#whoopsies.
The other attitude, represented by many #climate #change #skeptics, gives priority to the #individual #will, and is wary of attempts to provoke its hasty #submission to the #collective will. It tends to assume that lasting macro-level change ideally comes about as a result of changes at the micro-level of #individuals and small communities. It believes that the individual will should first “be the change” it wants rather than waiting for a #change to be imposed upon it from without. In regard to climate change, this attitude toward will often manifests itself in a #suspicion toward #expensive and #burdensome #government #interventions, but in a welcoming of #self-imposed, #environmentally-friendly disciplines at the individual level.
yup.

When Workers #Control the #Code

One of these apps is Up & Go, which lets you order house-cleaning services in New York City. The cleaners are trained professionals—many of them Latin American #immigrants, who formed worker-run #cooperatives long before they ever started thinking about an app. That was a crucial part of what made Up & Go possible: The workers were already organized.

The #planet is burning. Why doesn't it make the headlines?


source: https://medium.com/thebeammagazine/the-planet-is-burning-why-doesnt-it-make-the-headlines-c74c9591ba9f
In the #media since the fire started, journalists and specialists have talked about the «disaster», «drama », «tragedy» that happened in #Paris. And while I agree with the global sentiment, I am wondering why human-induced #climate #change is never being spoken of in these terms.
...
The planet is burning just as #NotreDame was last night, and there are not enough firefighters trying to save it.

Meistens für den Anbau von Palmöl-Plantagen. Dieses Palm-Öl ist ein extrem wichtiger Bestandteil von zahlreichen kosmetischen Produkten. Sachen die wir alle täglich nutzen. Eine Firma wie L‘Oreal machte damit im Jahr 2018 4,9Milliarden Euro Gewinn! 200Mio Euro hat L‘Oreal jetzt gespendet. Für Notre Dame nicht für die #Regenwälder. Und jetzt fragt euch selbst: Sollte das wirklich der Job eines Comedians sein, euch das zu erzählen? 😉

According to a 2018 McKinsey report, China boasts 114 of the world’s 147 female, self-made billionaires (America has 14). And almost 50% more women hold professional or technical jobs for every 100 men in the Philippines. Asia is one of the most progressive regions for women, yet stereotypes of what Asian women are like and look like persist. BBH Singapore’s ‘See Different’ collection of images seeks to change that by showing the true diversity and personality of women across the Asian region.... show more

Our connected devices are hiding a big secret. They use energy—a lot of it. Every time you use your phone, your computer, or your smart TV to access the internet, you’re sending data requests to warehouse-sized buildings around the world, full of hundreds of thousands of servers.

Why #Chinese #science seems so #secretive – and how it may be #about to #change


China's recent scientific achievements – including its embryo gene-editing research and historic moon landing – appear to be surrounded by secrecy. The global scientific community first learned about its experiments modifying the DNA of human embryos through rumours in 2015. And while China's National Space Administrative (CNSA) acknowledged in December 2018 that its spacecraft was preparing to land on the moon, it didn't broadcast or announce the actual touchdown. Instead we learned about it through whispers among journalists and amateur astronomers.
