The public health implications of overturning #RoeVsWade are clear: it means pregnant people will needlessly suffer. act.ucsusa.org/3ndb6mk
The policy decisions following this ruling that restrict reproductive health will ignore what the best available science tells us about how to best protect people.
Everyone should have access to healthcare. Everyone should be able to access approved medical procedures, drugs, and other services. Denying or restricting people of these services only endangers people’s lives.

Yesterday we talked about the threat the events of Jan. 6 posed to our democracy. But #Jan6 also highlighted a threat to our entire planet. Why? Outdated and dangerous policies give @POTUS sole authority to launch a nuclear strike & no one can stop it once issued. (🧵) –
Two days after the capitol riot, concerns about then-president Trump led House Speaker Pelosi to ask the head of the US military, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, about "preventing an unstable president from...ordering a nuclear strike. politico.com/news/2021/01/0…
Unknown to Pelosi, Gen. Milley was already trying to step in, taking extraordinary measures to insert himself in the nuclear chain of command, even though he has no role and his actions might have been completely ineffective. washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/…

Today, California's @AirResources held a workshop on electric truck infrastructure. Investments in charging infrastructure and deployment of electric trucks are critical, as is a strong Advanced Clean Fleets Rule, to getting zero-emission trucks on the road.
A strong electric truck fleet rule will create certainty in the heavy-duty charging infrastructure marketplace & send a clear signal that we must continue momentum on the investment & buildout of zero-emission fueling tech. #ElectricTrucksNow @mslianeran ElectricTrucksNow.com
Major public/private charging infrastructure investments have already been made and will continue. @GKracov @taniahlthplce @nathanfletcher - let’s keep the momentum going to supply clean energy to a 100% electric truck fleet.

Hurricane season officially started yesterday. In the lower 48 states, there are 126 counties at risk of storm surge from a Category 5 hurricane, according to NOAA. Based on our analysis, just 36% of eligible people across those counties is fully vaccinated.
The Gulf Coast is home to hundreds of large petrochemical plants, oil wells and refineries, and Superfund sites containing large quantities of toxic material. Every hurricane strike has the potential to expose people in the area to even greater concentrations of toxic chemicals.
Weathering a storm requires resources. A handful of states in hurricane territory, including Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia and South Carolina, have opted to discontinue expanded unemployment benefits earlier than is required by the federal govt.

We are encouraged by the Biden administration’s initial actions and science-based plan to address the #COVID crisis, but recognize that ALL OF US must act to bring the virus under control and prevent more needless deaths. int.nyt.com/data/documentt…
Science clearly shows that masking up and social distancing are essential to bringing the virus under control. Requiring masks on all federal property is a good step, but EVERYBODY should be wearing a mask in public, no matter where they are. act.ucsusa.org/39dmrNt
To contain the virus, we need a rapid & equitable rollout of vaccines. We are encouraged by the federal leadership & coordination announced by the Biden admin, & recognize individuals, communities, & states still have to do our part to ensure as many people are vaccinated asap.
