This issue is bigger than ideology. It is a moral imperative for humanity and our planet’s future to reduce and eventually eliminate emissions.
There are many ways to do it, but we can’t afford to give up. Biden admin is already backing too many pipelines - we need clean energy.
The math we need to do is not just dollars and cents, but emissions reductions + projections.
Any negotiations on climate need to ensure that we will come out climate positive. And that emissions math cannot be informed by fossil fuel lobbyists, who don’t even count methane.
We cannot advance legislation that makes the climate crisis worse.
The Exxon-designed “bipartisan” infrastructure plan worsens emissions, but pairing it w/clean energy in Build Back Better neutralizes BIF’s harm and lets us tackle the climate crisis.
We cannot afford to gut it.
Breaking News: The heart of President Biden's climate agenda — a push to replace coal- and gas-fired power plants — is said to likely be cut from the budget bill because Senator Joe Manchin opposes it.

And by the way, free time is VALUABLE. People pay for time routinely, whether it’s in delivery, services, etc. It’s not lazy to stay home w family- it can lower costs.
700k+ people in the US have died of COVID so far. Do people think that has no impact on labor supply/ capacity?
Quitting being UI ineligible aside, the idea that laziness is why ppl stay home contradicts the “free market ideals” these folks pretend to champion.
Markets apply to labor, too. If supply is low & demand high, price goes up. People seem to accept that for everything but wages.
Y’all already did over a month ago despite everyone having data that ending UI doesn’t push people back to work.
Conservatives love to act like they’re “fiscally savvy” yet remain puzzled as to why people can’t work a job whose pay won’t even cover the childcare costs to work 🤡
There’s a reason white supremacy attacks history.
Opposition to teaching bigotry’s history and where it leads- from the slave trade to the Holocaust - is about erasing society’s tools to recognize prejudice & prevent atrocity.
Holocaust denial has no place in our society. None.
NEW: A school administrator in Southlake, Texas, advised teachers last week that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classroom, they should also have a book with an "opposing" perspective.
Listen to the audio recording obtained by @NBCNews:
How can you help?
1. Follow the example of this truck driver: if your work would ordinarily have you cross where a picket line has started, don’t! Solidarity is a virtue.🌹
2. Support a strike fund💰
3. Amplify the strike and the workers’ message to their company or industry🗣
#Striketober coming in hot 🔥
After years of being underserved and taken for granted - & doubly so during the pandemic - workers are starting to authorize strikes across the country: from @IATSE production workers to @UAW John Deere & @BCTGM Kellogg workers,& many more.
Here's an example of where the progressives vs. moderates frame doesn't cut it. If 83% of Americans favor an idea, is it "moderate" to oppose it? If ~95% of lawmakers in a party support that idea and a few don't, are the latter seeking common ground or preventing it?
New: 83% of the public supports having the federal government negotiate drug prices, even after hearing arguments for and against the idea.
We didn't poll on baseball, motherhood, and apple pie, but I'm not sure they would score much higher.
Our children are sacred.
