Yvon Chouinard, the eccentric, rock-climbing billionaire and founder of popular brand Patagonia, is giving away the company. Estimated to be worth $3 billion, Patagonia will be given to a specially-designed trust and a nonprofit organization to ensure all profits — about $100 million a year — are used to combat climate change.

Ali Velshi, MSNBC anchor and economic correspondent, joins Here & Now's Celeste Headlee with the latest.
