… trump is not credible from whatever angle.

Personally I can’t stand to hear his voice, the voice of a bragging pretending un-educated way too far elevated B/S’er. A con-man basically … ask his many (many) creditors from previous decades and failed enterprises.

In normal life we have qualifications to gain, experience to be accrued, time to be served as in gaining that experience which will place us in a position appropriate to our abilities.  Not this fella, a second rate tv prog and wham he gets into the Oval Office. His hobby is his Big Boy marker, how many times am I mentioned in the NY Press today?

This peculiar tele-prompter foul-up is purveyed as a speech from the President of the United States, how standards have slipped! Military man on our right looks a total nervous wreck and I suppose WH Eunuch Pence is in obeyance somewhere. Apparently trumps entrance was highly ‘stage-managed’ ie bright light, silhouette, etc etc. trump is a nobody.

Is trump ‘on something’ ? … certainly seems to me he is, note the sniffling, the pursed strange mouth posture, WTF? If this were anyone else a drug test would be called for.

Where are our critical faculties? The world deserves better than this.

When is idiocy going to be called out for what it is?

This is awful !

 

I haven’t the patience to listen to all of this turgid drone, but as listening carefully to little bits of the garbage and mangled incomprehensible junk he spews as a so called message to the Nation note how he gets word mangled into absolute nonsense. And we are all expected to swallow this junk?  I’ve only sampled little bits …

06:23 ‘tolerited’

06:50 ‘accompliments’

etc. Its as if listening to a four year old.

You can see in his eyes, the eyes of all of them this address is a risky venture. These are NOT honest men.

This demonstrates quite clearly he is unfit for Office, has poor reading ability, of limited intellectual ability below most adults and of very limited vocabulary.

trumps words are weasel, his words are worthless.

I think the man on our right is thinking “This ace turd is really stretching my patience”. In fact they all look extremely nervous as to how this pillock will be able to read two teleprompter screens and come anywhere near to a) credible  b) fool anyone, c) get hired for next season.

Can’t anyone remember 2003 and Iraq, how we were all conned and sleep walked into a huge blunder. Being conned the ‘intel’ was rock-solid ie we MUST do this. No we don’t, let sleeping dogs lie, the alternatives and consequences of action are horrible.  Why must the USA act as complete idiots when it comes to the Middle East?

I can hear the same thing again, ordinary people saying “We must do this” when all they have is spoon-fed uncorroborated spiel from a few numskulls that think they know best and have their secret agenda to work towards.

Increasingly I’m finding the web and google quite tricky as a means of getting correct information, firefox was useful, this newer m/c with windows 10 is a clunking ad machine. Never mind, heres the UK Financial Times, which can be regarded as top league and I assume credible.

Planting trees will not work.

Why do I not hear people say that planting trees is not a valid solution to climate change / CO2 conversion ?

Plankton, algae and diatoms will or could save us, have until now performed an indispensable part of Earth system balance but are now severely compromised so I’m afraid the idea of oceanic assistance is a non-starter. I doubt either at this point in time the suggestion ‘plant trees in northern regions’ ie the UK will do much good as a valid solution to C02 conversion.  Those nearer the Equator will I hope help, they keep their leaves all year round I think, but increasing desertification and alteration of previously established ‘steady state’ weather systems that are now no longer dependable, I fear are in flux.  So time to get tough with the robber barons, the rapists of the Rain Forest, the nasty above the law types that scramble to make money from Rain Forest and its destruction.

Trees might be a problem in that we haven’t the time to wait for their growth, nor their withdrawl from participating in CO2 conversion once methane hits.

Heres my reasons that the much bandied ‘planting trees to save the planet’ is hollow, a sacrificial fix-all and I fear will not work…

  • here uk trees are without leaves half the year.
  • trees do not rise to counter the effects of increasing C02 … they will fail.
  • changing weather patterns (prob fr the worst) means most trees will be pissed off, drought etc they will fail.

