Dat veranderingen vaak niet door praatjesmakers ingezet worden, lijkt ook hier het geval.
Boer Peter Venner heeft bij mij in de klas gezeten vroeger, en was altijd een rustige jongen. Hij was wel de enige die harder kon rennen dan ik op de voetbalclub.

“I must not backlog.
Backlog is the mind-killer.
Backlog is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my backlog.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the backlog has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Riesiger Wärmepool im #Pazifik entdeckt

Im #Nordpazifik wurde ein drei Millionen km² großes Meeresgebiet entdeckt, das zur Brutstätte für marine #Hitzewellen geworden ist. In diesem Areal hat sich der #Ozean stärker erwärmt als im Durchschnitt, gleichzeitig sind außergewöhnliche Hitzeschübe dort 4,5-mal häufiger, 3-mal intensiver und 9-mal länger als überall sonst. Ursache dafür ist zu 99% der #anthropogene #Klimawandel, wie das Team ermittelt hat.

Thinking about Julian Assange today, and the state of speaking Truth to power in the west.
The man has been held in a maximum security prison, with no charges, no trial, no rights, and no voice.
And his crime is exposing the war crimes and corruption of the U.S. government.
In a way, Julian Assange is the Security State taunting all of us, saying, "If you tell the truth about us, we will break the law to destroy you."
Im going to keep living my life, but Im not going to forget this.

EU's ECT allows fossil fuel corps to sue governments for implementing green policies. Abolishing the treaty is a no brainer, but some EU countries are still on the fence.
