Those clever bbc r4 people.

Greta Thunberg was Guest Editor this morning on the bbc r4 ‘Today’ programme.

Does everyone know this? I was very impressed, I only caught the last half hour but is available to listen again and download over on the bbc radio website. Only drawback is that these days we have to perform the dreaded ‘log-in’; this I shall in this instance do. At one time it was merely click and play; everyone every organisation wants their stats.  ‘The Cloud’ I read is running at 4% of annual electricity consumption and of course is set to rise!

I’m v impressed with Greta, she is erudite in English, has a v good brain and implores everyone note EVERYONE to read the science. We would hope a certain donald trump and his crooked coterie would likewise read the science but of course we know of his unshakable inability to read, inability to accept experts and inability to learn.

Science we know can be achingingly slow at coming back from the ‘front line’, we now have to stay on the up-curve, work hard to be near the crest of real-time feedbacks and data. Science too is full of vested interest, funding sensitivities, viewpoints and stances of all forms of regard and hue.

I wish Greta the greatest good luck and good health in maintaining ‘the message’. She is much too valuable to go back into a schoolroom, it would horrifying for me to see her having to plod along at dated quite needless material when her real task is elsewhere ie the whole world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na1aHtv0OKI

For a ‘no punches pulled’  instructional overview on climate change and what we need do, the best I can think of is anything from Prof Kevin Anderson, full of intelligent  content; it is a no waffle, pure condensed informative and knowledgeable overview. He speaks with the directness and brevity of a top class experienced engineer.

 

My own ethos is, in my own immediate little world:-

  • no more long drives out into the countryside, I walk and ramble much closer to home.
  • make clothes last, wear them out.
  • cook quick meals, seldom any longwinded oven cooking (and for me certainly no  baking).
  • I wash everything by hand, wring dry and use a bamboo pole across the kitchen ceiling and/ or my washing line outside. No tumbler, no spinner.
  • get rid of the SUV…. and something that particularly irritates me, forget about letting the diesel idle pointlessly in the supermarket car park!
  • forget about airflights.
  • pester the Council, some carriageways are far too overlit at night.
  • eat less red meat; move away from ready-bought ‘burger culture’ its a con !
  • I actually prefer a £15 Melissa bench-top oven, the main oven hasn’t been used in twenty years.
  • slim down web posts, keep it brief, therefore reduces charging and ‘cloud’.

 

 

Utterly fascinating …

… good questions pitched to a most fascinating subject.

Only very occasionally do we meet someone as erudite, wide ranging, knowledgable and spirited and excited by his work as Prof. Kevin Anderson.

 

 

At 05:13 above for instance in the above (is an EXCELLENT guide to our impending problems and remember recorded at 2013) we have to reduce our energy consumption  … please tell that to my idiot neighbour with often front door access light illuminated and generally always his rear security light blazing away … merely to illuminate his shit-hole useless non contributory patch of three times bulldozed ‘yard’ to use the American term. Strong language prompted by severe stupidity.

Climate Change links …

I started this blog half a year ago to bring together pithy to the point links and worthwhile material to try and save time for others. It sort of works as I hoped, visitor numbers are woefully low but if nothing else its been an education for myself and a valuable repository.  I bring you only quality material … ie science / pro contributors. Hint: click these film channels to see more.

 

 

 

Above at 05:20 note that the top ten percent on the planet produce 50% of the CO2 emissions. People knock China for instance (and India) but aren’t we lucky the bicycle was their mode of transport for the ordinary, the masses. And to see an Indian train with hundreds cling to the exterior must surely be max utilisation of motive power.

 

The IPCC looks to be rubbish.

I’ve just found a website of a weather forecasting ‘professional’ where are told that ‘the IPCC model looks right now to be the best we have’ …. Good God what utter wilful blindness to the truth.

Theres BS and dangerous BS and this falls into the latter category. IPCC models and forecasts are wilfully incorrect, hopeless and at best at least some sort of rallying point or focus BUT still are hopelessy inaccurate and certainly misleading.

A pocket foldaway answer  …

  • The IPCC does not account for the methane that will hit soon from geological, frozen hydrate and microbial; 20-120 times more potent than CO2.
  • The IPCC incorporates vast carbon capture that as yet does not even exist or has been invented and is illustrated to ramp continually in its effectiveness!
  • The IPCC does not realise CO2 conversion by ocean plankton and terrestial green plants and trees is falling, in decline.
  • The IPCC does not factor in that ecosystems are already collapsing, plankton upwards. That the Pacific is dying.

Lets get a plain speaking man Prof Kevin Anderson that deals in facts  … action starts at 11:00

 

And he gets to talk to Amy Goodman …. I am so jealous !!

Note the problem of insufficient weight being given to climate change ranging from   self censorship by scientists, the sort of diluted washed out statement that started this post by a so-called meterologist to outright denial by ill-educated and twisted old men of the present Washington so-called Admistration ie trump, scott pruitt and the castrated EPA.

 

Lets think of chemtrails and how mass media is engineered to minimise any population taking notice ie …

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?
