Scouting for climate info …

trump and his nastiness diverts us from pursuing a more usual constructive life and chemtrails I reckon are probably to be absent until spring and the warming of the sun, at least here in the UK. So now at backend 2018 we can look at climate change info ….

look at micro-granules of plastic and the blood/ brain barrier … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/apr/24/record-levels-of-plastic-discovered-in-arctic-sea-ice

It would take a full page A4 of close-typed headings to even bring together the basics of enquiry / search terms for the layman.

mainstream denial of Pacific die-off … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDno5_ARLbY

 

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

From experience I know that successive days or sessions on youtube yield better, more detailed or less populist material on any form of search, this was obvious about eight years ago one Christmas where I focused on Italian Neo-Realist cinema of the 1950’s. It took three evenings before I was offered the full-length ‘Umberto D’.

Heres some hints to look out for and many are covered/ linked here in previous posts …

  • bee and insect decline
  • arctic ice loss
  • antarctic melting from beneath
  • increasing sliding speed of glaciers
  • diatom and plankton loss and the importance of this
  • dead rivers
  • loss of caddis fly
  • fish stock decline (everywhere)
  • alzheimers in bees
  • west coast USA river entire ecosystem decline
  • Pacific seabird collapse (starvation) and its under-reporting
  • Fukushima
  • aluminium from chemtrails
  • California wildfires and chemtrail aluminium accumulation
  • autism increase (aluminium)
  • deforestation
  • needing to decrease beef consumption
  • population growth
  • too great a dependance on digital and the web and how we think
  • web manipulation, manipulating opinion
  • trumps madness and denial, the EPA tragedy
  • trumps lies and graduated decline into authoritarianism, American Fascism
  • the inadequecy of the IPCC reporting
  • methane in its three forms, frozen hydrate, microbial, geological (ice capped)
  • green plant transpiration reversal at increased CO2
  • the love affair with the SUV and carbon based personal transport
  • human arrogance and conceit
  • electric vehicles not being the answer they seem
  • chemtrail deployment, resultant ‘haze’ and impact on organic growers
  • Monsanto patents and aluminium resistance
  • jet stream alteration and split resulting in warm wet air over the Arctic
  • etc etc

 

 

trumpian distortions …

… trump is used to this, its his mindset; to invert, to upset and meanwhile offer a contrary dialogue.

Whilst he is busy scything down (oops bad analogy –  connected to the world of work) a Free Press and any critical appraisal of his nasty White Nationalist standpoint (ie a latterday Fascism) he can spoon out sufficient quotable niceties so that his ‘in his pocket’ mutually favoured news service have sufficient to paint a white-washed feelgood commentary whilst he can meanwhile destroy all that is good about America.

He embraces thugs and dictators whilst legitimate World Leaders are repulsed and other than Macron attempting to connect and turn his stupidity they have little to do with him.

trump is in a closed feedback loop (as he has been all his life) …  much like the many environmental and climate systems he is intent on ignoring, feasting on Fox that yet again reinforces ‘the donald’ viewpoint. Shame on Fox and suchlike. As mentioned before, quite what are the crazy conversations behind closed doors that we are not privy to?

Media can serve to eliminate developing a wider viewpoint, or to see the wider picture, of the wrecking ball of trump, both materially and psychologically, of social structure, bonds, communities. His actions are sick, his mentality is sick.  George Orwell was incredibly prescient.

trump didn’t like it being pointed out by CNN Jim Acosta that the caravan is in fact many hundreds of miles away and poses no real immediate threat. trump seems to have bypassed what an education should provide, ie realistic, thinking citizens that will not see their country trashed.

trump turns words upside down, they are bullets of falseness to injure, disrupt and con. Lets remember trump university !! A worst case narcissistic spoilt brat. He’s not drained the swamp, he’s drinking it.

Everything, every insult he hurls is most applicable to himself, fake, lies, the enemy of the people etc etc

International ridicule …

Its okay to be piss-taken in ones own country or ones own bailiwick but to be shunned internationally is surely one gold-plated put down.

And of course   donald j trump  has achieved such a thing !!!

Mao, Hitler, Stalin all registered internationally and many experts were focused on each of them, but with    donald j trump   the whole world at an elementary level can see he is hopeless, useless, a hindrance, no good.

Its a good rule in life to never pretend one is cleverer than one actually is. Do not bluff, do not lie, do not con, realise others are far cleverer …. offer humility.

It was done by arrogance, by dogma, by ignorance …

I remember this from years ago, never more relevant. I’m thinking particularly of the abhorrent resurgence of Fascism and trump.

I quote “When people believe they have absolute knowledge and no test in reality” unquote

 

The above is at the end of his acclaimed tv series ‘The Ascent of Man’. I’ve watched this clip many times today, within his words is something, a great deal more.

