The World Resources Institute (WRI) is a global research non-profit organization established in 1982 with funding from the MacArthur Foundation under the leadership of James Gustave Speth. WRI's activities are focused on seven areas:

According to Sourcewatch it is an enthusiastic proponent of Carbon Capture and Storage[1] (the experimental technology aimed at reducing carbon emissions from coal-fired power stations).



ClimateWorksLarge funder of projects intended to steer public opinion and take control over all government policy under the pretext of fighting climate change. Part of "a blob" of similar very wealthy interconnected foundations with opaque structures. Backers include Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg.
Hewlett FoundationHuge foundation setting the agenda by funding lots of deep state projects.
MacArthur FoundationFinances non-profit organizations and select people in approximately 50 countries around the world, buying immense cultural and political influence. It often coordinates its priorities with other deep state foundations, creating a mesh of grants, cross-grants and sub-grants that is very hard to analyze.
