Ted Turner

Characterized by E.O.Wilson as one of the great originals of American history, businessman and media mogul Ted Turner is proof that capitalism and environmentalism can be joined to major humanitarian effect. As one of the world’s most powerful and effective philanthropists, his contributions include the Turner Foundation, which makes grants in the areas of the environment and population, and the United Nations Foundation that promotes a more peaceful, prosperous, and just world.
