‘Farewell, readers’: Alan Rusbridger on leaving the Guardian after two decades at the helm

theguardian.com — This, if you're reading the physical paper - which, of course, you are not - is my last edition as editor. In just over 20 years we have put nearly 7,500 papers "to bed", as almost no one says nowadays. At some point in the 24-hour, seamlessly rolling digital news cycle, you'll have a new editor.

Dear Bill Gates: 'Will you lead the fight against climate change?'

theguardian.com — In 2009, nearly half of the world's new polio cases were in India.

The Guardian Media Group's decision to divest is in thanks to our readers

theguardian.com — The Guardian Media Group (GMG) has begun a process of divesting its more than £800m investment portfolio from fossil fuels.
