Less than an hour ago, someone on here [posted a story]( from the Guardian titled “Bitcoin miners revived a dying coal plant – then CO2 emissions soared”. It’s an interesting story, you should read it. Factual, well-informed reporting, as most articles are in the Guardian. Honestly, that article is more informative and interesting than 99% of the articles that usually get posted.
However: it highlights a negative aspect of crypto, or more specifically PoW/ Bitcoin, and shows that this “they exclusively use renewable energies, BTC is good for the environment!!” narrative is, of course, not true. For that reason, it received negative karma, with the first comments being stuff like “Typical crap to come out of the guardian” and just “Ffs”.
At the same time, [a post re-warming a dodgy survey from 2 months ago]( that was already posted 1000 times back then but is “bullish” for crypto gets 90% upvotes and voted to “hot” and nobody questions whether those numbers are true.
Come on guys. You can do better.
