Things microscopic …

Exc pic of chalk as per White Cliffs of Dover … coccolithophores.

 

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.

Chemtrails UK

These last few days ….

Why are there trails that morph quickly to overall haze when it should be clear?

Why is it change, churn and turmoil, why not a steady state in the sky?

And days indicated as high pressure ruined with chemtrail haze. Its like that this morning, rapid changes, people tell me that rain is forecast (which I do not trust to happen …[but did]…) and now at 10am after clear at 7, dark at 9, its now wanting to be clear again. Light chemtrails all morning and the last few days also light chemtrail deposition. One could say this last week its little and often so as not to alarm the natives

Last few days have been only ‘light’ chemtrail effects but i think it was Saturday afternoon later on when the overall grey sky cleared and bingo above out of sight were the dreaded trails. Wednesday, a distinct trail 0600, half an hour later overall haze and light number of trails thereafter, as discussed prev we need a reporting system as per the old time radio communications RST  code ie 5-9 etc maybe I’ll invent it. Theres too many lone voices, but maybe thats a good thing – to reach our conclusions independantly rather that feeding off one another and mutually reinforcing. Objectivity must be the order of the day!

Beware of media / tv treatment of this, its bundled up with all sorts of nonsense so as to ridicule people like me.

Pics below are from 18th July – 27th July north east UK. Nothing spectacular as earlier this year, but still nefarious and needing to be understood. Likewise now its 10.30 and I can hear jets high above but hidden by the manufactured cloud and wonder if they too are laying more chemtrail?

 

 

Bottom left, note how the trail is interrupted or turned on and off.

Apart from the clever hatchet job from tv regarding these things, most people would  say its just jet trails. But why do they persist, can morph un-naturally quick, haze and quickly drift to form overall haze when it WAS a bright clear day. Theres the planes, theres the buggered day!! And why particular pockets of time when it seems so easy to see them ie an hour or two at breakfast, an hour or two at teatime. Remember, the massive aluminium levels where this has been happening for decades ie California and the horrible levels of autism in boys and no caddis in the streams and hence no trout to fish for and raging wildfire feeding on nano-particle aluminium fallen to the earth. I also have a feeling the chemtrail aluminium is affecting diatoms and algae, microscopic and utterly essential and fundamantal for most life on Earth. Diatoms don’t matter I hear …. thats where 70% of the worlds oil and gas is derived from ie ancient geological deposits. Its also the only material on this planet that allowed the Challenger and Shuttle to re-enter this atmosphere unfrazzled. A fascinating subject – diatoms. Its also thought aluminium from chemtrails is a major factor in bee decline, they develop Alzheimers.

Please see my previous posts on chemtrails, the photos prove theres something ‘going on’.

Look at my diary page started Aug 4th 2018, I’ll build up a few days material as diary entries. https://climate-change-briefing.com/2018/08/04/uk-chemtrails-diary/

Pressure from the money …

Same old story and frightening to think that ‘human pressure’ alone can seek out and render to ‘extinct’  things that should inhabit niche habitat every square mile. But farmers strive to take over and render uniform anything known as landscape, their abhorence of anything non-uniform and non-industrial in scale knows no bounds, their plough renders useless …. and really for what n’th purpose?

Streams, brooks, burns, ditches, puddles and ponds always interested me, I look back over my childhood and mostly it was starved of such things but luckily the village I moved to age seven had a flooded quarry and so there was  a wee chance of pretendy fishing once I got to know about it. To get excited for this topic google image for such as … diatoms, radiolarians, dinoflagellates, testate rhizopods, all are easily found by the amateur microscopist and something i think seemingly never included in anything by David Attenborough – I hope to be corrected as I don’t watch tv.  The former ie diatoms I think is responsible for 20% of the worlds CO2 to O conversion but no-one has ever seen one with the naked eye and also important for Oceanic cloud/weather systems; likewise it is burning ancient diatomaceous oil that has led to a) their demise and b) our own inevitable decline as a species. A pre-war copy of Strasburgers ‘Botany’ has a wonderful section ‘Cryptogams’ ie hidden things (microscopic) well worth seeking out, but it must be pre-war when the engravings  were so fascinating, latter day editions are cold and useless.

