Nature links …

A worthwhile browse, some good news mixed with the less good and the catastrophic.

I generally introduce a source or link therby building a library of links, I seldom repeat a source and I hope others can scroll down over my posts and see what is latest.

 

For instance my idea …. make a model of planet Earth, an eight inch football and our usable space is the thickness of a cigarette papet ie one thousandths of an inch ( 0.001in ).

Watch the ice …

Succinct and direct vid and also illustrates the flow outwards of ice into the North Atlantic. I wld have liked more written text but I assume format precludes, its an intentional brief hit of info.

Note also that its thickness that matters, from above we can still see some of the whiter older ice but at what thickness? Likewise Grenland, likewise everywhere. Here 7th Dec NE England its far too warm this morning, car thermometer tells me 10deg C.

climate change links …

My hope is that anyone stumbling upon this blog of mine will realise its my intention readers click back to older posts to find an unfolding list of useful material and associated serious and valuable websites, I generally only post repeated sources such as news sites hoping otherwise ppl will realise to ‘drill down’ to get the good stuff.

So here I am contradicting myself and posting material that I cannot allow to drift away unread …

Heres an overview of their latest material … https://e360.yale.edu/digest

Thats lots to be reading and a little of something else just found re Arctic warming  …  https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/12481054/posts/2079388346     …. theres some good embeds from Prof Peter Wadhams, I have his book here ‘A Farewell to Ice’.

It is sad beyond words that most of us in the West are now able to lead a pleasant moderately civilised and comfortable life and to see it all taken away by Natures intolerance of human activity. Perhaps that displays how I regard my position in the social or class structure of this country, that I assume automatically that my forbears led lives of hard work, long hours and the niggling fear of what might be around the corner, what might happen next. But maybe I am running to false conclusions, perhaps they were able to gain some happiness or satisfaction contrary to their aching limbs, subservience to an employer and multiple deaths at every stage of life from childbirth onwards?  My arguament would be that it is only in the last few decades where emancipation, workers rights, better housing, personal mobility, education and better conditions at work and access to healthcare have appeared on the scene. Yes, it is only recently we are better off speaking as a working class person.

Scouting for climate info …

trump and his nastiness diverts us from pursuing a more usual constructive life and chemtrails I reckon are probably to be absent until spring and the warming of the sun, at least here in the UK. So now at backend 2018 we can look at climate change info ….

look at micro-granules of plastic and the blood/ brain barrier … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/apr/24/record-levels-of-plastic-discovered-in-arctic-sea-ice

countries acting now … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/climate-consensus-97-per-cent/2018/oct/24/some-of-the-countries-leading-on-climate-change-might-surprise-you

sixty percent gone  … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/video/2018/oct/30/wwf-report-warns-annihilation-of-wildlife-threatens-civilisation-video

ditto … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/oct/27/world-on-track-to-lose-two-thirds-of-wild-animals-by-2020-major-report-warns

It would take a full page A4 of close-typed headings to even bring together the basics of enquiry / search terms for the layman.

mainstream denial of Pacific die-off … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDno5_ARLbY

 

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

From experience I know that successive days or sessions on youtube yield better, more detailed or less populist material on any form of search, this was obvious about eight years ago one Christmas where I focused on Italian Neo-Realist cinema of the 1950’s. It took three evenings before I was offered the full-length ‘Umberto D’.

Heres some hints to look out for and many are covered/ linked here in previous posts …

  • bee and insect decline
  • arctic ice loss
  • antarctic melting from beneath
  • increasing sliding speed of glaciers
  • diatom and plankton loss and the importance of this
  • dead rivers
  • loss of caddis fly
  • fish stock decline (everywhere)
  • alzheimers in bees
  • west coast USA river entire ecosystem decline
  • Pacific seabird collapse (starvation) and its under-reporting
  • Fukushima
  • aluminium from chemtrails
  • California wildfires and chemtrail aluminium accumulation
  • autism increase (aluminium)
  • deforestation
  • needing to decrease beef consumption
  • population growth
  • too great a dependance on digital and the web and how we think
  • web manipulation, manipulating opinion
  • trumps madness and denial, the EPA tragedy
  • trumps lies and graduated decline into authoritarianism, American Fascism
  • the inadequecy of the IPCC reporting
  • methane in its three forms, frozen hydrate, microbial, geological (ice capped)
  • green plant transpiration reversal at increased CO2
  • the love affair with the SUV and carbon based personal transport
  • human arrogance and conceit
  • electric vehicles not being the answer they seem
  • chemtrail deployment, resultant ‘haze’ and impact on organic growers
  • Monsanto patents and aluminium resistance
  • jet stream alteration and split resulting in warm wet air over the Arctic
  • etc etc

 

 

It was done by arrogance, by dogma, by ignorance …

I remember this from years ago, never more relevant. I’m thinking particularly of the abhorrent resurgence of Fascism and trump.

I quote “When people believe they have absolute knowledge and no test in reality” unquote

 

The above is at the end of his acclaimed tv series ‘The Ascent of Man’. I’ve watched this clip many times today, within his words is something, a great deal more.

Same day here in the UK we hear Robert Winston on bbc r4 at teatime on the ‘pm probramme’ reminding us to be careful of our words, that in his personal outlook of being Jewish its a basic tenent to use words wisely, carefully. He specifically was talking in regard to trump and his trashy inciteful talk.

So thats where the 12 years came from ….

I gained a chance conversation Sunday and the expression ’12 years’ was mentioned, I assumed she meant something like Sam Caranas prediction in that …  we have a decade left before annihilation, but in fact tootling on the web its a quote from the whacky, so very retro outdated … like … asshole useless IPCC bods.

Twelve years to act as in the quote ….

“there are just 12 years left to act to keep global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius.”

To act … that is too late, treacherously too late.

This is so off target … like … silly beyond belief. As posted previously Prof Peter Wadhams must be sickened whilst amazed and laughing and cringing that such out of sync IPCC thinking is promoted as ‘current’.  Dear God, Sam Carana would suggest its a decade max before serious human depletion on this planet, this little ball eight inches in diameter and with a fag paper covering ie 0.001 inch a thousandths of an inch is to live breath, fuck and fantasise.

Anyone who knows me realises I’m cheesed off tonight. Reasons don’t matter but what does matter is how many ppl are ‘not up to speed’. To anyone new to this I suggest googling ‘East Siberian Ice Shelf’… this is the biggie. Better add ‘jet stream modification’ ‘loss of oceanic lower food chain’ … ‘loss of Greenland ice mass’ … hell the list needs its own page of A4.

So lets link to some other material gleaned online in the last hour, before I settle down to read …  like  … (not an e-book) one of my paper based books (of more than 2k) contained here within my chambers.

uh-oh, tiscali my ISP is messing abt, useless as usual. It often loses the server lately three times each morning and these last few weeks destroys my emails by notifying me as undeliverable via unwanted unneeded … spamhaus … to block my online activity. Be aware, spamhaus is quite nasty and often quite needless. Also, tiscali email say four years ago became un-usable so no bloody wonder its virtually abandoned by all and sundry; ailing, unusable, f’kcd… therefore I’m using a third party email provider which annoyingly is being thwarted. Who what is spamhaus and quite why they take it to be their business to disrupt my simple tiny quite clean activities ??

Oh well, back to reality …
