As Kilauea erupts, the scientists at @USGSVolcanoes, along with folks like @mikamckinnon @janinekrippner @eruptionsblog and others, are working overtime to fight a tide of myths and misinformation. They deserve our gratitude. https://t.co/hITW9dmH1W

.@ShaunKing Can you help expose #racism here? @Nicoderojito, a young #NativeAmerican man was turned away from a college campus because his ID was from the @CherokeeNation.
The security guard kept his ID.
College prez “kinda” apologized in stmt makes no mention of race or tribe. https://t.co/zUbWrhSSAZ

shocked that an EPA administration that *literally threatened to call the police on a reporter for trying to cover an event* would be so opposed to a free and open press https://t.co/8Llv7dD1fv
