planets unfortunate demise as we know it, for instance symbiosis with coral reef ie Bryozoans and its the exploitationof ancient oil and gas from diatoms ( 70% originates from diatoms) that with cruel irony is our demise. Diatoms produce DMS a gas discovered by James Lovelock in the 1970’s that is fundamental in weather systems / cloud formation out in the oceans, likewise diatoms provide 20% of the worlds CO2 to O conversion. And invisible to the naked eye. No expensive microscope, a secondhand students microscope set to low mag ie x100 will do all you want.

and from the above wiki we get a link to DMS …. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimethyl_sulfide

Interesting to see Lynn Margulis, i have a most fascinating book here, beautifully illustrated bought say twenty years ago ‘What is Life’ exploring the ideas of Ernst Shrodinger and his book of three quarters of a century ago. Note Sagan as in wife of Carl.

Another book, important and packed with knowledge is James Lovelock ‘Gaia’ a most incredible Independant Scientist, i’ve also his autobiography a very interesting read, easy too. But the Gai I have here suffers from too much colour in its explanations, more confusing than helpful in many cases. Never mind, i’m sure James Lovelock can hardly be held responsible once the publishers get their hands on it.

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 …

Climate change – Antarctica …

Not very often I can sit still to watch something beginning to end  …

 

 

At 07:30 above we see most of Italy and the UK severely modified ie submerged merely with the loss of the western Antarctic ice mass.

At 15:00 … increased precipitation is predicted from the additional freshwater from melt which will accellerate further the melting rate, a continuous compounding of the problem. I quote … as freshwater evaporates faster than salt water there will be a lot more rain and fresh snow.

At 21:00 all life down in the Antarctic seems to depend on krill which to my mind immediately focuses on the necessity of diatoms. Yet again we do not specifically hear or see of them, yet diatoms are ‘the crux of the matter’.  Diatoms are an utter fascination of mine, whether its Alfred Nobel and his dynamite, 70% of the worlds oil and gas,  the symbiosis with or the collapse of coral reef ie the Bryozoans, Pacific seabird collapse … I believe all are diatom based. My wife always said i cannot have an encounter without getting diatoms into the conversation somewhere. Remember silica is also the base for silicon wafers /chips and so often i cannot find a specific acknowledgement of this connection. Ooops and the heat insulation on the Challenger / Shuttle …. all diatoms !

Without diatoms we are absolutely screwed. And the irony of what has lead to their demise is quite horrible ie the burning of fossil fuels which are mostly the end remains of diatoms. Realise also that the huge Pacific seabird dieoff has not been fully explained nor reported as sufficiently as it should have been.

At 43:30 land animals are blinded because of the hole in the ozone layer, the size of North America. Yet theres no mention of the work of James Lovelock in actually discovering and measuring the level of CFCs in the atmosphere. James Lovelock also discovered DMS as emitted by diatoms and diatoms are if my memory is correct responsible for 20% of the planets conversion of CO2 to O.

chemtrails caught on NASA imagery … 2

….theres a no.1 this  …  https://climate-change-briefing.com/2019/01/22/chemtrails-caught-on-nasa-imagerey/

I will also will make this the chemtrail diary holding a fortnights work.

Tuesday 5th Feb 2019 …. Indonesia hit hard by chemtrails today, bad idea as chemtrail ‘heavy metals’ will impact coral reef, a symbiosis of diatoms (algae) and Bryozoans, ie the coloured animals of the reef (a few days ago chemtrails above the Sulu Sea, famous for recently found spectacular coral reef)…  today ….  https://go.nasa.gov/2HUBdfZ

For yesterday, poor old Anglesey gets regular chemtrails; likewise west of Ireland, all from the west …. https://go.nasa.gov/2HNvxnY

There looks to be zero discussion online of diatom collapse as impacted by chemtrails and / or Fukushima.

To see more chemtrails we need clearer bluer skies then the activity will start, to induce chemtrail haze where really no-one wants it. NASA worldview is very inconclusive, we had chemtrails here at the extreme of my southern ‘cone of view’ and theres no sign of it on worldview. I need a more regularly updated weather sat site.

4pm observation on nasa worldview shows me exactly what I was sensing above, ie chemtrail up above the lower cloud layer. Skyscape moderately aluminised. Good pic below of the only break in the clouds NE England and two chemtrails visible. Worldview link here is full of chemtrail; its a different shade of grey to cloud cover. https://go.nasa.gov/2HV0xCJ

Belgium as usual gets plenty of chemtrail … https://go.nasa.gov/2HOvatk

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

chemtrail diary 25th Jan 2019

I don’t want this, I didn’t ask for it and the media obfuscation / ridicule re chemtrails annoys me ie bundled up with spurious nonsense theories. All is factual here, nothing photoshopped; a nasty day full of chemtrails, on my reporting system say DQA 955 (MP)  … see bottom of post linked below to read of my reporting system, likewise search tags and categories. Note early DQA was max of 5,5,5, now its a max of 10,10,10, which allows me a finer gradation.

Previous post of mine re sat imagery … https://climate-change-briefing.com/2019/01/22/chemtrails-caught-on-nasa-imagerey/

Nothing appeared till 0800, then until 1200 noon it was continuous and quite blatant chemtrails (likewise as i type the 26th Jan ditto) …. the above link also includes sat imagery as additional proof. The sky was very much man made, aluminized.

Its obvious meteorologists / weathermen must all be under the Official Secrets Act, to not notice or comment on this is absurd.

Note the very obvious ‘aluminized sky’ … a term I’ve coined along with my DQA system and the slogan … ‘wise up – CARBON DOWN!’

And so everything we love such as pictured below is being rendered useless. I cannot see how the well heeled can swallow the bitter pill of a greener economy and lifestyle other than being massively taxed on both fuel and engine capacity, which I think will have to happen anyway.

Its imperative we live closer to work, rid ourselves of the obsession with beef and beefburgers, drastically reduce cheap air travel, stop having so many kids.

We need to forget the endless craving for yet more Economic Growth.

Plant conversion reduces with inc CO2, theres the methane time bomb not even included in the recent IPCC Report and jet stream, climate feedback loops etc have gone walkabout, escalating horribly interconnected. Marine food chain, sea life all fright now being screwed.  you cannot even find up to date data re earthworm reaction to aluminium from chemtrails nor the affects on diatoms at sea, algae, molds, bacteria as for soil health. Two year peer review and all that nonsense is now proving a hindrance I reckon. Lets say crop loss in three years, methane release out of control say year six.

wise up – CARBON DOWN !
