In America, no one person or political party can alter the unassailable principle that the rule of law prevails. Every vote must be counted in this election, and the will of the American people will determine the outcome. We must remain calm. Democracy will win the day.
We’re at an inflection point. For our future. For our world. And we need everyone to get involved. I'll be joining #YourVoteYourWorld with @ClimateReality , @EarthDayNetwork , & @HipHopCaucus on October 24 to show how we can make a difference this election.
Today marks the beginning of a new commitment to self-government by, of and for all of our people. Here’s my statement on @JoeBiden’s Presidential Election Victory.
Global temps continue to rise at an alarming rate, and nowhere is this more frightening than in the Arctic, where the temperature is 12 degrees F warmer than average, over an area twice the size of the U.S. This a climate emergency.
My statement on Today’s Decision by the Trump Administration to Withdraw from the Paris Agreement:
Senators should reject Mike Pompeo’s nomination to be Secretary of State. He denies the climate crisis, and has been doing the bidding for fossil fuel interests his whole career. The American people deserve better.
The President is imposing a rule that will increase pollution by nearly a billion tons of CO2 & result in drivers paying more at the pump. Bad policy & reckless timing as Americans cope w/ a pandemic exacerbated by air pollution. He must be held to account.
The Larsen C ice shelf has broken away from Antarctica, a jarring reminder of why we must solve the climate crisis.
