more and more, people will have to wake up and take _nothing_ on face value
quote from wikipedia on carbon neutrality:
"As recommended by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) the government has legally committed to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by the United Kingdom by 2050 and the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit (ECIU) has said it would be affordable."
I find this amusing. It's as if to say that were it not affordable it would not be attempted, or achieved.
With this attitude, don't be surprised when this pledge actually fails.
Well, considering how fucked this british exit situation has been and still continues to be ...
European citizens should truly consider how utterly useless their powers that be really are.
Stop pointing fingers at British voters (idiots though a lot may be).
Start asking why Europe is run by a bunch of morons who are incapable of making important decisions / actions that do not immediately masturbate their wallets.
good morning :)
I am developing a concept for the drafting of (a) law(s), as well as strategies for the monitoring and governing of said law and its subsequent procedures.
It is extremely rough, but please read here and help if you can or want to.
Edit the text, leave messages, ideas, thoughts.
Something may already exist that accounts for all of part of the concept.
This will not be new to a lot of people.
Feel free to educate me.

Recycling is totally useless
Reduction is not enough - not anymore

Let's see their algorithms and data-mining monkeys handle that
when you think about it, do you _own_ your phone? can you change parts of it?
or are you just it's custodian?
this also goes for anything you own with silicon chips inside...

Google is bringing AMP to Gmail not for your convenience or to increase speed, but to change your mailbox into a platform for marketers so that the ads jump into your face. Better switch to an email service that respects your right to privacy. 😉
