At least he is putting his money ( and only his ) where his falling sky is. I’d advise him to just lite the 10 billion on fire and it would do just as good but burning money might effect global temperatures by .000001 degree.

Investing in R&D is the best thing we can do. Improved efficiency in our basic infrastructure is a win for everyone. Throwing money at "activist groups" and NGOs is wildly counterproductive.
