Cool Effect dedicates this article to the memory of Sid Yadav (right), Cool Effect Director Of Project Research, seen here conducting a site visit on a remote off grid island in India. Sid oversaw the rigorous vetting and selection process for all carbon reduction projects supported on Cool Effect’s platform since its inception. He also monitored ongoing project activities and made on-site project evaluations. In addition to bringing lengthy carbon verification expertise, Sid was passionate about creating a better life and future for those communities around the world who need it most.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
