ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the plan of Citigroup Inc. to direct $50 billion over the next 10 years to address global climate change through investments and related activities in the U.S. He remarked that the company's move sounded that it was going to cut an awfully great amount. He added that in reality, it will simply try to finance more deals that involve clean energy. The author commented that finance companies should be commended for the move, but must need to remember their priorities.