Which means we are stuck with I assume conifererous plantations. I do also hope we can get planting schemes and Local Authorities to work away from their beloved Rowan, near a blight to my mind and the beloved oak is so often overlooked. The time-frame in using trees, even fast-browth conifers as generally supposed is unworkable for the task in hand. Nice idea but it trips up on itself upon examination. Therefore we need technological carbon capture.

Lately on bbc radio news theres lots of examination of the numbers of trees to be planted as incorporated in ‘election pledges’ in the run-up to the election, such numbers are quite worthless at this stage and not worth the airtime, only the results will matter five and ten years from now and we know fine well it will be a fraction of the lowest contender. I think perhaps that is what they were explaining, the nonsense pledges peddled as ‘could be’ reality.  Look at the idiocy of agricultural policy when farmers were paid to take trees out and bycatch at sea was rendered useless and dumped or used as landfill. We seem to be very poor at managing things, of arriving at common-sense practical solutions, of properly husbanding the Earth. However in bbc radio news they have done fine effort at de-bunking the untrue nonsense for instance from Sajid Javid re homeless / rough sleeping from a few days ago. The prog ‘More or Less’ this morning 10th Dec 2019 at 0900 bbc r4 put it well, Javid was talking deliberate nonsense.

Part of a workable solution has to be quite drastic universal population control, it will happen anyway but better do it in a controlled, accepted manner (contraception)  than the screaming and lamentation of an unwanted end to nine tenths of the Earths human passengers. A little rubber bag will save us.

 

 

 

 

ivanka trump…

… sorry but you don’t get caps.

Interesting article in the UK Guardian, demonstrates to be most careful when attempting to appear cleverer than you really are; interesting link in that a window opens to erudition, the lives of people long ago, material that we can learn from.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/nov/23/ivanka-trump-tweet-de-tocqueville-factcheck

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

Funny the wiki mentions Metz, a place been rattling around my head from a couple of day now, its a small world at times.

I often wonder to what extent the key-clicking social media ie twitter outreach by the trumps is in fact performed by some lackey with an hour to spare. These are strange people indeed and most certainly should not be anywhere near the White House. Also strange that criticism can be so stymied once self-interest, ego and greed kicks in.

Why is it the trumps soil most everything they touch, are oblivious to the honourable truth? Ace hoodwinkers.

Meanwhile, trumps bizarre, nonsensical and offensive withdrawl from the Paris climate accord, destruction of the EPA, the insane roll back of so many hard won advances on environment and pollution is tantamount to a war crime.

During trumps fake tenure ignorance rules.

 

 

plastics recycling is mostly pretence.

I’d like to think I’m wrong but I doubt it, most plastic is not recyclable, its just heaps of unmanageable crap, plain and simple and often is transported to another unseen country across the planet. Its too small its too jumbled and of too great a volume to be capable of micro-processed to any satisfactory level, the economics of it do just not work for an ethical outcome.

What really bugs me is endlessly there is never any mention of the profound difference between thermoplastics and thermo-setting plastics, the same difference as a vacuum formed food tray and a resin/phenolic based fibreglass component. Some will reform and some just char and become useless. This is day one hour one of any materials course at day release technical college or thirteen year old  science / chemistry school lesson and is utterly fundamental to any consideration or  understanding of how to recycle.

Not exactly the clearest explanation … https://www.difference.wiki/thermoplastics-vs-thermosetting-plastics/

Clearer … https://www.modorplastics.com/plastics-learning-center/thermoset-vs-thermoplastics/…

Its also fundamental we navigate away from short life throw away food and provisions that arrive in such small and tricky to recycle packaging.  Its also endemic with pharmaceutical and say vetinary products, often over-designed and plastics technology gone mad. It is the smallness itself of the discarded parts being part of the problem. In my own lifetime I can remember Co-op blue paper bags for dry goods, filled as required when out shopping. In a sense our own disaster is written into the so-called present day solutions we have arrived at.

Food is over-packaged and too few people cook from scratch.

