“Why should universities step in to help scientists displaced by war?”

When war strikes, scientists are especially hard hit. They can lose their focus, funding, and even their lab space to destruction. To make sure that the progress of science goes on, universities should step in to support researchers’ loss. This is Why Universities Should Step in to Help Scientists Displaced by War.

Why Applying No Controls to Twitter Would Be Catastrophic for the Climate

04/14/22

“Why would applying no controls to Twitter be catastrophic for the climate?”

A certain billionaire is (as of writing) thinking about purchasing Twitter and stopping all controls and filters. While this is being marketed as making the website a haven of free speech, it would actually let authoritarian governments and movements take over information flow and lead to mass political manipulation. This will lead to more authoritarian governments taking power and pushing unsustainable policies, which in turn will lead to increased climate emissions and global catastrophe. This is Why Applying No Controls to Twitter Would Be Catastrophic for the Climate.

“Why should governments pursue bicycle education classes in schools?”

Many people are scared of riding a bicycle because they never received the proper education. This prevents people from switching to more urbanism-focused transportation methods, leading to higher death rates and environmental pollution from car use. However, if governments teach students how to ride bikes in schools, then this can be avoided and people can live much safer and more enjoyable lives. This is Why Governments Should Pursue Bicycle Education Classes in Schools

“How can social media document genocides?”

Genocides are one of the most brutal atrocities that humans can unleash. However, with the advent of social media, we can now document them in real-time as seen in Syria and Ukraine, and spread the word to the world. This will drum up support for intervention and potentially stop it. This is How Social Media Can Document Genocides.

Women-Centric Climate Finance

“Why do we need to have woman-centric climate finance?”

Climate change is going to exacerbate the existing sexist world order. Women will be expected to take care of children during disasters, will be stripped of work during economic downturns first, and will be deprived of leadership opportunities by the patriarchy. To remedy this, we must develop Women-Centric Climate Finance that funds work by women for women.

Divesting from Governments and Organizations That Engage in Climate Change Denialism

“Why should we think about divesting from governments and organizations that engage in climate denialism?”

Climate denialism is rampant in society. Even worse, some governments and organizations promote this harmful falsehood. Since engaging with these parties is unethical, one way to pressure them to change course is to engage in boycotts. Eventually, enough social and economic damage will be done so they have to yield. This is why Divesting From Governments and Organizations That Engage in Climate Change Denialism works.

Why Practicing Rescuing People From Collapsed Buildings is Good Preparation for Both Climate Change and War

“Why is rescuing people from collapsed buildings good preparation for both climate change and war?”

When buildings collapse, people may become stuck underneath. These people will need to be rescued by special teams. Since buildings are more likely to collapse with the advent of climate change and in wartime, practicing these techniques is great preparation. This will be especially important as climate change holds the potential to exacerbate conditions for open conflict. This is Why Practicing Rescuing People From Collapsed Buildings is Good Preparation for Both Climate Change and War.
