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.

Lawrence Solomon is Executive Director of Energy Probe and author of The Deniers (forthcoming).
