From Hackers Against Climate Change

HACC Group: Representation, Collaboration, Data, Media

This is the pad for the group "Representation, Collaboration, Data, Media" I left out workflow because it is a more general, administrative topic. If someone wants to add that topic, don't hesitate.

First: I think we should to find a better and shorter name for this group! Argument collection for naming discussion: https://pad.totalism.org/p/hacc-naming-discussion

The last version of our discussion can be found here: https://pad.totalism.org/p/hacc-2

Here are some proposals that were made during the last discussion and some additional ideas

Possible target audience:

   people that are affected by actions of HACC (e.g. visitors of future CCC events)
   deniers and sceptics
   pupils, teachers, students ("Chaos macht Schule"???)
   general public
   hackers
   media/journalists (classic media: tv, newspapers and/or "new" media, youtube channels or blogs, HACC as a service)
   scientists (some form of collaboration, HACCaaS)
   Works in both directions:
   Hackers to scientists: like luftdaten.info
   Scientists to hackers for PR work, visualization and so on...
   politicians
   members of the green and sustainable movement
   https://bits-und-baeume.org/


Topics:

   Explain basics of climate change
   Show how CO2 works as a heat trap with experiments
   Is it possible to show that certain CO2 is men made with simple experiments??? How to show isotopes of molecules and atoms with simple experiments???
   Show the current status in science
   Show the current status in politics
   Show the current status of development for replacing CO2 emitting systems and tools with non emitting ones
   Discuss pros and cons
   renewable energy
   wind ernergy systems
   the grid - electricity map (https://www.electricitymap.org )
   Connect well known and accepted knowledge and scientific facts to disputed climate change facts
   Tell positive naratives about what a change of behavior or energy sources can do
   Show and promote projects and topics concering the environment, clean air and so on...
   luftdaten.info

   ???
   Find a common ground with sceptics ???
   Decentralized and local renewable energy is something nationalists would want to be more independent of the world
   Conserving the environment will find some or even a lot of support in conservative/religious groups
   With "Laudato Si" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laudato_si%27 ) we have the catholic church on our side
   It's true, further development on storage and control systems are necessary during the next years
   Also if climate change would only be a chinese hoax, fossil fuels are finite ressources 


Milestones

CCC events (congress, camp) Present results at assembly and/or talks:

   multiple video projectors
   animations and visualizations
   show experiments live or as a recording
   have factsheets or handouts
   create memes
   sticker


HACCaaS:

   Running a collaboration network/platform


Needed Activities:

   Collect typical arguments of
   sceptics and deniers
   people who are convinced that it's too late to act
   people who are convinced that the society won't change and we are doomed
   Develop or collect experiments
   Develop or collect visualizations
   Collect sources of information
   IPCC
   search the net
   different projects
   read scientific articles/papers
   Collaborate with scientists, journalists
   HACC as a Service
   Establish workflows, tools and infrastructure
   memex was mentioned https://worldbrain.io/
   stackoverflow was mentioned
   https://earthscience.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/climate-change is good but should be in different languages

   Biotechnology

   NCBI is mostly for biomedical and biotechnological data; however, some of the datasets in the SRA (Sequence Read Archive - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra) are ecological in nature, meaning that they contain DNA/RNA data gathered from habitats. However, it is some work to find out which datasets are helpful for us
