The backyard would flood & the toilet would gurgle & the smell of sewage hung thick in the air -she worried about what pathogens might lurk in the tainted waters, what it might cost to fix the persistent problems & whether the ever-present anxiety would ever subside. Residents in neighborhoods around hers have similar tales to sh-.

"Heat has become more intense in the past decade and is usually accompanied by severe water shortages, with tens of millions of India's 1.4 billion people lacking running water.

Climate experts say extreme heat in South Asia during the pre-monsoon season is becoming more frequent and the study found that extreme temperatures are now about 0.85 C hotter in the region because of climate change."

"Embrace AI or be left behind" is a condescending and heartless ultimatum. A false dichotomy that reeks of debunked social darwinist horse-fuckery.

Tech should adapt to people's needs.

Not the reverse.

@shiri @mmby @Daojoan I haven’t seen any reason to be optimistic about . Under all I see are dead arts, replaced jobs, and the loss of humanity. I think it’s naive to believe otherwise.

That’s not even getting into its impact on

Hello @bookstodon . The TLDR answer is: It depends. However, there are some interesting points in the article if you are curious to measure your own reading carbon footprint.

There's a crisis in Mexico, but most MSM journalists haven't covered it, or the reason for the suffering, :

MX’s drought, heatwave & water shortages have gotten so bad that even police blocked traffic in protest Wed. In recent months, residents of some MX City neighborhoods have regularly taken to forming human chains to block boulevards to demand water. In Apr, complaints about contaminated water sparked a weeks-long crisis in one upscale neighborhood.

Plastic can release toxics into the stomach, according to a new study.

Material left to float in seawater may turn it cloudy potentially releasing toxic chemicals into the water, and could do the same in stomachs.

When left in the water for six months, the pristine plastic also appeared to cause a kind of scum to form on the surface, turning the mix into a “soup”.

Not just the waters that are cooling all of a sudden...

Waters off Scotian Shelf are cooling, but scientists can't say for how long

Lower temperatures have scientists wondering if decade-long warming trend is over

Paul Withers · CBC News · Posted: May 08, 2024

"Since 2012, ocean temperatures off Nova Scotia at depth have been consistently warmer — by about two degrees above normal.

"For example, near-bottom warming anomalies were detected in the Cabot Strait between Cape Breton and Newfoundland, Misaine Bank off Cape Breton, Emerald Basin on the Eastern Shore and Lurcher Shoal, Georges Basin and Georges Bank off southern Nova Scotia.

"The large and abrupt warming was enough to constitute a regime shift, said Dave Hebert, an ocean climate scientist who has run the Maritimes survey twice annually for many years.

"Regime shift indicates a persistent change in the structure and function of the ocean ecosystem."

Today I'm collecting Fediverse climate denialists




This last one is also a white supremacist, so, yeah. I think their account is suspended from my instance but still active on, but I could be wrong. Update: I have been informed that Infosec has indeed suspended this account. Thanks!

Also observe these accounts interacting with a couple of somewhat well-known faux leftist accounts: Flexghost and RadicalEgoCom. Recommend those for a block as well.

George Monbiot says: "Trashing the planet and hiding the money isn’t a perversion of capitalism – it is capitalism."

Capitalism is not, as its defenders insist, a system designed to distribute wealth, but one designed to capture and concentrate it.

The story capitalism tells about itself – that you become rich through hard work and enterprise – is the greatest propaganda coup in human history.
