KY-R representative Andy Barr invited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to speak to coal miners in his district about her Green New Deal, in an attempt to score easy political points.
AOC accepted immediately and began talking about how her plan includes pensions for coal miners in order to facilitate a "just transition."
Barr panicked and rescinded the offer, to which AOC said "we don't need his permission to visit his district and have a town hall."
Hundreds of protesters have taken to the beach in Australia to express their anger at Tony Abbott’s failure to address climate change – by literally burying their heads in the sand.
Hat jemand Vorschläge für weitere Grafiken, die auf https://antifa24.de/ (im selben Schema, wie die aktuellen versteht sich wohl von selbst) angezeigt werden sollten?
Grasslands are some of Earth's largest ecosystems, covering just over 40% of the world's land area.
Grasses evolved over 65 million years ago, and are some of the most versatile plants in the world. With meristems at their bases, they can easily grow back after being cropped. They evolved this way because of grazing animals, who trample and kill seedling trees but don't kill grasses. Otherwise, trees would outcompete grasses nearly every time.

Hier, ihr Bastler, wir wollen uns aus Holz ein um ca. 800mm höhenverstellbares (um es unter die Decke fahren zu können) Hochbett bauen. Was das Holz angeht ist da auch alles klar, aber: Wie würdet ihr die Verstellung machen? Ich dachte bisher an vier einfache DC-Linearmotoren, bin mir aber nicht sicher, ob man sowas ohne Schrittmotoren synchron hin bekommt...
Ach so, es soll halt günstig sein, die Motoren würde ich vermutlich in China kaufen.
I love this video on why some Asian people swap r's and l's in English.
* They don't do it like in racist American movies
* English l and r are really weird sounds that can be hard to make and hear. We just don't notice that because we're used to them
* Native English speakers are at least as bad at hearing tones in languages like Chinese that use them. Tones sound the same to us for the same reasons r and l sound the same to others
Last night I saw a band called "Clash Clash Bang Bang", which plays "SciFi Rock".
Also, they look fabulous :3
i like art in public spaces, especially if its context changed over time.
todays exhibit: the foot. this used to be a bronze statue of a female gymnast, standing in front of the gym next to the former "polytechnic secondary school". in socialist times it was a usual practice to place statues like that as a sort of motivation, to showcase what could be. after socialism...well, things didn't look so good. the statue was vandalized often, but always restored (eventually).
