Biden: "nobody's going to build another coal-fired power plant in America" that's huge. huge huge huge

you guys i am so happy they talked about climate change for 10 minutes, and they were pretty good questions. we are in a climate emergency, and we got a tiny bit closer to that answer tonight.

The NHC has just initiated advisories on a potential tropical cyclone that's expected to become an intensifying Category 2 hurricane in the central Gulf of Mexico later this week. Obviously this is an extremely concerning forecast. The next name on the list would be Delta.

Here's what the HWRF - our most accurate high-resolution weather model - shows Hurricane Delta will look like in exactly three days. This is a deadly serious situation. If you're in Louisiana, *please* take this storm seriously.

Hi friends, some personal news: Today I’m launching a new Substack called *The Phoenix*, because the world is on fire and we’ve got to build a new one from the ashes. This is a publication for climate revolutionaries. I'm so ready. Subscribe here:

NOAA and NASA data have just confirmed that September 2020 was the warmest September ever measured globally. 2020 now has a 64% chance of being the warmest year in history. We've broken the climate system. We are in a climate emergency.

That a sitting president – of any party – would deny their own citizens help during their time of greatest need, amid literal hellfire raining down on American cities, is beyond shameful. I actually can't believe this, and there's been A LOT happening lately. Trump must go.

This is *five times* the Exxon Valdez spill. The Caribbean Sea would never be the same.

Hurricane Irma is so strong it's starting to show up on seismometers in the Caribbean -- equipment designed to measure earthquakes.

Meanwhile, on the hottest day in the history of France, here’s shocking video of police spraying tear gas in the faces of climate activists in Paris. This happened today. Do not look away.

Day 31: 84% of Puerto Rico is w/o power 28% w/o running water Yesterday, a surgery was conducted by cellphone light. An affront to humanity.

87°F just south of the Arctic Circle in Finland today. Folks, you may think that this is not normal and you'd be right

This week, 40 billion tons of ice will melt in Greenland as the European heat wave moves north -- enough to measurably raise global sea levels. This single heat wave will create a permanent change in our oceans that will linger for millennia. We are in a climate emergency.

Please remember: What is happening in Texas + California is voter suppression and it is intentional. No one should have to wait two or three hours to vote. Voter suppression disproportionately disenfranchises working class voters.

There are now at least 14 "rogue" Twitter accounts from federal science agencies:

This is worth repeating over and over: The most horrific thing Brazil's new president, Jair Bolsonaro, has planned is privatization of the Amazon rainforest. With just 12yr remaining to remake the global economy and prevent catastrophic climate change, this is planetary suicide.
