Re: 5G

I know that this is way off topic too but related to a lot of things discussed here.

A page calculating the CO2 emitted by google – and I am purposely not misspelling it!

You can read about it here.

Apologies for the nightmares it might cause.

Re: 5G

According to recent studies, Internet is responsible for the 2% of CO2 of global emissions, more than that of the aviation industry

I was last on a plane in June 2010.

I was last on the Internet right now.

This is a pretty meaningless comparison.

Re: 5G

5G Apocalypse article and film

The film in the Mercola article doesn’t show up for me because I implemented the Nuclear Option that Destry posted. (Many other videos don’t show for me either)

So here’s a link just to the film on youtube.

Re: 5G

We could avoid letting G spy on us on Youtube by means of countless trackers and analytics by posting links to videos via invidio.us: In URLs simply replace youtube.com or youtu.be by invidio.us.

This is the above link changed to invidio.us:
www.invidio.us/watch?v=ol3tAxnNccY

The invidio (it is “io”, not “eo”) website works even with Javascript disabled.

Thanks Uli, very handy to know. I’ve changed the link in the above post.

Re: 5G

Was just coming to mention Invidious.

You can actually install this Invidition FF extension for it too, and import a set of rules so that you don’t even have to do anything to direct a YT video to invidious.

Btw, HookTube, which I mentioned before in the ‘Decentralized alternatives’ thread is similar. (And look, you can watch a home birth. Yeah!) Just swap out ‘youtube’ in the URL for ‘hooktube’ and it directs there without giving YT the hit. Though in this case, I’ve noticed some videos won’t come through if the YT author set some config on the YT side. Could be YT is getting wise to these workarounds.

On the surface, I like the looks of Invidious better, though. It seems more sincere in what it’s doing; one simple thing to undermine YT, no website to grab your attention and show things I don’t want to see, etc. Confused Invidition with Invido.us. Not the same thing. So HookTube and Invidious seem to be alternate frontends to YT (and there are probably others), but Invidition is just the useful plugin that works with Invidio.us. I wonder if there’s such a plugin for hooktube. Probably could be, easily.


Wordworkin’ for you.

Re: 5G

I remember ‘end of the world’ predictions when I was a kid in the 1950s. My ‘Internet’ back then was two tin cans and some string. Learned that on Mr. Wizard, a kid’s show explaining science.

My childhood fun was reading a book, cycling down to the park, or watching 1 of 3 channels on tv. Or helping around the house. I’ve even done laundry by hand and hung the clothes to dry on clothes line. Cooked my own meals on a wood stove, etc. So, I’m not too concerned.

I realize you’re probably responding to the 5G Apocalypse links Zero shared, and I completely agree with your sentiment that we would all be better off without so much technology in our lives, and especially the internet. If that is your sentiment.

But, regarding ‘end of world predictions’, we would be amiss to not to educate onlookers at this opportune moment by highlighting another facet of the predicament society is in 70 years and several billion more oil and coal guzzling people later. For one thing, a nuclear holocaust was easy to avoid. Just don’t push the red buttons. Climate crisis, on the other hand, is a reality now in motion and more akin to missiles already launched. Not much anyone can do about it.

Point is, we can be skeptical all we want about the value of ever-more technology (and I am off-the-scales pessimistic to the point I know it is killing us), but there is a true collapse scenario unfolding, whether or not people realize or accept. No predictions about it.
