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.
In the well produced and I assume well financed vid below it is in error for not including and stressing the importance of the smaller earlier but totally essential diatoms and algae, leading to protozoa and phytoplankton and zooplankton. Four and five successive and distinct layers in which none of them can be dispensed with, until now of course and therefore the marine food chain will and apparently is collapsing.
For instance the massive seabird collapse three / four years ago, largely unexplained, buried as news, we do know massive numbers flew inshore a total contradiction to their habit and their stomachs were empty, they were starving.
Never does anyone talk of diatoms but heres a comment i made today for the embed below and it sums up the matter well…
I quote …. “Great job BUT …. is that sea floor greatly depleted (I don’t know the area)… also you MUST please include diatoms and plankton in the food chain, without them none of this exists. Diatoms also provide 20% of the worlds CO2 to O conversion and ironically its burning the ancient diatom accretions of oil and gas that have led to their and our impending demise. Seventy percent of our oil and gas is of diatom origin. The irony is tragic. Diatoms are microscopic and to paraphrase trump “Who would have tought something so small was so important” ….
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.
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 ….
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
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
aluminium from chemtrails
California wildfires and chemtrail aluminium accumulation
autism increase (aluminium)
needing to decrease beef consumption
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
Tonight I was staggered at the dieback of common hedgerow trees here in north east England. I’d say minimum 5% of leaves are useless and more like 10% for oak and birch of dead and useless leaf cover and also say 50% look less than healthy, I would assume not able to do their job of transpiration and converting CO2 to O. Is the distress species specific or merely the presence or absence of drains or watercourses that anyway are all now dried up and any moisture retreating downwards? Theres a long time to go yet in this increasingly dry summer. So far I don’t think I’ve heard of hosepipe bans on the radio, the same medium ie UK national radio last week told us “There had been sufficient rain this spring” …uhm … I beg to differ, its been mostly dry here all spring and any fool can tell the water table must be low. However the same bulletin did tell us we are a fortnight from ‘wilting’ of crops here in the UK (a week now) which of course farmers dread, it is disaster if is prolonged. Disaster as in ‘no product to sell’ no food for the populus.
It’ll also be a disaster if we get two or three years in a row like this, summer and the landscape in England will become so much different, our CO2 converters dwindling and man-made CO2 ever increasing, in turn feeding into all the multiple feedback loops, already we have the disappearance of arctic ice, methane in its three forms, jet stream modification, food production severely hampered etc etc all waiting in the wings so to speak. If medium size trees can’t survive then saplings won’t.
Theres BS at every turn, for instance I want to write a post later re Tesla cars, so much hype, so many adulatory trolls online yet a simple carbon audit reveals theres not much difference to conventional IC engine power, never mind the total hold up / inconvenience (and real / true cost) of a charging session and the very high initial purchase price and something that cannot or is not allowed to be fixed locally. Think about mining for lithium, think about disposal of the batteries, theres not much green about it. The only ‘green car’ you’ll ever have is no car at all which is in fact the direction we need to be heading. Perhaps its fair to say that this planet cannot sustain our modern slick consuming lifestyles.
Its a multiple whammy …. we need herbage and trees for CO2 to O conversion as the former has risen to all time levels, something like 420ppm. But the more CO2 rises the less transpiration and conversion is likely to occur, this is how growing things react and are reacting already, as if the plants and trees are working against us; a cross-over on the graph. Likewise plankton in the oceans, massive dieback but scientists are so quiet (and slow) on the subject. I say get some balls, use your wits and don’t wait two years for it to be peer reviewed.
Unless of course the plan is that weather modification comes to the rescue (and aluminium resistant Monsanto GM) … not sure how as the moisture levels do not seem present to be able to conjure with in the cycle of water. I also wonder these last couple of days looking upward at what chemtrails are present above the blanket of grey?
How much of this leaf damage is from aluminium chemtrails?
The damage I observe is that say 50% of leaves look not healthy … dull, curled, drying out …. a third or half of the leaf turned a light brown and crumbles at touch. Ten percent of leaves most definitely dead or useless.
I’ve also wondered about the quality of the light this year, it feels harsh, more intense. I’ve read elsewhere that the layers of the atmosphere of which there are many (well researched and have specific names) are undergoing a change. Yet ANOTHER of the multiple changes that are in feedback mode both upon themselves and influencing all manner of other natural feedback systems.
Aluminium from chemtrails is a problem that organic growers know fine well is destroying them. And we know that when chemtrails are aired on mainstream tv a lot is done to bundle it up with erroneous ‘controversy theory’ and ‘mind control’ and other wacky garbage so as to ridicule people such as myself that attempt to raise the matter. Its a big wall of disinformation that has to be scaled to see at the truth, few people bother. As detailed and linked many posts previously a Fisheries Biologist with a lifetimes experience can state with fact that aquatic insect life in west USA streams and rivers hardly exists …. a total collapse. You can no longer fish for trout.
And thinking about it, who actually walks a country lane these days, very very few if practically anyone. Except me….
Its certainly apparent for things like chemtrails that mass media is doing its best to frame the discussion with as much ridicule as possible ie adding ‘mind control’ and that dreaded term ‘conspiracy theory’ to the mix, so that those who try to point to the sky and question the un-natural chem trails, fast morphing and ruination of what should be a bright (high pressure) day … are ridiculed.
Likewise the trump/ GOP USA smokescreen of non-admittance to climate change and the need for real and immediate action is quite obscene, a disservice to humanity itself.yet they do believe in climate change, hence the obsession with the border wall to stop migration and its probable militarisation. Likewise trumps disowning the poor, immigrants, healtcare for the poor. As the saying goes … with trump don’t bother with his words, look what he does.
Shame upon them, fakery of the highest order.
We need jolting to realise where we are going ie methane release, interconnected feedback systems, loss of oceanic life/ food chains. Its obvious world food production will suffer badly, goodness knows how that will pan out ….
