If you have an independently hosted WordPress blog, you can turn it into a Fediverse server by installing the WordPress ActivityPub plugin. This means people can follow your blog from Mastodon etc.

Here's how to do it:

1. Go to your WordPress dashboard's Plugins section, click "add new" and search for "ActivityPub" . Click "install now" on the plugin, and when it has finished installing, click "activate".

2. On the WordPress dashboard, go to the "Users" section. Click on your username and scroll to the bottom to find your Fediverse address. Share this address with whoever wants to follow your blog on Mastodon etc.

3. To alter the plugin's settings, on your WordPress dashboard go to Settings > ActivityPub

If you want to switch off or remove the plugin, go to "plugins", then "deactivate" or "delete".

NOTE: This plugin only works with independently hosted WordPress sites. It doesn't work with free accounts on WordPress.com.

It would be nice if this could become policy instead of just talk...

Mine e-waste, not the Earth, say scientists - BBC News

I find it fascinating how we as humans tend to see ourselves separate from the rest of nature and base our understanding and interactions with nature on this idea/perspective.

For anyone not yet having read this book, a simple, comprehensible yet serious and scientifically backed work regarding as it is coming and the effects it has on the world and us.
I wholeheartedly recommend reading it.

How many people who are fully aware and very concerned about our climate and ecological situation are going to doom millions of people and species to death because they "don't want to talk like an activist" because they give more weight to notions of respectability

Staggeringly, the @royalsociety@twitter.com are *still* actively seeking the prosecution of SR co-founders Dr. Tim Hewlett and Mike Lynch-White for the founding SR action in September 2020. Their trial is now set for February 13th, 2023.

We sit on the road to say that life as we knew it is over. We sit on the road to demand that governments act to stop climate catastrophe. We sit on the road to call on everyone to join us in securing a liveable present and future. Together we can make the necessary changes.

Every year millions of people, including children die from city pollution

IEA: Working from home 3 days/week, would result in 500,000 barrels of oil PER DAY left unburnt. The impact on emissions AND air quality indisputable.

We can no longer justify fossil fuel powered commutes in order to do work that can done without them!

This is what's wrong with the tech industry. The expectation that one should give their free time *EVERY DAY* or you're somehow "not passionate".

My response to that would be fuck you and your shitty fucking culture.

My kids and family are FAR more important to me than your ridiculous expectations.

For those who are interested, a to me very interesting initiative by climate scientists to study ongoing and recent cases of extreme weather in order to more accurately assign the role of climate change on said extreme weather events:

New #ObesityReport published today by the World Health Organisation European Régional Office found 60% of adults live with overweight or obesity, and 1 in 3 children. Not one single country is on track to stop the rise in obesity (although they committed to do so by 2025). The report says it’s time to stop blaming individuals and instead focus on tackling the determinants of poor diets (incl. commercial determinants).

(The reason why I’m asking is that most policymakers typically blame consumers for doing the *wrong* food choices, as if they were the only ones responsible for our current unsustainable #FoodSystems - and it’s highly unfair)
