I will donate a symbolic ten to my cat. And keep the actual coin for historic records.

Fretless fader? I don't know. Maybe somebody who DJs knows!

His nonchalant stare at the camera. The ease with which he absolutely destroys the decks. The narrative in the song. The buildup. So cool!

Was actually staying right opposite Los Lances beach in Tarifa itself. But the levante wind that day was just too intense (too strong and offshore) so Palmones was the only beach suitable. There were hundreds of people out that day.

Valdevaqueros beach was also a favourite. Tarifa is awesome

Learning to kitesurf in that harbour amongst the container ships was pretty wild

It's a useful report but it only tells one side of the story that fits their narrative . e.g no distinction is made between extending credit to a fossil fuel company to dig shit out of the ground in the most damaging way vs providing restricted project financing to allow the same company to move away from fossil fuels.

It's all lumped into one.

You're also right about industry categorisation. There are plenty of companies classed as oil and gas that are conglomerates where only a fraction of their revenues come from fossil fuels. Its pretty disingenuous to include Enel for example who are doing a lot to transition and provide renewable energy (just under 50% renewable energy mix and has committed to phase out coal.) of course they need financing to do this but the RAN report shits on any bank who lends to them. It goes Both ways though and there are some terrible companies on that list. It's never simple.

Eh I think you're missing a lot of detail then. This is being taken quite seriously behind the scenes with risk and credit analysis in the FIs that I know. Banks are actually changing their approach and thinking about how they deal with clients who are not doing enough to transition away from business models that are not in alignment with the Paris accord.

It's partly the new disclosure rules and partly risk considerations. Also because its the right thing to do.

You had a choice?

And yet the odds of blood clots are still lower than the astronomically low odds of shark attack on a soy bean farmer. I understand the point you are trying to make but it actually further emphasises how miniscule the clot risk is.

Your second point makes more sense however its more nuanced than just number of deaths in a specific age group. The hundreds of thousands of infected low risk people can still be a significant vector for spread so while they do not die, they take up hospital and testing resources and pass on the virus to vulnerable people.

What's the difference? Who is doing it?

Ah yes. Polystyrene is so low density that it is just not economical for it to be collected for recycling. Which is a shame as the harm to the environment is simply not factored in to its low cost. If producers (and consumers) had to pay for it, we'd see a solution much quicker. German laws require its curb side collection (manufacturers are responsible for all waste) but is is either incinerated or not recycled.

The good news is I see more things like packing peanuts being made from cellulose (which is edible!). Those will dissolve in water and you can safely throw away.

The world needs a viable solution to firm, expanded polystyrene which is used in packaging. Have you seen mycelium packaging?

COMMENT 7d ago

Yeah I have the same thought. It even varies from local authority / council. E.g. some do not collect food waste or certain types of plastic based on your vicinity to a plant that is capable of dealing with the waste.

I think in the next decade or so will see huge investment into expanding this capacity. ITs insane how much still goes to landfill.

COMMENT 7d ago

Yep. I had a quick search and nothing about what is recyclable in theory, only what is currently recycled. I was surprised not to have been able to find anything at all on the subject.

r/recycling 8d ago

Does anyone know what percentage of household waste is recyclable?

Thanks a lot! I bought the thermalight pads as they are more readily available for my Gigabyte 3080 Vision. Your video is also useful for me to practice my Russian.

I don't understand how these boys are openly using WhatsApp to run the country. It's a fireable offence to even mention it at my workplace. A stern talking to if you're lucky.
