Quite a hard hitting article, lots going on re ice loss, ecosystem collapse.
Yikes, ultra creepy temp increase … anything that says by 2100 Greenland Ice Massif will be gone … more like 2026 I’d say. This end of 2026 point in time is when i would think we are somewhere at a minimum of 3 to 4C global warming, you can wave goodbye to anything like a piddling 2C prediction … quite laughable sticking to 2C considering the interconnectedness of natures climate systems and feedback loops. If I’m not correct then I will donate £1k GBP to charities, no quibble. Remember, the accelerating nature of ice melt is working against us, any child knows wake up next morning and it can often be an exasperating sight to see all the ice and snow mostly gone overnight as often happens here in northern England. Realise too that with increased ice-melt the freshwater adds to increasing humidity and rainfall. Therefore no albedo effect ie the reflective nature of a white landscape is lost and ad infinitum heat absorbancy spirals way beyond most publicly available predictions. Permafrost becomes mush, methane tumbles upwards from microbial, geological and thawing hydrate; better sort some space for all the oxygen cylinders we will need.
And then what ?
Heres a pic of what its like up there in NWT … https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/mackenzie-valley-winter-road-closed-1.5064202
Postscript; thinking of ice loss, not even the term logarithmic in relationship to volume decay is applicable when the temperature is rapidly increasing as in the North West Territories cited above, any ‘steady state’ conformity to plotting arithmetic curves or laws of decay goes out the window or into the newly formed lake. Again, thinking of childhood observation of a quick thaw here in temperate England, all the melt seemed to merely sink into the earth itself which in a permafrost situation up north is the last thing we need. So therefore in my mind most ‘predictions’ are invalid, unreal because thawing ice behaves in its own unique way. Its back to what I fear by 2026.
At least i’m doing ‘something’ even if its quite by chance or the new circumstances of my wife passing away three years ago which has enabled me to do things differently, ie much reduced mileage in the car as I’m happier being nearer to home (I’m the ideal profile for an electric vehicle) … washing machine bust and won’t be replaced, plastic bucket and a clothes line do all i want as theres no real dirt or grime to remove. Keeping the computer switched off most hours also helps in several ways, use books more, increase pleasure in sketching, copying, taking notes, memorise things … we don’t always need to be up on the latest news online, theres much human knowledge that is as good now as it was forty or a hundred years ago. I’ve no tv through choice and this suits me, bbc r3 and 4 provide sufficient, no mobile either and I’ve uninstalled the wireless remote heating thermostat. The only modern luxury I wish to retain is my central heating system and the pleasure of a hot bath !
Spinning and tumbling clothes dry here in England can be severely cut back and perhaps eliminated in many households, the washing line does all these things; particularly as these last few years we seldom have the rainfall here in NE England that we used to have.
How sad to see the present state of the Mueller report ie Tuesday 26th March 2019.
trump most certainly in his outward at least low brow fashion most definitely will insist all thinking upon the matter is now closed. To shut down any intellectual or plain basic common sense enquiry to the trump mind is now dead and finished. How sad.
What prompted me to write this post is this bizarre piece from the bbc …. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47698811
Wow, some sort of collective lobotomy must certainly have occurred in the bbc news room to issue such biased unthinking nonsense. I will say in bbc defence their evening radio programme ‘The World Tonight’ 10pm r4 generally has more bite to it, closer to some critical thinking.
To inject some ‘thinking’ into this post, to help join up the many crappy little dots called the trump Administration and all the dirty connections lets read a critique to the situation so far ….. https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/2663585/posts/2219372963
We also read this morning that a billion dollars is going via a military conduit for the needless wall under completely needless and mis-applied Emergency Powers. Theres already sufficient wall in all the places that matter, ‘the wall’ to trump is merely a hellbent dogma spewed at rallies to whip the crowd up and give ’em something to think about meantime. Remember his backdrop of rally attendees are handpicked for the camera, the man in the hard hat etc all stereotypes and recently once he had shouted ‘bullshit’ to the crowd he triggered a pre-arranged chant of ‘USA USA USA’ etc. Its all a con, all fakery, something he excells in, stage managed like a tv reality show, one must admit possibly the most qualified in the country to do so.
trumps wall is totally needless, merely an exercise in human misery (and impending climate change which he will not openly admit) ….. to aid protect the excessively wealthy when everything ‘goes wrong’ for the ordinary person. When trump says he’s going to get ‘the mexicans’ to pay for the wall he really means the taxpayer. This is plain and simple trumps flip-flop reversal in so many instances. He calls the media fake when he himself is exercising fakery on a Grand Scale!
