- Adani Coal Mine: The World's Most Insane Energy Project Moves Ahead - Rolling Stone:
The biggest myth associated with the Adani mine may be that continuing to mine and export coal is somehow vital to the Australian economy. It is not. As James Bradley points out, although coal accounts for almost 15 per cent of Australia's exports, it contributes less than 1 percent of the Commonwealth government's total revenue. And it's not like the industry creates a lot of jobs, either. In 2018, it employed slightly fewer than 50,000 people. That's less than 0.4 per cent of Australia's total workforce, and, more importantly, it's less that the 65,000 jobs created by tourism at the Great Barrier Reef.Even if you don't believe in climate change, the economics of Adani in particular simply don't add up.

But Mischkowski stresses that we do need to be informed about the ways it affects us, so that we can use our common sense.
- Why American Farmers Are Hacking Their Tractors With Ukrainian Firmware - VICE:
Farmers worry what will happen if John Deere is bought by another company, or what will happen if the company decides to stop servicing its tractors. And so they have taken matters into their own hands by taking control of the software themselves. "What happens in 20 years when there's a new tractor out and John Deere doesn't want to fix these anymore?" the farmer using Ukrainian software told me. "Are we supposed to throw the tractor in the garbage, or what?"
