Super proud of the insanely bonkers lithium extraction technology from @Lilac_Solutions –the key insight here is that the electrified economy just doesn't happen without a shit-ton more batteries and at @lowercarbon we're thrilled to partner with these guys to make it happen!…

The electrified economy can’t happen without a metric shit-ton of batteries, and lithium is the very best element for powering those. So, both as early investors, and fellow humans in the midst of a climate emergency, we are so grateful for this team. 🙌🏼
When we raised the @lowercarbon funds, we consistently cited @dsnydacker and Lilac as the kind of folks that are changing everything. They mine 2x more lithium, 10,000 times faster(!), and using 99% less land and 90% less water than anyone else in the industry. Absolutely nuts.
Huge day for our badass company, @Lilac_Solutions. Proud to co-lead a $150m round with our friends at T. Rowe.…

This is an extra thoughtful piece about a question we spend a lot of time thinking about @lowercarbon, how startups working on CO2 removal (either as a main line of business or a future option) can scale in the absence of a high price on carbon?…

It's disheartening to see so many people working their asses off on climate and yet this White House signs off on clear cutting an old-growth rainforest right here in the USA. Yep, the WH has given the greenlight to destroy multiple square miles of the Yaak Valley. 🧵i

Want to do something to save the Yaak Valley and help us all move the climate needle in the right direction? Make a little noise, call your reps, and definitely drop a note to Sec. Tom Vilsack who could stop all of this with the stroke of a pen: [email protected] Thanks.
I am grateful for the work being done at the White House and in Congress to make healing the planet a priority. It's real and sincere. But own-goals like cutting down American rainforests are infuriating. It would be so f'ing easy to fix this.
Want to read more about this? Start here, but warning, you'll feel angry to how easy it would be for this administration to reverse this decision and how clearly they have chosen not to do so:…
Seriously, we can and should log forests. Not only do we need wood and paper, responsible logging can prevent severe fire. But the worst idea is to go after the oldest and most unique forests in the country. You know, the ones actually helping solve the climate emergency? WTF.
I am sure some in the WH itself are going to be pissed that I am calling them out. But, trying to help fix this quietly hasn't worked. They have a 3 Line/Keystone situation brewing over some stupid lumber board feet that should come out of a homogenous forest anyway.
So when Biden won the election, it seemed inevitable that so much of the reckless and spiteful policies of the prior 4 years would be undone. Sure, many thankfully have. But, for this current White House to press ahead with wrecking this forest is just boggling.
When this decision was first handed down by Trump, who @billmckibben says considered forests "the place your golf ball goes when you slice," it was clearly illegal. So, @crystale and I personally funded a lawsuit to fight the decision and hopefully buy some time for a new WH.
It's absolutely embarrassing to be heading into global climate talks trying to lean on other countries to do their part while doing the exact opposite back here at home. "Y'all should keep your trees while we haul away our biggest on trucks." is not a great talking point.
In addition to those of us concerned by the climate emergency, Native/First Nations communities are strongly opposed to the destructive logging that the WH has signed off on:…
Besides the vital importance of the carbon sequestered in those forests, and the endangered species that live there, we know that old growth forests are what protect us against the most severe wildfires.
Here we are learning hard truths about resilient forests and trees' carbon storage, yet we're going to destroy one of the country's most unique and valuable ecosystems. We get angry at Brazil for allowing destruction of the Amazon rainforest, but we are doing the same damn thing!
The Black Ram Project clearcut of the Yaak Valley was illegally rushed through approval during the Trump administration as a bullshit giveaway to big business. This indiscriminate logging includes trees that are literally 600 to 800 years old. Absolute climate denier insanity.

Saw the photos and had to go see it myself. More than 670,000 white flags are flying on the National Mall memorializing victims of the pandemic. They’ll be out here through October. Stunning and tremendously powerful, sparkling in the evening sunlight.

The most underrated climate tech is fusion. I keep hearing "it's decades off, won't be as cheap as solar, we just don't need it." It's closer than you think. And when it arrives, limitless, CO2-free, around-the-clock power will be a step function improvement for civilization.
