Journal crazyjeremy's Journal: Clinton Raises $7.3Billion To Fight Poverty & Global Warming 1

Bill Clinton hosted a conference "on world problems". By the end of the three-day Global Initiative which included celebrities, Corporate America types and world leaders the former president raised $7.3 Billion in pledges.

"The Earth is warming at an alarming rate, we are running out of fossil fuels, and it is long past time for us to take action to correct these problems," Clinton said. "This is also a tremendous opportunity and there are countless good new jobs to be created in the field of green energy."

Apparently Former World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn will serve as the fund's managing director and Clinton will serve as a senior adviser. Where should Clinton and Wolfensohn start spending this cash to fight these world problems?