I subscribe to E360 from Yale and its a very good source of quality information. Todays article is heartening but also sad in that aquarium keepers are providing a very key and important role in keeping alive species of freshwater fish that are endangered or possibly extinct. Thinking about it, could we not create more bye-waters and secluded runnels that could acccomodate such fish? And thinking about it, in the west here generally there seems zero interaction between inhabitants and their environment; unless of course its some sort of (usually short-lived) volunteer group or funding initiative, the kind we see photographed in our local free papers. You can tell I’m not impressed. But wheres the staying power, inter-generational involvement or handing on of knowledge and experience … guess what…  its the 21st century and theres next to none.  Progress huh … bah humbug. All my own work has been at zero cost other than time and application, two dozen species at the pit-heap and activity elsewhere, note the three big patches of yellow flag iris when heading south over the local bridge here and the so-called wild flower area at H Park all volunter ‘group’ activity will be much eclipsed by my own unaided effort (other than drive and insight) a hundred yards further on.

I quote from this excellent E360 article …

The GWG maintains several species that are extinct in the wild and has boosted the fortunes of some. For example, the finescale splitfin (Allodontichthys polylepis) was only scientifically described in 1988. By 2010 it was thought to be extinct in the wild and there were only eight individuals left in captivity in Europe, in a Dutch hobbyist’s tank. Koeck brought these to the Vienna bunker “ark” and began a studbook-based breeding program to retain genetic diversity. There are now about 350 individual finescale splitfins being cared for by various GWG members, and in 2016 a GWG field trip rediscovered a wild population in a Mexican river. unquote.

Well worth subscribing, always interesting.

 

My friends the diatoms.

I started looking at diatoms in around 1992, absolutely fascinating as they slowly moved themselves around on the surface of the glass microscope slide. Show anyone a goog image search for diatoms and they will be fascinated. They are anywhere that at some time is a wet surface, puddles, among moss on moors, stones in streams, all over the seas and oceans. Diatoms are near the base of the food chain and utterly essential, they cannot be done without and likewise the larger more sophisticated phytoplankton feed on them, all of them are part of the CO2 conversion apparatus.

Seventy percent of the worlds oil and gas is derived from ancient diatomaceous oil trapped / contained beneath the earth and silica is used literally as the base (wafer) for doping and etching to make intergrated circuits and modern day electronics.

This recent article tells us things look bad for diatoms:-

“Most of these studies, however, have been conducted under high-iron conditions. Our study uncovers a widespread cellular mechanism that suggests high CO2 might be particularly problematic for phytoplankton growth in low-iron regions of the ocean.”

I quote  … In the largest of these regions, the Southern Ocean, concentrations of available iron are below one trillionth of a gram per liter, approaching the limit supporting life.

quote … The team then initiated a study to investigate the evolutionary relationships of transferrin and phytotransferrin. To their surprise, the proteins were functional analogs whose ancient origins extend to the pre-Cambrian period of Earth history, predating the appearance of modern plants and animals.

“The appearance of phytotransferrin some 700 million years ago is consistent with a time in Earth’s history marked by massive changes in ocean chemistry, and this ancient evolutionary history helps explain why no one has connected ISIP2A and transferrin,” said Miroslav Oborník, a molecular evolutionary biologist from the University of South Bohemia and co-author on the paper.

As in some gruesome joke we are just finding out about things as we are losing them. So, half our CO2 to O worldwide is from phytoplankton that now looks much stressed and likewise plant and tree CO2 conversion is modifying itself, shutting down as it were in reaction to the increased CO2 that they live among as per a previous post of mine with associated loss of planet cooling transpiration and protein as nutrient in leaves and pollen. Natural growing things, weather systems, the mechanisms of nature all look as if pre-programmed to dislike the present situation. Also bees and insects according to some are a tenth or nil of former populations and one cannot help but continue the line of the graph to the bottom. No bees observed in my garden this year to take all the pollen of my spring flowering bulbs, I noticed this decline quite easily three or four years ago. Today I shall have to pollinate all the crocus so that seed will be viable, I want to continue the spread of them here in my garden. Likewise not the former blue skies I expect of winter and spring, often ruined by non-fading chem trails and the quick-forming dreaded haze. It could be aluminium particles from weather modification ie the haze on clear blue (high pressure) mornings are to blame for the bee extinction, organic growers are struggling with much reduced yields and increasing disease which they think from the ally-rain. Even in my own garden a strange die-off on Hypericum, also rose leaf problems that are not the usual. The protein from green plants and pollen is merely two thirds of what it was.  There are so many declines that soon blog posts like mine will need to incorporate long lists of bullet points!
Meanwhile Scott Pruitt at the American EPA and trump have banned mention of ‘climate change’ dismissing or moving scientists and plagued us all with the nonsense of ‘fake news’ to further combat any reality leaking into their world …
Even the UK Daily Mail eight years ago is sounding an alert at ocean plankton loss, note the stunning image …. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1298596/Massive-40-decline-oceans-phytoplankton-puts-entire-food-chain-threat.html

