THIS is how we win, people.

Solar and Wind Power So Cheap They’re Outgrowing Subsidies

"For years, wind and solar power were derided as boondoggles. They were too expensive, the argument went, to build without government handouts."

"Today, renewable energy is so cheap that the handouts they once needed are disappearing."

"On sun-drenched fields across Spain and Italy, developers are building solar farms without subsidies or tax-breaks, betting they can profit without them. In China, the government plans to stop financially supporting new wind farms. And in the U.S., developers are signing shorter sales contracts, opting to depend on competitive markets for revenue once the agreements expire."

Greta Thunberg to US politicians: 'Sorry, you're not trying hard enough' | BBC News

"Don't invite us here to just tell us how inspiring we are without actually doing anything about it

...[this is] not about youth activism. This is not about us... we don't want to be heard. We want the science to be heard."

Instead of submitting a personal statement... she sent Congress a major report on global warming along with eight sentences of her own.

"I am submitting this report as my testimony because I don't want you to listen to me," she said. "I want you to listen to the scientists. And I want you to unite behind the science. And then I want you to take action."

In some places, like Victoria in Australia, students and public workers are being actively encouraged to walk out of school and work.

"We want our kids to be engaged in the world around them, so we don't think it's fair to criticise students for holding a peaceful protest about an issue as important as this" [government spokesman to Melbourne-based newspaper].

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 man who shot 40,000 elephants wants to prevent desertification and fight climate change by using vast herds of livestock. And he might well have a point.

"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'."
