Let’s talk #VaccineLiability. There’s a vaccine court that has a lower evidentiary bar than any civil court in the US. If a plaintiff fails there, he can STILL sue in civil court afterward. Our system does protect families. #VaccinesSaveLives
Let’s talk #VAERS. It’s an important database in which anyone can voluntarily report any effect of a vaccine: injection site soreness,fever,fussiness,redness. I’ve reported. So when #ProPlague #Antivaxxers quote numbers, just ask for the breakdown of VAERs reports.#VaccinesWork
The #VAERS system helps monitor concerning symptoms that could start to appear (eg, ⬆️’d soreness or fever with a specific batch of vaccines). It helped identify concerns w/rotavirus so it could undergo rigorous safety testing. It’s a great 1st step in safety.#VaccineMonitoring

Leader McConnell & the GOP won’t admit that climate change is real and caused by humans. They only want a show vote, as opposed to the numerous pieces of actual legislation that I’ve pressed for to address this very real crisis.
Trumpism’s #AntiScience know-nothingism is denying the reality of climate change, and the effects are being felt across the nation in the form of extreme weather, changing harvests and other effects that will only get worse.
In #Vermont, climate change affects everything from pancakes to pistes, making our ski and sugaring seasons unpredictable and hurting vital Vermont industries. Read about how it impacts the maple industry here: civileats.com/2018/05/02/wha…

The ancient Incan terraces at Moray, Peru, represent a visually stunning reminder of human ingenuity and capability.

But @Microsoft is now encouraging you to think these terraces might have been built by #AncientAliems or Romans. Let’s talk about why that’s a problem! 1/6
This was brought to my attention by @ArchaeoJapan, who shows us that in a Screenshot @Windows asks users if this structure is an ancient Roman amphitheater or maybe a UFO landing pad.

They’re just asking, right? No harm, right?

Hmm... 2/6

The problem is that for centuries Westerners argued the ancient structures of the Americas couldn’t have been built by the continents’ indigenous people. Instead earlier European visitors must have built them.

This idea was not based in evidence, but rather simple prejudice. 3/6
