I was honored to speak at today’s #LeadersClimateSummit about the three things we need to do to avoid a climate disaster.
Ambitious short-term goals like this are critical to moving closer to a net-zero future. As we rapidly scale the solutions we have, we must also invest in innovation to reach our ultimate goals. Thank you @POTUS for your leadership.
It’s encouraging to see @POTUS Biden and @ClimateEnvoy Kerry re-establish America’s leading role on climate change. I look forward to joining leaders from around the world to talk about some of the most important challenges we need to overcome to avoid a climate disaster.…
Yesterday's verdict was a step in the right direction. But one court ruling alone will not bring to an end the injustice and inequity that Black people experience daily. I hope we will continue to make real progress on this.
“Time” is a poetic portrait of a family who love and support each other despite their difficult circumstances. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
If “Time” wins the Oscar this year, it will be the first documentary directed by a Black woman to do so. Garrett Bradley’s talent makes her worthy of that milestone. This is one of the most intimate movies I have ever seen. #itsTIME
Communities of color have been hit hard by COVID-19. One of the reasons why parts of the medical system often fail Black and brown people is because it’s not designed with them in mind. Dr. Stephaun Wallace wants to change that.…
In February, Ghana became the first African country to receive vaccines through #COVAX. Meet one of the nurses spearheading the vaccination effort:

To get to net-zero emissions globally by 2050, leaders from around the world must work together. It’s encouraging to see governments, business leaders, and financial institutions committing to a successful COP26 in Glasgow later this year.
Dr. Stephaun Wallace (@imstephaunelite) has spent the last year helping make COVID-19 vaccines work for everybody. Stephaun and his colleagues at @fredhutch are working to reach the people who are usually left behind.
The amount of cement China has consumed is a staggering statistic and reminder of how much emissions have grown in low- and middle-income countries. (Minecraft concrete doesn’t count, though server farms are responsible for a lot of emissions.)…
Cement is responsible for 6% of carbon emissions globally. To get to net-zero by 2050, we need innovations to decarbonize the material. I discuss a few approaches to make low-emission cement in my climate book:

The best way to prevent new variants from emerging is by stopping transmission of the virus altogether:
It's encouraging to see innovation and clean energy investments at the forefront of @POTUS's #AmericanJobsPlan. Building markets for new energy technologies is good for jobs today and will build the economies we need while avoiding a climate disaster.
Here are five things you should know if you want to understand how variants are (and aren’t) complicating the pandemic.

The technological transformation we need to address climate change can create good, safe jobs and build a more equitable, prosperous economy. To make that happen, we need to think big:
I had a great time answering questions about my new book, climate change, and COVID-19 on @reddit last week. Here’s a recap of the conversation.
It's #WorldTBDay Even as we battle #COVID19, we must not ease up the fight against #Tuberculosis, which remains the 🌎🌍🌏’s deadliest infectious killer. Each day this preventable & curable disease causes: 🔸>4000 deaths 🔸~28000 new cases

I’m answering your questions now on @reddit:
In this video, I answered some really good questions, including one about two really important numbers. Come ask me some questions of your own on @reddit at 11:15:
After you finish your pancakes this morning, come ask me anything on @reddit at 11:15 Pacific Time:
It’s deeply unfair that the people who contribute the least to climate change will suffer the worst from its effects:

I named my book “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster,” not “How to Stop Climate Change,” because our climate is already changing—and no one will be hurt more by climate change than the world’s poorest people. Here's how we can help them adapt.
Congratulations @AndrewSteerWRI on this important role. I’m excited to see what you and the Earth Fund will achieve. Avoiding a climate disaster is going to take all of us, and I’m grateful for @JeffBezos’s leadership and partnership.…
Thank you @salkhanacademy for a great conversation about climate change and thanks to @BookPeople and @BlueWillowBooks for hosting the event.
For decades, Australian researcher Ruth Bishop led global efforts to identify and combat rotavirus. Her life is a reminder of the importance of scientific research to uncover unknown pathogens and the power of vaccines to prevent suffering and save lives.
Speaking from villages, riverbanks and rural clinics, frontline health workers and malaria volunteers share stories of what it took to eliminate malaria in El Salvador, and how they plan to keep their country #MalariaFree in the long term. #EndMalaria

Virologist Ruth Bishop pioneered the research that led to the discovery of rotavirus. Her legacy continues both as a role model for other researchers and in the millions of children’s lives that have been saved because of her heroic work: #IWD2021
On International Women’s Day, join me in celebrating some of the inspiring women who made #COVID19 vaccines possible. Know their names and the work they’ve done to get us to this point. Drumroll please...🥁#IWD20211

Thank you @BarackObama for the kind words. Your leadership at the 2015 Paris climate conference helped prove that global cooperation on climate is possible and gives me hope that we can reach our goal of zero emissions.…
Black folks have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine. I sat down w/ Black healthcare workers & they answered my questions. THE CONVERSATION: #BetweenUsAboutUs! Produced by @BCAgainstCOVID @greaterthanCV19 @KFF & @RheaBoydMD! 50 FAQ more videos here.

Moving to a green economy is the biggest challenge the world has ever faced. I’m optimistic we can do it, but need to make sure it benefits everyone—including those workers and communities who depend on the fossil fuels that we need to get rid of.
We can’t avoid a climate disaster without corporate leaders making courageous decisions now. I hope to work with @VWGroup on building the markets for the clean technologies the world needs. Thank you for the kind words, Herbert.…
Delivering vaccines to those who need them most, no matter where they live or how much money they have, is the only way to end the pandemic and begin the recovery. This is an important milestone.…
We're fortunate to have an Energy Secretary who's focused on creating high-quality jobs to build a clean energy economy. I look forward to working with @SecGranholm on clean tech innovation and deployment.
Recent extreme weather events are a stark reminder that we’re already seeing the effects of climate change here at home and around the world. This type of observation system will help scientists monitor and predict future weather events.
Thanks @kwelkernbc and @JCCAtlanta for a great conversation about how we can avoid a climate disaster.
I’m looking forward to joining @andrewrsorkin to talk about climate change, our foundation’s work in response to the pandemic, and more.…
It’s encouraging to have @ClimateEnvoy John Kerry representing the U.S. to the world. Now that we've rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, it's going to take ambitious action from U.S. leaders and those around the globe to avoid a climate disaster.
There are several ways individuals can help move us closer to a zero-carbon future. Here are a few:
Thanks @JudyWoodruff and @NewsHour for having me on the show to talk about climate change and COVID-19 – two urgent global issues that need global collaboration.
I’m grateful for new commitments from the EU, Germany, Canada, Japan, and the U.S. to help make safe and effective COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines available to people around the world. Thanks to the #G7 and @ACTAccelerator for their leadership.

I’m inspired by @DonCheadle’s activism and humanitarian work. Thanks to @lawacthevents and @writersblocla for hosting our discussion about climate change and how everyone can help.
Meaningful action from business leaders will require the courage to take risks that many companies aren't used to taking.…
Thanks to @andersoncooper, @SeaArtsLectures, and everyone who joined our virtual conversation about climate change. Great to have so much support from my hometown for this important work.
