A strange thing to talk about ….

On bbc r4 this week we had ‘Inside Science’ devote a segment to the prospect of the increasing methane levels in the next few years, Professor Euan Nisbet from Royal Holloway University of London emphasising tropical wetland methane but if my ears are working  correctly never once mentioned Arctic methane.

I am assuming tropical methane is a more steady state influence yet the Arctic variety in its three forms ie geological, microbial and thawing hydrates is on an astoundingly high trajectory of growth ie explosions of methane off the chart so to speak.

bbc radio is often a bit wonky and yet another example and shame upon the presentation of the subject.

I’ve blogged on Arctic methane previously, plenty of tags.

One cannot help but feel we are plunged into darkness whilst having just entered a strange new room, our steps are tiny, we will tentatively, timidly grasp at anything.


I find it profoundly irritating (and I refuse to take part) that we have to ‘log in’ to use the listen again facilityfor bbc radio, this is new and a bloody nuisance …



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  ….


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 !



Essential listening…

This is a good vid, straight into the nitty gritty … the stupidity of trump, the urgency of climate change, the arrogance and blind refusal of the GOP to accept climate change being real and the problem is here right now … notice Noam Chomsky tells us of the obscene roll-back of USA Emmisions Laws … they admit they don’t care and it ‘doesn’t matter’ ….. the bar is set so low now that people are limboing in the mud itself.


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.

chemtrail slideshow …

This is not my material, however includes things we see here in NE UK and lots more too. I need to give it more time and think about what we are looking at.



Heres another online find  … http://thechemtraildiary.weebly.com/

IPCC underestimations …. COP 24

Are massive and most likely catastrophically so. The battle is with nature and the natural world of feedback systems. All were in place, fully functioning and in equilibrium  well before we walked upright.

To paraphrase the twit in the White House …. “Who would have thought Climate Change could be so complicated” … Yes and so powerful and so all enveloping. Its ‘everything’ and its as if the roulette wheel decides our fate on one cruel spin.

Carbon capture must happen, yet so far its exploratory and small scale. And may I interject that for each oversize SUV or needless pick-up there will be a swathe of carbon capture apparatus to offset the crap!

The IPCC for instance does not even factor in loss of Arctic ice; its computer modelling is twenty years behind the times and not one recognised Ice Scientist was on the panel. Its as if we are suffering from collective stupidity, the Brits cannot handle the Brexit problem, the Americans are saddled with an idiot in the White House.

Heres some exclamation marks !!!!!! and a few more !!!!!

Below is a vid tieing in Prof Peter Wadhams (Arctic Expert) and a presentation in immediate response to IPCC outdatedness / time lag / ineptitude.

Salient points ….

  • IPCC much over complacent.
  • Controversial area of geo-engineering not explored.
  • IPCC contains / embraces discredited modelling ie ice won’t disappear till end of century.
  • IPCC ignores albedo effect ie reflectivity of the suns warming rays instead of worst case being absorbed (think Arctic methane) .
  • IPCC ignores increased melting of Greenland.
  • IPCC not factoring in loss of ice caps.
  • Govts can quote any target for the future, yet we all know theres always a shortfall that is excused away sometime hence…

To contradict the IPCC, reaforestation is in a practical world not feasible; timescale too! But it always makes nice tv to see junior school bods piddling about with seedlings… Germany for instance is stripping forests to get at open cast mining of lignite  … dirty dirty dirty.

Also the bitchiness, obfuscation and sheer downright twattery of Science reared its head when Dr Wadhams chapter on arctic methane was omitted from a written book / presentation for a Conference in China (without informing Prof Wadhams)  because we are told the Harvard Prof in charge did not believe Arctic methane was a possibility !!!  Remember that methane will arrive from three sources, geological, microbial and the release from thawing frozen hydrates; all from vast areas previously frozen we never visit nor can visualise in their seemingly endless expanse, ie East Siberian ice shelf which exists in huge swathes of shallow sea.

Interestingly Stuarts presentation included ‘Villian of the Day’ naming Theresa May in which she has sanctioned fracking and fossil fuel infrastructure; I don’t know details.



Also, a brief list ….
