UK Bee decline.

Bee decline 5th Sept 2020. Again these last few days the sad spectacle of bees clinging mostly immobile to flowering shrubs after a wet night or moderate rain shower is baffling to me, sodden black lumps that i doubt can recover.

I’m no expert but what is stopping foraging bees from reading the forthcoming weather / impending rain and not seeking safety? Its horrendous to see them moving so slowly, clinging on but signs of life hardly there. I need to know more of this but theres next to nothing online, so perhaps a beekeepers association will help me.

Last night at a favourite place here in North East England I was able to get out onto one of my unfortunately less regular opportunities to take a walk and a beautiful patch of round leaved mint I’ve known for near three decades had the same situation of stranded obviously unwell bees clinging, luckily this time sort of dry-ish and not sodden to black as seen on the Balotta (only light rain shower say an hour previous) one flower stem having three stranded bees all within an inch of one another. I note also I could not see any pollen sacs, as is often the case lately, as if they are not collecting anything. I noticed the same at a local reclaimed landfill / nature reserve nearby, a place I’ve introduced two dozen north British plant species, busy bees in bright sunshine but no pollen sacs, is there nothing for them to collect (or unable to collect) on a thirty yard patch of flowering heather? 

A cutting from my aunties Balotta psuedodictamnus of thirty years ago thrives here and each late summer attracts lots of bees and suchlike, a valuable fill in. Again the other morning stranded immobile bees, seemingly alive … but just ! Certainly theres less hoverflies and less butterflies this summer.

What are the reasons for my seeing these poor bedraggled specimens, I’m sure I’ve not seen anything like it before ? I’ve read already a couple of years ago that beekeepers are having to add supplementary feed to their hives each winter, adding more than they used to. People seem reluctant to realise all these downturs and the dreaded two or more like three year peer review for scientific papers is far too slow in this age of terminal decline, amazingly my words were echoed on bbc r4 a few weeks ago that climate change scientific papers and reports need to be fast tracked.

See my previous post on the same subject ie bee decline.

I wonder of chemtrail aluminium and the probable to highly likely dementia connection, one can find online the possibility of such a problem being discussed, bees and chemtrail aluminium and dementia. With less air traffic there are far fewer chemtrails these last few months but for instance yesterday was an obvious ‘aluminized sky’ (my term) drifting in and well concealed as when viewed on NASA Worldview; last Monday 31 August (a UK Bank Holiday) the chemtrails were numerous and obvious persisting throughout the day, slackening mid afternoon, at least obvious if your mind is open to these things and not blinkered and brainwashed by general media. www.Flightradar24.com allowed me to log the flights, even to predict approaching flights with a high chance of success as leaving a chemtrail streak in the sky THAT IS NOT JUST A CONDENSATION TRAIL. Note contrails last only a minute, the dreaded chemtrails linger, drift causing haze and at extremes v definitely alter the cloudscape. These are observable facts. For instance here in NE England listed below (not a complete list) most were from Germany heading stateside, for instance flight KLM641 Amsterdam to NY; flight .

Chemtrails observable overhead morning of Monday Bank Holiday 31 August 2020, NE England in order of appearance:-

0750 UTC flight SK539,

0820 UTC flight DLH9LY,

1009 UTC flight KLM31,

DLH430 (Frankfurt to Chicago) i need to check,

AAL71 (Frankfurt to Dallas) i need to check,

1019 UTC DLH456,

wow ….. 1202 UTC KLM641,

another v obvious chemtrail 1300UTC flight UA988

The above only a brief observation whilst I have other things to do. I shall check each Monday and see if this is a regular routine. In my thirty months of chemtrail observation I have been vigilant to see routine and regularity to this unrequested chemtrail activity.

I never speak to anyone about chemtrails now, the type of person that refutes my observations has probably never had an original idea in their entire lives (I’ve had many) never given the subject any direct consideration and yet theres a kneejerk ‘they know better’ !!!

cov19 has some good to it in that carbon producing personal mobility has undergone a serious rethink and definite alteration in peoples mindset and practices, this is exactly what we need and i think this would have been the only way this could have been implemented.

cov19 here in the UK has been poorly handled, the disjoint twixt governemt pronouncements on testing and the inefficient reality is abysmal. The Boris Johnson / Cummings comedy act was a disaster from the start, Cummings has propelled himself by hoodwinking and clever nonsense to a position way beyond his abilities, universally hated, he is a quite nasty piece of work.

