Global Skywatch

reminder day

Today the politicians remind us who is in charge of our lives. We scurry around tediously readjusting our time-pieces and spend a week adjusting our circadian rhythms because we allow the lowest common denominator to make our laws.

plantain

Since I strongly dislike uninformative teaser headlines, I put the topic right up there. I am impressed that this hearty “weed” grows well in our somewhat harsh Montana environment, particularly in abused driveway ‘soil’ and similar tough ecosystems. I’m promising myself to begin learning more about the healthy harvesting that lies unused right before my eyes … and under my feet. I can begin making such promises now that I am ALMOST caught up with the rush I have been in developing our current homestead to a basic operational level.   This common driveway weed is also one of the most powerful natural medicines 07/13/2016 / By usafeaturesmedia (Homesteading.news) It’s known to pop up as a persistent weed in gardens, on […]

Anthropogenic climate change

In regular English that is “man-made global warming”. Either way, it is a scam to corral the common folk while the elites burn jet fuel, yacht fuel and power for their multiple mansions at prodigious rates. It turns out that man-made climate change is indeed very real. Colorado State University publishes the geo-stationary satellite video clips that give us the show in real time. I created this little video clip to share with you how to read the satellite images, and how their engineered movement of equatorial air to the poles alters the natural balance of things… not to mention how their deliberate off-shore movement of moist air AWAY from California creates the devastating drought and related fires in that […]

GOES 17 – understanding the satellite’s viewpoint

This view of the Earth is so informative that I keep it programmed in Firefox as my Home Page. Unless I’m rushing off somewhere specific, I get this image of our area from a cosmic perch every time I fire up my Internet browser. In my video below I go over some of the finer points of what can be learned by looking down at our segment of Earth from The Heavens. Obviously we can see moisture and major storm activity, but thoughtful study reveals so much more. For decades they denied this activity. Recently the geoengineers discontinued their denials and began bragging about it. What they admit to or brag about has little impact on those who choose to […]

dam + ladder

Beagle Brain, aka: Scooter, our Beagle/Lab cross, the BLAB, inherited the beagle willingness to follow her nose wherever it leads, whenever she can. Our containment fence was not up to the task. She would challenge it. I would fix it. Rinse and Repeat. FINALLY I shut her exit down while the rented backhoe was available with a dam and its backwater flooding where the fence crossed the creek. Yay! Success! BUT The tiny dam I rebuild every spring to enable my irrigation to draw from what little bit the upstream irrigators leave in Bunkhouse Creek posed no barrier to the little trout living in the year-round stream. My Scooter dam and culvert, however, did make a barrier… One I was […]

autumnal equinox

I have written and published on this topic before. It is good to remember our connections with Mother Earth, our solar system and the cosmos. I know your calendar calls it something else, as if it is a meaningless Hallmark holiday, but mankind has paid attention to these things throughout our history. They are significant in the real world. So I repost most of what I put up last year at this time. It is not a Hallmark Holiday or made-up event. In cultures past, who paid attention to natural rhythms, the autumn equinox was a big deal. Today, day and night are of equal length. Harvest festivals and putting produce up for the winter are major parts of this […]

Carnivorous Plants

I was a fill-in presenter today at the local garden club meeting, doing a show and tell about the green carnivores I share my space with. One of the gardening ladies suggested there was a certain justice were they to take a chunk out of us after all the plant eating we have done. The one on the right is a Nepenthes ampullaria x hamata that somehow thrives in the imperfect conditions I provide. Mostly north east glass in a laundry room that had always attracted most flies who made it into our house. We really didn’t have many this year. Perhaps that is why this plant is thriving in sub-optimal conditions. The flies disappeared into the pitchers rather […]

the battle against putting mercury in our mouths

This is some insight into the effort environmental and health activists both agree on. Putting mercury into our mouths and environment is one disservice the dental industry should STOP providing. For reasons that defy rational explanation, the American Dental Association has been fighting to not only continue this in the face of strong evidence against the practice, but to silence critics as well. Their days of owning the conversation and poisoning us are running out. – Ted –   Visit the Mercola Video Library Story at-a-glance During this Mercury-Free Dentistry Week, we highlight those who stand firm against amalgam: the mercury-free dentists of the world. We salute these pioneers for challenging the dental industry’s abhorrent policy of dumping mercury […]

