The billionaire businessman pledged Elon Musk On Twitter on Thursday, he was awarded a $ 100 million prize for developing the best technology to capture carbon dioxide emissions.
“Donate a $ 100 million prize for the best carbon capture technology… Details next week,” Musk, the CEO of Tesla, wrote on Twitter.
