i guess it is official. snow is now something that happens in seattle every year

Is climate change taught in primary school nowadays?

like, it's the periodic table, photosynthesis, mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell), and the "you have no future. The world will not be 'saved'."


video of seattle police arresting a 13 year old kid for a climate change protest

are you kidding me, someone CALLED the police on these kids

it's not like they were planting bombs on a pipeline, this was a very non-action symbolic protest and even that was too much for people in seattle

What's the word for vascilating between pure bliss from the sun and breeze and then eyes tearing up with feelings of doom because Seattle shouldn't feel like this this early

Is it «dialectics»

Also, is "vascilating" not a word? Why is it underlined

Climate change thought of (my) day: 'I should buy mosquito nets'

how I got there:

- seattle doesn't have mosquitoes due to climate
- seattle has a high amount of anti-vax fuckwits
- as temperature increases, mosquitoes will travel to seattle and spread "tropic" diseases to seattle
- because of anti-vaxers the death toll will be high

climate migration and climate refugee crises will exacerbate things

An example of the worthwhile take-down of steven pinker:

"[Pinker] purports to be presenting hard science, but often his sources are works of popular advocacy, rather than original scientific studies. Over ten percent of the notes to his chapter on the environment cite Stewart Brand's 'Whole Earth Discipline', a polemical work by a highly successful entrepreneur and business consultant — and is not Pinker's only source of this kind"

Learning to Die: Wisdom in the Age of Climate Crisis | by Robert Bringhurst and Jan Zwicky

I found it to be individualistic to a fault.

I'd recommend 'Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization' instead.

*IF* you are curious of what a neo-liberal take on the climate crisis would look like, it's a quick read.

I *WOULD* recommend the "Afterword" for a good demonstration of what a dishonest hack Steven Pinker is.

Everyone is "working from home" today....including my boss!

time to try to make my goodreads goal at the last minute

apple is building a $1billion campus in texas.

people i know want to "move back to texas to buy a home and put down roots"

these are all liberals who "believe" in climate change...

like, wtf. do you actually get what is implied by the climate change you "believe" in

"The problem is that the problem is us."

From the book 'Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization'

It is a weird time to have just separated from a serious long-term relationship and feel like the world is ending...because it actually is
