The billionaire couple Stewart and Lynda Resnick have pledged $750 Million to the California Institute of Technology to help save the planet.
‘In order to comprehensively manage the climate crisis, we need breakthrough innovations’
This has been the largest donation ever made to protect the climate and tackle ‘issues of water, energy, food, and waste in a world confronting rapid climate change’.
“In order to comprehensively manage the climate crisis, we need breakthrough innovations, the kind that will only be possible through significant investment in university research,” Stewart Resnick said in a statement, according to Forbes.
“Science and bold creativity must unite to address the most pressing challenges facing energy, water, and sustainability.”
“Sustainability is the challenge of our times,” Thomas F. Rosenbaum Caltech President said in a statement.” The Resnick Sustainability Institute will now be able to mount efforts at scale, letting researchers across campus follow their imaginations and translate fundamental discovery into technologies that dramatically advance solutions to society’s most pressing problems.”
