WorldChanging: Another World Is Here: Best Global Warming NGOs?
Caterina Fake wrote this weekend with a good question. ‘So, I am really worried about global warming,’ she said, ‘and I want to know which non-profit would be best for me to contribute funds to address the issue (and I figured you’d know).’
My answer was that in North America, it seems to be the local and regional groups which are both doing the most inspiring work and most need the funds. For instance, the Northwest’s leading climate NGO, Climate Solutions, is doing great work not only on educating the public but on getting nuts-and-bolts reforms to favor wind farms, biofuels and smart grids. Also, it looks like these local/regional groups are increasingly cohering into a networked movement to create national change in the U.S. and Canada.
