I don’t know if a half-dozen people have ever done more damage to the planet, to human welfare, to democracy, and to public safety in the course of less than a year.

My favorite 4th July thread. We have to reassert our freedoms. No one should have the β€œliberty” to take away our freedom to live in safety from β€” among so many other things β€” pollution and climate chaos.
This 4th of July we are face to face with the systematic violation of β€œthe preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness.” The common ordinary things that make life worth living are being taken from us with the full support of radical judges & politicians.

On 4th of July 2022, please read this thread. We cannot be apathetic, no matter how tired we are after the past couple years. The US is our country and we have to fight for and protect it!!

Going safely to school, to a parade, to see a fireworks display without a risk of being ravaged by a months long wildfire & exerting the right to vote are all more fundamental to freedom than carrying an AR-15 or polluting the planet.

If we want this country to survive, we cannot fall victim to radical, unbalanced and corporate views of our constitution that masquerade greed as rights & liberties.

Today is not the day to give up. Just as it always has been, today is the day we remember we have to actually fight tyranny & hate to beat it. Today’s enemy is perverting patriotism into something noxious and deadly. No, they can’t have this country.

Many ask: β€œShouldn’t I wait on boost #2 until fall, when a new bivalent (combo of original & Omicron-specific boost) is available? For those over 50, I’d say no – there's too much Covid around and evidence of benefit from boost #2 is persuasive. Pfizer/Moderna are now…(17/25)

Look I know it’s your birthday Monday and normally we have a big fireworks display, but this year you have a lot of thinking to do. Maybe you should start with why there are no fireworks this year and go from there.

I really enjoyed this conversation with @ASlavitt and my wonderful collaborator @OSullivanMeghan on @inthebubblepod about today’s twin energy and climate crises. Take a listen. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcas…
Tomorrow @inthebubblepod has an all new conversation about the fight between lowering gas prices & our climate goals. @JasonBordoff and Meghan O’Sullivan join me. Amazing experts. I was riveted. Drops at 3 am Eastern.

β€œIn the longer term, the things that will make you more resilient to inevitable geopolitical shocks to the oil market are actually using less in the first place.” says CGEP Director @JasonBordoff with @OSullivanMeghan and @ASlavitt on @inthebubblepod. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcas…

To reach our net zero goals by 2050, we need to reduce our carbon emissions by an estimated 8% annually for the next 28 years. @ASlavitt digs into the numbers with @JasonBordoff. Listen: link.chtbl.com/InTheBubble?s…

Today, @JasonBordoff says the long term solution to gas price spikes largely hinges on our ability to become less dependent on oil products in general. He explains how we can do that with @ASlavitt. Listen: link.chtbl.com/InTheBubble?s…

I wanted to know how to connect the dots between the climate crisis, gas & good shortages, inflation@& geopolitics. So I invited 2 experts on @inthebubblepodβ€” @JasonBordoff and @OSullivanMeghan. They are so clear, so factual, so smart. If this interests you, it’s a great convo.
As gas prices soar, @ASlavitt asks: what tradeoffs are we willing to make for relief at the pump? He meets @JasonBordoff and @OSullivanMeghan to hear how different compromises would affect our pocketbooks, global relations, and the planet. Listen: link.chtbl.com/InTheBubble?s…

@OSullivanMeghan and I went on @inthebubblepod to talk all things energy crisis – gas prices, energy transition, OPEC production, and more. Listen below for a fun, wide-ranging discussion:

Great podcast. @michaelmina_lab was great at explaining how and when the rapid test tells you if you are infectious and how we should be using them during Omicron. Learned a lot.
Some people are becoming symptomatic days before COVID tests detect the infection. @michaelmina_lab says that newly symptomatic people should assume they’re infected and infectiousβ€”even if they test negative. Listen w/ @ASlavitt: link.chtbl.com/InTheBubble?s…

COVID symptoms are now appearing much sooner after exposure but still a day or two prior to testing positive. If you have symptoms, isolate and self-test for a day or two; you might be infectious to others!!!
