Amazon’s Jeff Bezos pledges $10 billion to launch Earth Fund for combating climate change

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos on Monday announced the launch of a new Earth Fund that the e-commerce chief plans to use to combat the effects of climate change.

He said in an Instagram post that he’s pledging $10 billion to start the fund, which will be called the Bezos Earth Fund, and will issue grants to scientists, activists and other organizations in their efforts to “preserve and protect the natural world.”

“We can save Earth,” Bezos wrote in his post. “It’s going to take collective action from big companies, small companies, nation states, global organizations, and individuals.”

“Climate change is the biggest threat to our planet,” he added. “I want to work alongside others both to amplify known ways and to explore new ways of fighting the devastating impact of climate change on this planet we all share.”

Hmm, so, this fund isn’t really doing anything but funding activists and “scientists” who’ll lobby government to force their beliefs on Everyone Else? Seriously, what is Bezos doing in his own life to reduce his carbon footprint? How about the vast amounts of fossil fuels and energy used by the Bezos owned Washington Post (which also has the story) to gather, create, and disseminate the news? Will he be reducing that carbon footprint?

And what of Amazon? It has a pretty big footprint with all those goods being delivered in fossil fueled vehicles, right? Will the whiny employees who were protesting be satisfied?

Amazon Employees for Climate Justice said Monday that while they support Bezos’s move, it’s still concerned about the company’s support of the oil and gas industry.

“We applaud Jeff Bezos’ philanthropy, but one hand cannot give what the other is taking away,” the group said in a statement. “The people of Earth need to know: When is Amazon going to stop helping oil & gas companies ravage Earth with still more oil and gas wells?”

Guess not. Of course, without fossil fuels, Amazon ceases to be able to operate and all those employees lose their jobs.

Anyhow, this whole climate fund from Bezos looks like a typical Warmist con-job.

    I’m still waiting for just ONE adverse thing to happen that is caused by AGW. We hear a lot of maybe, possibly, might, is thought to and other such uncertain terms but never anything concrete.

    Ive said this all along.

    Bloomberg…10 billion
    Bezos……….10 Billion
    Buffet………..10 billion
    Steyer……….10 billion
    Soros……….10 billion

    On down the list of 1130 billionaires and suddenly you have 1130×10 or1.1 trillion for AGW.

    Know why they dont? Cause they have no plan.

    built windmills in flyover country while the elites live in their high rises in NYC telling the rest of the world how to live and what to think.

    You see that in John everytime he posts. Probably a guy who has never ventured a foot outside his little bubble in whatever big city he lives in.

    Again. How you gonna eat Johns of the world, when you take away fossil fuels and then try to figure out how to farm, get the products to market, process them and get them to YOU?

    No PLAN. Hope the sun is shinning today or everyone stay home from work cause we got no lectricity.

    Every Nuke plant is tied up in court for 20 years.

    Every Hydro damn is tied up in court.

    Every Windmill farm is tied up in court.

    And the ones doing the tying are the ones screaming the worlds gonna end.

      haha.

      My daughter is an AVID AGW proponent. A frothing out the mouth AGW crazy.

      She was railing just today about global warming while we had lunch together and my daughter brought her along.

      I looked at her and said.

      So if you get rid of fossil fuels how you going to eat?

      Without breaking stride, she said.

      McDonalds.

      • Chumpchange says:

        Sorry, that should read MY DAUGHTERS FRIEND is an avid AGW proponent.

        I had a similar discussion with a person who was saying how electric cars were great. (This was back years ago.)

        When I asked her how the increased demand on the power grid could handle the demand, she said “what are you talking about? All you have to do is plug the car into the wall and the power is there!”

        She had no idea that power grids have generating limits without new construction (which she was against.)

    A fool and his money.

      Frankly, I think every left wing billionaire in America should be assessed $10 billion per year until we defeat glowball warming. Then we’ll see how fast it becomes a non issue when the people bitchin’ about have to pay for it.

    I guess that Mr Bezos has bought himself one really big climate indulgence!

    As for his newspaper, The Washington Post and all of the others will want to go a little greener, as soon as they can figure out how to survive as digital-only publications. After all, who wants to keep up with those making-your-fingers-newsprint-dirty papers, when all of the hoitiest and the toitiest can read everything on their computers and tablets? It’ll be much greener to dispense with the printing operation . . . and those blue-collar employees who do the printing and delivery.

    Of course, Amazon is flirting with delivery-by-drone, which is all-electric, but gosh, some of those power plants burn coal. And there are [insert plural slang term for the rectum here] like me who would shoot down any drone hovering over my property.
