"A community center initially set up to help coal miners respecialize and find other jobs, now became a place for unofficial 'pilgrimages' of people striving to find their role in life and learn the history from those who lived it."

The "community center" solarpunk writing prompt got illustrated by the awesome Lemonaut ! As always, I'm incredibly impressed with their art.

You can listen to the podcast episode about it at https://podcast.tomasino.org/@SolarpunkPrompts/episodes/the-community-center

I think what the Lemonaut does here is the essence of solarpunk : very intentionally creating new visual and narrative symbols we need to tell stories about our future. No AI could create such a vision.

I love how this one mixes the mundane prospects of looking for a new profession, identity, with the Solarpunk hope.

If you like their work, you can support them at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/thelemonaut and read more of their art, including the (recently trending) Solarpunk Story, at https://www.tumblr.com/the-lemonaut/710271433164668928/thats-why-im-looking-into-solarpunk-and-am

https://cohost.org/roguecache just made a new solarpunk logo; i think it's very well designed and keeps the simplicity while still keeping sun, nature and technology meanings

Oxygenic Photosynthesis ☀️ i.e. how most plants use carbon dioxide, water & sunlight to produce carbohydrates & oxygen.

Another (very quick) take on the caustic soda locomotive concept based on this comment on my last postcard about what a version with swappable boilers might look like.

The idea is that instead of pumping out the caustic soda to dry it, they would instead unbolt and lift off the boiler, probably using an overhead or gantry crane, and replace it with an already-dry one. The dilute one would be inspected, and placed on a concrete containment pad where it could be connected to a solar steam generator, so the superheated steam could dry the caustic soda. This is actually pretty similar to how they apparently did it historically, except using a coal boiler and obviously without removing the boiler from the locomotive.

Ideally, this would be a bit safer as the boiling hot caustic soda would remain contained for the majority of the time, with less risk of spills during the drying process, and the extra boilers and frequent inspections could help prevent corroded parts from disabling a locomotive and stopping a train line. It might even be faster, depending on how complex the hookup process is.

In the end, it’s probably not a whole lot more practical, but I really liked the idea (suggested first by Carrier_Indomitable over on r/trains, and then with some cool visual details by @[email protected] on the last post.
