Obama, Gates Team Up to Create â€œWorld Online Peace Corpsâ€?
Anticipation is building up around the UN Climate Change Conference scheduled for December 7-18 in Copenhagen, with environmental advocates expressing increasing concern that certain world powersâ€“including the United Statesâ€“wonâ€™t take a strong enough stand to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
But whatever comes of the Climate Change Conference with respect to international environmental accords, thereâ€™s one piece of exciting news we can expect to see coming out of Copenhagen: the launch of â€œHope Plus,â€? a new online platform thatâ€™s been dubbed the worldâ€™s â€œonline Peace Corpsâ€? by founder Phil Noble, also founder of PoliticsOnline and technology adviser to President Obama during his campaign.
