There was worldwide outcry when the Notre Dame cathedral was on fire. Why is there not the same level of outrage for the fires destroying the #AmazonRainforest?

My question for you: How to motivate yourself to continue with confidence and serenity?


When looking through the stream activity on diaspora I come across some delighting posts about cats, some jokes, nice countryside pictures, wisdom and what ever else makes me enjoying a post. However, what hits mostly my attention are all the bad news shared here.

I grew up in Germany and do have good memories of living with people and remember many beautiful landscapes. Now I am living in Taiwan. Most of the news about Germany I receive via Diaspora. Not being in Germany and reading about what is going on there, I get the feeling that it becomes a no go area. Is it really as bad in Germany? Is there really no chance to change the course towards a different way of living together?
Is it true that the 'American way' is manifesting in Germany more and more? Are prepper, #afd and the like going to dominate the way of live in Germany or are those groups only highlighted in the media as a means of leading people's thinking towards more obedience to and refuge into the hardening rules of the state.

Are there ways to get more positive, inspiring or strengthening posts into one's stream? Can you recommend some tags or something I forgot to think about?

The above was triggered by this post. A post full of arrogance and hate for LGBTQ, African-American, Hispanic, Muslim ...

It seems that there is a massive salmon die due to too warm temperatures. Possibly a consequence of #climatechange.

Es scheint so als gäbe es ein massives Lachs sterben aufgrund der zu warmen Temperaturen. Möglicherweise eine Folge des #Klimawandels.

"A U.S. scientist claims he was forced to quit his job as an analyst at the State Department after the White House blocked his report into climate change and its effect on national security. Writing for The New York Times, Dr. Rod Schoonover explained why he quit his role as an intelligence analyst for the federal government. He wrote that the White House blocked the submission of his office’s written testimony on the national-security implications of climate change because it did not 'comport with the administration’s position on climate change'. He said he was allowed to give a short verbal summary of his work at a House committee hearing, but 'Congress was deprived of the full analysis, including the scientific baseline from which it was drawn'. Schoonover wrote: 'The White House trampled not only on the scientific integrity of the assessment but on the analytic independence of an arm of the intelligence community'."

"The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, and after the hottest June ever recorded on Earth, the region is literally on fire."

"From Greenland to Siberia to Alaska, huge swathes of flame and smoke are wrapping themselves around the upper Northern Hemisphere of our planet, like a suffocating scarf."

Iceland to lay a plaque marking it's first glacier to be lost to climate change.
The first of Iceland’s 400 glaciers to be lost to the climate crisis will be remembered with a memorial plaque – and a sombre warning for the future – to be unveiled by scientists and local people next month.

The former Okjökull glacier, which a century ago covered 15 sq km (5.8 sq miles) of mountainside in western Iceland and measured 50 metres thick, has shrunk to barely 1 sq km of ice less than 15 metres deep and lost its status as a glacier.

Researchers from Rice University in Houston, Texas, a leading Icelandic author, Andri Snær Magnason, and the geologist Oddur Sigurðsson will lead the unveiling ceremony at the site in Borgarfjörður on 18 August, local media said.

“In the next 200 years, all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path,” the plaque reads, in Icelandic and English. “This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.”

The memorial is dated August 2019 and also carries the words “415ppm CO2”, referring to the record-breaking level of 415 parts per million of carbon dioxide recorded in the atmosphere in May this year.

1 in 5 #Cities Is About to Have a #Climate Unknown to Any Place on Earth

Scientists from the #CrowtherLab at #ETHZurich have for the first time visualised how these climate shifts will play out on a global scale, looking at how conditions in 520 major cities around the world are predicted to change in just three decades.

"By using optimistic #ClimateChange scenario, we represent conservative changes in conditions ..."

Lebensraum statt Parkplätze: Verordnung der Bloch-Bauer-Promenade als Fußgängerzone

Bild/Foto
Eine Straße, die Teil deines Lebensraums ist. Das war die Idee für die Bloch-Bauer-Promenade im Herzen des Sonnwendviertel-Ost. Derzeit wird anstatt einer Fußgängerzone eine Wohnstraße geplant und damit auch der Autoverkehr in Schrittgeschwindigkeit ermöglicht. Es soll zwar vorerst keine Parkplätze geben, doch der Bezirk hält sich die Möglichkeit offen, diese bei “Bedarf” nachträglich “unkompliziert” einzurichten.

#ClimateChange: Why is it so often “sooner than predicted”?

A June 15th headline elicited feelings in me of both shock and déjà vu: “#Climate #change: #Arctic #g permafrost now melting at levels not expected until 2090” [Independent, June 15, 2019]. Shock because that’s quite a bit ahead of time. Déjà vu because how often does a climate change headline or story use a phrase like that? “At levels not expected until” ...
