With @fema, we’re co-hosting the “Alliances for Climate Action,” a virtual series of talks each Wednesday in October to provide accurate, timely and actionable info during a time of rapid global climate change.
Tune in now to hear from @SenBillNelson: nasa.gov/live
UPDATE: Last month's global average concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂) was about 417 parts per million (ppm), a nearly 49% rise in 171 years due to human activities, like burning fossil fuels. climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/ca…

5) Here is another major misinfo red flag 🚩 that politicians love to tout… “herd immunity is coming soon” 🚩 🚩 🚩 🚩…. There are parts of Iran where people have been infected 2-3 times!!! Mass infection is not a strategy! Let find our damn moral backbontwitter.com/rougematisse/s…cA09X
Rep. Liz Cheney just now:
“Mr. Trump’s privilege arguments do, however, appear to reveal one thing: they suggest that President Trump was personally involved in the planning and execution of January 6, and this committee will get the bottom of that.”
Jen Psaki responds to trump suing over Jan 6 docs, says trump “abused the office” and “attempted to subvert a peaceful transfer of power.” “executive privilege should not be used to shield information that reflects a clear and apparent effort to subvert the Constitution itself.”
Big tech companies shouldn’t be able to use the information they collect on small businesses that sell on their platforms to create copy cat products and box out competition. This hurts our economy and raises prices for YOU.
Now is the time for Congress to act. twitter.com/globeopinion/s…

Texas has waged a relentless war on abortion access, and I'm not going to back down from this fight.
We are filing a brief in the Supreme Court to stop the state's draconian abortion ban and safeguard the rights of people across Texas, New York, and our nation.
For the “kids are practically immune” crowd out there…. is this 2-year old intubated on a ventilator for 5 days—an “acceptable” level of kids illness? Zero kids are supposed to be intubated nor die. Zero. #COVID19goodmorningamerica.com/wellness/story…
I don’t recall any leader who say we should “LEARN TO LIVE” with Ebola, rabies, or HIV. We shouldn’t “learn to live” with #COVID19 either. If we do, this is the price we will pay for years to come 👇, plus maim an entire generation with#LongCovidd. b
2) Anyone who says we need to “learn to live” with the virus needs to visit the memorials of all those who have died and tell me exactly just how many flags is “acceptable” for their their partying and social life. twitter.com/DrEricDing/sta…
The death of Colin Powell from COVID-19 complications after being fully vaccinated and in the care of the unparalleled staff at Walter Reed is alarming.
Dr. @PeterHotez puts the risks in perspective in this thread.
My condolences to General Powell’s family and friends. twitter.com/PeterHotez/sta…
Deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Gen. Colin Powell, I got to meet him a couple of times over the years, an extraordinary American.
Already being asked about breakthrough deaths among the vaccinated, will answer in attached tweet.
According to CDC among 187 million vaccinated Americans there have been roughly 7,000 breakthrough deaths, with >6,000 over the age of 65, as compared to >700,000 COVID deaths among the unvaccinated. So breakthrough deaths esp elderly can occur but rare cdc.gov/vaccines/covid…
This, on #COVID19 , new from Pope Francis:
"I ask all the great pharmaceutical laboratories to release the patents. Make a gesture of humanity & allow every country, every people, every human being, to have access to the #vaccines."
The ruling class of this country is absolutely terrified that we just might show the working class what it looks like when the United States government delivers for someone who is not a billionaire or a corporation.
In Washington, Republicans don't think twice about huge tax cuts for billionaires. But when you start talking about doing anything at all to make life easier for working people? Forget it.
Republicans love socialism for the rich, rugged individualism for the rest of us.
“There’s no need to allow this to go on forever, especially since the legal basis for it is so very weak,” says @RepZoeLofgren on Trump suing the Jan. 6 committee to block the release of White House documents. on.msnbc.com/3DXAO4J

Across the country and around the world, we are seeing devastating impacts from the climate crisis. America cannot afford any delay in taking back the lead in the fight to stop climate change.
To #BuildBackBetter with a focus on climate is simply what we *must* do.
Secretary Colin Powell was an incredible American. An independent thinker and a barrier breaker, he dedicated his life to defending our nation and always showed the world the best of who we are.
@SecondGentleman and I send our deepest condolences to his family.
Despite the attacks and misinformation, my plans still have the overwhelming support of the American people.
They understand that when families have a little more breathing room, America has a better shot.
