Climate Change-Yellow Vest-Diesel Fuel Revolution: Will the French Revolution Spread to the United States or Worse for the Controllers the resource rich Least Developed Countries? How will this effect population control efforts? For example NSSM 200?

I wonder if any geopolitical or climate models predicted this?

Wood products Made In Las Vegas from local Mesquite

I collected about 8,000 pounds of mesquite that fell down in the Green Valley Corporate Circle parking lot. It was going to end up in the landfill Apex or maybe they have green compost power recycling but doubt it. 

We could plant mesquite instead of pv solar panels. Turn into DME biofuels and plant them next to highways and roads. 

They get too much water and roots don’t grow down. The tree can spread fast and walk during wet conditions..


Check out this amazing saw mill! Every municipality should have one or more… 100 yards of trees should surround all highways. They would filter the air and then people wouldn’t live next to highways. Road dust is #1 pollutant. The trees would capture the co2 and turn it into oxygen. The 

Wind Energy Declining: Wind not Modeled Well

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.

The study revealed a widespread decline in wind energy resources over the Northern Hemisphere. Using station observation data, the researchers found that approximately 30%, 50% and 80% of the stations lost over 30% of the wind power potential since 1979 in North America, Europe, and Asia, respectively.The study also revealed that global climate models (GCM) cannot replicate long-term changes on wind energy, indicating wind energy projections based on GCM simulations should be used with careful consideration to the model performance.”Our study is one of the first comprehensive assessments of the GCM-based winds against surface observations over multiple continents. We found that the decline of wind energy is a widespread and potential global phenomenon. In addition, the finding that the climate models have a notable deficiency in simulating wind energy is an important conclusion that needs further attention,” said TIAN, the lead author of the paper.

Peterson Swing Blade SawMills and Stay in New Zealand at and

Designed to cut the log horizontally and vertically, the single thin kerf blade of a Peterson swingblade circular sawmill pivots from the horizontal position to the vertical position with ease. Each cut of the log intersects at a precise point resulting in perfect boards every time as is the joy of swingblade sawmills.Peterson Portable Sawmills use a unique process where a power head drives a tungsten-tipped circular blade through a log, which then rotates 90 degrees to achieve both horizontal and vertical cuts, in order to free a perfectly dimensioned piece of timber from the log. A rise and fall mechanism is mounted within a carriage which is pushed and pulled upon parallel tracks over a stationary log.The first cutTo start a log, the blade unit is positioned at the top left of the log, with the blade in a horizontal position. The operator gently pushes the mill frame through the log to affect the first cut. Carriage movement through the log requires about 10 lbs. pressure as you are letting the blade do most of the work. A simple hand movement swings and locks the cutting unit into a vertical position, which is then pulled back down the log. Due to the originality of the design, no special locking mechanisms are required, making the whole process quick and simple – many of our customers comment on how easy it is to use in comparison to other brands!The return cutThe operator now pulls the unit back through the log in the vertical position to complete a cut. Your dimensional board is now free for removal, and fully edged! Once a row of cuts across the log face has been completed, the entire unit is lowered to the desired depth of the next cut. This is done using a simple hand or electric winch, and takes about 5-10 seconds.These steps are repeated until you have only a thin firewood slab remaining at the bottom of the log – you have no need to move the log at any time during the whole sawing process. The concept is extremely inventive, but surprisingly simple. One of its many strengths is the Peterson’s ability to handle a wide variety of cuts. Running a single blade instead of two at once also means you do not need a huge motor, which reduces both overall costs and weight.Step by stepThe cutting begins at the top of the log with the blade in the horizontal position, where small waste pieces are removed to expose the first useable layer of the log. N.B. The horizontal cut is always done pushing forward, and the vertical cut is always done pulling backward.Once the top of the log has been levelled you can now lower the center unit with two winches (ATS), one winch (WPF), or an electric winch (WPF and ASM).Once you have reached your desired depth of cut, you can remove the waste edge from the left of the log by cutting forward horizontally to the far end of the log, and then pivoting the blade into the vertical position and pulling backwards. Remove the waste piece of timber.You can now cut your first board. With the blade in the horizontal position, move the horizontal sizing slide to the desired width of board. Then unlock the center unit, and wind it to the right. The center unit will not go any further once it has reached the width marker.You can now push the blade through the log until you have safely cleared the end of the log.You then pivot the blade into the vertical position using a lightweight handle, and pull the mill unit back towards you to free your board.The process continues, as the log is milled one layer at a time, until nothing but waste at the bottom remains.The result: plenty of valuable timber with very little waste.

