Reaching net zero will take bold action and creativity, and the first cohort of @btenergy  Energy Fellows makes me optimistic that we can propel a new industrial revolution.

Jenn and Nayel, it’s impossible to put into words how happy it makes me to see you filled with joy on your wedding day. I’m so proud of you both for everything you’ve accomplished in your lives so far and everything you will do with your future together.

By investing in direct air capture, clean hydrogen, long-duration energy storage, and sustainable aviation fuel, we’ll create a new industrial revolution that will power the global clean energy economy:

We’ve done this before. In 2017, the @gatesfoundation  worked with partners and generic suppliers to bring improved HIV therapies to more than 18 million people in lower-income countries.

Everyone deserves equitable access to healthcare. That’s why we engaged partners like @MedsforAll  and @OfficialUoM  to find more affordable, safe materials that generic manufacturers can use to produce medicines at a lower cost.

Our funding is only part of the solution. More donors will need to step up to make sure molnupiravir is available to all as quickly as possible.

The world is so close to ending polio thanks to heroes like Shumaila Rehmani: #WorldPolioDay 

India has administered 1 billion vaccine doses, a testament to India’s innovation, ability to manufacture at scale, and the efforts of millions of health workers backed by CoWIN. Congratulations @narendramodi  @mansukhmandviya  @PMOIndia  @MoHFW_INDIA 

I’ve been binging geography videos lately. I liked this one where Geography King explains several really fascinating quirks of US geography (including why it doesn’t actually rain as much as people think in my hometown).

Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds. Their work is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them. The world needs @WHO  now more than ever.

I’m always amazed by the disconnect between what we see in the news and the reality of the world around us. As my late friend Hans Rosling would say, we must fight the fear instinct that distorts our perspective:

It’s great to see India’s leadership in scientific innovation and vaccine manufacturing capability as the world works to end the COVID-19 pandemic @PMOIndia 

People all over the world are already being affected by a warmer world. What should the plan to address climate change look like? I write about two key strategies in this year’s annual letter.

For those of us lucky enough to get to work with Steve, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

Congratulations @narendramodi  on the national launch of Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission. This digital health infrastructure will help ensure equitable, accessible healthcare delivery and accelerate progress on India’s health goals. @PMOIndia  @MoHFW_INDIA 

I hate mosquitoes. The diseases they spread kill more than half a million people every year. In fact, mosquitoes kill more people in one day than sharks kill in 100 years: #WorldMosquitoDay

Congratulations @narendramodi  on a remarkable win in #IndianElections2019 . Your continued commitment to improve health, nutrition, and development will significantly improve lives of many. @BJP4India
