The Myth of Net-Zero Emissions

BERLIN – The emissions from burning coal, oil, and gas are heating up our planet at such a rapid rate that increasingly volatile and dangerous climate conditions seem almost inevitable. Clearly, we have to reduce emissions fast, while developing alternative energy sources that allow us to leave fossil fuels in the ground.

Ebola and Innovation

BOSTON – Lives are not all that have been lost in the ongoing Ebola crisis. In recent discussions about how to combat the virus, the methodical rigor of science and medicine has given way to hyperbolic politics and public hysteria.

That is to say, the government is not united, and if anyone should dispute this, probably he or she might be living in another country. Had we had  a united government of purpose, i.e., moving in a single direction, the Liberian Government would have, by now, achieved more than anticipated by ordinary Liberians, and the eye-brows currently being raced at our governance process would have been very minimum (even though not everyone would have been pleased with the operations of the government).

A New Direction for Global Health

NEW YORK – It is easy to be discouraged about the state of international cooperation today, but global health remains an area in which the world has come together to do significant good. Over the last dozen years, international initiatives have delivered HIV/AIDS treatment to millions, expanded childhood immunization, and spurred a dramatic increase in global support for addressing other health challenges, from malaria to maternal health.
