Wow, this is an absolute game changer. There's now a mRNA vaccine in the works for malaria. Huge, huge news for Africa. 💚

There's now also new mRNA vaccines in the works for HIV, influenza & certain types of heart disease and cancer. Covid has been unreservedly awful. But there is a glimmer of hope that this specific technological development will entirely change the world.

Mark Gallogly is joining Biden's climate team — a person who personally worsened Puerto Rico's debt crisis and made the recovery from Hurricane Maria harder. This is a serious dent in Biden's claim to prioritize climate justice.

Last year at this time, 2% of the United States was in severe drought. Now, it's 31%. Snowpack in the California mountains is half of normal. This is shaping up to be another disastrous fire season for nearly the entire West.

The Earth is now passing 417ppm of CO2, as measured by the @Keeling_curve  — beating the record from May 2020 for the highest atmospheric carbon dioxide in human history. The last time CO2 was this high was more than 2.6 million years ago. We are in a climate emergency.

Having worked at @grist , I know the rigor and attention it takes to assemble the #Grist50  every year. Looking through this year's list brings me hope that we are much closer to our dreams than it feels. These are people who are building a better world.

these are the libertarian nerds who are currently torching our planet's clean-energy future for fun and profit. by any definition, they are some of the most violent people on Earth – putting vulnerable and marginalized people's lives at risk for their own wealth.

We've officially crossed over to 418ppm, the highest atmospheric carbon dioxide levels in millions of years — before the pyramids, before the ice age, before modern humans existed. Humanity has never experienced our planet like this. We are in a climate emergency.

Hurricane Irma is so strong it's starting to show up on seismometers in the Caribbean -- equipment designed to measure earthquakes.

Meanwhile, on the hottest day in the history of France, here’s shocking video of police spraying tear gas in the faces of climate activists in Paris. This happened today. Do not look away.

Day 31: 84% of Puerto Rico is w/o power 28% w/o running water Yesterday, a surgery was conducted by cellphone light. An affront to humanity.

87°F just south of the Arctic Circle in Finland today. Folks, you may think that this is not normal and you'd be right

This week, 40 billion tons of ice will melt in Greenland as the European heat wave moves north -- enough to measurably raise global sea levels. This single heat wave will create a permanent change in our oceans that will linger for millennia. We are in a climate emergency.

Please remember: What is happening in Texas + California is voter suppression and it is intentional. No one should have to wait two or three hours to vote. Voter suppression disproportionately disenfranchises working class voters.
