Eco-terrorism sure does sound better and better every day.

Trust me, right before 9/11, the government was wondering how to get EarthFirst! classified as a real terror group (especially to take eyes off of the far right groups). Timber folks were getting tired of repairing equipment and dealing with spiked trees. Be safe.

Hey orcas: These guys right here

What a read. We thought the world is getting smaller as people connect with each other through social media, and yet we are worlds apart on this one. These rich people just can't fathom a life without a yacht. To them, it's not luxury, it's a necessity, just like you and I need water. No matter how much education they might have had, it's not enough to get through their thick skulls to make meaningful change with their lifestyles.

That's why anyone with half a brain understands that being filthy rich itself cannot be tolerated. It doesn't matter how "good" of a person you are. Having that much wealth completely blinds perspective.

Wealth inequality is a disease for civility. Unfortunately, going without is much harder after you've had. I don't think people of obscene wealth can be reintegrated into society.

The biggest problem is if any of us grew up having access to things, or even got a cess tomorrow, we'd rationalize or ignore the issues.

Humans are very very good at "head in the sand"

I wonder if these things sink.

We need to provide the orcas with intel and proper equipment.

Its funny because seems like these could be made to be very self sufficient and you would think rich folk would want that.

The norm seems to be going for huge diesel engines and helicopter pads rather than sails.

Discussion of climate, how it is changing, activism around that, the politics, and the energy systems change we need in order to stabilize things.

As a starting point, the burning of fossil fuels, and to a lesser extent deforestation and release of methane are responsible for the warming in recent decades: Graph of temperature as observed with significant warming, and simulated without added greenhouse gases and other anthropogentic changes, which shows no significant warming

How much each change to the atmosphere has warmed the world: IPCC AR6 Figure 2 - Thee bar charts: first chart: how much each gas has warmed the world.  About 1C of total warming.  Second chart:  about 1.5C of total warming from well-mixed greenhouse gases, offset by 0.4C of cooling from aerosols and negligible influence from changes to solar output, volcanoes, and internal variability.  Third chart: about 1.25C of warming from CO2, 0.5C from methane, and a bunch more in small quantities from other gases.  About 0.5C of cooling with large error bars from SO2.

Recommended actions to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the near future:

Anti-science, inactivism, and unsupported conspiracy theories are not ok here.
