Happy 18th Birthday, Greta!


~ January 03, 2003 ~

"Thank you so much for all the well-wishes on my 18th birthday! Tonight you will find me down at the local pub exposing all the dark secrets behind the climate and school strike conspiracy and my evil handlers who can no longer control me! I am free at last!!"

Welcome aboard! help make this a spiffy place :) :)

I recommend cross referencing your #activism, with things perhaps like #environment or #socialjustice ect :) to branch out more :)

Take care!!
 
Caroline Schmüser and Onno Tasler from german online journalism project #Krautreporter are doing things different. Together with a group of readers they are looking for good news instead of bad news. Here is a sampling of 77 good news from this year (in german), which you probably didn't pay attention to. I freed it from the paywall for you, you could also do it by just subscribing.

It is about
  • moments of hope in #corona -crisis
  • where #environment is improved
  • the best means against hatred and populism
  • small steps in #climate protection, which together might have a great effect
  • enforcing #democracy and cooperation
  • the road as living room - how #traffic can be improved
  • lesser violence brings more peace
  • more equality means more freedom
  • here the poorest get help
This sampler is from amidst our community. Krautreporter is the first german magazine that works and investigates together with the members as often as possible. We are convinced that our journalistic work improves thereby.
 

Windfarms in Great Britain break record for clean power generation


Forty per cent of Friday’s electricity was generated in windfarms thanks to blustery winter weather
Blustery winter weather helped Great Britain’s windfarms set a record for clean power generation, which made up more than 40% of its electricity on Friday.
Wind turbines generated 17.3GW on Friday afternoon, according to figures from the electricity system operator, narrowly beating the previous record set in early January this year.

A palm oil alternative could help save rainforests | BBC News

There's an ugly truth to the beauty products we slap on our faces and an unsavoury truth to the foods we eat: many are made with palm oil, which is responsible for the rapid deforestation of some of the world's most biodiverse forests, destroying the habitat of already endangered species like the orangutan, pygmy elephant and Sumatran rhino.
But now the biotech industry says it has come up with a solution - a synthetic alternative that doesn't involve burning down or clearing any rainforest. It says this could eventually replace natural palm oil in everything from shampoos, soaps, detergents and lipsticks, to food products like packaged bread, biscuits, margarine, ice cream and chocolate.

Interceptor Series Production to Start | The Ocean Cleanup


#environment #pollution

Science at work: they had an idea. They tested it. They deemed it not efficient enough, then science taught us that most plastic in the oceans comes from rivers. So they imagined a way to clean up rivers, and it works.

Great job. I'm happy to support Ocean Cleanup.

Economic Globalization....
A fish served in a California restaurant was caught illegally on a Thai fishing vessel manned by slaves. A t-shirt bought in Germany was sewn in a Bangladeshi sweatshop, where workers labor in unsafe conditions for starvation wages. The rising consumption levels of India’s middle class are contributing to climate chaos thousands of miles away, while the hunger of Americans for consumer goods from China is exacerbating the Chinese air-pollution crisis...These are just a few of the many faces of the global economy.

Corporate-friendly think tanks and media outlets promote the idea that economic deregulation has made the world into one global village, defined by the free flow of ideas and technology, international collaboration, interdependence, and a worldwide sense of community.

But the reality falls far short of this ideal. Our global economic system is so large and complex – with producers and consumers, CEOs and workers, and cause and effect all far removed from each other – that ethical choices become almost impossible, and environmental and human rights disasters all but inevitable.

It can be challenging to make sense of the workings of a system that is so vast, out-of-control, and deeply ingrained into the fabric of our daily lives. But the global economy can be understood, by starting with its origins in European colonialism, moving through its key drivers and structural elements, and tracing its consequences for people and the planet.

How the waters off Catalina became a DDT dumping ground https://phys.org/news/2020-10-catalina-ddt-dumping-ground.html

Fuck
As many as half a million of these barrels could still be underwater right now, according to interviews and a Los Angeles Times review of historical records, manifests and undigitized research. From 1947 to 1982, the nation's largest manufacturer of DDT—a pesticide so powerful that it poisoned birds and fish—was based in Los Angeles
