In This Edition:
Google greenwashes aircraft emissions, waveline magnet energy generator, David McWilliams on Michael Collins, make your own outdoor gear, & play arcade games in your browser!

For the first time ever, I've read the book before the TV show/movie!  That book is Paper Girls and is a brilliant graphic novel. Paper Girls on Amazon Prime is superb and is doing the book justice.

Google Greenwashes Aircraft Emissions

As reported by the BBC, Google have updated their Google flights emissions calculations to exclude all the global warming impacts of flying except CO2. This removes almost half of the emissions generated actually generated from aviation. Failing to measure & display these additional missions effectively amounts to greenwashing, and is the opposite of what is needed during a climate emergency :-(
