Besides fighting disease, the foundation is funding power plants, which can
pollute and cause respiratory disease.
In fact, the foundation has been investing in lots of energy companies to earn
more money to pay for vaccines and research.
And therein lies the contradiction.
Energy companies are not known for their environmental contributions. But should
the Gates foundation shy away from what could otherwise be a good investment?
Just where is the greater good?
Would it be better for the foundation to invest in solar power and fuel cells?
Sure -- as long as it gets just as good a return as drilling for oil. Tell me
where I'm wrong at [email protected].
