You can get #cotton #bags pretty much everywhere. How did an environmental #solution become part of the #problem?


source: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/24/style/cotton-totes-climate-crisis.html
An organic cotton tote needs to be used 20,000 times to offset its overall impact of production, according to a 2018 study by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark. That equates to daily use for 54 years — for just one bag.
...
It’s also associated with forced labor, thanks to revelations about the treatment of Uyghurs in #Xinjiang, #China, which produces 20 percent of the world’s cotton and supplies most Western fashion brands.
...
You can’t, for example, just put a #tote in a #compost bin: Maxine Bédat, a director at the New Standard Institute, a nonprofit focused on fashion and sustainability, said she has “yet to find a municipal compost that will accept textiles.”
...
Some brands are turning to other #textile solutions. The British designer Ally Capellino recently swapped cotton for #hemp, while Ms. Hindmarch introduced a new version of her original tote, this time made from recycled water bottles; Nordstrom also uses similar bags in its stores.

Ancient Brains: Inside the Extraordinary Preservation of a 310-Million-Year-Old Nervous System

Charles Darwin famously discussed the “imperfections” of the geological record in his book On the Origin of Species. He correctly pointed out that unless conditions are just right, it’s unlikely for organisms to be preserved as fossils, even those with bones and shells.

I’m tired of watching the #world end. It’s time to get radical on the #climate #crisis


source: https://www.thestar.com/opinion/contributors/2021/07/09/im-tired-of-watching-the-world-end-its-time-to-get-radical-on-the-climate-crisis.html
Every morning I wake up and watch the world end. I’m aware this seems melodramatic. However, it’s the cold, hard truth. We use the phrases 'climate crisis' and 'climate emergency' not because we wish to ignite fear, but because they are accurate.
...
Too often, the steps we must take to curb the climate crisis are dismissed as too radical, too costly, too inconvenient. Compared to what? Is making ecocide an international #crime more radical than allowing the ocean to catch fire because it’s profitable for Big #Oil? Is stopping fossil fuel subsidies more radical than logging 2,000-year-old cedars on Vancouver Island? Is investing in a just transition to a sustainable economy for all workers more radical than bulldozing sacred sites and forcing oil pipelines through Indigenous burial grounds at gunpoint?

Can Consciousness Be Explained by Quantum Physics? New Research

One of the most important open questions in science is how our consciousness is established. In the 1990s, long before winning the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics for his prediction of black holes, physicist Roger Penrose teamed up with anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff to propose an ambitious answer.

Es ist mir ein Rätsel, wieso ich für diese Flughafen, Mietwagen, Hotel Touristen überhaupt kein Mitleid empfinde.

The First Mobile Phone Call Was 75 Years Ago—How Technologies Go From Breakthrough to Big Time

I have a cellphone built into my watch. People now take this type of technology for granted, but not so long ago it was firmly in the realm of science fiction. The transition from fantasy to reality was far from the flip of a switch. The amount of time, money, talent, and effort required to put a telephone on my wrist spanned far beyond any one product development cycle.

Imagine you could rebuild cities, avoiding making the mistakes that plague today's cities. How would you do it? How did people envision utopia? I thought of Brasilia first.

Recently Indonesia has set aside some 33bn USD and then some and might be on the brink of a next attempt.

This is food for thought.

#Facebook deleted a video from Brazilian #President Jair #Bolsonaro that claimed hydroxychloroquine was totally effective in treating the #virus.

It follows #Twitter’s deletion of a homemade treatment tweeted by Venezuelan President Nicolás #Maduro.

It may be good and right to delete #false #information about #COVID-19 - but are global corporations becoming the #MinistryOfTruth?
When do they start deleting #criticism of #capitalism because a life without capitalism is unthinkable for them?
