V interesting youtube, here we fly alongside a chemtrail and it is blindingly obvious the thing does not diminish or disappear as would a bona-fide common or garden contrail ie conventional accepted result of jets flying.
The chemtrail hangs there undiminished with its burden of aluminium, barium, strontium etc. In time it will haze wider, providing a duller sky often where it is not wanted and altering the sky to a man-made one.
It is ‘free-borne’ aluminium that increases wildfires, most likely contributes to bee decline / dementia (essential pollinators) … increases autism in children and destroys life in lakes and rivers and in my opinion is the death of diatoms, something never seen by the naked eye but are where we obtain 70% of the worlds oil and gas reserves! Likewise coral reef diatom/ bryozoan symbiosis has been pummelled. The latter scientists seem silent about, as also with the catastrophic Pacific seabird die-offs of three and four years ago. Tens of thousands bizarrely flying toward land all with empty stomachs. Excessive caution coupled with two and three year peer review is not helping this situation, likewise trumps dismantling of the EPA and gagging any knowledgable scientist from speaking out loud is quite despicable and in fact quite evil.
If trump is not actually trying to play God aided and abetted by his sordid backers and cohorts then he is most certainly an assailant of God and Nature.
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.
A man that is fascinated with such things and he too talks of diatoms – a vast genus that will prove so crucial to this planets unfortunate demise as we know it, for instance symbiosis with coral reef ie Bryozoans and its the exploitationof ancient oil and gas from diatoms ( 70% originates from diatoms) that with cruel irony is our demise. Diatoms produce DMS a gas discovered by James Lovelock in the 1970’s that is fundamental in weather systems / cloud formation out in the oceans, likewise diatoms provide 20% of the worlds CO2 to O conversion. And invisible to the naked eye. No expensive microscope, a secondhand students microscope set to low mag ie x100 will do all you want.
Interesting to see Lynn Margulis, i have a most fascinating book here, beautifully illustrated bought say twenty years ago ‘What is Life’ exploring the ideas of Ernst Shrodinger and his book of three quarters of a century ago. Note Sagan as in wife of Carl.
Another book, important and packed with knowledge is James Lovelock ‘Gaia’ a most incredible Independant Scientist, i’ve also his autobiography a very interesting read, easy too. But the Gai I have here suffers from too much colour in its explanations, more confusing than helpful in many cases. Never mind, i’m sure James Lovelock can hardly be held responsible once the publishers get their hands on it.
Why such destruction? Is this a so-termed bycatch? A most heinous waste. For years in the UK we have suffered as European fishing fleets took what was for centuries regarded as the entitlement of UK fishermen. To fishing ports along the UK coast the EU symbolises utter insanity, likewise the up till now EU regard to bycatch.
Practicality and common sense was never a strong point for the EU.
Its looking to me that fishermen seem always inclined to reap and then rape the seas of its bounty, witness the falling fish stocks around the world, Grand Banks, North Sea etc. Desperate for catch, unable to leave it alone. Can we say that this is fuelled by a desire to conform to a continual desire for growth? theres a lot to be said for keeping things local, low key, modest. It is this conventional (is it termed The Classical Economic model) standard western economic model that is in part leading to our demise. A term never used these days is ‘the consumer society’ yet all around me i see neighbours hooked in to wanting more, bigger and better when often ‘more modest’ would be sufficient. No wonder its so easy with advertising to catch sales for whatever new toy, holiday, villa abroad, gizmo or SUV is becoming available.
Its difficult to get up-to-date information on this, i am also ‘stuck for time’; three and four years ago there was massive Pacific seabird collapse and likewise with oceanic diatom collapse whenever I ask online questions I never get a reply.
