    A North Carolina executive is pouring his own money into trying to sway people in the GOP to take global warming seriously.

    "A Republican entrepreneur is putting a whopping $175 million behind a campaign whose message will have some party stalwarts seeing red: The GOP needs to deal with climate change."

    Will this one Republican wake up his party?

    the money would be better spent on therapy for the GOP than a bunch of climate change ads

    Hmm. Let's see.

    This guy: $175,000,000.00
    Koch Bros: $900,000,000.00

    What do you think is going to happen here?

    The GOP definitely needs more folks like this wealthy entrepreneur to wake it up and face the strong possibilities of climate change. However, the fossil fuel extraction industries will try to tamp down on this guy's important message.
