And while COVID-19 will rightfully continue to dominate the agenda, the United States also has the opportunity to lead the world in avoiding a climate disaster. The President is taking a great first step by rejoining the Paris Climate Accord.

Here are four other ways that America can advance its leadership on climate change this year and put the world on a path to zero emissions by 2050:

One of the benefits of being 65 is that I’m eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. I got my first dose this week, and I feel great. Thank you to all of the scientists, trial participants, regulators, and frontline healthcare workers who got us to this point.

Humbled and excited to serve as WH science advisor for President-elect @JoeBiden. He has assembled a diverse team of brilliant scientists and is elevating the role of science. So much to be done, and it will take everyone working together. #Scienceisback!

It’s great to see President Biden elevate science leadership to a cabinet-level position. Congratulations @eric_lander.

The President’s commitment to reengage with the world gives me hope that the recovery will reach everyone, including communities of color in the U.S. and people in poor countries around the world.

With Americans across the country working together, more people get a COVID-19 vaccine every day, bringing us closer to a time when life will look much more like normal. Until then, we can slow the spread of the virus and save lives by continuing to distance and wear masks.

I look forward to working with President @JoeBiden and Vice President @KamalaHarris to tackle some of our toughest challenges like COVID-19 and climate change. This has been a troubling time in America, but I see promise in the months and years ahead.

#MLKDay has long been a national day of service. As we celebrate the first without Congressman John Lewis, I'm thinking about his powerful call to remain hopeful about the future as we work to make our country—and our world—a better place.

I believe that women can be the architects of a better world.

Their stories have instilled in me both a sense of urgency and of possibility. I hope they do the same for you.

The paperback edition of The #MomentofLift is out today with a new afterword.

I've been reaching out to many of the people who supported Airbnb in our earliest days to say thanks. While there are a number of people who believed in us, without Ron Conway, Airbnb wouldn't be what it is today.

I've known and learned from @RonConway for more than 40 years. I'm glad to see @svangel team up with @bchesky to mentor and support companies working to create more economic empowerment opportunities for people across the world.

This book has nothing to do with viruses or pandemics. But it is surprisingly relevant for these times. @exlarson provides a brilliant and gripping account of another era of widespread anxiety: the years 1940 and 1941.

Monoclonal antibodies are one of the most promising treatments we have for COVID-19, thanks in large part to R&D by Canadian scientists. Because of their generosity, people all around the world will have access to this potentially lifesaving treatment.

Like many people, I’ve tried to deepen my understanding of systemic racism in recent months. If you’re interested in learning more about the lives caught up in our country's justice system, I highly recommend @thenewjimcrow by Michelle Alexander.
