Considering my interest in books like Silent Spring and its themes of agriculture and responsibility, I found Against the Grain: How Agriculture Has Hijacked Civilization to be an absorbing read. It delves deep into the impact of agriculture on human society and the environment, and offers personal, achievable ways to resurrect what is sustainable and sustaining in our own nature and the planet’s.

Human actions have led to the deaths of more than 100,000 Bornean orangutans since 1999, mainly for crop protection, bushmeat or the illegal wildlife trade.

For the first time in 15 years, researchers surveyed residents of Kalimantan, the Indonesian section of Borneo, to find out why people kill the great apes and whether conservation projects help protect them.

Carbon-rich peatlands continue to be cleared and drained in an Indonesian protected wildlife reserve known as the “orangutan capital of the world,” with 26 kilometers (16 miles) of new canals dug so far in 2023, up from 9 km (5.6 mi) in 2022, according to an investigation by the advocacy group Rainforest Action Network (RAN).

Sounds promising. What will the economic impact be on areas that currently specialise in palm oil production?

I wish I didn't have to tell you about this again, but I do. It's not being reported much in the news — and you know why?

Because it's not 'new' (the origin of the word 'news'), it's old. This has been going on for months now, and corporate news outlets are simply tired of reporting it. But it is still happening.

Canada's boreal forests are burning up.

At least 1100 fires are active, more than 700 out of control. Over 13 million hectares have been burned so far, with no end in sight. It's an unprecedented climate and environmental disaster.

While the #game is amazing, forcing current #gaming trends regarding visual fidelity creates such huge file sizes, which are overall bad for the #environment as it requires a lot more processing power, waste of #energy to download and install and forcing consumers to upgrade to more high-end parts.

That, but its also annoying as hell having to dedicate that much space to a single game 😅
I have a feeling its just gonna get worse over time tho...

Neither our university leaders or our state government are committed to #tenure as a concept. In fact it is hard to call what professors at public universities in #Florida have "tenure." I think one can make a strong argument that with a five-year review, we do not have tenure. Right now our government is on a crusade to recreate the miserable exploitative and extractive of USian history, but when they change their focus to #climate change and protection of the #environment I can hardly imagine my 5 year reviews going smoothly!




Prosecutors in Indonesia have still not charged the majority of men implicated in a slave-labor scandal at a local official’s oil palm plantation.

The New York Times reported that only 13 of some 60 men, including military and police officers, remain free despite dozens of victims and witnesses accusing them of human trafficking and torture.
