In the UK, renewables just provided more energy than fossil fuels for the first time.
We won’t get there while we give fossil fuels $ 20 billion a year. It doesn’t have to be this way—let’s end fossil fuel subsidies and revolutionize our energy grid.https://t.co/Zr3OrGRgJ1

Sen. Susan Collins: “I fought very hard to have an independent, bipartisan commission to look at all of the events of [Jan. 6], and I’m very disappointed that it was not approved. I think it would’ve had far more credibility than Speaker Pelosi’s partisan committee.” pic.twitter.com/UYy1BcloKx
