Meet “The Carbon War Room” (TLR Note: Allegedly based in Washington, DC — But is it really, Mitch and Freada Kapor ?)

The Carbon War Room is a global, independent non-profit. Our mission is to harness the power of entrepreneurs to unlock market-driven solutions to climate change. The Carbon War Room is a US registered 501(c)3 organization.

Climate change is too important and too complex for governments to solve alone – business must lead and attract private capital towards solutions. We need a level playing field: there are $550b annual subsidies to fossil fuels. There is coincidentally $550b extra needed in green investment. A $550b shift is not a lot for private capital – it’s a shift of less than 1 percent. That’s why we started the Carbon War Room – to unlock the greatest wealth creation opportunity of our generation.

50% of all emissions can be profitably offset with today’s technology. Policy is necessary but not sufficient. A complementary and different skill-set to traditional efforts is needed – focused on making markets work better and unleashing capital. We need to invest in the tools to move capital. We need to focus on each sector, not a one size fits all.

Carbon War Room is ultimately working towards the removal of 17 gigatons of anthropogenic carbon.

The Carbon War Room acts on a simple truth: that real progress is rarely driven by policy makers, but is instead led by visionaries who find opportunities that others have missed. Our work brings together entrepreneurs, technology experts, financiers, and action-oriented government leaders to find ways to make an immediate difference at sufficient scale to avert catastrophe.

The Carbon War Room seeks funding from three main sources: individuals, corporations and foundations. These funding sources provide the capital for organizational overhead, new potential operations and active operations. The founders of the Carbon War Room fund all core operational overhead. 100 percent of every dollar from other funding sources goes towards the bottom line our Operations, Network Engagement and Research programs.

Established in 2009, Carbon War Room was founded by Sir Richard Branson and incubated within his charity, Virgin Unite. Richard was joined by a select group of like-minded entrepreneurs. They are an amazing group of individuals. We encourage you to learn more about them: who-we-are/founders.

In less than two years, the Carbon War Room has established itself as a unique player in the global effort to fight climate change, offering a space where entrepreneurs, government and business leaders, and other key stakeholders can come together to find immediate solutions to the challenge of bringing carbon-cutting strategies to unprecedented scale.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

  • Working for the Judicial Council and a pattern of racketeering activity 2016/10/31

The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
