Only 1-4% of tallgrass prairie still exists. Prairies are critically important, not only for the unique biodiversity they possess, but for their effect on climate. The ability to store carbon is a valuable ecological service in today’s changing climate. Carbon, which is emitted both naturally and by human activities such as burning coal to create electricity, is a greenhouse gas that is increasing in the Earth’s atmosphere. Reports from the International Panel on Climate Change, a group of more than 2,000 climate scientists from around the world, agree that increased greenhouse gases are causing climate change, which is leading to sea level rise, higher temperatures, and altered rain patterns. Most of the prairie’s carbon sequestration happens below ground, where prairie roots can dig into the soil to depths up to 15 feet and more. Prairies can store much more carbon below ground than a forest can store above ground. In fact, the prairie was once the largest carbon sink in the world-much bigger than the Amazon rainforest-and its destruction has had devastating effects. [source] I just have to add–that extensive root system? It’s not just how the plant eats, and how it keeps itself from getting pulled out of the ground during storms, or dying when its aboveground portion is eaten… it’s how it talks to its friends and family, how it shares food with its friends and family, and more than likely, how it thinks. That’s a whole plant brain we’ve domesticated away, leaving a helpless organism that has trouble figuring out when it’s under attack by pests, what to do about it, has very little in the way of chemical defense so it can do something about it, and can’t even warn its neighbors. Even apart from the ecological concerns, what we’ve done is honestly pretty cruel.

 Storytelling Tropes are (the way most films do).... but instead to talk about how
 valuable these stories can be. Like Sam's Speech at the end of the Two Towers
 the greatest stories are ones that give you something to believe in, give you
 hope, that help you see there are things in a bleak violent world that are worth
 living for

You just don’t want them to make a liveable wage and have healthcare and be treated like proper human beings.  

ultimately the people at the top want to replace them with machines. factory jobs have been lost to automation as well as companies moving abroad. they’re trying to get rid of truck drivers and other people who drive people/goods around. they want to replace employees at McDonalds.
 there’s serious articles about it and also “cute” articles about delivery robots and I think: that’s a working class job gone. one that was already fucking pathetic bc of how unfairly people who drive delivery are treated. but soon (within 5-10 years?) those jobs will just be gone. and idk what people are supposed to do at that point… just be “polite” and shuffle off and die in a corner somewhere because there’s simply not enough higher status/paying jobs to go around and they never had the educational or other opportunities to even compete for those jobs anyway?
i suppose plumbers and electricians and some forms of maintenance will be necessary for a few decades until AI can think as creatively as humans
but at some point we have to decide whether human lives have inherent worth apart from their worth under capitalism. and we, in the US, do not currently live in a society that believes they do.
