Quoted @GaviSeth

Congratulations Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana for administering the first shipment of African  #COVAX vaccine doses! These are the first of many to protect frontline & health care workers around the world & marks another incredible victory for equitable access: 

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.

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.

Quoted @FinancialTimes

Are there things businesses can do to make a measurable difference for the climate? @Billgates thinks so. ‘But they will not come easily’ he warns in his green manifesto, published on @FTlifearts:

Meaningful action from business leaders will require the courage to take risks that many companies aren't used to taking.

Today, America is officially back in the Paris Climate Agreement. Let’s get to work.

Great to see this important step as the United States resumes our global leadership on climate change. Looking forward to working with @POTUS and Congress on a plan to ensure we reach net zero by 2050.

The Weekly Planet: Lately, Bill Gates has been thinking about what he calls the “hard stuff” of climate change. These hard problems are at the center of Gates’s helpful new book, "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster," @yayitsrob writes:

To avoid a climate disaster, we need to eliminate emissions from the ways we create electricity, grow food, make things, move around, and heat and cool our buildings. It won’t be easy, but I believe we can do it. This book is about what it will take.
