@tralara:matrix.orgtralarahey everyone :) I'd like to know your thoughts on the mind blowing conclusions of this white paper : Animal ag is the leading cause of climate change and if we ignore it and just eliminate fossil fuels burning we won't avoid the climate crisis at all, it will actually get worse, and that we can sequester the excess CO2 back to safe levels if we switch to a plant based diet globally as the UN has been warning for years we have to do: https://www.climatehealers.org/animal-agriculture-position-paper "In this paper, we present the results of a Global Sensitivity Analysis (GSA) proving that animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change, responsible for at least 87% of greenhouse gas emissions annually. The burning of fossil fuels is currently the leading source of human-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. However, climate change is caused by cumulative human-made greenhouse gas and aerosol emissions and not just current CO2 emissions alone. While humans have been burning fossil fuels for a little over 200 years, we have been burning down forests for animal agriculture for well over 8,000 years. For the GSA analysis, we use factual data from the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other peer-reviewed scientific sources. We show that we need to transition to a global plant-based economy first and that blindly eliminating fossil fuel usage first will accelerate the warming of the planet. We show that the annual methane emissions from animal agriculture alone cause more incremental global warming than the annual CO2 emissions from all fossil fuel sources combined. We further show that the transition to a global plant-based economy has the potential to sequester over 2000 Giga tons (Gt) of CO2 in regenerating soils and vegetation, returning atmospheric greenhouse gas levels to the “safe zone” of under 350 parts per million (ppm) of CO2 equivalent, while restoring the biodiversity of the planet and healing its climate. This paper clearly illustrates why the scientific community, government institutions, corporations and news media, who vastly underestimate the role of animal agriculture and focus primarily on reducing fossil fuel use, need to urgently change their priorities in order to be effective." The data is pretty self-explanatory. This is actually great news as we can fix this shit and it doesn't depend on goverments and big corporations doing the right thing. It's literally in our hands Any hacker willing to take action on this data to reverse global warming? :) 05:06:26
@tralara:matrix.orgtralarabtw the same companies (Vanguard, BlackRock, State Street), that own most of big media, big pharma (80% of antibiotics go to livestock, and they make lots of money from lifestyle diseases caused by food), big oil, big tobacco, big war, etc own also big meat & dairy. You might want to keep that in mind next time you see an article in the (their) mainstream media about "how eating cholesterol is great for you" or about how "regenerative agriculture" will magically be sustainable when you intend to feed 8 billion people on it, which means breeding 80 billion cows, pigs and chickens (animal agriculture = 91% of deforestation and main cause of the 6th massive species extinction -200 species gone every day-, ocean dead zones, main cause of water pollution and soil acidification, leading source of methane emissions and one of the main sources of CO2 emissions etc), and killing trillions of marine animals (at the current rate, most will be basically gone by 2048) and deforestating even more to grow food for all those animals (that we don't need at all) - This is all madness and has a very clear solution 06:03:47
@1peter10:matrix.org1peter10If someone here had trouble with logging in/signing up to the wiki at hacc.uber.space lately, these problems should finally be fixed. Sorry that it took me that long. Hope you like the new look :-)21:36:51

@cAkwNLHysr:matrix.orgRW changed the room name to "hacc" from "HACC".04:22:18
@cAkwNLHysr:matrix.orgRW changed the room topic to "hackers against climate change - https://hacc.uber.space/wiki/" from "Hackers Against Climate Change - https://hacc.uber.space/wiki/".04:22:35

Could you change the title of the wiki to lower case? -> hackers against climate change.
04:24:56
@1peter10:matrix.org1peter10Can do. Should I change it via CSS, so that it is just displayed in lowercase or should I rather change the “wiki name” string?07:17:12

Looks great now! 🙂 Sorry for not answering earlier.

Thanks. I am not happy with the mobile view yet, were a shorter name than the full "hackers a..." would look better. I think I'll find a workaroud though.

hm.. maybe switch the font of the title to monospace, preferably of course to share tech mono
17:52:37
@1peter10:matrix.org1peter10 I am personally not fond of embedding fonts into websites (and having two different monospace fonts would likely look worse than it does now). But I'll look into it this weekend. 17:54:25

On my android phone with firefox it looks ok. hackers against climate change is fully visible in one line.

@1peter10:matrix.org1peter10Large images and loading fonts kind of defeats the purpose, given the fact that every kilobyte causes emissions.17:55:56

Yeah, but that search box ... I'll mess around with that this weekend.
