Quick reminder that poor, working class, Black, Brown and Indigenous communities are the first and most greatly impacted by climate change.

On Trump's inauguration day, I was working for the @NatlParkService at a wilderness area & UNESCO biosphere reserve on the U.S-Mexico border.

3 years later, a #BorderWall is being built through the very ecosystem we worked so hard to protect.

Quoted @DannyDutch

The flashing of black and white these Sandpipers display is caused by their black backs and white chests. Coupled with the colour of the sky it looks like they keep disappearing.

When you are hurting, somewhere, this is also happening. When you are wronged, when you are lonely, are lost, are scattered, somewhere, somewhere real, this is also happening.

Quoted @CenterForBioDiv

The Border Patrol is pumping thousands of gallons daily to mix concrete for the border wall. Right now construction teams are within miles of Quitobaquito Spring, heedless of draining this precious desert waterway and its endangered little denizens.

A little borderlands magic to get us through the long battle ahead. The spotted skunk — stank-ninja of the Sonoran Desert Resistance Front — is seen here on a remote camera engaging in a defensive headstand to intimidate would-be attackers.

Navajo Poet Laureate @LauraTohe’s poem “Japanese Garden” is the selection for today. It should be noted that the poem was written in Navajo then translated into English. An important detail. 🦅 #PoemADay @POETSorg #Navajo #diné

I'm pleased to join the newly-formed Senate Climate Solutions Caucus. I welcome the bipartisan, consensus-based approach this group has committed to & believe it will support & expand on the important work we are undertaking on the Energy & Natural Resources Committee.

“Upwards of 500 people from throughout the Southwest turned out for the peaceful protest... They chanted, “Sacred Lands, Sacred Life, Stop the Desecration,” and held signs and banners with messages like, “Protect Sacred Places,” & “Migration is Natural.”

The @IPCC_CH says that emissions must be halved in 11 years, and ceased in 30, if we are to have even a 66% chance of halting warming at 2C.

Is that what you’re pushing for?

Because anything else is greenwashing.

I’m always very concerned about‘viral’ videos, esp those with animals - the one featuring the Beluga Whale raised serious alarm bells in me. Turns out my instincts were right. Thanks to @FinlayPringle for pointing me in the direction of the truth.

Quoted @elissawashuta

I see some non-Native readers looking for recommendations of works by Native writers who aren't Sherman Alexie. It's honestly pretty tiring to fight for attention and only get it at times like these, but I'm willing to take the opening and make some recommendations:

Older tweet but such a good list! Thank you Elissa Washuta!
