Tax havens are destroying the earth
<<Deforestation in the Amazon and widespread illegal fishing have both been linked to tax havens, according to a new study.
Some 68% of the investments tracked in the Amazon came from companies based in countries where no tax is paid.
When it comes to illegal fishing, around 70% of known vessels are registered in tax havens.
Tax avoidance schemes say the authors, are essentially subsidising the destruction of the environment. >>

Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!
(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)
Alex Jones is a joke. It's his followers who are scary.

This image is actually a stack of 10 images, that's what it took to get to this level zoom from the 135mm lens on crop sensor raws.
It won't be cheap and it won't be easy, but people who seize the means of computation will succeed. Information doesn't have volition and it can't reflect about itself, but it does disperse in ways similar to a fluid. Information that humans store outside their brains is the cultural backup of our minds. I'm tempted to say it's a law of nature that we'll eventually see a million futures exploding in a million different directions. We're approaching critical mass at an accelerated rate.
