Climate change discussion.

Just found this … https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-35068-1

… its in nature.com so it has validity.

With the temp rise, the loss of diatoms and the loss of coral (erroneously in my opinion termed ‘bleaching) the bryozoans fail, die because the microscopic partners have gone. Therefore to paraphrase trump … “Who would have known invisible things could be so complicated” … yup!

I got the link above from arctic-news … makes for the grimmest reading, but I’m glad its there. As I’ve learnt and repeated for the life of this blog the past year it is the sledge hammer threat from the thawing subsea methane that will stop the pendulum of life. Its a fact, its elementary observation and realisation, things as yet hardly seen that we cannot get politicians or the IPCC to take heed; the latter as generally acknowledged by climate-savvy scientists to be a report twenty years behind; witness the fact that the IPCC does not even recognise or factor in the importance of arctic methane release which in fact will be the death of us all.

Yet can we get ‘the man in the street’ to ponder on these things, to think a little bit more ???

Go back to my post half a year ago ‘making a model of planet Earth’ we are in fact a habitable zone of a wet cigarette paper placed on a childs 8inch football. Thats all we have and so hence our habitable layer is ultra sensitive to change, is staggeringly interconnected in all climate systems, jet stream, oceanic waterflow, gulf stream, accelerated melting of Greenland ad infinitum …  never mind the fun down in the Antarctic.

Please note I always have my radar turned on for either plain simple crackpot sites or sites designed to mislead or render a subject as ‘nuts’ ie misinformation. Beware that general media can be ‘loaded’ in this respect. My own beef being bbc radio news r4 being so un-crtical of trump and their choice of words actually sounding to support him or serve him up in the best light. That is what I think is the value of my blog, quality material.

postscript …. we may as well have the video from the latest arctic-news, it makes a valuable contribution.

 

Its just hit me, this year I cannot recall seeing the little hoverflies that used to be so prevalant at my local nature reserve the ‘pit heap’.

In five years time will I be able to see any honeybees, any pied flycatchers here in the UK ?? … I think the answer will be negative.

I just do not care for Dimbleby on QT …

Its too formulaic, too easily pre-determined. In other words a game with a fixed outcome, the result of manipulation and an agenda. The BBC in fact as far as I can judge from their radio news output (r4) presenting an angle contrary to a more open approach. Consider the bbc radio news of two years of presenting trump in the best possible and uncritical light. I can think of many occasions when unfortunately theres nothing else to listen to, so its QT  and knowing fine well how this will turn out. I just do not like Dimbleby nor care for his manner; much over-rated in this context.

JRM sheds light on this bigotry, his wish to project a certain image, below we hear at 02:04 “I used to live not a million miles from Slough … ie Eton College etc etc and Dimbleby likes to raise a laugh at that …. “With your son”.

I’m okay with Eton, two of the most interesting charming people I’ve ever met are old Etonians, good for them! But I do not like Dimbleby scoring points with presumptions of his beloved Middle England viewpoint, levering an audience to raise his laughs. One man is open and honest, the other operating a self serving audience manipulation, an agenda. I am quite warming to Jacob Rees Mogg.

 

Climate change… a worthwhile hour.

I would normally never cope with / tolerate / be bothered with an hour long vid but this treatment is most worthwhile. Its a good vid and needs to be required viewing for many many people on this planet.

For instance telling us…

… 03:35 Arctic temp rise is now six times faster than global average not times two as per outdated IPCC presentations.

… of the ‘stiffs’ at the IPCC I mean non-functioning bods (it was a charade actually) that as we are told are twenty years behind the times ie current thinking at 05:20

IPCC = a misleading impression. These two men will tell you the IPCC is laughable, a joke amongst the Climate Community. Twenty years behind the time.

*What I’ll do in the next day or so is work up the salient points into a buletted list, hour long vids as much as they are welcomed are difficult to fit in to my schedule and need to get lots done.

 

What can we do about general media, Fox News and other such unthinking yet biased populist nonsense?  Realise that my own interest of chemtrails has been so entangled unfortunately deliberately with nonsense theories that its v difficult to get the average person to take on board that aircraft trails in the sky warrant a suspicious eye. For newbies : some trails stay around and haze yet oldtime conventional trails merely evaporate, turn to nothing.  So what is going on when we get hazy obscured skies ? Please think, please question.

Fox are clever, they medicate their product with a reinforcing populist viewpoint that is engineered / premeditated to draw viewers to their bosom. Its all agenda, increasingly is so, to be on message, to promote a viewpoint. Choice is often now not to learn but to receive reinforcemnt of ones own viewpoint. Retro retarded bigots just love it …..

Rates of change and alterations are expotential, ie not a linear response. This is the quite frightening interconnectedness of the climate system on the planet ie jet stream, arctic temperature, water temps and movements and leads to methane release which will sky rocket the whole system onto another more horrible level. My loose terms here are intentional using ‘horrible’ meaning theres nothing we can do, the numbers self reinforce and all egg each other on into an unknown scenario ad infinitum. Think of crop failure, altered rain pattern, the limit of human sufferance due to heat (hence trump and his need of a wall indicating he does recognise climate change) … loss of human cognisance, reasoning and will, unable to function … or question.

 

The bbc is wrong ….

… in the way it is reporting trump. Last night at 10pm on bbc r4  ‘The World Tonight’  radio programme we had a recycled many days old quote from djt that was read by ‘an actor’ … as if the Presidents vocal delivery is too whacky for legitimate discourse (which it is) regarding how he will not condemn Saudi Arabia for the Khashoggi murder and torture and probable dismemberment.  The complete three minute piece was deliberately, overtly biased toward putting trump in a good light. The use of the actors voice completely changed how we would have perceived the insanity from trump. The world cowers and sniggers yet the bbc in this previously respected radio programme is basically ‘so far up’ that all we can see are toenails. Crude imagery yes, but true. And an insult to all the listeners. A word I never use is ‘conspiracy’ but from what I heard last night the word fits.

Heres the poor man, RIP;  the world must never forget his sacrifice.

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

Strangely bbc radio struggles with pronouncing his surname and as for names in Mandarin they make up phonetics that do not exist … its easy, pop into any Cantonese take-away and get the correct sound.

Why is the bbc hanging on to this ridiculed and false viewpoint? Are newsroom people so inexperienced and useless? I would love someone to answer me this. Note I do not have tv, but do most mornings read online best quality US news reporting which I regard as valid material.

As Seth Meyers points out trump stumbles from one whacky misjudgement to another, spouting valueless junk as he mumbles along. ‘Get him outa here’ as usual with all trump put-downs being most appropriate to himself. trumps invalid criticism of Forestry Management in CA being stupid beyond belief sprinkled with the ‘raking the forests’ nonsense. That is obviously his grounds management from golf courses, which I’ve not heard anyone else make the connection.  A night in the forest would do him good, as with, like …. being outdoors and more than twenty paces from a golf buggy. Might make him realise his carefully tended coiffure has to go !

Witness also trumps recent junk regarding Admiral McRaven.

People just stand around at the Idiot in Chief talks crap; which is probably safer for everyone.

 

 

postscript 10 hrs later …. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/nov/21/turkey-attacks-trump-comic-stance-on-khashoggi-killing

Also todays nasty nasty helicopter whirring Ivanka and emails invective / denial from trump displays his nasty nasty combative mindset. And this is from the so-called President of the United States !! Indeed we are trawling the bottom layer of sludge to come up with this shit.

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

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

 

 

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

 

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 ….
