Wonder if the Bezos owned WaPo will refrain from shilling for organizations and candidates supported by his generosity. Oh, I am sorry it's their civic duty to support their owner.

Democrats love to whine about rich donors corrupting elections but who could question Bezos?
Corruption is fine as long as it supports progressive ideals.

His money, his choice.

Given the same choice, I'd use the 10 billion to open up a for profit company employing thousands that would actually make something that would help the perceived problem rather than give it to people to do nothing but talk about it.

It will probably go towards a campaign to make everyone believe that people are causing climate change. It seems like that is all they really care about.

If they were all so concerned about rising oceans, Obama and others would not be buying houses on the beach.

And if they really believed we were killing people by using petroleum products, we would see them leading by example.

Bezo is the first one to pony up some cash, but I doubt that he will set an example and stop burning fossil fuel.

Get-a-clue is right, he is just doing this to shield himself and his mega corporation from over zealous progressives.

Your presumption assumes that there are real answers to this perceived danger. Dangers that have been claimed since at least the 1970's.
50 years of warnings have passed. If that were so, those real answers would be evident, and accomplished by now.

Finally a man made climate change believer that puts his money where his mouth is.

I have said for a long time that if the 50 million people in America that believe in man made global warming all got together and donated a nice percentage of their income, and gave up all petroleum products, they could show us how they can change the climate and make believers out of all of us.

But it seems that most of them refuse to do anything, other than complain about those that do not believe.
I wish he'd buy Donald trump and ship his azz to Russia.

It would be easier for Bezo to just buy Russia.

Nice to see a man made global warming fairy tale believer put his own money instead of other peoples where his mouth is. Although I bet he still flies around on his private jets, has a couple of huge mansions, drinks bottled water, probably has a car collection and burns fuel traveling to exotic places.

The contribution has nothing to do with global warming or climate change, it's all about creating a massive political action committee for Bezos business interests. Activists will have to kiss the climate change ring publicly and also support Amazon privately. Bezos already has turned the WaPo into a hideously partisan caricature of a newspaper but now after seeing Democrats swoon over Bloomberg for a mere $450 million he sees the opportunity to buy a major political party at an affordable price.
