1/ Talking with bitcoiners about ecoloy, I realize most people have very poor understanding of the issues at work (the survival of humanity in the medium term) and are buying into the myths/greenwashing of the industry that wants to keep selling us its crap 👇👇👇
@FranckLeroy nice thread, totally agree. Because Facts. If you've not read it already I think you'd like Jason Hickel's book Less is More

@castagnini I don't and I won't. But I would pledge for stabilization of population and decrease of consumption rather than the other way around.
@FranckLeroy I just find impressive that if you don't have children you can pollute pretty much what you want and still be more eco friendly than me. I am afraid the stabilization of the population will happen in the painful way anyways...

Tech alone won't save us, but it can help. We need urgent reform of political systems and for people globally to abandon Capitalism, as it is the driving force for our destruction.

As you say, deserts are spreading, but what are theur new sands made of? I don't know but I doubt it's "useful" sand for semiconductors.
@meena Sand from desert are not suitable for concrete / construction. We are destroying beaches for this :
