A map of natures reaction …

http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/2018/07/can-we-weather-the-danger-zone.html

Its three posts ago from arctic-news but this map I’ve pasted below is certainly worth contemplation and committing to memory, I find it stunning. Titled vulnerable carbon pools.

Here also we can find the same map, its in several sites across the web … http://cosmology.com/ClimateChange101.html

Also from Aug 2013 … https://www.sbs.com.au/news/comment-methane-and-the-risk-of-runaway-global-warming

I cannot get it to copy and paste and being an old geezer my instant reaction is draw it on paper, but taking pics and uploading is a chore for me now mostly. Recently its popped into my mind several times that drawing maps freehand would be a useful hobby for me and in fact for kids too … most are woefully ignorant of the shape of countries, location, the assemblage of the land masses. Something to draw you out of yourself and is not connected with money and also the pursuit of what I call an American style  ‘leisure lifestyle’  and sold to us as consumerism… create some quiet time, another version of a Tea Ceremony! Use an atlas in book form, no need for a screen for this one. Screens in fact are page specific likewise the material delivered by google, books in some or many instances can provide a so much broader and serependitious view ie you can leaf through the pages. Thank goodness I grew up in a pre-web age.

One thing I do miss about the pre-web days is how easy it was to stumble upon new things, for instance art in its various forms, architecture, sculpture, paintings, watercolours, sketches; thought made visible by clever and talented people.

Got it …..

carbon-pools-1

Its more than just a ‘map of the land’ my initial choice of ‘nature’ in the post title fits better as the change and disturbance of temperature means that the brown areas ie high altitude peatlands are in for a catastrophic awakening. Remember that methane exists in three forms, geological deposits, frozen hydrate and microbial action. But on reflection ‘reaction’ fits better as boy-o-boy these huge unpopulated land masses are most certainly going to react. Remember too the slowing down of transpiration of green growing things in reaction to increased CO2; diatoms / algae much affected (another converter out in the oceans)  reduced regeneration or new growth of trees due to water and heat stress and the myriad of self amplifying and interconnected amplifying interconnected feedback loops. Certainly the increasing desire for a meat based diet is wasteful of resources, too expensive ecologically and can be seen to lag fifty years as to what we should be doing nowadays. Its not easy to keep this to an intentional brief post as is the fashion these days. Thats why theres previous posts here to read through. I’m learning as I go …..

For instance to quote from http://www.sbs.com.au posted 2013  …

In 2010 a Russian marine survey conducted more than 5000 observations of dissolved methane showing that more than 80% of East Siberian shelf bottom waters and more than 50% of surface waters are supersaturated with methane. Atmospheric methane levels (during glacial periods: 300–400 parts per billion; during interglacial periods: 600–700 ppb) have recently reached 1850 ppb – the highest in 400,000 years (see Figure 2b)

Much food for thought and would have liked to think could prod for Governmental and worldwide action. The only country to pull out of the Paris Agreement, trump is an odd character to say the least, he needs enlightened influence, not the circle of courtiers and grim outdated lobbyists at present whispering to his ear. Likewise Elon Musk, if he’s as clever as he portrays he should forget about cars (EV are not that green in a full carbon audit anyway) and get into carbon capture. If trump turned on this and got climate change savvy it would be the greatest boost possible for the world to like him, its win-win for everyone.

 

 

postscript … re drawing maps freehand. People wouldn’t do it but they’d blow thousands jetting to places they needn’t go. I am very anti air flight, always have been.

A no-fly Climate Conference …

About time too … the insanity of an African country flying four hundred delegates to a Arctic climate conference a couple of years back illustrates the need to be skype based. There needs to be a big readjustment in getting people out of the ‘hop on a plane’ mentality, I’ve always maintained this for decades, it is needless. Work local, live local.  This means a return to an organic style neighbourhood that has all the necessary needs and connections nearby.  I think also there will be massive population corrections, whether we like it or not and to resurrect Chinas one child policy would serve well enough; but there’ll be other corrections anyway to help us on the way to reduce numbers.

