Chemtrail check list.

I’m only new to this however my technical training tells me never to jump to conclusions, do not assume and neither have I any idea what tv says about this as I do not posess such a thing, BUT …  the bright blue days of high pressure are near consistently ruined by unwanted trails in the sky that quickly form an all-over haze. It seems so very un-natural to me. Yet even so, many people refuse to engage brain on the subject and emphatically deny as if being administered their dose of castor oil. Maybe theres been media presentation on tv I am not aware of, after all, arguing with a Fox afficianado is a waste of time!

So, lets list what I see in the sky above, looking toward the local city  …

  • Aircraft trails where normally never seen as flightpaths.
  • Trails do not disappear as they would usually.
  • Trails ‘connect’ to produce overall haze, not natural looking cloud.
  • No longer a clear blue sky when in fact it is a high pressure day therefore promising no cloud at all.
  • Hazing within 10-20 minutes. Sometimes turbulence to what is visible, a fast moving ‘mess’, sometimes morphing most obviously every five minutes!
  • Note parallel tracks, sometimes circles, peculier bends and even 90 degree bends.
  • Sometimes a metallic sheen both in the sky and as reflected at ground level.

You can make up your own mind, its a free world or should be. Of course the Idiot at present in the White House is doing his best to set nation against nation, create anxiety, destroy trust and roll out his wrecking ball activity that is masked by a total upturning of common sense and decency. Mean, narrow, regressive.

None of the reasons given for this chemtrail or geo-engineering make sense or stack up and which in fact Governments do admit to such activity. Its is an absolute minefield in trying to obtain objective fact.  You can point to the sky yet some halfwit that has never observed such things in their lives will adamantly refute that anything is amiss!

Look at my previous posts, Scientists and Field Workers all report great disruption to what was considered as normal ie population crash of all flying insects, bee decline, free (unbonded) aluminium problems, astronomical rise in autism, ADHD etc etc  ….

 

Deeper tragedy …

I cried this morning with the news of Stephen Hawking gone. Thats another clever individual  …

And increasingly trump is shedding sanity, shedding checks and balances to dive down deeper into the pool of filth called his Administration. As we can see he full well believes climate change is here contrary to his simplistic utterances, hence his insistence on even more of the wall that already does exist, likewise massive tax handbacks to the already filthy rich, disowning the ordinary and the poor, shutting down immigration, turning inside-out what is credible authentic news and replacing with White House / Republican propaganda and lies, ramping up the military. To get the real measure of trump seek out all the roll-backs and destruction of hard-won legislation that safeguard environment and the rights of workers, of citizens; the installation of clowns and the unsuited to top positions. This reads like some apocalyptic American comic book.

The point of this post is one link only, a warning from the World Meteorological Organisation  … http://www.wired.co.uk/article/world-meteorological-organization-climate-report-2017

 

On the ball: Climate Change with Prof Kevin Anderson.

We need more like this man, Prof Kevin Anderson. He knows fine well his viewers are served well by his quick delivery, in the talk below he gets through lots of points because there are lots of points  … its called survival of the planet !!!

He’s certainly bright and like a breath of fresh air; a genuine hero among men.

I implore anyone and everyone to listen through completely the above presentation. He draws in the many factors all feeding into the dilemma of trying to lower carbon consumption when the dangers of hubris, of trump, of the slowness of governments and how the better off in this world are most reluctant to let go of present lifestyle. A good point he makes is realising how our affluent carbon lifestyle, air travel etc is destroying the chance of the poor accessing even a basic supply of electricity. So next time air travel is booked just think how the debit of carbon is hindering someone, a family on the other side of the world. I personally do not think the top consumers can shift their mentality, nor realise the urgency. Its an 80/20 rule and it fits. Likewise, IPCC forecasts and modelling are so ‘out of step’ with real-life data ie incorporating carbon capture when as yet the technology hasn’t been invented for the large scale required;  likewise with no IPCC mention of the expected methane ‘time bomb’. Their figures will be shredded to ‘so much confetti’.

Its going to be very difficult to get the World to accept new outlooks and targets, the Economists constant desire for growth in untenable with climate changing so fundamentally. Its a bit like my experience of ‘managers’ in industry, often its always too late.

We need a few hundred more people like Prof Kevin Anderson on this planet. Heres his blog …

For those that can stand a little more reading  …. heres a useful quote speaking with Amy Goodman ie http://www.resilience.org/stories/2017-11-27/scientists-issue-dire-warning-climate-change-key-researcher-urges-changes-live/

I quote: KEVIN ANDERSON: Well, if you think about it, the renewable industry itself requires lots of people working in it. But also, we have to retrofit the existing infrastructure that we have in our society. If you look at the U.S., it’s very high energy consumption. That needs to change rapidly. That means retrofitting buildings and properties, people’s houses. It means much greater electrification of the energy system than we see today. There’s just a huge amount of construction work, engineering work, design work. You know, this is about really a 30-year jobs program for all of the industrialized parts of the world to transition from the very high-carbon infrastructure we have now to the low-carbon infrastructure of tomorrow. So, in that sense, surely, if his commitment to the Dust Belt was really a sincere one and he had some innovative capacity, he would see that the climate change agenda is a jobs agenda for the people that voted for him. end of quote.