dirty green

I’ll keep pointing out that modern tree huggers are blind in one eye and cross-eyed in the other. They feel so good about being green, but are participating in destruction far worse than the dirty firewood burners. They love to think of their transporters as “zero pollution vehicles”, but the reality is merely pollution elsewhere vehicles. They are guilty of incomplete or non-existent thinking. – Ted   Clean energy dream fuels a dirty mineral rush Published time: 8 Aug, 2019 06:03 Edited time: 9 Aug, 2019 08:35 Get short URL Open-pit copper and cobalt mine at Tenke Fungurume in Congo’s copper-producing south, January 29, 2013 ©  Reuters / Jonny Hogg   A future of environment-friendly energy, where dirty engines and […]

understanding geostationary satellite images

I have been a weather watcher since I began working outdoors a lot about 35 years ago. It was also around then I studied meteorology in college. Nowadays we have much better tools readily accessable to anybody. We also have geoengineers working the weather over on a massive, global scale. One of my favorite tools is geostationary satellite GOES 17. Geostationary means it stays in a fixed position relative to our planet. I check this daily. It is, in fact, my home page. Learn to read it and The Weather Underground regional infrared satellite image and you can predict your weather more accurately than the computer models that do not allow for geoengineering. I produced the following videos to help […]

summer solstice today

I am keen on the solstices and equanoxes as an anchor to nature and our natural world. I have published a number of articles describing them, but for the summer solstice of 2019 I will share someone else’s. Credit to Popular Mechanics website … a very informative one I often visit. – Ted   Everything You Need to Know About the Summer Solstice And while we’re at it, the winter solstice and equinoxes, too. By Daisy Hernandez Jun 18, 2019   jessicaphotoGetty Images You hear the word solstice all the time. We have the summer solstice coming up on June 21 at 11:54 a.m., and in a few months, the winter solstice (December 21) will be here, too. But what […]

looking up … and not liking it

After six or eight passes over Big Sky Country’s beautiful, clear, blue sky this morning, I decided to do a bit of recording. It seemed likely we were going to take a beating from the United States Air Force today. Shure nuff… as you can clearly see here. I start off with two of the culprits. Notice the distance from the modern high bypass turbofan jet engines that produce no vapor trail and the chemtrail nozzles that produce the trail we all can see. In the twin-engine plane there is huge space from engines to tail-fin-mounted nozzles. In the four-engine tanker the nozzles are mounted on the main wings, much closer to the engines. It does seem a better disguise. […]

flood, flood, flood … food will be a problem

On Thursday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned that “historic, widespread flooding” would “continue through May”. I see they have been reading The Bitterroot Bugle. I said the same thing on March 1st and in more detail on March 10th with my essay flood warning. The talking heads masquerading as meteorologists are SHOCKED, surprised and so-on by this devastation. Are they stupid or complicit? I doubt they are stupid. I look at the geo-stationary-satellite images seeing quite clearly the manipulation causing the historic weather disasters. Their training and available tool-sets probably exceed mine. They can’t not see it. Unfortunately, they also cannot talk about it and retain their jobs… which they obviously like more than their integrity. If you […]

Spring Equinox

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 is the spring equinox. Do something special to celebrate. Mark that day in some memorable fashion. Your wall calendars and media will call today “first day of spring” or some other trivializing phrase, as if it is a meaningless Hallmark holiday. Do not confuse it with other fabricated events on your pre-printed calendar. Mankind has paid attention to solstices and equinoxes throughout our history. The days have been getting longer since the winter solstice, and will continue growing until the summer solstice June 21st. Wednesday is exactly half-way in between. It defines the shift from snow-cold-snow-cold to robins, flowers, butterflies and shedding jackets during the day. Pessimists say The Bitterroot has three seasons: snow, flood and […]
