John Doerr may be one of the richest people in the world. He may be one of the people who gets credit for much of the technology boom. But he's a dork of a parent.

According to this report, in a recent speech on the environment, he looked at his 15 year old daughter in the front row and said "I don't think we're going to make it".

What a stupid thing to say. Kids look to their parents for strength. They look to their parents to keep them safe. They look to their parents for answers. It doesn't matter if Doerr doesn't have the answers, he's not doing his kids any good by blubbering and whining.

At least he'll have plenty of money for the kid's therapy.

And by the way John, having money doesn't make you an expert on climate change... so stop acting like one.
