The most effective, available and scalable #carbon #capture technology is reforesting our planet. There are practically no downsides to this. #Restoration could become a driver for a new kind of eco-nomic growth. Imagine a tax-funded initiative to massively deploy forestry programs. This would be a jobs programme as well. Give people housing in the newly reforested areas so they can maintain them. Combine agro-forestry and permaculture techniques to feed the local populations and restore biodiversity. Make it possible for people currently in bullshit jobs or carbon-intensive jobs to retrain to this new system. It is possible. We have the means.

I've been getting adverts for fancy skincare/makeup lately, and this was in an ad from a company that sells £1k face cream. Miracle Broth.

“In Scotland, we spit the word out – ‘property’. You can’t own the land, the land owns you. What I found in England is there’s such a lack of physical space, and it’s usually upper-class-controlled. England has never recovered from the Norman conquest. That deeply embedded class system is so divisive.”

Amazing story of how the hebridean island of Eigg fought back against their feudal lords and won, the island has belonged to its community for over 20 years now. Decisions are made by consensus and the cost of living is half of that of the average "affordable housing" in the highlands.

did you know: its actually ok to dislike someone because you had a disagreement with them or they behave in a way that you dont enjoy and you dont have to reverse engineer a political reason to dislike them or try to convert people to your side

a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.
