In 2010, Airbus initiated a research collaboration with ENAC and Université de Toulouse III on a prospective study to define and validate an “Aeronautical Font”: the challenge was to improve the display of information on the cockpit screens, in particular in terms of legibility and comfort of reading, and to optimize the overall homogeneity of the cockpit.
A very clear, good-looking font, free to use.
It's a couple of watts per base station antenna, and that's just the peak if there's something to transmit. Same as with 4G right now.
The whole panic about 5G is that there will be more base stations than before, but that actually *lowers* radiation levels. Especially on the device side, the only side people have to care about. But it's easier to concentrate all the hate and stupidity on the tower than on the iPhone in your hand.
I worry that every time someone claims they are helping the environment by making some activity "more efficient", they will ultimately be proven wrong.
More efficient means cheaper, which means we just do more of whatever it is.
Plane travel is the classic example, but there are others.
If we want to curb emissions, we need to add friction in the right places - which literally means making things more expensive and less competitive. That's a very hard sell in today's world.
Understanding environmental impact is hard.
Me and my gas-guzzling mini-van have a much lower impact than most "green car" owners... simply because I drive way, way less than average.
Planes aren't bad for the environment because they burn lots of fuel. Planes are bad for the environment because they are convenient and encourage, enable and create a market for massive amounts of travel.
Switching to advanced, super-clean vehicles won't improve things nearly as much as telecommuting would.

@stettberger OpenTTD, ich glaube da haben Leute mit den Zügen sogar Adierer und Zeug gebaut...
@kaniini regular reminder that discord bans people from using third party clients, it’s even worse than just a proprietary service. using it to host FOSS communities in no circumstance is sane
