Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has pledged $10 billion to “fight climate change.”
Like Chris Rock said, “You know Jeff Bezos is rich, when he can get a divorce and he’s still the richest man in the world!
How exactly do you “fight climate change” with your money though?
Exactly who do you give your money to or what can you buy that will actually effect the global climate in a positive way?
And how would you measure that?
How exactly would you know if you’re doing any “good…,” whatever that is?
Reggie Wade of Yahoo Finance reports that, “Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest person, is committing $10 billion of his own money to fight climate change through the creation of the ‘Bezos Earth Fund.’”
Ohhh…, that’s what you do…, you create a fund!
“The Amazon CEO announced the launch on Instagram, asserting humans can save the Earth by using an inclusive approach that combines the efforts and resources of all stakeholders.”
Well said, Jeff…, well said.
‘“We can save Earth. It’s going to take collective action from big companies, small companies, nation-states, global organizations, and individuals,’ the post stated. I’m committing $10 billion to start and will begin issuing grants this summer. Earth is the one thing we all have in common — let’s protect it, together.’ A post shared by Jeff Bezos (@jeffbezos) on Feb 17, 2020 at 10:00am PST”
Again…, what exactly would these “collective actions” be?
I could tell you exactly what you could do to fight global pollution…, but “climate change?”
“Bezos, who has a net worth of $130 billion, is no stranger to the climate change fight. In September 2019, the Amazon founder announced: ‘The Climate Pledge,’ which stated that the retail behemoth’s ultimate goal is to become carbon-neutral by 2040.”
Well, okay Jeff, but the Earth is supposed to end in like 2030…, soooo.
Maybe get with Ocasio-Cortez and her people, and see about moving up that timetable.
“At the same time, Bezos has been criticized about contributions made by himself and Amazon. Observers recently accused Bezos of being stingy after he donated $690,000 toward relief efforts related to devastating wild fires in Australia (which experts link to climate change). And Amazon, which Bezos founded in 1994, routinely pays an incredibly low tax rate on billions in profit.”
What kind of jerk donates ONLY $690,000?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He should be ashamed.
I mean, c’mon!
Well, the “experts” were right in a sense. The wild fires in Australia were set by “climate change” proponents and enthusiasts, just to hurry the process along…, because “climate change” would have caused the fires on its own eventually anyway.
Yes folks…, you can’t make this stuff up.
That’s why the fires in Australia suddenly disappeared from running on the fake news 24/7. As soon as they stopped fitting the “climate change” narrative, they got about as much coverage as President Trump’s historic economic numbers…, ZERO.
“Former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang praised Bezos’s initiative.”
‘“Good for Bezos pledging $10 billion to fight climate change. But it’s going to take nation-scale resources and policies to genuinely shift consumption, adaptation and mitigation.’— Andrew Yang (@AndrewYang) February 17, 2020”
Thanks for clearing that up Yang.
Nothing personal, Yang…, but if you could never get over like 1% support in the polls, were you ever really a “real” candidate?
I mean, couldn’t anybody get less than 1% in the polls without any effort at all just by saying they’re a candidate?
I value your feedback and I’d love to hear from you!