By Craig BlakeFor those of us who have seen or operated bandmills, chain saw mills, or conventional circle mills, the cutting concepts for a swing mill operation may seem strange, but they are certainly interesting – and they work! Historically, the process of reducing a log into boards with most sawmills involves some sort of cut that goes through the log entirely, and the log is turned repeatedly to perform this operation until it has been reduced to the desired finished product. This often involves reloading some unfinished live-edge pieces, called flitches, for edging, or utilizing a second piece of equipment designed for this task. Some of these systems are very elaborate, with added options to remove a lot of the manual operations from the labor-intensive task.How It WorksSwingmills dismantle a log in a way that is similar to multiblade “dimensional” sawmills. Originally designed for use in countries where average-sized sawlogs would require gigantic sawmills, the swingmill simplifies both the sawing and transportation challenges. Most swingmills can be transported in the back of a truck or a small trailer, and are small and light enough to be hand-transported nearly anywhere, be that deep in the woodlot or into a fenced-in backyard next to the swimming pool.The mill can even be set up around the log, eliminating the need to move the log at all. Swingmills take apart logs one piece at a time, and don’t require a through cut. The log is cut in place, and is not moved or rolled throughout the process. Every piece taken off is either waste or a finished board, and conventional swingblade sawing does not require reloading pieces for edging.The blade cuts both horizontally and vertically, and these horizontal and vertical cuts intersect at a precise point. To begin, the log is positioned in the mill (or the mill is positioned around the log) to be parallel with the track or frame system that carries the blade and associated hardware that do the cutting. If possible, the log is usually placed on some simple wooden skids with square-edged notches to permit the sawmill to cut the entire log, as the blade cannot cut down to ground level. Large logs that cannot be placed on skids and are cut on the ground are wedged in place for stability.The cutting begins at the top of the log, where slab pieces are removed to expose the first layer of product. Once the top of the log is flattened, the process is repeated by first lowering the blade the desired amount and cutting off the waste edge. After the edge is removed, the blade is moved over the desired width of the board, up to the cutting limit of the blade. The cutting process is repeated, and the finished board removed. Thus the process continues as the log is taken apart, one layer at a time, one piece at a time, until nothing but the waste of the bottom slab remains.About That Bottom Slab . .Swingmills have a stigma that they are only suited for large logs. This is just not the case. Although there is an option to purchase log-dogging systems from a variety of sources, most manufacturers do provide them but only as an accessory. Gravity does a really good job of holding even the small logs in place, but the operator has to be reasonable about the amount of cut made, and the speed at which that cut is made, when cutting small logs or even the last bit of large logs. Finishing the log is the matter that troubles most people who are new or unfamiliar with a swingmill. They just can’t get over the concept that gravity alone can hold the remainder of the log in place well enough to get accurate boards without the material moving or sagging.Remember, it is typical for the log to be supported only at two points. At this point, the square-edged notches become the most important thing holding the remainder of the log in place. As long as the log has solid, attached bark on the outside to engage the square-edged notches, and precautions are taken to slow down in the cut (as the remaining material is now lighter), sawing out the last few boards down to the wooden skids is quite routine. If the log has no bark, is slippery due to water or ice, or when sawing small logs on a routine basis, a dogging system for the skids becomes helpful. Another stability tip when finishing the log helps with the tendency for the last bit of the log to sag between its supporting points. With this technique, the sawyer leaves the edging material (that is normally removed) on the last cut for every layer. This process begins after the midpoint of the log is reached, toward the bottom of the log in the last remaining inches. By leaving this material attached, it forms a support that will keep the last boards from becoming inaccurate due to the material sagging in the middle.What Size Material Can You Cut?Most manufacturers designate their models at least partially by the cutting capacity in a single pass of cutting. Cutting depths of 6 inches, 8 inches, and 10 inches are common. This designation means that the 8-inch mill, for example, is limited to materials in one complete pass that are 8 inches x 8 inches or smaller. Larger materials are possible by a technique called “double cutting.” This allows the blade, while in the horizontal position, to be utilized to cut an additional width of blade capacity. Therefore the largest material that an 8-inch mill can cut is really an 8 inch x 16 inch beam or variants smaller. The process for double cutting varies by the mill manufacturer; some involve the removal of a simple blade guard, while others require turning the mill around on the tracks.What about Grade Sawing?Conventional theory says that you must be able to turn the log or resulting cant to cut material from the best face and eliminate defects. When sawing for grade with a swingmill, the same conventions apply for placing the log with sweep and placing defects at an angle when choosing an opening face. The distinct advantage to grade sawing with a swingblade is that the operator can decide what size board to cut next at any given time. This maximizes the quality of the material by cutting around a defect as it shows itself in the material, and creates the best boards possible out of the scenario presented. Of course, such skills are certainly acquired through years of practice and an understanding of grading rules.Want to Make Large Slabs?Most swingmill manufacturers offer an optional slabbing attachment. Using the blade-mounting arbor as a drive, these attachments use a long chain saw and chain to slice slabs from logs, often up to 60 inches in width or more. Similar in operation to the conventional “Alaskan”-style chain-saw-powered mill, these options boast improved accuracy over the chain-saw-based slabbing mills due to the accuracy in the framework of the sawmill. Cutting speeds, however, can be slower than a chain-sawbased slabbing mill, as the swingmill is designed primarily for use with a blade, and geared as such. The rpm that the blade spins is slower than the conventional chain saw, therefore the reduced cutting speeds. This option is utilized by many swingmill owners to get tremendous monetary returns from their oversized logs, as these large slabs often fetch premium prices. By using a process called resawing, one large slab per log can be recovered with a swingmill IF you have the capability of removing the log that has been started in the mill, and placing it back in the mill on the top of another log…cut side down. Using this process, the log is sawn conventionally down to a desired thickness of a slab.A last point is that a swingmill’s simplicity, especially in the manual models, leads to very low maintenance and operating costs. Sharpening the carbide-tipped blades is accomplished in a few minutes on the mill. Blades with traditional bits and shanks are available. Periodic maintenance of the engine and gearbox, and general lubrication on the manual models, is the extent of the requirement. Some items, such as the roller wheels that ride on traditional aluminum tracks, are consumable. They are expected to wear out and be replaced periodically after hundreds of hours of operation. Parts such as this are few and relatively inexpensive.The versatility and sheer portability of the swingblade sawmill has created a great interest in the sawmill world and the world of sawmill hopefuls in the last few years. As evidenced by the number of manufacturers now selling literally worldwide, and the introduction of larger automated versions, the swingmill concept is gaining recognition and has established itself as a legitimate segment in the sawmill marketplace.