What with trump over in the States and the lamentable Johnson / Cummings gruesome comedy act and cov 19 and the forthcoming Brexit shambles (ask any Nissan worker at Sunderland) anyone exporter or importer (ie better stock up on tinned food)… plus the really not impressive performance of Rishi Sumac a man much complimented but in reality too young, too inexperienced and really nothing to demonstrate any particular ability … all things add up to one hell of a dire winter waiting ahead for us all. Economically we have been held back far too much.

One big important point hardly anyone mentions is how CRUDE the cov 19 statistics really are. Its all lumped together as one ill-defined mas, yes there are deaths but overwhelmingly a big proportion are those in the twilight of their years that no way could they ever could fight the cov19 virus, it would be sad to see them in the struggle, the ventilator etc. Sadly their death inevitable. But why should these frail folk God bless ’em weigh down the stats and make the UK cripple itself willingly, shoot itself in the foot. Theres probably more citizens die on the roads yet we still go driving. BBC r4 in their excellent ‘More or less’ radio programme with Tim Harford has done as always excellent work on unravelling government stats and spin. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qshd

Witness the fiasco of the official start this week of HS2 Midlands rail link, if ever a pointless project it is HS2, again there needs to be a rethink, the cost of it and a now altered travel pattern for everyone. The misery this has already caused now has no justification that we are a cov19 society. Increasingly with the worlds business and encounters are digital, what are the mysterious goods that the Government thinks it will need transported along HS2 ? Existing infrastructure I’m sure could withstand a few more carriages if need be.

Rambling today yes, but theres too much going wrong at once that i can not let go unmentioned.

To tie up this post here luckily NASA Worldview has captured some of the mornings chemtrail shenanigans, my guess is that data is collected mid / late morning perhaps noon and here on my computer we can access NE England from say 2pm. The lines are chemtrail, it is not contrail and will grow / expand and add we are told aluminium, barium and strontium to what we breath and what is deposited on the earth; remember that fine particle aluminium is an incendiary, my guess as to why California burned / burns the way it does …. they have had this for years. The trajectory matches the aircraft and flightpath as found from http://www.flightradar24 and direct observation of the skies above.

….. how do we now add pics and files with this crappy new ‘editor’ format ?

This new ‘block’ obsession by WP at first glance is utter garbage, is trash, overcomplicated nonsense; but luckily a day later I’ve been able to post an image so as long as i can do this its sufficient for me. Next problem is trying to find how I can access my library of pics already here at WP. I must admit wanting $220 for a years return to ‘Classic Editor’ is lunacy.

Here below for 8th Sept 2020 northern Spain ie https://go.nasa.gov/2R2dXyu

And the day previous, as what I’m starting to call ‘chemday Mondays from Europe’ there is as per last week evidence of chemtrails over North Sea, Holland and Germany to eastern England. ie 7th Sept 2020 and the link is … https://go.nasa.gov/3jYs5Fc

Clicking the above link you will also see chemtrail further west along the English Channel.

Most days you can find chemtrail somewhere around Europe or the UK. Be warned NASA Worldview is only a snapshot for late morning / lunchtime and probably in my opinion only provides a one third chance of finding chemtrail by this means.

Chemtrails.

UK chemtrail diary, 4th week May 2020. As observed from south east Northumberland, England.

Increasingly an ‘aluminized sky’ (my term) these last few days and today Friday is sort of taking the mickey. Seven parallel chemtrails at say 3pm, quite a strong deposition, certainly not fading, certainly not a conventional and harmless ‘condensation trail’ trending roughly N-S (pic to follow). The day started extraordinarily bright blue and aluminized hazing developed / drifting in as the day proceeds. Earlier this week the trend was for aluminized drift-in from the west, NASA Worldview helps in seeing this but is not a 100% catch-all; I give it only a one in three chance of grasping the picture. What is worse is flightradar24.com, no sign whatsoever on playback of yesterdays three successive stacked circles at 11:30am or of todays seven parallel chemtrails at 3pm, all BST.

Heres a link to Friday chemtrails over the English Channel …. https://go.nasa.gov/2McOSOJ … but of course nothing of what we are looking / seeing up here in Northumberland.

Yesterday on Worldview we can see a little of the chemtrail material captured ie https://go.nasa.gov/36OGXko … as usual the Irish Sea and western Scotland get plenty of chemtrail.

Why are people so apathetic, why is next to no-one else taking notice? I don’t want to get blogging on this again, at 430 posts I’ve done my bit, I need to live my life, other things to do.

Previous day Thursday 28th May 2020 we had three huge stacked circles over the coast say Amble direction, I even remember this phenomena say four or five years ago before I became turned on to the chemtrail idea but that time it was north of Morpeth.  I watched as each of the successive circles was created, I’m guessing a single plane.

