Coated Emissions, a Darker Future for NFTs? 🏭

In June 1988 a NASA scientist, Dr. James Hansen, appeared on a very hot day in Washington and told a group of powerful senators that a grim future lay ahead. Carbon emissions, he said, had raised average global temperatures to the highest levels in recorded human history, bringing heat waves, droughts and other disruptions to people’s lives. 

That same year a collection of scientists assembled by the United Nations — known as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change — delivered much the same message, warning pointedly of rising seas and threats to biodiversity. Four years later, world leaders meeting in Rio de Janeiro signed a landmark agreement to stabilize “greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.”

A clean order we find in nature. Besides traffic and industrial pollution, beauty and intelligence abide in our world. We have to defend this ambient from elements of distortion. I was first enthusiastic when told about NFTs, further publishing a post and inviting people. But when getting to know its environmental effects, I turned to other ways of income. Damaging the environment is a serious issue to me. I prefer to do sacrifices in order to leave a working planet to our babies and toddlers. So I did further research (in my laptop, I am blessed with many confort and can also chose between ways of income).

Ethereum and Bitcoin are computer-ecosystems that use the Proof of Work algorithm, turning them to be inefficient. They produce large carbon emissions, which can harm the environment. And we only have one Earth, so we better take care of it. Fortunately scientists have come with happy alternatives: there are different blockchains like Polkadot and Polygon to register our NFTs. Among these, I prefer Algorand, which uses a Pure Proof of Stake algorithm, and which will be adopted by El Salvador government. These are examples of my digital art, I have listed at as @jampaintings:

Toddlers Spread Virus More Easily Than Teens 👦🏻

A study published in the journal JAMA Pediatric, demonstrates that very young children also participate in the contagious chain. Actually they result more dangerous than teenagers.

The number of communication with different people is much greater in toddlers than in babies. Toddlers can walk to places, grabbing objects that could be infected. Toddlers can talk to strangers, having too much more contact with other people.

As I was thinking yesterday, we may babies when compared to god. It is a beautiful age when they can freely walk through the garden. We may prowl around the house of God, which will be the world; first by crawling, like babies, then walking as toddlers. God’s mansion is a titanic Eden, with immense amounts of species, each one with different colors and behaviors. Some animals can walk (in 4 paws), others swim, or even fly. Each one with different strategies for feeding, hunting, resting, and so on. These fresh variety turns our minds to the Creator.

We can find immense variety in many things. For example in transportation. We use to move in cars. There is also a public service like buses and subways. For long distances there are airplanes. To exercise we walk, or jump to a bicycle. And there are more rare options like boats. yachts , submarines, motorcycles, one wheel self balancing scooters, skateboards, paragliders, skies, kayaks, surf tables, cable cars, (not bumper cars hahaha). Disabled ones can use chair wheels or prothesis depending the case. Thanks God for a great Universe!

Pandemic Isolation 🦠

Isolation can be a dangerous couch to sit, specially in these closed pandemics. There’s a phrase the military call ‘going inside,’ it means getting inside your own head. “Sometimes, when you’re in isolation, you go inside and you kind of get lost in your own thoughts, without the forced interaction.”, this could happen to normal people, and also to bloggers or internet users who keep in touch with cybernetics.
Being concealed turned out to be the punishment criminals get in jail. Their landscapes are reduced to three walls, and their friends to the same repeated company, day after day. They cannot go out, anytime, anywhere, unlike free birds🐤
I prefer the blue shade of liberty. There are many other benefits, in my HO (read my unrelated post “the best side of the cake”). However not everybody agrees on this. To my surprise, some prefer free food and not working, than the usual citizen obligations. Have a nice day and a glass of water. I get 30% commission

Dangerous marabouts? 👩🏻‍🎓

Not all marabouts are dangerous. They use to be individuals who teach religious themes. We are talking about Quran here (at homeschools called daara’s). Kids should feel thankful for those marabouts that provide food, ceiling and teachings. Many of them do decent jobs, but some preasure kids to contribute to house’s income. Wikipedia call them child beggars, and there are around 50,000-10,000 in Senegal (a 16 million populated country).

They carry rice and sugar in small containers without a lid. Could they earn enough by selling?

I saw a room where they use to sleep. Lacking of beds and mattress, seemed austere to my western customs. The kids asked him if he had a pair of shoes to give away and he gave some food, so as to not give money (wich will end at marabouts hands).

It should be hot to be laboring under the African Sun. I remember this sun-phenomena we witnessed years ago… “Look at the sun” people start yelling while pointing there. The sun appeared “jumping” from one spot to the other, as in a diffuse vision. I painted a character inspired by this experience (“The Sundance”, as it is called in Bosnia Herzegovina). These experiences –and some thinking– resulted in my conversion to Catholicism:

Even when the sun bumps, sometimes fantasies are preferred than realities (like in this unicorn fantasy). This may be the optional escenario, to either live a different dream, or to not live at all. I hope situations like this change in the future: writing about it is just a first step.
