We need to act now to save our human living. It doesn’t matter that others don’t care, we as individuals need to make sure that we do everything we can to prevent our climate to go over into high-fever state (which is about 10 years away). It upon us to show companies that they need to do something (economical success is entirely based on what people buy). It’s our choice to tell our friends, family members, or colleagues about climate change and we should use the chance to gather more people. Only if we stand together, we can achieve this big goal.

But if we do, not only the climate will profit. As we’d have to change our entire current society system, success will also mean better health, more equality, more happiness and less suffer, less wars for all of us. Ensure we will be able to live a nice, happy life by keeping the climate as it was a few decades ago (or as it is now, which would be still “okay”). Ensure that our children can live on this planet—why else would you have taken all the effort, all the love, all the stress to give birth, to raise them, to earn money for them?

“We must change nearly everything in our society”, says Greta Thunberg in her public speech at World Economic Forum 2019 in Davos.

Start by choosing a hosting service that uses green energy. Fly less, use a train, embrace remote culture, grow your own food, turn off your phone more often and find love and happiness by reflecting on yourself, what you experienced today, what makes you happy and let your mind wander.

It’s a risk and usually I don’t promote country-based stuff but for those of you who live in Bavaria, Germany: Please go into your town hall with your ID and sign this petition to save our wildlife. It’s little effort but could make a huge difference for all of us.

Now, let’s go to the web development resources I found this week which contain some very nice updates for the web platform, and strategies for maintaining and building better JavaScript codebases.
