And this is my favorite, from a Tufts climate police exec: “The irony is it should be coming from existing utilities, but generally speaking they have been very resistant.” Dinosaurs burning dinosaurs, the asteroid is coming.
"The company has said it aims to reach net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050. While many businesses have the same target, Exxon and Chevron have not set similarly ambitious climate goals."
How we survive: Cheapest electrons on the planet, competition for energy, recalcitrant US oil giants and local utilities. The companies ready to disrupt themselves can come in for the win, and Shell is doing it in Texas.…

So, hear me out. Was the pandemic the best argument for universal basic income we've seen in our lifetimes?…
Congrats to @karaswisher and @TaylorLorenz and anyone brave enough to see their bright light and want to make their own way. The Rebellion of the Talent is a fun ride to be on! #founderspirit
It was my fault for not realizing then that I probably should have. I've worked for companies that were happy to let me be an INtrapreneur and never own a thing. It was my mistake not to see it sooner. But their mistake will keep producing talent brain drain until they see it.
When I was writing and taping the Buzz Report back at CNET in 2005 and 2006 (which yes, I created), are used to jokingly ask why I was working so hard when I could be on this new thing called YouTube falling off a chair and getting millions of views.
Media does not necessarily produce the same returns as Uber, but brands and talent DO have real monetary value -- look only to Hollywood and the creator economy to see that.
I *created* How We Survive and Make Me Smart. I created the video series and column concept I did at NYT. I created Always On at CNET -- hell, I wrote a business plan for it. @acedtect and I created Buzz Out Loud and benefit from it still in love and incremental Patreon $$.
Now that I work with founders, and yes, full disclosure, left media for a lot of these same reasons, I've been thinking a lot about product and value creation. Creativity is a product and it creates value.…

Update: there were apparently TWO overnight. Chattanooga and Philly. But really, the tweet above is pretty evergreen.

This headline from the @latimes isn't just blatantly false and misleading; it's also the result of a years-long propaganda campaign by the fossil fuel industry to halt progress on climate change. Thread:

Yes, and great resources from Tim, too. Nothing alone is enough. We need everything.…
LET'S GOOO this day is even getting better!…
Friday positivity dump? I am having the best day. I love this job. I have talked with three founders today, two of whom are PORTFOLIO COS, in order to be useful, offer advice and guidance, and hopefully help them build something wonderful and successful. This feels amazing!
JUST IN: The US economy added 390,000 jobs in May – beating expectations and showing how strong the job market remains (though it was a bit below 436,000 from April). The unemployment rate remained at 3.6%. Overall, ~96% of jobs lost in the crisis are back.

Amazing. Let's overfund and whatever you're good at, get organized and go. There is a playbook, people.…
"There is no conversation to have." Children are slaughtered in classrooms REGULARLY and this is the response. Like ... this shouldn't be hard to win.…
See? They want to get rid of voting rather than have universal background checks. Doing the marketing for me.…
The other thing MADD did really well was make it socially unacceptable to drive drunk. There's a huge framing component here. Like we need to use this money to seize the narrative away from some sort of American right to weapons of mass murder and more toward, have you no decency
"Overfund" is an excellent word. And a good reminder that the NRA and the GOP don't have some magic spell that no one can possibly replicate. It's money. The point is money.…
What else? And more importantly, let's go. We know how our political system works in this country. USE IT.
Lead divestment campaigns against public gun companies whose weapons are used in mass shootings. Obviously lobbying and advocacy for the gun restrictions the vast majority of Americans actually SUPPORT.
Establish a pool of money for gun buybacks.…
Some ideas: target politicians who receive donations from the NRA and just flat out up the bid. $100k more than they're offering, maybe more if they promise not to take NRA money.
Let's talk solutions. Yesterday on @TWiStartups, @Jason and I brainstormed a new lobbying org. Parents for Responsible Gun Ownership to replace. In the spirit of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, one of the most effective US campaigns, it's about changing an unacceptable status quo.
we are reaching a real breaking point: pandemic fatigue, inflation, a housing crisis, the narrowing of women’s rights, mass shootings. all this (and much more) as a conservative SCOTUS remaps every progressive law. and with no time to properly process because we are busy working

Oh heeeeyyy we JUST. KEEP. DISCUSSING. THIS. Still having that problem connecting to the car, too! My theory? @Apple is deprecating our experience on purpose so we won't get mad when they introduce a proprietary standard to replace Bluetooth. Prove me wrong, I beg you.…

What can you do about the climate crisis? I always start with 1 word: vote. Well TURNS OUT! The potential emissions reduction "is higher than most individual lifestyle decisions that the average person has the opportunity to make."…
Couldn't agree more ... I am so honored that Freedom is my first founder! Hear her interview here.……

I loved this convo with Action Jack @jackmallers, keep an eye on this guy. For real.…
The two climate impacts that terrify me most are extreme humid heat and global food scarcity. I've been feeling this and saying it for years, but it's intensifying faster than I expected.
