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'."

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

Liberals don't like anti-capitalism but they love anti-consumerism which is the victim blamers version of anti-capitalism

old people should take 1/3rd of the energy they expend getting upset about Climate Teen and do something helpful, like putting on a heavy coat and walking into the ocean.

I didn't expect to even finish this book, but it is full of these thought-nuggets that i really can't get out of my head

I do have some issues with some of the framing of historical events as more related and less coincidental than they probably were (not explicitly stated, but sometimes it felt like the framing of the book was doing a lot of winkwinknudgenudge)

but overall, i recommend it and I'm now interested in Erica's thesis¹ that this book referenced a lot

People that take the Glasgow-Edinburgh train have developed this anarcho-communist ticket sharing economy and I love it. It's because return tickets cost literally only 10 pence more than a single, so people just buy returns and leave the other ticket at the station they arrive at.

It's fucking beautiful and more folk need tae know about it

Today, Seattle Proud Boy Zac Staggs attempted to infiltrate the #ClimateStrike march in black bloc gear, but was reportedly identified immediately under his mask and got beat up... at an event organized by high schoolers.

question for tech/union fedi:

does anybody know if recent tech unionizing attempts (kickstarter, npm, etc) have worked with existing labor orgs/what orgs those are? i'm curious how much external support these groups had or if they were mostly homegrown organization efforts

it raining, i have coffee, Janelle Monáe is playing

i am having a very good morning so far

vox media is unionized, gizmodo group (which contains splinter, the root, etc) is unionized... as a result, these places tend to produce pro-labor pieces more frequently, and with more insight and nuance, than non-union newsrooms. they’re not perfect, of course, but i’m glad they’ve organized! ✊️
