Microplastics and ocean health.

Two quick n easy films, thought provoking and incorporating two of my favourite interests, diatoms and the microscope.

One salient point drawn from each film:

  • Our salt contains microplastics (remember the blood / brain barrier) that only become visible when examined with a quite simple bench microscope.
  • Every fifth breath we make is supplied by the function of diatoms.

Diatoms appear to be now severely compromised, in my simple google searches its near impossible to obtain up to date information. I’ve read several times that diatom CO2 to O conversion is equivilant to the value of the rain forests for the same task. ie 20% contribution to world CO2 to O.

 

 

Most of the microscope footage is pretty well as you would see it at home with a medium price bench microscope. A spend of say £100-200 for a secondhand ‘scope would do all you want. I use a binocular Biolam obtained from a microscopical society here in the UK thirty years ago and was available as the original user had failing eyesight and had to go into care. I seldom use anything other than low mag for algal samples, diatoms etc say x100, of the four powers available I only use the lower two. Theres no need to buy new.

Note also that diatoms produce a gas DMS that was only in the 1970’s detected by independent scientist James Lovelock as is very important for oceanic weather systems.

 

The other big question I need to find out about is present contamination from nano-particle aluminium, as in the embedded youtube of around three posts ago ‘Lines in the Sky’ professional (retired) fisheries biologist Frances Mangels tells us that nano-particle aluminium is a billionth of a metre ie one thousandth smaller than particles of tobacco smoke. If my reading of this and my arithmetic is sound, we can write this as :-

tobacco particle = 1m x 10 power minus 6 (written 10^-6) ie take off three 0’s for a metre to millimetre conversion which gives 0.001mm ie one thousandth of a millimetre.

nano-particle aluminium = 1m x 10 power minus 9 (1m x 10^-9) will be one thousandth of the above ie 0.000001mm which in my opinion is way beyond what can be detected with an ordinary light microscope.

hint : remember 10^-2 mm is one hundredth ie 0.01mm  therefore 10^-3 is one thousandth ie 0.001mm

In my opinion its always much easier to talk as dec fraction of a millimetre (mm) when dimensions are sub-millimetre. As a practical engineer this is ALWAYS how it would be handled, far less room for error.

Realise that nano-particle aluminium is a far far smaller an aluminium particle that could ever occur in nature and therefore poses threats we would never have dreamed of.

As I write this piece we have an aluminised sky above, a strange grey, yesterday Sat 28 Dec 2019 was a lot of chemtrail over Europe as found on NASA Worldview and when out this morning 0930 yet again there are chemtrails being laid at high alt. Do many register this, anyone question it ???

Lines in the sky English Lake District.

The name that we apply to what we see colours and affects how we process our regard to them. I found by chance footage from the English Lakes early 2012 that including mvi has me talking of them as ‘con trails’ but even then fully aware California has suffered from these for years and this has altered agricultural yield, dulled the skies. I also now think the ‘fairy dust’ ie aluminium from these dreadful things led to the rampant wildfires, it wasn’t just the tinder dry land, there surely seems to have been additional incendiary and small particle aluminium is notorious as this, witness the efficiency of thermite welding for welding railway lines and controlled demolition.

If earlier than 2018 I had latched onto the idea of ‘chemtrails’ then possibly I would have been more vigilant, more liable to note and record the lines in the sky. But of course it is bundled up quite cleverly by general media as that dreaded term ‘conspiracy theory’ that the average Joe so easily takes on board. One could say this acceptance of chemtrails being a ‘conspiracy theory’ is indeed a conspiracy theory in itself; oh how easily we are hoodwinked and manipulated.

Think also of the disastrous affects of chemtrail aluminium on marine food chain (diatoms, plankton) life in lakes and rivers, brain function, brain degeneration and  dementia, the hazing over and ruination of what could be otherwise bright blue days.

First heres my ‘star pic’ an incredible indictment of the chemtrail shenanigans. Second image is NASA Worldview for that day, the orientation of the ‘lines in the sky’ coincides exactly ie NW/ SE.

