VIDEO Greetings from Bill Clinton

Last week, heads of state, business leaders, and nonprofit executives gathered in New York City for the sixth annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). I started CGI after going to thousands of meetings over my career where people talked about issues but did little to solve them. We ask all CGI members to make a commitment to take action, and this year's attendees made nearly 300 new commitments valued at $6 billion. You can view highlights of the meeting here, and then take our quiz to see how these commitments, along with your support, are improving lives around the world. Earlier this month, we hosted our most recent Millennium Network Event -- this time in Brooklyn, New York -- to engage the next generation of philanthropists. This wonderful evening included performances from Chaka Khan and Talib Kweli. Sign up today to become a part of this growing network. You can read about these events and more in this month's e-newsletter. We couldn't continue to do this work without you. Thank you for your support.Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton Discusses Climate Change

Clinton told the gathered crowd of leaders that the main setback to enacting climate change legislation in most countries has been the perceived cost of enacting changes. However, as we’ve reported on numerous occasions, the economic benefits of switching to a greener economy far outweigh the costs of change.

Clinton’s remarks about increasing natural disasters also come in a year where we’ve seen unprecedented snow

Bill Clinton Says Clean Energy Will Cut Unemployment, Drive Growth

The fact is: there is no single area of near-term economic development with as much potential to heal the economic wounds that afflict our nation or to create new jobs and make for vibrant thriving communities than clean energy innovation. In part, this is because the job is so big. In part, it is owing to the fact that energy is everywhere; there is no corner of the society that can ably do without it in at least some small dose for very long. The interconnectedness and fast pace of 21st century America requires a booming energy sector, and the energy sector has critical weaknesses.

Bill Clinton has set a new bar for post-presidency achievements.

Six years after unveiling his Clinton Global Initiative in midtown Manhattan, Bill Clinton is happy to reel off the numbers: 1,946 commitments to social change in the world valued at $63 billion “which have already improved nearly 300 million lives.” That's almost 5 percent of the Earth's population. And those numbers will go up this year, as the usual pilgrims for social change make their way to the cool and cavernous Sheraton on Seventh Avenue to announce philanthropic deals

Bill Clinton Says Aid for Women Key to Fighting Global Poverty

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton said his annual conference to link philanthropists with the fight against global poverty is focused on women because they’re not considered equal to men in many parts of the world.
There are still places where women are seen as “part human and part property,” Clinton said at the opening session of the Clinton Global Initiative’s meeting in Manhattan. “Is there a widespread belief, deep down inside, that men should have more rights than women? It’s worth thinking about.”

Bill Clinton says ‘Vote Strickland’ for a better job market

Clinton was asked three questions during his speech.

First, where are the new jobs going to come from?

“From small businesses, manufacturing and clean energy efficiency,” he answered.

Second, where’s the money going to come from?

“We need to figure out what it takes to get those loans.” Loans, he means, from the government.

Thirdly, if we can create the jobs and have the money to fund them, who’s going to fill them?

According to Clinton, more than 10 percent of the Ohio population is living at home because they can’t afford to move. This is due to the fact that people don’t have the job skills necessary to fill the available jobs out there.

“We just need to train them,” he said.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Former President Bill Clinton said Clinton put the blame for the economy on Republican policies before Strickland took office in 2007. He said Strickland has laid the foundation for a recovery in Ohio with strong economic development programs and deserves to be re-elected to a second term.

VIDEO An Inside Look at the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI)

In advance of the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) being held later this month, I interviewed the Director of Commitments for CGI, Marilia Bezerra, on the founding, meaning, and vision of the Initiative.

Brief Background: In 2005, President Clinton established CGI to turn ideas into action and to help our world move beyond the current state of globalization to a more integrated global community of shared benefits, responsibilities, and values. By gathering world leaders from a variety of backgrounds, CGI creates a unique opportunity to channel the capacities of individuals and organizations to realize change. To fulfill the action-oriented mission of CGI, all members devise practical solutions to global issues through the development of specific and measurable Commitments to Action.

Clinton in Ohio: Game films show Dems best choice

CINCINNATI – Former President Bill Clinton told supporters on Sunday evening that studying "game films" shows Democrats are best able to improve the economy.

The 6 p.m. rally will be open to the public, but will require tickets for admission. The job of distributing tickets will fall to the Hamilton County Democratic Party, according to Fisher campaign officials. Details on where and when tickets will be distrubted will be released later today.