Now that Muellers Report is proving a watered down version of what most people had hoped for trump feels vindicated and emboldened for further new levels of craziness, incompetence and affront to decency and good sense. To push the unspoken agenda of his bigotted cohorts themselves mostly pickled in excessive wealth and utterly remote from ordinary peoples aspirations, hopes and fears.
Lets do some more ‘thinking’ …. this man Robert Reich can aid evaluation of how nasty and hopeless trump really is. He’ll say anything to win praise, to gain support at that instant. Maybe hopeless isn’t the right word, more like ‘say anything at the time to protect his position’…. I had a mother like that and maybe thats why i hate such underhand deceit.
trump cares nothing for the ordinary person, for education, medical assistance or basic priveliges or rights for the ordinary general population. All are signs of totalitarianism / Fascism. His vacuous and quite useless promises re coal are hopelessly out of date, of bringing back jobs again hopelessly out of date and his denigration of for instance China quite obscene considering how much profit the West makes from importing goods from China. trump will bankrupt America much as he has done with his own inherited wealth. trump will say anything for a five second soundbite.
Funny how this echoes with the ‘just before’ finale / vote and as with James Comey some unheard of pillock comes along and drops an absolute bombshell, which again, has resulted in a disastrous outcome.
There is business to be done, uncertainty, this endless debate is reaching a brick wall, at this stage with Europe there is still the major part of negotiation to be entered. I’d rather in some airy fairy glowing goodly fantasy world filled with fairies and glow-worms and kindly elves be a separate country … BUT … EU membership brings advantages ie trade, employment. You can wave goodbye to any significant UK motor manufacturing, to financial services, to God knows what else. We’ve become Romania in one fell swoop ie marginal, struggling, trying hard to sell anything we make.
Surely as in both cases we need as little turbulence as is possible in the last day or two before crucial votes, already all the arguments have been ‘done to death’ and now individuals need to search their consciences and think hard (I hope) on the right way forward. A Geoffrey Cox we do not need.
Aha … not in this case. As in the Comey bombshell we have some utterly unwanted unforseen misjudged interjection that does nothing but muddy and de-rail cogent thought.
I think a 4% swing did not justify Brexit in the first place and most certainly the likes of Nigel Farage (even though his easy arguments were so convincing) needs to be signalled his presence has caused nothing but harm, he needs to crawl away and make himself unseen permanently. Easy arguaments are ‘easy’ but we have to earn our way in this world, the likes of Nissan Sunderland seem unlikely to follow us into the margins beyond Europe. These are huge enterprises of manufacture and distribution, you cannot play with them as ‘toys’.
I can’t believe … he’s two years younger than i am …. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffrey_Cox_(British_politician)
postscript … Corbyn looks particularly bad in all this, his months of obstructive silences and non-cooperation and then point-scoring eruptions to harp and criticise have not helped, adds nothing constructive, merely delays. This current problem is bigger than he realises and bringing back the old Labour disruptive practices is sorely out of date. Makes one wonder if he’d rather be in Russia. As bbc r4 interviewees this morning commented his performance last night at the big vote have been ‘pure politics’. I feel so sorry for Theresa May.
I also think the 4% swing is insufficient to have instigated this dreadful situation, we are cutting our own throats, I cannot see how overseas motor manufacturers would ever think of Britain again as an investment opportunity, unless of course our currency were to seriously devalue, which in fact it probably will. The UK public were given insufficient data to work on, I mean not endless soundites but greater depth and ‘what-ifs’. Its funny how people attach themselves to ‘a camp’ a viewpoint and fight tooth and nail to defend that position. Fluidity of thinking seems not to be readily available. Maybe its how we are presented our news, how people / viewers attach themselves to particular news outlets or tv channels. We are not as clever as we think we are.
Asking as we did the UK public to make such a vote was incredibly naive by the politicians, we didn’t really know what we were voting for which i think renders the Brexit decision fundamentally (with hindsight) INVALID.
