Even out here in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean I hear about the record amount of devastating fires in the Amazon. My thoughts are with those affected. Our war against nature must end.

@dessalines For the first time, I had a question which was not answered by Stackoverflow, but by HN.

I know that the Mastodon documentation is not perfect, but we need to be able to find

Hurricane Expected to Hit Louisiana This Weekend, and New Orleans Is Already Flooding - EcoWatch

It's not going to be cataclysmic. It will just be many problems in so many places that none of them can be solved anymore. And help will become practically impossible.

G20 countries produce about 80% of global CO2 emissions.

10 years ago, they agreed to phase out subsidies for fossil fuels to help fight global warming.

A report from @NRDC shows they have almost tripled subsidies to coal plants — the most polluting fossil fuel — since 2014.

Temperatures are about to reach 30°C in the whole Siberian permafrost-area during the next 2 weeks.
Unprecedented for such a long period, this early in the summer.

Some fragments from today's media discourse:

UK: It is far too expensive to save the planet

USA: Mass existential threat is a political "single issue"

NL: Everyone is going to pay the same carbon tax

Vous connaissez des personnes susceptibles d'être intéressées (manifestant⋅es, militant⋅es, activistes, etc.) ??? Partagez auprès d'elles ces informations ! On vous remercie beaucoup fort ❤️


Five reasons ‘green growth’ won’t save the planet

1) Growth trumps efficiency

2) Overstated technology

3) No profit, no action

4) Green consumption is still consumption

Mobilizon, the upcoming open federated alternative to Facebook Events, has reached its first crowdfunding goal of €20k:

This covers development of the events software itself.

The next goal, €35k, adds federation through ActivityPub, which will let people on the Fediverse share and join events. This could be crucial to helping many more people leave Facebook 👍

France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:

Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.

It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.

You can also follow its Mastodon account here:

“The EU uses up almost 20% of the Earth's bio-capacity although it comprises only 7% of the world population.
This means 2.8 planets would be needed if everyone consumed at the rate of the average EU resident.”
