Australian Billionaire, Mine Owner Might Save the Planet

The New York Times, in a wonderful story, asks: Can a Carbon-Emitting Iron Ore Tycoon Save the Planet? Then adds: Andrew Forrest made a mining fortune. Now he wants to lead a climate change revolution — and beat the fossil fuel giants along the way.

The story demonstrates how people with the resources and knowledge can help change the climate and save the world. Forrest gets his miners behind his vision by saying, “It’s like being there at the beginning of the industrial revolution. Someday you’ll look back and say, ‘I was there.’”

We should all be saying and thinking those same words as we spread the climate change message. Plus follow his mother’s advice, “Enjoy your life, but make sure you’re as useful as you can possibly be.”
