I am looking for a good book/article/documentary about the climate crisis to recommend to family and friends. Especially for people that are not yet convinced that we need to act now and that it is not just a problem of carbon emissions but also of climate justice.
I feel like The Uninhabitable Earth might be too tough and alarmist for that purpose.

Really looking forward to your recommendations!

Visited my favourite Alpine plant nursery today and OMG I brought all the plants!

Ok, 24 plants, for £55, which is a bargain. Most of these are for my new alpine wall, which I need to blog about sometime so you know what I'm on about.

Anyway, ALPINES!!!!! And the succulents are a mix of Jovibarbas and Sempervivums.

Plants! :plantmage6:

Ecological doom 

Fuck electric cars and fuck planting trees and fuck any token ecological solutions that don't even try to address the real problem

“We live in a world where captains get arrested for saving people’s lives on the sea; where a person downloading scientific articles faces 35 years in jail; where people risk charges for bringing contraceptives to those who otherwise couldn’t get them. Folks are getting in trouble for giving food to the poor, medicine to the sick, water to the thirsty, shelter to the homeless.”

I'm curious to hear everybody's opinion on briar vs signal. I really like briar's features. It seems like a solid design. I'd like more background on the developers, is it trustworthy?

Rant, Verschlüsslung 

Alle die mir nochmal erzählen wollen, dass Aktivismus ja nur sicher ist, wenn alle Tails oder diese 100% komplizierte Methode benutzen: Ich habe gerade eine Stunde einem Genossen geholfen auf einen verschlüsselten Mailverteiler zu kommen! In der Zeit hätte ganz schön viel anderes Zeug machen können, besonders weil sowas keine Seltenheit ist. Aktivismus darf nicht an der Technik scheitern, Repression sollte uns nicht lähmen!

Hoping for a better 2021? 

Our industries destroyed the biosphere. Ecosystem will collapse and the climate will reach new extremes every year.

Social media reversed 200 years of Enlightenment. Democracies will fail and more and more societies will return to Authoritarianism.

Capitalism absorbs more and more parts of our lives and turns social nets into profits. Working and living conditions of the 99% will worsen.

Ecological, societal and economic buffers are empty. This is the end game!

Is the support of #Bluetooth headsets (with a microphone) in #Linux pretty terrible or am I missing something? Trying to get a Sennheiser MB Pro 2 working properly. It looks like I have the choice between atrocious (worse than AM radio) audio quality via HSP/HFP mode or good #audio quality output with no input available via A2DP. Is there a way to get proper audio quality while using both audio in- and output?

Thinking about starting a new @bookwyrm instance. For the sake of decentralisation I don't want to join one of the few public instances I know of. But I really need something to keep track of my reading!

Wieso sprechen wir als Ende Gelände eigentlich über Kolonialismus? Weil die Klimakrise und der Kolonialismus eng miteinander verstrickt sind. Wieso, erklären wir in diesem Thread:
