Possibly. I would expect it to be very difficult to build a legitimate, independent and just institution for that. There is a reason we have checks and balances in government.

Same with my comment. :-/ Maybe the downvoters want to point out the risk of this turning into some denunciation/witchhunting/revolution eating her own children/cancel culture scenario. I'm worried about these dangers too (which is why I mentioned autoimmune disorders), but didn't want to turn my comment into an essay exploring pros and cons and risks and benefits and negative attractor states and ways to avoid them.

Of course, I would appreciate some explanation from the downvoters. My policy is to only downvote if I also take the time to comment.

Like ProgramCrafter I neither downvoted nor upvoted your comment.

Thank you for doing this investigation! It must have been a strenuous undertaking in terms of time, thought and emotion.

It would be good to have some sort of community immune system, as you call it, (although one would have to be wary of autoimmune disorders) but it's very understandable not to want to do that part-time. I started an investigation much smaller than yours last year, but gave up eventually because it was too much work in addition to my job and other things I want to do in my life. (Although a bit of sleuthing is fun, too. My investigation didn't involve the personal safety/public interest dilemmas that yours did.)

Added 2023-09-17: After skimming the comments and seeing the down- and disagreement votes, I have to note: While it would be nice to have a working immune system (or just more investigations as circumspect and comprehensive as Ben's), attempting to build it would be even riskier and more difficult than I had thought. Probably near-impossible.

The Manager Tools Interview Series would teach you everything you need to know about putting together a résumé, answering behavioural questions etc.: https://www.manager-tools.com/products/interview-series I used it for my last job search and it worked very well. Their guidance is based on a lot of data and experience, also on the other side (the one doing the hiring).

For those who wonder how to edit and structure the content after you've autocompleted your way to completion, I suggest The Minto Pyramid Principle by Barbara Minto (available eg. here: https://archive.org/details/mintopyramidprin00mint).

Short answer, if you want to try a psychological approach (hopefully you will get better before you've tried all of this):

  1. Read my article carefully several times. If something is unclear, you can ask questions in the comments or send me a private message.
  2. Read John E. Sarno's The Mindbody Prescription.
  3. Learn cognitive-behavioural (self-)therapy.

There are several options for cognitive-behavioural therapy, from cheap to expensive.

Meditation can be helpful if you want to improve awareness of body and thoughts. But it's a wide field and there are risks.

Whenever you try an intervention, pay attention to whether it makes you feel less stressed and more relaxed, and whether your wrists feel better.

One physical intervention, just in case: Do you type a lot? If yes, have you tried different keyboards? Most keyboards are fine for most people, so I don't think you need a super expensive super ergonomic one. But some keyboards give even me trouble and it's worth ruling that out. Go to an electronics shop and try the keyboards there. Does typing feel better than with your normal keyboard? If you don't have an electronics shop available, the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard is a safe bet. It's around 60 USD.

Note that I'm neither a doctor nor a therapist. All the above is based on my personal experience or what I've heard.

Yeah, 24 h variability is what I meant. Producing hydrogen or methane for longer-term storage sounds interesting.

Thanks for your counter-arguments! I've added them to my notes.

Thanks for your counter-counterpoints. I've added them to my notes.

Re. smart grids: Of course they don't produce energy themselves. We would need the capacity to produce enough during winter. But they address the problem of supply variability. And the energy grid modelers at my friend's company have found that they can address it sufficiently.
