I wish getting started with #gardening wasn't so complicated. I just want to plant tiny plants and have a little collection on my shelf but there's just too much information to take in.

Why can't I just throw in some seeds in a pot and water it regularly? I remember growing some fenugreek saplings like this back in 3rd grade.

Is it a side-effect of being an adult that I feel I must do it right? Can't I just playyyyyy

⦿ Canada’s 2023 wildfires burned an area nearly the size of Ireland, releasing emissions equivalent to four times the global aviation sector.

⦿ Climate change creates longer, more severe fire seasons, leading to a dangerous feedback loop of increasing emissions.

⦿ Canada’s emissions accounting method excludes wildfire emissions from their U.N. reports, a practice questioned by some experts.

The big, pathway-determining climate decisions will be made by politicians in Jakarta, by public utility officials in #SãoPaulo, by oil company executives in #Dubai, and, most of all, by cabinet ministers in #NewDelhi and Politburo members in #Beijing. People that we have near-zero leverage over.
