Things you can do instead of watching YouTube videos:
- Work on that creative project you've had in your head for a while
- Read that book you've been wanting to start/finish
- Look up (on duckduckgo) information about something you're curious to learn about
- Dance to some music
- Make a tik tok video
Arguments by indigenous people, against #carbonpricing:
- > Carbon pricing, including carbon trading, carbon tax-es and carbon offsets, are false solutions to climate change that do NOT keep fossil fuels in the ground.
- > Carbon taxes will always be low, will always be evad-ed, do not cut pollution to the degree needed, and are greenwash.
-> Carbon trading, carbon offsets and REDD+ are fraud-ulent climate mitigation mechanisms that in fact help corporations and governments keep extracting and burning fossil fuels.
-> Token revenues distributed to environmental justice communities from carbon trading or carbon pricing can never compensate for the destruction wrought by the extraction and pollution that is the source of that revenue.
-> The injustices, racism and colonialism of carbon pricing schemes are international in scope. Our re-sistance needs to be international as well.

If you’re not in my particular niche communities, you might not know about the community that exists around old ThinkPad laptops. But I’m going to tell you about it, because I think it’s awesome!
ThinkPad laptops from years ago are enduringly popular, because they have great support from free software, and they’re extremely repairable.
Not only are new or used parts extremely easy to come by, people are even designing new parts for these old machines, so you can upgrade rather than replace!
Pages load really quick, and you can toggle CSS and automatic image loading for when you're on a slow connection.
What I really like about it is that when a page loads, it's *done*. No JS running in the background, no magic happening, no ad servers being contacted.
@capgundeaths I wish you success in deceiving your landlord!
