Forest Regional Message Board
I just noticed that my puppet Taurgur is not in the top 10 of the Region for Unexpected Deaths. I suspect this is because everyone who goes their expects to die and, in fact, that is the only reason why anyone would go there. More research will be needed...
Argh, some Trumpbots in Wintreath have turned the vibrant RPing on their RMB into "Dems and rhinos [sic] need to work with Trump to build the wall because he promised it in his campaign and he won the presidency because Americans support that" nonsense.
Don't discount the power of municipal government when it comes to decarbonization. Many cities around the world have ambitious plans to pursue environmental sustainability. Perhaps unrealistically ambitious but the best-case scenario is that it happens from the bottom up rather than the top down. It is a global problem that could have a local solution.
On that note, I would like to encourage Forest to be mindful of municipal politics if you are not already!
Sadly it's going to be unrealistic. People are not going to give up what they have now and change their lifestyle until it's too late to do anything. Sh1t has already hit the fan and now we just wait how badly it's going to be. Don't want to be a party pooper, but realism is not very nice with this subject... We need lots of laws, harmtaxes and unwanted changes with consumerism, meat eating, building stuff and so on, so it's going to be lot's of forbidding and BIG NOES if we want to save humanity and try to prevent at least some species from the sixth extinction. For some it's already too late...
I know we need to leave this planet some day IF we survive this ecocatasrophe, but we can't be science religious and wait it to fix everything just like that. It can help but it won't solve anything with this speed and rate. I find it always funny when some people think that going to Mars is a good thing to at least try to save our species when we are really deep in this stuff and going down fast. Like going from fruitful Eden to really cold Hell ("temperature on Mars, with a common value being −63 °C (210 K; −81 °F") with lots of red sand... In our lifetime we are going to see some really horrible stuff, don't even want to think about the next generations too much...
