Virgin Group Chairman and billionaire Sir Richard Branson has pledged all of the profits from his airline and rail businesses for the next 10 years, or roughly $3 Billion to combat Global Warming. This comes just one day after the Bush Administration pledged the same amount to climate technology research and development. It’s definitely disappointing when our administration is single-handedly matched by an outstanding citizen. However, this is absolutely a step in the right direction. So, much thanks and admiration goes out today to Richard Branson, who’s working for the common good.

Research done in the United States, Germany, and Switzerland shows that the sun has remained virtually constant in the amount of energy output over the last 10 decades, varying only 0.07% every 11 years due to sun spots. This is the latest evidence that the tremendous increase in temperature that we’ve experienced since the Industrial Revolution is due to human influence. Who’d have thought Global Warming was caused by us?