Basically we are being pooped on, it certainly is not fairy dust but in fact generally held to be aluminium nano-particles. Theres 430x posts on this blog, lots to see as photographic eveidence and links and reasons to be wary. ie toxicity to the freshwater and marine food chain, bees, insects, earthworms, creating incendiary landscapes (ie California wildfires were prob chemtrail aluminium induced) etc etc … please dig into this blog

It baffles me how ordinary people are blind to the chemtrails above.

Lines in the sky mid-Feb 2020.

These lines do not disappear quickly as should conventional aircraft condensation trail but in fact increase as the minutes pass and half an hour later can result in a man-made haze ….. ask any Californian or resident of the Baltic Sea area, Portugal, Spain, Italy, the Black Sea etc.

Due to these lines in the sky retired Fisheries Biologist Francis Mangels and many others link this to increased and I state here alarming levels of free-borne aluminium ie present as a toxic elemnt, not bonded as it should ordinarily be in nature. Witness seabird die off, lack of life in water ie from diatoms to caddis and higher.

Note trump has the USA and particularly the EPA trussed up, everyone fearful, scientific ethics and knowledge banished for fear of retribution ie sackings, budgets withdrawn etc. trump too is now disassembling the American Intelligence community, he also has done the same by installing stooges to do his bidding, lets hope Mr Barr can reclaim his self respect and fight this evil. Fingers crossed Mitt Romney can fight this avalanche of disaster known as trump. As at mid-Feb 2020 we now have the pardoning of white-collar crooks and Stone laughing all the way to the Bank.

Recall trump endlessly repeating he was going to ‘drain the swamp’? trump will do anything to catch votes, anything to feed his absurd extreme money obsessed and unreal, unethical, immoral outlook. Sitting there with his Big-Boy Marker he scans the newspapers for mention of his name, hardly able to read, most certainly not intending to read (witness his absurd and embarrassing teleprompter wrangles) and certainly never picking up anything new from the printed word. Its not even his own fingers that push out the tweets. The machinery of nature to use a Paul Erlich book title is now set in revolution to dissolve ice-caps, unfreeze the much needed permafrost and release both terrestrial and subsea methane, merely a slight sea level rise will unhinge the multiple Antarctic ice shelf and now weather systems are working against the tiny little humans that scurry around, most certainly nature laughs last. Meanwhile clown trump inhabits the White House …

Below I include lucky glimpses of chemtrail here in NE England these last few days. Its near impossible at this stage of the climate game to impress upon anyone that these things are undesirable and mock a so-called free society, only time will prove me right.  In my opinion it is free-borne nano-particle aluminium as the reason California wildfires burned the way they did. There must be a reason for chemtrail but I cannot work it out, I am wary of that dreaded term ‘conspiracy theory’ thrown around, bandied with little thought behind it; which is in fact something we are not very good at these days ie ‘thinking’ … no time, no rest from little screens and endless un-needed information. The bright and clever will still gain academic excellence but for the rest of us, the ordinary, I fear the ordinary person knows less now than for many generations previously, likewise this two-edged so-called wonderful thing the web far too easily feeds prejudice and polarises thought, the web hardly seems to nurture tolerance and compassion particularly among the less advantaged that are not used to evolving a balanced consideration, a discussion. I’ve always thought that in schools rhetoric, the art of talking and discussion needs to be more fully embraced.

 

 

 

 

I also use NASA Worldview (see prev posts) which only gives me a hint say a third max of chemtrail activity as observed overheard here in NE England, but at least allows me to look at Spain, Bay of Biscay, Balearics, Italy, Baltic Sea, North Sea, English Channel etc that receive a lot of chemtrail.

 

Obtaining better web results …

… is mostly better when I switch back to the old stack ie firefox and XP O/S. Immediately I can get at the info I’m looking for, the newer windows 10 is like a straightjacket re results and also the O/S interface is abysmal.

Immediately I find a website that is new to me, firstly melting permafrost and secondly a Jan 15 2020 article of yet again seabird die-off. My own hobby horse and fascination has been algae and plankton and my concern with the hardly barely reported loss of diatoms, the irony being 70% of the worlds oil and gas is derived from ancient deposits accrued from diatoms. And oh yes … every fifth breath we take we owe to the oxygenating properties of diatoms.

