leaders to watch

Ascents can begin at any age AS WE ASSEMBLED OUR SECOND ANNUAL TIME100 Next list—an expansion of our flagship TIME100 franchise that highlights 100 emerging leaders who are shaping the future—what struck me most was how its members are coping with crisis. Amid a global pandemic, deepening inequality, systemic injustice and existential questions about truth, democracy and the planet itself, the individuals on this year’s list provide “clear-eyed hope,” as actor, composer and director Lin-Manuel Miranda puts it in his tribute to poet and TIME100 Next honoree Amanda Gorman. They are doctors and scientists fighting COVID-19, advocates pushing for equality and justice, journalists standing up for truth, and artists sharing their visions of present and future. As with Miranda and Gorman, many of the TIME100 Next profiles are written by TIME100 alumni—a testament…

ELECTION PLOT RE “HOW CLOSE WE CAME” [Feb. 15–22]: Unless it was your intent to rabble-rouse, your piece about efforts to maintain a fair, free and legal presidential election and vote-count does no one any favors. Your overheated language seems designed and destined to play directly into the hands of those intent on finding evidence of a so-called (but nonexistent) Deep State determined to enslave and disenfranchise conservatives. “Conspiracy,” “paranoid fever dream,” and “well-funded cabal of powerful people” represent the language of extremists on both sides of the political spectrum used to demonize opponents. I can already hear Marjorie Taylor Greene quoting TIME to support her QAnon beliefs. Eugene Ely, SAN JOSE, CALIF. THIS ARTICLE TOOK MY breath away. I could hardly believe how much work, dedication, integrity, money and talent were needed…

texas blackouts raise climate warning

FOR SCIENTISTS, THE HAVOC WREAKED BY THE extreme winter weather that hit Texas in mid-February—dropping several inches of snow and leaving millions without power—did not come as a surprise. Ten years ago, in 2011, energy regulators warned the state’s electric-grid operators that they were ill-prepared for an unprecedented winter storm. And for decades before that, climate scientists had cautioned that a warming planet would cause climate chaos, raising the average global temperature while driving unusual weather events like this one. For Texas, it was always just a matter of time. Despite these warnings, the state was unprepared—which Texans realized as soon as the storm swept in. Equipment froze at power plants, leaving about half of the state’s electricity-generating capacity offline. Natural gas wells iced over, slowing the fuel supply that heats…

trump continues to command the spotlight

AT THIS POINT IN MOST PRESIDENCIES, all eyes are on the White House. A new team is rolling into Washington, eager to make its mark and deliver on campaign promises. Presidential appointments, the first address to Congress, and big-ticket projects like health care or education typically dominate the public’s imagination. But as he approaches the one-month mark, things have gone differently for President Joe Biden, who is competing for attention with his predecessor, Donald Trump. On Feb. 13, the Senate acquitted the 45th President of inciting an insurrection. Trump’s second impeachment acquittal not only dominated the news, it also extended his sway. Republicans like Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell and Representative Liz Cheney, attempting to guide the party back to its traditional conservative footing, are criticizing Trump’s postelection behavior, forcing GOP…

italy gets a new leader, and a shot of optimism

POPULAR FORMER EUROPEAN CENTRAL Bank (ECB) chief Mario Draghi was sworn in as Italy’s Prime Minister on Feb. 13. Draghi, 73, won respect at home and abroad in 2012, when his decisive ECB leadership was credited with saving the euro. His appointment—after securing support from across the political spectrum following his predecessor’s resignation in January—spared Italy from holding an election in the midst of a pandemic that has claimed 94,000 lives. Now, many hope Super Mario, as Europe’s media call him, can steer Italy out of economic crisis. FINANCIAL WOES COVID-19 has battered Italy’s already sluggish economy, which shrank by 8.8% in 2020. Its growth this year is trailing the E.U.’s, but the bloc’s offer of some $240 million in recovery loans and grants triggered the collapse of the coalition government…
