The billionaire’s pledge.

via The Guardian:

Billionaires plan to put the world to rights following secret supper - Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are among those signing up to the greatest private donation in history

… The meeting was called the “first supper”. There have been, according to Fortune, second and third suppers since then. Finally, a strategy has emerged around a “pledge” whereby billionaires who sign up promise to give away 50% of their net worth. If it works, the group will be the greatest private philanthropic effort in history.

You definitely can’t say these guys aren’t doing something with their money.  More importantly, these lords of lords are exactly the two people that need to lead this movement.   Hmm… almost exactly like China and the US not doing anything about climate change. COUGH.
