When and until the rest of the world gets on board with taking active measures to clean up the environment, this money will largely be wasted. The U.S. can't do it all. The United Nations is relatively useless and China, India et al need to be held accountable for their lack of action on this issue.

Amazing leadership Laurene!

Thank you!
