Yes, it was graphic design all along.

I honestly don't understand where you got this from. Listening to this article lead me to very different conclusions. That we were trained to be wasteful after the invention of plastic by big corporations. That when people started, many decades ago, understanding this and wanted to make corporations "clean their sh*t", the corporations managed to shift the public narrative and put the focus/blame on us. And that we still live in a world that these corporations are actively influencing policies through lobbying for their monetary profit.

So consequently I cannot agree with you when you say

How could we not see that a symbol would want to put plastic in our balls?

We are the dumbest for not noticing that all along.

because it's not a matter of being smart or dumb. Smart people are not immune to being manipulated.

Nuclear is green but not renewable.

Is it tho? Can we really have green energy production under capitalism? How can we achieve sustainability within a plan that is based on eternal growth?

Israel says Hamas rejects key elements of US ceasefire plan for Gaza

From the same article:

The United States has said Israel accepted its proposal, but Israel has not publicly said this.

So instead of focusing on what Israel has to say about this proposal, we are asked to focus on what Israel has to say about what Hamas allegedly says on this proposal.

Check out their post history and decide for yourself.

I have, and this is why when you say

This is cosplaying online for clout.

I really don't see what you are referring to.

Well I dunno, defending Palestinians doesn't sound like spamming to me. I'd call it solidarity.

For anyone watching ... Like I say: All speculation. The truth is I have no idea.

What a weird rant to share.

Quite refreshing that this article was published by Forbes. Even tho I think more studies need to be made, I would argue that it's public perception that needs changing. Public perception is not necessarily influenced by science, if that was the case we would be living in different societies worldwide. I think public perception is more influenced by the existing narratives, and we have a saying on them. Maybe among other things, we might need to start asking different/new questions?

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply for this. Did that, saved it, logged in/out, but unfortunately it's still the same.

EDIT: It works!! After doing the above, I went back to settings and after selecting Show Read Posts and saving, all was back to perfect. Thanx for pointing out where to look around.

Initially I thought of writing a post about my issue and then I saw this one, and thought of asking here. So I noticed yesterday I had a very different visibility on Breadtuve (Solarpunk) when I'm logged in [darkly - left side] and when I'm logged out [light - right side]. Tried a different browser, same visibility. I also did take a look at my settings but no matter what changes I make, the visibility remains like in the following screenshot. If you can point out what I could have messed up or a workaround, please do!

Ah ok. I thought when you said

The Herero and Nama was a genocide, yes. Not something you could single Germany out for, though.

you meant that others where responsible for this genocide, not only the Germans.

It has the common ground in technological and military supremacy flanked by the native, European that is, population being really into the enlightenment,

Ouch. That's a colonial narrative. Scary.

Wasn’t me who made that claim.

You are so right about that, my bad.

The Herero and Nama was a genocide, yes. Not something you could single Germany out for, though.

I don't have someone else in mind? Any relevant link? (Yep, I like links a lot) I only know of the Herero and Nama genocide that was waged by the German Empire.

For the rest you mention about Nigeria, and since the article posted here is about Europe, I will kinda stick to the point I mentioned previously: It is important to be able to approach european colonialism as a whole, since it has the common ground of white supremacy.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 6 days ago* (last edited 6 days ago)

It’s definitely accurate to say that they had very little colonial involvement compared to the big powers.

I wonder how you could back this claim. Any link in mind?

Please take a look at the following articles and maps:

“Not only is CO2 now at the highest level in millions of years, it is also rising faster than ever. Each year achieves a higher maximum due to fossil-fuel burning, which releases pollution in the form of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere,” said Ralph Keeling, director of the Scripps CO2 program that manages the institution’s 56-year-old measurement series. “Fossil fuel pollution just keeps building up, much like trash in a landfill.”

The record two-year growth rate observed from 2022 to 2024 is likely a result of sustained high fossil fuel emissions combined with El Niño conditions limiting the ability of global land ecosystems to absorb atmospheric CO2, said John Miller, a carbon cycle scientist with the Global Monitoring Laboratory.

The Mauna Loa data, together with measurements from sampling stations around the world, are incorporated into the Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network, a foundational research dataset for international climate scientists and a benchmark for policymakers attempting to address the causes and impacts of climate change.

One-third of food produced globally is wasted while approximately 800 million people suffer from hunger. Meanwhile, food losses produce approximately 8% of total anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This study develops a food loss estimation tool to assess how improved access to the cold chain could impact food loss and its associated GHG emissions for seven food types in seven regions. This study estimates that poor cold chain infrastructure could be responsible for up to 620 million metric tons (Mmt) of food loss, responsible for 1.8 GtCO2-eq annually. Utilizing fully optimized cold chains could save over 100 Mmt of fruit and vegetable loss in South & Southeast Asia and over 700 Mmt CO2-eq in Sub-Saharan Africa. Developing more localized, less industrialized ('farm-to-table') food supply chains in both industrialized and non-industrialized contexts may save greater quantities of food than optimized cold chains. Utilizing localized supply chains could save over 250 Mmt of roots and tubers globally (over 100 Mmt more savings than those of an optimized cold chain) and reduce GHG emissions from meat losses in industrialized regions by over 300 Mmt CO2-eq. Due to the differences in the environmental intensity of food types, cold chain investments that prioritize reducing overall food losses will have very different outcomes than those that prioritize reducing GHG emissions.

Irena Salina's award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century - The World Water Crisis.

Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel.

Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis, at both the global and human scale, and the film introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the water grab, while begging the question "CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?"
