real talk:
climate change is serious, and we need to take serious, large-scale action to mitigate it.
when i say :bancars: #bancars , this is shorthand. but: don't be stressing about your personal issues, *like that guardian article says*, addressing climate change is about society-wide choices. and as a society, we have chosen cars to transport us. this is not about you, or your job, or your kids.
reliance on personal automobiles needs to stop at the society level. this is not about you.

I wrote two critical posts about Google this weekend and what happens on Monday?

Google services down.

spokespersons frequently lie and say the search results are a result of some "algorithm". That's simply not true. Google has about 100k people, mostly contractors, (that's a lot, isn't it) who manually ranks websites based on a set of guidelines. It's not AI, or some "algorithm", deciding what you do and don't find using Google.

The guidelines they are using:

My employer eliminated 401k matching at the beginning of the pandemic, put a large number of employees of partial UI in the summer, won't be doing Xmas bonuses, and probably won't reinstitute 401k matching in the new year.

Profits are higher than ever. Our economic system is so backwards.

Maybe he'll start with Lutheran theology that would be apt.

Shouts out to real ones like CCK Philosophy, who pulled the Chad move of providing a public torrent magnet link when Studio Ghibli DMCA'd one of their videos.

That's what you do when you actually give a fuck about the arguments you're making and not how many people Google can count as viewers of your video.