Here below is the article that prompted me to write this post … https://unearthed.greenpeace.org/2019/07/01/for-the-sake-of-the-climate-we-must-stop-believing-magical-stories-about-plastics-and-recycling/

 

Bill Maher at his best …

I was going to use the title ‘What would a dick do … ” but maybe google frowns on such direct address … instead we can read the title Bill Maher at his best and hear how the Republicans or more accurately the twisted self interest of over-wealthy benefactors can turn the ear of what should be a democratic process; wow America is hijacked !!!

btw … money DOES corrupt.

I am baffled …

I had held YaleClimateConnections as worthwhile and a valid source for climate change info, not that I’m much of an avid watcher of these things, I’ve a life to lead and have gleaned full well where we are heading. When will the penny drop that ppl have not the time for presentations of say fifteen minutes, youtube has many other items that need to be scanned as quickly as possible, an attached precis in document form would be mighty handy.  But this mornings visit has me baffled. For instance at 02:40 we are told “by 2100” (a misnomer in itself) that I quote loosely …  “Permafrost carbon feedback by 2100 ‘is’ smaller, much smaller than human fossil fuel emissions” … EH ! ? “Its about ten percent of that” …. CRIKEY. Sorry, invert your arguament then factor in a move of the decimal point.

I find this misinformation and crap hard to stomach. Methinks there is skewed thinking, Orwellian newspeak in action; its called trump, the EPA putting the screws on. Maybe shrouded as a general balm to quell any mass hysteria? IPCC is not much better, its most recent foray into ‘forecasting’ I think I’m right in saying deliberately did not include material contributed by Prof Peter Wadhams the worlds expert on Arctic ice and forgot to factor in Arctic methane !!!

Earlier the first nugget of wisdom in this pointless misinformation from Yale is of the plant life re-colonising and will transform some areas of thawing permafrost / methane release to a nett uptake ie 00:50 and onto 01:00 ! Blimey … now that is real optimism gone crazy. Sorry but even a child would say a thin layer of green encroachment is far outnumbered by the dirty soup of thawing permafrost that in itself provides physical depth and bulk, coupled with and absence of oxygen to generate the dreaded methane that is 80-120 times he potency of the already dreaded CO2. Short term potency is all we need consider, human life will not be here to see it extend to the medium term. Remember too that with increasing CO2 and methane green growing things actually back down and go into reverse in their much needed conversion. Already diatom / algal populations and conversion are going into reverse, also diatom / bryozoan symbiosis on coral reef needs explaining clearly, not just the glib ‘bleaching’. Yesterday even, reading of the tiny numbers of remaining Right Whale and the loss of their principal food no mention is made that it is the loss of lower food chain, again diatoms/ algae that will probably be at the root of this problem.

Maybe I should have been a scientist, I hope I could get at the truth better than this.

 

Theres nothing in this presentation / vid that i can let go unchallenged, its back to back misinformation and nonsense, its endless and what is most alarming is that its issued June 2019!

“The abrupt thaw could represent about a half of the total permafrost climate feedback” at 02:50 …  in my opinion try 1,000 % plus.

“If we can slow down human carbon emissions” … no its all set in motion, nice optimism, but interconnected feedback loops and the workings of nature are so very stacked against us ie 03:25

“Hit our economy” …. yes indeed!

This is like something made by twelve year olds.

 

 

postscript … note the term ‘restricted grammar and limited vocabulary’ … reminds one of the Idiot in Chief presently occupying (sometimes) the Oval Office.

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

One could say quite fairly that in this fag paper thin layer that we inhabit viewing the world as a childs football (ie 0.001in on an eight inch sphere) … drilling and capturing mostly the oil and gas from ancient diatoms that has upset the equilibrium which first allowed humankind to thrive and therefore latterly upset the amazing and horrifying multiplicity of feedback loops have now been forced to realign to the newly introduced contaminants and effluent that now trigger the chemical formula and physical  laws that are quite unstoppable.

trumps refusal and crowbar silencing (as with YaleClimateConnections above) are far worse than any war crime and he should be tried as such. Whilst we’ve got people in the dock maybe Carl Benz, Rudolf Diesel and Henry Ford are to be answerable. Strange but true.
