Great piece from @ayanaeliza : the climate crisis has Brooklyn its sights, so why isn't its Congressman stepping up?

thanks for your endless openness and fighting spirit, friend!

Actual big-deal breaking news. @Chase  will stop lending for arctic oil, coal. These are small concessions that leave them the largest funder of the climate crisis-- but it proves citizen power can work! Thanks to all who've taken a stand, and all who will!

Oil CEOs are a notably selfless breed, constantly fixed on the betterment of humankind. It's just who they are.

And didn't give you credit. Apologies, and great piece!

Whoa! Huge win on one of the world's most beautiful coasts. After massive organizing, Equinor is leaving the Great Australian Bight alone! Such thanks to all who fought!

I think the bottom line on @Chase 's climate announcements today is: a couple of decades late, and about $196 billion dollars short.

So glad @Auramvasquez  is campaigning without fossil fuel money. It's 2020--Democrats should not be taking cash from big oil

European satellite agency concludes that June was the hottest month ever recorded on earth, our planet.

New study: if we stop emissions immediately, Arctic still warms 5C/9F by century's end. We're not stopping global warming any more; we're fighting like hell for a level that civilizations might survive. #ClimateStrike

These are Australians waiting on the beach to flee into the ocean if the fire keeps coming. It's the only 'safe' place they can find.

Good golly! A few minutes ago a Boston judge acquitted 13 pipeline protesters on the grounds that the climate crisis made it necessary for them to commit civil disobedience. This may be a first in America. Details to follow, and go to for some live video

As we helplessly watch Florida suffer today, remember that the the fossil fuel companies knew all about climate change in 1980s. And lied.

I've never CAPSLOCKED before, but IRELAND JUST VOTED TO BECOME THE FIRST NATION ON EARTH TO FULLY DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS. It's a fine day, begorra!
