Great letter.

  • methane up 150%
  • methane caused 30% of heating
  • reducing methane will quickly reduce emissions
  • can we listen to scientists, not CEOs of gas companies?

Today in scams, a dodgy MyGov email with a handy QR code to help you log in and claim an early tax refund!

Which is, of course, a SCAM. A total and absolute scam.

Archaeologists Unearth the Oldest Aboriginal Pottery in Australia
https://news-artnet-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/news.artnet.com/art-world/oldest-aboriginal-pottery-australia-2467880/amp-page?amp_gsa=1&amp_js_v=a9&usqp=mq331AQGsAEggAID
The find refutes long-held beliefs that the Aboriginals did not make pottery

According to the study, “The apparent absence of pottery in Australia, as noted by early and more recent European observers… both reflected and was used to support, racist social evolutionary hierarchies characterizing Aboriginal societies as lacking cultural complexity.”

In an area just 90 x 90 cm, archaeologists found 82 pottery shards that are 2,950 to 1,815 years old.

Slice of 1960s / 1970s culture in .

Broken car badge from an American company that pretended to be Australian.

Something about "Hemi" goes with the badge.

Can't exactly remember what. It seemed meaningful and exciting at the time.

"The head of the IPCC has compared the rollout of carbon capture and storage (#CCS) to "trying to push water uphill," questioning a technology that the oil and gas industry has long touted as integral to net-zero emission plans.

The International Energy Agency has previously called for the oil and gas industry to let go of the "illusion" that carbon capture is a solution to climate change, pushing instead for energy majors to ramp up investments in clean energy."

Lies, damn lies, and "carbon capture and sequestration"

"Projections of the size and scale of a future #CCS industry should come with heavy doses of scepticism."

Also:
"When the Australian reported that “#Australia could generate nearly $600bn in revenue”, what we are actually referring to is revenue for the organisations proposing #CarbonCapture and storage projects. Right now, that’s mostly oil and gas companies."