I’m also still vexed that trump and his crooked hangers-on waste the news cycle and the time of adults when we have better things to be attending to ie climate change.

trump ever the evil clown…

trumps performance at Davos as everywhere he goes is repugnant to any caring, free thinking sensible citizen, in the last couple of days all we hear is trump carnage and apparent ineptitude, but however the gold plated turd does in fact seem to have some ie a little energy and momentary focus, witness the removal of wetland protection and environmental safeguards for water quality … like that runny clear thing that is the cornerstone to a families establishment and a communities survival.

Destruction and the lowest common denominator is the trump byword, nothing good comes from trump. He is a showman, a fairground barker, a Father Coglan; trump mobilises hate. trump has no real ethical talent, he just knows that de-stabilising the sludge at the bottom of the barrel might just keep him in Office.

I particularly am horrified at trumps absolute refusal to take notice of the natural world (ie that thing outside the window that makes the clouds roll by) …  of climate and how quickly unfriendly feedbacks are cascading into a most horrible scenario.

It beggars belief the White House has sunk so low, the web / social media aiding his prospects enormously.

I think the above image ie NY Times doesn’t quite help us realise that it is running water that is under threat, that people and communities DOWNSTREAM expect better and deserve better than in the days of old.

Here the friendly folk at conservapedia at great time and effort list the vigour at which trump and his motley crew strip and de-establish hard won safeguards, trumps big-time business owner chums must be hardly be able to believe their luck at low IQ low attention span Donald twitching and jumping at every callous request … https://www.conservapedia.com/Donald_Trump_achievements:_Energy_and_environmental_policy

The term ‘existential impasse’.

When a seasoned, experienced no frills highly regarded Scientist (and many like him) use the term ‘existential impasse’ and stresses the absolute need for real world CO2 draw-down and which entails developing the technique and then implementing practical solutions with apparatus (huge apparatus) on a multi-scale Manhattan Project style venture around the globe and that these things we know are not happening in any forseeable large scale venture, then we know our days as a species are numbered. At least of those that are of ordinary means and not of obscene and excessive wealth who for a time will be able to bypass the inevitable (I’m thinking methane release, East Siberian Ice Shelf). Remember trees are no good, once increased CO2 hits as well as the methane the trees will shrink from the task, a question of timescale too, but never mind, pretend, its good for planetary sanity.

Here is a regular ‘must-see’, which you can see prompted my title of using the quote ‘existential impasse’. https://arctic-news.blogspot.com/2019/12/planetary-arson-and-amplifying-feedbacks-no-alternative-to-co2-drawdown.html

Look at the multi lane freeways, look at the adoration of huge personal vehicles, dinosaurs on wheels, can anyone detect a lessening of this fixation? No, men still want their big toys and outward success still has the same talismans to display. Of consumption, red meat, food waste, far too many airflights merely for leisure, diesels idling needlessly whilst the other person shops, everything spun and tumble-dried when the washing line used to suffice,  food flown in from across the world, excessive lighting when not needed, the American burger culture, hubris and ego. No wonder we are struggling as a species and throwing all the others into jeopardy.

This year theres no short-eared owls to be seen here in NE UK, therefore we can assume vole populations are down (their food chain also) and how is the earthworm faring as chemtrail aluminium wreaks whatever destruction is unseen by most people.  Already we know insect populations are much reduced hence songbird food sources are much scarcer, bees are critical, its supposedly dementia, again another nano-particle aluminium tie-in. By the time we get it as confirmed peer-reviewed scientific findings it will all be too late.

And heres a little idea of mine, living and spending much time so close to agricultural land, the landscape,  a century ago stone walls were much commoner, we even had ‘hemels’ dotted around the agricultural landscape here in the North of England, ideal habitat / housing for small mammals and nesting sites. These days the vogue is for wire fencing and often with wildlife margins allowed, but its nothing near like the value of a stone wall, or winter protection for sheep for instance. Another example of how ‘we’ are trying so hard to be clever but absolutely missing the point. No-one observes, no-one evaluates, no critical thinking, what at one time would be termed the umbrella term COMMON SENSE.

I’m using a Mark Gertler painting below as what I perceive as the Merry-go-round of consumption, they all look hell bent on enjoying themselves, noisy and blind. The year 1916 and how very observant of Mark.

Microplastics and ocean health.

Two quick n easy films, thought provoking and incorporating two of my favourite interests, diatoms and the microscope.

One salient point drawn from each film:

  • Our salt contains microplastics (remember the blood / brain barrier) that only become visible when examined with a quite simple bench microscope.
  • Every fifth breath we make is supplied by the function of diatoms.

