Yesterday I wrote this thread documenting climate-related changes I’ve observed on the East End of LI.

It was swarmed by deniers.

Today the local paper, the @EHStar, put an article about these changes on their front page.

And now I’m going to double down...

Here’s the front page, top story entitled “Waking Up to the Reality of Climate Change.”🔥🔥🔥
Here is the East Hampton Town Supervisor @PeterVanScoyoc noting that his trees have been devastated by the systemic pine beetle infestation of the region.

Here is Mr Scoyoc, along w Ed Michaels, the town’s chief harbor master, reporting on the local effects of sea level rise.

(Spoiler: things are sinking and flooding is increasing.)

Here is Bill Taylor, EH town’s Waterways Management Supervisor, describing the fact that lobsters, once a staple of Monatauk fisheries, have migrated north.

And finally, here is Rebecca Young, a nurse at the Tick-Bourne Disease Resorce Center at Southampton Hospital, reporting that winter tick bites (once very rare) are in the rise.

So, look, deniers use the observation that “climate is not weather” to deride anyone who, knowing the basics of what science describes as the effects of climate change, describes those effects around her.

But remember: climate change is real. And climate change is here now.

The changes we’re seeing now are like the very faint, very distant roar of a train speeding towards you. They will get louder.

Right now we’re stuck on the tracks. The Russian, Saudi, and US govts are colluding w oil and gas interests to prevent us from moving forward.

Let’s get those sociopathic monsters out of the way.

Let’s #ActOnClimate, committing to a #GreenNewDeal that will #KeepItInTheGround and save something of this miraculous world for our children.

And PS this whole thing was inspired by @DrAndreaDutton, who call for all of us to “recognize, point out, and talk about all the signs of global warming every day to engage in conversations about solutions.”

Thank you, Dr Dutton!
