My Take on efin' Reality

Since my freshman year at Ohio State University in 1963 to today, I 've
been living in either extreme poverty or just plain poverty! lol And today,
I'm not alone! 143,000,000 of us are either existing below the official b.s.
federal poverty line or
the rest of us are
paycheck-to-paycheck. The history
behind this has been cleverly kept almost impossible to figure out - for me, a
lifetime almost, lol. Connecting the events of what really has brought America
to her present insanity is efing, mind-boggling. I and others are very possibly
decedents of white settler, colonial, criminal, racists.

I and others must live knowing that We the Poor are among the
millions of
poor who compose in part several color-based, economic-class-based and
urban vrs. city groupings: First off, t
he original Indigenous Peoples whose
pristine lands were stolen by white European settlers. Once, over 15,000,000
people freely moved to anywhere and everywhere in America. Today, there are
over 300,000,000 of us, mostly in large cities. A merciless genocide led.
The
First People's nations and tribes were encountered, hunted down and murdered.
The "Discovery Doctrine
" was used to "legally" steal the land of anyone found
 not to be of land-owner, white Christian ancestry or citizen of other colonizer
countries. Internment camps were hastily created, followed-up by forced marches
to tracts of land re-named "reservations",
(then undesirable for white settlement).
Greed, expanding empire and racism has culminated into today's sprawl of malls,
highways, clear-cut wildlands, mountain-top removals, pipelines,
poverty and despair,
over-crowded,
private prisons, etc. A few U.S. Indigenous reservation lands house
gambling casinos or lease oil, water and minerals rights, (virtually never given-up
willingly) to violent, machine-like corporations - as some sort of "reparations" that
supposedly pays for the millions of children and people killed or displaced.

America is divided between the vast majority who are poor, made so by the
intentional greed of the rich at the expense of everyone else, either making us
poor if we are not willing to be "better-off", by working us at odious tech jobs
or working us so that we would have to violate our common sense: to not
pollute water, food and air. Or we might be made to accept unreasonable risks
in dangerous manufacturing or construction projects. You name it, and many,
if not all elites are not putting People over profits - just the reverse!

Cities are either suffering crumbling infrastructures, or morphing into super-fund
sites, or sacrifice zones of low wealth survivors. All Americans live without
"Single-payer Medicare for All".
Rural Americans do not have access to doctors or
near-by
hospitals or health clinics. Like the Palestinians, if you are not rich (or not
willing to do their bidding), we, no matter what country, are all learning what it's
like to live without freedom from violent oppression by a 1% "ethnic rich" ruling
class. Multi-national corporate malevolence has forced us poor into survival mode.

War-like corporatists have
forced mass migration and regional displacements through
mass destruction of infra-structure, economic sanctions and generalized aggression.
Ecological destruction has led to longterm systemic
famines, causing genocide. First
People's lands were
seized at gunpoint or worse everywhere, on every continent, but
Antarctica! We're next on "their" agenda.

W
e, me, or maybe you, may be included in the approximately seventy million
disabled Americans, the elderly and millions of children barely existing. There
are over two million incarcerated people in America: fathers, mothers,
family
members and orphaned
children remain in crowded, inhumane conditions. Many
 inmates suffer from untreated mental and other medically needed conditions in the
under-staffed, for-profit internment-like camps due to often questionable sentences
brought about by inadequate defense council. Poverty is slavery, especially as in
for-profit privatized, state prisons. Many communities of Color and of Poor Whites
are
"red-lined" and over-policed, putting the residents in a constant state of stressed
existence, not knowing from day-to-day and from paycheck-to-paycheck, whether to
somehow
flee or stand their ground and fight back! Not ever knowing the loving, peaceful
feeling of real joy and restful relaxation! We poor must learn to self-organize with others.

Ancestors of many of the current
ruling classes were "plantations" owners - written into
history as so-called
colonists - some whose heirs would be today's "banksters". And some
of these scoundrels are revered as patriots then and today.
Crooks who banked some MAJOR
wealth from their unchallenged cruelty and forced labor-camp slave holdings. Imagine: stolen,
robbed, chained and murdered like many indigenous African People - many children.
Captured.
 Hunted-down. Brutalized. Branded and sold as if they were cattle, "labor" commodities. Slave
auctions brought immense accumulated
wealth that grew over the years and decades. Blood
money that paid for tall buildings, ships and railroads and
flows still, gaining immense accrued
interest through many U.S. and trans-national banks. Corporate coffers will someday soon, be
confiscated and returned to the rightful owners, just as happened for the victims of the Nazis,
whose similar crimes against the Jews and the Romas is well documented. It's time for another
war-crimes and crimes against humanity trial as happened during the Nuremberg Trials
.

