2021-01-18 Grasslands – Source Or Sink

Nature article (.PDF) abstract quote:

<< Here, we show that the net global climate warming caused by managed grassland cancels the net climate cooling from carbon sinks in sparsely grazed and natural grasslands. In the face of future climate change and increased demand for livestock products, these findings highlight the need to use sustainable management to preserve and enhance soil carbon storage in grasslands and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from managed grasslands. >>

2021-01-17 Earth’s Future Outlook Is Worse Than…

The chart from Bloomberg NEF predicts that by 2050 the world will still have 24% of global electricity produced by fossil fuels. We must switch to more renewables sooner or there will be no future.

2021-01-16 Operation Occupy The Capitol Misled!

It’s a shame. Read the quote from Abraham Lincoln. We have thousands of people who have been misled by a president who puts himself above the Constitution, which he swore he would uphold.

<< Dennis Edmonds [said]

***** ****** Why do you suppose that judges at every level (and often judges Trump appointed including the SCOTUS) ruled against Trump’s lawyers and lawsuits? It was because his lawyers NEVER presented to the courts a coherent argument of election fraud. While they were constantly bombarding the PUBLIC with claims of election fraud, they specifically told the COURTS when asked that they were not claiming fraud. And their evidence, on initial inspection by the courts was so flimsy that the courts wouldn’t consider it. Most of it consisted of those famous affidavits we heard so much about, in which Trump supporters, after being deluged with claims of vote fraud for months (even before the election) predictably signed statements claiming fraud. But, just like Trump’s lawyers, they too had absolutely no proof. Look, to believe these claims, you would have to believe that all the Republican Governors of swing states, all the Republican Secretaries of State of swing states, all the Republican election directors of swing states, all the Governors of swing states, all the Republican Secretaries of State of swing states, all the Republican election directors of swing states, all the Republican and Democratic poll workers of swing states, all those who recounted the votes in swing states, all the state court judges (many of whom trump appointed), all of the district court judges (many of whom trump appointed), and all the SCOTUS judges (3 of whom trump appointed) are all lying to you and are in on some plot to keep Trump from serving a second term. And not one of those thousands of people leaked a single word of this massive conspiracy. And you would have to believe that a man who has shown dishonesty for 40+ years in cheating on all his wives, in paying off porn stars to keep them quiet, in stiffing contractors, in lying on his taxes, in telling about 30,000 documented lies–out of all those people he is the one telling you the truth.

If that is your position, neither I nor anyone else without a professional license can help you. >>

2021-01-16 Covid Relief

Some comic relief 😂😆😆😂

•Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks. The other half will come out with a drinking problem.

•l used to spin that toilet paper like I was on Wheel of Fortune. Now I turn it like I’m cracking a safe.

I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.

Still haven’t decided where to go for Easter —– The Living Room or The Bedroom

•PSA: every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit. Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.

•Homeschooling is going well. 2 students suspended for fighting and 1 teacher fired for drinking on the job.

I don’t think anyone expected that when we changed the clocks we’d go from Standard Time to the Twilight Zone

•This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog.. we laughed a lot.

So, after this quarantine…..will the producers of My 600 Pound Life just find me or do I find them?

Quarantine Day 5: Went to this restaurant called THE KITCHEN. You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have no clue how this place is still in business.

•My body has absorbed so much soap and disinfectant lately that when I pee it cleans the toilet.

•Day 5 of Homeschooling: One of these little monsters called in a bomb threat.

I’m so excited — it’s time to take out the garbage.

What should I wear?

I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to Puerto Backyarda. I’m getting tired of Los Livingroom.

Classified Ad: Single man with toilet paper seeks woman with hand sanitizer for good clean fun.

Day 6 of Homeschooling: My child just said “I hope I don’t have the same teacher next year”…. I’m offended.

2021-01-14 Trump Vs. The Truth: The Only Way Is Thru Lies

It’s like Trump has a genie in a Talisman that he rubs and out comes the genie and in Trump’s memory the genie replaces reality (the truth) with what Trump fantasizes. The reality is totally gone.

As was stated in the video below, we are not anti-Trump; we are for the truth. When Trump stops lying and starts telling only the truth, then he can come back from the Dark Side and join the rest of the US. For the time remaining we shun him and turn our backs to him and walk away. We have no use for anyone who attempts to brainwash us with lies. We would expect the same treatment be given to anyone else including President Elect Biden. As of January 20 after inauguration we will expect the same of the new president.

Trump said, “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.” He accused the Democrats and Pelosi of causing a witch hunt. This is just like the guilty kid who tells his parents it was his brother who did the bad thing. He uses inflammatory phrases like “take back our country”. What the hell does he think this country is? The country hasn’t been taken away to begin with! See this urban dictionary definition

More than 30 votes in favor with 10 Republicans voting in favor of impeachment. The news is saying that the Senate may act on the article on the day before or day of inauguration – Jan. 19 or 20.

2021-01-13 Big Changes Needed, Fast

My FB reply

Karl Thidemann
I asked you a question. The regenerative grazing you promote will benefit the land in the same way that hundreds of millions of bison did before they were nearly exterminated by hunters.

How long will it take to regenerate the land? Regenerating the land will be pointless if it takes too long. The article of this original post says the following:
Quote << “Our main point is that once you realise the scale and imminence of the problem, it becomes clear that we need much more than individual actions like using less plastic, eating less meat, or flying less. Our point is that we need big systematic changes and fast,” Professor Daniel Blumstein from the University of California Los Angeles, who helped write the paper, told the Guardian. >>

I believe your agenda is not in the best interests of the world and would take too long to make the “big systematic changes” that they say are necessary. Reforestation on a large scale is still needed for, as you said, land where a forest will grow.

Regenerative grazing is going to benefit the land. But what else will it benefit? There is still the ruminant belching methane issue.

[Added Jan 13] You treat the regenerative grazing as the answer to all of the climate change problems. Until you show you have more than this, others are going to assume your sole agenda is promoting the raising of cattle. You should do more and better.

I listened to one podcast that said methane had a shorter lifetime in the atmosphere. But CO2 is also removed from the atmosphere by the oceans and as you’ve pointed out, by the soil and its biome(?).

But you still haven’t told us any timeline. The quote I gave explicitly said that mitigation must be done on a large scale and quickly. If it took decades to deplete the soil, how long will it take to restore it?

The longer that climate change goes on, the more the world will have to adapt and the costs will be much, much greater. Sometimes I feel that it’s futile and there is a very bleak future. What a shame because I’ll be dead and the world will be going to hell because there are so many deniers and charlatans who have ruined the future of humanity for short term profits.