In other words this demonstrates that the NW / SE trending band of straight line material as seen both from the ground and NASA Worldview (note its distinct hue / colour of grey) is to my mind man-made ie chemtrail. and it is not fairy dust being sprinkled above our heads. Click the link, explore.

Freshwater mussel die off.

Blimey, this is worrying. I wonder also how the common earthworm is faring, without it we are snookered. Likewise plankton and remember marine diatoms are utterly essential. I hate to be a doomster but when things ‘get into gear’ re species loss it will all happen frighteningly fast ie a few years. Likewise in my opinion ice loss is being dreadfully under forecast, it seems to my mind laughable when we hear on serious news programmes “Greenland ice could all be gone by the end of the century”, even as a kid I can tell you ice goes a lot quicker than thought credible. More like ten years than eighty, just my guess that’s all.

I wonder if this freshwater mussel die-off is tied into aluminium levels from chemtrail, I also wonder at the diatom and algal populations in the river under question, the Clinch River. These last few days theres been plenty to see on NASA Worldview; but first, mussel die off links ….

Yesterdays chemtrails.

Chemtrail diary.

To economise needless creation of data-bulk links for yesterday will suffice with one pic ‘the star pic’ to finish. I think we need to be mindful that data / web is multiplying to stupid proportions.

Chemtrail geoengineering clues as per NASA Worldview are revealed by colour, sometimes by the creation of corridors as well as random pattern and often visible hints given by the edges of systems and chemtrail geoengineering activity.

In the above a full 50% of apparent ‘cloud’ (ie white / grey stuff) is man made and deliberate chemtrail geoengineering. The down side is that chemtrail is a deliberate pollutant, aluminium barium and strontium we are informed being the major ingredients. Hence CA wildfires burnt as they did, hence bees are now suffering from dementia and life in lakes and rivers is much if not totally depleted in some areas of the world, no-one sees bugs or insects on the front of cars anymore. What more proof do we need things are going very wrong. The importance of the hit to microscopic life in water and oceans is not fully conveyed, as I’ve written before the irony of losing the base of the marine food chain ie diatoms looks to have led to the loss of the coral and the marine food chain itself. Ancient diatoms account for the creation of 70% of the worlds oil and gas deposits. In a sense we could say Man is eating itself.

Disclaimer, these are merely my own personal views to help open up discussion, raise awareness and somehow fight back the smothering mass-media influence that chemtrails are a joke. E&OE.

 

postscript: googling for ‘chemtrail pics UK I get good ranking, especially on image searches, a post for period Christmas 2018 and as an example specifically December 22 2018 has been augmented by my current use of NASA Worldview, ie the post for and its recently added content … https://climate-change-briefing.com/2018/12/23/chemtrails-uk-3/

Climate change, a laymans guide.

I often feel there is difficulty in finding or locating the latest on climate change ie increasing methane, ice loss, feedback loops etc.

This overview by Sam Carana holds up well, succinct and eminently digestible for the layman; I am a layman.   http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/p/extinction.html

It illustrates the stacking pernicious influences which in themselves arithmetically ensure sufficiently our downfall and even for this guaranteed scenario Sam Carana plays a light touch re the inevitable compounding and accelerating positive feedback loops that will push us into a whole new series of situations. Its all a quite dire mix, highly ironic as its mainly the consumption of oil and gas from ancient diatoms that has led to our demise, taking away the fundamental first layer of oceanic food chain and 20% of the worlds CO2 >O conversion. And yet no-one has ever seen a diatom with the naked eye.

I think I’m correct in saying it was independent scientist James Lovelock that discovered the gas DMS a product of oceanic plankton and its importance. I suggest read his autobiography, an instructive blend of practical science, talent and an independent thinking mind.

