California: first state to ban natural gas heaters and furnaces.

Residential and commercial buildings account for ~ 5% of the state’s total nitrogen oxide emissions due to natural gas combustion. space and water heating make up nearly 90 percent of all building-related natural gas demand. California’s Public Utilities Commission also eliminated subsidies for new natural gas hookups. The new regulations will rely on adoption of heat pump technologies.

In addition to recent price cuts, today I further decreed: the warranty for all laptops sold is now 5 years, instead of 3. Warranties extended +2 years for people whose 3-year warranty were still valid today.

The laptops come with coreboot, which replaces proprietary BIOS/UEFI, and Debian Linux as the default operating system.

I sell coreboot, and coreboot accessories. minifree.org/

A very pretty map with co-ops autonomous communities, housing projects etc. :mastolove:

The entire US political spectrum is represented by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the center-right (by European standards) and Joe Manchin on the far right (by solar system standards). They are members of the same political party. The Republican party is an avowed enemy of what it calls the 'deep state,' which is essentially professional government.

I don't know if the US is technically a democracy.

Each [smartphone] device has an advertiser ID on it that it broadcasts. You can turn it off but on each OS update it generally turns it back on.

Companies have receptors all over. Mall, shopping centers etc. They're all around you.

The Fog Data company has receptors all over to read the IDs ... Companies will then buy into the marketing research and can see where people live, work, shop, etc. It's very granular.

Great tool.

If we manage to exploit anyone, we must exploit everyone. We must be fair. This is America.

The war in Ukraine has left the world not only short of important grains but also fertilizers. This could tighten food supplies.
Farmers are seeing prices for fertilizers skyrocket. Some may choose to rotate crops or use less nutrients, which could reduce crop yields.
