Solving climate change is the hardest challenge humanity has ever faced but this would be a historic step forward. It represents our best chance to build an energy future in America that is cleaner, cheaper, and more secure. Let’s get it done.
I've long admired his courage to ask tough questions and answer them in a way that is direct and entertaining. John’s new project, working to support maternal health, is worth checking out.
I never thought of fighting poverty and disease as decreasing “world suck” and increasing awesome, but during our trip to Africa, @johngreen convinced me that it’s as good a description as any other.
We cannot look away from the impact climate change is already having on the most vulnerable.
Jerad taught me how to make my own deerskin medicine bag while he explained the deeper meaning behind a Native tradition that goes back thousands of years.
It’s more important than ever that we understand how climate change will worsen existing health disparities. That’s why I’m thrilled to work with @BillGates, @GatesNotes and @OERProject to educate children about the inequalities of climate change:

Jerad Koepp is the first Native educator to receive the Washington State Teacher of the Year award. I hope you’re as inspired by his work as I am.
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is a historic step that will move the U.S. closer to its climate and energy security goals. Congress must take swift action and turn this into law. Read our analysis on its significance for the clean energy transition:

There’s never been a more important time to support teachers. @OERProject's goal is to empower them with free innovative curriculum and teaching tools:
I’m inspired by Jerad’s commitment to helping Native students embrace their culture and make the most of their talents. #backtoschool
Win or lose, I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer day than as a Pickler.
Spending time with my best friend Warren never gets old. I’d flip Blizzards with you any day.
During #AIDS2022, we're celebrating @GlobalFund partnerships that have helped cut AIDS-related deaths by 65%. But the fight isn’t over. Investing in the Global Fund can help save 20 million more lives by 2026 and help prevent the next pandemic.
We're announcing the second phase of @TheADDF’s diagnostics accelerator. I’m hopeful that this new phase will make advances that help change the course of Alzheimer’s.
Now, we need Congress to act quickly. I’m optimistic the U.S. can deliver on a clean energy future, but there’s no time to waste.
Really excited to see Senators Schumer and Manchin come together in what could be a historic step forward for the climate.…
.@BenJohns_pb any tips for my form?
Fifty years ago, I started playing this little-known sport with a funny name. Now it’s all the rage.
Hey @Discovery, sharks are cool, but mosquitoes are deadly. Did you know mosquitoes kill more people in one day than sharks kill in 100 years?…
From Malawi to the United States, new cases of polio are a reminder that until we #EndPolio for good, it remains a threat to all of us.
This is heartbreaking. The world had made so much progress before COVID. There’s a lot of work ahead to get back to, and eventually exceed, pre-pandemic vaccination levels.
Congratulations @narendramodi for yet another milestone of administering #200crorevaccinations. We are grateful for our continued partnership with Indian vaccine manufacturers and the Indian government for mitigating the impact of COVID19.
Mr. Mandela exemplified how we can fight for progress, diminish stigmas, and spread hope. He played a crucial role in the progress we have made so far against HIV/AIDs. I will never forget the example that he set.
This is one of my favorite photos ever. My dad, Mr. Mandela, and President Jimmy Carter hold infants born with HIV to dismiss the fear and stigma around touching people who live with the disease.
Nelson Mandela's legacy lives on as a reminder that it’s possible to solve big challenges. I admired President Mandela for his courage to stand against apartheid and I came to know him personally for the fight against HIV/AIDs.
Who better to recruit the next generation of clean tech innovators than Iron Man?
If we had stopped the COVID pandemic in less than 100 days, we could’ve saved over 98% of the lives lost. Here’s how we can prevent it from happening again:
I have an obligation to return my resources to society in ways that have the greatest impact for reducing suffering and improving lives. And I hope others in positions of great wealth and privilege will step up in this moment too.
As I look to the future, I plan to give virtually all of my wealth to the foundation. I will move down and eventually off of the list of the world’s richest people.
Although the foundation bears our names, basically half our resources have come from Warren Buffett. His incredible generosity is a huge reason why the foundation has been able to be so ambitious. I can never adequately express how much I appreciate his friendship and guidance.
With the support and guidance of our board, we plan to increase our spending from nearly $6 billion per year today to $9 billion per year by 2026. To help make this spending increase possible, I am transferring $20 billion to the foundation’s endowment this month.
I am very proud of the foundation’s role in helping solve big problems like preventing pandemics, reducing childhood deaths, eradicating diseases, improving food security and climate adaptation, achieving gender equality, and improving educational
Melinda and I started the @gatesfoundation in 2000 because we believed that every person should have the chance to live a healthy and productive life. That vision remains the same, but the great crises of our time require all of us to do more.
But I’m still optimistic. These setbacks are happening in the context of two decades’ worth of historic progress and I believe it is possible to mitigate the damage and get back to the progress the world was making.
The pandemic is one of the biggest setbacks in history. The war on Ukraine is a gigantic tragedy for the entire world. The damage from climate change is already worse than most models predicted. The U.S. has taken a huge step backwards for gender equality and women’s health.
Several huge global setbacks over the past few years have left many people discouraged and wondering whether the world is destined to get worse.
When I was 13, computer science changed the course of my life. I was really lucky to have access to a computer that early on. I hope this initiative will give every student the same opportunity.…
Fusion will need to be an important part of our zero-emissions future. That’s why the work that @energy_zap does is so exciting.
If you’re a big tennis fan like I am, @devisridhar’s profile on Althea Gibson is a grand slam. She was the first Black player to win Wimbledon.
Prime Minister Abe was a friend and partner of our foundation who helped save lives around the world by championing universal health coverage and programs like the Global Fund. I’m shocked and saddened by his death.
Happy 10th birthday to CRISPR, one of the most important inventions in medicine, biology, and agriculture.
.@amortowles is one of my favorite storytellers. I was wowed by his writing in The Lincoln Highway.
“It’s also a reminder that it’s not just about having enough vaccines or therapeutics. It’s about figuring out how to help countries deploy them.” @ashishkjha
I got to join the @Breakthrough team to talk about the incredible work they’re doing to accelerate climate innovation. I’m lucky to work with such smart and dedicated individuals.
Today’s ruling makes it more challenging for the US to hit its climate goals. It’s now more important than ever for Congress to level the playing field for clean technologies.
Being in New York is always fun – you never know who you’ll run into. It was great meeting you and Namrata!…
Here’s progress worth celebrating. More people have bank accounts than ever before:
It’s great to see countries and partners jointly sign the Kigali Declaration. It wouldn't have been possible without Kigali Summit hosts @RwandaGov, @CombatNTDs & @endmalaria, @WHO facilitators & key donors like President @MohamedBinZayed whose commitment help advance the fight.
1.7 billion people are affected by debilitating Neglected Tropical Diseases. Thankfully, an extraordinary public private partnership, and the donation of over 14 billion drugs, has meant that we're a step closer to a future where NTDs are #NeglectedNoMore.…