Also …  https://www.whoi.edu/oceanus/feature/dms–the-climate-gas-youve-never-heard-of/

Sam Carana in a more recent post highlights the disregard paid by the latest IPCC (Sept 2019) briefing / report in which NO FIGURE IS QUOTED for the effects of subsea methane in its three forms, frozen hydrates, microbial, capped gas deposits. The IPCC are criminal in this neglect. However not as criminal as donald trump in the rolling back and eradication of decades of wise strategies to husband the planet more sensibly; but of course trump would know nothing of the natural world.

 

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.

I am baffled …

I had held YaleClimateConnections as worthwhile and a valid source for climate change info, not that I’m much of an avid watcher of these things, I’ve a life to lead and have gleaned full well where we are heading. When will the penny drop that ppl have not the time for presentations of say fifteen minutes, youtube has many other items that need to be scanned as quickly as possible, an attached precis in document form would be mighty handy.  But this mornings visit has me baffled. For instance at 02:40 we are told “by 2100” (a misnomer in itself) that I quote loosely …  “Permafrost carbon feedback by 2100 ‘is’ smaller, much smaller than human fossil fuel emissions” … EH ! ? “Its about ten percent of that” …. CRIKEY. Sorry, invert your arguament then factor in a move of the decimal point.

I find this misinformation and crap hard to stomach. Methinks there is skewed thinking, Orwellian newspeak in action; its called trump, the EPA putting the screws on. Maybe shrouded as a general balm to quell any mass hysteria? IPCC is not much better, its most recent foray into ‘forecasting’ I think I’m right in saying deliberately did not include material contributed by Prof Peter Wadhams the worlds expert on Arctic ice and forgot to factor in Arctic methane !!!

Earlier the first nugget of wisdom in this pointless misinformation from Yale is of the plant life re-colonising and will transform some areas of thawing permafrost / methane release to a nett uptake ie 00:50 and onto 01:00 ! Blimey … now that is real optimism gone crazy. Sorry but even a child would say a thin layer of green encroachment is far outnumbered by the dirty soup of thawing permafrost that in itself provides physical depth and bulk, coupled with and absence of oxygen to generate the dreaded methane that is 80-120 times he potency of the already dreaded CO2. Short term potency is all we need consider, human life will not be here to see it extend to the medium term. Remember too that with increasing CO2 and methane green growing things actually back down and go into reverse in their much needed conversion. Already diatom / algal populations and conversion are going into reverse, also diatom / bryozoan symbiosis on coral reef needs explaining clearly, not just the glib ‘bleaching’. Yesterday even, reading of the tiny numbers of remaining Right Whale and the loss of their principal food no mention is made that it is the loss of lower food chain, again diatoms/ algae that will probably be at the root of this problem.

Maybe I should have been a scientist, I hope I could get at the truth better than this.

 

Theres nothing in this presentation / vid that i can let go unchallenged, its back to back misinformation and nonsense, its endless and what is most alarming is that its issued June 2019!

“The abrupt thaw could represent about a half of the total permafrost climate feedback” at 02:50 …  in my opinion try 1,000 % plus.

“If we can slow down human carbon emissions” … no its all set in motion, nice optimism, but interconnected feedback loops and the workings of nature are so very stacked against us ie 03:25

“Hit our economy” …. yes indeed!

This is like something made by twelve year olds.

 

 

postscript … note the term ‘restricted grammar and limited vocabulary’ … reminds one of the Idiot in Chief presently occupying (sometimes) the Oval Office.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newspeak

One could say quite fairly that in this fag paper thin layer that we inhabit viewing the world as a childs football (ie 0.001in on an eight inch sphere) … drilling and capturing mostly the oil and gas from ancient diatoms that has upset the equilibrium which first allowed humankind to thrive and therefore latterly upset the amazing and horrifying multiplicity of feedback loops have now been forced to realign to the newly introduced contaminants and effluent that now trigger the chemical formula and physical  laws that are quite unstoppable.

trumps refusal and crowbar silencing (as with YaleClimateConnections above) are far worse than any war crime and he should be tried as such. Whilst we’ve got people in the dock maybe Carl Benz, Rudolf Diesel and Henry Ford are to be answerable. Strange but true.
