COP26 sick jokes

Q: What do you get when you greenwash infinite economic growth?

A: Green growth.

My 2cent climate advice to the NGOs: try to walk on both legs. One is the science: atmospheric CO2 concentration is still increasing. But one COP ago, I heard a scientist complain that the science is not reaching the politicians, it is too complicated for them. But what they might be sensitive to is what the people want: real solutions or a greenwashing bonanza. Opinion polls would be the second leg.

At UN COP26 we will hear that there are still 10 years left to avoid climate change. Some NGOs are also repeating this lie. As a result there will be ZERO need for fundamental (economic growth) or structural changes (giving people a non-ZERO chance to do things differently).

It might well be the most spectacular greenwashing event ever, designed to give people the perception that the problem is being taken care of and we should all be thankful.

Greenhouse gas levels are at new records. Again
Concentration of CO2 in 2020 was 149% of pre-industrial times
Economic slowdown from COVID-19 had no real impact
We are set for a 🌡️ increase much higher than #ParisAgreement target of 1.5°C-2°C.

The levels of #greenhouse gases in the atmosphere once again reached a new record last year
The annual rate of increase was above 2011-2020 average
That trend has continued in 2021, says new WMO Bulletin.

Dear ICA, when you don't reply to questions, you create a "lose/lose" situation. The least you can do is to let people know if they are not worthy of your time, perhaps in a standard reply.

Some of the world’s biggest coal, oil, beef and animal feed-producing nations are attempting to strip a landmark UN climate report of findings that threaten those domestic economic interests, a major leak of documents seen by @UE has revealed.

A quote from the book:

A YouGov poll in 2015 found that 64% of people in Britain believe capitalism is unfair. Even in the US, it’s as high as 55%. In Germany, a solid 77%. In 2020, a survey by the Edelman Trust Barometer showed that a majority of people around the world (56%) agree with the statement, ‘Capitalism does more harm than good’. In France it’s as high as 69%. In India it’s a staggering 74%.

@aral I haven't seen any research yet on whether or to what extent corporate "social" media are able to "predict" whether a person will ever find a job or not.

I connect to a server. That server returns its GPG pub key, I check its fingerprint in a distributed list[1], i return mine encrypted and from then on comms is secure.

[1] if I can't find the fingerprint in my list or it is expired, I query the nearest DPO keyring for the current entry.

The bizarre "science" of economics makes it so that for the majority of people any benefit of economic growth gets completely cancelled out by inflation.

Re. Participation on social network social.coop

Dear Madam, Sir,

For the past years I have been a member of social.coop but I have never seen any postings by you. Would you be able to outreach to this communication medium too? social.coop/

This would be helpful for short-circuiting quick inquiries too.

Thank you

I'm looking for a fediverse server that would be able to run on a small arm device. I got about 200mo to spare and max 300mo or ram. Everything I found for now need at least 1gb of ram ^^'

Maybe I'll write an #ActivityPub server in C one day ^^'

I've searched for mastodon on

appropedia.org/

And I get 2 links, but no explanation.

Searching for fediverse yields:
There were no results matching the query.

Webdb chat is very happy on my RaspberryPi model 3. I've found surprising use cases in the past weeks. It is now a planning board, my development log, a ideas and latest tricks list and a list of the system links that I need all the time. All in just 4MB of resident memory, which is peanuts, even for the .

Another one for the list (perhaps Banksy knows more about the dynamics):
