Re: Dead White Man's Clothes: The Environmental Disaster Fuelled by Used Clothes

Also, regarding recycling, I often wonder if those bins actually get recycled. How easy would it be to just go to the landfill? Indeed. We have alternate weekly recycling/non recycling waste here although I've observed on some weeks it all gets mixed together. I don't know if it subsequently gets s...

Re: Dead White Man's Clothes: The Environmental Disaster Fuelled by Used Clothes

Washing such clothes also leads to microfiber pollution, millions of plastic particles which end up the water supply as they are not filtered out anywhere. My point though is why the hell is any of this plastic been sent to places like Ghana in the first place ? And how does so much of it end up in ...

SHUT DOWN THE CITY CITY TO ALL CAR TRAFFIC. The juxtaposition of a conservative candidate in an EXTREMELY progressive city running as a CC radical should make a headline or two. Excellent! Btw it might have been mentioned in the thread but a conservative solution might include universal congestion ...

JFK famously(?) asked every American to be able to walk 50 miles in one go. (This was the Cold War standard.).
Then what the hell happened ? :lol:

I am glad the drug is helping to some extent 7, and I hope things start improving further soon.

Re: Emergence of the Literature of Climate Change

@7wannabe5 - Maybe a children's book might be worth doing instead or as well ? A sort of warning that 'you're probably not going to live as well as your parents and grandparents did, sorry about that...' (Might need to tone down the sex scenes) Thinking about it a lot of the children's books I recal...

Re: Emergence of the Literature of Climate Change

There has been some historical fiction written about Doggerland, the inhabited land now under the North Sea which may have some contemporary resonance.

Time Song: Searching for Doggerland by Julia Blackburn has been very well reviewed.

Re: Emergence of the Literature of Climate Change

This may not be what you're talking about (I've not been following this thread terribly closely), but one of the main (primary?) themes I took from Kingsnorth's The Wake was contrasting the pre-industrial pastoral/Eden sort of utopia (in that book, it was pre-Norman England) with the very real real...

Re: Emergence of the Literature of Climate Change

@7wannabe5 ha, yes indeed. The double standards of 'the group' really were irritating though. They brag about their Christian values yet have no qualms about engaging in summary executions and stringing up bodies with warning signs around their neck. Although I suppose it's not an unrealistic scenar...

Re: Dealing with anger in the face of everyday evil

Oh well, we weren't the first civilisation to monumentally fuck up when we should have known better. We (probably) won't be the last. You can even see a funny side to it.

Re: Emergence of the Literature of Climate Change

James Wesley Rawles, who I believe runs a prepper blog, wrote a novel called 'Patriots' about some people who flee a collapsed government. It's big on bibles, barbed wire and guns (he really likes his guns) and they go around executing communists and waging war against the UN who decide to invade No...

Re: Any math teachers here?

I wonder to what extent teachers (particularly in the UK) are officially accountable for the results of the pupils they teach, @chenda do you know? Essentially it's the schools responsibility but teachers are accountable to a degree if they haven't made the progress they are supposed to, according ...

I know some UK math teachers for the under-12 set of children. They moved to Canada - twice the pay, half the living cost, and a twentieth the stabbings (location dependent on this one of course).
The stabbings might be but I'd be surprised if the difference in salary and col were that large.

Re: Any math teachers here?

I come from a family of UK maths teachers (and teacher trainers) and the general consensus is the only good thing about the job is 12 weeks of paid leave per year. I expect it can be rewarding for some at a personal level but don't expect any thanks for it, teachers enjoy very little professional au...
