“We fundamentally need the fossil fuel industry to disappear,” says climate change expert @MichaelEMann, but in a managed, responsible way. In the meantime, one key move the Biden administration can make is to do away with the “crazy” subsidies that fossil fuel companies receive. https://t.co/oR1TfyRqUq
To combat the climate crisis, making our own lifestyles more sustainable is important, says @MichaelEMann – but “what we can’t allow is for fossil fuel interests to make it seem like that alone is the solution, in their effort to deflect attention from the needed policies.” https://t.co/FVE5qptWr3
How should Biden respond Russia's detention of Alexey Navalny? Fmr Defense Department official @EvelynNFarkas argues “you have to speak directly to them,” but also pursue sanctions: “They are valuable in terms of exacting a price and they also actually help buoy the opposition.” https://t.co/GhGBcUQ7yN

Larry King was a giant of broadcasting and a master of the TV celebrity/statesman-woman interview.
His name is synonymous with CNN and he was vital to the network’s ascent. EVERYONE wanted to be on Larry King Live. May he Rest in Peace.
Gamal Helal was involved in past US attempts to find a solution between Israel and Palestine.

Documentary 'The Human Factor' brings together key players who attempted to broker a deal between Israel and Palestine. @aarondmiller2 was central to US efforts and says mistakes were made: "We should have been a lawyer for both sides, our client needed to be the agreement." https://t.co/qU9TDjUAO8
The wounds of Ireland's past were reopened when a shocking report outlined abuses in Mother and Baby homes that were run by the Church. PM @MichealMartinTD has issued an apology and tells me the report reflected "a perverse moral code and perverse attitude toward sexuality." https://t.co/SSKzwahYj2
Ireland went from some of the lowest Covid numbers in Europe to the world's highest infection rate. What happened? @MichealMartinTD says opening up over Christmas led to a "significant spike" and the UK variant of the virus has "driven numbers. It's now up to 62% of all cases." https://t.co/cKgqnQV8Ru
There have been a few sons of Eire in the Oval Office but none more proud than the current occupant. What do the Irish people think of him?

.@RepAdamSchiff made the case to convict President Trump in his first impeachment. His case for a conviction this time around? "He will seek to cheat in the next election, he will lie about the next election, and he may very well lead another insurrection after the next election" https://t.co/lmaA4bj1Tw
NATO Secretary-General @jensstoltenberg remained diplomatic through a tumultuous Trump Presidency but admits now that "at times it was tough and challenging."
As he told me, President Biden represents a "new chapter" in rebuilding the Transatlantic alliance. https://t.co/zdDwFp45DQ