Sunday today, chemtrails started here NE England 0900 GMT, I’d rate so far as looking to be a DQA 833 day; MP-F (medium barometric pressure) and falling; AS3. (ie altered sky 3). Middle hours of the day lots of cloud cover, probably induced from the earlier chemtrails. For my DQA reporting system search prev posts. Some good convincing photographs to follow. When you’ve been brought up on the resistor colour code and radio operator RST all this is second nature. All reports are from a max of 10, God help us if we ever hit the max ….
Lets look at NASA worldview … data collected 13:30 GMT …
I want to post another screenshot of up here in NE England but the resolution is abysmal …. perhaps ‘they are on to me’ ? I’ll try agn later but certainly today Sunday morning chemtrails are plain and clear up above. So far DQA i would say 833; AS; MP-F.
North Africa / western Med is getting chemtrails today …. https://go.nasa.gov/2STH0H8
15:00 GMT worldview update …. the little cnts are flying up from Spain (whoops a Derek and Clive moment) … as is their method tagging along a weather system, sufficient brains to ‘blend in’. Sorry, I mean Contractors and Third Party Beneficiaries. Its called money, it opens doors, lubricates efficacy, is a near universal motivator particularly among men.
… expand the image, its all blurred but sufficient is provided to realise / confirm this is man-made. As stated many times before, I need something better than worldview is providing.
Active up to date bloggers are rare, much material is old, of previous years. So, its unusual or more correctly not many people blog currently. Its my opinion we are being monitored, of course we are, the web is the all BIG thing. Therefore to avoid a few areas in England – those of the active bloggers – and there is a significant reduction of online kickback to the crap in the skies. This brings in to focus the last few photographs taken today, i have refrained from photographing a previous ‘cross’ in the sky as a pointless giveaway but this afternoon at sunset it was most impressive, as if devised for some poor sap to photograph and upload. My IP alone will be sufficient for the authorities to obtain my location … is everyone aware google street view also registers IP addesses along the pics of your house ?
Note also a small amount of what I term ‘aluminisation’ as at RH second from bottom, ditto to the left. It is the aluminized sky that annoys me, presses me to observe and try to get a handle on what is happening; we are being denied bright blue days. At this point all I can say is chemtrail spraying most likely is to increase reflectivity, that in 2019 we will see lots more of it and the aluminium levels are destroying bees (alzheimers), possibly insects and most likely caddisfly in rivers and streams. I also wonder of earthworms and diatoms.
The Esquire article holds worthwhile links to get a grip on climate change, it would benefit donald j trump enormously to get a handle on this ….
With warming oceans you can forget abt the marine food chain, lower strata and indispensable diatoms, algae, plankton hardly get mentioned yet are crucial. Its my opinion its diatom collapse that we’ve lost coral reef, its a symbiotic relationship and have yet to find one article stating this case. Its burning the oil and gas remains of diatoms that has led us to this predicament, ironic in the extreme. A few months ago i posted a ‘make a model of planet Earth’ whereby the usable space ie a mile total on this planet is represented by a one thousandths of an inch cigarette paper moistened onto the surface of a kids eight inch diameter football. Scale one thou inch equals one mile. A lot of the ice is melting from below, as when kids, we are so suprised next day its gone. As Sam Carana tells us its when grain production fails that we will really be in a predicament. Its as if everything we have, nature etc is merely a scummy film ready to be wiped off.
trump is a dickhead of an extreme and dangerous kind, seems theres a word to express his wish to incubate, spread and render viable the worst of ignorance for the common masses i mean those people he cares not one jot for other than poll and voting numbers … the spread of ignorance agnotology.
postscript : here a link from the above Esquire article, near total absence of insects and butterflies from Puerto Rican forest as visited by scientific professionals ie 98% of ground dwelling insects are gone … https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jan/15/insect-collapse-we-are-destroying-our-life-support-systems
This is a good vid, straight into the nitty gritty … the stupidity of trump, the urgency of climate change, the arrogance and blind refusal of the GOP to accept climate change being real and the problem is here right now … notice Noam Chomsky tells us of the obscene roll-back of USA Emmisions Laws … they admit they don’t care and it ‘doesn’t matter’ ….. the bar is set so low now that people are limboing in the mud itself.
