Russians discrediting Russian army
In Russia, since the beginning of war, there had been a tad over 2000 administrative cases over discrediting Russian army (spitting at the propaganda insignia, pickets, anti-war banners, etc.). Small number that may be, I suppose it's an outstanding metric for the russian courts nonetheless.
If the shoe fits, the army has to wear it.

Promise, last time i'm abusing #askfediverse attention this month :)
Carbon offsets are at best a very limited resource and at worst a total scam:
* Even if it would work as well as possible, the earth’s land ecosystems can only hold enough additional vegetation to absorb 40 - 100 GtCO₂e from the atmosphere.
* Once this additional growth is achieved (and that takes decades), there is no capacity for additional carbon storage on land.
* The world emits 55 GtCO₂e into the atmosphere per year. So all we can offset is 2 year’s emissions at most.
So even if it would work (but zero evidence so far), offsetting is not a sustainable solution: it is too little and too late because we need to cut emissions dramatically (by 40 GtCO₂e per year) in the next 20 years.
And if that is not bad enough, in practice, it's even worse, because a lot of the saplings die in the first year, and the land used for tree planting was in general already sequestering carbon in its previous state.
So as it stands, carbon offsetting almost certainly leads to increased CO2 emissions, purely because those who buy them have no incentive to lower their own emissions.
I've been browsing some Japanese reggae outlets and was about to call their own music being blissful copies, true to the roots, but lacking substantial originality... That was until i had heard of this singer, and would like to shamefully rescind my initial thoughts.
