    I wonder how much of this is taxpayer bailout money. They're a QUADRILLION dollars in the hole, what are they fucking around like this for?? Perhaps Obama blackmailed them; "No more bailouts unless you pretend to acknowledge this agenda with cash." At any rate, inquiring minds want to know.

    A bank is conducting bank business with a growth industry. How fucking noble.

    Seriously, am I missing something?

    The collection of talking points that says climate change can't be mitigated by humans changing their ways which combined with the dog whistle "bailout money" turns this into a bad thing. I think.

    I don't see anything good, bad, or indifferent other than a bank being a bank. It's not like they're giving anyone anything. They're investing money and services, which I'm sure they expect to be profitable.

    Yup. Any charitable donation is tax deductible AND they get positive PR.
