New people 🙂 Welcome to mastodon.green
Feel free to post something and mention me: @JohanEmpa to get a conversation going.
Just ask me if there is anything you want to know.

I believe we’re on path SSP1-2.6 – not good.
The world could be better than 1-1.9 – how?
The light blue line could go down to minus 40 by year 2100
- if politicians and companies took serious action for CO2 removals.
- - - - -
The numbers (1.9 etc.) are not temperature, they’re radiative forcing.

SSP = Shared Socio-economic Pathway
y = GtCO2/yr

Project Gutenberg felt bullied (their own words).
"...the German Court has overstepped its jurisdiction, and allowed the world's largest publishing group to bully Project Gutenberg for these 18 books, there is every reason to think that this will keep happening. There are thousands of eBooks in the Project Gutenberg collection that could be subject to similar over-reaching and illigitimate actions."
Project Gutenberg have blocked access to all 65 000 books for people in Germany.
A German copyright holder wanted them to remove 18 books. The books are still copyright in Germany but already public domain in USA.
A court ordered that it was sufficient to block access to the 18 book for Germans.
Gutenberg blocked all 65 000 books.
I question if we should allow space tourism at all at this point in history.
At a minimum we should demand that the CO2e emissions are captured before each trip.
Those companies should be net zero and not by planting trees, by direct air capture using technology.
I would go for A. They didn't fly an airplane to the moon. Launching yourself 100 km above ground and falling straight down again is a bit of an adventure.
But, If I could choose to stay on earth I would probably do that.
Unless, it was two weeks at the moon including a weekend trip to weightlessness in a freshly built space station. I would definitely do that.
That's the space tourism I want.*
* With renewable non combustible fuels and with a healthy sustainable earth and society below
If you *must* travel to space. Which trip do you choose? Why?
A: Sitting inside a capsule on top of a rocket. Capsule disconnect from rocket. The capsule lands with a parachute. (Bezos)
B: Sitting in a small airplane connected to a big airplane. Small airplane boost itself out the last little bit into 'space'. Airplanes lands separately (Branson)
