رئيس الوزراء نتنياهو: أتقدم بخالص التعازي إلى الشعب التشادي إثر وفاة الرئيس إدريس ديبي. سنفتقد إلى زعامته الشجاعة وسنذكر دائما قراره التاريخي باستئناف علاقات تشاد مع دولة إسرائيل. pic.twitter.com/DuY4plTpVT— Ofir Gendelman (@ofirgendelman) April 20, 2021
This could happen. It would be bad. Why? Because science tells us that to have a good chance of staving off really really bad climate impacts, the world needs to halve emissions by 2030. This is absolutely counter to all the net zero talk from capitals and company board rooms twitter.com/fbirol/status/…
Global CO2 emissions are set to jump by 1.5 gigatonnes in 2021 – led by a rebound in coal demand mainly from the power sector.— Fatih Birol (@fbirol) April 20, 2021
It would be the 2nd largest rise in emissions ever. This economic recovery is anything but sustainable for our climate.

Terrific essay, Max. Having worked in #Afghanistsn, I share your concerns while recognizing the impulse to throw ones hands up. A middle ground can protect allies while containing threats - al Qaeda,, human rights abuse, regional stability — within & beyond the country. twitter.com/MaxBoot/status…
It is incongruous for Biden to focus on reviving U.S. alliances while abandoning our allies in Afghanistan.https://t.co/6RvRhwvYNX— Max Boot (@MaxBoot) April 20, 2021
