Today we welcome 120 newly elected members — 59 of whom are women, the most elected in a single year.

“The historic number of women elected this year reflects the critical contributions that they are making in many fields of science, as well as a concerted effort by our Academy to recognize those contributions and the essential value of increasing diversity in our ranks,” said National Academy of Sciences President Marcia McNutt. “I am pleased to welcome all of our new members, and I look forward to engaging with them in the work of the National Academies.”

Join us in congratulating our new members on their outstanding achievements in original research.

Here’s what countries pledged on climate change at Biden’s global summit

#EarthDay Action
#earthdayeveryday

If it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes the whole world to save the planet.

Leaders of countries like Brazil, Japan and Canada made commitments on Thursday to curb greenhouse gas emissions during President Joe Biden’s climate summit.

The pledges by U.S. allies and adversaries come shortly after Biden vowed to reduce U.S. emissions by at least 50% by 2030.

The president convened the summit in an effort to urge global cooperation on climate change. “We’re really beginning to make some real progress,” Biden told leaders during the summit.

The pledges by U.S. allies and adversaries at the global climate summit come shortly after Biden vowed to reduce U.S. emissions by at least 50% by 2030.