Yet, slavery still lives today as private prison labor, low wage, non-union jobs, non-union
sweatshops, child sex
trafficking and immoral child abduction by I.C.E. from their immigrant
parents. If most Americans are not direct decedents of these first American colonist settlers,
then we're the decedents of immigrants, stolen and brutalized African, Asian, South American
Indigenous Peoples and others - or perhaps decedents of the First Nation Indigenous Peoples.
Irregardless, today with few exceptions, most of us who are poor, are so because of a rigged
system, that stems directly from these original criminal minds that came mostly from Europe.

Many of the "plantation" owner elites, have successfully passed on their wealth and corporate
corruption schemes from coast to coast and north to south, up to the present day.


Where did all these damn police come from? Not out of thin air. Law enforcement, normally
would be at village and city level, hired by, hired from, and paid for by the citizens, collectively.
Taxes done ethically and morally right for all equally is the way that works. Security forces for
the ridiculously wealthy slave owners were originally
privately-hired militias, formed from the
desperately poor of the day. These individuals were chosen for their hunting and combat abilities.
They took
orders directly from their paymasters, the plantation slaveholder class. This system of
"human hunters" who
willingly hunted down runaway slaves, for their bosses, the "slaveholder"
elites, worked in tandem and with impunity
. And this would go on  through the years, to involve
other enforcement duties that has grown gruesomely out of hand.


Today's militarized police has its roots in slavery - a cross between slave enforcement
and population control. We poor are kept in perpetual low wealth, with few exceptions
,
living in a
nightmare, paycheck-to-paycheck "consumer" trap. The trap forces us to
ruthlessly compete for an artificially constructed scarcity of available jobs. Most of
us (without credit) are
unable to pay for a sudden $400 cash emergency, like a co-pay
for a for-profit hospita
l or perhaps the need for another refrigerator or a car repair.

Antarctic Icecap Arctic Icecap

Update Here







The seasonal maximum extent of Arctic sea ice has passed, and with the passing of the vernal equinox, the sun has risen at the north pole. While there are plenty of cold days ahead, the long polar night is over. Arctic sea ice extent averaged for March 2021 was the ninth lowest in the satellite record. With little ice in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, harp seal pups are struggling. At month’s end, Antarctic sea ice extent was slightly above average.

Arctic sea ice extent averaged for March 2021 was 14.64 million square kilometers (5.65 million square miles). This was 350,000 square kilometers (135,000 square miles) above the record minimum set in 2017 and 790,000 square kilometers (305,000 square miles) below the 1981 to 2010 average. The average extent ranks ninth lowest in the satellite record, which began in 1979. Regionally, extent at the end of the month was below average on the Pacific side in the Bering sea and on the Atlantic side in the northern Barents Sea and well south of the Arctic in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Elsewhere, extent was close to the average, though generally somewhat lower. Ice loss during March was primarily in the Sea of Okhotsk, the southern edge of the Bering Sea, east of Svalbard, and in the northern part of the East Greenland Sea. The ice edge expanded in the southern part of the East Greenland Sea and to the north of Svalbard.

During March, sea ice extent tracked well below average, but as noted in our previous post, the seasonal maximum in extent, reached on March 21, one day after the vernal equinox, was only the seventh lowest in the passive microwave satellite record. Since ice extent in March increases through the first part of the month and then decreases thereafter, the daily average growth rate is not a very meaningful statistic.

Air temperatures at the 925 mb level (about 2,500 feet above sea level) in March were up to 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit) below average across northern Eurasia and extending east over Alaska. Temperatures were 1 to 3 degrees Celsius (2 to 5 degrees) Celsius above average over the Atlantic side of the Arctic, with a tongue of above-average temperatures extending into the Beaufort Sea (Figure 2b). The associated atmospheric circulation for March features low pressure over the northern North Atlantic, with the lowest pressure focused over the Barents Sea (Figure 2c). After remaining in a fairly persistent negative phase for much of the past winter, the Arctic Oscillation index in March was mostly positive, but with large fluctuations.

Through 2021, the linear rate of decline for March sea ice extent, relative to the 1981 to 2010 average extent, is 2.6 percent per decade, which corresponds to 39,700 square kilometers (15,300 square miles) per year, about the size of the US states of Maryland and Delaware combined or the country of Switzerland. The cumulative March ice loss over the 43-year satellite record is 1.67 million square kilometers (645,000 square miles), based on the difference in linear trend values in 2021 and 1979, which is equivalent in size to the state of Alaska.

