Quoted @Breakthrough

Deploying long-duration energy storage technologies at scale will be critical to avoiding a climate disaster. @LDESCouncil’s inaugural report details how investing in LDES is imperative to the clean energy transition. More:

Accelerating long-duration energy storage innovation can significantly reduce annual CO2 emissions and lay the foundation for a net-zero economy by 2050.

South Africa did the right thing by reporting these cases. They have invested heavily in R&D including genomic sequencing capabilities which have made it possible to quickly identify variants, like Omicron, and help the world respond appropriately.

The @gatesfoundation is supporting GIISER which is working to increase the in-country capacity for rapid evaluation of variants on the African continent. This will help us better understand variants of concern and how the current vaccines may perform.

I think there's perhaps been some confusion regarding transmissibility vs immune escape in Omicron. The apparent rapid increase in frequency of Omicron in Gauteng does not mean that Omicron is necessarily more intrinsically transmissible than Delta. 1/15

Experts like Trevor Bedford have done an excellent job explaining what scientists have learned so far about the new variant of concern known as Omicron.

I made this video a few months ago to help explain what happens when a virus mutates. You can read more about the ways in which new variants are (and aren’t) complicating the pandemic here:

I usually read a lot of non-fiction books, but lately I’ve found myself drawn back to the kinds of novels I would’ve loved as a kid. These were some of my favorites this year:

Which do you like better?

There’s lots of speculation about what Shakespeare’s life was really like, but we do know that his son died at age 11. Hamnet shares the story of how grief tore the Shakespeare family apart.

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with science fiction. But @andyweirauthor’s latest book Project Hail Mary is a fun read even if you aren’t a sci-fi fan. I finished the whole thing in one weekend.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since the 4004 kickstarted the PC era. I still remember reading about its release with Paul and dreaming about how the world's first microprocessor might shape the future.

About 3.6 billion people—nearly half of the world’s population—lack toilets or use unsafe sanitation. This #WorldToiletDay, I’m optimistic this sanitation crisis can be solved.

2021 saw incredible innovation in health and climate. I am excited about many of these advancements and look forward to seeing what’s next.

I love the message in @JohnDoerr’s new book that in order to eliminate the Green Premiums, we need to make a scalable plan now:

Quoted @Breakthrough

“Following the infrastructure bill, Congress must pass the Build Back Better Act to enable solutions that match the scale and urgency of the climate crisis.”
BE’s VP of U.S. Policy & Advocacy Aliya Haq shares why it’s critical to pass Build Back Better:

The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is an important step on America’s path to achieving net-zero emissions. But the job is not done. Congress should also pass the Build Back Better Act to help accelerate development of the climate solutions we need.

What a year it’s been: 2,000+ users from 80 countries, 200+ workspaces, & 30+ datasets available and we’re just getting started! Thank you to the #ADRD research community. Read more from ED, @MaruyamaTetsu: #YearOfADDI

Data sharing and global collaboration move us closer to new #Alzheimers diagnostics, treatments, and cures. I’m optimistic about what lies ahead:

We still have a lot of work to do, but the conversation I heard at the #COP26 climate summit left me feeling optimistic that we can avoid a climate disaster:

Quoted @GatesUS

The new #EquitableValueExplorer tool will help leaders, researchers, and policymakers better serve their students and build more equitable systems in higher ed.

Data on student outcomes can help institutional leaders and policymakers better understand the economic value that colleges deliver to students. This new tool makes that data publicly available—a critical step toward a more equitable higher ed system.

Poverty and the world’s top global health problems are closely connected. By improving one, we can make progress towards fixing the other:
