Can you be nostalgic for a time that never happened? I grew up in a forested area, but with a strong influence from both sci-fi and fantasy stories. Solarpunk looks like something my heart always knew, but that my feet never have, like it could have been the next town over frome everywhere I ever saw.
Reminder that the original concept for Zootopia, where Nick the Fox is the protagonist, featured pack of pigs who are elite police forces as minor antagonists, but John Lasshiter axed it because it'd be too cOnTrOvErSiAl or some shit.
The area were #tesla is preparing to build their new factory is in a water protection area.
Environmental protection is the last what tesla cares about.
They're charlatans profiting from this #climatecrisis by false promise of salvation. Instead of a systematic change of our transportation systems, they are selling the story of how hyper individualized transportation will safe the world.
What an obvious bullshit, yet so many believe in it, even so called "environmentalists".
SBC, Meta, Hiring an advisor
There is a new thread about hiring either a paid mod or advisor position. Input welcome.
@puffinus_puffinus and yes, part of it is just public image: you can't say y'all are keen on getting public input but then just postponing accepting that input.
People are burnt out and burning out, and folk that might have worked to unburn themselves for y'all's benefit are... rapidly losing interest, y'know? They can't participate and they want to and it matters to them. To you it might feel like it's been days, to them this is the latest delay in months or years of delay.
It ocures to me that #socialhome is probably the closest we're going to get to a fediverse replacement to Imgur and Tumblr.
There's only a few episodes out so far, but @fediversecast has some potential. Hopefully they'll be able to get some guests on soon...
We are losing our shelter . We are losing our healthcare , we are getting evicted and deported. It’s time we lose our fear. Tomorrow, the police will be deploying ruthless violence to kick people from their homes by any means necessary. They are ripping our shelter apart and leaving us to freeze on the streets.
For years #PaddingtonGreen Police Station has been left to rot by the government while people die on the streets from lack of shelter. People in the past few weeks have turned it into their homes. Their intention was not only to live there themselves, but to open it to a wider community, prioritising the homeless community in this borough. But the government cannot allow that to happen. They will put profit over people’s lives.
