The 2030 Fund was a left-of-center environmentalist climate change advocacy organization affiliated with the controversial Public Interest Network of left-of-center. Its name was a reference to a claim that the world will reach an environmental “point of no return” in 2030, when the global average temperature rises 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-Industrial Revolution levels, supposedly precipitating widespread climate disasters. [1]

Kirk Weinert

Kirk Weinert was the president of the 2030 Fund. His bio page on the Public Interest Network, where he works as a senior writer and advisor in the “Development” and “Editorial and Creative” departments, describes him as “the in-house expert on polling, data analysis and reporting, small donor fundraising strategy, ballot measures and democracy issues.” [2]

Weinert also regularly blogs on Medium.com, primarily about environmentalist issues. [3]

Inactivity

In 2008, the 2030 Fund depleted its net assets from $1,173,051 to $11,417, largely by distributing $886,000 through two separate grants: the “Progressive Future Grant” ($100,000) and the “Environment America Grant” ($786,000). [4] The organization did not file a 990 Form with the IRS during any subsequent year,[5] and is presumed to be inactive.
