Bono Takes the Stage on Climate Change

Bono had some serious gripes with the oil and gas industry at a panel during the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative on Tuesday. The U2 front man and co founder of the ONE Campaign criticized a lawsuit filed against the Securities and Exchange Commission that would require oil companies to disclose how much they pay for foreign oil leases.He spoke during a panel moderated by former President Bill Clinton about both government and corporate transparency and the effect they can have on poverty and health. The SEC disclosure rule was thrown out  by a federal judge in July, who said the data would undercut global competition. “As we know corruption is killing more kids than TB, AIDS, and malaria put together,” he said. “There is a vaccine … and it’s called transparency.” Click here for more information.n-BONO-CGI-large300
