Wow - checking out your post history shows we've finally attracted the professional troll factories to these forums!

Keeping pet cats indoors would save millions of native animals and billions of dollars. So what's stopping us? ( www.abc.net.au )

Broader adoption of keeping cats safe at home would have large benefits for cat welfare, human health, local wildlife and even the economy. So, should cat owners be required to keep their pets contained to their property?...

We need to genetically modify cats to only hunt rats.

"Current policies alone likely keep warming below 3°C (5.4°F), nowhere near the “worst-case” scenarios."

You might want to read the article. Doomism isn't climate science.

What's with all the climate science deniers here downvoting a statement from an actual climate scientist ... !?

The whole point of the article (written by Mann) is that the policies already in place keeps us below 3 degrees.

Regarding your "currently happening", this quote seems fitting:

"I often encounter, especially on social media, individuals who are convinced that the latest extreme weather event is confirmation that the climate crisis is far worse than we thought, and scientists and climate communicators are intentionally “hiding” the scary truth from the public. It is the sort of conspiratorial thinking that we used to find among climate change deniers, but increasingly today we see it with climate doomists."

Do you consider yourself better educated on climate science than Mann?

Alonso should know by now that you're only allowed to drive according to strict FIA guidelines. There's no "racing" in F1, only passing cars that behave predictably at all times on the approved DRS straits.

The EU has made it very clear for a while now that European organizations cannot rely on American clouds or SaaS-providers. It's perfectly possible to go without - it just means a lot of IT-orgs who have relied on having a career "in Microsoft" need to update their skillset.

Ukrainians who have moved to the UK have highlighted the lack of dentists as among the most astonishing aspects of British life ( www.theguardian.com )

One woman in her 30s, Boyka, told the researchers: “We don’t have a dentist. It’s crazy. For us, it’s, like, impossible! In Ukraine the dentist industry is huge, you know, everywhere, and because it’s everywhere you just go and it’s like £10, £8, and you can clean it, whiten it like [a] Hollywood smile!...

I saw a clip where a car was plugged in but hadn't charged "for three hours". If this was one specific charging station then obviously it was having issues - not the cars.

A lot, likely most, of the trolling we seem to take as a necesserary consquence of social media seems to be influence operations from Russia and China (as the largest players, of course there are others).

That's what strikes people the most when they go from X to Mastodon. 90% less followers, but more actual engagement and practically none of the harassment.

It seems most people simply don't troll.

Sweden’s schools minister declares charter school ‘system failure’ ( www.theguardian.com )

It has been a disaster from the start, but it got worse and worse with time.

Basically they would bribe the children to get the parents to send them so that they could make more money. And that’s only...

They're as bad as any other school in Sweden. Stuck in the 1800s. They're just wasting the kids time with stuff that once was important but won't be in the future they'll live and work in.

Rote learning - anything. That's 50% of the time currently - which can then be used to shorten school days with the same. We're living in a world where information is available at our finger tips - and that won't suddenly become less so.

Every generation suffers from the same faulty thinking. "Because this is the way it was for me it must be the right way also for my children".
