We have a big opportunity to bring attention to the petrochemical hub development in SW Pennsylvania via Twitter during tonight’s Climate Town Hall. Many people don’t yet connect petrochemicals and fracked plastic with the climate movement, but it’s easy to do! I’ve assembled a few ideas for tweets. Feel free to comment on this blog post with ideas your own. The key is to use the following hashtags and addresses to make sure we connect with new audiences on issues we care about:
TWEET OPTION 1
At @CNN’s #ClimateTownHall we will see Democrats advocate for climate solutions. Meanwhile in SW Pennsylvania, Democrats like @GovernorTomWolf hitch our economic wagon to @realDonaldTrump’s favorite polluter: Shell’s fracked #plastic petrochemical plant. #NoPetroPA @BetterPathPA
TWEET OPTION 2
When we make plastic from fracked #petrochemicals our climate, oceans, health, and democracy suffer. Shell’s fracked plastic plant under construction in Beaver, PA will accelerate all this damage. Food for thought at the @CNN #ClimateTownHall. #NoPetroPA @BetterPathPA
TWEET OPTION 3
It is difficult to slow the #climatecrisis if we don’t also cut single use #fracked #plastic. Fracked methane is filling our atmosphere while plastic is filling our oceans and rivers. And Shell wants more–made in Pennsylvania. @CNN #ClimateTownHall. #NoPetroPA @BetterPathPA
