@email@example.com Also: there is a significant lack of systems understanding in reporting on different sectors' sustainability plans.
IIUC SAF is essentially just another name for biofuel. That means the more airplanes burn the less we have for actually critical uses.
Nowadays it seems every sector can separately take an overlapping share of the same very limited future biofuel pool and claim sustainablity.
@firstname.lastname@example.org @jruoh I can definitely believe that. Helsinki has the corporations, high salaries and competitive consumption.
I just don't think that abondoning cities is the way forward, but transforming existing infrastructure built for cars to suit people.
We definitely need to bring the deep rooted Finnish suffiency back everywhere. Especially where political power is concentrated.
That's why I would hope the people who understand that wouldn't move out.
@email@example.com @jruoh Insisting on maintaining the imperial mode of living is definitely the issue here. There are wants that simply aren't sustainable, like driving cars even though there's perfectly good public transit, or flying for fun. IMO zoning can't be expected remove them. Policies are needed.
So it's a matter of how to produce well-being most effectively with green policies in place. I believe the literature suggests cities are the best way to do it.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I use in Helsinki my dad's over 50 year old Finnish Snow Star leather coat, that's still in great conditition, super warm and grunge af.
I hope to pass it on to my kid in a couple of decades.
My wife hit a bug reported in August with a new #Pixel where Do Not Disturb still plays notification sounds. Only way to silence it is to manually mute the combined notification/ringtone volume, which in practice means she's accidentally radio silenced half the time.
She says her 2018 mid range phone is vastly superior to a 2022 flagship 95% of the time.
How bad can things be at #Google when "DND still disturbs" is a) not caught by regression tests and b) takes months to fix?
Fantastic and accessible new #degrowth comment article in Nature by all-star writers @jasonhickel, Giorgios Kallis, Tim Jackson, @jks and others.
There is much still to research, explore, expose, advocate and win, but the momentum is growing every day.
"In our view, the question is no longer whether growth will run into limits, but rather how we can enable societies to prosper without growth, to ensure a just and ecological future. Let’s pave the way."
Yet new leaks about the immorality of fossil fuel corps.
For example, BP claims publicly to be part of the solution but internally says it has “no obligation to minimize GHG emissions”.
#BigOil needs to be first cut out of all climate policy discussions (how they are allowed have any lobby groups in #COP meetings is beyound me) then nationalized, and then ramped down.
There will never be a time when they will voluntarily stop destroying the planet for profit.
