“The study finds that over a twenty year period, networks of actors promulgating scientific misinformation about #climatechange were increasingly integrated into the institution of US philanthropy.” iopscience.iop.org/article/10.108…
Which means you helped pay for it through the tax system, sucka! #TimeToWakeUp!

“The degree of integration is predicted by funding ties to prominent corporate donors. These findings reveal new knowledge about large-scale efforts to distort public understanding of science and sow polarization.”

Which means you got conned by the polluters!

.@SenSchumer & I are leading a group of 24 senators in calling on the biggest lobbyist in Washington, the @USChamber, to begin advocating for the Democratic Caucus’s straightforward resolution calling for action on #climate change.

medium.com/senator-sheldo…
That resolution is simple: it says

1⃣ #climatechange is real
2⃣caused by humans, and
3⃣Congress must take action now.

Those are things we know companies represented on the @USChamber’s board support.
So the largest lobbying organization in the country ought to join us and act on behalf of its members who stand to benefit from a transition to a #cleanenergy economy.

It's #TimeToWakeUp

I must respectfully disagree with my friend @SenJohnBarrasso ’s Op-Ed on the @nytimes.

I will explain why in this thread⬇️ nytimes.com/2018/12/18/opi…
1️⃣ The referendum result in Washington State looked like more relentless campaigning by the fossil fuel industry against #climate action;

without that industry onslaught, the #carbontax referendum there would probably have passed.

2️⃣ A #carbontax is not “expensive,” as in our proposals all the money goes back to the public.

Taxing #carbon moves energy markets toward cheaper renewables.
On balance, people save money.

Don’t forget that the savings from avoiding #climate catastrophes are immense.

▶WATCH LIVE: #TimeToWakeUp: 24th Conference of the Parties(COP) pscp.tv/w/buA0XjFXTEVS…
For this week’s #TTWU speech, I discussed #COP24, the climate gathering happening right now in Poland. link.medium.com/PayAxIOxzS
The U.S. is present, but American leadership on climate change is decidedly absent because #darkmoney & sleazy operatives control @realDonaldTrump & the #Republicans.
