Monday, June 18, 2007 - its mission

I feel this nagging obligation to try to save humans from themselves. Really, it's a nuisance; with the notable exception of my extended family and friends humans are not even a particularly attractive species. Anyway I'm stuck with it, but since I have no power this could get frustrating ... except that Google has it covered: - mission
  1. Global Development: develop scalable, sustainable solutions to poverty by focusing on economic growth in the private sector and improving access to information and services for the poor.
  2. Global Public Health: enable the world to better predict, prevent and eradicate communicable diseases through better access to and use of information.
  3. Climate Change: mitigate the effect of climate change on the poor by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving energy efficiency, and supporting clean energy sources.
Thanks Google. Now how about world peace?

interesting... i work for a green car manufacturer, and we are struggling for funding the development for a 100% electric vehicle that will be affordable to most people (who by the way are getting tanked by fuel costs), and we could really use some of that green-funding google had going on over there.

creating an ev under 23k is a challenge, but we KNOW it's possible!!

i read over the mission statement, and was compelled to post.
