@FactsOnClimate/Twitter

The Obama administration has continued its push to act on climate change by creating a Twitter account dedicated to facts on climate change, aptly named “Facts on Climate.”

The Twitter account was started on October 21 and after two days has obtained over 4,000 followers. The account hopes to communicate how the government is addressing climate change, as well spreading awareness of the problems our environment faces.

The past few months have seen the Obama administration focus a lot of attention on the environment, such as the first ever presidential trip to the Arctic. In late August, Obama reignited this push to act on climate change in a speech at the GLACIER conference, stressing that if we don't take immediate action on climate change, then "entire nations will find themselves under severe, severe problems: More drought. More floods. Rising sea levels. Greater migration. More refugees. More scarcity. More conflict."
