we're having a very warm autumn, following a pretty warm summer.

sept was a record breaker:

dublin airport heading for 1.7C above its long term average for october.

climate has already changed.

Tangentially related, but this looks interesting. App that notifies you of cafes etc who'll sell you end of the day food for cheap, rather than dump it. Not that many Dublin places in it yet, so might just be lots of stale Danish's from Applegreen, but has potential.

pete quote tweeted this. it's laughable how utterly wrong the graph is - they've calculated the carbon footprint of CDs and LPs based on how much carbon is in each disc.

also, it seems you can listen to CDs and LPs without any further carbon contribution.
rough guesstimate, if your turntable and amp use 50W, by the time you have reached the mentioned 20 hours, you add 1kWh of electricity to the calculation.

You don't have to count the amp on the basis that that would be part of all methods of listening though - it'd just be the turntable itself

the article mentions all of this though.


This is all carbon footprint garbage anyway, divide and conquer PR coming from the oil industry that should be ignored.

Depends on who mastered the CO2 at the end of the day. If we perhaps all only listened to Ed Sheeran and no one else we could make the music delivery system very efficient.
