Insect decline, moths, butterflies …

Time to see what new material we can find on this …

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/jun/17/where-have-insects-gone-climate-change-population-decline

An old article, I’d say it is meantime that the loss has been so apparent … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/feb/01/british-moths-calamitous-decline

Its peculier how the obvious decline of moths these last five years is so little reported.

Where have all the insects gone?

For the UK an old book E B Ford ‘Moths’ in the Collins New Naturalist Series is a good all round starter. https://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Moths.html?id=mVsxvgAACAAJ&source=kp_cover&redir_esc=y

Roy Pitman ‘A Naturalist at Home’

Newman ‘Looking at Butterflies’

Quick I/D guide … Collins ‘Complete British Wildlife’… good for moths and butterflies.

Anything Richard South on moths, the old Warne series but still useful.

Theres lots, thank goodness for ebay.

Remember, our liveable space on the planet (half a mile up and half a mile down) is represented by a one thousandth of an inch ie 0.001″ cigarette paper placed on a childs eight inch dia football. A cigarette paper is one quarter of the thickness of copier paper ie at 0.004 inch. We have so little space, therefore if we mess with its chemistry, its temperatures and a myriad of multi-webbed feedback loops then we are in trouble; or a single species such as ourselves takes too big a bite of burning resources and upsetting natural systems alien to nature, then as again, we are in trouble.

 

 

 

 

Chemtrail diary 1st April 2019.

We are now onto BST here in England, my dog doesn’t realise its a sixty minutes disjoint in his demanding ‘hund fodder’, but it still feels bloomin’ early. He’s old and he ‘wants’ all the time, always was a difficult dog, its tiring. Some days better than others, we have our routines, cooking etc which helps compartmentalise his ‘wanting’ and also the better mornings are when I have a near continuous dialogue with him, the words seem to feed him.

0700 BST (tho my mind is keen to tell me its 0600GMT)…  significant chemtrail above, strong and hazing, say 6-8off visible at any point. Also a distinct ‘turn-on’ of chemtrail visible in a flight as pictured below. Its a high pressure (HP) day so odds are high its will be ‘a chemtrail biggie today’, last big chemtrail day was a Saturday 23rd March just over a week ago ie https://climate-change-briefing.com/2019/03/23/three-dozen-by-0900/

I can hear them flying above, but the chemtrail bods are those much higher, near silent. With global warming its going to be near impossible to get both individuals and corporations to throttle back on air travel. Like SUVs and a beef diet it will take some ‘cracking’. My latest crackdown/improvement here at the hacienda is to wash by hand and drip dry, works fine!

In my opinion the chemtrail people have now realised how to stop short of the dreadful ‘aluminized churn’ witnessed here three or four mornings last year, was quite obscene, lower brown reaction clouds, fast churn etc.  Realise too it can be random, or corridor, or nothing visible in your own cone of view but laid say corridor fashion close to or over the horizon. West coast chemtrail USA to drift mid western has been going on for many years we read from many sources. Look at youtube and be sure to include a place name in the search box.

Okay its another thirty minutes, I’d better lok out, I’ll be missing the action …

… its potent chemtrail up there today ….. you f###### b#####ds.

07:45 BST … theres a horrible bank of very dark cloud coming in from the west, I can only assume laid over to the west yesterday, yes nasa worldview indicated as such over the Irish Sea and shipping areas Fastnet and Shannon. Already the open sky is mostly hazed and significantly subdued fom its earlier bright blue, I’d say 50% lost / obscured of this bright HP day. To what extent is this hindering agricultural production?  Realise that Monsanto worldwide have patents that include their GM crops being specifically resistant to free-borne aluminium. Free-borne / unattached aluminium is extremely rare (non-existant?) in nature. Last year the only clear sky was a fortnight before the Royal Wedding. A sunlight recorder read in conjunction with data ten and twenty years ago would be a useful move. Also I read, ozone is destroyed by geo-engineering ie chemtrails.

pics and worldview to follow as the day progresses …

0800 BST north east England, thats it! …  sun soon to be obscured, very dense dark what i assume to be aluminized cloud drifting over to the east coast. I’m glad I witnessed this, at a guess twenty significant chemtrails now obscured and this morning quite potent ie a lot of ‘material’. An hour later i can hear high alt aircraft which possibly are still laying chemtrail.

