Billionaire philanthropist, George Soros, has thrown his considerable weight behind campaigns to save the world from the effects of global warming.
Soros plans to launch a Climate Policy Initiative, which he will fund with US$10 million (R74.5 million) a year for 10 years. He will invest up to a further US$1 billion in clean-air technology.
Soros maintains that, “Global warming is a political problem. The science is clear, what is less clear is whether world leaders will demonstrate the political will necessary to solve the problem.”
