1988 Internal #Shell Report "The Greenhouse Effect"

This 1988 Shell report, discovered by Jelmer Mommers of De Correspondent, shines light on what the company knew about #ClimateScience, its own role in driving global #CO2 emissions, the range of potential political and social responses to a #warming #world.
This Shell document is a rare, early, and concrete accounting of #climate #responsibility by an oil major.

#JackBaruth addresses the ongoing cultural #defenestration of #RichardStallman:
The #idea of truly #free-software given to the #world for #humanitarian purposes would not exist without #Stallman. He was the only person who ever had the thought. Which means it is more radical than #calculus, heavier-than-air #flight, the theory of #relativity, or the atomic bomb. It took someone with Stallman’s particular blend of Promethean #IQ and mentally #handicapped #social skills to push it all the way to #reality. You live in Richard Stallman’s world, whether you like it or not. He has had more #influence on how we #communicate in 2019 than any other single #human being currently living. Any sane #society would consider him a #national #treasure of greater importance than #FortKnox, to be #cherished and #protected accordingly.

Naturally, our society has decided to #crucify him. A young #woman with an axe to grind has instigated a #lynch #mob through an astoundingly ill-conceived and illogical bit of #emotionally dependent #rhetoric:

_There are so many things wrong with what Richard Stallman said I hardly know where to begin…

She totally can’t even!

_There is nothing I have seen a man in tech do that a woman could not. What’s more, the woman would probably be less egotistical and more team-oriented about it.

This is how you know the author is a #mental #child. Any of us “could do” many things. I could have written any song, novel, or movie screenplay that has appeared between 1982 and now. Except I didn’t. The Egyptians could have invented the airplane and the laser and the K-cup coffee maker, but they didn’t. Only children deal in potential. Adults deal in reality.

Also, I hate to tell her this, and its embarrassing that I should be the one to lecture an #MIT graduate on this, but #teams are for #normies, for #neurotypicals, for trash people who can’t retain multiple levels of variable dereferencing in their heads while #coding. Teams do not accomplish, and have never accomplished, anything of genuine #intellectual #value.

The #history of #scientific #progress is a history of #individuals. Yes, you need a “team” to actually #assemble the atomic bomb or the Intel Itanium or a commercial #software product. You don’t need a team to conceive it and do the mental heavy lifting. The effective IQ of a team is the same as the lowest IQ in the team; the #productivity of the team is a minor percentage of the productivity you could get from its smartest member working alone. Every once in a while you will see one brilliant person be inspired by another brilliant person in the near vicinity. This happens once for every hundred million times a “team” crushes the abilities of its members.
Richard Stallman is, by all normal human standards, a complete #lunatic. He also happens to be a genuine #genius. And more to the point, by every sane human standard, Richard Stallman has done #nothing #wrong. While I think his postulations concerning possible defenses of #MarvinMinsky's alleged behavior are both a) incorrect and b) irrelevant, there is nothing remotely questionable or surprising about his formulating and expressing them.

Can you even imagine Richard Stallman being courted and corrupted by #JeffreyEpstein? That not only stretches the bounds of #credibility, it's got the potential to be a #hilarious #comedy sketch.

Epstein: Hey, Richard, do you like to party? I know some nice girls who would like to meet you.

Stallman: I would not be happy at a party. Especially not if it's raining. You have a big face. Do you have a parrot?

Epstein: Um, no....

Stallman: Go away! Go away now!

But this isn't a comedy sketch, it is today's ugly reality.
On September 16, 2019, Richard M. Stallman, founder and president of the Free Software Foundation, resigned as president and from its board of directors.

The insidious ideology pushing us towards a Brexit cliff-edge


George Monbiot (The Guardian)

For neoliberal zealots, no deal represents a great opportunity to dramatically reshape Britain.

At first sight it’s incomprehensible. Why risk everything for a no-deal Brexit? Breaking up their own party, losing their parliamentary majority, dismantling the UK, trashing the economy, triggering shortages of food and medicine: how could any objective, for the Conservative and Unionist party, be worth this? What good does it do them?

Yes, some people will benefit. To judge by recent donations to the Conservative party, some very rich people approve of Boris Johnson’s policies. A no-deal Brexit might favour hedge funds that thrive on uncertainty, financiers seeking to short the pound, vulture capitalists hoping to mop up cheap property if markets collapse. But the winners are likely to be greatly outnumbered by the losers, among whom are many powerful commercial interests. (...)

The Brexit ultras in government are not just Brexit ultras. They are neoliberal ultras, and Brexit is a highly effective means of promoting this failed ideology. It’s the ultimate shock doctrine, using a public emergency to justify the imposition of policies that wouldn’t be accepted in ordinary times. (...)

Neoliberalism is the ideology developed by people such as Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. (...)

It was embraced by Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and most subsequent governments. They sought to implement the doctrine by cutting taxes, privatising and outsourcing public services, slashing public protections, crushing trade unions and creating markets where markets did not exist before. The doctrine was imposed by central banks, the IMF, the Maastricht treaty and the World Trade Organization. By shutting down political choice, governments and international bodies created a kind of totalitarian capitalism.

It has failed on its own terms, and in many other ways. (...)

