Alexandria Villaseñor is a heroine. And she is only 13. Villaseñor is nearly 20 weeks into her own strike. Instead of going to school on Fridays, she protests outside U.N. headquarters in New York City, almost always alone and often in the rain and cold.

A parallel. In 1993, Hillary chaired a task force to devise a healthcare plan so every American would be covered. It took till 2010 for Obama to get the #ACA (which is STILL under attack.)17 yrs. AOC introduces the #GreenNewDeal with URGENCY. We only have 12 yrs. says the UN.
This time around, the planet is at stake. Climate change is the greatest existential threat to life as we know it. It’s already here. We don’t have time to waste. Emissions must be cut in half. This comprehensive re-shaping of economic & social justice tied to the environment
is as broad-thinking as Hillary’s idea for healthcare. When you are a woman with power who takes your role to serve seriously, you come up with these bold, sweeping, societal changes for the good of all. Props to .@AOC for risking it, so her generation & my grandkids can breathe.

💥Old thread re: Matt Gaetz that was broken several times, deserves a read tonight.

Escapades in #Florida...

💥One ex-opponent of Gaetz asserts: "...the people I've met either don't care for Matt Gaetz or are fearful of Matt (his father, former State Senator) and Don Gaetz."
💥Matt Gaetz was arrested in Okaloosa County in 2008 with reasonable suspicion. He refused the breathalyzer.

🌴In Florida, this is usually a mandatory license suspension. Instead, arresting officer Okaloosa County Deputy Chris Anglin resigned. 1/…
💥The charges were dropped.

Woke up about a 2hrs plus ago. I need to drop this tweet, lest I forget. This tweet is a 10 step process if you will, on how to avoid infights.

We've seen it's a particular group of people that are causing all these MAJOR infights. Shall we begin then 😊 👇*RESPECT my TL.*
1. (There's always two sides)

There's 2 sides to a book, in rare case more 😉 if you see two Resisters fighting, regardless the number of follows they command don't ever get involved. Ignore them if you will or mute them if it continues, you're here to Resist & that is all.
2. (Screenshots are not always what they seem to be)

Similar to number 1. SS may appear to portray one person as a very deceitful individual. We all know in a "fit of rage" we tend to say hurtful things that might be detrimental to our cause. Avoid getting angry at all cost.

Here is my message to @billshortenmp odds are that you will be the next PM of Australia 🇦🇺 post the next Federal Election. I ask you to focus on the following concerns:
1. #ClimateChangeIsReal we need to treat this as a national emergency. If strategies are not put in place ...
... now then what kind of environment will be the “norm” for your children and grandchildren?
2. Stagnating wage and poor employment conditions for those not earning the “average” wage in Australia. Restoration of penalty rates. We need wage growth. Fairness surrounding .......
... taxation of the rich. I agree with your #FrankingCredits policy and ask you to investigate the #negativegearing corporate welfare provided to those that have multiple investment properties. I am not saying get rid of it altogether but there again needs to be fairness.........

This is the Council for National Policy organization - the group behind Trump/Pence, etc. - re Trump's first 100 days: U.S. border, cyber, & military policies starting with the US/Mex border (4:30)."…

The Council for National Policy (#CNP) is an umbrella organization & networking group for social conservative activists in the United States.The Nation has called it a secretive organization. It connects wealthy right-wing donors w/ top conservatives.…
Here's what the #CNP has planned for education in the United States. With the Heritage Foundation's support, of course.

🌎After years of deleterious moves to outright harm the environment, why did Rick Scott take action and on July 9th and declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of blue-green algae blooms? 3 Reasons. Money, politics & urgency/necessity.…
👉These 7 counties were affected by the blue-green algae blooms: Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Okeechobee.
⁉️And then on August 13, 2018, why did Rick Scott declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of “red tide” in the following counties: Charlotte, Collier, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota? (Lucky Lee County! Red + Green = Grey—Brown)…

💥Steve King U.S. Congress IA-04 (please vote for J.D. Scholten @Scholten4Iowa) is a quadruple threat at the very least on some of the most prominent issues of the 2018 Election.

