The $200-million per year currently spent fighting global warming isn’t enough, says “Design to Win: Philanthropy’s Role in the Fight Against Global Warming,” a report funded by six philanthropies. To get the job done, at least $800-million per year is needed.
Even this represents a short-sighted effort, says the Chronicle of Philanthropy. The $600-billion that foundations control should be turned to combating global warming, regardless of the philanthropy’s mandate, because global warming encompasses virtually all mandates.