In other words we need to get ‘on the ball’ and be doing all of this NOW.

Its particulary frustrating as trump is so incapable of any of this, so adamant in his refusal to acknowledge what everyone else knows; that is a statement that sums him up doesn’t it so many ways!    Not even trumps usual derisory  … SAD… is sufficient to describe the direction he is heading (ie backwards)  more accurately CRIMINAL in his neglect and insistence on reacting as if uninformed yet always able to hear and implement the dinosaur oil and coal lobby! The boy that couldn’t read …..

And to contradict trump and his cronies … theres no such thing as clean coal.

From Kevin Anderson above I quote …  If … “he had some innovative capacity” unquote, that just about sums trump up, nothing good, nothing positive, nothing created as a step forward for humanity, just a bizarre yearning by a person with an extremely contrived hair make-over to be back in the 1930’s when society was rough and stratified, when greed and impulse were fed quite easily if pockets were deep enough and political ambition fed upon upset and yearning; for the ordinary God fearing person it was not an easy a time to live through and then we had ’39-45. The sad apology trump despises science, data and learning; doing his best to run down, shift or dismiss scientists of the EPA through the Grim Reaper aka Scott Pruitt. I’d describe trump with his refusal of scientific data and learned educated opinion, hatred of minorities and folk of other colour or religious persuasion as a strange repugnant mix of Mao, Hitler and a hundred other despots throughout history.

Be vary of trump wanting a war, he’s doing his best to set nations and beliefs against each other; then as Naomi Klein sagely points out all manner of restrictions and laws will appear that a short while ago would have seemed so unthinkable, so draconian.

page 4 – degrees of warming.

 

Two degrees in all reality in my opinion will soon appear as wishful thinking. The Arctic is already at 10-12 deg C warmer and the Antarctic is also melting faster than scientists thought possible, with massive as yet invisible undercutting by warming sea water into the ice massif itself.  But its not ‘how we feel’ as humans in a warmer environment it is the effect upon individual and cascading and interconnected feedback loops and weather systems and hard to believe they could be so sensitive! Each exacerbates the other. Already the jet stream is looping over and crossing the Arctic, also looping onto and below the Equator, this should not be happening! This all brings about a much changed situation and all for the worst, none of hundreds of points of consequence is a move for the better. We have lost sea ice, therefore turbulence increases, subsea permafrost releases increased methane and there are vast deposits that at the moment are relatively stationary of this most unwelcome visitor at 20-100 fold the potency of CO2 depending upon timescale.

It is shameful and sad that a distorted White House is heeding so easily the lobbying of the soon to be extinct coal and oil industries ie companies wanting to extract whatever profits remain to be made and contrary to the will and desire of the worlds population. The American Environmental Protection Agency, the EPA, with Scott Pruitt has been gutted and castrated, scientists dismissed or placed in menial or irrelevant job positions and no free exchange of information; the denial of the facts, of data. Even the term ‘climate change’ is banned. This is chaos and evil of the order of magnitude that would serve as storyline for a Marvel  comic; theres no limit to where trump will  get his claws into and wreck all good sense.

Last year ie 2017 dipped below the upwardly curving mean, so in all probability 2018 will see many horrible weather events.

All this will happen much quicker than most mainstream predictions want to forecast as ‘likely’. For instance what the IPCC forecasted as total loss of summer Arctic sea ice as 2080 is already here.

Here experts discuss the need and likelihood of getting down to a 2deg C limit  …. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOfWROvWestkWbBhZTk147w

James Lovelocks book ‘Gaia’ as mentioned in I think page two here on my climate-change-briefing.com blog is a most valuable primer for the layman. If you can read it and understand and memorise it then you will be able to take part in many and most discussions re climate change. He discovered the gas DMS the product of oceanic plankton and which influences planetary cloud formation; a man of breadth as well as depth. His biography is a most fascinating read, originally self taught, naturally talented; NASA have utilised him as an independant scientist. Here below he tells us that with the loss of Arctic sea ice the absorption rate will escalate and heat the worlds oceans as much or more than all or any CO2 emissions. Ice in a sense was our ally, it reflected sunlight.

It was only in November 2017  it struck me that climate change had raced ahead, I was out of touch and I needed to get up to speed.

To my mind climate change is now the ‘only game in town’, too vital and important for any of the other 2k plus books here to interest me very much.

These pages will be an easy to read and easily explored gateway to the terrible problems that are the climate change catastrophe that is unfolding in the second decade of the twenty first century.

