Our grandkids will thank us for giving them extra time to deal with rising seas, and we get to maybe save some species from extinction, BUT ONLY IF WE ACT.

We CAN make our kids and grandkids lives less horrible BUT ONLY IF WE ACT.

It will be much easier to act sooner rather than later.

Acting means: reducing emissions by 45% by 2030 and eliminating them by 2050.

(Btw shit like hoping that Elon Musk blocks out the sun isn't useful.)

To reach these goals MEANS: RAPID and FAR-REACHING... 2/x

I bike in part BECAUSE of the extra time involved, not despite it. It’s a recovering of time and life. It’s an oppressive and commercial culture that encourages us to rush and hurry and stress out about getting somewhere fast, usually to our jobs or to be consumers.

“Emotionally, intellectually, ecologically, cars desecrate the spirit of existence. They kill us quickly (collision) or slowly (air pollution, lack of exercise).“

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.

Recurring contributors: @hfrazey, @brennen@mastodon.social, @Jennybellium, @densetsu, @iangreenleaf, @britvulcan, @joeld, @yeahno, @paulference, @billmk, @brandon, @benjotron, @june @wafflesoup and anonymous.
