I'm afraid that #solarpunk is too western, white and focused on fiction to make a change. People prefer fetishizing #burningman aesthetics to noticing the real changemakers around the world.

Have you heard about globalinnovationgathering.org ? Its a network of hackers from Africa, Middle East, South America and Southeast Asia. They do things some solarpunk writers only imagine, but there is little interest in that in the West.

Why not start #SolarpunkReporting ?


@alxd i think of this lowtechmagazine.com/2011/07/so

But doing these things is hard, and not economically viable with very cheap fossil fuels around.

Hmm maybe i should try boil some water as a start.. A lot easier than this, which i'll probably end mostly rambling about... mastodon.nl/web/statuses/10091 (also you might have to melt it afterward anyway..)
