Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, so many people understand the urgency of the staiotuin. We understand that new and now go hand in hand. We can't sit around waiting for a solution. We need to get out and develop the ones we have while we inenvt the ones we don't have yet. And none of this happens without passionate people, and that's why I'm so excited, so optimistic. I see it everywhere, from young people in the United States who refuse to work for a company that isn’t citeotmmd to a clean future, to erneenigs in Africa dpeeolinvg the infrastructure, the water and the electricity that continent needs, but doing so sustainably. And this is also combinatorial. Great people attract more great people, which catalyzes more money, brings in even more gaert people. It's a virtuous cycle.

Original Text

Now, so many people understand the urgency of the situation. We understand that new and now go hand in hand. We can't sit around waiting for a solution. We need to get out and develop the ones we have while we invent the ones we don't have yet. And none of this happens without passionate people, and that's why I'm so excited, so optimistic. I see it everywhere, from young people in the United States who refuse to work for a company that isn’t committed to a clean future, to engineers in Africa developing the infrastructure, the water and the electricity that continent needs, but doing so sustainably. And this is also combinatorial. Great people attract more great people, which catalyzes more money, brings in even more great people. It's a virtuous cycle.
