There are rules everywhere, you can’t just expect to be able to say whatever. What about bad faith commenters, spammers, illegal content etc.

“IP download logs of any Python Package Index (PyPI) packages uploaded by…” given usernames

Damn how badly did they handle this. Imagine not caring about customers data when it’s literally your business…

I don’t think that they are doing their cause a disservice. Yes, a lot of people are annoyed by them, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have their opinion on climate change shifted. Also they do set the topic on the news, which otherwise would 100% have ignored climate change, as always.

In Berlin an ambulance on duty was hindered by the “Klimakleber” (climate gluers) who glue their hand to the street.

Yes but in Berlin ambulances regularly are being stuck in traffic. That doesn’t excuse them, of course.

In Germany there’s a costand debate because last generation people block our holy roads.

I really really hate paper straws. Never really used a lot of plastic straws though, so it’s not a big issue. Also steel straws are like 2€/4pcs online and they are awesome and look soooooo cool!!

I don’t think the EFF means this in the “let only nazis speak” kind of way.

My guess is that meta sees another one of their social media sites go down the drain and this time they want to try something to stop it.

I don’t see this as a good thing. I see it as a logical step after the success of the fediverse. But I am afraid of how it will develop, with more commercial participants in fedi.

Aaaaw I used to always watch him and this article took me back in time. Glad to hear that he’s still got integrity. This is not often found in people with his wealth and status.

Oh wait is that a million per case??

Anyways, it’s a start for sure, and gets a few corporations sweating I bet. Let’s hope that others see it and behave accordingly.

Scientists hope the new findings can be used to hold fossil fuel polluters accountable for their climate impacts.

If people and governments would be willing the polluters of the past could be held accountable already. It’s not hard to figure out who chose to pollute and pump more oil despite already knowing about the devastating effects of it. Seize their assets, use it for building green power, mitigation and disaster control.

I believe that for western countries to act on climate change things have to get much worse here.

So we’ll see much more devastation and then solutions with bad side effects that could have been prevented, if we had acted earlier.

The population in western countries mostly isn’t willing to spend a little bit of resources now to fight very bad outcomes of the future. Also they’re obviously not willing to do this for other people, only for themselves.

Schwarzenegger’s bold call for a new environmentalism
What do you think of this? I don't think that this guy is particularly trustworthy, but I think it's good when large public figures have such clear pro climate messages.

Just like smart TVs

How will you advertise it? Do you already have friends who want to use it?

LMAO why are we even surprised anymore.

Because always choosing between German and English has made my Lemmy experience worse, I haven't gotten used to it.

Drivers overtaking bicyclists: Objective data on the effects of riding position, helmet use, vehicle type and apparent gender. Accident Analysis & Prevention, 39(2), 417–425 | 10.1016/j.aap.
>5. Conclusions > >Overtaking motorists pass closer to a bicyclist when the rider wears a helmet, rides away from the edge of the road, is male, or when the vehicle concerned is a bus or heavy goods vehicle. Based on previous work on drivers’ perceptions of bicyclists, we have suggested that many of these effects are the result of motorists making assumptions about bicyclists’ behaviours based on a brief visual assessment of their likely experience levels. We argue that these assessments can only ever provide a poor guide to the likelihood of a collision occurring and would encourage efforts to warn motorists of the assumptions they are making and the fallibility of these.
