I was told offlist that (seems) you were refering to Greta Thunberg.
I suppose she would blame us all, because we are using cryptographic
hash functions for the things where simpler, cheaper and faster
specialized integrity check/error detection specialized functions
could be used instead. Although something like BLAKE3 is still
considered cryptographically secure, its single thread is 12 times
faster than SHA256 and scales virtually to any number of threads
(uses Merkle tree out of box).
