Quoted @GretaThunberg

"Right now more than ever we are desperate for hope. But what is hope?
For me, hope is the feeling that keeps you going, even though all odds may be against you. For me hope comes from action not just words. For me, hope is telling it like it is."

This guy (Daniel Beck) says several senators, Don Jr, Rudy, etc attended a January 5 pre-Insurrection meeting at Trump International Hotel.

Unreal.

No wonder they don’t want to have an impeachment trial...

Quoted @atrupar

Rand Paul goes on a bizarre rant where he suggests that climate change is mostly the result of the earth's tilt, not greenhouse gases (scientists disagree)

He's not really that stupid, is he?

To lower costs, Chevron regularly set fire to its oil pits in Ecuador so the toxic waste would burn into the air.

Black clouds of dioxins led to cancer, respiratory illness and "black rain" that would ruin crops and sicken wildlife.

Chevron has not paid a dime for the damage.

BREAKING: Biden to order DOJ to end private prison contracts as part of racial equity push

This is great development & important step.

There’s more to be done to end the for-profit caging of people in the US. We must include ending for-profit immigrant detention & examine the use of for-profit services that squeeze families of the incarcerated in public prisons, too.

They refused to hear witnesses. “Let the people decide in the election”. They did. Trump tried to overturn their decision and caused death and destruction. Now all but 5 say never mind. Unbelievable.

Greta's piercing insights meld with blunt truth:

Current #ClimateCrisis 'solutions' are like cruise ship passengers watching water pour through holes in the ship's hull, but the crew just tells them "Don't worry, we're planning to put a pool there!"

We need #ClimateAction ASAP!
