This thread is dedicated to our accomplishment of having broken the upper limit of sea surface temperature and the lower limit of antarctic sea ice amount charts this summer, hence ushering our species firmly into the capitalocene. Good job guys! Welcome to the future.

Here's an article about that:

As for the news, there is a drought blocking shipping at the Panama canal, bad wildfires in North America and Greece, persistent heatwaves in eastern Europe and northern Africa, and floods in central and eastern China.

somewhere in the void Voyagers RTGs still would produce milliwatts


Bro try 2040, battery parks are now killing the gas industry which is pushing more investments toward solar which is pushing more investments toward Battery Energy Storage Systems. The fossil fuel ship is sinking fast, we are now in a renewable positive feedback loop and that is added to the fact that their growth was already exponential. With how things are going by the end of the decade most generation will be renewables. CO2 emissions are peaking in 2024 or maybe even this year.
Coal burners, baseload retards and nukeheads are basically as dumb and delusional as flat earthers at this point.


still wont sustain global energy needs and development


starting to wonder if north korea is going to be one of the few survivors. The necessary requirements needed to survive this climate disaster is something most nations wont be able to do. Meanwhile, north korea has arguably all the state measures, economic organization and etc to survive since ya know they've been in a economic siege and semi isolated state since the 90s.

I love how just mask-off predatory everything is getting and how people just accept it.

My phone just updated (mandatory) and now includes a piece of bloatware called "Smart Switch" that accomplishes what used to be a matter of connecting a USB: moving files from your phone onto a computer. To use this "new" feature, of course you make an account and confirm your email and phone number and agree to the terms and conditions (which is multiple pages long).

I almost started a MUBI subscription because I thought they had a foreign film I've been dying to see, only to find out in near-invisible text at the bottom that they "currently do not offer this title." This is below a giant heading that all but says "watch this film and more on MUBI"

And so on. Disposable vape pens. "Cloud computing." "Gas Station TV." There are currently electric bikes for sale that require downloading an app to allow you to use them. if anyone is left defending the profit motive as breeding innovation and imagination, they're basically forced to blame the Jews for messing things up, lest they become dreaded socialists.

people being forced to switch to linux isnt a bad thing


Except they will continue using Windows


There's hardware that literally becomes worse if you install its accompanying software. For example printers, oftentimes if you install their software then the software will block you from using anything EXCEPT that software. Basically malware.


>Disposable vape pens
Explain to me how these are supposedly more predatory than cigarettes?


Well they create a shitload of electrical pollution

Even poorer LatAm countries have cut ties with Israel. Why does China "need" Israel to the point that Chinese citizens are converting and making aliyah?

That, and the Israeli government frequently promoted mixed marriages between Mizrahis and Ashkenazis in the 50s-60s in order to break down the divide and create a new, artificial “Israeli” identity. It’s not unusual to see Israelis who will tell you their ancestors came from five or six different countries. If Ayelet is part Moroccan, part German, part Polish, part Romanian, and part Yemenite which one of those countries does she return to after Palestine is decolonized?

The so-called melting pot in settler-colonial nations is really sinister once you think about it. The whole goal becomes to wipe out any identification the future generation of settlers would have with the countries of their parents’ origins and keep them attached to the settler-colonial project as their only source of cultural identity. That’s precisely why the early Zionists wanted to wipe out Yiddish abd all the other Jewish dialectics of Arabic and Spanish. Oh hell now they’re compelling Ethiopian Jews to marry Ashkenazis and Moroccans so their future kids won’t identify with Ethiopia but Zionism.


You aren’t being serious right?


The melting pot is inevitable when you place a bunch of different people from different cultures together. Look at Los Angeles where every other zoomer is half Mexican/half European.


>The melting pot is inevitable when you place a bunch of different people from different cultures together

No it fucking isn't, that's some gringo libshit. Communities have managed to live segregated and with destinct identities for millennia in many places.


Falling for the "melting pot" propaganda is wild when the only reason Hispanic euroids exist is because of Spaniard and anglo colonial mixing when it's inevitable that the Spanish decent peoples would go to America before Europe and even then the full blooded angloids fucking hate even blonde blue eyed or better facial featured Spaniards in the Americas.
Not to mention the whole African and Asian communities not fitting in.

The only position I have is that the USA should not be involved.
Otherwise things can just play out how they will.


The Venezuelan government has firmly condemned Guyanese President Irfaan Ali’s overtures to the US Southern Command (Southcom) and other military partners in the disputed Essequibo Strip.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry rejected Guyana’s “imprudent attitude” for opening “the possibility for an imperial power to install military bases,” threatening the region’s stability.

