If you're like me, you've been appalled by the lack of discussion of real climate action in the media amidst the massive storms and fires this summer. With that in mind, we're excited to be working alongside our new colleagues at ClimateTruth.org to demand that journalists drive a real conversation of who's to blame and what's to be done about these climate disasters.

Join us in today's tweet storm, as a first step in changing this debate.

Today, Donald Trump pushed forward executive orders that would resurrect the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. This is part of a series of unjust decisions that Trump has made since his inauguration.
