2. Financier Plans Big Ad Campaign on Climate Change. Watch how Climate Change is slowly growing into a central issue of governments, and therefore elections. This donor is speeding up that process.

3. Doing Good is not Incompatible with Making a Profit – showing that businesses can make money while maintaining social responsibility, and that non-profits are not the only organizations that should be expected to ‘do good.’
