Here's what we've seen over the past two weeks.

Hurricane Harvey's rains displaced millions and left parts of Texas and Louisiana underwater for days. Hurricane Irma -- a storm whose historic magnitude was worsened by unusually warm water -- struck, and millions of families are still picking up the pieces. Wildfires continue to burn across western states.

"Mind-blowing" rainfall totals. Millions evacuated. Cities choked with smoke. All in the span of two weeks, during the second-hottest year ever recorded on Earth.

These are devastating disasters. But we can't keep pretending it's all a coincidence.

The overwhelming majority of climate scientists -- 97 percent of them -- have been telling us for years that climate change is real and man-made. We are starting to see what that means right now: It's making these events worse, threatening our communities and people's lives.

Most of us have heard these warnings loud and clear, as a majority of Americans want our country to lead the way and take aggressive action on climate change. That news hasn't made its way to the White House, though. In nine months, here's the administration's climate "action":
  • They announced our country's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, breaking our promise to nearly every nation in the world that we'd join together to cut carbon pollution and fight climate change.

  • They're cutting the EPA, proposing massive budget cuts, and lowering staff levels -- public servants and nonpartisan scientists who just want to help protect our climate and public health -- to what they were in the 1980s.

  • They announced plans to revoke the Clean Power Plan, common-sense standards that speed up our transition to clean energy and limit the carbon pollution that causes climate change.
We can stop climate change. But this administration and their rubber stamps in Congress clearly care more about big polluters, donors, and lobbyists than they do about our climate and public health. So much so that they're willing to ignore what's happening right in front of our noses. We deserve better.

These disasters have brought out the best in the American people -- whether it's neighbors checking in on neighbors, volunteers in boats coming to the rescue, or someone from across the country donating to relief efforts. Events like these should bring out the best in our politicians, too.

The Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill could rip health care away from millions, cause costs and premiums to skyrocket, and end Medicaid as we know it. Call Congress right now.

The Senate is voting to repeal Obamacare within the next two weeks.
