It is essential that the debates tomorrow and Thursday cover climate change in depth and I may be rather unsenatorial if they don’t.

Here he is yelling about them understanding English. If this is how they treat nice old people outside of cages, imagine how guards are treating imprisoned immigrants.

Former Japanese prisoners of American internment camps peacefully demonstrated in front of a former internment camp facility that is being set up for indefinitely holding immigrants. A military cop interrupted and began shouting aggressively at them to leave.

Those were authorized. They have been stretched beyond recognition but they were voted upon.

The President said that he doesn’t need authorization to go to war. He’s wrong. Only Congress can authorize a war.

This exchange is wow: Schatz: Did you say you do not use persuasive technology? Google: "That is correct, sir." Schatz: You sure bro? Google: "We design for privacy, security, and control for users. This builds a lifelong relationship which is primary." Schatz: wut?

It's two days before the Democratic debates in Miami where climate change is likely to be a big topic and as if on cue, there's a 17,000 acre wildfire in the Everglades

3. The rule for candidates: ***Do not blather on about how climate change is real.*** Seriously. We are past that. You don't get any points for bragging about how you "believe scientists." You don't get any points for easy potshots at GOP deniers. Talk policy.

2. The rule for moderators: ***Do not ask if climate change is real.*** We know it's f'ing real. Asking whether it's real just introduces doubt to a settled question & gives the candidates a chance to blather. No basic science questions. Focus on policy specifics!

1. All right, the Dem debates are approaching and climate change is expected to take "center stage." Naturally I have many thoughts on the matter, but in this short thread I just want to lay out one rule for moderators & one for candidates.

I’m still not done laughing/being appalled at republcian elected officials physically running away from a vote on climate change. Not “running away” as a metaphor for being cowardly. I mean actually fleeing. It’s so perfect. In a bad way.

Pence once wrote an op-ed that “global warming is a myth” because “CO2 is a naturally occurring phenomenon in nature” & greenhouse gases were the result of “result of volcanoes, hurricanes and underwater geologic displacements.”

We had a bipartisan bill but Stephen Miller blew it up. To start we should pass this border supp which has money for humanitarian aid. We should also enable people to apply for asylum in their home country. And in the meantime we should be humane to the kids.