This winter ice extent was far below average in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, which is an outlet for the US Great Lakes located northeast of New Brunswick. The unusually low sea ice extent is leading to the death of many harp seal pups. In December, harp seals arrive at the Gulf of St. Lawrence from the Canadian Arctic and Greenland, and then give birth to pups under snow on the ice cover.  With so little sea ice, many pups were forced to cluster on shore where they are vulnerable to predators, leading to high pup mortality. It is widely viewed that with continued warming and loss of sea ice, harp seal populations will decline.

Antarctic sea ice on the rise

After reaching its seasonal minimum extent on February 21, Antarctic sea ice extent climbed rapidly, passing the long-term average daily extent on March 1. The rate of growth was very rapid between February 25 and March 8, expanding by over one million square kilometers (386,000 square miles) in the 12-day period. This is the fastest expansion in the four-decade record of sea ice extent for this time of year, and was caused by a rapid refreezing of the western Amundsen Sea and eastern Ross Sea areas. Since early March, growth has slowed to a more typical, slightly below-average pace. The Amundsen and eastern Ross Seas remain well above the average extent for the season. Sea ice extent in the Bellingshausen Sea and Weddell Sea are slightly below average. At the end of the month, Antarctic ice extent neared 5.5 million square kilometers (2.1 million square miles).

May 18, 2021

Nine large fires have burned more than 18,000 acres in six states. New large fires were reported in Arizona, Florida, Massachusetts, and Minnesota. To date, 21,780 wildfires have burned 563,854 acres in the United States.

As seasons change, so do our practices to keep everyone safe outside, and to protect the places we play! In the spring and summer especially, the environment changes quickly and access points may be more limited. As the weather becomes warmer and wildland vegetation, or fuels, begin to dry out, it is time to plan for wildfires: recreateresponsibly.org/wildfire-resources #RecreateResponsibly

Weather
Strong winds aloft will overspread the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies as an upper-level trough slowly moves into the Pacific Northwest tomorrow. An associated cold front will push south and east through the Northern Rockies and northern California into the Great Basin and eastern Montana. While gusty winds are likely over portions of the inland Pacific Northwest, northern and western Great Basin, and the northern Plains into the western Great Lakes, relative humidity values should remain at non-critical values. Dry and breezy conditions are also expected to continue across portions of the Trans-Pecos. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are likely across the northern half of the Southwest through eastern Utah and much of Colorado. Precipitation will continue along and west of the Cascades, mostly in Washington with severe weather and heavy rain likely across portions of Texas.

Radiation Monitors:

The Nuclear Threat is VERY REAL!
  "Mineral Lab" produces this Background Radiation Map, in Prescott, AZ
 and shows
xx CPM (Counts Per Minute) at almost 5400 ft-asl (1646 m-asl). This is
(probably) from
a Geiger-counter with a 3/4" side-mounted detector screen
(light-lined circles)
.
Today, I read (not working xx CPM at 2800 ft-asl 853 m-asl). The lower the
elevation, the lower the gamma ray count from outer space! (Notice the low
counts at sea level!)
On the map, the heavy-lined circles are counts 2-3 times
more sensitive, like my
ONYZ NX-10 Geiger-counter with a 2" back-mounted
"pancake" detector.
Confusing? Corporately, damn straight! On purpose!
 
> > More about radiation here


"Santa Ana winds" are easterly winds in the Spring.
This means a bump in my downwind CPM count!
We'll watch and see! Nano-sized, radioactive,
metals
& other
nuke contaminants, are carried in the dust of
the desert floor region surrounding the
W.I.P.P.

radioactive "waste" depository region, nearby Carlsbad,
New Mexico, the source. W.I.P.P. had a major release
of
Plutonium-239
around the time of Valentine's Day,
2014. Successful detection of dangerous radioactivity
is from noticing CPM up ticks of normally benign natural
 background radiation. A bump in
Cesium-137
, sounds
the alarm! Radioactive Cs-137 is dangerous if ingested or
 inhaled. It is a short-lived radioactive nuke-fission waste
product
(lasting 300 yrs = 10 x 28 yr half-life) - a co-product
 with Pu-239 (
the deadliest poison known to humankind),
in the
fissioning
process of Uranium-235 (that produces
 incredible heat used to convert liquid water to steam)! So,
when my
Geiger CPMs double or triple in number, I know
that many dozens
of other nuke waste crap like Pu-239
IS THERE! W.I.P.P. is in southeastern NM, near TX.
