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.

Somewhat overshadowed by this gift was the $1 billion investment fund started by President Clinton and a small group of attendees at the Clinton Global Initiative, this money targeted at developing renewable energy. That’s $4 billion in all to combat global warming. Clinton rocks!
