Apparently, #WeThePeople have failed to make it clear to our representatives, our #thoughts regarding #ClimateChange. We take the threat of climate change seriously and it’s affects that will negatively impact all of our futures.
We’re counting on them to implement #ClimateActionNOW to mitigate those negative effects. @AOC’s #GreenNewDeal resolution is, thus far, the closest thing to a serious proposal offered up by any representative or candidate for office.
It’s bad enough that we have to face off against oil and gas lobbyists but, now we find ourselves having to fight our representatives as well.
Please, contact your representatives and let them know that you want them to fight for us, our future and our children’s futures.
3,000 Americans died in Hurricane María. The Midwest is drowning as we speak. 100s of Flint families were pumped w/ poisoned water & our water infrastructure is imperiled across the country.
GOP thinks this is a joke.
They choose to laugh+delay.
We choose to lead.#GreenNewDeal https://t.co/FWO2bvx0wD

For the last half-century, we’ve been kicking cans, further & further down the road. We’ve caught up to the cans & it’s time to clean them up, recycle them & use them to build the future of the United States of America.

The Incrementalists Are Coming, The Incrementalists Are Coming
For all of those who encourage incrementalism, saying things like, “These things take time”, “That’s not how these things work” or “Sometimes you’ve got go sideways to find a new way forward”. Those things are prudent and sound it’s true but, then plans need to be made and actions implemented.
How far sideways do we have to go before realizing we’re going the wrong way? We’ve known about the dangers of climate change for the last 50 years. Our healthcare prices have continued to soar higher & higher, becoming less & less attainable. We’ve seen that coming for what, three or so decades? Not too mention our crumbling infrastructure.
We’ve allowed our “Representatives” to kick the can, further and further down the road. Well, the end of the road is in sight and there’s a giant wall in the near distance.
The time has passed, there are plans (GND, Medicare Fol All) that can start to be implemented and now is not the time for incrementalism. Politicians will stand up on their soap boxes preaching austerity and how sacrifices must be made when it comes policies that affect #WeThePeople. All the while giving tax cuts, breaks, incentives to huge businesses and their wealthy donors. #EnoughIsEnough #YearOfThePeople2020
The US has a choice: a just, livable, renewable energy future—or the road to climate catastrophe. The outcome depends on what social movements (read: all of us!) do in the next 2 years.

2020 The Year Of The People
Building upon the “Blue Wave” during the 2018 United States mid-term elections, Progressives all around the country will continue to stand up to the corruption that’s infected our government and Representatives. With the #GreenNewDeal and #MedicareForAll polling at record levels with the majority of Americans, Progressives are cued up to make 2020 the year of the people. #YearOfThePeople2020
