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.

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.

Brilliant to speak to @BillGates this evening about how we can take actions to fight climate change

Delighted by his support for #COP26 and look forward to continuing the conversation in the lead up to Glasgow

Thank you, @AlokSharma_RDG. We have a lot of work ahead of us to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 and avoid a climate disaster. Your leadership of #COP26 is critical. Thanks also to @howtoacademy, @penguinlive and @Waterstones for hosting the London stop of my virtual book tour!

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:

At Breakthrough Energy, we don’t just think about how to get to zero. We help make it happen. Working at the intersection of policy, technology, and markets, we’re committed to scaling the innovations we need to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

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.