Prof Jeffrey D Sachs (Columbia University) tells us we have a 30 year window to get things changed, implemented and working, Sweden for example is ahead of most. The dreadful void of  a POTUS 45 trump withdrawing from the Paris Agreement and departing early so as to miss the G7 Climate Discussion (to cosy up to a lets face it stage managed play-out since taking office with K J-un) is hindering humanity. As Jeff Sachs tells us countries cannot operate in isolation.

Googling for the Gulags ….

… and I find this incredibly interesting post re thawing permafrost:-

http://large.stanford.edu/publications/power/references/wolf/

Its subject is the Kolyma, something I’d never heard of but now seems so important, I need to get a pole centred map of the northern hemishere rigged up or maybe better to draw one myself and therefore learn by doing, to be better memorised. Funny, this would be a few evenings simple near zero cost hobby yet how few if any would ever do such a thing, its not premade or drawn all coloured and finished down a wire and the outcome is that I will have memorised the map I have drawn myself. Likewise google the places, the rivers and get a sense of it all. Zero cost carbon free travel.

This link above is all you need for sixty minutes of getting an idea of the vast uninhabited spaces in Russia that are or were permafrost. Literally, as the permafrost thaws all the bits of hair, skin and whatever will now be coming alive with microbial activity, releasing some CO2 and mostly methane because of being in an anaerobic ie oxygen deprived situation trapped beneath the surface.

You can have all the apps, ten lane highways, three car families and wifi control in the world but its all irrelevant junk as nature and simple chemistry and physics run to a new as yet unknown equilibrium for the planet.

WordPress likes a pic, heres a link ….

Follow the link to see ownership, its not mine. The strata displayed is fascinating and something that I would always be looking for, taking notice of in my five decades of rambling; looking at land disturbance, exposed strata, quarry faces, lots! Likewise the sky, thats why chemtrails jarr so much with me.

Heres another thin yet profitable ‘link’ or connection that unfolds … theres a Dreadnoughts sea shanty ‘Old Maui’ that mentions the Kamchatka Sea and lo and behold we have another profitable area of study.

Its worse than you think …

Fair comment as there are so many strands and feedbacks boldy going where they’ve never gone before, at least not for millions of years and at unparalleled speed.

International beacon and benchmark IPCC is hopeless in its prediction and modelling, incorporating large scale carbon capture that does not yet even exist as workable technology nor on anyones schedule of budget and spending for implementation. Likewise IPCC appears to disregard that all natural CO2 to O conversion is either much diminished (diatoms) or closing down its effectiveness (plant transpiration) in response to escalating conditions. Food chains are actually collapsing, the Pacific is dieing, pollen and plant protein is already a third down, bees are much reduced in numbers as pollinators most likely because of the aluminium from chemtrails, insect life on land and rivers in many cases totally gone.

But also anything classed as ‘plantlife’ is suffering because of alumium from chemtrails, disease increased and protein value down. Note Monsanto has the answer with aluminium resistant patents and crops. We take agricultural success for granted, any shortfall will hit very quickly, along with animal feed.

Somehow its proving difficult to hear from growers and farmers as to how their lives are progressing. The wonder of the web so far is not putting forth the data and feedback we seek.

 

Postscript 17th May 2018. Regarding media manipulation. Maybe half a dozen times to different people I’ve pointed upwards to the sky not really getting anywhere and today it was a revelation.

“Oh you don’t believe in that mind control” ….

Uh??

“Of course not but what I am saying is that those straight lines that haze and merge are not conventional aircraft trails, they’re full of aluminium and organic growers are having problems with it, its also why California burned the way it did.”

(Remember …. Monsantos GM patents include aluminium resistance).

