2021 is in the books. I didn’t expect us to start 2022 still in the world of COVID-19. Yet, despite the continuing pandemic, the world had a good year: renewables generated more electricity than fossil fuels in Europe, China defeated malaria, more nations strengthened LGBTQ+ rights, lab-grown meat hit important milestones, and many more. I had a pretty good year too. Off to an even better 2022.