I quote …

“By failing to adequately limit population growth, reassess the role of an economy rooted in growth, reduce greenhouse gases, incentivise renewable energy, protect habitat, restore ecosystems, curb pollution, halt defaunation, and constrain invasive alien species, humanity is not taking the urgent steps needed to safeguard our imperilled biosphere.”

Heres the full article …  https://academic.oup.com/bioscience/article/67/12/1026/4605229

Its difficult to get into peoples minds how disastrous even a 2C warming has become (and looks set to rise far higher)  we cannot see immediately weather systems responding to the increased feedback until it is way far too late, nor fully realise the interconnectedness of  ‘this beautiful machine’ we call Earth. Each identifiable system influences the other to a remarkable degree providing yet further increases in feedback and effects, a most potent and dangerous spiral and even now mechanisms and processes are just coming to light.

And what does Scott Pruitt at the EPA do … shut down all thought of such matters !!!

 

Heres news of Pacific die-back below from two years ago…. note at 01:20 no more birds are being brought in; at 01:40 we are told they are finding birds with no food in their stomachs. Likewise Francis Mangels tells us elsewhere of the collapse here and now of trout rivers, he’s a PhD on Entymology, lifelong Fisheries Professional and a grounded practical man … so he should know!  He says insect populations are down to a tenth of what they should be, Caddis fly are gone, wild trout have empty stomachs.  I need to know and have difficulty finding current information re diatom and plankton populations in the Pacific. I’m finding great big holes where I should be seeing information. Below, the first report is from the Bird Treatment and Learning Center, Anchorage, Alaska. http://www.birdtlc.org/

 

 

I need to find more re Pacific dieback and West Coast USA Fisheries but google cannot seem to provide very much new material. However, heres …  http://www.oregonlive.com/environment/index.ssf/2015/07/blob.html   … read of fisheries collapse, how sealions cannot provide milk or raise young anymore. And Pruitt and Artch Clown trump whistle-on as if nothings ocurring….

 

Interconnectedness of weather systems.

Every day or two I broach the subject of climate change with whoever / anyone and its hard for ‘ornery folk to realise how complex and interconnected are the effects of increased CO2 therefore global warming and the impact on weather systems, including Jet Stream, ocean circulation, Arctic ice loss, plankton, food chain disruption and collapse etc etc.

This morning we hear on UK radio news that the ocean circulation systems and pathways could well be for a greater disruption and modification that previously realised.  see second link below. Here in the UK we depend upon the Gulf Stream to keep us away from anything like Siberian winters.

https://scripps.ucsd.edu/news/climate-model-suggests-collapse-atlantic-circulation-possible

Its difficult for many at first to comprehend the interconnectedness of all this and the speed at which all of this is happening. Each system is subject to increasing ‘positive’ (ie disastrous) feedback, in turn influencing each other as further feedback which again spirals to further interconnectedness, feedback, change, feedback, change etc etc. Its as if some perhaps malevolent higher force has decided to hit the ‘wipe’ button.

page 3 – weather modification

 

Yesterday Feb 13th here northern UK a bright blue sky earlier in the morning (uh-uh …. a likely chem trail day?) ….  I never got time to see the sky from a more open aspect until late afternoon, hey presto parallel tracks in the sky of much faded aircraft trails depositing something un-natural. The usual hazy non-natural effect dulling what should have been a brighter afternoon. This really annoys me and its not easy to find definite explanations, like the clouds themselves the answers are mostly ‘hazy’.

