@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00 I'm crossposting this from the #hackbases:matrix.org room btw, where we discuss hackers living and organizing together. 22:42:41
@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00 * Open Source Ecology, the quintessential hackers against the climate crisis initiative, and kind of a hackbase, are currently running a series of well documented residencies at "Factor E farms" in USA. https://wiki.opensourceecology.org/wiki/Apprenticeship_2021 Check it out22:42:55

@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00 * And here is an extensive list we maintain at CHT that is general strong left-wing media including environmental but also sociopolitical and economic reporting: pad.land/left-media04:35:39

Hi everyone, I'm currently doing this apprenticeship and would be happy to share my experiences, answer questions, or otherwise have a nice conversation about our work and how it might fit or we can collaborate with all of your great projects and experiences too.

@cryptogoth:matrix.orgcryptogothOur focus is currently building an open source affordable home called a Seed Eco-Home v2, with two prototypes on the land hear in Missouri, and several more being planned later this year and next year. Perhaps more relevant to this group, we'd like to build a Seed Eco-Home on cooperatively managed land in Arizona, with the goal of housing permaculture farmers who want to recharge the water table and regreen the desert (I know, somewhat ambitious!) But I have great hope for humans to enact and accelerate climate benefit.15:23:51

@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00 cryptogoth: do you have any pointers, or wiki documentation with resources, about what your desert greening plans and approaches are? 00:03:00

@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00https://roarmag.org/essays/white-skin-black-fuel-interview/ "Andreas Malm: To give a very simplified definition, I would say that fossil fascism is the aggressive defense of privileges called into question in the climate crisis, combined with systematic state violence against non-white people defined and treated as enemies of the white nation. We stress that this is not something that exists in any of the countries we study — we do not claim that the Trump administration was fascist, or that any of the far-right parties in or close to power is yet of that nature — but we see tendencies pointing in this direction. And the climate crisis is bound to get worse" 02:01:34
@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00"SH: The book is basically a call for the climate and anti-fascist and anti-racist movements to join forces. Both in a defensive and an offensive sense: the climate movement need to understand what is going on when fascists pick up a “green” rhetoric, and realize just how deeply race and racism structure our warming world. In Europe, the movement remains overwhelmingly white and often blind to the politics of race — this has to change. Anti-fascists, on the other hand, need to understand the environmental destruction that can come with fascism and vice versa. But this convergence must also be offensive: in a common ecosocialist struggle. Only in this way can we confront the underlying processes that constitute both climate change and fascism: capitalism and its crises."02:02:36

@rinderhacc:matrix.sp-codes.derinderhacchttps://www.severe-weather.eu/ pretty good explanations for the current weather events we are seeing more and more13:00:16
@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00Is there a good 101 for climatograms (edit: i meant the globe maps, not sure how these things are called)? Maybe in film/youtube format? I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of it in the news but it'll just be sensationalist red and purple colored swirls without any context (or interpretational help)13:28:19
@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00Anyone in the @room that is trained as a climatologist?13:29:20

Are you referring to the images with color data laid over maps, such as those shown in severe-weather.eu?

@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00I suppose, I am not sure if it is just one type of representation. I suppose they're mostly rainfall radars, like described here https://www.weather.gov/jetstream/tc_structure And these correspond to wind intensity13:59:55

@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00https://climatereanalyzer.org/wx/DailySummary/#t2 This shows temperature, but no dynamic14:01:50
@dcht00:matrix.orgdcht00Actually, there's a page called https://learnweather.com/ linked from the excellent severe-weather.eu , and I also found the articles there quite accessible. It was just a bit overwhelming as there's many posts, but it looks like it's possible to just jump in14:08:47

Restor, new major open-source ecology platform.
https://news.mongabay.com/2021/07/global-restoration-now-has-an-online-meeting-point/
"""
Restor is a map-based, open-source platform that combines on-the-ground knowledge, ecosystem research, and satellite imagery so people can better plan, manage and monitor restoration projects.

The locations of more than 50,000 restoration and conservation initiatives are now registered in Restor, as well as data from more than 60,000 scientists on environmental parameters such as climate, temperature, precipitation, local plant and tree species, soil characteristics and more.
[...]
Currently, Restor is collecting data from restoration projects around the world. Anyone with a project can apply for access to the site where they will be able to enter data about their project and ecosystem
