I'm finally ready for an after a few weeks exploring Mastodon.

I live on the shores of on the Peninsula in the of . This region is within Ojibwe Gichigami (“Ojibwa’s Great Sea”) homelands and ceded-territory, established by the TREATY OF 1842

I'm an with an interest in everything related to , including molecular to global aspects of the carbon cycle, energy and social transitions, new and old technologies for sustainability, forests and biodiversity, local to international climate policy, and the systems thinking approaches we need to make progress.

Too much of a news and politics junkie than is healthy.

I share my domain with a partner, a dog, several felines, two donkeys, plants, and occasional uninvited critters.

To my English speaking followers : we are trying to convince our Ministry to switch from X to Mastodon.

Drop whatever you are doing and take a few minutes to read this piece from @natematias — it's the most important thing I've read this year about the path forward in understanding how information technologies are shaping society, and what we can do to make this a force for good.

Report where appropriate; Block account and entire domain where appropriate; And remember:

In the late 1880s, when steam ships were replacing sailing cargo ships, one of the last roles for the sailing ships was to carry coal around the world to supply ports where steamships wanted to go. A clean technology was essential to enable the growth of a dirty technology. And even today, fossil fuels aren’t magically just everywhere. A gigantic *** 40% *** of global shipping is just moving fossil fuels. So eliminating fossil fuel also drastically cuts global shipping emissions. #climate #ships

100 years of March temperature anomalies over land areas through 2023...

The end of this animation is really quite striking - the only cold anomalies were in the western United States to Canada.

I’ve never seen a better billboard sign in my life. This is how it’s done. Bravo, Bud Light & take that, Republicans.

Great news for education.

Incredibly, Twitter has now made it impossible for public safety bulletins to be posted automatically by weather services, tsunami warnings, the MTA etc. This is consistent with Musk’s particular lack of interest in public service. But it also highlights the general problem of building networks on private property - precisely why we need Mastodon and other open source apps to take their proper place at the center of our online communities