“The Cooperative Republic of Guyana is recklessly attacking international law by carrying out actions that aggravate the territorial controversy. This adds to its illegal conduct of granting oil exploitation licenses to ExxonMobil over a sea pending delimitation with Venezuela,” read the communique.

Caracas urged Georgetown to return to the path of direct dialogue through the 1966 Geneva Agreement, which Venezuela defends as the only binding instrument to find a negotiated solution to the Essequibo territorial dispute.

The Maduro government has repeatedly accused Guyana of serving the interests of oil giant ExxonMobil, the main oil producer in the Essequibo. A June 2023 Intercept investigation documented the close ties between Georgetown and Exxon.

On Wednesday, tensions seemed to recede momentarily with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Yván Gil holding a phone conversation with his Guyanese counterpart Hugh Todd in which they agreed to keep communication channels open.

For its part, China’s foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Wednesday that Beijing supported both nations “in properly resolving questions about border delineations.”

The Venezuelan leader likewise proposed a special law to ban dealings with companies that operate with Guyanese concessions and demanded they leave the Essequibo waters within three months once the legislation is approved.

>Currently, ExxonMobil is attempting to illegally exploit oil and gas fields in a maritime area pending delimitation near the Guayana Esequiba, a territory that the United States and the United Kingdom stripped from Venezuela through the 1899 Paris Arbitral Award.
>Despite being an area pending delimitation, the Government of Guyana granted oil concessions to the U.S.-based transnational company and other energy multinationals.


They should do like China and India and keep the territory dispute skirmishes to melee combat and stone throwing, then demand the US troops abide by those terms if they want to participate lel

If inflation is a monetary phenomenon as Friedman days and I do not increase the money supply when buying any good nor service, how can I possibly cause inflation?


Its the collective "you", y'know, the poor masses who depend on consumption


unemployment is a lever the federal reserve to pull (coinciding with interest rates) that can achieve certain results. less people employed = more money circulating in the economy = inflation is tamed. in their mind, you're just a greedy anti-american because you asked for that raise a few years back

It was also a huge blow to US credibility and will most likely end with a neutered Ukrainian rump state that wouldn't pose a threat to Russia even if it joined NATO. It also showed that there are hard limits to NATO expansion.


They created couple of jobs but lost en entire empire and industry. It simply backfired on all fronts.


>Coping propaganda unironically does more harm than good to the west.
And that's why it's good for the rest of the world.


what's the median price of education in a tier 2 city? I know the state regulates the sector, is there any official site, either in chinese or english, with statistics on the subject? specially on the "optional" parts, like highschool and kindergarten
also, where can I find data like the median salary tabulated by sex, age and city/province


Those probably are not SMIC chips due to low production runs of laptops it could be stockpiled Intel chips. It doesn’t really matter though. I don’t really understand why people have become obsessed with feature sizes when it doesn't matter that much for practical applications and it certainly doesn’t matter for military applications (which was the putative reason for Chip sanctions). Consumers also don’t notice performance gains anymore and are constantly arguing if they even matter. In the few cases where parts are used at max efficiency you can almost always compensate by increasing scale or power.

But yeah China is not going to be kept “15 years behind.” It’s a ridiculous policy and we’re going to see the US start punishing its own engineers and companies more and more as it’s evident they don’t have a lot of support for this outside of DC and the Thielites in SV.

Between the socons, the nazbols and the degrowth hippies it seems the left have abandonned any actual progress and is just animated by grievances against X demographic and wanting to punish "X people i dislike".
All socon "communists" talk about is destroying "wokeness" and the technologies that uphold it so we can retvrn to a slave morality abrahamic shithole and all "woke" "communists" talk about is deleting the technologies that destroy our beloved Gaia so we can go back to le wholesome smol bean primitive communities and become slaves to the earth peasants again.
What the fuck happenned? Communist regimes of yore were all techno-optimists socially progressive technocraties and industrial stronghold? Now it seems it have all reverted back to Woke Varg Vikkernes VS Conservative Ted K, it's really depressing and making me question what's the point of communism/any left politics anymore aside from wathever China is doing. China/Vietnam seems to be the last place where communism havent reverted back to conservative Nature Worship stupidity and carry the progressive dream that is the liberation of mankind throught AES.
I'm really blackpilled right now.

Matt Christman has a great series of blogs on this exact topic. Essentially, we are so locked into being politically paralyzed terminally online freaks that the only political concept we have left is punishing people we don't like.

The tl;dr is, log off.


So you're saying thingnoticer is the final form of the degeneration of the west
