Note that this doesn’t include the aspect of equity, feedback loops or additional warming hidden by toxic air pollution.

Sorry to bother but it’s time to act.

After a lot of deliberation, I have decided to launch a #Patreon with a modest goal, in order to support #fediQuest development, since two hours of me tired after work, every couple of days doesn't really cut it.

#fediQuest is a #federated question/answer platform akin to #StackOverflow / #Quora, powered by #ActivityPub.
