Dive In

 

Hopefully this will influence a new form of capitalism that doesn’t end up with a few rich people and a bunch of poor people. We are going to give away the maximum amount of money to people who are actively working on saving this planet.

That’s what Yvon Chouinard—the founder of Patagonia said, explaining his decision to simply give away his $3 billion outdoor apparel company. Chouinard and his family have transferred their ownership to a specially designed trust and a nonprofit organisation. These have been created to preserve the company’s independence. They will also be in charge of deploying 100% of its profits—some $100 million a year—to combat climate change. BBC News has more details.

Big Story

The great embarrassment of Vladimir Putin

The TLDR: Ukraine recently scored a shocking strategic victory—exposing the weak underbelly of a Russian military that now looks incompetent, undermanned and worse. And everyone is talking about the unthinkable—Russia’s defeat. What the hell happened?

 

Editor’s Note: Our previous email had the incorrect TLDR, our bad. We’re sorry!