Diatoms appear to be now severely compromised, in my simple google searches its near impossible to obtain up to date information. I’ve read several times that diatom CO2 to O conversion is equivilant to the value of the rain forests for the same task. ie 20% contribution to world CO2 to O.

 

 

Most of the microscope footage is pretty well as you would see it at home with a medium price bench microscope. A spend of say £100-200 for a secondhand ‘scope would do all you want. I use a binocular Biolam obtained from a microscopical society here in the UK thirty years ago and was available as the original user had failing eyesight and had to go into care. I seldom use anything other than low mag for algal samples, diatoms etc say x100, of the four powers available I only use the lower two. Theres no need to buy new.

Note also that diatoms produce a gas DMS that was only in the 1970’s detected by independent scientist James Lovelock as is very important for oceanic weather systems.

 

The other big question I need to find out about is present contamination from nano-particle aluminium, as in the embedded youtube of around three posts ago ‘Lines in the Sky’ professional (retired) fisheries biologist Frances Mangels tells us that nano-particle aluminium is a billionth of a metre ie one thousandth smaller than particles of tobacco smoke. If my reading of this and my arithmetic is sound, we can write this as :-

tobacco particle = 1m x 10 power minus 6 (written 10^-6) ie take off three 0’s for a metre to millimetre conversion which gives 0.001mm ie one thousandth of a millimetre.

nano-particle aluminium = 1m x 10 power minus 9 (1m x 10^-9) will be one thousandth of the above ie 0.000001mm which in my opinion is way beyond what can be detected with an ordinary light microscope.

hint : remember 10^-2 mm is one hundredth ie 0.01mm  therefore 10^-3 is one thousandth ie 0.001mm

In my opinion its always much easier to talk as dec fraction of a millimetre (mm) when dimensions are sub-millimetre. As a practical engineer this is ALWAYS how it would be handled, far less room for error.

Realise that nano-particle aluminium is a far far smaller an aluminium particle that could ever occur in nature and therefore poses threats we would never have dreamed of.

As I write this piece we have an aluminised sky above, a strange grey, yesterday Sat 28 Dec 2019 was a lot of chemtrail over Europe as found on NASA Worldview and when out this morning 0930 yet again there are chemtrails being laid at high alt. Do many register this, anyone question it ???

Trumps ongoing caustic and destructive tenure.

Freshwater mussel die off.

Blimey, this is worrying. I wonder also how the common earthworm is faring, without it we are snookered. Likewise plankton and remember marine diatoms are utterly essential. I hate to be a doomster but when things ‘get into gear’ re species loss it will all happen frighteningly fast ie a few years. Likewise in my opinion ice loss is being dreadfully under forecast, it seems to my mind laughable when we hear on serious news programmes “Greenland ice could all be gone by the end of the century”, even as a kid I can tell you ice goes a lot quicker than thought credible. More like ten years than eighty, just my guess that’s all.

I wonder if this freshwater mussel die-off is tied into aluminium levels from chemtrail, I also wonder at the diatom and algal populations in the river under question, the Clinch River. These last few days theres been plenty to see on NASA Worldview; but first, mussel die off links ….

Climate change, a laymans guide.

I often feel there is difficulty in finding or locating the latest on climate change ie increasing methane, ice loss, feedback loops etc.

This overview by Sam Carana holds up well, succinct and eminently digestible for the layman; I am a layman.   http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/p/extinction.html

It illustrates the stacking pernicious influences which in themselves arithmetically ensure sufficiently our downfall and even for this guaranteed scenario Sam Carana plays a light touch re the inevitable compounding and accelerating positive feedback loops that will push us into a whole new series of situations. Its all a quite dire mix, highly ironic as its mainly the consumption of oil and gas from ancient diatoms that has led to our demise, taking away the fundamental first layer of oceanic food chain and 20% of the worlds CO2 >O conversion. And yet no-one has ever seen a diatom with the naked eye.

I think I’m correct in saying it was independent scientist James Lovelock that discovered the gas DMS a product of oceanic plankton and its importance. I suggest read his autobiography, an instructive blend of practical science, talent and an independent thinking mind.

Also …  https://www.whoi.edu/oceanus/feature/dms–the-climate-gas-youve-never-heard-of/

Sam Carana in a more recent post highlights the disregard paid by the latest IPCC (Sept 2019) briefing / report in which NO FIGURE IS QUOTED for the effects of subsea methane in its three forms, frozen hydrates, microbial, capped gas deposits. The IPCC are criminal in this neglect. However not as criminal as donald trump in the rolling back and eradication of decades of wise strategies to husband the planet more sensibly; but of course trump would know nothing of the natural world.
