Today’s Solutions: November 28, 2023

Lynda and Stewart Resnick are the owners of Wonderful Company, the largest single producers of almonds and pistachios in the world. That means that if anyone is worried about the consequences of what the climate crisis can be for agriculture, it’s them. After all, their business depends on a thriving climate.

For that reason, the Resnicks have donated a mind-boggling $750 million to Caltech for research in climate change and sustainability. That number represents the second-largest donation an educational institution has ever received and the largest geared towards combating the consequences of climate change. The money will be used to further study solar and climate science, energy, biofuel decomposable plastics, water, and environmental resources, as well as ecology and biosphere engineering.
