Bill Clinton on the Daily Show

Below is a great interview with Bill Clinton from The Daily Show, addressing the former President's work on the Clinton Global Initiative - last week's meeting of world leaders and influential citizens, during which Richard Branson made his $3 billion dollar contribution to anti-global warminginititiaves, and a coalition of businesses announced a $1 billion fund for renewable energy.

As Clinton Himself says in the interview, the purpose of the conference is to bring together the leaders of business, politics, NGOs and private citizens to address issues of world concern, with the caveat being that those who attend must make a commitment to contribute to one of the Initiative's four areas:

  • Energy and Global Warming
  • Global Health
  • Poverty Mitigation
  • Mitigating Religious and Ethnic Conflict

Here's the clip:
