Over time, sea levels rose and Doggerland became increasingly submerged, eventually becoming cut off from land on both sides and forming an island. Around 6000 BC a devastating tsunami tore down through the North Sea and across the island of Doggerland, wiping out its population. The story of Doggerland tells us of our history as Europeans and also of our beginnings as an island race. After the submergence of Doggerland the residents in Britain became cut off from the European mainland and began to develop independently. The spread of agriculture, from the Fertile Crescent through Europe, stopped at the Channel and our island mentality began to form.


The Romans of course came and went, having subdued The Druids but nevertheless imbued the MINDSIGHT of Britain with so much of that which we take for granted these days • BUT the Normans came and NEVER LEFT.
 
Having eventually been prevented from crossing the Thames to the South East of London following their victory at the Battle of Hastings and being forced to march Westwards until they could cross the river at Wallingford, William and his army then proceeded Eastwards, before then approaching London from the North, whilst along the way replacing all of the Anglo Saxon Barons with their own Norman Elitist versions of same, in compensation for their efforts in defeating the English.
 
Thus began the process of turning London into a fortress based on the Tower from which CONTROL of ALL the PEOPLES of ALL THE ISLANDS would be eventually established, by way of a legion of Castles modelled on the Tower of London. IS THERE ANY WONDER NOW THEN that THE PEOPLES outside the M25 are seeking to somehow redress this situation, by getting rid of the EU's system of MIND CONTROL and thence bringing pressure to bare on the Parliamentary Voting System to serve THE process of DEMOCRACY  for, by and of ALL the PEOPLES of ALL THE ISLANDS, that lie off the North Western coastline of Eurasia. Interestingly so however, nearly 100 scientists and support staff depart this week for the most ambitious mission to date for Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica.

   The NERC [IS] the U.K.'s main agency for funding

   and managing research, training and knowledge

   exchange in the environmental sciences. Their

   work covers the full range of atmospheric, Earth,

   biological, terrestrial and aquatic science, from the

   deep oceans to the upper atmosphere and from the

   poles to the equator. They coordinate some of the

   world's most exciting research projects, tackling

   major issues such as climate change, environmental

   influences on human health, the genetic make-up

   of life on Earth, and much more. NERC is part of

   U.K. Research and Innovation, a non-departmental

   public body funded by a grant-in-aid from the U.K.

   government. Find out more at nerc.ukri.org.


    

   Arctic Ice Loss Is Not as Scary as the Giant  

   Stirring in the South so WHAT ABOUT at      

   the other icy end of the planet?

Ice shelf holding back keystone Antarctic glacier within years of failure. Breakup of the Thwaites eastern shelf will ramp up sea level rise.

An alarming crackup has begun at the foot of Antarctica’s vulnerable Thwaites Glacier, whose meltwater is already responsible for about 4% of global sea level rise. An ice sheet the size of Florida, Thwaites ends its slide into the ocean as a floating ledge of ice 45 kilometers wide. But now, this ice shelf, riven by newly detected fissures on its surface and underside, is likely to break apart in the next 5 years or so, scientists reported today at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union.

Arctic sea ice extent has declined significantly in all months since satellite measurements began in 1979, with Septembers showing the largest declines. The last 15 Septembers show the lowest values.


Yet just one month after Cop26 ended in Glasgow, the warning that the 300-metre thick, 50-mile wide Thwaites glacier has started to crack up has been met with silence from governments preoccupied by Covid-19 and the return of normal politics. The danger is that the many actions pledged in November to address global heating will be shelved for another year, to become just one more risk in an increasingly dangerous world. Thwaites underlines that global heating and glaciers do not wait for politicians, and every year action to reduce climate emissions is delayed only accelerates global disaster.
