The Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit organization that has focused on combating AIDS, poverty and childhood obesity, will turn its attention to greenhouse gases, former US President Bill Clinton said on Tuesday.
"It seems to me that there is now a consensus in the world that climate change is real and that we have to reduce greenhouse gas emissions," said Mr Clinton. "What we need now is more information about how to do it quickly, economically, and organize the efforts to do it. It seemed to me that the challenge was quite a bit like the work I've done on AIDS."
For its first act, the foundation has formed a partnership with the Large Cities Climate Leadership Group, led by the London mayor Ken Livingstone, to work on reducing emissions of heat-trapping gases in cities, which generate roughly 70 percent of the world's greenhouse gases.
