Why All the Hate for Greta Thunberg?

Yeah… Because hating on a 16-year-old is going to solve the problems we’re facing.

The hate Greta Thunberg (@gretathunberg) gets from some grown ups is despicable. I hope she knows there is a horde of us who hold her in high regard. She has unlocked hate in some, but for many others she has given voice to our own concerns and spurred us on to action. The world needed her and thankfully we got her.

Nuke Nature

I’m half Dutch. (Bear with me, I raise this here for a reason.)

The letters of the English word ‘nuke’ can be rearranged to form a Dutch word.

The word is very naughty and not the sort of thing I can write here on a public blog.

Let’s just say there is a brand of clothing that markets itself fcuk. You can work out the rest from there.

Either way, nature is, well … nuked.

Documentally’s 5 Things You Can Do to Cut Single-use Plastics

Documentally said he was working on a post for his newsletter. It contained five suggestions to help people cut back on single-use plastics. I replied that if he sent me the draft, I’d illustrate it. Instead of a simple list, he sent me complete cartoon ideas—all of which were better than I could have come up with.

Here are two of his tips. (The rest, along with the cartoons are at: A quiver of stories [165]. (I think his newsletter is so good, I pay for the additional content.)

1. Use reusable shopping bags

5. Drink wine with a natural cork stopper