So who the heck is talking abt mind control? As with the first two people I mentioned this to and avid Fox News fans, as I did determine from that encounter there is concious effort to broadcast material that ridicules the ‘look at the chemtrail’ activists. That indeed is nasty and explains why its so difficult to get ppl to look up and take notice. Thats why its so difficult, they have been set against any such enquiry by it being framed in the media as a crackpot notion. Framed to automatically be seen as a nutcase enthusiasm. You see, theres no tv in this house so how wld I know their prior knowledge is so affected, so conditions to disregard my concern?

 

Further material … below is a youtube from five years ago, its ‘off the cuff’ unedited and captures a need for urgency. Without doubt we are now beyond the IPCC 2degC  line in the sand; northern shallow Siberian seas and methane in its three forms with an ice-free 2018 summer will be a problem. Elsewhere we see bandied the timescale of hundreds and thousands of years to lose Greenlands ice, I think not, lower decades considering already its described as ‘swiss cheese’. So hang on to your memories, don’t bother to reproduce and seek peace and quiet wherever you can.

 

 

The presenter is Thom Hartmann now sadly gone from the show. Below is a link to his present activity ….

Heres Michael Mann that Thom above brings onto his show, in his work to get some facts and reality out into the open …

https://www.michaelmann.net/content/climate-change-denial-era-trump-april-11-2018

… but remember trump demonstrates with great clarity and exactness that he certainly does believe in climate change, ie border wall moving to militarisation, near ban on refugees/incomers, disowning the poor, ramping the military etc etc. As others have observed of trump, don’t bother with what he says, look at what he does.

Its always played down …

Worthwhile reading  … https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/01/arctic-wildlife-sea-ice/

In my opinion the timescale will contract to much sooner than predicted. At least they have the confidence to write of such things, ‘time will tell’ as the saying goes.

I will not be able to view any material that shows seals and polar bears struggling. As I’ve said before, a picture of a starving polar bear needs to be nailed to trumps head so that everyone can see what the 9-carat plated fool is about. The term climate change is forbidden by Scott Pruitt at the American EPA, likewise scientists have been dismissed or put on garbage tasks such as payroll.

 

Greenland Ice Sheet 2018 …

Googling image search for the above term seems to provide material other than a straightforward text search, perhaps the image has tags that drift toward my chosen term.

Below we read of new studies and the hopelessness of the IPCC Climate Model. In its defence I would say its a useful rallying point and focus of attention yet admittedly it is hopelessly off course.

https://www.nbcnews.com/science/environment/bad-news-florida-models-greenland-ice-melting-could-be-way-n268761

The inter-connectedness of all manner of climate aand natural systems really is staggering. On the web generally we also have a problem with whatever slant or denial is woven into the text therefore the reader has to put their brain into gear to recognise what viewpoint is being promoted. To people that seldom read more than a few words onscreen this will be a problem for them, a widespread problem and getting worse. A case presented as first entry google (no link here) full well tells us of Greenland ice loss yet appears to deny any form of increased CO2 being a major factor. It sort of shoots itself in the foot as for whatever reason for this ice loss (and they forcefully promote data of geothermal ie underfloor heating) we are in a bad situation. So perhaps instead of outright denial of a situation the clever way is to weave it into something else. Crafty! The comments particularly are ‘loony’ but we can see quite clearly their silliness and their unimportance. We can notice this all over the web, information but sometimes is actually ‘disinformation’ in its bias I assume with intent to mislead. And I’ve met sane quite happy people adamant their Fox News view of the world is the correct one! Up till now I always maintained the old subject of Rhetoric was much neglected, now I can see being taught to evaluate ‘comparative texts’ is desperately needed.

Who are these people that go out of their way to deny the data, to run counter to what is happening? So energetic to promote their own fixed ‘angle’ when enlightened scientific opinion shows otherwise. A case in point is the reduced transpiration of green growing things due to present levels of CO2 ie less cooling, less conversion to O. Likewise searching for sea bird death in Alaska suddenly halts at two years ago, since then next to nothing available. Bee and insect decline, the former being found with high levels of unbonded ie free aluminium which ties in with climate engineering / chemtrails. By the time ‘studies’ prove this that or the other it will be woefully too late.
