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EPA trussed up, everyone fearful, scientific ethics and knowledge banished for fear of retribution ie sackings, budgets withdrawn etc.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.

Debunking the Trump Administration’s New Water Rule

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.

The article says it all … https://e360.yale.edu/features/open-for-business-the-trump-revolution-on-public-lands

It baffles me that the Republicans hang by their nails to protect the tenure of trump and allow such greedy and exploitative businesses to rob and rob again.

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 ….
