At her age and with her money she obviously does not give a damn about the impact of climate change.

Her past policy actions has never been truly progressive. Why change now?

Thanks for this. It’s amazing (or very sad) to me that she has so much support over there. She is not going to escape the optics of her encounter with the kids. Spin spin spin not going to work. She exposed her true self and it was ugly.

This is pertinent

February 22, 2019

Dear Senator Feinstein,

On behalf of the dozen organizations active in the No Fossil Fuel Money coalition, representing millions of supporters, we write to demand that you live up to your pledge to “prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.”

On February 24, 2018, you signed the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge in person at the California Democratic Party’s Environmental Caucus meeting in San Diego, California.

The No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge, as you know, states the following: “I pledge to not take contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industry and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.”

As articulated on the website, “[t]aking the pledge means that a politician or candidate’s campaign will adopt a policy to not knowingly accept any contributions over $200 from the PACs, executives, or front groups of fossil fuel companies — companies whose primary business is the extraction, processing, distribution, or sale of oil, gas, or coal.”

We’ve recently learned that during your 2018 Senatorial campaign, after signing the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge, you accepted at least two major contributions that are in clear violation of this pledge:

On June 5, 2018, a $5000 contribution from the Tesoro Petroleum Corporation Political Action Committee.
On September 4, 2018, a $2500 contribution from the Phillips 66 Political Action Committee.
As both of these contributions are from political action committees directly affiliated with oil companies, they are in clear violation of the pledge you signed.

We demand that you immediately return these funds and any other funds received by your campaign that violate the pledge you signed on February 24, 2018. Failure to provide proof of the return of these funds by close of business Friday, March 1 will result in your removal from our listing of No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge signers.

Further, we stand in solidarity with the young constituents who visited your office today to request your support for the Green New Deal resolution. We believe your response to their respectful request was unbecoming of a climate champion and we urge you to reconsider your position, and to issue an apology to the youth who spoke with you.

Should you wish to speak further on this matter, please contact us as follows:

RL Miller, Founder, Climate Hawks Vote, rlm@climatehawksvote.com

This is a repeat of a snarky tweet that I posted earlier today.

T and R, subir!! Good seeing you here. I follow over at TOP, too. 🙂 DiFi is a relic who needs to retire. She’s in her 80s, and starting to show signs of senility. A Futurist, she ain’t.

This proposal both serves to green-wash some of her recent PR missteps, and to muddy the water regarding the popular real GND.

And as with others, I am very pleased to see you posting here @subir!
