The Rise of the Valkyries

In the alt-right, #women are the #future, and the #problem

source: https://harpers.org/archive/2017/09/the-rise-of-the-valkyries/
The question of why they’ve embarked on this crusade has a practical answer: No #movement can survive on #men alone. As one #female pundit recently wrote, the prospect of the alt-right attracting women “terrifies the left, and it should, because they know that once a threshold of female involvement is reached, there’s no going back.” The philosophical answer is more complex — as are the intellectual contortions women must perform to justify participating in a movement so hostile to their #freedom.

“We cannot do anything about it,” [Kenyan environmentalist and chairman of Kenya’s #Water Towers Management Authority Isaac Kalua] says. “It is not our problem. We are not responsible for the massive #emissions responsible for global glacial melts. But we are suffering the #consequences.”

We will react under pressure, even if, by then, it will be too late to reverse or even slow down, in any relevant way, the warming trend.

Why We Are Naively Optimistic About Climate Change

Unfortunately, we are failing in the goal to make our children's world better than our own — and those who deny it won't have to see the consequences of their choices, says blogger Marcelo Gleiser.
 

#Study Links Most #Amazon Deforestation to 128 Slaughterhouses

source: https://www.ecowatch.com/amazon-deforestation-slaughterhouses-2466280439.html
Satellites are mechanical reporters of the Amazon deforestation process. By documenting the degradation and gaps created by the clear-cutting process over the years, they deliver the verdict: Two-thirds of the Amazon's deforested area has been turned into pastures.
Actually, we should reforest to mitigate #climate #change. Is #humanity too stupid, greedy or ignorant - for doing the opposite?

Palantir: the ‘special ops’ tech giant that wields as much real-world power as #Google

#Palantir’s #defence systems include advanced biometrics and walls impenetrable to radio waves, phone signal or #internet. Its data storage is blockchained: it cannot be accessed by merely sophisticated hacking, it requires digital pass codes held by dozens of independent parties, whose identities are themselves protected by #blockchain.

Palantir: the ‘special ops’ tech giant that wields as much real-world power as Google

Peter Thiel’s CIA-backed, data-mining firm honed its ‘crime predicting’ techniques against insurgents in Iraq. The same methods are now being sold to police departments. Will they inflame already tense relations between the public and the police?

Theresa #May was hoping nobody would see this Northern #Ireland document written by her cabinet minister

source: https://www.thecanary.co/2017/06/13/theresa-may-hoping-nobody-see-northern-ireland-document-written-cabinet-minister/
The #UK #government should be doing everything in its #power to support the #peace process. But Gove’s pamphlet shows that at least one member of the Conservative government does not support that process. And, with the #Conservatives apparently hell bent on risking long-term peace for its own short-term gain, the country urgently needs to speak out.

Donald #Trump Is Making #Europe Liberal Again

It was also just one data point, and so it had to be interpreted with caution. But the pattern has been repeated so far in every major European #election since Trump’s victory. In the #Netherlands, #France and the U.K., right-wing parties faded down the stretch run of their campaigns and then further underperformed their polls on election day.

A #newspaper clipping from 1912 that anticipates the global #warming potential of burning coal is authentic and consistent with the #history of #climate #science.

The furnaces of the world are now burning about 2,000,000,000 tons of coal a year. When this is burned, uniting with #oxygen, it adds about 7,000,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere yearly. This tends to make the air a more effective blanket for the #earth and to raise its temperature. The effect may be considerable in a few centuries.

'There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time.'

Klimawandel gibt es nicht mehr aber es ist Zeit für ein Wechsel in alternative "wirklich"soziale Netzwerke! DIASPORA heißt es.
Wir alle stehen in der Verantwortung diese Scheiße nicht mehr zu unterstützen. Deshalb fordere ich auf, diese asozialen Netzwerke zu verlassen. Alternativen sind da!
Ein Beispiel wäre DIASPORA
OPEN SOURCE, KEINE WERBEVERMARKTUNG, KEIN BESITZER, KEINE AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT, FREIHEITLICH UND VERSCHLÜSSELT.

MACH DICH FREI UND UNTERSTÜTZE NICHT MEHR DIESEN WAHNSINN SCHAU DIR DIASPORA AN.

Toward Accountability - #Data, #Fairness, #Algorithms, #Consequences

source: https://points.datasociety.net/toward-accountability-6096e38878f0
For the exact same reasons, school choice prompts people to self-segregate. Black families choose schools that are predominantly black; white families choose schools that are predominantly white. They did this long before open data, but with the rise of open data, self-segregation has escalated. NYC schools are now the MOST segregated schools in the country. Open data enabled people to segregate even though we know that this has serious long-term social and individual repercussions. Even privileged children are better off in diverse environments and, yet, most privileged parents will opt otherwise if given the choice.

Miles of Ice Collapsing Into the Sea

But they do not know exactly what the trigger #temperature might be, or whether the recent acceleration of the ice means that #Earth has already reached it. The #question confronting #society, said Richard B. Alley, a #climate scientist at Pennsylvania State #University, is easier to ask than to answer:

“How hot is too hot?”
