And almost half of respondents back the filing of criminal charges against oil companies that have contributed to the climate crisis

As US communities take big oil to court for allegedly deceiving the public about the climate crisis, polling shared with the Guardian shows that a majority of voters support the litigation, while almost half would back an even more aggressive legal strategy of filing criminal charges.

The poll, which comes as the world’s first-ever criminal climate lawsuit was brought in France last week, could shed light on how, if filed, similar US cases might ruled by a jury.

The 40 existing US lawsuits against major oil companies, filed by cities and states, are based on civil charges such as tort law and racketeering protections. But last year, the consumer advocacy non-profit Public Citizen proposed also filing criminal charges – most notably, homicide – against the companies.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Alexander De Croo sign new security pact.

Ukraine and Belgium have signed a security agreement which includes the delivery of 30 U.S.-made F-16 fighter jets, in a move to bolster Kyiv's defense capabilities against Russian President Vladimir Putin's ongoing invasion. 

Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo agreed on a plan that “includes at least €977 million in Belgian military aid to Ukraine this year,” the Ukranian  president announced Tuesday, during a visit to Belgium.

De Croo had already announced last year that Belgium would send F-16s to Ukraine in 2025 — without saying how many. Crucially, he also said at the time that the main condition would be whether the next government also agrees to do so, as Belgium is headed toward an election in June.

Reflecting on two decades of blogging evolution

Children have picked ingredients used by suppliers to two major beauty companies, the BBC can reveal.

A BBC investigation into last summer's perfume supply chains found jasmine used by Lancôme and Aerin Beauty's suppliers was picked by minors. 

All the luxury perfume brands claim to have zero tolerance on child labour. 

L'Oréal, Lancôme's owner, said it was committed to respecting human rights. Estée Lauder, Aerin Beauty's owner, said it had contacted its suppliers. 

The jasmine used in Lancôme Idôle L'Intense - and Ikat Jasmine and Limone Di Sicilia for Aerin Beauty - comes from Egypt, which produces about half the world's supply of jasmine flowers - a key perfume ingredient.

Industry insiders told us the handful of companies that own many luxury brands are squeezing budgets, resulting in very low pay. Egyptian jasmine pickers say this forces them to involve their children.

So, I'm sure some of you know. If configured, you can use a backing device for Zram for scenarios where Zram can't compress the data, e.g. when it's full. For this you can use pretty much any supported partition format, including btrfs, what I realized is that you can used btrfs disk compression on top of that. Question is, is this a good idea? 😅 I imagine you'd want to use LZO-RLE or Zstd.
I'm really deep down the Zram rabbit hole, and I've been thinking about all kinds of scenarios.
Maybe a few of you are interested in joining me down this rabbit hole and can share some of your own experiments.

This is a Federated Lemmy instance that focuses on West Virginia and other topics of interest. Members are allowed and encouraged to create and grow communities.

Montani Semper Liberi

Please be good to each other.

Getting Started

Explore the communities already loaded into this instance. If you don't see what you like, try searching for a community in the Lemmy Community Browser. Once you find something that interests you, copy/paste the community link into the Search page, wait for it to pull in, and then subscribe.

Instance Rules

Unless otherwise stated, these rules apply to both local accounts and those interacting from federated instances.

#0 Don't Be a BuzzkillWe run reports and can detect mass downvoters, both local and federated, and we do ban them. If everything here displeases you, then maybe go be miserable somewhere else.

People enjoy different things, and this instance is subscribed to a variety of topics. If you don't like something, move on, block the user/community, or subscribe to things you DO like - don't browse "all" just to jump in the comments to shit all over others.

#1 Be CivilYou should absolutely not consider this community a "bastion of free speech" in any way, shape or form. Please read our Free Speech Policy for further details.

Be here because you want to be here. This is not a refuge for people who have been banned from other social sites. If you're here because you've been banned elsewhere, you'll definitely get banned here too - probably faster.

There is a zero tolerance policy in place for hate speech, bigotry, racism, sexism, homo/trans-phobia, and any other uncivil behavior.

Usernames/display names containing racist or any other inappropriate slurs will not be approved, and any interacting from remote instances will be banned without warning.

Definitions of Free Speech:

  • Free speech: Done in good faith. "I can speak my mind without fear of being arrested"
  • "Freeze peach": Done in bad faith. "I can say the worst things imaginable without consequences because 'free speech, y'all'"

We try our best to respect the right to free expression (within the bounds of civility), but "freeze peach" will not be tolerated.

#2 Bot PolicyAfter running Lemmy for a few months and observing the various bots that have sprung up and how chatty and annoying they are, the DubVee bot policy has been updated. In short, no bots are allowed unless explicitly approved in advance by a site administrator.

Approved bots must flag themselves as a bot and must have their operator's contact info in their bio. Any/all unauthorized bots or bots that do not identify themselves and their operator will receive a permanent ban; no exceptions. Bots interacting from remote instances will be banned as well if they are annoying.

If you encounter an annoying bot, please report it for evaluation.

#3 ChatGPT and AI-Generated ContentI do not care what you asked ChatGPT or asked an "AI" to generate for you, and I will not waste resources on my systems hosting it. AI generated drivel will be removed with prejudice and repeat offenders banned.

#4 NSFW and Controversial ContentIn short: Try to keep posts and comments rated R at most, preferably PG-13 or lower.

I don't give a fuck about language; just don't be an asshole. It's also encouraged to be creative with your profanity if you choose to swear. If in doubt, look to the Scots for inspiration.

Pornography is strictly prohibited. Any content posted that is deemed pornographic will be removed and the account banned.

#5 No Advertising/Self-PromotionAccounts are prohibited from advertising products or services. There's a big difference between posting about a cool project you've been working on/found and shilling for a product/company that will be enforced on a know-it-when-I-see-it basis.

#6 Mis-/Disinformation PolicyPosts should not deliberately contain or spread disinformation / misinformation. Posts / comments determined to fit that criteria will be removed. This includes any and all posts from sources MBFC deems low credibility regardless of community, blogs presented as news, or any other non-news source presented as a news article.

2023/01/31 Update: All links to news articles must be to the original source. Link shorteners, archive links, etc are prohibited. If you wish to provide such a link, it must be added as an addendum to the post in the body. The post's URL must be to the original source. This will be enforced for both posts to local communities as well as posts from federated ones.

There will be absolutely no exceptions. to this rule.

#7 Agendas, Astroturfing, and BrigadingWe do not allow users to push agendas outside of dedicated communities; that's not what we're here for. This is a little difficult to codify, but basically if you want to push a stance on something, keep it to a community dedicated to that topic. Local users are free to create and grow a community for this purpose as long as it adheres to the DubVee instance rules.

For example, if you don't like cars, keep your anti-car sentiment to appropriate communities such as /c/fuckcars rather than dredging up every anti-car post you can find and spreading those across news and other communities. Similarly, don't jump into the comments of unrelated communities to push your anti-car stance.

This rule sounds more draconian than it is, but the purpose of it is to discourage brigading and keep communities civil.

Accounts should not engage in astroturfing or sock-puppeting.