Same day here in the UK we hear Robert Winston on bbc r4 at teatime on the ‘pm probramme’ reminding us to be careful of our words, that in his personal outlook of being Jewish its a basic tenent to use words wisely, carefully. He specifically was talking in regard to trump and his trashy inciteful talk.

Recycling of materials – some myths …

Its a good thing re-cycling / recovery of household waste is in action… BUT there are some oustanding errors in its application.

  • A neighbour of mine likes to wash out and screw tight his empty plastic water and pop bottles, these are biggies and when their bin blew over in the wind they scattered all over and rolled effortlessly all onto the busy road. Stupidly I risked my neck and managed to retrieve quite a few. It dawned on me, the collection lorry will be driving away with a hopper full of air and the crushing pressure must be quite absurd, ie perfect round cylinders super-slippery defying compaction. How bloody stupid. Once crushed and capped before binning so much easier and efficient for the recycling journey.
  • At the Council waste site, cars drive in with their goodies, a wine bottle, a small cardboard box, hence huge skips get loaded with uncompacted cardboard boxes and others with uncompacted garden waste. Last week at the local bottle bank theres a Bentley delivering his bagful of bottles … how jarring in some ways. Big lorries arrive etc etc all are contractors at God knows how much an hour to cart away huge steel containers containing more air than items ….. stupid ! And if as happened a few years ago I try to retrieve a say triple wall cardboard box for sending goods export I get my nuts chewed off, in a most nasty manner. Oh yes and same operative drives a Porsche …… we can only assume he is doing his own ‘recycling’.
  • Realise lots of this recycling from the UK ends up the other side of the world, follow that item in your mind, imagine the price tag this carries in its transportation and how it ends up possibly dumped or discarded.
  • bbc r4 had a programe at the weekend (Sat 27th October 2018 5:30 pm) ‘The Bottom Line’ re plastics recycling, apart from its irritating format and Gavin snickering into his too closely miked gob as seems to be the format not once was the distinction made between thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics. This is a fundamental ‘your first minute’ in any materials lesson. One can be recovered and recycled ie reformed remoulded and the other most certainly CAN NOT ie resin based composites such carbon fibre such as wind farm components, glass fibre circuit boards, phenolics…. these will merely blacken, smoulder and char.

I never buy new electronics, in previous decades my tv and audio have all been donated or rescued from the skip site but of course now retrieving a likely audio set up is a mighty dangerous act, even an offence (to recycle as a functioning item) … again… how shortsighted!

It irritates how the bbc now wants me to log in to access their ‘listen again’ facility, something i now unfortunately never bother with, another loony change for the worst. Heres the link for the above prog cited …. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0000t55

 

trump and his pantomime …

Quite an accurate comparison, we certainly have a full cast.

trump Friday as usual swims against – no that is too dynamic a word – feebly, limply  utters the usual predictable contradiction to world opinion for what went on in the Embassy with a now dead  journalist. He tries so hard to sound authorative but sounds like a weekend dad putting forward the usual empty promises. He has probably the worlds most powerful and comprehensive Intelligence organisations to provide data but they go unheeded and are belittled and disregarded. That is because their abilities, level of performance etc are something trump despises. Its also because only they can keep tabs on him and get a real view as to how entangled he is with Russia and Russian money.

He’s trying so hard to appear the big man, to have the angle. His favourite press chat lately being to the whirr of the helicopter waiting to whisk him away to his golf course, to hold Court on his terms for the weekend. I couldn’t care less about him but he certainly should not be a President.  He’s a Presider, nothing else.  Being a President matters not one jot to him, playing the idiot pantomime character whilst everyone else is scurrying around doing their own thing and the villains gaining advantage every minute. Or like some buffoon in a traditional childrens pantomime when everyone is screaming “Its the Russians its the Russians” … yet this old dame acts and speaks nonsense … unheeding to anything obvious to everyone else.

to recap  …

  • two hours alone with Putin, no minutes kept this is treason.
  • destruction of world trade agreements, no valid reasoning.
  • denigration of established world security, NATO etc.
  • introducing trade tariffs where no-one wins, US farmers will be hard hit.
  • Puerto Rico most ineptly handled…..
  • a thoroughly ignorant denial of Climate Change.
  • every insult hurled is most applicable to himself….
  • the world is screaming ‘Its the Russians’ and Donald is deaf ….
  • only past experience is immense financial comfort, tax avoidance on a massive scale, reality tv and selling his name as a franchised brand.
  • a six times bankrupt, as reliable as a slithering snake.
  • creating chaos as in evil.
  • destruction of much that has taken many people years to build and implement, environment, healthcare, human rights, equality etc etc.
  • denial of free speech, denigration of a Free Press, veering to Fascism.
  • insulting to all women, a deliberate denigration of ppl of colour.
  • lies, fakery and obfuscation on a massive scale.
  • trying to turn America into a tribal angry country (this is Bannon)  anxiety, again chaos.
  • trump applauds thuggery and ignorance.

