I know, Twitter and fun in the same sentence is an oxymoron. But there were some posts that made us proud and others that made us laugh.
Former Ohio Governor John Kasich led with inspiration:
On #EarthDay, let’s appreciate the role we play in being stewards of our environment and do all we can to preserve our environment for future generations. This includes raising the issue of climate change to a higher, more vigorous level of public debate.

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz focused his video climate message on national security warnings from military leaders:
On #EarthDay it’s fair to ask – why do climate change deniers not believe our military? We need a #GreenRealDeal. pic.twitter.com/ZfOq3IeSss

Climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe not only took our what #EcoRight superhero are you quiz, she got herself! (For the record, I got Katharine too after getting John McCain in our beta run.)

Our friend Sarah Hunt from the Rainey Center got the Terminator on the same quiz… ?? ?? ??(we wondered who would…)
I got @Schwarzenegger on quiz ‘Which #EcoRight Superhero Are You?’. What will you get? https://t.co/vDi2pdykdc
