It's been too hot this week and now here I am with this horrible news about the climate crisis.
This is what sea level rise looks like.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) August 2, 2019
Those who argue that a #GreenNewDeal is too ambitious don’t see that glacial melt isn’t waiting - in fact, it’s happening at a much faster rate than predicted.
We don’t have time to argue. We need to act - on a massive scale. 🌎 https://t.co/VbpT1sCudq
And before you're like "but this happens every year," normal glacial melt is 60-70 billion tons per year. This was 12 billion tons of melt in ONE DAY. So far 197 billion tons have melted this summer alone, and melt season won't be over until the end of August.
The right will kill us all. And I mean ALL.
