With or without humans, the Earth will still continue. It might not be the home we recognize it as, but it will continue. If we don't care for our home, we are making it uninhabitable for OURSELVES and the biosystem which sustains our lives as we know it. 1/8
With or without humans, the Earth will still follow the known laws of physics, chemistry, and biology. An Earth with unchecked levels of greenhouse gasses will continue to rise in temperature. 2/8…
The shift in weather patterns, growing seasons, rise in sea level, decrease in clean drinking water, emergence of diseases laid dormant in permafrost now melting, doesn't care if you believe in climate change or not. 3/8…
Let's pretend for a sec that all the people that care about the environment, that cite 95% of known climatologists are being unnecessarily alarmist. Worst case scenario is we have cleaner air, conservative use of water, & growing seasons stabilize. 4/8…
Now pretend that climate change deniers are wrong. Worst case scenario is that sea levels rise, our weather becomes more erratic and severe, our growing seasons shift in such a way that we have food shortages and our drinking water becomes rationed. 5/8…
I'd rather be wrong & have a healthy Earth & sustainability, then be right. “I told you so,” doesn't feel great when you see a group of humans struggling to survive, potentially at war. The DoD sees climate change as a threat to National Security. 6/8…
The issue with humans is that we aren't great with risk assessment, thinking long term, and oh boy the hubris of our species… 7/8
We must not just care about the earth, we must care about ourselves. We must start thinking about our children’s and grandchildren’s futures. Climate change will affect them in their lifetimes. #EarthDay /End 8

I was 17 the first time I was raped.

I didn't say anything to anyone. It wasn't like I put up a FIGHT. I just said, "No" then everything happened so fast and I didn't know what to do.

Actions were happening faster than my brain could process it.
I didn't remember anyone telling me how to say No - to someone you knew. Someone that was friendly.

We learned self defense in physical education. They separated the girls from the boys in HS PE. I have a vague recollection of how to shove someone's nose into their brain.
I was raised by a woman that was raised to think that her position relative to a man was important.

When a boyfriend and I broke up, she would ask me what I did wrong. It is only from the perspective of adulthood that I saw she was doing what she was socialized to do...

Let's play a game.

Which numbers would tell us more about how Americans are *really* doing than the unemployment percentage?


It's About Americans, Stupid... 📉
How about the number of American families that are struggling to make ends meet? 50 million…

Whenever progressives speak up for refugees, the GOP pushes the propaganda that we don't care about the impoverished people of the United States.

We do care. We care a lot and the things that we advocate for proves that.

Living Wage reduces poverty. Although in every conservative article, it will say the opposite. Of course it does! It never occurs to them that workers should make more instead of the 1% getting more wealthy off their workers' backs. /2…
Healthcare for All means that families aren’t going into bankruptcy to save their family members from the treatment of medical issues. /3…

When Trump said he would make Mexico pay for the wall, we all assumed he meant with money. ~paraphrasing @pru_fallows

Trump is making the children and parents of Central American families seeking asylum pay for his wall in anguish, grief, and sorrow.
Trump is hoping to exchange sorrow for money to build his wall. The wall that has been proven in studies to be ineffective and costly.…

So now the exorbitant cost of his wall is no longer just monetary.

"The enemy of my enemy" is a phrase that no longer works in our current world order. The enemy of my enemy is probably still an enemy and with Donald at the helm, those who used to actually be our "friends" no longer rely on the US. /1

The USA, China, and Russia have had a complicated past. Add in Donald's personal conflicts into the issues affecting the country and it gets messy, fast.

USA withdraws from the TPP, which helps Russia, China, Japan /2…
China gives Donald & Ivanka provisional patents after he supports One China Policy (and withdraws from TPP) (2/2017). This specifically helps the Trumps, and few others. /3…
