After reading this article, I thought it will be funny to open my Gmail (spam) and see what treasures I have over there. Oh boy...

Look at these beauties:

Costco has a BIG surprise for you Spam x Congratulations! Reward@5ja.affpartners.com


Congratulations - You Have (1) New Kohl's Reward Ready To Claim! Spam x Kohl's Survey reward@mms.affpartners.com via w7z4p---w7z4p----ap-southeast-2.compute.amazonaws.com


We have a surprise for Starbucks Shoppers 🔥 Spam x Starbucks Reward@wtk.affpartners.com via 946cm---946cm----ap-southeast-2.compute.amazonaws.com

And much moooooore, way moooore. This is absurd. Please don't look for those idiotic websites, for sure they are malicious. I just copy-pasted from my mailbox a few examples. I also have from FedEx, and many more. I don't even live in the US and Costo doesn't exist here. Not to mention the others. All are so wrong. I also have fake security alerts, and lots of congratulations winning prizes. :/

"In 2014, researchers found that alpine goats appeared to be shrinking due to warming temperatures. The same year, another study found salamanders had shrunk rapidly in response to climate change."

This is insane!

There's a picture in the article, with a helicopter with what it looks like a very small quantity of water, ready to fly into the black smoke created by the wildfires... And I'm here, in front of my laptop, reading this comment, and I'm feeling hopeless. I know, as a species we did a lot of good (for selfish reasons or not), but in present times it feels like we are doing too much harm (comparing with the good). And it's no turning back and I feel like crap.

"To save the internet and ourselves, we’ll need to harden and relocate the infrastructure we’ve built, find cleaner ways to power the web, and reimagine how we interact with the digital world."

Easy to say hard to do. We face so many problems right now and we take action so damn slowly. I think we're doomed.
