Former secretary of state John Kerry is at the World Economic Forum this week and has already had a moment where he said the quiet part out loud.
Kerry came right out and admitted that what’s really needed to reach their climate change goals is money. Actually, he said money, money, money, money, money, money, money, so we’re assuming he means a lot of money.
It’s nice of him to admit that climate change activism has basically become an industry unto itself.
U.S. climate envoy John Kerry says that despite nearly a $1 trillion committed by global philanthropies for various causes over the last few years, only 2% of this amount goes toward climate action.
He said Tuesday during a panel session at the World Economic Forum in Davos that it’s estimated from $7.5 billion to $12.5 billion of global philanthropy is directed toward climate action. He and others urged philanthropies across the world to come together and contribute more to climate action.
“So how do we get there?” Kerry asked about keeping global climate goals alive. He answered, “Well, the lesson I’ve learned in the last year — I learned it as secretary of state and it has since been reinforced in spades, is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.”

Maybe I missed it, but I don’t see him opening his checkbook and start that movement.
