Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Congresswoman for NY-14 (the Bronx & Queens). In a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. Jul. 31, 2019 1 min read

This is huge problem for many communities, from PR to WV.

“Coal waste” is a nice word for ash. It piles up in mountainlike heaps + poisons water.

Some candidates last night said addressing climate injustice is a “distraction.” But why should clean water be only for the rich?💧

Fossil fuel companies also ship coal ash built up in PR to often poor communities in the continental US.

In PR, renewables are cheaper than fossil fuels. There is no reason we shouldn’t be pursuing a just transition there outside of corrupt lobbying. ⬇️⬇️

You can follow @AOC.