So many youtubes and web posts that I explore are subject specific ie loss of arctic ice, weather modification, loss of Pacific coral, jet stream upheaval, arctic methane etc etc … so my quest here is to throw lots around and provide quick easily understood information. A big criticism I have is that so many youtubes can be so slow and ponderous, particularly those that are delivered ‘to an audience’ TED style….. I don’t have the ‘effin time to waste listening to some pillock self-agrandising for an hour …. if I cannot ‘get it’ in five or at most seven minutes then please learn brevity !!! Samantha Bee has the right idea – keep it brief. Theres so much to keep up with and yet we are expected to sit through an hour of really quite slow delivery. I hope in time text will accompany youtube so that I can read through quickly rather than hang around viewing it. I’ve spent a lifetime on self employed ‘price-work’ and so am used to getting the point over quickly.

The President of the USA circa early 2018 ie donald j trump astounds and embarrasses me as to his ignorance and wilful refusal to assimilate basic facts, criminal in his negligence, likewise his appointment of Scott Pruitt to head the EPA and general dismantling of all that is good. I have read that scientists are moved to demeaning payroll or admin duties, forbidden to use the term ‘climate change’ or just dismissed from service. Great God, how filthy and belligerent can a so-called Administration become???  They will all ‘meet their Maker’ and be held accountable.

We are in for some troubled times ahead. In my opinion trump knows fine well catastrophic climate change looks set to happen, hence huge tax hand-backs to the already sufficiently rich and gross expansion of the military. The wall is to keep out a people that will be clamouring for survival.

As huge as we think planet Earth seems, the usable layer of breathable air is I read somewhere years ago as if a layer of varnish on a football. We look up to the sky and it seems endless but in fact five miles high and we would not be able to breath. In other words in two hours of brisk walking we would be at the limit of survival. And accordingly, whatever pollutants or modifications we introduce (ie excessive CO2) the effects will be soon felt.

The Pacific Ocean looks to become (if not already) a huge expanse of ‘dead’ water (something seeming I’m finding not too easy to find out about) ie west coast USA is overwhelmed with dead and dying marine life, from mammals down to the tiniest microscopic plankton. Its a strange irony that for one hundred and twenty years we have utilised the oil and gas from microscopic diatoms to fuel our ‘modern’ convenient independant lifestyles and now it seems the diatoms have bitten us on the ass so to speak – withdrawing their oxygenating / CO2 conversion function. Its this loss of diatoms that is in my opinion why corals are devoid of their colourful inhabitants, the self builders of their naturally white coloured homes just no longer exist. ‘Bleaching’ is a term that annoys me, I think inappropriate – it jarrs with me, coral always was white, its just all that the living material has died off. Fukushima and its three ‘somewhere’ reactors I think are responsible for this, some youtubes will explain as ‘acidification’ …I refuse to accept this explanation.

First day here for this climate change blog … its 11th Feb 2018, a work in progress.

Heres a quick starter ……

 

Also look at  ….

Realise too that hidden from sight is the undercutting that is occuring below the waterline, there looks set to be some horribly spectacular breakages of very thick elevated ice platform ie the big stuff that will directly contribute to sea level rise from Antarctica.

Here below is Paul Beckwith, he posts frequently, its all data based hardcore fact and I make sure I keep uptodate with him. I made a donation too, three hours of my wage, I hope others too can help contribute.

Brief and to the point …climate change.

Thanks for joining me!

 

post

The above is a stock photo appearing as if by magic from WP and for now let it remain. Quite appropriate, my ancestors on both sides had many lifetimes associated with the sea, some were fishermen,  my mothers father a lifetime in the Royal Navy, some were harbour trades inc sailmaker for my mothers grandfather, my dad even drove a DUKW in the Second War.

The purpose of this blog is to bring attention to a wider medley of climate change topics, the best of what I can find  and hopefully save people some time at getting a foothold on the masses of sites and youtubes that exist. I also hope I can bend ‘deniers’ and ‘don’t knows’ to realise quite what is happening and seed enthusiasm for newbies to learn more.

I’ve found that google and particularly youtube enhances its results over successive days at searching, day two and three often yielding better material. I’ve known this for a decade with the many interests that I have, some quite unusual for a man in England, vintage Chinese cinema for example or fifties Italian Neo Realism etc etc   Hence the value of this effort at blogging here, to retain and mark the best both for myself and others.

But also as with the trump situation for the average person searching for page one and two google the newer churn can block out and make invisible material that still has value and really should be to hand. I think trump deliberately knows this effect, as if burying his mistakes with newer ones.

I’ve deliberately kept to a minute or two of reading and no more than say three vids (preferably shorter ones) or three or four  links per page. So much material out there particularly recorded talks and presentations seem so drawn out – I haven’t the time to sit and wait as it plays out! I hope in time the penny drops and brevity increases in value.

I’ve also deliberately kept away from listing huge loads of links or lots of diagrams and schematics, these are so easily viewed from other and immensely more able web contributors, for instance Paul Beckwith has lots of visual material to aid presentation and explain complexity.