The new politics that Boris Johnson’s government represents incorporates both neoliberalism and the reaction to it. (...)

Johnson uses neoliberal framing to justify his attacks on public safety. He wants to pull down environmental standards, create free ports in which businesses can avoid tax and regulation, and strike a rapid trade deal with the United States that is likely to rip up animal welfare rules and threaten the survival of the NHS. (...)

The creation of emergency is the inevitable destination of an absolutist, failed system. But emergency also provides the last means by which the failed system can be defended and extended.

Does somebody still remembers Zapf Dingbats, in times of Emoji? I do, and I remember my excitement when I first discovered them in the 1980s.

On the 1st of May 2019 the UK Parliament became the first country in the world to officially declare a 'Climate Emergency' this was a bold, yet needed act that the Parliament had done. The climate emergency means that carbon emissions must be reduced by 80% by 2050 (in comparison to 1990 levels) Ireland though took this a step further, declaring their set date at 2045. This move was a well necessary act and the Parliament is to be congratulated on this. It was a move in the right direction although this doesn't mean that Climate Change is under control yet. Every single other country out there in the world needs to declare some form of a climate emergency and needs to take action NOW! So what can you do about it? Well you can make your voice heard! Do things like tell others about this, go to protests issuing for action towards stopping climate change and share this post on your story or send it to a group chat! We can do this!

La plastica è il tipo di detriti marini più diffuso nei nostri oceani e nei Grandi Laghi. I detriti di plastica possono essere di tutte le forme e dimensioni, ma quelli che sono meno di cinque millimetri di lunghezza sono sono chiamati "microplastiche". Le microplastiche provengono da una varietà di fonti,
compresi i detriti di plastica più grandi che si degradano in pezzi sempre più piccoli.
Le microplastiche sono di interesse ambientale perché le loro dimensioni (millimetri o inferiori) le rendono accessibili a un'ampia gamma di organismi almeno piccoli come lo zooplancton, con potenziali danni fisici e tossicologici.

Drawing Hands


Lithograph Print

M.C. Escher / 1953

Drawing Hands is a lithograph by the Dutch artist M. C. Escher first printed in January 1948. It depicts a sheet of paper out of which, from wrists that remain flat on the page, two hands rise, facing each other and in the paradoxical act of drawing one another into existence. Although Escher used paradoxes in his works often, this is one of the most obvious examples.

 

Small announcement on my content and where to find it


Hello everyone! As you may have not noticed, some of the articles I don't share here don't appear on this platform. So far, so obvious - and indeed, there is content that doesn't appear here but which I have shared, though. These are articles I read after I go offline here and share somewhere else, namely on my two channels across, on Telegram. It's not a lot, yet an undefined amount that of course depends on what reaches my eyes and catches my interest. Also, it might happen more often in the near future when I will be more busy, thus seldom online on the Diaspora since I found the mobile application merely obnoxious, since it usually logs you out after a few days of absence, and since the speed of its owrk is rather slow. Of course I might as well log in via my browser, but na... Not that much of importance to me. Instead, I would like to recommend you my two channels on Telegram:
  • Politics & Economics:
    My main content, usually the US news and politics, also the content that relatively makes up most of the traffic on this profile. If you like to read it, then follow up there.
  • Polike im D-A-CH Raum
    Betrifft in etwa die wenigen Inhalte, die den deutschsprachigen Raum anbelangen, doch wer es gerne hier liest, kann auch gerne diesem Kanal folgen. Bloß keine falsche Scheu. :-)
I am not going to discuss the privacy features Telegram might offer to its users or not, this is not of my interest, it's all up to you what you discuss on this platform and which information you present to anyone who is able to find you, depending on your prvacy measurements. I use this to talk with friends and host my two channels which are solely about sharing the news. We don't need to communicate via this platform, this too is up to you. I just want to encourage you to join my channel and therefore receive a daily overdose of the news of around the world at maximum, but around the US and its peers at the least.

Thanks a lot for your interest or disinterest, I mutually appreciate. :-)

PS: If you feel interested in submitting any news I may have overseen, you can either tell me via the DM system of the Diaspora, or via Telegram, although I am more likely to see it via Telegram than via Diaspora's DM system. Just saying.

The World’s Oldest Rug Was Made In Armenia


March 27, 2019

The oldest surviving knotted carpet is the Pazyryk rug, excavated miraculously in the frozen tombs of Siberia, dated from the 5th to the 3rd century B.C., now in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. This square tufted carpet, almost perfectly intact, is considered by many experts to be of specifically Armenian, origin. The eminent authority of ancient carpets, Ulrich Schurmann, says of it:

“From all the evidence available I am convinced that the Pazyryk rug was a funeral accessory and most likely a masterpiece of Armenian workmanship”

When chemists and dye specialists of the Hermitage Museum examined the Pazyryk carpet for various substances, it has been concluded that the red threads used in the carpet were colored with a dye made from the Armenian cochineal, which was anciently found on the Ararat planes. Moreover the technique used to create the Pazyryk carpet is consistent with the Armenian double knot technique. This technique is particularly known as the “Armani baff”, that is “Armenian work” in several rug weaving centers of Iran.