1⃣▶️He’s a racist, intensifying the pervasive polarization in the country…
2⃣▶️Steve King has voted for every repeal or bill to chip away at the Affordable Care Act

3⃣▶️He voted for the #GOPTaxScam, a series of tax breaks for corporations & wealthy passed by Republicans, now used as the excusing for cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid
4⃣▶️King is backed by Charles Koch, who has been funding a hybrid of Republican/Libertarian/"eccentric" billionaire causes & politicians for decades in order to promote his agenda: mainly to abolish EPA/all environmental regulations, bust employee unions & ease corporate taxes.

🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.

@KMidterms @AguilarCampaign @clcv You’ve been lied to. Tax is $0.30/gal, up 18 cents from before. Gas was ~$3/gal before Trump. Now it’s > $4/gal. You’re decrying an 18 cent/gal increase while conveniently ignoring the > $0.80/gal increase Trump’s policies have caused?

Glad we talked.…
@KMidterms @AguilarCampaign @clcv In addition, that tax goes to road repair. Every $1 spent on road work saves $5 in auto repair. After replacing the front end of my car for $700, I was in favor of the increase.
@KMidterms @AguilarCampaign @clcv Per the debate, Flynn agrees with this tweet, though not in terms of policy. But we’ve seen what “market-based” solutions caused in 2008. Banks were allowed to crash the economy. Regulation alone brought us back from the Great Recession. #ClimateChangeIsReal. We need to face it.

⁉️Could this make climate change deniers believe that #ClimateChangeIsReal?

🍻I wonder what percentage of climate change deniers are beer drinkers?

🌽Anyway, barley is sensitive to drought & heat ▶️lead to barley shortage. Wheat, corn, barley & hops?…

🚫Not while Trump is still "president."

👨‍🔬👩‍🔬Where are the scientists? Not the ones with the "big political agenda" though!!!
⁉️Does anyone else see the similarity between these two lines of thinking?
Trump: “I think something’s happening. Something’s changing & it’ll change back again. I don’t think it’s a hoax, I think there’s probably a difference. But I don’t know that it’s manmade." And...👇

So many thoughts. All of which I’ve withheld today because: I was overwhelmed with emotion and try not to speak publicly in that state of anxiety.
The IPCC report is legit terrifying but not all that surprising. The fact that it’s not surprising is concerning in and of itself.
We have roughly 12 years to turn this around - it’s incredibly unlikely we’ll do so.

💥We have an unindicted co-conspirator in the White House.

Hier en parcourant le TT #RechauffementClimatique, on est tombé sur plusieurs tweets émanant de climatosceptiques qui utilisent l'histoire médiévale pour étoffer leurs arguments (2 ex. en image). On vous propose un petit thread pour y voir plus clair... ⬇️ #medievaltwitter
Bon, passons sur les anachronismes (Romains en l'an mil 🤯) : on va essayer de se concentrer sur le fond. Leur argument : le #RechauffementClimatique n'est pas grave, car il y en a eu d'autres, dont un au Moyen Âge, et on y a survécu. Donc on va survivre au prochain. CQFD.
Ce réchauffement médiéval est bien attesté, dans les sources écrites mais surtout par l'#archeologie : dendrochronologie, analyse de pollens, de calottes glaciaires,... On l'appelle le "Petit Optimum Médiéval" (POM pour les intimes), en anglais Medieval Warm Period #climatechange

Drought and wildfires from California to Sweden.
Melting glaciers in the Alps.
Rivers without water.
Animals dying of thirst.

What else beeds to happen until some people realize climate change is real?

It’s official, FL bill HB 631 is now a law and could affect a beach near you even if you don’t live in Florida. Walton County residents were out in droves yesterday (July 1st) to protest this new law, signed by Governor Rick Scott last month.…
This new #Florida law invalidates local municipalities' #customaryuse ordinances and effectively locks the general public out of using the best parts of Florida’s beaches—unless they can afford to rent (or buy) beachfront property. Lawsuits are pending. #standyoursand
🚫HB 631 bans local municipalities from adopting ordinances to regulate public access to Florida’s beaches above the mean water line.

⁉️But first, where’s the mean water line?

💥In short, it's where everyone wants to sit when they're at the beach.…
