Invisibles - The #plastic inside us

source: https://orbmedia.org/stories/Invisibles_plastics
“We have enough data from looking at wildlife, and the impacts that it’s having on #wildlife, to be concerned,” said Dr Sherri Mason, a #microplastic expert at the State #University of New York in Fredonia, who supervised the analyses for Orb. “If it’s impacting [wildlife], then how do we think that it’s not going to somehow impact us?”
...
“We are living in The Plastic Age,” the investigation stated. “Plastic frees us, improving daily life in almost uncountable ways. And plastic imprisons us in waste and microscopic #pollution.”

"why", he writes, "I don’t know, or perhaps I’m embarrassed by the knowledge that I simply want to cling to a place that has a smell I know well. Ultimately, these are the delusions of a solitary writer — one who no longer has anything to lose, having observed, at length, Syrians attempting to win back their country, then losing everything."

According to a video called "Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity", earth in the year of 2030 will not be a nice place. Instead, many #megacities with more than 10 million inhabitants will become a real #threat.

Please #Prove You’re Not a #Robot

To be sure, today’s impersonation-bots are different from the robots imagined in science fiction: They aren’t sentient, don’t carry weapons and don’t have physical bodies. Instead, fake humans just have whatever is necessary to make them seem human enough to “pass”: a name, perhaps a virtual appearance, a credit-card number and, if necessary, a profession, birthday and home address. They are brought to life by programs or scripts that give one person the #power to imitate thousands.

What the alt-right Think about #Africa ...

We should return to #colonialism. After all, the natives lived under colonialism better than today.
Some views are so inhuman, that I can't find words for it.

Why We Are Naively Optimistic About #Climate #Change

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?

Study Links Most Amazon Deforestation to 128 Slaughterhouses

"Fulfilling the annual processing capacity of a single large meat processing plant in the Amazon requires almost 2,317 square miles of pasture, an area more than seven times larger than New York City."

When Will the #Planet Be Too Hot For Humans? Much, Much Sooner Than You Imagine.

When Will the Planet Be Too Hot For Humans? Much, Much Sooner Than You Imagine.

Plague, famine, heat no human can survive. This is not science fiction but what scientists, when they’re not being cautious, fear could be our future.

"War is quite probably the maximum threat to the environment and all life on this planet. Even in peacetime, even without the use of nuclear weapons, the expenses and operations of the military are an enormous, unnecessary burden on people, animals and the planet’s supporting ecosystems.
The fact that the US does not have a real, effective antiwar movement is not only a shame, it is a crime against all humanity who must depend on the actions and inactions of this benighted nation’s population."

The #Internet is changing civil wars. Watch out for these five trends.

One interesting #theory is that our increasing #connectivity through the internet is not having the effect of bringing us #together. Instead, there is a strong argument to be made that the internet, and its various functions, are tearing nations apart and fueling this growth in civil #conflict.

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.

Pro-Israeli #settlement MPs are ignoring the basic rights of Palestinians

The #water supply to Palestinians was restricted to two hours a day during the summer while Israeli settlers in the West Bank were able to both legally and illegally obtain enough water to irrigate lavish gardens and fill swimming pools.

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.
