See, rich people want these things:
1. Flying cars
Wait, I think that's just a plane.
There we go.
2. To live forever
3. To have a world where they can do all this living forever
The fastest way to meet these goals is for rich people to put some of their money into research and conservation.
Step 1: Build state of the art buildings.
Step 2: Hire Science PhDs. They are super smart, and they need a home.
Step 3: Pay them moneys to do research and solve all the problems ever.
Step 4: Hire a Beatrice to do your outreach and explain to everyone what research is happening and how it will solve all the problems ever.
Results: You discover a new source of renewable energy, so our planet is clean and sparkly. You live a long, healthy life (as do the rest of us) and thoroughly enjoy driving your hover car. Also, no more whaling.
Now let's fast-track this, people.
