The deep tragedy of the Dutch corporate tax avoidance system: between 2012 and 2019 Google routed €128bn in royalty payments through NL, potentially costing the US over €30bn in tax revenue. What was the Dutch take from that? A pathetic €25 million!

Israel is opening round-the-clock vaccination centers, and has begun vaccinating its teachers this week.

It’s almost like there’s an… emergency.

Quoted @Tom_LSOO

Are we made to take care of each other? Or is it everyone for themselves? My exploration of human behavior in times of disaster is now live!

If you watch anything this Christmas, take 20 mins to see this. About the power of hope, and why it’s an act of defiance to assume the best in others.

Quoted @_HannahRitchie

To knock fossil fuels out of the energy system, low-carbon technologies have to be cheap

Thankfully renewable costs are falling rapidly

This is the trend that makes me most optimistic about our ability to tackle climate change

@MaxCRoser's latest post:

Great news that lab-grown meat has been given approval in Singapore:

Lab-grown meat now needs to scale & get cheap.

It basically needs to do for food what solar is doing for energy.

Wow. Really overwhelmed with the response to my story about the real 'Lord of the Flies'. So so happy that this extraordinary tale is finally - after 50 years! - becoming famous. Here's a thread (with pictures!) on how I found the 'boys' three years ago /1
