Good morning and Happy Friday to everyone who understands climate change is REAL and is not blocking infrastructure deals because they're in the pocket of Big Oil.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) September 3, 2021
Looking at YOU, Joe Manchin.
In the last 24 hours, our supporters raised $185,000+ for Texas abortion orgs and made ~100,000 check-in calls to Ida flood victims in our NYC district.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) September 3, 2021
Let this be your sign. Find an organizing community, roll up your sleeves, and get to work. It feels better to be in movement.
Ok now can we finally treat the climate crisis as a crisis?— Dan Rather (@DanRather) September 3, 2021
Rebuilding our crumbling physical infrastructure – roads, bridges, water systems – is important. Rebuilding our crumbling human infrastructure – health care, education, climate change – is more important.

At least 46 ppl drowned in Hurricane Ida in the northeast US, so far a higher number than in Louisiana, where it first made landfall 1,400 miles away.— 🎃🎶He did the THRASH (the monster THRASH) (@thrasherxy) September 3, 2021
A major reason for this is greedy landlords—and there is a connection to why so few housing relief funds have been utilized.
We have no internet, no power. The mail isn’t delivered. My Amazon order was supposed to arrive 9/2 but I haven’t seen any of their trucks. Yet an ancient device for conveying information, relying on ink & paper, has been sitting on my driveway every morning since Hurricane Ida. pic.twitter.com/OZWSuZIwGc— Peter Kovacs (@PKovacs7) September 3, 2021