 

California burned in a most un-natural way last summer and they have suffered chem trail deposition I assume for decades. And yet its still an intense drought. So where is the logic, where is the integrity of the so-called explanations that we are being expected to ‘swallow’. I’m assuming aluminium nano-particles have drifted to earth and aided the incendiary effect. Likewise its thought childhood autism my stem from these metals. Note I preface with ‘I assume’ or ‘in my opinion’ … I do not offer up data as truth when its merely my own conjecture or merely a ‘could be’. but as can be seen by anyone that reads these notes I do have a brain; increasingly rare in this age of successive tv generations.

The so-called explanations as to why these chem trails are allowed or their function do not ‘stack up’.

I’m a trifle tired of broaching ‘climate change’ to what I assume are reasonably intelligent and switched on ppl and getting  pushed back as alarmist or the dreaded term ‘conspiracy theory’, not far short of my hatred of the use of ‘cool’. Perhaps I don’t circulate among the right people, theres too much fantasy in the world now, too much disconnect from reality, as to how we make a living;  an absurd desire for a degree, often a degree of ‘nothing’ . Unfortunately we live in ‘interesting times’. As Orwell predicted mass media manipulation has exploded and all thanks to online, spin so extreme as to be outright lies, slogans and vague feel-good homilies (MAGA) that bear no relation ship to the outright wrecking from trump. Just as with Orwells ‘1984’ we are so easily tracked and profiled. I’ve known some ppl object to ID cards, I’m fine with the idea, its with our electronic connectivity thats the real danger. The latest absurd ‘must have’ electric smart meters are to my mind quite obscene and the ultimate BS.

So, how do farmers, raisers of livestock, growers of crops and fruit and insects themselves (ie the remaining 25% from forty years ago) view a future of engineered and therefore dull days?   If we’ve lost that many insects and pollinators then the outlook is either none or dominant species; likewise the loss of diatoms and plankton, essential for CO2>O conversion and the production of DMS a gas that is tied in with natures way of cloud formation.

Sea level rise is a ‘given’, anyone now in SFO, NY, London, Shanghai must have an increasing nagging doubt as to how things will look in ten years. The arctic has lost its sea ice but its Greenland and the Antarctic that will give us the ‘bulk’ in rising sea levels. The IPCC that brings together the nations of the world is so out of step, so lagging behind the curve as to be as much a hindrance as a benefit. On youtube we find the IPCC predicts summer sea ice in the arctic will disappear by 2080 – its gone NOW !!! Likewise IPCC predictions scheduled for 2050 – 2100 are happening right now. Look at the Prof Peter Wadhams vid in my prev post ie page 2. Heres a link …. IPCC predictions are dangerously slow.

The point of this blog and the time I expend is that I believe my reading of the available material ‘my viewpoint’ is the right one and I use my words to counter what I think is misinformation. For instance ice melt at the Poles, the links and vids prove that rivers running where it should be all silent and frozen and glaciers melting at alarming rates are the evidence for our own eyes, not some blinkered denial from ppl that perhaps cannot even read a book. In other words are of very limited ability in processing and assimilating information. If a person hasn’t got the hunger to have books then I seriously doubt they are qualified to argue with me. Its commonplace to go to a house and theres not a book in sight, no papers, no pens, no note-taking, no retention of anything, perhaps no thoughts of any value. I just could not live in such a barren and passive environment!

 

Postscript 17th May 2018. Regarding media manipulation. Maybe half a dozen times to different people I’ve pointed upwards to the sky not really getting anywhere and today it was a revelation.

“Oh you don’t believe in that mind control” ….

Uh??

“Of course not but what I am saying is that those straight lines that haze and merge are not conventional aircraft trails, they’re full of aluminium and organic growers are having problems with it, its also why California burned the way it did.”

(Remember …. Monsantos GM patents include aluminium resistance).

So who the heck is talking abt mind control? As with the first two people I mentioned this to and avid Fox News fans, as I did determine from that encounter there is concious effort to broadcast material that ridicules the ‘look at the chemtrail activists’. That indeed is nasty and explains why its so difficult to get ppl to look up and take notice. Thats why its so difficult, they have been set against any such enquiry by it being framed in the media as a crackpot notion. Framed to automatically be seen as a nutcase enthusiasm. You see, theres no tv in this house so how wld I know their prior knowledge is so affected, so conditioned to ridicule my concern?
