Paraphrasing: researching causes of our climate crisis, she concluded it's not that there aren't solutions (economic, technical), just they're not being tried.

The real problem is upstream, in our social-political system. Denial, complacency, and/or active resistance has prevented effective changes (here & elsewhere).

So the question is how to induce change in the system. She has some proposals!

I was just at the Extinction Rebellion meeting tonight.

FB, with more details: facebook.com/events/2030126993

Totally oversubscribed: 100s, standing room only downstairs in the St Augustine Church, and 50+ outside who couldn't get in.

But last-minute. Two organisers currently, need ideas, more people, funds.

Training day for the #ExtinctionRebellion begins!

Over 100 people have turned up to learn how to do non-violent civil disobedience in London next week, to bring home the fact that the status quo = ecological suicide.

Let's do this! #xr

Hi All,

I'm Ron. I work in a public library in Iowa and a MLIS student at Valdosta State (online). I would describe myself as a generalist. I bake bread, tinker with Linux, and watch TV in my free time.

Right now I'm interested in the idea of creating a Digital Community Archive at my public library. Kind of like a history archive, but also current stuff. I would really like to help rebuild my community which has been hollowing out my whole life.

I'm afraid that #solarpunk is too western, white and focused on fiction to make a change. People prefer fetishizing #burningman aesthetics to noticing the real changemakers around the world.

Have you heard about globalinnovationgathering.org ? Its a network of hackers from Africa, Middle East, South America and Southeast Asia. They do things some solarpunk writers only imagine, but there is little interest in that in the West.

Why not start #SolarpunkReporting ?

Hi friends.

Looking for feedback on how to best implement the demand for employee board representation.

Here's some interesting reading from way back in 1986 -- "Why America needs, but cannot have, corporate democracy."

There are a lot of tech folks who would rather be solving pressing real world problems instead of helping techbros and VCs get richer. I'd love to be a part of facilitating that exodus. #thinkingoutloud #latestagecapitalism

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