Helmet Landsberg

Helmut Erich Landsberg (1906–1985) was a noted and influential climatologist. He was born in Frankfurt, Germany, February 9, 1906 and died December 6, 1985 in Geneva, Switzerland while attending a meeting of the World Meteorological Organization. Landsberg was an important figure in meteorology and atmospheric science in education, public service and administration. He authored several notable works, particularly in the field of particulate matter and its influence on air pollution and human health. He is the first to write in English about the use of statistical analysis in the field of climatology and implemented such statistical analysis in aiding military operations during World War II. He received a number of significant honors during his life. Several honors are now bestowed in his name in recognition of his contributions to his field.

Landsberg was skeptical of the risks of man-made global warming, arguing that computer models were unreliable and that the impacts of projected warming would be minor.[

One of the most notable detractors of the period was Helmut Landsberg, a much older world- renowned climatologist employed with the University of Maryland Institute for Fluid Dynamics and Applied Mathematics in College Park, MD. Frustrated with what appeared to be an activist spirit motivating socially-aware scientists like Schneider, Landsberg believed that scientists who studied the climate should stay out of the spotlight given what he considered to be a myriad of scientific uncertainties about the causes of climatic change. Concerned about the credibility of climatology as a professional discipline given his own role in its maturation since the 1940s, Landsberg cast considerable doubt on the validity of relying on computer-based models to inform policy makers and the general public. Unless one could adequately quantify the scientific uncertainties that underlay scientific claims based on models, he believed that reticence was the only appropriate course of action until such uncertainties could be identified and resolved. Staying behind closed doors, cautiously hedging one’s claims by quantifying and emphasizing scientific uncertainty, and diligently collecting and analyzing data to resolve such uncertainties were hallmark characteristics of what he envisioned to be a professional atmospheric scientist.

Combs from Around the World    Found: A Viking Comb That Says ‘Comb’

“[C]ombs found in archaeological excavations are artistically superior to, and at least as effective as, the ones we use today,” wrote Mumcuoglu and Zias.

Some medieval combs depicting Biblical scenes had a “liturgical function,” meaning they were swiped around the heads of bishops, priests, and kings prior to their ceremonial duties.

Jewelry in the Americas has an ancient history. The earliest known examples of jewelry North American are four bone earrings founded at the Mead Site, near Fairbanks, Alaska that date back 12,000 years.[3] Beginning as far back as 8800 BCE, Paleo-Indians in the American Southwest drilled and shaped multicolored stones and shells into beads and pendants.[4] Olivella shell beads, dating from 6000 BCE, were found in Nevada; bone, antler, and possibly marine shell beads from 7000 BCE were found in Russell Cave in Alabama; copper jewelry was traded from Lake Superior beginning in 3000 BCE; and stone beads were carved in Poverty Point in Louisiana in 1500 BCE

Figuring Random Climate Forcings

Imagine a glacier floating towards a strait. If it turns one way it’ll pass through. If it turns another way it will get stuck. This blocks ice and lets the colder water pass. This ice free body of water absorbs light 1/16th the maximum estimated CO2 effect which is 1 w/m2. 

Imagine 20,000 leagues below the sea a cave which lets water pass through gets clogged with a whale.  This changes the tragejectoy of the ocean currents which are poorly understood and have an error bar forcing?
