US Senate confirms Linda Thomas-Greenfield’s nomination as US ambassador to UN



The US Senate on February 23, 2021 confirmed Linda Thomas-Greenfield as US ambassador to the United Nations. Greenfield’s name was nominated for the post by US President Joe Biden.

The Senate voted 78-20 to confirm Thomas-Greenfield for the Cabinet-level position. Greenfield is the eighth confirmed member of President Joe Biden’s Cabinet.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield is a US diplomat with vast experience in Africa. She is a three-decade veteran of the US State Department. 

Key Highlights 

•  Linda Thomas-Greenfield is exceptionally qualified and in her new role, she will have to work to rebuild America’s reputation and reasserting the first instrument of American power and diplomacy. 

•  Her appointment comes as the Biden administration is taking steps to reassert the US position within the United Nations by reversing policy decisions taken by former President Trump’s administration, which left the US isolated globally. 

•  Her appointment also comes at a time when the US is rallying allies to push back against the military coup in Myanmar and amid the Biden administration’s renewed push for diplomacy to resolve the Yemeni civil war. 

•  However, Greenfield’s biggest task will be asserting US leadership and uniting allies to confront China’s influence and ambitions at the global body.

About Linda Thomas-Greenfield

•  Linda Thomas-Greenfield is a retired foreign service veteran, who had resigned during the Trump administration.

•  She will be the third African-American and the second African American woman to hold the post of UN ambassador to the UN. 

•  Greenfield is expected to work with international partners to confront their collective challenges head-on and play an active role in ensuring that the United Nations evolves with the demands of the era. 

Following her confirmation to the post, Thomas-Greenfield made it clear that there would be a change under Biden to re-engage internationally and promote American values.

She stressed that US leadership must be rooted in the country’s core values — “support for democracy, respect for universal human rights and the promotion of peace and security.” 

She added saying that effective diplomacy means developing “robust relationships,” finding common ground and managing differences, and “doing genuine, old-fashioned, people-to-people diplomacy.”

Israel doles out small batches of vaccine as diplomatic perks



“Over the past month, a limited quantity of unused vaccines was accumulated; therefore, it has been decided to assist Palestinian Authority medical teams and several of the countries that contacted Israel with a symbolic quantity of vaccines,” the statement said.

The announcement did not say how many doses would be donated or name the recipient countries. Israeli media, citing diplomatic sources, said they included Honduras and Guatemala, which have opened embassies in Jerusalem. Also on the list reportedly were Hungary, which recently opened a trade mission in the city, and the Czech Republic, which has said it intends to open a diplomatic office of some kind there soon. Jerusalem is claimed as a capital by both Israel and the Palestinians.

Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs declined to comment.

Using vaccine as an apparent diplomatic reward was criticized by some public health experts and by Netanyahu’s opponents.

“The fact that Netanyahu trades in vaccines funded by Israeli taxpayers without discussion and accountability shows that he is running a kingdom and not a country,” said Defense Minister Benny Gantz, who will oppose Netanyahu in elections next month.

Vaccine was also apparently a bargaining chip in a recent prisoner swap between Israel and Syria. In exchange for the return of an Israeli woman who illegally crossed the Syrian border, Israel reportedly agreed to pay for thousands of doses of the Russian Sputnik vaccine to be delivered to Damascus.

Israel has yet to publicly confirm that arrangement. A public health adviser to the government said Wednesday that the plans were still being finalized. The symbolic donation announced Tuesday is apparently unrelated to that larger effort.

The carbon offset API developer Patch confirms a $4.5 million round led by Andreessen Horowitz – TechCrunch


Patch, the carbon offset API developer, has raised $4.5 million in financing to build out its business selling customers a way to calculate their carbon footprint and identify and finance offset projects that capture the equivalent carbon dioxide emissions associated with that footprint. 

Confirming TechCrunch reporting, Andreessen Horowitz led the round, which also included previous investors VersionOne Ventures, MapleVC and Pale Blue Dot Ventures.

Patch’s application protocol interface works for both internal and customer-facing operations. The company’s code can integrate into the user experience on a company’s internal site to track things like business flights for employees, recommending and managing the purchase of carbon credits to offset employee travel.

The software allows companies to choose which projects they’d like to finance to support the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, with projects ranging from the tried and true reforestation and conservation projects to more high-tech early-stage technologies like direct air capture and sequestration projects, the company said. 

Patch founders Brennan Spellacy and Aaron Grunfeld, two former employees at the apartment rental service Sonder, stressed in an interview that the company’s offset work should not be viewed as an alternative to the decarbonization of businesses that use its service. Rather, they see Patch’s services as a complement to other work companies need to do to transition away from a reliance on fossil fuels in business operations.

Patch currently works with 11 carbon removal suppliers and has plans to onboard another 10 before the end of the first quarter, the company said. These are companies like CarbonCure, which injects carbon dioxide into cement and fixes it so that it’s embedded in building materials for as long as a building lasts.

“Carbon removal credits can help to dramatically accelerate the deployment of technologies like CarbonCure’s, which are absolutely critical to helping us reach our global climate targets. Demand for high-quality, permanent credits is sky-rocketing, and listing credits on Patch will help us to attract a broader range of buyers,” said Jennifer Wagner, president of CarbonCure Technologies, in a statement. 

It also has around 15 customers already using its service, according to earlier TechCrunch reporting. Those buyers include companies like TripActions and the private equity firm EQT, which intends to extend the integration of Patch’s API from its own operations to those of its portfolio companies down the road, according to Spellacy.

Grunfeld said that the company would be spending the money to hire more staff and developing new products. From its current headcount of six employees, Patch intends to bring on another 24 by the end of the year.

As the company expands, it’s looking to some of the startups providing carbon emissions audit and verification services as a channel that the company’s API can integrate with and sell through. These would be businesses like CarbonChainPersefoni and another Y Combinator graduate, SINAI Technologies.

“An increasing number of businesses are taking leadership positions in an effort to reduce emissions to try to counteract global warming,” said Jeff Jordan, managing partner at Andreessen Horowitz. “Patch makes it much easier for companies to add carbon removal to their core business processes, aggregating verified carbon-removal supply and offering turn-key access to it to companies through an easy-to-implement API.”
