Sleeper trains


#climateaction #climateemergency #cologne #fridaysforfuture #travel

In the current climate (pun intended), traveling by train is the most ecological alternative. Austrian Railways have understood this and are offering sleeper trains from Germany to Austria. Leaving Cologne in the evening, you arrive at Vienna central station early in the morning, with a full day ahead for meetings or sightseeing. Swedish Railways have Continue reading Sleeper trains

Copenhagen, #flygskam and no masks


#climateaction #cologne #socialmedia #travel

For a new client, I had to travel to Copenhagen last week. It originally started as a remote assignment, but we agreed on an initial, on-site meeting. So, how to get from Cologne to Copenhagen? Its not that far, about 370 miles (600 kilometers), about the same distance as Paris, Munich or Berlin. Short-haul flights Continue reading Copenhagen, #flygskam and no masks

Comas of temporarily abandoned cruise ships—maritime ruins in an age of COVID-19—have been popping up on the outer edges of Caribbean islands, visible in satellite photos of the sea.

Ships from Carnival, Celebrity, and Royal Caribbean now form a strange new archipelago, a network of ships “spread out loosely in three groups spanning some 30 miles” west from the Bahamas, The War Zone explains. …

...

[W]hat strikes me here is how the failure of a particular business model has had near-immediate spatial effects, verging on apocalyptic surreality: an overnight surplus of ships and their workers, with nowhere to go, are, for the indeterminate future, a kind of stateless micro-polity, inconveniently flagged to countries unwilling to offer support and unable to dock or disembark in intermediate nation-states for fear they might spread COVID-19.

In fact, as that New York Times link, above, points out, “An estimated 150,000 crew members with expired work contracts have been forced into continued labor aboard commercial ships worldwide to meet the demands of governments that have closed their borders and yet still want fuel, food and supplies.” 150,000! “The result has been a string of desperate emails, text messages and calls to shore. Pleas to governments have gone unanswered.”
-- Geoff Manaugh, May 7, 2020

The similarity in appearance of the ships to a field of tobacco mosaic virion particles is worth noting, as here:

" In search of the light "
The rules of the game are simple - choose a photo (referably your own), edit with gimp and tag #sundaygimp on a Sunday ;-) … and follow the tag

#sundaygimp


Note: if you do not use gimp, but still want to play along, just use the tag #Sunday-photo-edit and edit the images with your favorite image editor

Visions For Climate


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #fridaysforfuture #politics #travel

During the weekend we had a networking event with for-Future climate activists from all over Germany and many other European countries. Networking becomes ever more important in the climate justice movement, to unite and coordinate activities, as our governments fail to address the emergency were facing and even harbor plans to make it worse, by Continue reading Visions For Climate
