    10 of the Best Tweets on Climate Change

    In 280 characters or fewer, these tweets cover the absurdity of climate denial, ponder what alien life would think about dirty energy, and worry that the future of rap is at stake. Here are 10 of the best tweets about climate change:

    1. Yeah, could we?

    Here’s the reality: There is an overwhelming consensus among climate scientists that our climate is changing and humans are to blame. When we burn fossil fuels, we pump heat-trapping gases into our atmosphere that cause temperatures to rise. And just like the health of our families, climate change should never be a partisan issue! Get the facts in our free Climate 101 e-book.

    2. Neil deGrasse Tyson has questions ready to ask alien life

    As climate scientist Dr. Michael E. Mann told Climate Reality in an interview last year, “There is no longer a worthy debate to be had about whether we have a problem. There is a worthy debate to be had about how we go about solving that problem.”

    3. He’s not the only one who wonders what extraterrestrials would think

    Dirty, dangerous fossil fuels are the energy of the past. And clean, reliable renewable energy is helping us power the world today. Get the facts in our free fossil fuel fact sheet.

    4. Oh, Chad

    Thanks to the fossil fuel industry, there’s a lot of misinformation out there about our warming world and renewable energy. But don’t worry – we have a fact sheet about renewable energy to help you get to the truth.

    5. A story for the ages

    6. Just a quick public service announcement

    Those are just the facts. If you know that climate change is real (and you live in the US), join the Climate Majority and join us in fighting for solutions.

    7. Even JK Rowling appreciates this one

    We think that’s what they call a mic drop.

    8. An oldie but a goodie from Stephen Colbert

    Weather and climate aren’t the same thing! And cold weather doesn’t disprove climate change.

    9. Sometimes climate denial eclipses all logic

    Climate scientists (like the incredible Dr. Katharine Hayhoe) work tirelessly to research and deliver the latest information on the future of our planet. If 97 percent of doctors tell you that you’re sick and need an operation, wouldn’t you do something about it?

    10. The future of rap is at stake, did you know?
