As a young man living in the Netherlands, I was struck by a photo I saw on a wall in a Dutch Museum. It showed thousands of Jews getting into cattle cars - there were only 4 German soldiers and none were pointing their rifles at anybody.

There was more to the story than I had been taught and it started a lifelong study of life in Germany leading up to the war from about 1930.

The similarities in the UK right now are startling - be of no doubt of the direction Westminster is taking us.

Interesting #longread on the restoration of peat bogs in Scotland (with a section on Indonesia), which help to absorb carbon.

"Globally, peatlands hold more than twice as much carbon as the world’s forests do, according to the United Nations Environment Programme."

Are physical constants actually constant?

Think about it. Due diligence. Etc.
