Hello friends, I am slowly getting into selfhosting and trying to convert my old Lenovo X230 laptop into a homeserver that I will use for backups, cloud storage and a few services for my friends. What's is your setup? What are you doing with it or what are you planning to do with it? P.S.: The laptop screen is usually turned off of course :)

Very clearly inspired by Malm’s stories in “How to blow up a pipeline”. You love to see it.



Yeah, I think it is important to rethink computing paradigms with climate change and sustainability in mind. The coming decades will be defined by scarcity. Certainly a topic worth exploring!




This is not a prediction, this is a simulated scenario for risk assessment. Hardly surprising that many institutions are doing these exercises after the global economy got wrecked by COVID. And hardly surprising that one gets somewhat close to some outbreak that actually happens.





It is a good documentary! The podcaster was active in the ELF during the 90s and gives an explanation of the deep ecology mindset that was present during the ELF’s heyday.



Thanks for the research. Not much we can do til mods/admins come online I guess



cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/152834 > > Because it couldn't possibly be more clear that existing political systems are committed to behaviors that will cause our extinction, one has to ask: can we just sabotage the fossil fuel economy out of existence? In this episode, we assess three answers to that question, and the underlying psychologies that produce them. One, the fossil fuel industry's, or in any case their proxies in the field of security studies. Two, the mainstream climate movement's, albeit a unique faction of it, represented by the Andreas Malm book How to Blow Up a Pipeline. Finally, the radical environmental movement's, as represented by a literature review I wrote in 2016. In the end, we'll see how worldview and tactics/strategy are deeply related, and how the climate justice narrative doesn't motivate the same confrontational behavior as the radical environmental narrative.

They were ethnic Germans living along the Volga River and in Ukraine’s Black Sea coast. The vast majority of ethnic Germans living in the Soviet Union were packed onto stock cars and were sent to Central Asia or Siberia in 1941/2 after the Nazis attacked the Soviet Union.



Breaking: My family who lived in the soviet union til it’s collapse think it was bad, particularly my two great grandfathers who were killed because they didn’t like the idea of deportation to the central asian steppes.


You can create communities by yourself my friend. Just click the “Create Community” in the navigation bar





I am a lurker on this forum and have been for a few months. I kindly ask you to fuck off and stop creating alt accounts. No one wants to listen to your cult bullshit here.



* Economic forecasts predicting the potential impact of climate change grossly underestimate the reality and have delayed global recovery efforts by decades, a leading professor has said. * Mainstream economists “deliberately and completely” ignored scientific data and instead “made up their own numbers,” Steve Keen, a fellow at UCL, told CNBC. * Now, a “war-level footing” is required to have any hope of repairing the damage, he said. The referenced paper: [The appallingly bad neoclassical economics of climate change](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/344034609_The_appallingly_bad_neoclassical_economics_of_climate_change)

Do you have a good article on the chinese leases? Sounds very interesting





Sounds interesting. What exactly is the goal or a possible use case for this project?