That is one heck of a record, a negative record.

trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and morals …..

 

I cannot let it go …

… that trump yet again on last nights charade I mean rally adamantly applauds, congratulates such immorality; inciting anger and promoting physical abuse toward the Free Press, indeed anyone of the Free Press and last night notably Guardian Reporter Ben Jacobs.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/oct/18/trump-greg-gianforte-assault-guardian-ben-jacobs

Its time for the F word ie FASCISM. These masturbatory stage-managed sessions of trump (so-called rallies)  need to be seen for what they are. His tv reality show skills have served him well.

This undoubtedly is fascism. I am horrified and much troubled. Yet we must remember that what trump projects may not be the actual truth, may not be a true reflection of how people feel and most certainly is not at all a mainstream movement. As with all things trump there is much that is smaller than you think, his so-called business success, his abilities in general, his insight and understanding, his ability to lead a nation as President.  He knows he gets worldwide major coverage, but I think he needs to be seen for the hollow man he is; a human form of the animal genus Sus, facing downwards nose buried raking about in the dirt.  Ironic its yet another parallel from writer George Orwell.

Look back to other Fascists, they work the sore of the disaffected to ride along on them as a platform, they project a sense of injury imaginarily perpetrated by minorities so that others can hitch a ride in ‘denigrating’ and feeling superior. They abuse free speech, they have madcap schemes and see sleight and offence where none exists. This is as if adverbatim from the trump playbook. Fascists destroy the economy of their nation, people become much poorer, the so-called ‘wealthy elite’ become so much richer, yet ordinary people are restricted and confined and fascists create endless upset and friction and eventually war with anyone and any country that ‘is not their friend’.  Fascists cannot see reality in anything like a clear light and do not have the enlightenment that a real education provides. Fascists have media that promotes their cause without criticism; reality, decency and truth being abandoned. Voila! … its trump.

I remember reading a couple of biographies of playwright Arthur Miller and him telling us how when younger his stomach turned to hear home after home spewing the filth from Father Coglan, inciting hatred as he walked along the street.

Couple of people have mentioned recently how nowadays we seem so ‘dumbed down’ and from several chance encounters I can only agree. Does television rot brains?

Realise too the extent of trumps showmanship, selling himself as a brand and convincing prospective users of his name/ branding (which will cost them money) this does indeed take showmanship; this perhaps goes a long way to explaining his personality. He projects  himself to sound a realistic grounded in-the-know type man and quite easily makes the other man feel a cleverer person. This is called salesmanship.

Remember, he was a ‘millionaire’ by age three, his formative years were spent away from home in a military academy, tax and regulation mean nothing to him. He is ‘brass-faced’ to an extreme, the master of quite hollow lowest denominator wisecracks.

He turns everything inside out, upside down. Every insult he hurls is most applicable to himself. He says knows the art of the deal, I disagree, he knows the art of  ‘the screw’.  Maybe when he said he was the King of Debt perhaps that was his one true statement. I cried when I heard his Inauguration Speech as if written by a gaming obsessed nihilistic inadequate thats seldom ventured from his room; yes probably as it fits Bannon. We see pics of Bannon but when he speaks he too falls down flat, like much of the fascist detritus that hangs around trump. Bannons one true remark – “Trump is a streetfighter”.

I think trump is more stage managed and rehearsed than we realise, after all the backdrop ie fake supporters to his rallies are hand selected for the camera. Look at them, they are not engaged they couldn’t care less. Something that is so phoney and so make believe would never jarr with trump, he’d ride with anything that promotes him. I also think trump feeds off a constant flow of twisted croneyism, he cannot take this deliberate downward path without being coached and mentored, its all a voice of twisted old white men; of on-the-make prototypical fascists. Hence his rising early, tweets, phone calls to like-minded all before coming down at 11 to play a little in the Oval Office.

The poor, the ordinary and the anxious do not matter to trump, he is blind to them.

A president should also be the good shepherd.

We find he is remote from his own Intelligence material, after all its to a depth ie several sentences and multi-strand concepts that he has no patience for, it is from actually intelligent people, professionals… https://www.politico.com/story/2018/10/18/jamal-khashoggi-trump-intelligence-community-saudis-914280

postscript … this week bbc r4 ran a story on the pm programme from trumps ghost writer for ‘The Art of the Deal’ Tony Schwartz. His warning was stark. First vid is before election and is frightening enough ….
