To share news, take actions, challenge each other to take actions that can have a positive impact on that future.

In 2012 @realDonaldTrump Tweeted this: The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

We disagree. By our sights, Global Warming is ongoing and is caused by the (measurable, undeniable) spike in the level of carbon dioxide in out atmosphere. You only have to open your eyes and ears, look around, to see that human activity is a huge driver there.

In 2012 @realDonaldTrump was a businessman and reality tv personality - his Tweet was simply ill informed and inconsequential. Today Doanld Trump is the President Elect of the United States, today he needs to get right not with the cartoon China he used in 2012 - but with the real nation, China.

China’s Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin has clarified, from the currrent Climate Meetings meetings in Marrakech: “If you look at the history of climate change negotiations, actually it was initiated by the IPCC with the support of the Republicans during the Reagan and senior Bush administration during the late 1980s,” Liu told reporters during an hour-long briefing.

is real reality. Serious world leaders understand the threat - and the need to act now.

The loss we carry, a sea we must wade We've braved the belly of the beast We've learned that quiet isn't always peace And the norms and notions of what just is Isn’t always just-ice And yet the dawn is ours before we knew it Somehow we do it Somehow we've weathered and witnessed a nation that isn’t broken but simply unfinished We the successors of a country and a time Where a skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one And yes we are far from polished far from pristine but that doesn’
I don't think any of us have any doubt that peaceful protests lead by BIPOC communities are treated differently.  We saw this in the uprising this summer. Can you imagine if there was a violent storming of the Capitol? There's just no way there would be such a light law enforcement, no way there would have been a small number of arrests, no way it wouldn't have been met with law enforcement violence, no way folks would have been casually walking in and out of the Capitol. I'm glad the media are using appropriate terms like insurrection, mob violence, and domestic terrorism, and accountability is now required. #impeach and #convict #25thamendment
