Before joining The Nature Conservancy in 2008, Mark Tercek was a managing director at Goldman Sachs, where he played a key role in developing the firm’s environmental strategy. He headed the firm’s Environmental Strategy Group and Center for Environmental Markets, which worked to develop and promote market-based solutions to environmental challenges. The same initiatives condemned by James Hansen of NASA!

CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOT A PROFIT OPPORTUNITY !! THE HOLOCENE MASS EXTINCTION RAGES ON UNABATED. FIRES, COMMODITY SHORTAGES, DROUGHTS AND A WALL STREET INVESTMENT SCRAMBLE INTO SOURCES OF FRESH WATER ARE PLAGUING THE WORLD.

NO WONDER!!

Mark also headed various business units at the firm, including Corporate Finance, Equity Capital Markets, Consumer/Healthcare and Leadership Development. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1984 and was named a partner in 1996.

In 2010, Mark was appointed by U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu to serve on the National Petroleum Council, through which he will provide advice, information and recommendations to Secretary Chu on environmental issues related to oil and natural gas.

Mark, Kudos to your role in the BP Oil disaster. May you and Errol Davis get your own arrest warrant from Interpol and share a cell with dick cheney

It is better to support groups that use less of your donations in pay to the top and more to do the work. Look groups up on charitynavigator.com to see how much the leadership is paid. Most of us at the grassroots level would do their job for far less so that the work gets done than the big guns hired to bring in the bucks. For example, just imagine what work could be accomplished is the leader were paid $75,000 instead of $250,000 or more. Markets merely create bubbles because certain people always figure out a way to game the system.

The global environmental organizations are run by global banking elites. Here's another Goldman Sachs exec running another environmental organization: http://www.worldwildlife.org/who/Governance/governance.html

Well, the global banking elites, if they are going to get into environmental work, should probably educate themselves to understand the problem. in about 30 years, collapse is probably a done deal without a reversal in actions today..

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
