Am I the only one wondering if this just a general observation or RMB-discussion-related somehow... :s

I just noticed that my puppet Taurgur is not in the top 10 of the Region for Unexpected Deaths. I suspect this is because everyone who goes their expects to die and, in fact, that is the only reason why anyone would go there. More research will be needed...

I believe it came up when he was trying his hand at some effect lines, but beyond that I can't say for certain.

I would like to have a little fun, I want to change my motto but I do not know what too. Send me a telegram with what you think my motto should be and I will change it for several days. The first seven people to telegram me will win!

First Winner: The Grene Knyght "Workers of the World, Unite!" -an old Gawainian battle cry

Argh, some Trumpbots in Wintreath have turned the vibrant RPing on their RMB into "Dems and rhinos [sic] need to work with Trump to build the wall because he promised it in his campaign and he won the presidency because Americans support that" nonsense.

Nice

The only sizeable economy in the world with a government that has the capacity to seriously tackle climate change is China - and though late in reaching this conclusion China is now rapidly becoming the world's leading planter of forests and reducer of its carbon footprint. Say what you like about them, the Chinese government takes the long view. In Europe and North America we'll continue wringing our hands and talking about having hybrid cars in 2040 while building new runways, eating strawberries in January and piling up the single use plastic. I wouldn't particularly want to live in China but I'm just saying.

Don't discount the power of municipal government when it comes to decarbonization. Many cities around the world have ambitious plans to pursue environmental sustainability. Perhaps unrealistically ambitious but the best-case scenario is that it happens from the bottom up rather than the top down. It is a global problem that could have a local solution.

On that note, I would like to encourage Forest to be mindful of municipal politics if you are not already!

I'll be out campaigning for elections soon enough. They've just finished changing the electoral boundaries to better exclude smaller parties, so I don't think we'll do as well this year.

Sadly it's going to be unrealistic. People are not going to give up what they have now and change their lifestyle until it's too late to do anything. Sh1t has already hit the fan and now we just wait how badly it's going to be. Don't want to be a party pooper, but realism is not very nice with this subject... We need lots of laws, harmtaxes and unwanted changes with consumerism, meat eating, building stuff and so on, so it's going to be lot's of forbidding and BIG NOES if we want to save humanity and try to prevent at least some species from the sixth extinction. For some it's already too late...

I know we need to leave this planet some day IF we survive this ecocatasrophe, but we can't be science religious and wait it to fix everything just like that. It can help but it won't solve anything with this speed and rate. I find it always funny when some people think that going to Mars is a good thing to at least try to save our species when we are really deep in this stuff and going down fast. Like going from fruitful Eden to really cold Hell ("temperature on Mars, with a common value being −63 C (210 K; −81 F") with lots of red sand... In our lifetime we are going to see some really horrible stuff, don't even want to think about the next generations too much...
