I watched Dan Olson's video documenting a passive income scam and the economics of ghost writing. Its very good, there were two sections in particular that I had to pause and steel myself for as they trod on some touchy ground.
My blog expands on the freelance economy and has links to the video if you've not seen it yet. I recommend the full video

@Reddebrek If anyone knows a North American (Ontario, specifically) equivalent to Bee Bombs, I am ALL EARS. I have had a hard time with trying to get seeds for native pollinator-friendly plants around here!

@Reddebrek every morning i have breakfast on our balcony, which is under a tree

every fucking morning i have to wear a hoodie bc its cold

every morning i think i'll need a jacket

and then i go outside (away from the shade of the tree) and it's way too hot

Also an anecdote, I am very sensitive to heat and sunlight, but the house I grew up in had a giant apple tree that effectively covered half the back garden. I used to spend my days under it and drink the juice from the apples it provided.

With Europe melting away under unprecedented heat, one of the best ways to lower tempretures and protect soil and foliage from dry out is by planting trees and other plants and restoring forests and meadows. There are a few ways to do this, community gardening groups are becoming more popular, there's also a service called Bee Bombs that sells seeds to turn private gardens into wild flower patches for bees. And the ecosia search engine uses ad revenue to fund tree planting 150million+ so far.