0940 BST and the grey canopy is thinning / moving out over the north Sea. looking at weather sat i will be able to determine how many hours for Shannon / Fastnet chemtrail to reach us. So lets look at the pics up till the arrival of the obscuring bank of grey cloud 0800 …

 

 

 

11am BST Monday, camera now cleared for the remains of the day, at any time at least ten chemtrails visible in the sky above, limited cone of view say twenty mile diameter max because of the semi-urban ie built landscape around me.

noon / one o’clock … sky now back to oppressive grey, immobile too, not moving anywhere; same all afternoon and hence i can hear aircraft but cannot see the chemtrail result good or bad. Here below remaining photographs from later morning, its tricky to capture a distinct image of widening hazing chemtrail.

A day later Tuesday we hear on bbc r4 morning news of increased charges for polluting vehicles entering London (okay i understand) the Mayor so determined to clean up the air; on my last visit eighteen years ago i thought it cleaner anyway, much cleaner than twenty years previous in 1980. A point he made is that they have now determined children are only developing smaller sized lungs, smaller lung capacity … surely the problem there is screen time !! … no-one plays outside, no-one hops and skips, no-one chases a ball. THAT IS the problem. The little mites are ferried to and fro in mummys SUV. My BS meter is starting to twitch …

Kids are unable to apply themselves, cannot complete a task, have poor hand eye co-ordination with any implement or tool, have no interest or realisation of the value of books, their content. I assume their handwriting and sketching skills must be several years behind.

Point is, what about all the crap up in the sky, the chemtrails? That is certainly one big polluter they will NOT be talking about  ….

Lets try and find a few chemtrail youtubes for London to round off this one day post. remember to add a location or city to the search box, general terms only yield v limited results.

Northern Canada: +22C when it should be zero.

Yikes, ultra creepy temp increase  … anything that says by 2100 Greenland Ice Massif will be gone … more like 2026 I’d say. This end of 2026 point in time is when i would think we are somewhere at a minimum of  3 to 4C global warming, you can wave goodbye to anything like a piddling 2C prediction … quite laughable sticking to 2C considering the interconnectedness of natures climate systems and feedback loops. If I’m not correct then I will donate £1k GBP to charities, no quibble.  Remember, the accelerating nature of ice melt is working against us, any child knows wake up next morning and it can often be an exasperating sight to see all the ice and snow mostly gone overnight as often happens here in northern England. Realise too that with increased ice-melt the freshwater adds to increasing humidity and rainfall. Therefore no albedo effect ie the reflective nature of a white landscape is lost and ad infinitum heat absorbancy spirals way beyond most publicly available predictions. Permafrost becomes mush, methane tumbles upwards from microbial, geological and thawing hydrate; better sort some space for all the oxygen cylinders we will need.

And then what ?

 

Heres a pic of what its like up there in NWT … https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/mackenzie-valley-winter-road-closed-1.5064202

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/truck-plunges-deline-ice-road-1.3477869

 

Postscript; thinking of ice loss, not even the term logarithmic in relationship to volume decay is applicable when the temperature is rapidly increasing as in the North West Territories cited above, any ‘steady state’ conformity to plotting arithmetic curves or laws of decay goes out the window or into the newly formed lake. Again, thinking of childhood observation of a quick thaw here in temperate England, all the melt seemed to merely sink into the earth itself which in a permafrost situation up north is the last thing we need. So therefore in my mind most ‘predictions’ are invalid, unreal because thawing ice behaves in its own unique way. Its back to what I fear by 2026.

At least i’m doing ‘something’ even if its quite by chance or the new circumstances of my wife passing away three years ago which has enabled me to do things differently, ie much reduced mileage in the car as I’m happier being nearer to home (I’m the ideal profile for an electric vehicle) …  washing machine bust and won’t be replaced, plastic bucket and a clothes line do all i want as theres no real dirt or grime to remove. Keeping the computer switched off most hours also helps in several ways, use books more, increase pleasure in sketching, copying, taking notes, memorise things … we don’t always need to be up on the latest news online, theres much human knowledge that is as good now as it was forty or a hundred years ago. I’ve no tv through choice and this suits me, bbc r3 and 4 provide sufficient, no mobile either and I’ve uninstalled the wireless remote heating thermostat. The only modern luxury I wish to retain is my central heating system and the pleasure of a hot bath !

Spinning and tumbling clothes dry here in England can be severely cut back and perhaps eliminated in many households, the washing line does all these things; particularly as these last few years we seldom have the rainfall here in NE England that we used to have.

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  ….

https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a26077427/trump-tweet-midwest-cold-global-warming/

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 !
