Diaspora's attracting some questionable types


I happened to catch an odd similarity in a couple of #newhere posts yesterday

https://joindiaspora.com/posts/a85d7459-115f-9fba-4760-0fb123772375

And

https://joindiaspora.com/posts/a85d7459-135f-9f7d-a108-97f831278834

Both titled "Newcomer", both with a pretty similar hashtag list, both with art rather than a photo.

That's @Matt Basler and @Denny Johnson respectively.

I inquired on each post if the users knew each other. Curiously, those comments have been deleted. Whoever's doing this is clearly trying to hide the fact.

The avatars are found elsewhere online.

"Matt Basler" (EboardNews) is using an Emmanuel Macron caricature.

"Denny Johnson"'s avatar shows up on AsianMack and Asad Mahmod.

No idea what the game is, but someone's creating multiple profiles on Nerdica.Net, a Friendica instance with ... no visible administrator contact. Maybe ? Federated platforms' lack of adequate alerting, monitoring, and flagging capabilities is ... not encouraging.

I suspect that the goal is to spam #ElectricSkateboard content, for whatever reasons. Possibly more.

(That the spammer cannot even properly form their target hashtag is ... amusing.)

Otherwise, you may want to block/ignore these profiles, and keep an eye out for similar.

Alstom presents hydrogen train in six federal states in Germany


The #Coradia iLint is the world's first passenger train powered by a #hydrogen fuel cell that generates electric power for traction. This completely emission-free train is quiet and only emits water vapor and condensation.

The Coradia #iLint features several innovations: clean energy conversion, flexible energy storage in batteries and intelligent management of power and available energy.

Purpose-built for use on non-electrified lines, it enables clean, sustainable traction while maintaining high performance.

This EV never needs to plug in

The dump truck, at 45 tons, ascends the 13-percent grade and takes on 65 tons of ore. With more than double the weight going back down the hill, the beast's regenerative braking system recaptures more than enough energy to refill the charge the eDumper used going up.

As Berlin tries to switch to greener transport, people are choosing the bike, not the electric car – and it’s becoming a status symbol

In a fashionable corner of the capital of Germany, Europe’s “car nation”, parents picking up or dropping off their offspring have lined the edge of a popular playground with luxury vehicles. There are summery convertibles, wood-panelled multi-seaters and slim racers – but none of them has four wheels.

Jan Edler, an architect, has picked up his son Laszlo from daycare with a Bullitt, a Danish-built cargo bike with a platform spacious enough to fit the one-year-old and the daily grocery shopping.

39,200 electric cargo bikes were sold in Germany in 2018, compared with 36,062 electric cars

Volkswagen launched its own cargo bike but was met with scathing reviews by the bike community
Four wheels bad, but three sehr gut. Germans climb aboard cargo bikes

Electric Dump Truck Produces More Energy Than it Uses

The Brussels Times - Electric vehicles emit more CO2 than diesel ones, German study shows

When CO2 emissions linked to the production of batteries and the German energy mix - in which coal still plays an important role - are taken into consideration, electric vehicles emit 11% to 28% more than their diesel counterparts, according to the study, presented on Wednesday at the Ifo Institute in Munich.

Mining and processing the lithium, cobalt and manganese used for batteries consume a great deal of energy. A Tesla Model 3 battery, for example, represents between 11 and 15 tonnes of CO2. Given a lifetime of 10 years and an annual travel distance of 15,000 kilometres, this translates into 73 to 98 grams of CO2 per kilometre, scientists Christoph Buchal, Hans-Dieter Karl and Hans-Werner Sinn noted in their study.

The CO2 given off to produce the electricity that powers such vehicles also needs to be factored in, they say.

Volkswagen vs. Verband der Automobilindustrie
https://amp.welt.de/wirtschaft/article190389057/E-Auto-Streit-Volkswagen-droht-mit-Ausstieg-aus-dem-VDA.html

» Die Liste an Kritikpunkten, die man bei Volkswagen erstellt hat, ist lang. Vor allem müsse der Verband von der Strategie der „Technologieoffenheit“ abrücken und dafür sorgen, dass alle Kräfte ausschließlich auf die Durchsetzung des Batterieautos konzentriert würden. Entwicklung und Förderung von Fahrzeugen mit Brennstoffzellen und Gasantrieben oder anderen umweltfreundlicheren Varianten müssten eingestellt werden. Das überfordere die Branche, sagt VW-Chef Herbert Diess.«

Auch https://www.faz.net/aktuell/wirtschaft/unternehmen/streit-um-e-mobilitaet-autoindustrie-zerlegt-sich-selbst-16093008.html:
»Der VDA wiederum hat BMW und Mercedes mehrfach aufgefordert, etwas wegen der Themen Diesel und Thermofenster zu unternehmen. Die beiden Premiumhersteller aus dem Süden wollten oder konnten nicht, weil sie entweder nicht in den Strudel von VW geraten wollten oder aus juristischen Gründen wegen Anschuldigungen gegen sie selbst nicht durften.

Der Haussegen im VDA hängt jedenfalls schief. Jetzt kommt noch der Krach um die Brennstoffzelle hinzu, welche der VDA promoten will, VW aber nicht. Hintergrund: Daimler-Chef Dieter Zetsche hat den „GLC Fuel Cell“ marktfähig entwickelt, der VW-Konzern hat nichts.«
