Very much in line with my own thinking: "ever since Franklin Roosevelt, liberals have focused on improving the lives of Americans as consumers while substantially ignoring their welfare as producers.” Nice to see this shifting. https://t.co/ZWwlgkviEy

Super cool talk at #scifoo: why grinding up food waste and turning it into compost helps with both sanitation and climate change https://t.co/0r6UrpjClq

I agree with @davidshor’s call for Democratic Party "messaging discipline — in short, to 'talk about popular things that people care about using simple language.’ All of his prescriptions may not be right, but this one surely is. https://t.co/0ga0sxkhVT

Really looking forward to this talk tomorrow. https://t.co/mWRH9RnsSc

The thread on the etymology of "propaganda" from @altadenakatie that @noupside points to here is brilliant. You MUST read it (as well as Renee's article, which it is a commentary on). Here's a sample: https://t.co/gwF8YOxZjX

Climate change will either break our civilization, or lead us to a far better "next economy." @mattyglesias makes a perfect case for the second scenario https://t.co/MOgTuKiTni

“Science doesn't set like concrete, it flows like a river.” Brilliant and ever-so-true observation by @jamesoreilly.

The question of what “progress” means and how to get more of it is one of the biggies, and there’s a lot of food for thought on the topic in this @Noahpinion interview with @rootsofprogress https://t.co/PTBYJZmo2L

Amazon in Search of a Vision, by @tcarmody, makes a lot of sense about the lack of that in Amazon's latest announcements https://t.co/UicGw0kC2L

I always enjoy the monthly roundup of interesting tech links from @mikeloukides https://t.co/RHyzYp7dn7

This isn't a new thought - but @Noahpinion puts it strongly and clearly. Not sure who needs to be convinced, but I hope whomever has the power to do something reads this and does in fact do something... https://t.co/OpeJ5krok8

Ministry For The Future is such an important book, and so thoughtful. This is a very nice interview with Kim Stanley Robinson on his thought process and how science fiction is a kind of reporting. https://t.co/NqE9uy3hQK

This is delightful. (Deleted my original tweet crediting the discovery of this link to @johnauthers, because it in fact came to me via @adam_tooze - both are financial writers with marvelous newsletters who also have impeccable taste in other matters of interest.) https://t.co/f87U3vdF5B

In a little less than an hour, I'll be joining @kaifulee on the @oreillymedia platform for a discussion of his fabulous new book, AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future. https://t.co/kIpmv0IkQK

This sign finally made me research gas prices adjusted for inflation so that I could note gas was more expensive in 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2018.

"Midnight is approaching..." This open letter from political scientists and scholars of democracy puts it starkly. https://t.co/LBXVjQSbk5 via @ThePlumLineGS

Great article by @tomfriedman on the state our response to climate/ecocide: “This is not serious…Serious was how we responded to Covid-19.” & “We need to…invent new technology to slow global warming at warp speed.” Agreed! Thx Tom, for highlighting @planet as an example! 🙏🌍 https://t.co/zNMyZvOZ4m

There are about a dozen German words that can’t be translated into English but are so important that I hope English speakers will start using them. Verschlimmbessern is such a word. The act of making something worse while trying to make it better.

This is true of every executive role too! The higher you get, the less optionality you actually have. You have authority, but using it is expensive (and usually a mistake). And when you do have to choose - it’s always the brutal choices. Never the fun ones. :) https://t.co/eUhoWW8Z9Y

I despair of screaming this into the void, but voters are not primarily responding to inflation, they are responding to a massive, highly coordinated propaganda campaign across multiple media designed to freak them out about inflation.

Tired: Joe Biden increased inflation by 6%. Wired: Joe Biden decreased the value of the national debt by 6%.

Appreciation: Weather forecasts. Freakin magic. So helpful for decisions large and small (like knowing we'd be out of NY just as it would start raining). Brought to you by science and the National Weather Service. Thank you!

There is something terribly wrong with a system that allows 41 Senate Republicans representing 21% of the country to block voting rights legislation supported by nearly 70% of Americans. The filibuster must go.

Next week, I’ll be speaking at the Global Race to Zero Summit. This virtual event will put pressure on governments right before the COP26 climate negotiations and provide a clear pathway forward for governments, citizens and companies Register free here - https://t.co/WLEfEQwBjS
